Why us?

We are locally and independently owned – this means all revenue gets recycled back into OUR local economy.  As an Independent ADT Authorized Dealer, we’re able to offer all the newest, future-compatible ADT App-Controlled Smart devices with the very best 24/7 monitoring available, and without the crippling overhead of huge corporations.  This means HUGE savings to you.  Our Security Systems are designed to seamlessly integrate with all our Home Automation devices and HD Wi-Fi Cameras that will provide you and your family with the safety, security and convenience they deserve – especially during long hours away from home.

Who are we?

American Family Security was founded by former Phoenix Police Officer, Combat-Disabled Veteran (Bomb Tech/EOD), Husband & Father, Pete Hemerlein. Having operated in Iraq, Afghanistan & surrounding nations over multiple tours of combat, totaling almost 6 years deployed with the US Army and as a Military Contractor, Peter has lived a life of service to country and community.  In 2017, Pete sustained injury when his driver rolled his armored SUV during ambush while operating in ISIS-held Mosul (Iraq).  Pete was then sent home for emergency surgery and decided it’s time to build a life and family at home with the Phoenix Police Dept.  In 2021, Peter resigned for family reason (honorably) and found a different way to serve.  At American Family Security, we are honored for the trust you’ve placed in us to give you & your family the protection they deserve.

IN ADDITION to the near zero-profit deals we only offer PHX Police & PLEA Members, we pledge an irrevocable donation of $100 to PLEA Charities for every new residential monitoring system installed & activated by PLEA Members AND 5% of total company profits annually.

You can’t put a price on the safety and lives of your family – help us donate more and let us hook you up.  We got your 6.
