What Sets Ackerman Security Systems Apart?

What Sets Ackerman Security Systems Apart?

Personal tragedy served as the catalyst for establishing Ackerman Security Systems. In 1967, founder Charles Ackerman suffered a gunshot wound when an intruder broke into his home. The incident prompted Charles to establish a residential security company that focused on the needs of average homeowners, with a focus on customer service.

While Ackerman provides commercial security services throughout the United States, it only offers residential service in the metro Atlanta area. The company sells and installs a full range of security and home automation equipment, from smart locks to video doorbells to indoor video cameras and offers 24/7 monitoring services starting at just $19.95 per month.

While many security companies offer guarantees on equipment, Ackerman goes a step further with a 200% money back guarantee. If a thief burglarizes your Ackerman protected home, the company will pay 100% of your deductible, plus a matching amount in cash, up to $25,000. Ackerman has served the Atlanta area for more than half a century and holds an A- rating with the Better Business Bureau.
