Customer Focused Security Solutions
Security Solutions Inc. (SSI) is a family owned systems integration company that has been providing burglar alarms, fire alarms, card access, video, telephone and entertainment systems to both residential and commercial clients for over 30 years.
The Orvis family got its start in the alarm business in 1969. Peter Orvis was a founding partner of a security company that became the largest provider in the North East. He left in 1978 and ultimately founded Security Solutions to get back to the personalized high quality service that he had a passion for. Peter is now retired and Jamie Orvis has been operating the business since the early 1990’s. Jamie has put together a leadership team of seasoned security professionals that together boast over 150 years of industry experience. Many of the team members were general managers or branch managers before taking their current positions. This level of management depth and experience is unparalleled in the alarm industry.
Headquartered in Norwalk, CT, SSI provides design, installation, repair service and monitoring services throughout Southern New England. We are listed by Underwriters Laboratory (U.L.) to install and service UL Certified Alarm systems and to provide UL listed Central Station Monitoring services. Due to its own internal drive for a superior level of service Security Solutions has the only UL listed central station in southern Connecticut. These systems and the monitoring to support them are designed to qualify our customers for insurance company eligibility and maximum premium discounts.
From its beginnings as a small, regional provider of traditional burglar & fire alarm systems, SSI has grown to become a systems integration firm and pioneer in making leading edge technology available to customers. SSI is among the first to introduce Alarm-Bridge Long Range Radio Alarm Monitoring to the region as an alarm primary or back-up communication option. Alarm-Bridge is the extra piece of mind that customers need to be sure their family and investments are safe in this ever changing telecommunications environment.
