Established in 1985 by Christopher Yacino, Eaglestar provided security, access control, video and fire alarm services for 950 homes and businesses primarily in central Massachusetts.

Yacino and all of Eaglestar’s employees will remain with the company and join the team at American Alarm’s full-service central Massachusetts branch in Auburn.

Louis Sampson, chief operating officer and co-owner of American Alarm, said in a statement: “Security and life-safety services are technology intensive, yet they still require an experienced professional team to work with customers and make sure their specific needs are met. That’s our approach, to be the strong local company that stays close to our customers, with sufficient scale to deliver excellent and timely service. Chris and the Eaglestar staff will be great additions to our team.”
