Angie’s List Review

Mr. Parrish came to our house for an initial visit; he and I discussed possible solutions for our specific house. He then returned the next evening and met with the family for a demonstration of their various products, options, coverage area, etc.  As a group, we then walked around the house and discussed the placement of equipment. Mr. Parrish is very professional in his presentation and demeanor. Once we decided on a plan, he provided a quote for the services. Later that evening, he emailed a contract and references that we could contact about his services. We called the references and all were pleased with his company's products and work

On the date of the installation, Mr. Parrish and a crew of two arrived and immediately began the installation. His crew was very polite and professional. They answered all questions and concerns as the installation progressed. They were thorough and took the time to ensure a neat, clean installation; cleaning up as they went (a very important part of the job). All equipment was up and running by the end of the afternoon.

As luck would have it, the first night we realized that one camera would need to be moved to ensure a better coverage of a specific area. I contacted Mr. Parrish the next morning; we arranged a time to move the camera. Once again, he was on time, and the job was completed quickly and professionally.

He has since called twice more, to ensure we are happy with the system as installed.  We would definitely recommend 1st Choice Security for your home or business.



“My security alarm began pulse panic mode at 7am this Sunday morning. I contacted and while on the phone with the representative, Steve from 1st Choice Security & Investigations came on the line and immediately talked me through the steps to disable the alarm system. Steve was extremely professional, knowledgeable about my specify system and very kind throughout the ordeal. The alarm was was disabled within 15 minutes. This is a top shelf company and Steve is an excellent and honest businessman. I will use this service again and recommend it to my friends.”



“My security system was off line and Steve P. troubled shot my issue over the phone. He looked for the best solution all the while saving costs. He ended-up having to come to my home. Steve knew the problem and had my security system back on line in no time. Cost were exactly as quoted and my satisfaction was exceeded. I would highly recommend 1st Choice Security & Investigations for any system needs.”



“After reviewing numerous proposals for Surveillance System at our neighborhood pool, I selected Capitol Protection & Investigations for the project.  Not only was there pricing much better than the other companies I spoke with, they were more diligent and professional.  They consulted with me on the design of the system as well as  the installation procedure.  After the install was performed, Steve walked me through the system and explained it in detail.  He then setup individual user accounts to manage access to our system.   Even after the install was finished, CPI responds to our calls within hours.  I would recommend Capitol Protection & Investigations for any size project.”



“Quick contact with us after we submitted the request on Service Magic and followed through timely on everything from appointment scheduling to installation. The security cameras they put in for us are great and they even taught us how to use the DVR. The other vendors contacted us but were slow to follow through which is why we ended up going with Steve and 1st Choice -- happy with the decision too.”



“Not only fixed camera systems, but are now our property Security Service as well!”



“Professional, courteous and affordable. I will use them again and would recommend them.”



Needed cameras for my store and they not only beat every other company that I talked to, they were very professional and thorough. I would highly recommend them....



“For a first time to deal with a PI, 1st Choice made it a smooth process. They kept everything confidential and made me feel secure about the whole thing. Their results were fast and accurate and the communication was amazing."



“We were sued, without the recordings that the Investigator got for us from the opposing party we had a very tough time proving our case.  1st Choice took the case and worked undercover to get us exactly what we needed to defend ourselves.  When the opposing attorney found out what we had on recording, they opted to keep the case out of court.  A very fair settlement was reached, that saved us a ton of money. Thanks.”
