Broadview Security, formerly Brink's Home Security, was an American provider of home security services that was headquartered in Irving, Texas. The company had over 1.3 million customers in the U.S. and Canada. It was spun off from The Brink's Company in 2008. Broadview Security has since been acquired by Tyco International and has merged with ADT Security Services. Broadview Security was first established in 1983 as Brink's Home Security, a subsidiary of The Brink's Company. The Brink's Company in all its forms has existed since 1859. Brink's Inc., Broadview's former sister company, is known for its armored trucks. In 2008, the spin-off of Brink's Home Security Holdings, Inc. as a stand-alone publicly-traded company was official. The company began trading on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) under the symbol "CFL." As a condition of the spin-off, the company was required to change its brand, and in 2009, launched the new brand, Broadview Security.
