About Us

Dallas Security Systems, Inc. (DSS) is an independent, owner operated security company. We were established in 1978 and according to Security Distributing & Marketing Magazine (SDM), we consistently rank within the top thirty to forty largest security integrators in the United States. We are a company with broad engineering skills in integrated security and access control systems, closed circuit television, intercoms and intrusion detection systems. Over the years, however, DSS has developed into more than a systems integrator. The DSS name is synonymous with dedication, attention to detail and above all else, quality to the customer.

In addition to residential and retail accounts, we provide security programs for hospitals, schools, police headquarters buildings, corporate headquarters, defense contractors and high rise office buildings. We do a number of systems for office building management and individual tenants in those buildings.

Our main market area is the Dallas-Ft. Worth Metroplex. We have some clients as far south as Waco. To the north, we have clients in Sherman and Denison. To the east we have accounts in Tyler and to the west we go to Weatherford.

We own and operate our own Central Station. It is listed by Underwriters Laboratories (UL) and meets or exceeds all of the standards of that agency.

DSS uses its own installers to do all of our cabling, programming and to mount all of our devices. In other words, we do not use subcontract labor to install our wire and equipment. We do use electrical contractors to run high voltage wiring and locksmiths when necessary. We also select our equipment based on quality, not price. We feel that this gives us quality control and our clients receive the best product possible.

Company founders Bill and Jan Monroe along with two other partners, started DSS in 1978 after service with the Dallas Police Department. Vice President of Operations Kevin Meadows and Vice President of Sales Ray Cherry both have over 30 years of security industry experience. All of our owners are involved with the company on a daily basis.

We are glad to provide a full reference list of commercial clients. We encourage potential clients to arrange an appointment to come by to visit our offices at 10731 Rockwall Road in Dallas, Texas
