Is Koorsen security good?

Positive reviews

Great company and awesome customer service. -Xaviar N., Facebook January 2014

Negative reviews

Koorsen Fire & Security, I have called starting in July 2013. Brandi has been to our home plus calling Richmond 5 times to be told they will call me back. 7 months is a long time to say we had a lot of calls and we screwed up is what’s happened let me call and ask hubby. Leaving ASI coming to Koorsen will cost me more plus service… -Ginger M., Facebook 2/3/2014

We have a five-year contract with Koorsen, which ends in November. Last week, we heard someone breaking into a trailer at the side of our house. I pressed the panic button (silent alarm). Nothing happened after 15 minutes. No call, no police, nothing! I finally called the police myself. The monitoring system states that it never received a signal, although I used the panic button at both the upstairs and downstairs control panels. Although they broke their end of the bargain by not providing a working system, they insist we pay the final quarter of the contract. OK, it’s not a great deal of money, but it is the principal! For all we know, we have paid for a system that has never worked. Unreliable! -Anna B., Best Home Security Companys 8/19/2014
