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

The year we were founded, in Turin, Italy! The name ‘Urmet’ stands for the ‘Utilization and Recovery of Electro-Telephone Material’ – catchy right?

1949

We started producing the first Battery Charging Alternator (BCA) ‘Urmet Telephones’.

1958

We moved into the intercom market, by producing our very first handsets, or ‘domestic telephones’ as we called them then.

1965

We produced the first video intercom! Encased in a plastic-coated wooden cabinet, it certainly fit the aesthetic of the 60s…

1996

We were a major player in the worldwide intercom market, and dediced to rebrand the intercom division of our business to ‘Urmet Domus’.

Today

We’re now known as just ‘Urmet’, which is a parent company that consists of over 60 group companies operating across 100 countries, & turning over nearly $500 million annually!

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?
