Our History

BH Security was started by Eliot Barry in 1978, while he was a freshman in college at home on Christmas Break. His father, who often traveled for business, asked Eliot to install a security system in the family home in Summit, NJ. From there, Eliot began working out of his family’s basement, installing security systems for friends and neighbors.

During college vacations, Eliot went door to door on the many retail avenues of Northern New Jersey, selling security systems to small business owners. After graduation, when his day job went bust, Eliot took the leap and committed to BH Security full-time. He landed his first large commercial accounts with Maidenform and Bethlehem Steel while working out of his bedroom.

Over the years, as security technology advanced and the company grew, the team at BH stayed at the forefront of their evolving industry. As their clients requested the latest advances, Eliot and his team began installing sophisticated access control systems, video surveillance systems, and more. All along, the team at BH Security strived to better serve their customers.

Today, BH Security is proud to have installed security systems throughout New Jersey and the Mid-Atlantic Region. With their security systems in homes and businesses, school districts and big box stores, and a wide variety of industries and applications, BH is known for their high level of service and responsiveness.

In 2021, Eliot retired from the business and BH joined the B Safe family of security companies. Notably, his entire team stayed on board, including employees with over 35 years with the company! Today, as part of the strongest security company in the Mid-Atlantic Region, BH’s customers receive the same high level of service while having access to even deeper customer support, service, and technology resources.

With over 185 employees in multiple offices throughout the Mid-Atlantic region, B Safe and its sister companies are proud to have protected tens of thousands of satisfied customers over the years. Most importantly, the entire BH and B Safe teams continue to make Eliot proud by serving their clients with the highest levels of integrity.
