Holmes Security Systems is a division of Holmes Electric, Inc., a 109 year old company founded in Fayetteville, North Carolina, by Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr. The security division was started by Mr. J.D. (Luke) Wheeler, son-in-law of Mr. Holmes, in 1967. Today it is operated by his son, Stephen Holmes Wheeler, grandson of the late O.W. Holmes, Sr.

Since its start in 1967, the security systems division of the company has grown to become the area’s leader in security sales and central station monitoring. Holmes Security Systems is the only U.L Approved installation company in Eastern NC owning and operating a U.L. Approved Central Monitoring Station.

With offices in Fayetteville, NC & Wilmington, NC we offer a wide variety of security & fire  solutions for commercial and residential applications.

In the event of an emergency, Holmes Security System’s Central Monitoring Station is the vital communication link between your home security system ¬†or business security system and the appropriate emergency response agency. Located in our secure office in downtown Fayetteville, NC, our Underwriters Laboratories (UL) Approved monitoring center is operating 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Our staff of knowledgeable, professionally trained Alarm Dispatchers are always on duty, standing by to notify the proper authorities in the event of an alarm condition.

Using the latest technology, our Monitoring Center maintains and supports back-up systems that include:

  • Computer Networks
  • Electrical Power
  • Alternative telecommunication routing
  • Redundant alarm transmissions
  • Internal disaster management procedures.


WARNING! Two recent scams have been brought to our attention by our customers. The first is a telephone scam where the person claims to be with Holmes, or perhaps “home” security. They are saying that the customer needs to update their security system. The person, in some cases, speaks with a heavy foreign accent. While we are calling a small group of customers who need a radio upgrade, we do not routinely make random calls to our base.

The second scam involves a door knocker claiming to be from Holmes Security and is there to service the system. In one particular case he was wearing a shirt with an logo (not us), and asked the homeowner for his security code.

If you receive a call or a visit that you think is questionable, always ask for identification, and call our office. We are here 24 hours a day for your convenience!
