I was searching for a company to give me sound advice on my existing burglar alarm system which seemed to " go off" regularly without reason. Mike the owner is a rare breed of person. He tells you exactly when he will arrive, up-dates you on his expected time of arrival and sends his quote exactly on time. He was able to fully diagnose the problems within the old system and recommended a new alternative which was inexpensive compared to others I had researched. The new system took only a morning to install, allows us to isolate areas in our house which will not set off the alarm during the night ( great for the dog in the kitchen!) and even sends us a telephone message if the alarm goes off when we are not there. I would recommend this young man and his products unreservedly to anyone searching for a better and more up-to-date alarm system.~ Ian Chubb, Innerwick.

I usually read reviews and think they are made up but no Mikes reviews are very accurate. From giving us an estimate to fit an alarm system, security lighting and cctv system, to finishing the job he was punctual, efficient and friendly and importantly very reasonably priced. I have not had any hesitation in recommending him to friends and family. Thanks Mike~ Fiona Hussey, Macmerry.

Arranged for Mike to come and advise us re CCTV system for our property. He arrived on time and was helpful and courteous. Estimate was delivered on time. This we agreed and also a date to commence the job. Again he turned up on time and completed the work that day. The work was completed to a high standard and he tidied up on completion. He was careful throughout the day and left the house with no remedial work required to walls etc. Careful and tidy were high on his agenda. A very pleasant young man who kept us informed throughout the day as to best locations for all the equipment. Very impressed with the quality of the system which now gives us peace of mind.~ Clark Brunton, Prestonpans.

Mike has recently completed an installation of a CCTV System for us at our site. For start to finish Mike did a fantastic job. From the information provided in the quote to the speed he installed the system on site was painless. There was no disruption on our busy site and the job was completed in the time frame allocated. I would not hesitate to recommend Mike. Apart from his good workmanship and knowledge , he is a very polite and friendly individual and nothing was a problem.~ Foxlake Adventures (James Barbour), Dunbar.

I had MDS install an HD CCTV System and an Intruder Alarm at my specialist coachworks yard. I was very pleased with Mike's professional approach and knowledge of the systems. I can view my cameras via a mobile phone app and if my alarm activates it calls up to 4 phone numbers. I highly recommend MDS to anyone looking to have security systems installed. Competitive price and great workmanship.~ Jamie Mullen (Mullen Coachworks), Port Seton.

We contacted MDS security systems about having our intercom / entry system repaired and when Mike arrived to look at the job decided to ask about having an intruder Alarm fitted too . Mike gave us a quote for both jobs we agreed then a date given for the work to be carried out. All work done quickly and efficiently with no hassle to ourselves or neighbours and quote given was accurate (no hidden extras ) The intercom was not an easy job in my opinion as had not been working for about 15 years !! Mike worked his magic with patience and skill ..... its working again. We would not hesitate to recommend MDS systems it has given us peace of mind for security in our home . Thanks again Mike~ Jackie Taylor, Prestonpans.

I can without reservation recommend MDS to you as a thoroughly professional and efficient firm. They installed a comprehensive CCTV system to my garage property, and did so on-time and according to the fixed price as agreed. The standard of workmanship was very high, as was their technical knowledge about security equipment and systems. The owner of the business is most understanding of client requirements and can listen and respond to non-specialist queries. I would use MDS again for my security system needs, and have recommended them to business associates.~ Nicholas Terry, (PK Supercars) Elphinstone.

Really happy with Mike's service. Came when he said he would, gave us a fair price, and was able to undertake the work within a few days, which is exactly what we were looking for.

We contacted MDS with a view to replacing our 20 year old alarm system. Mike surveyed our property and provided estimates for 2 alternative systems. We opted for a system that dials 4 contacts in the event of the system being triggered. Mike arrived promptly on the arranged date and completed the installation in a thoroughly professional manner. Before leaving he cleaned up and patiently took us through the operation of the system. Since the completion of the installation Mike has been very helpful in guiding us through a couple of further "tweaks" to the system to customise it's performance to our further requirements.

I spent years with a national home security provider, a name you'd know but one that is more interested in profit than protection.
