About Us


About American Security Systems

American Security Systems was founded in 1980 and has continued to grow, becoming one of New York’s largest independent security solutions providers. It is the 65th largest alarm / security company in the nation.  We have over 5,000 Central Station alarm customers, and over 3,000 customers with other types of systems. Our Central Station is fully UL Certified and NYCFD approved. We’re big enough to provide our clients with a full range of the best products and systems in the marketplace, yet we’re small enough and so locally focused that we can deliver outstanding customer service and support.

Our clients range from many of New York’s most prominent corporations, such as AOL Time Warner to noteworthy establishments, like the office of the New York State Attorney General’s Office, to high-profile individuals, including politicians, UN dignitaries and international theater and film stars. No customer is too small or large for us, from a bodega to a 100-building complex.
