Very professional. Work quickly and know each step so solving small problems takes very little time. Explain technical things so non-techs can understand easily. Original estimates and quotes very complete.

Project: Install, Service, or Repair Surveillance Cameras - For Business
From bid to installation, the company's representatives were professional, but very friendly. I felt comfortable asking questions, and all were answered in a manner that I understood.

Consultation emphasized wire pulls above cielings but virtually all are exposed, a mild disappointment that can be mitigated. The install crew were excellent fellows and the minor hole in the garage ceiling was repaired quickly and professionally. I do wish the guys could have sent a little more time demonstrating how the system management works. It has been a frustrating learning curve. All in all a good experience despite some unexpected changes to the original plan.
Response by Efficient Communication Solutions, Inc.: Ken, Thank you for your review. I am glad the installation went well, except for the minor hole in the garage ceiling which we had a contractor fix within 3-days. The Lorex Video Surveillance system is actually sold for consumer self install although many people such as you prefer to have young technicians crawling up laddrers and in attics, which we gladly do. We also provide basic instructions on how to use the system. Since we charge by the hour, believe me our technicians will stay longer or come back out train you as mucvh as you need. Or, you can call Lorex Technical Support for free as long as the system is under warranty.

Very specialized service for installing video surveillance systems.I found ECS via home advisor as I could not get an electrician to return my call. We bought our system at Costco. I recommend you contact ECS before you buy your system. They have suggestions so you buy the best one and don't get ripped off or buy junk. The install is very professional but expensive. I would not want to do it myself as it involves being on a ladder, hardwiring and snaking cables in and out of right spaces (my observations). It took 2 technicians 10 hours. It also was a 2 hundred more than the top range of the estimate which had been explained to me that this was possible prior to the install. I am pleased. Everything is working well. We are enjoying it.
Response by Efficient Communication Solutions, Inc.: Nicole, Thank you for your review and your kind words. I am very glad that you are happy with your Lorex Video Surveillance system. As for the install, each project, building, house, attic, crawl space, etc. has its own unique challenges so it's very hard to "estimate" exactly how much time it's going to take our technicians to complete the work. I'm glad that the system is working well and that you're happy!

Scheduling hitches, with mu;tiple requests by the company to change install dates. I wanted the system NOW, thats the point of having a video security system, and waiting through several postponements to install it results, by definition, in exposure of the property to potential vandalism / theft while the system sits uninstalled. Marked variance between estimate and final bill. I made no changes or additions. Disturbing. Installers damagin wallboarsd / sheet rock ceilings while working in attic. Still discussing repair. Installers should not be putting feet / hands through ceiling while in attic.
Response by Efficient Communication Solutions, Inc.: Jim, I'm sorry you're not as happy now with the install as when you offered soft drinks to our installers after telling them what a great job they had done upon completion. This is the first I've heard of "putting feet / hands through ceiling while in attic". Usually if a problem occurs our technicians discuss it with the hoeowner and we take care of it ASAP. (Read Ken Jackson's Review) I wish you would pay your bill.

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.
