The alarm people are back: alarming!

Just received a comment from an old post (it's the last in a series of comments) about door-to-door sales of alarms. I'm posting it since they are back again, claiming to work for GE, which makes products for many alarm companies. When you ask them for a brochure, or business card, they won't have one: you have to wonder how they stay in business.

Please see:

Buz wonders if they are licensed to do alarms in Maryland. I wonder if anyone has ever tested one of their alarms, or been broken into. How do you like the "service". Hate to say it, but that residential industry has sort of evolved into a racket (this is not my original thought). Nobody wants to upgrade your alarm; they only want to sell you a new system
