Our Company

For over 30 years, Down East Protection Systems has been among the most recognized names in electronic security services throughout eastern North Carolina. In 1978, the DEPS founder began building our excellent reputation by providing quality, monitored burglar and fire alarm products to the region; upon new family ownership in 2000, we increased our products and services to include video surveillance, access control systems and home automation.

Later, we continued to develop our scope of expertise with services including armed/unarmed guards, loss prevention and safety/risk management evaluation. In so doing, we have become a thorough, one-stop solution for nearly any residential or commercial security need.

Our headquarters are located in Kinston, NC, approximately 75 miles east of Raleigh. In 2006, we expanded our operation by purchasing ORR Security in Jacksonville, which increased our service area in a manner that allowed us to better serve the entire Coastal Plain region. Additionally, DEPS 24/7 alarm monitoring services are provided by a UL listed, locally based central station, so you can be assured that our agents are familiar with the area.

In short, we have a heart for the communities of Down East North Carolina, and aim to help protect them with our superior products and services.

"Tands, Inc./Bojangles’ has been working with DEPS Security Group for several years. Tom Vermillion, Greg Smith, and their teams have always been very responsive to our security requests, and proactive in identifying opportunities for improvement within our security systems.

We currently have over 400 Mobotix Cameras, and have experienced excellent results in regards to mechanics, audio, and video. In addition, DEPS has aided us in multiple internal and external investigations, provided guard service, as well as assisted with Human Resources issues. We highly recommend DEPS Security Group for any security needs your company may have."
