About Us

Cunningham Security Systems was established by Paul and Nancy Cunningham in 1983. Their mission was to provide custom designed, high-quality monitored security systems for homes and businesses throughout southern Maine. After more than 20 successful years, the Cunningham’s decided to retire, and Mike and Mary Jean Major purchased the company.

Michael and Mary Jean Major are Maine natives; having grown up living, working, and raising their two boys in the greater Portland area. The couple brings a combined 50 years of customer service and business expertise to the company. And their commitment to provide the best combination of products and customer service, while maintaining affordable pricing for all existing and future customers, has led the company to significant growth — doubling the number of customers in just their first two years operating the business.

Two important elements to Cunningham Security’s success are their commitment to, whenever possible, do business with local businesses and, to give back to the communities it serves through support of local charities and nonprofit organizations. Since 2005, the Majors have successfully built upon the Cunningham’s original philosophy and have continued to improve and innovate; elevating Cunningham Security Systems to the premier local security services provider in Maine.
