About SSI

Security Systems International – the leading residential and commercial security provider in The Bahamas. Excellence in customer care is critical to our mission.


Security Systems International is a Bahamian company founded in 1987, under managing partner, Craig Cates.

In 1990, Security Systems International became an independent company and Mr. Cates who became, and still is, managing Director and President purchased the controlling shares. The primary business of Security Systems International is the installation of both residential and commercial alarm systems as well as access control systems, CCTV systems, and fire systems.

The company has ten factory-trained technicians. Each team of technicians has its own company vehicle and are both cellular and radio dispatched. All senior technicians are on 24-hour call. We have a complement of 14 office staff. We also have our own 24-hour Central Station with state-of-the-art monitoring and communications equipment. We presently service and monitor over six thousand (6,000) accounts that include local and international companies.
