the mid-1980's, Freedom Security Systems began
as JESS Security Systems in Los Angeles, CA. Founder James L. Eaton, at
the time an alarm service tech/manager at a respected West L.A. security
company, was also a struggling musician/songwriter.
Deciding to take advantage of the entertainment business contacts he had accumulated
over the years, James began his own alarm business by protecting the homes of
famous actors, singers, and songwriters including members of rock band Fleetwood
In 1990, James expanded to North San Diego County as he and wife, Janel, pursued
a better quality of life away from the melting pot of L.A.

was a sub-contractor for the bigger security companies in San Diego. This provided
James and crew with a vast knowledge of different equipment, installation techniques,
and what NOT to do in the security alarm industry.
In 1998, JESS Security changed its name to Freedom Security Systems and
in 2002, incorporated (Suburban Legend, Inc.)
After years of using different alarm equipment brands, James and company have
been very happy with the GE-Security line of Control
devices, and structured
So much so, that in 2003, Suburban Legend, Inc. DBA Freedom Security became a GE-Security
