        About Us

        Electronic Security Systems Storefront, Tisbury, MA

        Electronic Security Systems began providing security to island businesses and residents in 1972 and now provides service to hundreds of businesses and thousands of homes. Our experienced on-island team is licensed, local, and highly responsive.

        Our goal at ESS is to create long-lasting, trusted relationships with all of our customers, who know they can rely on us to keep their Martha's Vineyard homes or businesses safe. We work with first responders, caretakers and property managers to make sure every emergency is taken care of quickly and thoroughly, and we work diligently to minimize false alarms.

        ESS maintains certified, licensed, "on-island" techs at all times. ESS also specializes in account takeovers. We can service and monitor what other companies have installed. Don't hesitate to call for quality customer service.

        ESS holds the following mandatory Massachusetts State Licenses:

        “The technicians were very polite and cleaned up after the installation was complete.
        The alarm system was exactly what we expected." 
        G.F. Edgartown, MA
        "Our call to ESS was answered by the very knowledgeable office staff.
        All our questions were answered and helped us make a decision to chose this company."
        R. C.  West Tisbury, MA
        "Thank you for completing this installation
        on time and on budget."  
        W. G. Edgartown, MA
        "The installation was completed while we were away.
        We came home to find a professionally installed alarm and the house was as clean as we had left it." 
        R. R. Chilmark, MA
        "Our insurance company required that we install an alarm system. We were resistant and hesitant,
        but are very glad we found ESS."  
        J. N. Oak Bluffs, MA
        "We live on Chappaquiddick, but the service tech was
        right on time and very professional." 
        C. A. Edgartown, MA
        "They priced out exactly what we asked for and the tech spent as much time as we needed to explain how
        our new system worked.
        Thank you for a very quick and neat installation." 
        F.S.  Tisbury, MA
        "46 years and counting, doing work on the island!  
        This company is certainly doing something right.  
        L.L. Edgartown, MA
        "We continually had complaints from guests about internet access
        in some areas of the building. ESS installed WiFi
        for my property this spring, and updated our network.
        Now, we and our customers are very happy with the results."
