New York’s Most Trusted Security Systems Provider

The United Advantage


Locally owned and operated


When selecting a security company, it may seem easy to choose the nationally recognized name, but do you want to be just another number in a bevy of franchised companies? Locally owned and operated, United was founded by a native New Yorker and WWII veteran and has been serving its customers for over 65 years. Some security companies who advertise services in New York may operate monitoring stations from upstate New York and as far as Colorado. United’s 24 hour central monitoring station is located in downtown Manhattan and there is always a live and local operator to assist you. All of United’s departments are located at our security headquarters on West Houston Street. Our reliable sales, service, expert installation and monitoring departments are all under one roof, providing the most technologically advanced and cost efficient service for our customers.


UL and FDNY approved central station

 United’s 24 hour monitoring station is UL listed and certified. The Underwriters Laboratories (UL) creates standards and conducts rigorous safety testing and certification of products and services to assure those standards are upheld. As one of only three central stations in Manhattan to be both UL certified and meet the stringent requirements by the New York City Fire Department, you can be assured that United is the most qualified security company for the job.



 With over 65 years of experience in burglar and fire alarm system installations, United has you covered. Our full service security systems include card access control systems, closed circuit television (CCTV), intercoms, and video patrol with real-time verification via United’s Business Watch program. Our technicians are the best in the field and several have been with us for over 30 years. Now that’s loyalty. Our central station managers are Central Station Alarm Association (CSAA) certified and our technicians hold NICET certifications.  Experience, loyalty, and dedication; that is what to expect when you become part of the United family of security.  Our customer base is vast and includes the U.S. Federal Government, Department of Army and Navy, Department of State, Department of City, office and residential buildings, warehouses, hotels, hospitals, fine restaurants, and retail establishments as well as your local mom-n-pop shops.
