Policy Change: How We Handle Your Alarm Signals! READ MORE
We inform, secure and provide peace of mind for our customers through unwavering commitment and steadfast accountability.
This results in unequaled customer satisfaction achieved through a shared dedication to the safety, security and betterment of our customers and our community.
At Wayne Alarm Systems, culture is more than just a hiring strategy, company outings, or full health benefits. It’s a code for the way we conduct ourselves as a team and as individuals every day. Every person here has chosen to be here and invest themselves in the Wayne Alarm Systems mission. Some principals of our culture include innovation, grit, tenacity, cross-team collaboration, transparency, and being truly mission-driven.
Wayne Alarm believes that giving back to the local community is a responsibility, not a choice.
“You give, and you get,” says Wayne Alarm CEO Ralph Sevinor. This is especially true with the local community colleges and vocational schools that Wayne Alarm sponsors, as many of the graduates go on to become employees at Wayne Alarm. “They help to secure our future.”
The Wayne Alarm Systems team is passionate about protecting the lives and properties of our clients with the best safety solutions available, while providing exceptional customer support every day."
“When I was 12, my parent’s home was robbed…”
In 1967, the home of Wayne Alarm Systems President and CEO Ralph W. Sevinor was robbed, leaving Ralph and his family feeling traumatized, violated, and vulnerable.
“I saw what it did to my family. It was emotional for my mother especially because her personal jewelry were stolen.”
It was then when Ralph unknowingly kickstarted his career by giving back the peace of mind to other families and companies whose sense of safety and security had been stolen from them.
At the young age of 12, Ralph utilized his passion and knowledge for electronics and technology to design and build his own alarm in his parent’s basement.
“It was a trial and error process. I didn’t even know if it was going to work.”
By the second time around, he had an alarm that was in commission. Family and friends saw what Ralph had created and wanted in. Thirteen years later, after studying electrical engineering at Wentworth and Northeastern and working nights in the alarm industry, Ralph opened DBA Wayne Alarm and hired his first full time employee.
