Customer Reviews

“I was very pleased with the prompt response from Astra Alarms the estimator arrived at the specified time.
I was advised by him the best alarm system for my property and there was no pushy salesman talk. I was given a price immediately and was offered a date which was within a week of the estimator visiting my property.
On the date I was given the installer turned up punctually and kept me informed of what he was doing during his visit. The installer also explained to me how the system worked and wrote down the instructions as well as providing me with the manual. All the rubbish was removed from my property and he cleared up after himself. I was extremely pleased with the prompt service and the politeness of the staff who visited my home. I have recommended Astra alarms to two of my friends due to the good service that I received and will continue to recommend them to friends and family.
Suggestions = All I can say is keep up the good work and service that you provide.”

“Very friendly, no pressure to buy a system when they are showing you the products, the alarm engineers are also very friendly and happy to help with any questions you have. The installation was completed in one day and the majority of cables were hidden. I would be happy to recommend Astra.”

“Highly recommended … found these guys on spec (they were installing an alarm next door). The lads went out of their way to give us a quote on the spot; installation was rapid and when we had a slight query (down to our error) - it was fixed pronto. Would recommend to anyone.”

“We were very impressed with the service and would certainly recommend them to anyone needing an alarm. James, the engineer, came to give us a quote for a new alarm and what he thought would be best for ourselves. When he came to do the alarm we can honestly say we didn’t have any mess whatsoever. After the job was done James told us the ins and outs of the alarm and everything we needed to know. He assured us if we had any problems he would be happy to come back and sort them out. We are very pleased we decided on this company and hope all their employees are as thorough, polite and helpful as James was. Thank you Astra Alarms and we intend to take out your alarm insurance after the 2 year guarantee has expired.”

“Had a new system installed in March and have been very happy with it. Easy to use and we've had no false alarms. Firm gave us excellent advice and didn't try to sell us fancy extras. We have 3 passive IR sensors, 4 shock sensors and a panic button. The cost was £564, considerably less than another quote we had.”

“Astra Alarms installed a 3 camera CCTV system with recording.                                                                                

They fitted a great system with cameras that can see in the dark. Not the cheapest quote we got, we had heard from friends that that had bought a cheap system and weren’t impressed. Our friends have seen our system and there gonna get astra to improve theirs. We can view our cameras remotely on our iphones.”

“Fantastic service, product and professionalism by your installers. People often these day's only respond to poor service and don't congratulate on jobs well done, so thank you Fred for a great customer experience from start to finish.

I will have no hesitation in recommending your company whenever the opportunity arises.”

“Dear Sir

We recently had our alarm system upgraded to a RedCare monitored system along with some motion detection lights and video cameras. The alarm system change was required by my insurance company and had to be done quickly.

Astra Alarms arranged to come round the same day I rung to quote for the business. There prices were reasonable and they installed the full system within the week. The work men were tidy and efficient and completed the work on time. There was a small problem with the existing alarm which they fixed straight away.

Alarming your house is a sensitive and motive subject. I rung 4 alarm companies in the area and Astra were the only one to make my feel that they knew what they were talking about and I am happy to recommend them to anyone.”

“Professional, courteous and totally understood what I wanted to replace my existing "wired" alarm system with a wireless system. Fred was excellent on his initial visit to my house, the fitters were punctual, very pleasant and a couple of hours later you would not have known workmen had been in my property.
Excellent company, I would recommend them highly to anybody seeking a burglar alarm.
Suggestions = Nothing....carry on as you are.”

“I recently had an alarm system installed by Astra and was very impressed with the installation engineers. They took away all previous alarm equipment and were very tidy and left my property in a clean condition unlike a more well known company who recently fitted a system in my sons property leaving the old redundant system in place alongside the new equipment.”

“Just had to write and say what a fantastic job Astra have done for us. The price was very competitive and the products are excellent. Fred visited our property on the Monday I have to say he was the only salesman to demonstrate the kit working. We made the decision to go with Astra a few days later and by the Friday 3 of his team were here installing it. It's fair to say that they have the same OCD I have about wires being visible. I am really really happy with the installation. They even took the time to demonstrate how everything worked. All in all we are really please with the products and the installation.”

“We recently had an alarm system fitted by Astra Alarm Systems and are very pleased with the service they provided. We were given a free quote when various options were thoroughly discussed. There was no pressure or follow up calls, we just contacted Astra when we'd made our decision.
Installation was quick and mess-free and the engineer talked me through the instructions for use nice and clearly.
The system suits our family's needs and we all have a different code so that entrance and exits can be monitored.”

Our alarm is now up and running and we are really pleased with it. We would like you to know how efficient and tidy your engineers were whilst installing the alarm. We certainly would have no hesitation in recommending Astra to anyone who asks if we know a good company.

Thought I'd just drop you a quick note to thank you for arranging the alarm install which went really well from our perspective. The professionalism from the initial contact through to the installation by two very skilled installers has left you with two satisfied customers.
