What are Koorsen Customer’s Saying?

When choosing a home security system, making a decision is easiest when you have an understanding of what customers are saying.

Let’s start with a few of the positive points that customers are touching upon:

  • The company provides customers with excellent service
  • Installation professionals know what they are doing
  • Very professional throughout the entire process
  • Provides users with fire, medical, and home protection
  • There are glass break sensors
  • Flood protection is included in some packages
  • Carbon dioxide detectors are also an option

The above features are pretty positive and round back to the heart of the company’s intentions, which is to provide users with quality service and security measures.

Now that we’ve covered a few of the positive customer comments, here are some of the main issues that arise:

  • Installation cost is $100
  • Some customer service issues
  • Five year contract is difficult to get out of
  • Some users haven’t been contacted during a security threat by the call center
  • There may be some better home security companies in the area

One of the most significant customer issues is the contract. However, there are some sources that indicate that it is possible to cancel the contract if you are dissatisfied with the service. In terms of this point, it is best to verify with the representative before you sign on for the service. It may be the case that in some areas, it is possible to break the contract, while in others, it isn’t based on your state. The contract may also include a provision that indicates whether you have the option to cancel.

Becoming a dad ignited my interest in home security. I started with security systems and quickly fell in love with the fast-evolving internet of things (IoT). I love to review home security and smart home products, and learn about new technologies in the IoT space.
