About Us

What started out as Bellingham Lock & Safe in 1904 became Security Solutions a century later in 2004. The name change reflects the expanded services Jim Vos brought to the business after he took over in 1971.

Vos oversaw the business’ growth from a basic locksmith shop to a diversified safety and security business, reflected in the name Security Solutions. The company has evolved to offer a full complement of products and services including:

  • image description fire suppression equipment and systems
  • image description fire and security alarms
  • image description access control
  • image description surveillance systems and more.

Jim's sons, Jamie and Tobey, joined the business in the mid-90s – together, the Vos family has continued the tradition of providing excellent products and services to the residents and businesses of Whatcom and surrounding counties. Security Solutions is committed to improving the safety and security of Northwest Washington with solutions based on experience, expertise and the most advanced and effective technology available.

With more than a century of locksmith, life safety and security experience, you can trust your home or business to Security Solutions.
