"The Urmet estimating team are the most efficient in the industry. Quotations are always accurate and returned super fast. Really happy with how simple & quick IPassan was to install and program."
Mark Bostick
Sovereign Fire And Security
"You can not speak directly to sales or support so I was expecting difficulties and delays in obtaining a replacement but that was not the case. I emailed with my basic query and received an almost instant reply explaining how to order. I placed the order just after 7pm, the item was dispatched the following day and I had it in my hand the day after. This was excellent service and much appreciated by my customer who had been told by another company it could take 2 weeks. The item was very easy to replace and the original had only failed due to water ingress as the original company had not sealed the top of the panel that is mounted in an exposed position.
Well done."

A Bit of History…

Urmet have been in the security & communications industry for over 80 years, and along the way we’ve not only built an internationally recognised brand, but we’ve also produced some ‘World Firsts’ too…

1937

Urmet were founded in Turin, Italy in 1937. The name ‘Urmet’ stood for ‘Utilization and Recovery of Electro-Telephone Material’ – catchy right?

1946

9 years later, in 1946, Urmet developed the first ‘Urmet telephone’.

1958

12 years after this, in 1958, Urmet moved into the intercom market, and subsequently began developing a new set of products

1965

In 1965, Urmet produced the World’s First (!!!) video door entry system.

1996

After a few more product developments in the 1980’s (such as prepaid telephone cards & automatic telephone alarms), in 1996, Urmet rebrands to ‘Urmet Domus’.

1999

In 1999, the UK subsidiary of Urmet Domus (that’s us) was established.

Along the way we rebranded and dropped the ‘Domus’, brought out countless new products & systems to push the boundaries of what’s technologically possible, acquired other security and smart home manufacturers and recently, celebrated our 80th Anniversary.

So, where is Urmet now?
