Established in 1968, SOS Alarm has been helping to bring safety, security and piece of mind to Oregon residence for nearly half a century. SOS Alarm is a family owned and operated company dedicated to bringing exceptional service to our customers.
Helping protect southern Oregon since 1968
SOS Alarm has been in business and serving Southern Oregon since 1968. At the time when Ray Claborn and his business partners first purchased the company, there were only 168 monitored alarm systems. Today, the company has multiplied to over 10,000 systems. As the business has developed and become successful, Ray’s partners have retired or moved on to other business ventures. Ray and his family have become sole owners of SOS Alarm, and have always focused on how to provide our customers the best products at the lowest possible cost.
SOS Alarm has grown to be the largest security products provider in Southern Oregon. SOS Alarm is the only alarm company in Southern Oregon that is a full service alarm company. This means that our UL Certified Monitoring Station, Accounting, Service, Sales, and Installation Departments are here in our community. We believe it is important to keep jobs and income here in Southern Oregon.
Now that Ray is closer to retirement, his sons, Aaron and Kevin, have become an integral part of the management team. Aaron and Kevin started working for the company when they were thirteen years old crawling in attics and under homes helping pull wire for the technicians. As a parent, Ray is blessed that his sons are not only brothers, but also best friends. This brotherly bond has remained strong, as they have worked closely together in the business.
It is important to recognize that the success of SOS Alarm will be ongoing. Ray’s staff and previous partners have been the foundation that has contributed to the success of the past, as well as in moving forward into the future.
