LIMA — John Yohe, owner of Security Unlimited Professionals, has dedicated his life to providing families and businesses in Lima-region with a sense of security.
Yohe got started in the security surveillance business in 1995 as a subcontractor for a local surveillance company.
In 2008, he and wife opened Security Unlimited Professionals, a family-owned and operated commercial and residential security surveillance company.
“We basically started with nothing, except my tools and my knowledge,” said Yohe, who is also pastor of Pilgrim LightHouse Church, 405 E. Kibby St.
To build his clientele he began marketing by going door door and giving quotes. One of his first clients was O’Reilly Auto Parts, and he has since installed over 500 security cameras, security and fire alarms for the company.
He has also installed cameras for restaurants, banks, churches, apartments, homes, schools, hotels and more. He provides local services as well as around the nation.
He said his company takes pride in caring for families, values aesthetics and the quality of the equipment, provides life safety, builds affordable packages, services products from other providers, has no long-term contracts and the employees become friends with their clients and know them on a first-name basis.
“We treat others as we want to be treated and have no problem doing the extra mile,” said Yohe.
The basic package includes surveillance for three doors, a key pad, control panel, motion detectors and smoke detectors. Most of the packages include remote access that allows customers to view camera surveillance from their mobile devices, lock and unlock the doors and control their thermostats.
“As a man of faith I believe that God is the best salesperson and I pray each time that he gives us favor to the people we give quotes to, which is so important to me,” said Yohe. “Through my business I am able to give people the peace of mind by installing security surveillance systems in this life and I also offer the peace of mind the eternal life.”
