Since its founding in 1982, AlarmWorksNW has had the privilege of providing business and home security systems in Tacoma, Olympia, Gig Harbor, and surrounding Western Washington cities. We believe the key to our success has been our personalized service; we have been offering commercial and residential alarm systems that meet the specific needs of each individual client. Unlike larger corporations that have a one-size-fits-all mentality for their clients, we make sure to tailor our security systems to fit the needs of each and every customer. This is not just good business sense; it’s because we care about our community and our neighbors. We want our clients to feel safe and we want our clients to consider us their friends. One of our foundational beliefs is that every client, regardless of the type or size of building, deserves to receive the same excellent information, pricing, products, customer service, and monitoring. Whether you own a small single-family residence or a chain of large commercial properties, AWNW will approach your job with the same type of personalized care that only an experienced local company can provide.

If you need help, you won’t be routed to an offsite call center like larger companies do. We will gladly use our expertise to answer any questions you may have about the security systems we install. We are available to talk through different security solutions with you, and to help problem-solve any technical issues that arise, both in-person or over the phone. For over 20 years, founder Dave Brown was the sole owner and operator of Alarm Works NW. When you called, he answered. That was the key to the company’s success. Now, the father-son team of Dave and Matt Brown own and operate the company together. Since 2007, Matt has been working side-by-side with Dave learning the trade, but more importantly internalizing the same core values of hard work and community-centered business practice. As Dave's successor, Matt has been enhancing the company to complement the changing needs of the community and advancements in technology. What hasn’t changed is our accessibility. When you call us, Matt answers.

Home: About the Company


Matt is the current President of Tacoma Narrows Rotary, of which he has been a member since 2012. He abides by Rotary’s Four-Way Test:
1.Is it the truth?
2.Is it fair to all concerned?
3.Will it build goodwill and better friendships?
4.Will it be beneficial to all concerned?
Matt’s belief in the four-way test carries over into his business practice as well as his personal life. He is committed to being honest when recommending products to our customers, being fair when it comes to estimates and pricing, and is focused on building long-term mutually beneficial relationships with our customers.
AlarmWorksNW also works closely with local law enforcement, city officials, and community organizers to help make our streets and neighborhoods safer and to keep our community better informed. We currently provide burglar alarms, fire alarms, alarm monitoring, and security cameras for several local city buildings, parks, and police stations. Matt and his wife are also active members of Fircrest’s National Night Out Against Crime committee. This is a national annual event to promote police-community camaraderie, which in turn creates safer, happier neighborhoods.
