Geo Arm Reviews

Customers like that you can sign up for Geo Arm services without a credit check or proof of social security number. They also like the low costs which can start as low as $8 a month. The biggest complaints are a sparsely staffed phone support, where it can be difficult to reach a live person after hours East Coast time. This is for the support portion of the business not the alarm monitoring.

While the tech support is offered free, it is often necessary to schedule a phone appointment in order to get adequate assistance over the phone for questions or problems that arise. The prices forequipment on the website may be higher than other sites, but they do offer a price match guarantee, enabling customers to purchase the product at the lowest possible price.
