"Shield Security has been a great partner"

Cameron McNie - Owner, Hawaiian Bros Island Grill

Commercial Security

“Since we opened our first store Shield Security has been a great partner. We wanted a company that we could grow with and they have answered the call. Shield has done a great job providing a quality video surveillance and alarm system at each one of our locations. They are easy to talk to and they solve problems fast. They have always been professional and everyone I have interacted with has been knowledgeable. I would highly recommend them to any other business that is looking for a security partner."

"I Would Highly Recommend Shield"

Mike Matheny - Manager, Kansas City Royals

"Security is important to me and my family, so when I asked around, Shield came highly recommended. I can see why. The consultation was professional, courteous, and educational. They designed a beautiful state of the art Security, Smart Home, and Video Surveillance System that provides power, convenience and ease of use. The installers were knowledgeable, professional and helpful.

So whether I'm home or on the road, everything is at my finger tips. I would highly recommend Shield for anyone wanting great people, products and service."

"You are amazing."

"I just got to the office and couldn't remember if I left the door open or not, so I checked my phone."

- Steve (Realtor)

"Very Impressed"

"you did absolutely everything you said you were going to do for the price quoted, explained things very thoroughly, technician was on time and very professional . . ."

Lesson 1: Basic Security Principles (The 3 D's)

Regardless of what type of security system you decide on, there are three main principles to security, whether your are a home owner or a business. They are sometimes referred to as the 3 D’s. Deterrence, Denial, and Detection. By filling out the form to the right, you can order a free home security checklist that we will email to you, providing many safety and security ideas.  Our main office is located in Overland Park, but we serve a large Kansas City centered region from Harrisonville to St. Joseph and from Grain Valley to Topeka.


Your first priority is to discourage a would-be criminal from targeting you in the first place. This involves making it look like you are home even when you are not and demonstrating that there is a security system of some sort in place. Also, by keeping valuables out of sight. You can get more ideas in our home security checklist.


If you are unsuccessful in deterring the criminal and they decide to target your home, you want to make it as difficult and time consuming as possible to gain entry. This certainly includes closing and locking all doors and windows, but also track locks, dead-blots and other additional reinforcements on vulnerable entry points. Our security experts can help you identify some of these points and give ideas for reinforcing.


OK, so we weren’t able to deter the criminal and they were able to gain access to your premises. Now it is time to detect the intrusion as quickly as possible and report it to you and the authorities immediately. This serves two purposes. First it gets the authorities on the seen as soon as possible to try to apprehend the criminal, but just as important, it allows them to secure your property before you return home so that you minimize your chances of coming home to surprise an intruder.

“Our Priority is Protecting People and Giving You the Peace of Mind You Deserve.  Our mission is to make sure that if there is an intrusion, fire, or other emergency, that we notify you and the authorities as quickly as possible."

"Social Distancing" protocol

Shield is still open and remains committed to keeping you safe and our supply chain is intact.  We will continue to provide the very best service, and have included additional options to help with "social-distancing". These options can be adapted to your specific situation, but can include things like:

  • We can conduct "Virtual Security Consultation" over the phone or with a "zoom" meeting
  • We are taking steps to help safe guard the health of our staff and our clients when at their locations
  • Any client not feeling comfortable with an in-home service call will be offered other options
  • For small businesses, we have a special, "vacant business" system with a panel, smart-phone access, indoor camera with alerts, motion detector and 2 door contacts to give you peace of mind while away.
  • We have added an option for basic self-install of a pre-configured system, with a technician coming at a later date to professionally complete installation
  • If you would like to reserve a security system in case supply chains are later interrupted. We can do that as well.

"I'm so glad I went with you"

"I'm really liking it. It's so easy to use, even the app. I forgot to set it once and got a reminder text and was able to set it from my cell phone at my appointment. Also like the feature of knowing that my pet sitter has come and gone."

- Rick (Home Owner)

Lesson 2: Security Systems Fundamentals

Security System Types

Today there are two main types of security systems: Wireless All-In-One Security Systems and Hardwired/Hybrid Security Systems. Both systems can support similar of features.  Wireless Systems have several advantages, including ease of installation, outstanding value and flexibility in positioning equipment. The hardwired systems don't have as many batteries to replace and have and are well suited for large installations, existing systems, and new builds.

Control Equipment

  • Central Controller or Processor that controls all of the functions of the security system. They process the signals from the detection equipment.
    • A hardwired controller has the processor, keypad, and siren as separate elements and can use hardwired or wireless sensors
    • An integrated all in one controller usually uses all wireless sensors, but often bundle additional functionality and features at a competitive price.
  • Keypad to allow user to control the alarm system
  • Backup battery to power the system when it loses power
  • Siren to alert people of an intrusion or fire as well as to startle and disorient an intruder
  • Digital Communicator to alert central station of emergency. It could be of three varieties:
    • Land-line phone
    • Cellular radio
    • Internet
  • Shield installs Honeywell Security Systems in most of our new installations, but we have many customers with 2GIG, Interlogix, DSC, and Ademco.

Detection Equipment

  • Door and window contacts to detect unauthorized entry
  • Pet immune motion detectors to detect the presence of people moving around within a protected area
  • Acoustic glass break detectors to listen for the sound of breaking glass in a room
  • Smoke and heat detectors to detect fire
  • Garage Door Sensors to help you make sure your home is secure
  • Flood detectors, Freeze detectors, Carbon monoxide detectors etc. to detect other threats
  • Almost all detection equipment is available in hardwired and wireless versions
