Whether you are a visitor or a local resident, Oakland certainly has an exciting season in store for us. Knowing that, it's only a matter of time before we are headed to one of these lively events, without a worry in our mind about the safety of our home and belongings. Sometimes people will find themselves in that moment where they actually think about a home security system, but then just minutes later, life takes over again and its forgotten for months and months or even years and years. At some point in time we will realize how important it is to have the peace of mind knowing that ADT is behind you and your belongings every time you are away. It is extremely important to protect your Oakland home with an ADT Home Security System. Property crime is usually at its peak during the warmer season so you can check your local Oakland crime and be informed of what's going on at victims' homes.

Even those of us who do have an ADT home security system, forget to arm it before we leave the house from time to time. Well with an ADT Pulse security system it's as easy as a push of a button, literally! All you have to do is login to your ADT Pulse App and be able to arm, disarm and monitor your security cameras all in the palm of your hand.

If you haven't already taken the steps toward protecting your home, family or business, then please schedule your free home security review. What's even more convenient is that usually we can have your home security system installed within 48 hours from the time that your ADT Oakland Security Consultant meets with you.

"Presented an offer that we couldn't refuse."  

Brandon reached out to us after we had already set up a DIY security system (our first) with another provider.  We were pretty happy with it but we figured we would let Brandon come over and offer his opinion and expertise.  Although we were not necessarily anticipating switching companies, Brandon's thoughtful presentation and generous meeting with us really blew us away.  That's something you don't really get with a lot of other providers.  On top of that, Brandon offered to match (and ultimately beat) whatever price and features that our current provider was offering.  At that point, he had not only won us over but had presented an offer that we couldn't refuse.  
Bravo, Brandon, you're the best!  Thank you!

"He made the process very easy for me."

I recently had a terrible house fire and the house is empty, and hard to secure. Someone broke in a window and stole a ladder, and we were worried that something worse could happen.. another fire for example, from someone trying to "keep warm" inside. Brandon told me all about my options, including making it easy by pointing out the best choices.  He is really knowledgeable about every aspect of ADT technology, and he answered questions I didn't even realize I should be asking.He made the process very easy for me. When we figured out what I wanted to do, he brought Jesse to the house and got us started putting the system together.  It's a big house and we needed a bunch of sensors, but Jesse is a pro and made it happen without hesitation.  His fingers flew across the controls of the alarm system as he programmed it, like he's done this a million times.And everything has been working perfectly since day 1.  It's amazing.I highly recommend Brandon and Jesse if you need an alarm, they will make it happen with no delay and no confusion.

"Provided great service during our first installation several years ago and they delivered a repeat performance this time around."

When we recently moved to another home in Oakland, Fish Araya at California Security Pro was the only call we made. Fish and his team provided great service during our first installation several years ago and they delivered a repeat performance this time around. He helped us get the right level of protection for our home -- and the best deal on our ADT cameras and system. Call Fish for a top-notch security experience!

"Don't hesitate,very professional and knowledgeable."

Moved into our new home in Oakland a few weeks ago, and the 1st thing on our list other than Internet was a home security system. I called California Security Pros and spoke to Brandon Tomas. He was very professional and knowledgeable, and decided to set up appointment for him to see house and make recommendations and provide a quote. Brandon spent a lot of time walking us through house and pointing out what he thought was important and what best placement for sensors and cameras. He came up with a very competitive bid and we decided to move forward. Hector was our installer and did a fabulous job. Hector has tremendous patience and didn't get finished until 10pm, but didn't leave until everything was working perfectly. We had a problem getting automatic door lock to engage that was no fault of installation, but the way the door was hanging. Brandon sent over a locksmith the following day to correct the problem, and even deducted the cost from my 1st bill. Don't hesitate call Brandon, and ask for Hector to do installation.

"5 stars."

I had a great experience with Brandon. He's a great guy, upfront, and very clearly cares about his job, and more importantly, the safety of his clients. He's patient, enthusiastic, and went out of his way to return to my home when Hector, the installer, was at my house. Hector was also very professional, patient, and kind. A lot of ADT locations seem to get poor reviews, but this one gets 5 stars. It's for good reason.

"First rate and professional start to finish,Brandon Tomas is awesome!"

Just purchased my new alarm system from California Security Pro and had one of the best costumer service experiences ever. Brandon Tomas is awesome! He is very knowledgeable, polite and enthusiastic about his job and the company he works for. I like the fact that he doesn't try to over sale what you need for your house. He called to remind me about my installation appointment, he showed up at the time of the appointment to see how the install was going and also followed up a few days later to see if there were any questions or concerns. Hector the installer was also great. He walked me thru the whole process and did a great job on the install. After completion he spent plenty of time going over the system and even left me his cell number. If you need a security system I highly recommend these two gentlemen. First rate and professional start to finish.

"Wonderful experience."

I had a wonderful experience with California Security Pro. Brandon (Area Rep) walked me through my options and made helpful recommendations about what I needed/didn't need. Kyle (Technician) set everything up and explained to me how to use my new system. Both men were extremely personable and prompt. Highly recommend.

These guys were great.  Came the day after I called and installed the system the next day!  They were all super friendly and helpful.  Spent plenty of time to make sure that I was clear about everything that I was getting and all my options.  No pressure.  Clear explanations.  Kyle was the name of the guy who came and explained the entire thing and got it installed for me pronto.  I sleep better at night knowing I have this extra layer of security.

I just got my ADT home alarm system and the installation process was surprisingly efficient! I got a quote on one day and installation the next all the while receiving amazing customer service!  Brandon Tomas (sales rep) and Kyle Brown (technician) were patient with my hundreds of questions, thorough with their explanation of the different packages and honest with their assessment of what I needed to protect my home. I picked California Security Pro because it had such high ratings on Yelp and it is honestly well deserved.Thank you for making it so easy :) appreciate it! (Now I wish all the other services out there could learn from you, they would get a lot more business and happy customers)

8/13/15describe the image "Within 24 hours, our new system is up and running."

We had a new ADT system installed in our home today. Brandon (sales rep) and Hector (installation) were very helpful and professional. We met with Brandon yesterday and within 24 hours, our new system is up and running.

7/5/15describe the image   "Worked very hard to make sure I was satisfied."

Brandon , our sales rep, and Kyle, technician and were both amazing. I don't give reviews often but these two worked very hard to make sure I was satisfied. The security system has been in place a month now and has been working very well. I would recommend these two to my friends and family any day.

 6/29/15describe the image   "Recommend California Security Pro to anyone looking for a new security system."

Brandon Tomas the salesman for California Security Pro got me a fantastic deal on a ADT wireless security system.  I had moved into a home that had never had a security system installed before.  Brandon was able to get the installation done for free which was something ADT had originally promised me if I would transfer my existing service.  However, when ADT found out there were no sensors on the windows they wanted an additional $40/window.  Brandon is the definition of good customer service and what a good salesman should be.  If I could give him more than 5 stars I would.  He also followed up the next day after installation to check on me and if I had any further questions.  Jesse Amatrone installed the new ADT wireless security system in my home and did a fantastic job!  He arrived promptly at the beginning of the appointment window and finished within an hour or so.  He took the time to carefully explain and introduce the new system to me.  I would highly recommend California Security Pro to anyone looking for a new security system.  Very Happy Customer!!!  Tonya N.,Oakland, CA
