Universal Services of America

Universal Service is part of the security group Universal Protection Services and was founded in 1965 providing security services and building maintainance.

Services Universal Offers:

The company offers life safety and fire systems, training programs for access control , CCTV, fire alarm management, intrusion detection, parking equipment, physical security and visitor management systems.

According to Inc., the company had 2012 revenues of $718.1 million, representing a growth of 204% over three years. Inc. reports the company added 14,240 jobs in 18 months ended mid-2013, for a total of 35,000 employees.

As part of its security and life safety solutions, Universal will monitor all aspects of a facility from HVAC, CCTV, access control and intrusion detection.

Universal Service also offers self-monitoring solutions for facility managers who wish to take on that burden themselves.


It is one of the most popular home automation companies in USA, famous for unleashing thousands of young door-to-door salespeople every summer to peddle security and home automation systems, Vivint over the past 18 months added 1,943 jobs for a total of 6,496 employees, according to Inc.

The figure is misleading, however. One year ago, Vivint employed about 2,800 people full time, with the staff swelling by about 3,000 for the summer season. So the numbers don’t quite add up.

Even so, a spokesperson tells CE Pro: “The majority of the new hires are not seasonal. This year Vivint built and fully staffed the new Innovation Center in Utah, call centers in Spokane and Minnesota, and also made numerous Vivint Solar hires.”

When Vivint raised as an strong home automation company?

Since it was founded in 1999 (as APX Alarm), Vivint has relied on third-party product and service providers – most notably security and automation hardware from 2GIG (now owned by Nortek’s Linear brand) and cloud-enabled security and home automation services from Alarm.com.

As it moves into its own product development, the company is staffing up the Utah Innovation Center.

For the residential market, Vivint will continue to sell security and home automation door-to-door with seasonal workers, but also plans to bolster its full-time sales and marketing staff in Utah.

Much of this planning takes place at Vivint’s new Innovation Lab, a skunkworks organization of big dreamers, currently numbering about 100 product designers, user experience experts, marketers, researchers, operations guys and other thinkers and doers.

What does Vivint exactly does?

Vivint’s security and home automation offers include a self-contained security/automation touchscreen system; Z-Wave-enabled door locks, thermostats, lighting controls and other devices; IP-enabled cameras; security sensors; and remote home monitoring and management.

Vivint owns its own security central monitoring stations, but customers can also monitor their own security and automation systems themselves through the Internet and iDevice apps. The company charges up to $70/month for a complete service that includes security monitoring and the customer’s remote access to Z-Wave devices and cameras, plus cloud services that include geo-location.

Latest Acquisitions 

Vivint was acquired by Blackstone Capital for about $1.86 billion in 2012 (after 2GIG divestiture). Inc. magazine does not list the company’s revenues, but Forbes pegs it at $400 million for the fiscal year anded Dec. 31, 2012.
