Our name embodies the very idea of who and what we are. Simplifying and demystifying home services. We take action, providing products and technology in the way our customers want it. But most importantly, we are a honest and trusted source when they need it.
The ONIT Home story began in 2010 with owner and CEO Curtis Kindred moving to Texas. From a small business in a garage to an office in DFW, there's always been one thing in mind: securing homes and business for people across America.
Before ONIT Home, Curtis Kindred had just finished his second tour in the Army. Following his tour, he moved out of Savannah, GA to the Bay Area, CA, and then to Arizona to start his career following his passion for golfing. While in Arizona, Kindred was offered an opportunity to begin selling home security packages door to door. He knocked on success’ door, kickstarting an opportunity and creating a vision.
Kindred decided to put all of his energy into the home security industry. From door-to-door to managing teams, he focused on families and the community he was in. He followed the company from Arizona to Texas and opened up a new office. Following the recession in 2009, the company eventually went out of business. Instead of applying for new positions, he decided it was time for him to put his passion into his own project: American Defense Systems.
While ONIT Home began as American Defense Systems in 2010, Kindred found an ongoing trend in the home services spaces. He realized that he could further enrich families and businesses through providing more products and services. This vision became the ONIT Home foundation. These moves include adding new verticals to the security company: solar energy, water filtration, insurance, home concierge services, and roofing.
Through these different facets, the focus has always been on the customer. While our story continues to grow, we’re excited to bring in our employees, partners, and customers, and our community on this journey with us.
