We have been customers since May 2020 and we love Alder. Services are very affordable and the provide great service. If your alarm goes off for any reason they are sending you a text and calling you right away.

Every time my alarm goes off they on top of it. I really likes it cause I’m a 69 year old female that live by myself in a area I don’t want to live in. But with this alarm I feel a little safe.

No problems with system! Love it! The service has been great! Easy to use and I never had any problems with the service or the equipment! But most of all I love my outdoor camera! I can see from my entire driveway!

Sometimes it's confusing when I set my alarm or when they're testing the equipment I don't know how to shut it down. They're just friendly and efficient. It's a little pricey for me.

From the start , I Already knew what I wanted to order and the salesman was telling me you don't need to order all that . He was explaining all the ways to cover what I wanted to cover with less equipment. That in itself was refreshing. I was sent the receipt via email and the tracking number. After I received the alarm system I also received a phone call from customer service asking me if I had any question at that point. Again freshing. A few days later tech support called and asked how the install went and if I had any questions. I must say I really appreciated those phone calls. As for the install . It could not have been designed any easier. Every step was broke down to simplicity. When I did come up with a question , tech support clear it up after verifying the the accuracy of the answer . I felt reassured I was in good hands. If I was going to complain about anything it would be I was on hold for 10 minutes before I connected with a tech support agent and that in itself was not too bad.

Met Harrison--sales rep, last night. His knowledge of the product impressed me enough to invite him in. Because he was new to the company...he requested permission to invite his supervisor to the house. His supervisor arrived within minutes. Their professionalism impressed me enough to listen to their information. I purchased the product. As soon as the deal was made, they contacted an installer, who arrived within 15 minutes...and went to work. Within 45 minutes, our system was installed. The technician stayed and insured that, we understood the system completely..to include test runs. Best customer service I have ever received as a new customer.

Enjoyed my experience talking with Rob. He was very thoughtful an courteous in explaining the use and options of their product and use of the Adler Alarm system. He was very detailed in explaining cost and installation process an also how long it will take for the technicians to install the Alarm system. The Technicians was knowledgeable an took time to walk me through in using the digital display control panel. They also gave me new key remotes to put on my key chain so I can activate or deactivate without using the display panel. Also gave me a "Life Alert" also to wear as a necklace for convenience. I will definitely recommend Alder to family, neighbors an friends. Thanks again!!!

Was conned into switching from ADT. Wish I never had. Worse company ever. Our garage door alarm quit working and we called to get it fixed. It is now 3 months later and no repair man yet. Always some dumb excuse. I wanted to cancel them but can’t. They said the contract is for 6 years, so I guess I’m srewed for another 5 years. Would not recommend to anybody. Wish I could give them a 0.

I much regret buying into this useless alarm system. The smoke detector has malfunctioned and gone off 3 times sending the fire trucks to my house needlessly while I am frantically trying to cancel. So finally they are sending me new equipment. I have to install it myself. What am I paying them for? So if I want out of my 5 year contract, I have to pay them $2000. I am mortified at the other reviews I’m reading of it being nearly impossible even when the contract ends to get out of it, especially the one where the lady died and the family called to cancel but didn’t have her password and they turned it over to collections. If you are thinking of buying this system, don’t. These people are unethical. I feel like I will have to hire an attorney when my contract is up to get out of it.

Because when this system was advertised to me I was told I would rd over a door camera and never did . When I call back to ask the rep told me that wasn't included in my pricing that was one of main reasons why I even wanted the alarm system because I receive a lot of packages

Well, to be 100% objective, the service provided while in use was Good. they responded promptly when things arose, and contacted us when power was out. However, upon my father passing away 4 months ago i still haven't been able to do anything about cancelling as the service is no longer needed and was told the remaining buyout balance would be required to be paid by the estate. I mean, i know its a contract but these are not previously provided actions or objects. so why wouldn't the contract be nullified upon death as its for future services that don't need to be completed. Seriously I thought they were just getting hate from a few outliers unhappy with the service until this happened

Needs alot of improvement. Could have better customer service representatives. I'd like a call when my alarm is triggered not a text or email or nothing at all sometimes. Better security setups would make us feel safer. Better quality of camera's. Camera's are not good checking from the phone's especially at night time. Takes forever to load the app to even see the cameras. Camera's resolution is off jumps around. Camera's are not clear half the time. Poor quality in service.

Iffy at best!!! I have had issues with sensors not alerting when the doors were opened. I have had the panel go off when just sitting watching tv and alarm not armed. But the biggest complaint I have is I wasn't told that I need to register my alarm with the sherrifs department. I was fined for the false alarm and fined for not having my alarm registered. Really makes me want to do away with the alarm in all actuality.

I felt they took advantage of my situation, I thought I was talking with a representative from my current security co. When I asked if he was working under contract with the company I was with he didn't deny it just saying we're our own company. The technician did not put sensors on doors he listed as being secured & did not activate the remote but told me it was ready to go. I spent an hour on the phone with another technician setting these things up myself. I was charged the activating fee of $9.80 twice when I questioned it I was told they didn't know why that happened but they could not credit it until I sent them a copy of my bank statement proving both payments had cleared my account! I had no issues with the company I had been with for the past 10 years and I regret changing.

Customer support is horrible and your ability to successfully ship any replacement parts is abysmal. We are still waiting on a battery back up for our main alarm panel. You shipped it once to the wrong address which you have done before on other items. I point out that you need to ship to our mailing address and I have no idea as to what you do next.

The customer support I received was good, she was able to help me and give me money that was promised once I cancelled my other service. But, the salesmen need to be more honest to the customers so that they know what they are getting. The salesman I had was rude and lied to me.

They showed up at my door saying that they had taken over the company I was with. They're quick to respond if the alarm goes off. But it takes forever for tech support, I had a problem with the equipment and they never fixed it until they finally called me back. The alarm goes off unnecessarily because the sensor attachment falls off the door. It costs too much for what they are.

We signed up for Alder Security service by Brandon S. What an exceptional experience it was. I had thought of security for the home for years but because of Brandon's ability to explain and help me to choose a package that was the best for our family, it has become a reality. He was truly an exceptional representative for Alder's services. We are really happy that we at last have a security system for our home.

Currently experiencing the worst customer service ive ever experienced. Ive been with alder for a couple of year wich by the way the locked me in a contract if was not even aware of. Well I sold my home in june and thats when u found out i had to keep on paying for the service until the 5 year contract is over. Well I purchased a new home in october and it contacted alder again to get the services moved to my new home. I paid 2 different fees to get the new system installed at the new home. This is near January, ive called and spoke to 3 supervisors and all of them just told me to wait and told me they cannot tell me when the technician will be over to install it. Again, they have been taking my money every single month. Management keep on saying they will contact me but never does. Today I called them again and they told me that my order was cancelled due to system upgrades (whatever that may mean). I really dont get it. I can't get out of the contract, i got no security system at my house and they still taking my money every month. Horrible company and worst customer service. Please dont get yourself in a mess with this company, i wish i stayed with art wich its who i originally had...

I feel that the security system is way to basic. I feel like it's capable of doing more! The app needs to be revamped and redesigned. It's needs to have more capabilities like know the crime in your neighborhood and more user friendly.

I purchased the Alder product after speaking with a sales person over the phone. I was told information that was misleading and turned out not to be true. I asked to discontinue the service but was told I couldn't do that. I cannot afford the service yet every month the continue to bill me. I have had to cut back on my prescriptions in order to continue to pay this bill. I don't understand why your company treats people this way.

The cameras that were sent to me don't link to the Adler app, no problem, the interface just needs to be merged between the two. My real problem is that the cameras that are supposed to last 4 months, might last 3 days, even when set to low sensitivity with 6 second recording. The cameras also won't pick anything up unless it's roughly 10 feet in front of them, any distance longer than that and they never pick it up.
