Security Camera Installation

We were looking for someone to install a camera system we had purchased a few years ago & I found Ray on HomeStars. He responded promptly & we met to review our requirements. After discussing, we decided to go with an updated system instead (and liked the camera technology he recommended). We were on a budget and Ray was good not ‘oversell’ us a bigger (more expensive) system than we actually needed. The cameras are installed, wiring is nicely hidden, and we are happy with the system. We recommend Ray’s services.

Camera and Ring Doorbell Install

I have been in contact with Ray for close to 2 years and finally decided to take the plunge and get some upgrades to our security. He was patient with my requests throughout and quite educational as well. Totally pleased with his service. No hesitation to recommend.

Awesome...just awesome!!

Had to have my camera system upgraded. As with all the other things I have had done by Ray, he always goes above and beyond to please the customer. Ray took his time to educate on the differences of the cameras, and his prices are by far the best. Would recommend Ray to anyone and I have.

Security Cameras Installation

Ray is a very knowledgeable and professional technician. I wanted an inexpensive but reliable home monitoring system and I was looking for someone to install security cameras and Ray was recommended by one of my friends and got the above product installed by him.

He visited my home quickly after first-contact and made a recommendation based on my actual needs and excellent pricing. He scheduled the installation with an acceptable lead-time, visited as promised, and worked diligently to have a very good installation. His work was clean and top-notch.

The best thing about Ray is that he commissions every job himself and doesn't leave behind any unnecessary drywall patches or holes which is one of my pet peeves.

I am very satisfied with Ray's work. I would definitely recommend him and his company Total Security to all my friends.

Lirex cameras install

Clean install, courteous.
4 star rating due to unfamiliarity with Lorex cam system that was installed and recommendation to familiarize with them.
Everything else was done well but a bit longer than expected.

Company Response

Hi Daniel
Thank you so much for your review
As discussed PRIOR installation we had agreed that the price you pay was for RUNNING CABLES ONLY

We are not familiar with the workings and programming of any of the 1000s of camera systems that are available online

You asked us to run the cables only

Not to figure out the programming and settings of your system.

you figure out the programming and familiarize yourself with the system that you bought online

And if you are unable to do that you should
call the vendor/supplier you purchased it from
THAT IS ONLY FAIR

Our agreement was to run THE CABLES ONLY
Hope this helps you understand the scope of the project that was assigned to us
Appreciate your business

The following is a VERY IMPORTANT PUBLIC SERVICE MESSAGE

DISCLAIMER
BY PUBLISHING THIS PUBLIC MESSAGE EXPECTS
NO OBLIGATION TO BUY FROM TOTAL SECURITY CO
THIS IS A PUBLIC SERVICE MESSAGE
NOT MEANT TO DISCREDIT ANY COMPANY

Several alarm companies only have SUMMER PROGRAMS? They rent houses and hire large crews of university students which are offered large commissions ($400 to $500 per contract)to get you to sign up.

LEARN MORE by Googling "door to door alarm scam".

The PRESSURE:
Sales person won't leave even when you tell them to "Leave"
Sales person won't leave when you tell them "No Thanks"
Sales person won't leave when you say "I Already Have Your Products or Service"
Sales person name drops the name of your neighbor and makes it sound like "they signed up" or "they bought one" or "they referred me to you"
Sales person comes to the house several times and won't leave you alone
Sales person offers cheap cameras /chances to win vacations/free groceries for a year .....anything to ENTICE YOU TO SIGN THE CONTRACT
Once the system is INSTALLED you will be LIABLE for the FULL AND COMPLETE VALUE OF THE CONTRACT ( typically 3 years or more)
EARLY TO TERMINATION OF CONTRACT IS LEGALLY REFERRED TO " breach of contract" and customer is more than likely to pay early CANCELLATION CHARGES amounting to over $700 + THE FULL VALUE OF THE CONTRACT
Failure to. pay could result in collections , small claims and NEGATIVE REPORTING to the Credit Bureau

The SOLUTIONS:
Put Up Your Hand and "Say NO".
Immediately close the door and the sales person will eventually leave.
Tell them "You are Trespassing" and that you are calling the BBB Better Business Bureau, Consumer Protection Branch and the Police if they do not leave.
BBB 1-888-352-7601, Consumer Protection (Local office)
