n 1970 L. H. Harms founded Life & Property Security Systems, Inc., following his retirement from Federal law enforcement. He continued as president of Life & Property Security Systems until 1986 when Harms retired and the company was purchased by John Knox (an employee at the time) and William Tilley.

Knox acquired full ownership of Life & Property Security Systems with Tilley’s passing in 1989.

The company serves a client base of upscale residential, commercial and industrial East Tennesseans. As our company celebrates its 30th anniversary, we are proud to be recognized by our clients and competitors as a highly respected security provider and enjoy an excellent reputation within our industry that is built on quality customer service.

In addition to our offering the top-of-the-line products, Life & Property Security Systems is known for its highly personal, one-on-one service with its customers.  It is this individual attention along with our high quality systems that has made Life & Property Security Systems what it is today.

As new technologies were presented, we’ve embraced them and continue to do so today. We have elected to represent state-of-the-art security systems, fire systems, CCTV, outdoor systems, access control systems, intrusion control systems, lighting control, hi-speed cabling / structured wiring for the homes of the future, and hi-quality custom audio systems.

While other companies utilize telemarketing, Life & Property Security Systems has not employed this marketing strategy. Rather, we’ve elected to continue our mission of providing one-on-one customer service, which is reflected through our customer growth.

Life & Property Security Systems is a highly-respected company that you can trust to provide you with one-stop shopping for your security, fire and high-tech wiring needs.
