Why Shepherd Security

What separates us from the Competition is Dave Shepherd.

Dave’s name goes on every system we install or upgrade. He has personally installed over 500 systems himself and he inspects every new installation and upgrade. He has been around a long time and is not going anywhere soon. He and his wife have two young boys ages 5 and 10 to raise and put through college. Many of our customers have already met the oldest – Michael, on Sales or Service calls he went on with his Dad.



– Samuel and Michael


Dave treats his customers like an extended family and he is readily available to discuss your system, provide personal instruction, design a new system or upgrade and demonstrate the latest technologies. As he says: “The Buck Stops Here” Dave’s Direct Cell is 973-670-1355.
