Michael Houser is more than just your typical Southern Californian surf cat that loves sunsets, watercraft, pinball machines and wine tasting. He also quite possibly is the best unconventional security dealer in all of the OC. It all started with his dad’s electrical company and his aggressive “think out of the box” belief that led to the famous hurling of a home alarm panel into the 65 mile-per-hour club off the 405 freeway in 1987. That day the alarm panel did not survive the initiation but Michael’s enthusiasm for not settling for cheap Wal-Mart type securitysystemswas born.
Michael became a licensed alarm company operator in 1989 and Electronic Eye Security Inc. opened his door for business out of an apartment in Laguna Niguel. Michael’s inspiration for the name was taken from a song by the rock band Judas Priest. Young Houser’s first monitored client was a famous Hollywood movie producer with an 11,000 square foot home. The challenge was to provide a wired security solution for a house with over 85 windows and doors. Houser finished the project in 7 days proving his installation capabilities, technical savvy and work ethic. This philosophy carried right over to excellence in service and providing discrete private installations for celebrities and affluent personalities of Southern California who needed real security solutions.
Today in the OC Michael is referred to as “The Security Genius” and backs up those claims by constantly educating himself and his team on providing cutting edge security solutions that are battle proven and effective. This approach to protection is perfect for Electronic Eye Security’s clients who are security-sensitive, including hospitals, restaurants, police stations, city water districts and affluent homeowners throughout the southland.
Michael dreams of creating a new security system designed to protect kids with autism and the elderly with dementia from wandering away from their home. Michael has made it his passion to help by donating a percentage of each system sold to our local Autism foundation. When Michael is not talking security you can find him in his arcade with wall to wall pinball machines or outside kayaking around all the beautiful bays of So Cali with his gorgeous wife and business partner.
