About Us

Welcome to 1st Choice Lock & Security, your number one source for commercial and residential security products and services. We are dedicated to giving you the very best security, with a focus on quality, integrity and customer service.

Founded in 2005 by myself, Brad Smith, 1st Choice Lock & Security has come a long way from its beginnings on the third floor of my home in Beloit WI. When I first started out, my passion for personal service and embracing the entrepreneurial spirit drove me to quit my comfortable job with the State of Wisconsin. Did I mention my wife was pregnant with our fourth child at the time? Yep, I was that sure the industry needed a company like ours. It gave me the momentum to turn hard work and inspiration into an organization that would lead the way in customized security. Yes, you read that correctly, customized. There is no cookie cutter, one size fits all approach to security when you work with us. We meet your needs. No two customers are alike and we believe that you should never be treated like an assembly line product.

We serve customers in Wisconsin & Illinois and are thrilled to be part of the emerging wing of electronic security, while still continuing to provide lock and safe services. We are one of few companies to offer these all under one roof.

We hope you enjoy our products as much as we enjoy providing them to you. Please check out our testimonials page to see what our customers are saying about us. If you have any questions or comments, please do not hesitate to contact us.
