LOUD Security Acquires Vytis Security, Appoints Sandes VP of Commercial Services

Sandes left Ackerman Security after 18 years in 2021 after ADT acquired the company, then later started Vytis Security.

KENNESAW, Ga. –  Cobb County-based security company LOUD Security Systems Inc., recently acquired Atlanta-based commercial security business Vytis Security Systems, a move that “will help solidify LOUD Security as a leading commercial security provider,” according to the announcement.

Like LOUD Security, Vytis “provides security solutions to business challenges through video surveillance, access control, fire systems and monitored security,” the joint announcement says. The company “services all levels of security needs, from small to large and multi-location businesses,” according to the announcement.

As part of the acquisition, LOUD, the 2023 SSI Installer of the Year, also appointed Vytis CEO Mike Sandes to vice president of commercial services. He has more than 30 years of leadership in the security industry, including 18 as president of commercial sales at Ackerman Security.

Sandes left Ackerman in 2021 after the Norcross-based company sold its assets to ADT.

In October of the following year, Sandes established Vytis Security, a company “with a focus on providing exceptional custom technology solutions to businesses throughout metro Atlanta,” according to the joint announcement.

“Bringing our clients to LOUD was an easy choice,” says Sandes in the joint announcement. “The company and its president share a similar vision for offering real business security solutions that align with today’s changing technologies and outstanding customer service.

“I couldn’t be more proud and excited to be a part of the team at LOUD,” he says.

Why LOUD Security Acquired Vytis Security

“We are thrilled to have Mike join the team at LOUD Security,” says John Loud, president of LOUD Security, in the joint announcement. “He is an industry veteran who is well-known for having a keen sense for tackling the unique and changing landscape of today’s commercial security challenges.

“If ever there was a right time for understanding, growing and providing for the commercial side of electronic security and video solutions, its right now. With Mike Sandes at the commercial helm, we are poised to continue to be the leading commercial security provider in our market,” he says.

With the addition of these new clients, LOUD Security Systems, Inc., now serves more than 11,000 customers across the Atlanta area.
