VSA was founded by Paul T. Berry Jr, back in 1978 to fill a need in our community. At that time there were only a couple burglar alarm providers and no camera system providers to speak of. He built the company from scratch not using high-pressure sales tactics, but instead honesty and integrity. Maintaining an A+ with the BBB was always pretty easy for him to do. As a matter of fact, we have yet to receive a BBB complaint in over 40 years.
Paul T. Berry III “Pete” spent summers and every school break working for VSA from the time he turned 14. Starting at the bottom, in crawl spaces and attics, he worked his way through installations, sales, and finally management. Pete became President and CEO of the company in 2012 and Paul Berry Jr. officially retired. Delores Berry, Paul Berry Jr.’s wife, remains involved as the CFO today. Mike Lankford, Vice President, has been helping to grow VSA for over 30 years. He has seen countless changes in product, technology, and even application.
We are proud to be large enough and established enough that we are not going anywhere. But we are also small enough to know our customers. That is important. We have used the oldest, largest, and safest central station in Columbus for our entire existence. We buy trucks, wire, and equipment here locally. We hire locally and have never laid a single employee off. We have maintained a sustainable growth for 40 years.
– VSA Security Systems
I choose to use VSA Security Systems for my home because they have wonderful customer service, and always respond quickly to my questions and concerns. They have updated my security system, as well as installed a motion-activated doorbell, a coded door lock, and indoor cameras in my home. Their expertise in home security is invaluable.
I have used VSA for my office security for the past 12 years. They have always provided an excellent service at a fair price and with exceptional service. I trust both the company and their employees. They have always been incredibly responsive to every need that we have thrown their way. They have earned my highest recommendation.
We recently had an issue with our outdoor television. The VSA service technician that came to my house was knowledgeable about the equipment and got our outdoor television and sound bar working perfectly. He made sure he answered all of my questions before he left. He was polite and professional. I work in customer service, and was thoroughly impressed! Thank you VSA!
Highly recommend VSA Security. They are extremely responsive to my growing security needs. One of the things I love about VSA is that the technicians that come out to work on my system when I am upgrading our adding equipment are the same ones that installed the original system many years ago. So, they understand where everything is, how the wires are run and they can quickly get to work and most importantly I trust them in my home.
VSA is a wonderful company. I appreciate that it is locally owned- they are invested in our community and they value their customers because of that. Our service is always top notch, and we feel secure knowing that VSA is monitoring our system. We are glad to be VSA customers.
For over two years, VSA has been an invaluable asset and partner. Their professionalism and service in managing our security and access control needs is second to none.
We’ve been using VSA for about 8 years and they recently finished a security system install at our new home. We couldn’t be more pleased with the experience. Adam (sales) was incredibly knowledgeable and great about laying out technology options for our home’s floor plan. Greg (technician) was friendly and efficient. Best of all, as a LOCAL company, Pete and team provide friendly and personalized service I find lacking in most businesses today. Thank you for a great experience!
For 18+ years Goodwill Industries of the Southern Rivers has relied on VSA to provide alarms and security solutions for our offices and stores. Their partnership has proved invaluable to providing a safe working environment for our team members.
