Had my alarm system updated to cellular and WiFi capabilities. I really like the new system . I can turn it on and off and review settings all by IPhone . I’ve used General Security and their services over 5 years now with no problems. Price isn’t bad. I renewed with a 3 year contract. Good service !

The quality of their workmanship and their reliability as well. Very happy to have General Security as my service company

PJ Miller -

Their alarms suck. They do not work and they stick you with a contract to pay even when the alarm does not work. We moved and the new owners told us that General is trying to get them to sign up. They told them NO WAY.
