I never write reviews, but I had to come out of hibernation to share my experience with California Security Pro. It was exceptional.
We were traumatized after a break-in and decided that it was time to get serious about security.Larry came within one hour of our call, which was at 8:30pm. He was conscientious, pleasant, efficient, knowledgeable, professional, and not pushy in any way. It felt like a consultation, not a sales call, and the system we selected felt like the perfect fit. (So happy that we could get an alarm system that was mobile-enabled, by the way).
The installation was scheduled within one business day, and was also a great experience.
We feel so much safer in our home. The Bay Area sadly has the highest property theft rate in the country. I wouldn't look at any other dealer.
Nicholas F., San Francisco, CA (Carl tech)Yelp Review
Personally, I never like or trust any security dealers because they always trying to sell you more stuffs that you don't need but until I met Larry Maerina. Larry took the time explain all about ADT security pro system and make sure we understand what we need. He is very honest and very professional. He's not try sell me all kind of things instead he walks around my house and tells me what's best to secure my home. Installation schedule was on time, he sent the best guy name Pat, he did a wonderful job on it. My parent and wife love it.
No need to search around for other Security Company, I highly recommend to give Larry Maerina a call at ADT California Security Pro. You will receive the best service you ever had. This is real my friends....Call him and you know what I'm talking about. I'm very appreciated and Larry Maerina deserved +++ 5 Stars.

Larry went above and beyond to make sure the system we got was perfect for our situation. He was very easy to work with and we feel confident and safe with the system that he and Carl Henderson installed. Carl was efficient, extremely competent and thoughtful. Installation was quick and just as expected. We are thoroughly satisfied with the service and the system.
M. J.,El Sobrante, CA
Great company with solid people to work with. Our sales rep, Larry, was a great help. He worked with us to provide the best deal and followed up quickly with installation and setup. He, along with the installer Carl, were both there to set the system up. They were professional, diligent, and cleaned everything up before leaving. I highly recommend them!
Alexander C.,San Francisco, CA
LARRY MAERINA IS AMAZING!!! We were referred to Larry when we bought our new house! He spent a lot of time evaluating our needs and set up exactly what we need! I recommend asking for Larry, he's not a pushy salesman but a nice down to earth professional.
Mel J.,Walnut Creek, CA (New Homeowner Tracy,CA)
Our area is starting to be somewhat unsafe recently and I am glad we were able to talk to Larry Maerina because he took the time to explain everything about their security system to us so we were able to really understand it and we thought it is a great deal.

We highly recommend Larry Maerina at ADT. We live in Marin County and Larry did a great job selling us our ADT home security system. He is very professional and honest. He gave us a great monthly deal and even came by during the installation to insure everything was installed properly by the installation tech. He's also been very responsive regarding any and all follow up up questions/issues. We are very satisfied with the level of customer service we have received!
Erica B.,Atlanta, GA (New Homeowner Kentfield,CA)
I was very impressed with the customer service and attention to detail that Larry Maerina, the area rep in SF, gave me and our new business. He really took the time to explain everything in depth, he went above and beyond. This helped me make my choice to select California Security Pro vs. the competitors. Also, having ADT equipment really sealed the deal; it's simply the best. A+++ def would recommend, but ask for Larry!!
T L.,San Francisco, CA
Larry Maerina came out to alarm our place, and he was fantastic - so knowledgeable and friendly and helpful. He even provided a few safety tips about the garage and people being able to break in using a coat hanger...I was very impressed with the technician's service as well - it was quick, and the unit is attractive on my wall and easy to use. Thanks very much!
Stacey L.,Hercules, CA
I did a lot of homework in the search for a home security system and finally called CSP to come do a survey of our property and what solution they would recommend that would cover fire, intrusion and video monitoring. Larry Maerina come out shorty after my call and reviewed the property in detail. He explained the particular vulnerable points and the design concept for the system that CSP would install and the advanced protection that it would provide. Larry was great to work with and made clear that he will be around long after the system is up and running to make sure CSP continues to meet all of our protection needs. It was a long search, but I'm glad that I found Larry and the CSP team.
Peter R.,San Francisco, CA
A good friend referred us to Larry Maerina who came out for a visit to assess our home and he was just great. He went through the house, assessed the best spots for each detector and camera and gave us a great deal. I highly recommend his services. Direct, efficient and super nice. His direct number is 707-373-3218.
Vanessa M.,Berkeley, CA
Everyone involved in the process was excellent! Larry did not sell us what we thought we wanted, but what we needed. Jesse was installing at our home for hours making sure everything was perfect. He went through scenarios of what could happen if we went one way or another. Overall my husband and I are extremely pleased.
ELIZABETH OROPEZA RYAN, EL SOBRANTE, CA
Recently had a security alarm installed in our home in San Francisco. Larry Maerina, Area Representative, and Jesse Amatrone, Technician, were professional, knowledgeable, and a pleasure to do business with. The system is well designed, the installation was neat with minimal disturbance. I highly recommend California Security Pro-ADT Authorized Dealer.
Dan S.,San Francisco, CA
Don't screw around with any other alarm company. Call Larry Maerina, he will visit you, design the optimal system so you never overpay, work with Micah who will do an excellent efficient installation and both of these guys will only be a cellphone call away if you need them. It is rare today to have such good customer service. I did not know Larry or Micah before contacting their company, but now I do and recommend both of them very highly.
Jeff S.,Kentfield, CA (New Homeowner Greenbrae, CA)
My home got burglarized so I wanted to put an alarm system in the house.I got 3 quotes. The 3 systems were all similar. Larry Maerina gave me the best price and the best service. The day the technician came to install, Larry came over to make sure that the system worked. I appreciated that . Thank for the good service.
Hang Wah M.,Albany, CA
Larry Maerina was the sales rep from California security pro. He was prompt and took the time to go over in detail everything I needed to know about alarm systems. He showed me what ADT has to offer and I was extremely pleased with the system that allows me to talk with a live person when the two way voice is activated. The price was affordable and less than I expected. He was professional and very patient. I highly recommend him to anyone who is in need of an alarm system. The installer wasPatrick Amatrone. He was prompt and the installation was quick and clean. He was thorough and explained how the system works. Larry showed up as he said he would when the system was installed. Thank you for making the process easy.
Nirattaporn J.,Benicia, CA
Larry Maerina visited the house I manage and gave me a quote on what it would cost to replace an old outdated alarm system. He was great. I was quoted a reasonable price and soon after the new system was up and running. Micah was on time & did an amazing job. I could not ask for better installer .
Carb Q.,San Francisco, CA
I worked with Larry Maerina to switch my home security home system from a small company to ADT, and the experience is great! Larry is very detail orientated to explain to us how the system works, and gave us tips about how to keep our house safe. Their equipment and technology are way more advanced than other companies that you can check hour home on your iPhone or iPad no matter where you are. And best of all, Larry is willing to commit to best price match so you don't need to shop around to check on the price. I end up paying less than the system I used to have. So I highly recommend to call Larry if you are shopping around for a home security system.
C H.,Burlingame, CA
I am very pleased with this company!! I was out of town when a friend informed me that my house had been vandalized, door knob pulled off etc but no entry, thankfully. I found this company through a web search and the receptionist ( sorry I didn't get her name) was very helpful and sympathetic and was able to send Larry out to the house that very afternoon, this was on a Saturday after Christmas too, very impressive to have such fast and friendly service! Larry was very thorough and spoke to me after assessing the house with the help of my friend. He quoted me very reasonable a rates and included a online discount and free sensor to boot. They arrived promptly on Monday and installed it and had it running in less than an hour and a half. I can access the alarm with ADT Pulse from my phone or iPad which helps a lot due to traveling . All in all a great experience, I would have done this a year ago if I had known it was this easy and affordable!
Robin F.,Poway, CA, "El Cerrito New Homeowner, CA
We installed a security system for our new home as well as an outside shed. Larry Maerina was so nice and helpful in helping us decide the best set up for us. He was very professional. So was the installer who came later to install the system. Larry even came during the install to check to see that everything was running smoothly. I would recommend them to those seeking a home security system.
Helene L.,Orinda, CA
I contacted Larry Maerina from California Security Pro on the Friday prior to Labor Day weekend. Our home had just been broken into and I was leaving town for the week and worried about my wife being home alone. Larry came by the house OVER THE HOLIDAY WEEKEND to get the process started for the security system! Larry was honest and to the point about what would be best for our home and gave us a very fair estimate. The home already had an outdated security system and Larry gave us a plan to incorporate as much of the existing equipment as possible to save us money. The installation was scheduled ASAP and Carl Henderson came by to install the system. Carl is very professional, friendly, and prompt. He installed the system and my wife was very comfortable with him at the home and impressed with the service. Larry also came to the home again for the installation to make sure everything went smoothly. Oh, and by the way, it was all done before I left town for my trip! We have had a few minor glitches with our system caused by using our older equipment NOT sold to us by Larry. I contacted Larry and Carl was at the house before we knew it to update the out of date sensors that were misbehaving and the system works just as they promised. Great customer service. We are very satisfied with the service and system and highly recommend Larry and Carl to anyone interested in a home security system. Thank you Larry and Carl!
Scott C., El Sobrante, CA
I recently bought home and i was pleasantly referred to an ADT sales rep, Larry Maerina. I called Larry and scheduled an appt. He was punctual and very professional. I never knew the crime activity in this area until he showed us on http://crimereports.com, which i now follow closely. He was very patient with me as I had many questions just to make sure i was making the right decisions. He pointed out many parts of my home that are vulnerable to forced or unforced entries. The information about burglaries and the benefits of the ADT alarm system made me look no further at the other alarm companies. I am thankful for his patience and his not so typical salesman approach. I was made to feel I had control and I made the right decisions. He also did not sell me anything that i did not need.
The installer was Carl Henderson. He was early and was very pleasant, professional and very efficient. He explained how the system works and made me comfortable using the system/keypad. I know first hand why this company is getting 5 stars. They have employees who are customer service oriented and follows through. Larry came to the installation just to make sure everything was going smoothly. Carl cleaned up after the installation and removed all debris- that's exceptional service!!!
Loreto M.,Vallejo, CA
Larry Maerina, sales representative of ADT California Security Pro, came to my house and presented the options available. I am very pleased with the presentation. I am a customer oriented person so I am very picky. I am completely satisfied with the service and information provided. I was recently burglarized and my truck was vandalized. With the security system from this company, i feel more secured for myself, children and my home. I am more than willing to recommend this company and the sales rep, Larry Maerina. The technician who installed my equipment was Larry Martinez. He was punctual and was actually early. He was professional and courteous. I like the fact that they came in and did the installation and so that my neighbors know i have an alarm system and not just the sign.Everyone in my immediate ares has ADT. I am feel more secured now that I have one too!
Adriana C., Oakland, CA
I am a new customer of ADT security in Richmond, ca I was very impressed with the service I recieved especially from Larry Maerina. He was very professional and explained every step thoroughly, and followed through with checking back with me. The security system has already made us feel more safe and we are happy with ADT.
Ann R., Richmond, CA
Larry Marina came highly recommended to us. We called and within 4 hours, Larry was at our door. He gave us an overview of the company, our location, and services provided by ADT. He evaluated our home and did not try to over sell anything to us. He has great knowledge of our community and crime patterns. In addition to customizing our home security, Larry gave us great tips on DIY ways to improve the security of our home. He answered our endless questions and explained different scenarios. Several days later, Micah, the technician came and installed our system in an hour. He explained our system, gave us tips, showed us how to control our system via their website or apps. Larry stopped by after the installation to make sure we were happy with our system and answer additional questions.We are very pleased with the services Larry and Micah provided us with. We highly recommend them. They are friendly, punctual, and respectful.

5 star rating for sales rep Larry Maerina and system installer Hector from California Security Pro / ADT. A job very well done.Recently I decided to put in an alarm system in my home for added security and a peace of mind. Without knowing much about the different alarm companies, I naturally went on line to do my research. Even though I always take on-line reviews with a grain of salt, since CSP has very good ratings, I decide to call them for a consultation.My sales rep Larry was extremely pleasant to work with. He was punctual, professional, informative and patient in explaining the security options he has to offer. Never at any time did I feel like I was under pressure to close the sales. When I told him I have an appointment with another alarm company for competitive bidding, he pointed out the pros and the cons and differences between the different systems without any negative talks which I found to be very professional. When I called Larry back for the 2nd consultation, he was once again punctual and patiently answered all my questions. During the signing of the contract, he carefully explained all the terms and charges to me and changed the length of contract with ADP from 3 to 2 years. I scheduled the installation on a Saturday and was given a 2 hour time slot appointment. About 1/2 hour before my installer Hector arrived, CSP called me to inform me he was on his way. Just like Larry, Hector was punctual, professional and courteous. He was very efficient with the install and completed it in about 1 1/2 hour. After the installation, he walked me through the system, showed me the different features and patiently explained to me how to use the system. From the sales to the installation, everything went very smoothly and so far I am quite satisfied with my alarm system. I would definitely recommend CSP to anyone who is interested in getting an home alarm system.

Great professional services specially Larry Maerina is real professional to work with.
Yasir M., Hercules, CA
Larry maerina gave me a great deal. Awesome guy. Recommend service.
Muhammad M., Richmond, CA
Larry Maerina was available immediately and was very helpful. He provided tips to help prevent burglaries and created a system that fit our needs. We have ADT in our other home and the price is great for the service you are receiving. The best part is the ability to monitor your home from your cell phone and the great customer service.
Lisa T., Richmond, CA
We finally decided on investing on a home alarm, my aunt recommended us to Larry Maerina. Larry did a home assessment and we were extremely pleased with his service. I am always a skeptic when it comes to sales people, but Larry was very honest. There were other equipments that i thought we needed and would've made the install more expensive but Larry explained the pros and cons and talked me into not getting them because we don't need it. He was true to his word that he will not try to sell us any unnecessary extras.
On the day of the install, Carl Henderson showed up. He was very professional. I always like to observe and ask a lot of questions whenever something is being installed in my home and Carl was extremely patient with me. He was quick and very efficient.
Post install, Larry showed up at my house and followed up as he promised just to check in and to make sure that everything went well. Two thumbs up for both Larry and Carl! Will definitely recommend!

To date, my experience with CSP has been nothing short of amazing. Larry was incredible and accommodating to my rigid schedule. Hector did a wonderful job installing the system and showing me how to use it. I would certainly recommend CSP to my friends. In fact, I already forward your info to a friend who recently purchased a home and is looking for a efficient security system. The Pulse system is seamless and I enjoy using it. Thanks again for the great service.
