"Alert has a great alarm system, but what really makes them shine is their communication and customer service attitude. As a former customer of ADT, after making the switch to Alert it was much easier to get assistance. The difference was night and day. Would recommend."
"We've been using Alert for many years through several moves. Very happy with their service, employees and responsiveness. Everyone I've dealt with at Alert is knowledgeable, pleasant, and helpful. I recommend Alert Protective without reservation!"
