Without intending to, I set off a false alarm and was very satisfied with the quick response received. I sleep peacefully at night confident that my AlarmForce alarm is helping to protect me and my possessions.

I have had the AlarmForce system installed in my home since the company first started. I am really satisfied with the service they provide. If I happen to have any problems with my system malfunctioning or if I have questions regarding my system, the matters are dealt with promptly. I have recommended AlarmForce to my family and friends and they have had the system installed in their homes. They have reported great satisfaction with the system and the company. I will continue to recommend this company as it is very reliable and the system is a great one.

I've been with Alarmforce for over 20 yrs. and have never regretted it. I come home feeling safe and I sleep like a baby - knowing my home is "being watched" 24/7. Friendly voices are there immediately if and when we trip up or if someone dares to enter. Keep up the good work. Thank you.

When my mother broken her hip last spring I'm embarrassed to say she was NOT wearing her AlarmForce pendant you can lead a horse to water but she managed to crawl from the bathroom to the bedroom after several hours and get immediate help from the incredibly patient operator on the other end. She has learned her lesson.

Recently we had a technician come in regarding my alarm working incorrectly. He fixed the issue and spent about one hour addressing our concerns for safety in our basement. We had a motion sensor installed. Any time your people have been here they are knowledgeable and patient. I am very satisfied with AlarmForce.
It's good to know that my house is protected when I leave for work in the morning and that my house has not been burglarized when I return home, it is very comforting to have the Alarmforce home security in place. Thanks AlarmForce.

We moved into our new home just over five months ago and would not want any other company to protect our home other than AlarmForce. Customer service is excellent and the agent that came to our house to do the installation was very pleasant and courteous. We have recommended AlarmForce to friends and family as we think the two way voice feature is great. That is what sold us.

I chose AlarmForce to protect my business knowing that a live voice will be heard by any intruders. Their customer service and response time is the best in the industry. Why go with anyone else when you can go with the best!
