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 Is A SCAM!! 936 bbb reports in 36 months Provo Utah

These people scammed me and took full advantage they are nice for the first 3 days because you still have time to out the contract but after the 3 days they do not care about anything you have to say or any problems there rep mis lead me and said my windows were protected showed me how to by pass them and everything. come to find out not even 1 of my windows were protected the only reason I ever considered this was because i have a 6 month old and a 2 year old and they are starting to sleep in there own rooms and I wanted to feel safe at night while my children were asleep some one could not come in the windows I specifically told Brad Royal (APX rep) this was my biggest concern he also told me there was no activation fee it was for my remote so i agreed come to find out nope it was an activation fee when I called the people they offered to give me a free month mind you this was in my 3 days when they cared. Then he also told me if I chose to stay with the company they would not up my fees for 60 months but he said if i chose NOT i had to. its been 3 weeks now and the worse 3 weeks of my life I HATE THEM!! And all they will say is you signed the papers owell. so in all reality only my doors into the house have any security and when do burglars break in through your front door they are rude, un organized and already had 936 complaints to the BBB in the last 36 months. WOW! and when I informed the supervisor of this all he could say was you signed the contract if brad lied to you or not. and they have over 400,000 consumers. OK what about Brinks and ADT have way more consumers and the most out of 10 companies I looked at only had 4 if not any complaints. DO NOT FALL IN TO THERE TRICKS. They re word everything so it sounds good but its CRAP!!

BBB up to 948 complaints thats 12 complaints in a week.

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

I have now read EVERY report on here about APX and as I read them it was more and more I felt scammed because they played me the same way. They are all the same but different story. I dont know how this could possibly be legal!! Im to the point now where I am willing to go to collections just so Im not one contributing to there scams. If there is anything I can do or be a part of to stop APX I will!! Please if you know of anything email me at (((ROR redacted)))

#2 Consumer Comment

It's not too late to do something!

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

I would continue to file complaints. Start with the BBB of Utah (although I haven't gotten bupkus for help there), then move on to the Utah Attorneys General (AG) office who will forward it to the Utah Consumer Protection Dept., then to your local TV station that has a Fraud Buster segment (or something like that).

Write anywhere and everywhere you can find on the internet to tell your story about APX. The only way to put these people out of business is to make it so that when anybody Google's APX Alarm the first 100 hits will be complaints and people will run the other way.

If you still have your contract it should state how many 'points' are covered. This is windows, doors, smoke detectors, glass break sensors, etc. THAT is how you're going to get out of the contract. Hopefully your slimey sales rep (they all are from APX! IMO), wrote down what you WANTED covered and didn't sneak in what he knew WOULD be covered.
The Consumer Protection office will help you get out of the contract. And if they attack your credit by sending you to collections, they can help you with that too. (From what I was told yesterday by an agent in the UCP Dept).

I've gotten more help from the Utah Consumer Protection Dept. this week than I have from my own lazy a$$ed state of Wisconsin gubment employees.

Lets put APX out of business! Write. Write. Write. If you're creative, post a YouTube video about APX. THEY have videos that portray them as a wholesum, professional company concerned with nothing more than OUR well being. NOTHING MORE THAN PR CRAP!

I wish you luck. Don't roll over on this. You'll only empower them.
