A company home-grown in Miami-Dade County by an expert in security is expanding to reach a broadened base of residential, business, and industrial clients. Whether it is a home video surveillance monitored on a Smartphone, an integrated system to protect multi-million-dollar inventories of high-end car dealerships, or controlled access into the Trump properties in Sunny Isles, Steven Schwartz’s Paradyme has done it all. Such systems now protect the CNN /Turner Broadcasting; The Trump Grande Ocean Residences and Resort in Sunny Isles; the three buildings comprising Miami-Dade County’s Public Defenders offices; and a number of premiere condominium and apartment residences, including downtown’s One Miami and Pinnacle Housing Groups’ many properties.
The company’s innovation created a customized surveillance network system with two-way voice, remote video monitoring, and perimeter intrusion detection for a Lexus dealer’s multi-million dollar inventory of 250 exposed cars. The inventory was protected when a burglarizing pair entered the premises and tripped the perimeter detection system that resulted in immediate police response. This quick response from the police helped capture the suspects and limited damages.
Another innovative system was created for Trump Royale in Sunny Isles. At the request of the owner, Schwartz invented a wireless early warning life safety system that was approved and tested rigorously by the Miami-Dade County Fire Department. The result saved the owner hundreds of thousands of dollars and enabled the general contractor to deliver the building on time and within budget.
The company’s reach became international when Schwartz was asked to install perimeter fortification, personal duress, and intrusion systems for the National Palace of Haiti before the recent earthquake disaster.
A diverse list of clientele is only one reason that Paradyme has become a leader in the design of low voltage intrusion, video surveillance, and biometric and fob access control systems. Paradyme also utilizes the most trusted brands in the industry, such as Schlage, Honeywell, DSX, Keyscan, and Milestone.
Schwartz honed his security skills while in the U. S. Navy until his retirement as a senior chief petty officer. While enlisted, he conducted port security assessments and surveys. His growing expertise in security led him to start-up his own company in 2001, where he first targeted small businesses, commercial firms, and a variety of installations for homeowners.
After more than a decade, Global Security Products evolved into Paradyme to better reflect the company’s abilities. “We wanted to differentiate ourselves from other similarly named businesses in the area. In addition, Global Security Products made us sound like a distributer of products rather than a professional integration company,” commented the 47-year-old entrepreneurial president of the company. Schwartz has brought his business to its current position as a leader in the design, installation, and maintenance of security systems and networks. Today, Paradyme’s major focus is applying the mix of fast-advancing technology that customizes a client’s security needs, no matter how big or small.
“People who have older systems in their homes may not realize how advances in technology have changed monitoring to increase protective service as well as remotely viewing and managing the homes systems such as cameras, central air conditioning system, and lighting, all from a Smartphone or computer . It’s one reason why we are seeking both homeowners and commercial business owners in the southwest area who want to update an antiquated system,” explained Schwartz, from his two-story office and warehousing center just off SW 117 Ave., south of SW 152 St.
Paradyme prides itself on organized and professional installations. Once an installation is complete, clients are provided with system documentation that includes equipment listings, warranty information, technical drawings, camera positions, wire labels, and more. “Because every installation is only as good as the team doing the work, we do all installation labor on our own – not through unknown subcontractors or outside installers. We make a personal commitment to take the time to do the right thing by our clients, from design and installation to service and support,” Schwartz emphasized.
Schwartz is a CPP (Certified Protective Professional) and member of the American Society for Industrial Security. He is also active in the local community and currently serves as a Board Member of the Zoological Society of Florida, a non-profit organization in support of ZooMiami of Miami-Dade County.
