  • Home Advisor — Top Rated Service

    ★★★★★ Review by Janet C. in West Columbia, SC 100% happy customer. They installed a 5-camera outdoor video surveillance system in my front and back yards. The product and service, and professionalism were stellar. Icing on the cake is that they are a local family-owned company and not a national behemoth. They are part of our community and they take immense pride in the quality of their work. I hired them based on these great reviews and now I have the honor to add another 5-star review. This company is the one you want. I intend to remain their customer. It is so nice to receive quality for an acceptable price. I told them they can give out my contact as a reference for future customers. Words do not adequately describe how terrific they are. ★★★★★ Review by a homeowner in Columbia, SC They were great, Jamie was very professional and rapid respond on contacting me back with my quote, and got me set up in a few days. I would recommend him highly, I was very pleased!
★★★★★ Review by Robert J. in Lexington, SC They installed a multi camera outdoor video surveillance system on my home. Their price was quite reasonable compared to other bids. The professionalism of the install team was great. They knew what they were doing and were in/out in the estimated time and were quite neat; you would not know they were there after they left. They gave a very detailed explanation/demo of the system. I would not hesitate recommending them.

    ★★★★★ Review by Samantha H. in Aynor, SC The two installers were on time & very informative about the system. Cleaned up behind themselves, very friendly and professional. The company and installers will be recommended to all my friends.
    ★★★★★ Review by Debra W. in Blythewood, SC Ashton came to my home day after calling. He provided demo of system. No other company provided demo. He evaluated my home, recommended options within my budget. He followed up with me, took my sensitive info while at my home. When technician (Lance) came, he installed equipment based on my preferences. Cleaned up pretty well, gave me a demo before leaving. Lance arrived a few minutes ahead of schedule. Work was completed within time promised. Everything is excellent! ★★★★★ Review by Kim C. in West Columbia, SC 
Jamie was awesome! He was always on time and since we have had our cameras, he has come out several times to help us with IT issues that were not his responsibility! He is very reasonably priced. Knowledgeable about his product. We have recommended him to several of our friends.
