  • ~ Nirmesh Varsani (CEO, Kailash Joiners Limited)

    "We needed a CCTV system installed in our business premises. Zimcos AVS not only produced the lowest quotation but also specified higher end products than the other two competitors we had quote for the job. Installation was carried out quickly and professionally, time was taken to show us how to use the system both at the terminal and via our mobile phones and computers. When we had issues with our dynamic IP address Zimcos AVS knew of the problem before we did because of their attention to detail and great aftercare, and the next day came in to resolve issues and again setup all the external devices to veiw the system remotely. We have since had Zimcos AVS back again to quote for a door entry system and these works will be underway soon. It is a relief to find nice honest hardworking people who do not try and pass off faults once the job is completed even if the fault is caused by the internet provider they still endevour to find a solution. I will continue to use and recommend Zimcos AVS to other people."
