Our Story

Started in 1979 by a retiring NYC detective, Country Home Security has been serving our communities with excellence since.

Current owner Renard Barto was the first installer hired in 1979. He was hired by his brother-in-law, the founder and previous owner of Country Home Security. Renard has over 44 years of experience in the security industry.

Renard’s family has been involved in the business as well. His wife Gina has worked in all aspects of the business, from installs to sales to managing the central station.

Today Renard and Gina’s two oldest daughters are an integral part of Country Home with Mellissa managing the office and operations and Alicia managing the service/ installation as well as the financial aspects.

Country Home Security is not just a company that has generations serving you, but we also have customers who have been with us generationally as their children now are grown and joined the Country Home Security family as well. 

The rest of our team Todd(TJ) and Dean are also long timers, with TJ serving our clients since 2016 and Dean who recently returned to us after moving back in the community with Jeanne his wife.
