Pye-Barker says the addition will bring a full suite of fire protection and security alarm services to new communities in the Norwalk, Connecticut area.

Pye-Barker Fire & Safety – the largest fully integrated and full-service fire protection, life safety and security services provider in the U.S. – has acquired Security Solutions Inc., a security, alarms and surveillance systems provider serving the Norwalk, Connecticut area.

A family-run business for more than 30 years, Security Solutions has built a solid presence with customers from Greenwich to New Haven. Pye-Barker is enabled through SSI’s addition to bring its full suite of fire protection and security alarm services to new communities.

Founded and led by the Orvis family, Security Solutions Inc. (SSI) has created a stellar reputation in the Northeast, offering security alarms, fire alarms, CCTV, access control and 24-7 monitoring. Current President James “Jamie” Orvis is well-known for his leadership within the Electronic Security Association (ESA), which recognized him with the 2009 Person of the Year Award, and the Alarm Industry Research and Educational Foundation (AIREF), where he founded the AIREF Golf Classic to fund industry research and training.

As innovators in the electronic security space, the Orvis family has instilled an entrepreneurial spirit in its company culture, empowering team members to make decisions in the best interest of the customer.

“SSI has been leading and moving the industry forward for over 30 years, and I’m eager to watch how Pye-Barker will build upon our legacy of innovation and expertise to take us to new heights,” SSI President and Owner Jamie Orvis said.

“The Orvis family has grown Security Solutions Inc. from a small alarms provider to a leading systems integration business by staying on the forefront of new technology and building a team that is empowered through ongoing training,” said Bart Proctor, Pye-Barker CEO. “The SSI team will make a great addition to Pye-Barker as we work toward a unified goal of protecting every community.”

The highly skilled and experienced SSI team will continue to serve customers in Connecticut.
