Our Headquarters
Our History

Camera Security Now is headquarted in Middletown, Ohio five minutes off of I-75. We have over 20 years experience in the surveillance and security camera industry. In 1998, Camera Security Now opened as the security and surveillance branch of CFR Inc., handling all of the surveillance needs of the company. Soon after, we were working with businesses, municipalities, schools and members of the local community, helping them secure their facilities with quality security camera systems. After several years we have developed a wide network of installers and technicians throughout the country and now offer our services nationwide.

What Customers Are Saying

"I was very happy with the service, information and pricing Randy gave me. I made an order and had my cameras within 5 days. After receiving the cameras, I was able to call Randy for help and questions I had when we installed. The quality and picture of the cameras is great, just like Randy said it would be. I highly recommend Randy Lewis and Camera Security Now for all your security and camera needs." -Charina D.

"I highly recommend Camera Security Now and Randy Lewis. Camera Security Now recently completed work at our funeral home. I found Randy’s entire team to be very professional, courteous, and especially helpful. When I needed to add a camera to the system that was quoted, Randy and his team were very accommodating and reasonable. It was a pleasure doing business with Camera Security Now." - Jeffrey B.

"We have been doing business with Camera Security now for almost 5 years. Camera Security now has installed several Camera security DVR systems for us in several of our locations locally and in Phoenix, AZ. Randy’s team also has done several network cabling projects as well as installed network IDF cabinets. Camera Security now is our preference for video security, networking, and helping us with various projects. I would highly recommend them." -John O.

"Our county was building a new sheriff's office and jail and we were in need of a low-cost, but high quality surveillance system for both interior and exterior monitoring. We also had specific needs, such as the ability to record audio and the ability to conveniently burn recordings of interviews. Randy was very knowledgeable and helpful in assisting me with choosing the right cameras. He went out of his way to work with me on the pricing and payment options. And when our first DVR wasn't quite meeting our expectations, Randy offered me a few solutions to the problem and gave us credit for our existing DVR toward the purchase of an upgrade. Randy was always easy to get in touch with by email to telephone and was always quick to help me with any technical question I had." - William H.
