Our Security System History

Trusted Security Services for Over 50 Years 

Shiver Security Systems, Inc. and Sonitrol of Southwest Ohio was founded in 1971 by Rex Shiver. Our goal from inception was to provide the most intelligent, effective, security solutions for both commercial and residential customers.  

Products and services include Sonitrol audio verification intrusion detection systems, access control systems, CCTV systems, fire detection systems, and external industrial monitoring functions. Services include sales and design, installation, service, local monitoring from our LOCAL UL listed Central Station, and more security solutions to give you peace of mind.  

Our goal still resonates today as we provide integrated security solutions, access control, video (CCTV), and fire protection for thousands of commercial, industrial, educational, retail, and residential customers in Southwest Ohio and Northern Kentucky. 

Serving Northern Kentucky and Southwestern Ohio

After the retirement of Rex Shiver, the sole ownership and operation of the company was handed over to his oldest son Chip Shiver. Chip continues today fulfilling his father’s dreams in a second-generation role while establishing the third generation of the Shiver family. In addition, Chip has developed second and third-generation employees.
