Post #1 of 10
We had an elaborate motion detecting/entry door fully and constantly monitored home alarm system installed by this company about three months ago. Someone on another board is poor-mouthing this company saying that they cannot be depended upon to respond to the alarm when it is tripped based upon what this person, who lives in a gated development in West Ajijic, has said he has been told by friends or neighbors. Well, we have had two attempted break-ins on our property during the past three months, one at 4:00AM and one at 3:00AM, and we have also had several false alarms as we and various guests got used to the system and the company has always called immediately and, if warranted, as in the attempted break-ins, has had a representative and the cops at our property within minutes. The company´s management of the alarm system and its absolutely dependable immediate response time have both been exemplary in every respect. I don´t post on that board so am posting here instead. I consider it highly irresponsible for someone to publicly impugn this company´s excellent reputation and performance on a community forum based strictly upon hearsay and I´m surprised that other board allows such untoward behavior.
We highly recommend S.O.S.E. in every respect. S.O.S.E. is not cheap but it seems to me one does not get cheap with an alarm system that can protect you from having your home trashed or being assaulted in your home in the middle of the night. By the way, we have lived at Lakeside for nine years and never felt the need for this sort of security in all that time until this year. Don´t tell me times haven´t changed.
This alarm system scares the living hell out of these punks and they have managed to escape both times the motion detector in our garden went off before they entered our home and before the cops got there. We, therefore, put up some concertina wire atop our surrounding stone walls and, so far, have had no additional problems since.
