Bates Security, Formerly Central Security

Central Security & Electronics has served Central Florida and the Lake Placid area since 1969. Now, we are excited to continue that journey under the new name of Bates Security!

Our merger with Bates Security will bring exciting new changes for new and existing customers of Central Security. But some things will not change, such as our mission to provide profes­sional, quality security instal­la­tions and service to our customers throughout Lake Placid, Sebring, Avon Park, and many other locations in Central Florida.

About Us

Our Principles

We bring a law-enforcement perspective to every custom security project

When Sonny Bates bought Sonitrol in 1969, he reinvented how our team went about securing homes and businesses. Sonny understood the criminal mind better than most thanks to his law enforcement background. His techniques are still used by our company to this day.

We have customer service that cares

Who wants to talk to a recording on the phone, when you need customer service now? No one! When you call us, you'll always get live customer service at our customer service center.

We use only the best security equipment

As a police officer, Sonny quickly learned that cheap security equipment was about as useful as having no equipment at all. That's why, to keep you safe, we only install equipment from the very best security brands in the country.
