  • Service Transfer

I called Ackerman because I was changing apartments in the same complex. I was quoted three different fees for transferring the service. It started at $400 and went down to $150.00. It took an entire week before I was able to speak with a Supervisor and a Sales Manager. The sales manager explained to me that he was trying to help me out by giving the transfer fee of $150. So, I would incur... Read more

The service person complained they the 2 wireless devices he tried to connect to my router were pieces of *** and after 2 visits " amended" my contract to revise the price after being told I did not want the service without the wireless...

Believe it not .... the ackerman is not even receiving the alarm signal. The alarm came on at home while we were out of home for a few days. We came back home hearing the alarm, rushed in, nervous, etc. When we called the company they said they didn't even receive the signal !?! In the past year with this company we had several times "bf-check" message appeared on the key panel, a technician... Read more

Wow. I should have read more on Ackerman. I live in Atlanta. My system was already in use at my house, with a local monitoring firm. I had Ackerman come in and audit my system. I added cameras to the system. The service tech left my home, and I started having problems. I had to get him to come back out, several days later. He blamed the cameras, which he didn't know how to install... Read more

Worst sales rep ever. Don't let Mr. Searles sell you anything. Originally this company came highly recommended but they have done nothing but disappoint. From erratic equipment performance to expensive TRIP charges to fix their failed equipment. But the worst was the sales rep: Every-time you ask him about the latest in upgrades to keep your system up to date (like remote app access, ... Read more

Monthly monitoring is charged automatically to my Visa. May 31 two charges were posted - one for the correct amount, another for $5 more. Otherwise the two entries were alike - samd name, same date. Ackerman (3 different people) says they show only the correct one was charged and since they don't show the $23.95 in error they can not correct it! Do they believe Visa makes this up? They gave...

Ackerman promised to switch my equipment. The service man came out, keep in mind my current system was working. He started trying to sell me more equipment. He disconnected my present system. When I would not but more equipment and agree to $65.00 an hour service charge I told him to reconnect my present system. He called his manager, he told me his manager said to reinstall my old equipment, but... Read more

There's some good things about Ackerman. I do get calls back pretty quickly when an alarm is set off. I've also never had any problems with the service itself. And I would say this is very good; it's what I'm paying for. I would love it though, if you could order a replacement power cord over the phone. You actually have to pay $80 for someone to come out. And that’s fine, I... Read more

Ackerman sent a polite sales rep to my home and got me all nice and settled into a contract and as soon as I start having issues with my equipment they start quoting the $89.00 charge for service calls. Their customer service staff will placed you on hold and become totally rude with you. Absolutely, no customer service skills. They told me after the fact that their equipment only works with...
