Home Alarm System / Wrecked Credit; Useless Service

1 United States Review updated:

I have wasted almost $2000 on a five-year contract for an alarm system I never used. Was pressured into it, and then, having paid all but a few months' worth (for nothing) SHS is the #1 ding on my credit report. This is a horrible company. I will try to get away from them before they renew me. I'm 2700 miles away from where the system is, and my tenants have no use for it. However, I was charged $80 to switch phone #s, to the renters, a meaningless exercise. Don't use this company. Compaint should go to Atty. General Richard Blumenthal of CT. Mine will.

    I saw an ad by another company (ALARM SVC CO OF AMERICA) in writing saying if you refer them a new customer they credit you 2 months free, refer 7 total and they give you free monitoring for life. Their rate is $25/mth, the agreement is 3 yrs, and they can use most existing alarm systems (switch for free). I've been using them for about a year and I'm quite happy with them, plus my first 2 months were automatically free. They've been around for 30 years I think and I can't find anything negative about them. I found them on Google and Facebook. Take a look at their page:
    If any of you sign-up with them, they're instructing me to give you this PIN code (so I get the referral = 2 months free)! PIN: IC-7000 (Thanks if you decide to)
