Atlas Security Service was started in 1962 by Marvin Britton, followed by the Alarm Control Center central monitoring station in  1963. Mr. Britton’s desire was to provide security to the people of Springfield and the surrounding regions by providing quality security systems and quality monitoring services at reasonable prices.

Atlas Security Service began to develop its own product that allowed traditional direct wire systems to be computer automated. Atlas Security Service is the largest independently owned and operated security company in Southwest Missouri.

Mr. Britton was able to rely upon his family to continue the pursuit of securing the region. In the late 1980′s, Marvin turned over much of the control of the company to his son-in-law, Jim Wade. Jim assumed the leadership of Atlas Security Service in 1992 and is the current owner/president. In February of 2006, Atlas Security Service moved into a new location. With this new state-of-the-art facility, Atlas is more than ever able to handle your security needs. Now in 2016, Atlas Security can say that we have been providing peace of mind in the Ozarks for over 50 years!

At Atlas Security, our Operations Center is the heartbeat that supports everything we do and every service we provide. With our certified, experienced and dedicated team of professionals operating 24 hours a day, 365 days a year; Atlas has one of the highest ranking UL-listed Central Stations in the industry. Our Central Station achieved and maintains the prestigious 5-Diamond Certification recognized by CSAA. Our state-of-the-art facility has multiple backup systems that possess the latest in monitoring technology.

We work around the clock to make our Central Station the pride of the industry. We care about what we do, the people we help and the many lives we protect each and every day.

Atlas’ UL-listed Central Station uses the most modern computer and telecommunication technology in combination with highly trained, Five Diamond Certified operators to respond to electronic signals originating from customer security systems installed in homes and businesses.

Alarm signals from customer systems originate from sensors located on the premises: smoke detectors, motion detectors, glass break detectors, and door and window contacts. The security system then automatically initiates communication with the Central Station, either through the normal telephone system, the internet, or by cellular transmission.


At the Central Station, the alarm signals are received. These signals are then processed by our alarm receivers that pass the alarm signals into our servers for further processing.  After initial processing by the servers, all information about the customer’s system and the current alarm signal is automatically sent to a highly trained operator for further action.  All of this happens in a matter of seconds so that our operators are able to assist you as quickly as possible.

In August of 2012, AT&T Inc. announced that the shutdown of its second-generation, or “2G,” wireless network will be complete by the end of 2016. This shutdown will not occur all at once. It will appear sporadically across the country and on January 1, 2017, the 2G wireless network will cease to exist.Why is AT&T shutting down the 2G wireless network?Data use on wireless networks is increasing as more and more people adopt smartphones. AT&T realizes that shutting down the 2G network and using that space for 3G and 4G networks will drastically increase data capacity and speed on the newer networks.Why does the 2G Sunset affect alarm systems?Wireless alarm systems communicate via cellular networks like the 2G, 3G and 4G networks. Many wireless alarm systems were installed with a 2G compatible GSM (Global System for Mobile Communication) device that can only communicate via the 2G wireless network. Therefore, when the 2G network ceases to exist on January 1, 2017, these alarm systems will no longer be able to communicate alarm signals.What do you need to do to make sure your alarm system will not be affected by the 2G Sunset?If your system will be affected, we will discuss the next step in making sure your alarm system will be protected from the elimination of the 2G wireless network.
