I just moved into a new house in Pasadena and had a security system installed by San Marino Security. My sister has used them for years and has always been pleased with their service and professionalism so I decided to use them as well. Jim did a walk thru with me and gave me various options that would fit with my budget. The installation went smoothly. I own an old bungalow and was nervous about installing contacts on all my windows, but the work was so impeccable and the contacts were barely visible. Overall, I've been very pleased.

Good Luck

I am a true believer in ratings for anything and I have to tell you my story with Phil,,,,,the owner of this company. My mother had installed 2 separate alarm systems with Phil due to his great reputation from my mothers friends. I called the company for some cameras and PHIL came out. He advised me that he would have something to me via email in 2 days.....2 days later nothin..I called the company to leave a message with PHIL,,,,and....nothin. I called again a week later and PHIL answered the phone. PHIL said that he would e-mail me in 2 days. Two days later...nothin...2 months later, still nothin....Shame on this company and shame on PHIL.....Seriously,,,,,good luck to anyone using Phil and his smoke and mirrors company.

Great Service

I am a contractor who has worked with this company on several projects over the years and have found these guys to be great to work with. They have a great attention to detail and my clients are always surprised at how reasonable they are. They stay up on the latest technology and go the extra mile to make sure their system fits the client's needs

First Rate In All Areas

San Marino Security has been extremely professional. From my initial introduction via their receptionist through the final installation, every question has been answered, the system fully explained and I was encouraged to call them at any time. They have a very satisfied customer here and they have not only been concerned with the safety of my home but also my personal safety.

Phil just ignored my Business, Wassup with that?

The owner himself showed up on time to check out my 2 small warehouses in Arcadia. Afterwards he said he'd work me out a deal for installing security on both units. Weeks later I had heard nothing.

I tried calling the office and coulod only talk to a reeptionist but I left a message for Phil inquiring about my estimate. Weeks have passed and still not a peep from anyone at San Marino Security.

Hey Phil..why did you just blow me off?

Personal Service and Good Prices

We just had a new security system installed by San Marino Security and it was a great experience. We spoke to Phil at San Marino Security because we see his signs all over our new neighborhood and because they do the security system at The Huntington Library. Phil came by and did a walk-through of our house, identifying risks. His on-the-spot proposal was 40% cheaper than his nearest competitor, also a local company. He can't be compared to the big guys like ADT (we were replacing an ADT system) because there's no contract and you own the system, which is a standard GE unit, not some proprietary box. The installation team was on-time and professional, taking care to keep the house clean and was friendly to our dog and small child. After the install, Phil came back personally and gave us a tutorial. We also are saving by paying for 12 months upfront on the monitoring, which includes 1 month free (even with no contract).

It's been a great experience overall and we're enjoying using the new system. We recommend San Marino Security for your security system needs.

Great Security Company

I was recommended to San Marino Security by a friend who is a police officer and boy am I glad I was. I was previously with SDS in San Gabriel and they were the worst. I needed someone new with a higher quality product and better customer service.

Phil (the owner) came to my house and LISTENED to what I needed and provided a choice of solutions that were effective and affordable.

Thanks for a great job, it has been two months now a both of the two minor issues were handled quickly and effectively. I am very happy

Very reliable and responsive

I've used them a couple times before for my security system at home and at my business and they have proven to install high quality products. They are also very knowledgeable about their systems and very professional. The owner is a retired police office and knows quite a bit about security and home protection.
