I wasn't even looking for an upgrade, came across Dave going door to door, at 8pm its when I came home from work. He explained what the offer was. I accepted. Techs were there within the hour. and by 1200, they were done. Had cameras on backyard, front door and garage entrance done. I freakin love them already......................
