In The Words Of Our Clients

  • “Three years ago, when I started looking for a security systems integrator, I ran into these professionals at ISC West in Las Vegas. I was impressed with their ability to be the comprehensive solution for our complex security requirements. Their leadership met with us and we knew we were entering into a collaborative relationship that made the design and plan meet our needs and budget. Their sales, engineering, and installation teams are dedicated to delivering value and performance. Pref-Tech’s contacts and suppliers within the security industry make them agile and current among emerging technologies. Working with Pref-Tech has been the best decision I made in this multi-million-dollar project.”
