A Google seach for home security systems Buffalo, NY will yield many great options for your home security. When it comes to alarm systems, it's smart to take a good solid look at who'se out there. As founder and president of SHIELD Security Systems, I’m writing today to share my perspective.

"Why should I go with SHIELD?"

"What makes you different than other Buffalo security providers?"

"Can't I just install a home security system myself?"


If I had a nickle every time I answered these questions, I'd be rich! (I don't... therefore, I'm not!) ... But SHIELD has successfully answered these, and many other, questions for clients in the Buffalo and Western NY areas. 

Truth is, home security has become a commodity.  From the do-it-yourself kits to the "one  man bands" to the big national guys, it seems that EVERYONE is doing security these days. The days of expert, detailed craftmenship and exceptional service may seem long gone, but at SHIELD, they are alive and well!

I'm Ken Jezioro, the founder of SHIELD Security Systems Buffalo NY. Almost 40 years ago, there weren't ANY security companies in Buffalo, NY, so I founded SHIELD in 1976. I was a full time cop at the time. I suppose I should use the politically correct "police officer," but honestly, I'm not a "politically correct" kind of guy.  I'm just a normal guy who loved working on the force. When I was a kid, my grandfather served as the chief homicide detective in downtown Buffalo. This inspired me to pursue a career in law enforcement.
