Our Difference

We have the largest installation and service fleet in the area whether you're in Washington DC, Alexandria, Potomac or Baltimore. With more than 25 technicians in GPS enabled vehicles, there’s always a BRAVAS technician nearby.

Our innovative service and maintenance plans provide our customers with annual maintenance visits, a special service hotline, and discounted hourly rates. Our remote system monitoring service notifies our technicians of problems or potential problems with your system – many of which can be resolved without ever entering the property. All of these, combined with our dedicated service staff, provide the highest level of system reliability possible.
