Residential and commercial security franchises
Security is big business. We have a lot of things to protect, from our homes to our wireless networks to the annual holiday get-together. Even if you aren’t in a position to launch your own security company from the ground up, there are plenty of franchise opportunities to give you a foothold in the industry.

Interactive security lets users know who disarmed a system and when, monitors doors and windows, and notifies when sensors are tripped on sensitive locations—such as the liquor cabinet during your teenager’s sleepover. Two-way voice connection and real-time alerts deliver peace of mind. Franchise fees are $21,000, with $40,000 of capital required to open a new unit.
Vacation homes are great for getting away from it all, but keeping them secure is one of those daily hassles that people want to get away from in the first place. There are few worse buzzkills than packing up and making the trek for a summer vacation or long weekend and finding on arrival that your second home has been broken into. Eye On Your Home handles security, maintenance, and property management so homeowners can relax.
With fast full-service installs and tuning visits 30 and 90 days after installation, customers don’t have to worry about making sure their equipment is still working.
