Twice in the last few months two different "technicians" (as they called themselves) cornered me when I was outside in my front yard. They have a slick sales tactic. They told me the neighbors on either side of me had their service, which is a complete lie because I asked my neighbors after the first guy told me that. Both guys continued to try to interrogate me about my current home security... Read more

Protection one can not be trusted straight from the sales guy, They promise to repay you with a gift card to balance out the 149.00 dollar fee. They say give me a call and I'll bring the gift card to you. You can't get a hold of the sales guy. They are sure quick to take your money. There service is horriable. I pulled the system out of the wall, no contact from police at all. You call to cancel... Read more

I signed what I thought was a 22 month contract on an IPad signature. When I tried to see how much longer we have on it the agent told me it was a 44 year contract. We asked her to send paperwork that we signed and it had my signature but was added to a different contract. Do you think I can find my paperwork? Oh heck no! So now we're stuck but believe me when I say I will NEVER have them again.... Read more

I have called Protection One three times in the last month when our alarm was accidentally triggered because the volume is so weak on our keypad and my husband is hard of hearing. I was subjected to an unacceptably long wait during which a nonstop commercial played and I couldn't override it. I truly resent being taken advantage of in this fashion. Other companies either play music or allow... Read more

Had a system installed. Was promised a good price and money returned from the other company. Since I was double billed. So after talking to customer service lady. Was extremely rude talking down to me. Was trying to bill me installation. For a no cost to me when installed. ADT is a better and cheaper businesse. And gas been around longer. Add comment

They charge $115 to replace a dead battery. They said the battery dies if your power goes out for longer than 6 hrs. Add comment

Offered me a "free" home alarm system.Said that only 4 homes were getting this and she already had 3(the old do it now or you won't get this chance again routine). Said that they would give me $1500 to put a small sign in my yard to advertise for them. I live on a dead end street, who's gonna see it?Then I found out the scam. They give you a credit then get you for monitoring fees, replacement... Read more

System faults and failures let me to cancel and received talk down pressure to stay. Also will not be reimbursed for 2 months of prepayment. Robbed! Have had multiple false alarm issues with the Protection1 system. I've had to provide my key and pass code to neighbors to come in my house while I'm gone and have them shut the system down. Have had a Protection1 service inspect and give the okay... Read more
