About us


vig•i•lan•t. adj. carefully observant or attentive; on the lookout for possible danger; open-eyed awareness

The Vigilant brand of alarms has been around since the 1960's, when a rudimentary form of a Vigilant branded home burglar alarm was imported by the Woolworth corporation.  The 1960's devices required you to attach a string to your door, and if someone opened the door it pulled the string which in turn pulled the pin.  Our offices in Minneapolis are adorned with a museum of these early devices as a reminder of not only the heritage of the brand (since 1968!) but of the fact that vigilance and personal security is timeless and universal.  Click here to check out a preserved, vintage copy of Woolworth's advertisement of a Vigilant burglar alarm from 1968.

Fast forward to the 21st century.  Vigilant Personal Protection Systems are the #1 best selling personal alarms in the United States.   A percentage of the sale of each unit is donated by VigilantPPS to a variety of charitable foundations including missing children's funds and non-profit personal safety organizations nationwide.  We also have proudly shipped VigilantPPS alarms to multiple divisions of the United States military serving both domestically and abroad.
