About Guardian Security

Guardian began as Guardian Alarm Systems of Pittsburgh, Inc. in 1950. At that time, their sole business was the installation and monitoring of security systems in jewelry stores.

In 1975, their name changed to Guardian Protection Services, Inc. and their focus expanded. Security systems for homes and businesses in Western Pennsylvania and the surrounding tri-state area became Guardian’s concentration.

After being named to Inc. Magazine’s top 500 list of America’s fastest-growing companies, Guardian caught the attention of the Armstrong Group of Companies who acquired the company in 1991 and has helped it grow to Guardian Protection today. Check out the full review of Guardian Protection here.

    Does your service have a doorbell camera

    1. Andrew Garcia Andrew Garcia says:

      Hi Katrina,
      Yes, Guardian does list a video doorbell camera on its website.

  3. Andrew Garcia Andrew Garcia says:

    Hi Petra,
    We’re not Guardian, so you’d need to contact them to ask about used panels.

  4. Avatar Anthony says:

    I just purchased a home that the previous owner had a guardian security system. The control panel still has captured images of the previous owners arming/disarming the security system. Is there anyway to reset the system and use the basic functions without getting monitoring service?

    1. Andrew Garcia Andrew Garcia says:

      Hi Anthony,
      You can call Guardian and ask, but all of their packages come with professional monitoring.
