About Us

What we offer the community:

img_2Industry Professionals:

In the State of New Jersey, contractor licensing for fire alarm systems started in June of 2003 through the Department of Community Affairs in Trenton. In March of 2004, contractor licensing for burglar alarms and all other security systems, including fire alarms, became mandatory through the Department of Consumer Affairs in Newark. NJESA has been a driving force in providing information and training to our members to ultimately protect the consumer. NJESA always promotes hiring a licensed contractor.

Our members must adhere to a strong Code of Ethics, which underscores the importance of our high standards.
