Extremely fast response to my initial inquiry. Job was scheduled and completed very quickly. All calls and questions were responded to accurately and quickly. Eric and Patrick were a very professional , and knowledgeable team. A lightning strike had rendered my security System inoperable . Startec responded to my home advisor request very quickly . There was an initial phone consult with Eric Farmer, and an appointment was scheduled to assess the situation. He asked ahead of the visit for Pictures of the main box and satellite panels so he could bring the likely replacement parts with him. Eric and co worker Patrick went through each component of the system sequentially and assessed that : the main circuit board , all the satellite panels , several sensors , and the transformer were all fried by the lightning strike. Because they had prepped ahead they were able to replace all the damaged components on the first visit and get the system up and running on that day. On The second visit a few days later they set up the central monitoring ,also provided an app so I can arm / disarm and check status of the system from my phone. They also were able to link my fire alarm system into this whole monitoring system, a feat that my prior security contractor told me was impossible. For a reference I will also mention that For this repair I initially checked in with another security company (that shall remain nameless) headquartered in Boston . I did not use home advisor to find that outfit. After 2 months of phone tag and several rescheduled appointments I gave up on them and checked in with Home Advisor who then recommend Startec. Bottom line , Startec was ; Fast , professional , knowledgeable, and a pleasure to work with . I can comfortably say that I highly recommend Startec for any security system repair issues, and although I did not do a fresh install with them, I think I can safely say that the excellent quality of the work I experienced would carry over to that side of the business. Ps I would also recommend sticking with Home Advisor for finding contractors in general. I have found over the last 10 yrs that when ever I have used a home advisor contractor that the experience has always been very positive.

Review by in Plymouth, MA
I needed an old system re-activated. Eric & his crew came the next day & installed a new keypad & board. They got me up & running in no time at all, for a very reasonable price. Excellent job; thank you. ADT kept calling & trying (very hard) to sign me up for monitoring & much higher priced equipment. Anyway I highly recommend Startec.

The service techs were punctual, courteous and worked efficiently. One suggestion, supply the service people paper shoe coverings so not to leave dirt on customer's floors.

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.
