Midwest Security and Fire Overview

From big, beautiful retreat security and surveillance installations to very simple residential security system installations, Midwest Security and Fire has you covered. Installing only the best security and surveillance equipment for over 39 years, Midwest knows their products inside and out.

Midwest recently partnered with Baratto Brothers Construction on a Lake Kabekona Retreat north of Walker, MN to provide a secure environment and homeowner peace of mind at this stunning home.

Included in this installation, was a complete professional residential security system with cellular communications, door sensors, motion sensors, smoke detection, water detection, and low temperature detection for the home and greenhouse. The systems are covered by a 3 year warranty. A lot of care is taken during installation to surpass the expectations of a typical system.

The surveillance system features a network video recorder and high definition cameras surrounding the home, garage, guest cabin, and ground. Live and recorded video can be viewed on the premise or remotely using a PC, tablet, or smartphone. Homeowners love the quality of the video and ease of use.

Made in the USA

Custom Security for your Home or Business

A year and a half ago we decided to search out another brand of security system because we were not happy with the direction of our existing line . After an exhaustive search we found our new line and it was right in front of us for the last 30 years. DMP Security Systems is designed, engineered, manufactured, and supported in Springfield, Mo. It is some of the best security equipment I have ever seen in my 20 years in this industry. While DMP is not in Brainerd or Minnesota, it is in the USA and much closer than China or Mexico. It showed me that it is possible for electronics manufacturing to happen in the USA

Security at your Business


Commercial security and surveillance systems


Security Tip of the Week


Report strangers in your office or workplace. Visitors and staff should wear badges. Others you don’t recognize may be thieves who have walked past reception or found an open back door. Politely ask strangers if they need some assistance or report them to Security, Staff or Police.
Thieves are as likely to steal your purse or wallet as they are to take company property, so it is in everyone’s interest to keep our premises safe.
