How Securitas Direct works
There for you, especially when you are not there, since 1992.
A success story
1992: The first full-service provider
Securitas Direct was founded in 1992 and became the first company to provide an all-in-one solution for both private and SME consumers. As a pioneer, Securitas Direct was the first provider on the European and Swiss market to offer complete security solutions from a single source, i.e. a professional partner for consultations, installations, monitoring, response, support, and servicing.
1998: Strategic partnership with Zurich Insurance
Securitas Direct and Zurich Insurance decided to form a strategic partnership shortly before the turn of the millennium. A private residence or company premises with good security can avoid costs for damages or significantly reduce them in the event of an incident. Whilst Securitas Direct offers an ideal solution in terms of prevention and immediate measures in the event of an incident, the insurance takes care of the customer after the incident. A win-win situation for everybody involved and a successful alliance stretching over 20 years.
2000: First wireless system
We introduced the first wireless system for private residences and companies on the market at the turn of the new millennium. Wireless solutions make for quicker, more economical and efficient installations. These have now become the norm.
2008: Video and smart solutions
In 2008, Securitas Direct launched the first security system fitted with a camera, which alerts the police extremely quickly. It is also the first security system to be fitted with Smart Home functions. Yet another innovative feature: Images are only transmitted when the alarm is triggered, and via an encrypted protocol.
2010: First DIY system
In 2010 Securitas Direct offers offered its first do-it-yourself solution, which was purchased in more than 2,500 post offices. It is the first alarm system customers can install from start to finish all by themselves and that provides a comprehensive remote monitoring service.
2015: Strategic partnership with Swisscom
Securitas Direct collaborates with Swisscom on the launch of a SmartLife solution, which uses the latest technology and facilitates a combination of digital security and digital home management.
2018: ALL IP Migration
Replacement of all analogue devices with digital technology.
2020: Upgrading the mobile network
Migration of the entire portfolio to modern mobile transmission technologies.
