In July of 1994, We began to expand our home office into a newly renovated central station. In addition to this expansion, we also installed service computers to fulfill customer needs right from our central station, which include: handling activity reports, testing alarm systems, tracking equipment problems and all other customer needs at no additional charge.
In January of 1996, Countryside expanded again to dual-monitoring of alarm systems. Vermont is subject to numerous area phone outages, which can prevent or delay the routing of long distance calls. Our dual monitoring central station enables us to monitor around phone problems. You, the customer, benefit from the personalized service on the other end of our upgraded technology.

In November of 1999, the expansion of Countryside’s home office was completed. This newly renovated office was home to Countryside’s very own central station. This made Countryside the ONLY alarm company in the area to have an actual alarm monitoring service that was staffed and operated by the installing company, which means Countryside installs your system, services your equipment and watches over your property.
In 2008, Countryside began offering video monitoring. This system is affordable, compact and sends images instantly to our monitoring center to inform us of intruders, fires and even false alarms. This system is ideal for people who want protection but do not want to pay yearly fees for law enforcement to come to the property during an emergency. This system will help you identify the burglar instantly through redeemable images, where as the police may not get to your premise until after the burglar has left. It’s an easy way to keep an eye on your property twenty-four hours a day and seven days a week. This system is also ideal for builders and contractors who are required to have an alarm system, but do not have an enclosed space. Video monitoring can be set up to watch open workspaces, doors, windows, hallways or any space desired.
