Please take a look at what some of our happy customers have said about Howarth Security Installations:
In recent months there seem to have been an increase in opportunistic thefts, people rushing into a shop or office and snatching items of value such as a phone from a desk.
With that in mind we took the decision to install a door access system to our office. Historically there were two things that put us off doing that: cost and the though of wires trailing through the office to each of our three floors.
We need not have worried about either of these. You and Dave designed and installed a system that met our needs and took the time and care to make any cabling as unobtrusive as possible. Indeed unless you know where to look you would not know that the cabling exists.
Disruption during installation was kept to a minimum and Dave even helped out manning reception - a formal job offer is on its way.
The system works very well, visitors have adapted to it easily and our staff are no longer having to run up and downstair quite so much.
As to the cost, well that was very reasonable indeed and certainly cheaper than we had expected.
Overall we are very happy and would like to that you and Dave for the work and attention to detail.
Thank you for coming to service my alarm recently which you do each year for me and are always so accommodating.
This year, you didn't moan as you were made to wait as the room was being used by my colleague. Instead you asked for a brew and we sat and chatted. This time I really did appreciate your servicing as you informed me that, after having recently having my telephone system changed, the alarm was no longer connected to the phone and so if it had gone off I would have been none the wiser. It took longer than you expected, at no extra cost to me, but you reconnected me up and all is now working again.
As always, I will continue to recommend you and indeed will be asking you to do my house system when the alterations are completed later this year.
Recently, I introduced you to a client where I project managed their luxury home in Wilmslow. The need was to renew the entire house alarm system with vibration detection to the doors and you needed to ensure the works was programmed in amongst the other trades on site.
I must say once again, you delivered a superb service. Why? Because your communication was exceptional and you visited site more times than expected to check for any problems with the fishing of cables.
The works was completed on time as usual, and my client has been singing your praises since. The system you installed is of the highest quality and I really appreciate the additional equipment you included within the price too.
I know I can always rely on a superb service from you Steve and I shall continue to recommend HSi to my clients and contacts on all forthcoming projects.
This is another testament to the great alarm system you installed for us late last year regarding our experience with the system.
A couple of months ago we had a problem with our electrics occur over a weekend which we would not have realised until the following Monday, and if we had to deal with it on the Monday it could have meant a day's loss of trading. But with the system you installed with it being dual powered and monitored, we were promptly notified of a problem on the Saturday morning from he monitoring station meaning we had chance to rectify the electrical fault and not cause us to lose a day's trading. So there are additional benefits to have this type of system!
As well as when we had our building inspection from our insurance company because of our recent move, and when it came to the alarm side of things the first thing in his words where 'is that just another system that makes a loud noise?' To which we laughed off and produced all the technical jargon and NSI certificates which me and Alan still don't fully understand, but it impressed the insurance man with him saying; 'This system is better than the one your premiums are based on'. That means Steve[s systems was better than ADT and could also mean a reduction on our instance and for that we can't thank the small firm from Bolton enough. So to Steve and his team one again thank you!
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all the hard work from you and your team in the installation of the HD CCTV system at our office.
You understood perfectly what I wanted and delivered that in the most effective way possible.
The installation team of Dave and Dan took the time to ensure that the plan remained unchanged before beginning the installation. Wherever cables and wires were concealed and the whole installation was delivered to a very high standard in a very considerate fashion.
The picture quality from the cameras is excellent, facial details can be picked out and the whole image is very clear.
I am very happy with the finished result all of which was delivered for a very reasonable price.
Recently, I introduced you to a client where I designed a contemporary rear extension to their home in Hale Barns. The need was to extend the existing, poor quality alarm system to protect the new extension.
You liaised with my client who lives approx. 2500 miles away and arranged to programme the works in on site without any problems. You kept me informed each time you have discussed any details with the client & the appointed contractor and I had full confidence the works will, as always be to the highest standard.
The installation went smoothly, no mess, no fuss, simply a professional service from a quality alarm engineer and a very happy client.
I really could not recommend HSI highly enough Steve and I look forward to working with you on numerous projects in months and years to come.
I just wanted to say thanks for the job you recently did for me at my office. your service was excellent from start to finish. It began with you coming and advising me what you felt I needed and I loved the fact that you can call my mobile if the alarm is triggered.
Yourself and Adam turned up on time, didn’t disrupt me in my work and the end result is that I now have a super system that works and I can’t even forget the code anymore as I have a key fob!
Thanks for a great job and I am always looking out for you as you are one of the best alarm engineers I have encountered.
The alarm system you have recently installed for Mar;borough Motors' new property second to none and rivals the 'big boys' if not exceeds their craftsman ships.
Even when you come down to quote the job everything was explained great detail right down to the differences between the different grades of alarm systems. Upon execution of the job you and your lads all arrived on time, the work was quick and tidy you even went to the length of tapping a bag to the wall to catch any dust from the drilling and this is all being done in an active workshop with no disruptions to our day. Even when our phone rang you dropped all tools so we could deal with our customers.
Overall I would not hesitate in recommending Steve and his team at HSi to friends and family as I know they will be able to knockout any competition from the so called favourites.
I'd like to recommend Steve, and his business HSi to all potential clients who require that attention to detail, and sound advice not based on budget.
Our studio needed modifications to an existing alarm, whilst we carry out developments, Steve came up with a solution within seconds for a short term solution, and gave us a specification for later in the project, and all satifying our insurers.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank Steve and his staff at HSi. Right from our 1st consultation all the way through to the alarm system being fitted Steve was very professional and did exactly what it says on the tin.
He was on time, big yes yes in my book, he stuck to his prices on his quotation and he fitted the alarm while I was at work, so at no inconvenience to myself at all.
I am over the moon with the work Steve carried out and would have no hesitation to recommend him to friends, family, colleagues and business contacts alike
Steve recently installed my alarm just one week after my house was painted. I was a bit concerned about having the alarm done after the painting but I needn’t have worried. Steve did a great job and caught all the brick dust when he was drilling both inside and out so there was no mess. He put a dust sheet over the top of his ladder to prevent it from marking my walls so there was no sign that he has been there – apart from the flash new alarm of course!
His job inside was equally as neat. Hiding cables behind walls so there was no redecorating required.
Since having the alarm I have felt so much safer at night when my daughter and I are alone in the house. I can leave my house during the day or for a holiday with the peace of mind that my alarm would alert my neighbours of any intruders. I think now it’s unlikely an intruder would actually attempt to break into our house with a modern alarm box on the front and back of the house!
As well as the obvious security and reassurance of having an alarm I have also been really pleased with the way it works. The fobs are fantastic and easy to use. Steve also installed a remote control so I can turn the alarm off from the comfort of my bed when I hear my daughter sneaking down the stairs in the morning!
The icing on the cake was yesterday when my insurer gave me a £50 discount off our home insurance for having a maintained alarm.
Howarth Security Installations are experts at what they do which is reinforced by their NSI accreditation. I’d recommend Steve to all my friends, family and business associates.
I am extremely pleased with the new alarm systems installed at our Bolton & Leigh branches and which comply fully with our insurance company’s requirements.
The installations was carried out with minimal disruption to our branches and the alarm specification, performance and particularly ease of operation are far superior to our previous ones.
I would have no hesitation in recommending your services to others.
I have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Howarth Security Installations. They have acted in a thoroughly professional way in every aspect of their dealings with us. From their first visit to our premises prior to preparing the system design to meet insurance requirements, continuing through the efficient and thoroughly crafts-manlike installation and on to ongoing service we have no complaints whatsoever. Everything is labeled up and fully documented. HSI took the trouble to explain everything and.did not leave site until they knew we were confident in operating the system. Whenever we have needed to call them we always get a speedy and personal response and whatever question we have asked has been fully answered. HSI are one of the very few companies these days that go the other mile.
I would like to recommend HSI Security Installations.
After several quotes we decided to go with Steve ,although not the cheapest he was very professional in his approach and seemed to care about what he was doing,always arrived when he said he would and did a very neat professional job with attention to detail. I always feel it is good to support local business and am glad that it was the right decision.
Steve Howarth of HSi carried out remedial work on our domestic alarm system on 16th March 2011. From the time I first contacted him via his web site to the completion of the work – the service, quality and speed of response was outstanding. Five stars hardly does it justice. Just let us say that Steve achieved my rarely awarded seal of complete approval. Steve you’re the star – Thank you very much.
I came home to find my house alarm system sounding and i was unable to key in the code as there was a fault with the back up battery and i couldn’t stop the alarm sounding!!!! I quickly found HSI on the internet and I called the fault mobile number and left a message.
A man called steve called me back, i told him what had happened and he was at my house within 20 mins!! He sorted the problem, explained the system to me and charged me a very resonable price, he even cleaned up after himself…………….well impressed with the service and would definately reccommend this company………….many thanks for your help.
Dave arrived on time did a very professional job and was courteous and liked his cups of tea.
I asked Steve to come and provide a quote to fit a new Alarm System, he turned up exactly when he said he would, measured up and provided me with a very competitive cost , there and then. The Job was booked in to his diary for the following Tuesday.
Steve arrived on time with two engineers, double checked the specification with me and the guys got about the job. This allowed me to get on with my busy day.
They had just finished testing the alarm out when I arrived home, followed by a demonstration and a full explanation of how the system works.
Now, here is the good bit, there wasn’t a single mark on a wall, there wasn’t a piece of cut off wire or any brick dust on the floor, they had even washed the teacups they had used.
Steve and his team are without doubt the best contractors we have ever had working at our home, and the alarm kit they fit is top quality idiot proof gear.
Many thanks for providing an excellent service on the recent installation of our home security.
The Job was carried out without very little inconvenience to ourselves. A very simple to use but highly efficient system with very discreet wiring. All mess that was caused during the installation was cleared away at the end of the job by courteous staff.
The price was very reasonable and I would highly recommend your company to anyone.
Thank you again Steve for a job well done.
I would like to Thank you for the seamless work that you have recently carried out of installing a new security alarm in my house. You arrived early and set to work with the minimum amount of bother or mess.
The alarm itself is “State of the art” and the latest up to the minute systems, having said that it is very simple for me to use, I particularly like the fact that the special dog alarms will allow the dog movement in his room and to remain in the house with out setting it off. I also find the key cards a very easy and effective way to de-activate the alarm instantly with out having to remember and punch in a number code.
Now I have peace of mind and feel a lot more secure with this brand new alarm system and needless to say I am delighted with your service Steve and I have no hesitation in recommending you to some one else.
