About Brinks Home Security

The Brinks Company is an American private security and protection company headquartered outside Richmond, Virginia. Its core business is Brinks Inc.; its sister brand Brinks Home Security Company operates separately and is headquartered in Dallas, Texas. In 2013, its international network served customers in more than 100 countries and employed approximately 134,000 people. Operations include approximately 1,100 facilities and 13,300 vehicles. The company emerged from the Pittston Company and changed its name to the Brinks Company in 2003. Brinks is popularly known for its bullet-resistant armored trucks which carry money and valuable goods (the service once used to transport the Hope Diamond from an auction to the buyer’s home). Brinks is a provider of security services to banks, retailers, governments, mints, and jewelers. Founded in 1859 by Perry Brink of Chicago, Illinois, Brinks’s business evolved from local armored transportation services to providing corporate financial logistics and international secure transportation. In 1962, Brinks was acquired by Pittston, a coal company. Burlington Air Express was acquired in 1982. Brinks Home Security was started in 1983. Pittston sold off its coal assets in the 2000s and renamed the company, Brinks. The home security unit was also spun off. A significant portion of Brinks’s business is conducted internationally, with 82% of $3.9 billion in revenues earned outside the United States in 2013. The majority of Brinks’s consolidated revenues in 2013 were earned in operations located in nine countries, each contributing more than $100 million of revenues. The 2013 revenues from these countries totaled $3.0 billion or 79% of consolidated revenues. These operations, in declining order of revenues, were the U.S., France, Mexico, Brazil, Venezuela, Canada, Colombia, Argentina, and the Netherlands. In January 2012, Brinks acquired Kheops, SAS, a provider of logistics software and related services in France, for approximately $17 million. This acquisition gave the company proprietary control of software used primarily in cash-in-transit and money-processing operations in France. On January 31, 2013, Brinks acquired Brazil-based Rede Transacoes Electronics Ltda. (“Redetrel”) for approximately $26 million. Redetrel distributes electronic prepaid products, including mobile phone airtime, via a network of approximately 20,000 retail locations across Brazil. Redetrel’s strong distribution network supplements Brinks existing payments business, ePago, which has operations in Brazil, Mexico, Colombia, and Panama. Brinks sold one of its core operations, BAX Global, a shipping company for U.S. $1.1 billion to Deutsche Bahn on January 31, 2006. BAX Global used to be known as Burlington Air Express. Brinks had a business line in home security named Brinks Home Security which accounted for 15% of Brinks revenue in 2008; it decided that year to spin the business off into a separate publicly traded company to focus on its other businesses. The company rebranded as Broadview in 2009 with a massive advertising campaign. Broadview was acquired and merged into The ADT Corporation in 2010. In 2018, Brinks re-entered the business through a trademark licensing deal, re-creating the Brinks Home Security brand. Brinks Home Security offers 3 plans. They are Smart Security Essential, Smart Security Complete, and Smart Security Ultimate. The Smart Security Essential Plan has an equipment cost of $199 and a monthly plan cost of $39. The Brinks Smart Security Essential package is your basic DIY home security kit, with just enough features for the non-techies out there. This package includes a Brinks Home Hub touchscreen control panel, a wireless motion sensor, two wireless door sensors, and a yard sign. The Smart Security Complete Plan has an equipment cost of $349 and a monthly plan cost of $39. You can finance the equipment on the Smart Security Complete Plan making the total monthly payment for the equipment and monthly plan fee of $52.86 per month for 36 months. The Brinks Smart Security Complete package includes everything in the Smart Security Essential bundle, plus an indoor camera with night vision, as well as an extra entryway sensor and a motion detector. As with the Smart Security Essential system, this package offers on-the-go access through the mobile app. The Smart Security Ultimate plan has an equipment cost of $1,099 and a monthly plan cost of $39. You can finance the equipment on the Smart Security Ultimate plan making the total monthly payment for the equipment and monthly plan fee of $69.53 per month for 36 months. The Brinks Smart Security Ultimate package includes everything in the lower-tier options, except for the indoor camera. Instead, this package contains a SkyBell video doorbell camera ($199 value), an outdoor camera ($249 value), and free professional installation. Another attractive aspect of Brinks Home Security is that their packages are completely customizable with add-ons from high-quality brands like GE and Qolsys. Brinks equipment costs are quite reasonable, especially for the SkyBell Slim Line Video Doorbell ($199) and the wireless door and window sensors ($29).
