Security Service with a Sound Advantage: Over 40 Years of Protection
Started right here in Hartford, Connecticut in 1972, Sonitrol New England has been serving clients throughout Connecticut, Massachusetts and Rhode Island for more than 40 years.
In that time, we have grown to an organization with over 100 employees and offices throughout Southern New England, all guided by the same fundamental principles of providing local security service powered by the unique audio verification system that only Sonitrol offers. Sonitrol New England is consistently ranked as one of the Top 100 Security Companies in the Country, per SDM, a leading industry magazine. We’re quite proud of this accomplishment, as it ranks our local office and monitoring station among industry giants.
Sonitrol’s roots date back to the early 1970’s in Hartford, Connecticut. Douglas M. Curtiss graduated from Williams College and decided to take a summer job helping his roommate’s father open a new security systems business in Stamford, Connecticut, called Sonitrol. His summer job turned into an opportunity for Doug to learn the security business from the ground up, first as a management trainee in technical sales and central station operations and later as general manager of Sonitrol’s Norwalk offices.
Two years after starting with Sonitrol, at the age of 24, Doug purchased his own franchise, Sonitrol New England. Many of our long-term customers still remember Doug with a tape recorder slung over his shoulder playing recordings of live burglaries in process, as part of his presentation of Sonitrol’s unique security services.
This technology has evolved to the high tech security system used in businesses across the country today. In the last 35 years, more than 174,000 apprehensions have been made nationally thanks to the Sonitrol intrusion security system.
Our background and experience has propelled Sonitrol as a leader in providing security solutions to New England schools, businesses, places of worship, non-profits, warehouses, office buildings, multi-use buildings, as well as many other industries. Whatever field you work in, we’ve likely designed an integrated security system to address the unique needs of your industry. Sonitrol is the go-to company for integrated, state-of-the-art solutions for intrusion security, video equipment, access control systems and fire protection services, all backed with professional monitoring by experienced, trained personnel. Sonitrol is locally owned and operated. Our offices, service technicians and central station operate right here in New England and all are Sonitrol employees – just New Englanders protecting New Englanders.
Sonitrol celebrates more than 40 years of providing corporate security solutions in Connecticut, Massachusetts and Rhode Island. Our UL-approved monitoring station is situated in Rocky Hill, Connecticut and is staffed around-the-clock with professionally trained dispatchers to serve the needs of Sonitrol customers. We’re one of only a few security companies that operate our own in-house local monitoring center Sonitrol is the only provider in the country that offers a security system utilizing verified technology.
The benefits of Sonitrol’s verification in the alarm monitoring process include the ability to provide law enforcement with details regarding potentially dangerous situations should the police be dispatched, which leads to significantly increased credibility and rapport with local police departments and emergency dispatchers. The compounded effect of our highly trained operators’ attention to detail and the relationship it creates with local police departments allows Sonitrol New England to apprehend more criminals and maximize community resources by combating false alarm rates at more than double the efficiency of the national average. These key elements contribute to Sonitrol having the highest apprehension rate and lowest false alarm rate in the business.
