VIRGINIA BEACH, VIRGINIA -- We bought a new build home and the builder told us about access, so we set up a system with them. Little did we know that the company was very small and very hard to get anything taken care of. My biggest reason for bad review is that my husband is in the military and is being deployed oversea and Access was unwilling to work with us to get out of the contract. My husband has been in the military for 10 years and we have never had a problem with canceling contracts due to a move or deployment. We gave a 30-day notice and told them they could have the system back. All we wanted was to cancel our service and they were unwilling to help in any way.
VIRGINIA BEACH, VIRGINIA -- We bought a new home on which Access Innovations served as a subcontractor for structured wiring. They wired and installed our home theater system and our security system. Simply put, Access Innovations is a joke. After six months, the home theater system has not consistently worked, despite more than ten visits from a technician, and finally the owner of the company. The owner of the company returned five times to reinstall the same part, which never functioned correctly. Finally, at my urging, he found an alternative part that may actually be working.
The home security system is malfunctioning on several doors, sending false alarms, and is unable at this point to be fully armed. A tech came out last week and apparently "fixed" the wrong door. Hopefully the developer is paying attention and will cut these clowns loose. Stay far away if you don't have to use these folks...
Of course there are 2 sides to every story. This client forgot to mention that it was their OWN TV that they purchased themselves that was burning out our component, yet we continued to fix it for free under OUR warranty and even gave a free upgrade. Most consumers would view this as going above and beyond. Unfortunately with some people the more you give them the more they expect.
Hi, please understand that your entire system was installed for free. The very low monthly payment is how the labor and equipment costs are recouped. You called to cancel in June but per the terms of the contract that you signed, the contract runs through September. This was agreed upon and signed by you. This is no different than a cell phone or cable TV contract. (You get a free or low cost phone in exchange for an airtime contract).
