    "After many issues with our alarm system since moving to new premises - several different companies looking at and advising us expensive ways to resolve the problems we had, two companies even coming on site and 'fixing' our issues and actually making things worse - we then found Act Alarms...
    word of mouth and amazing reviews everywhere we looked led us to Act Alarms, giving us hope - and it was JUSTIFIED!
    Dale is the most honest, reliable and knowledgable alarm installer we have come across in both our personal home alarms over the years and also in our business dealings. He had ideas and knowledge that saved us money and used our original alarm to it's full capabilities.

    Dale was tidy, punctual and his workmanship and knowledge can't be faulted... we can't rave enough about this company, the ethics and integrity that comes with it and it's name.

    Thanks Dale, you've put our trust back into tradesmen/women, we wish you all the best and recommend anyone needing advice or maintenance on alarms and systems call Act Alarms... there is no comparison!

    "Have had Dale, over 3 -4 times to our place, he has always been prompt, fair priced and the main part is he is very knowledgeable and will suggest exactly what is needed to be done. He is the only person I trust with alarms. This most recent visit of his we had to get an entire new alarm as a power surge killed the existing one. He charged great and the new system works in conjunction with our existing sensors and sirens works so much better than the old piece of junk, should have got him to do it last time. Can only say good things about him and is the only Alarm Specialist I am using."

    "Dale upgraded our alarm system for us. I would highly recommend Dale for his great work, friendly attitude, and very competitive quote. He worked longer time to install than expected due to some unexpected wiring issue but he was still quite patient to answer all my questions. He even cleaned up the dust and left all clean and tidy."

    "I can highly recommend Dale. Called him this morning and he came out early this evening and fixed our alarm. Nothing was too much, he had great knowledge of our type of alarm and was value for money. He even got our garage door working which we thought was out of order. Haha! Thanks heaps Dale and we will definitely use you again and recommend you to other people we know."

    "I recommend Dale very, very highly. If I could give him 110%, I would! Our older alarm was malfunctioning, with an obscure fault. He systematically and professionally tracked it down. Also replaced the faulty outside alarm - very neat job. A real gentleman and a pleasure to deal with. Would I use him again - definitely - and so should you!"

    "Would not hesitate to recommend Dale to others.

    Whilst he did end up running later than booked for our job, he kept in contact to let us know and was apologetic.

    Once on site, he not only did a very tidy and professional job with our new alarm sensors, but he went above and beyond the call of duty to help me out with another unrelated small job for which I am very grateful.

    When presented with the bill, it was exactly as he had quoted, even though it took longer than initially anticipated and he wouldn't accept any additional labour charges when offered.

    Professional, knowledgeable and friendly - will definitely be using Dale for any future alarm work.

    "The worst time for an alarm to go off for no reason and need looking at? Just before Xmas and the holidays!

    After getting someone to look at it a few working days before Xmas and being told they couldn't do anything until the New Year because the installation company (who had gone broke and no longer existed) had locked my alarm with an unknown code...I was resigned to having no alarm while away.

    Feeling increasingly worried before going away, I decided to call a few companies to see what could be done in the 2 working days before Xmas...the first I called was Act Alarms. Dale answered (on a Sunday afternoon, not a work day), understood the problems my alarm had AND had solutions for fixing it. Not only that, he could come and sort it out the next day...just 2 days before Xmas.

    He came to look at my alarm as promised, fixed everything as promised, AND improved it as the initial installation lacked a little finesse in how it was put in. Not only that, Dale gave me faith that the alarm I have IS one of the very best (something I was beginning to doubt).

    With his quick help in a time of need, his speedy work, easy explanations, and genuineness, I am very happy to recommend Dale to anyone on the look out for quality alarm installations and maintenance.

    "Dale upgraded our old alarm system, he stuck to his quotation even though we decided on a new location for one of the keypads which took extra time to install. Very knowledgeable and did a great job. Didn't turn up on time but he had been attending an emergency callout, prehaps a phone call to let me know would have been good, otherwise great job. Thanks"

    "Organised a Job for Dale to come out and look at our alarm system. We were further out of Auckland then the usual customer but Dale said no problems at all. The alarm was a slightly older model and many things had started to fail. What a true professional he had all the equipment and was so knowledgeable about alarms, he was also very mindful of our home, did not make any mess at all even put down drop sheets when entering the roof so there was zero mess. There were so many problems with our alarm including wiring faults, problems with the main board, replacement batteries, faulty sirens and sensors not working, Dale took the time to diagnose step by step exactly where the problems where and fixed every single one. Everything that didn't need to be replaced he fixed, keeping the cost down and now our alarm is even better then new. We were so happy with the price best value for money, Act Alarms is now the only company we use highly recommend."

    "Great service at a great price. Dale squeezed our job in right before Christmas as we we going away and wanted the alarm reprogrammed and a pet friendly sensor put in one of the rooms.
    The job was done quickly and Dale was very pleasant to deal with - he didnt mind me testing the effectiveness of the pet friendly sensor with one of my cats!
    He even offers a very reasonably priced monitoring service which we are also considering.
