Auborn F.
Rob was very knowledgeable about the ring security cameras he installed for me. He made sure to clean up after installation and kept me informed about any hiccups that came up. I highly recommend Rob for the installation of ring floodlight cameras.

I will add also Value. OVERALL, Job was Outstanding! -First, he came the same day (what I did not expect compared to another peer). -Second he installed my camera, then I changed my mind to add the second camera of different brand; he installed it as fast as the first. _Third, he corrected the mistake that the previous "Security Camera's Man Contractor" made (by installing my camera upside down). It was awesome

ICU Agents were excellent with installing my security system. The price was reasonable, the communications were good, and they technicians took their time to setup the security cameras and equipment and walked me through how to monitor the systems. Highly recommended.

Exactly what I was looking for. Installed 2 Nest outdoor security cameras, did great work. They respected my house & I could tell they were being careful & thorough. Highly recommend.

Rob was incredibly helpful & honest about what would be needed to get my security camera back working. What I originally thought was a simple 1 hour camera install was instead a whole rebuild of the network, Rob stayed until the project was completed, constantly explained what he was doing & was incredibly helpful getting us back to peak performance. I would not hesitate to call Rob & his crew back for any of my security needs.

Surya did a wonderful job installing both a security camera on a tricky spot of my condo (exterior) and installed an electronic keypad on my front door. He actually came out previously to do the work, but provided great guidance to purchase a different camera that would work better for my objective - very thankful that he was gracious enough to consult and then come back another day after I received the correct equipment. He worked very quickly and triple-checked his work which was really comforting. Would definitely hire again.

My experience with ICU Agents has been outstanding. We had them mount our TV and then come back to install and set up a security camera system. Interactions are all timely and courteous, costs are very reasonable, and their quality standards are high. When there were some unexpected challenges installing the camera system I purchased, they had incredible patience. They worked for close to 9 hours without even a hint of frustration and did not want to leave until the system was operational and I was comfortable with it. They have definitely earned my trust, especially in a market where quotes I got ranged as high as 3x the ICU cost (with a less efficient plan that would have required us to patch drywall holes). I will definitely go to ICU Agents with any future needs.
