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
