Ripoff Report Verified REVIEW:

EDitors UPDATE: Positive rating and recognition has been given to APX Alarm for its commitment to excellence in customer service.

Ripoff Reports discussions with the company have uncovered an ongoing commitment to total customer satisfaction. You can expect to have any questions or concerns that you have with them to be answered and resolved in a timely manner. They have shown us their customer service process, and it reflects a desire to serve customers, as well as fix problems.

The company's management specifically told us about how their job is to simplify lives and help people to live intelligently. The management really wants every person who buys a system to feel valued. The concern for each customer's experience starts at the top, and is reflected in the action of every employee they hire.

The company also works to monitor their sales and customer support calls to see how they can be improved. They use these calls as examples for employees in training. Currently, Vivint is working to make changes to their contracts to make things easier for their customers as they have found that many of their complaints stem from feeling misled or customers paid fees they did not feel they authorized.

APX Alarm Going to Cancel APX Alarm, Hopefully Just in Time... Provo Utah


I have had a similar experience with APX Alarm, just like the many posts before me. We were actually considering an alarm system when we moved here and thought that this may be a good way to go (seemed reasonable). The saleperson was nice but would react to some questions strangley. My girlfriend, the other homeowner, asked if we could get out of the contract and he would react like "Why would you want to do that? What could go wrong?". The other kids showed up and installed the system and even asked me where they could camp for the night (?). It was a little weird. After having a night of discussion and thought, we are now starting the process of cancelling, not only because we are now unsure of the companies practices but also that maybe we really don't want an alarm, but were only entertaining the idea, until approached by the APX salesperson.

I have talked with a rep and was told just to fax the bottom of the form and I will recieve a call soon enough. We will see. I think I may take a multi-facted approach and fax, send and email cancellation requests. I'm sure that we be out the activation fee ($99), at least, but it sounds like it may continue to be a headache. The thing is, the reps seem nice (compared to other reports I've seen) but I just don't feel right about them. Anyone with any advice would be great.

update

AUTHOR: Ryny - (U.S.A.)

Well, I did fax the cancellation twice (after talking to 2 different reps who told me I could) and emailed and sent a UPS copy of the letter of cancellation by overnight mail, with signature required (for good measure). I then called them and they verified that they got the cancellation. They then asked why and tried to waive my fee, give me free months and equipment. It kind of made me sad knowing that I could have haggled for more stuff... Oh well. We said no, we want to cancel and they scheduled a guy to come out in two weeks to get their stuff back. No money has been taken out of my account yet. Not to seem naive, but they have been pretty nice so far, but, like I said. We shall see...

Also, I looked into the Minnesota law and it says that we are entitled to not have to pay anything (which might be federal, too). So, I guess they can't take the $99 non-refundable activation fee, right (they were willing to waive it anyway)?
