The Bad

  • No Equipment Warranty Information
  • No Contract Length Disclosure

Hoffman Electronics does not list pricing information for its home security equipment, monthly monitoring, professional installation, or service call fees on its website. There is also no information provided on any offered warranties on equipment. The company does not appear to offer certain home automation and security features such as water detection sensors, video doorbell surveillance, or garage door access services for its customers. Customers may need to pay for installation and equipment upfront and may be financially responsible for technician service calls and replacement parts. The company does not provide details on how long its service agreement contract commitments are. However, the industry standard is typically three to five years for most home security companies. Customers are also required to obtain an alarm permit from their local municipalities that must be renewed on a yearly basis.

I love having Hoffman. I've had Hoffman for years. I have it for my home and both my businesses. The installers are great. Perfectionist, courtesy, always professional. I love that I can secure my alarm from my home or my cell. On days I'm rushing out of my house and I'm not sure if the alarm was set, I just check my phone. I get notifications on whose coming and going. If there's a neighborhood outage it notifies me. At both my business they not only set up the security they installed the cameras. They handle it all, no third party. I have recommended to all my family and friends. I've set my alarm off on a few occasions by accident and the operator calls immediately to check up to be sure everything is okay even if I disarmed it. Definitely worth the call.
