Who are we to Installers?

We make researching & installing Urmet products and systems simple, even if it’s your first Urmet install.

The first thing you should know about us is that we don’t have any salespeople. So, we won’t be bugging you with sales calls every week or pushing you for any quoting opportunities. When using Urmet you know we’re putting your project first, and not a sales commission.

Because we don’t have any salespeople, we’ve put all our product and system information online, so you can read, watch & download at your leisure. Gone are the days of asking for datasheets, installation manuals and general product information.

When using Urmet, you have access to all the information you need, when you need it, but without a salesperson pushing you for a sale.


Frequently Asked Questions

Take a look at the answers to some of the questions we frequently get asked by new Installers…

For every new Urmet system, with your equipment, you’ll receive a Site Specific Technical pack made specifically for your project by our Technical team.

This pack includes installation manuals and best practice guide, but it also includes a site-specific connection diagram, which outlines all the connections in your system. This means that even if you’ve never installed Urmet before, you can do so with ease – just follow the diagram!

We operate an online support service – that’s fancy talk for saying you can contact us via email.

However, if you’d like a call from the Urmet Team, we will happily call you.

We just ask that you email us your questions first, so we can get the right member of the Urmet Team to call you back (for example, it’s no use if our Projects team call you if you need technical support on site).

So don’t worry, you can talk to us on the phone, we just ask for a bit of information first.

Yes, you can.

We recommend that you buy your systems direct from us, no matter the system size.

Simply place your order with our Projects team, and we’ll get the stock allocated to you, so it’s ready when you need it. We keep large stock reserves, so there’s no need to worry.

For spare parts & fobs, you can buy them directly from our website, and pay by either BACS or PayPal.

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?

Since establishing 80 years ago, we’re pleased to say that The Urmet Group has only gone from strength to strength, we now have…
