Why Choose Us or Process

Six reasons why Kentucky business owners choose Bates Security

  1. Police-quality security advice

    Bates was founded in 1969 by Sonny Bates, a devoted police officer, who saw a need for better commercial security. We know what threats are out there and we know how to stop them thanks to this security background.

  2. Tailored to your business' needs

    Bates installers customize each and every security solution based on the needs of the property owner and the building itself. Anything less creates security holes that would allow even a novice criminal to gain access to sensitive areas of your business. 

  3. We protect the protectors

    Do you know who secures many of the police and firefighter stations across Kentucky? Answer: We do. And if we're good enough to secure them, we're definitely good enough to secure your business. 

  4. Award-winning business security solutions

    Bates Security keeps its focus local. But we've been both locally and nationally recognized for our security solutions and customer service. That includes SDM's 2018 "Dealer of the Year" and Security Sales & Integration Magazine's "Installer of the Year" in 2012 and 2016. 

  5. Local customer service that cares

    Our customer service is local and based right here in Kentucky. No bots, no automation. Just traditional customer service done right. 

  6. Guarantees you can touch

    Eligible systems come with a written and signed "Commitment to Service" which includes these guarantees:

    • $2,500 performance warranty
    • Satisfaction guarantee
    • Same-day emergency service guarantee
    • False alarm guarantee
