One product sold wasn't able to be guaranteed as outlined by salesman. Installer was very professional
Response by Watchdog Security: The client wished to add an microphone to the installation once the installation was nearly completed. The microphone option was discussed prior to the installation at which time the client declined. The receiver to allow audio is different than the regular one that was order based upon the initial work request that was signed by the client.

The installation guys showed UP on the day they were scheduled for. I didn't get a call telling me they would show UP at a particular time. It was also extremely cold (4 degrees) and I let the installers come into my house to warm themselves. Finally I just let them go on to their next job. The cameras work but they didn't get them enabled to work over the internet and that is the real reason I bought the surveillance cameras. I was disappointed on the level of service provided, so overall I'd recommend them but make sure you hold them to EVERYTHING you expect to be done.
Response by Watchdog Security: We have contacted this customer and he acknowledges that the original work order did not request the cameras to be connected to the internet. Customer also stated once he purchased an smart phone he would have us comeback out to network the cameras to his phone. Customer stated he was going to change his review and rating on our company.

From salesman Kyle's first visit to final installation visit by Guy everything went pretty smooth. Patrick was out main installer and he was very good at what he did. Everyone at this company was very professional. If I ever need service I am sure I can rely on them.

Seal of Approval

What is the screening process that Service Professionals go through in order to become members of the HomeAdvisor network?

  1. Verify Trade License
    HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
  2. Verify Insurance
    As a part of our screening process, we encourage professionals to carry general liability insurance. We require coverage for hundreds of services.
  3. Verification of State Business Filings
    For business types that require a Secretary of State filing, we confirm that the business is in good standing in the state in which it is located.
  4. Criminal Records Search
    HomeAdvisor uses 3rd party data sources to conduct a criminal search for any relevant criminal activity associated with the owner/principal of the business.
  5. Sex Offender Search
    We confirm that the owner/principal is not listed on the official state Sex Offender web site in the state in which the owner/principal of the company is located.
  6. Bankruptcy Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the history of the principal/owner of the business for bankruptcy filings by or against them.
  7. Legal Search for Civil Judgments
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for state level civil legal judgments entered against them.
  8. Liens Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for liens placed against them.
  9. Identity Verification (SSN)
    HomeAdvisor verifies the social security number(s) of the owner/principal for identity check purposes. This check applies primarily to smaller business entities.
  10. Identity Verification (Reverse Phone Lookup)
    We conduct a reverse business phone lookup to identify records matching the phone number information provided by the business.

NOTE: Member service professional information confirmed as described above may change or expire over time; while HomeAdvisor attempts to maintain accurate and up-to-date information, and confirms changes when notified, we cannot guarantee that profile and screening information is accurate. Therefore, we recommend that before working with a service professional you verify that information presented is still current and/or acceptable to you.
