“We have used Richmond Alarm for 25 + years. Recently, we had a complete camera system installed. The install went very well. It was a regather involved install as our home is 30 yoa and has a lot of knee walls . The install techs explained everything to us before starting . Also our sales person checked on the progress of the install. Richmond Alarm is a local company and delivers an excellent product & Service . The central alarm personnel are most helpful. Thank you.”
