EMC Reviews

EMC has an A+ rating with the BBB. Customers tend to be very happy with the professionalism of the employees during the audit process. They feel the company is making good recommendations and seeking to protect their property. The customer service call center, the central monitoring system and response times when alarms are triggered also receive high ratings. The free consultation is done in a professional manner with no high pressure sales techniques that tend to turn off customers.

The biggest complaint comes upon cancellation. With the EMC monitoring there is no long term contract. The company therefore gives customers the option of purchasing or renting the communications box needed to connect with the central monitoring system. If the customer choosesto rent the box for a $7 a month additional fee, the box must be returned to the company upon cancellation. When a customer cancels the service without returning the box, the customer will be charged for the cost of the communications box. If the customer purchases the box there is no additional monthly fee and no concern over returning the box in the event of a cancellation. If the box is promptly returned upon cancellation, no additional fees are incurred.

EMC Equipment

EMC’s primary focus is on providing a top of the line monitoring system rather than the systems themselves. Customers must purchase the security system of their choice, which EMC will provide the monitoring services for. In addition to security systems, EMC can provide the equipment for remote access and management of security systems, they provide entertainment systems, home audio systems, multi room audio systems, and home theatre installation.
