These guys really helped me. We were able to recover a stolen trailer with 2 ATVs, a compressor, helmets, gear and more. Justin came to my business location to pull up the video showing the thief stealing the trailer. We got a thumb drive recording and still picture of the plates. He was in jail within 24 hrs and I got my property back. These guys... give great service at a fair price. Many thanks to Justin at Approtex, Sheriff Criner and his staff at MCSO. 5 stars to all!!!

Read This carefully if you want the best protection in the Permian basin!!!Aprotex has and will be the only security company I will ever trust with my business, my system is unmatched by any other security company, its extremely low maintenance, covers every inch inside the walls of this building, floor to ceiling including the floor and ceiling.... Security isn't important its absolutely essential !!! I'm trying to keep this short and direct. Aprotex the company itself is impressive, service, equipment, quality, cost, the people all deserve 5 stars .We have been clients of Aprotex for 40 years.. they contact me before I know I have an issue, this is rare but batteries do wear out components need updated. They show up and service it immediately every time on time.Obviously I really like Aprotex. and this is another very important fact to consider. when my alarm is triggered Aprotex contacts OPD.. OPD responds immediately to the call !!! OPD knows its not a false alarm!! They know its Aprotex equipment and they know its monitored by Aprotex... I ask you not to take me at my word please!! For your safety and protection contact dispatch with the Odessa Police Department and ask their opinion.read more

Great family owned business! Good to work with, reliable and affordable. Haven’t had a security company like them since we moved. Way better than the alarm system chains out there.

Aprotex was referred to us when we purchased our current home. Everything went extremely smooth from the minute we called them. Their customer service was top-notch, every step was explained, and carried out as promised. Truly has been an enjoyable experience from start to present. We would definitely recommend to anyone in the process of trying... to secure the home or business.read more

We have Aprotex where I work. I am in charge of security, the Aprotex guys set up our cameras & alarm system & showed me how it all works. I am very happy. The monitoring folks helped me on Saturday, they walked me through a concern I was having. I recommend this outfit to anyone wanting a good security company.
We have found the everyone at Aprotex to be friendly, efficient and knowledgeable! We recently made the switch from another local security company and have not regretted it one bit! We would definitely recommend doing business with these folks!
