Founded in 1979, DSC has a proud history of innovation. We introduced the industry’s first small and attractive security keypads and micro-processor-based alarm panels that set new standards for performance, convenience and ease-of-use.
In 1990 DSC acquired Sur-Gard, a competitor specializing in central station monitoring equipment, and in 1998, added to the family of brands with the acquisition of Italian security product manufacturer, Bentel. The DSC Group was acquired by Tyco International in 2002 and DSC, Sur-Gard and Bentel became individual brands under the Tyco Fire & Security portfolio. In 2007 Tyco separated into three independent, publicly traded companies with DSC moving under the new Tyco International banner.
In the 21st century, DSC continues to innovate in the areas of superior security monitoring, Internet security communications and wireless security products. We design and manufacture security control panels, detection devices, communication products and structured cabling solutions and our products are in homes and businesses across the globe.
