A1 started as an idea in a small studio apartment with 3 surveillance experts. All with previous surveillance experience from other security companies here in Dallas Texas. Our thought of being the most reliable and most affordable security group on the market became much more than a thought, it became an addiction. Finally, in 2007, A1 Security Cameras was born.
In the year 2008, we decided it was time to take A1 to the next level. Hiring new employees and launching our first call center, the A1 family grew, and we moved into our first commercial building. We progressed as a company and were able to make our mark as “the new guys in town” in the security world.
2009 marked the year that our installation division was created. Affordability and reliability wasn’t enough. We decided it was time to expand into more markets allowing our customers full service security. At the same time, we moved into our new and improved 3000 Sq. Ft building. We then got certified by Acti, received the Milestone award, and even had a booth at ISC West 2009 to represent A1 as an up and coming security company.
2010 was a learning experience for A1. We began selling overseas which was a learning curve, but we proceeded to sell to other countries including Europe, Asia, South America, and Australia. The transition was rough, but we muscled through. That same year, we moved into an even bigger building being our 5000 Sq. Ft office in Addison Texas. We became Aimetis certified and began selling to large schools like Texas A&M University. This was truly a growing period for our company.
2011 was also a year of progress for A1. We began to sell License Plate specific cameras along with satellites. This same year marked the achievement of selling to over 50 universities in Texas. We were slowly becoming a staple in the industry and had a lot of momentum to move forward.
2012 was the year we got our IPro Certification (Panasonic Reseller Certification). We then went on to be one of the first to offer a solar solution within the US. This was a huge step for us as we really believe solar will be integrated more and more often as time goes by. We also went on to supply Sandia National labs with a security system. They were one of the companies most famous for World War II’s Manhattan Project, which was when the world’s first atomic bombs were built.
2013 was the year we were presented with a very interesting and promising opportunity. We partnered with an out of state installation company and was provided the chance to supply 11 military bases in Hawaii, fully equipped security systems. This was exciting for us because we knew our cameras were reliable and durable enough to be used in the military and now we had the chance to prove it.
2014 was the year A1 Security Cameras became extremely popular. We went from being a wishful thinking security company to being one of the stars of the industry. NBC news invited us to be on their show, so we could discuss the importance and capabilities of our cameras. They were particularly interested in elevator cameras and how they worked. We then went on the show to demonstrate and explain how these cameras worked.
In 2015, A1 Security Cameras became the top search result on google if you searched for “security cameras” and other security related terms. Our customers feedback had been continuously growing and reached a remarkable 4.6 out of 5 and has continued to grow to this day.
2016 Still based out of our Addison Texas office, we modified our building and added a “demo section” which allowed customers to connect and test their equipment before they install it on their own. We also added a GeoVision certification adding to our massive certification collection.
2017 and we are still at the top of the google listings for anything security related. Offering the best prices on the web and we offer over 25 different brands at the most affordable price on the net.
Even today in 2018, we are still a growing company. We moved into an even bigger and better office just down the road from our previous one still located in Addison. We spared no expense building our showroom with demonstration of our solar equipment, License plate recognition, special software, and much more! We encourage you to come by and check it out as we would love to give you a tour! Our address is 16210 Midway Road 75001, Addison Texas and we are open Monday –Friday from 8:00 am to 6:00 pm.
