(L to R) Eddie Weaver with his wife, Marie, and granddaughter, Kaley Kneece
Eddie Weaver could never have imagined the impact that being a victim of theft in the 80s would have on his life. “I was very frustrated with the security system that I was using when my truck was broken into. The service was just terrible, so I decided to start doing it for myself and for others. A security system has to fit the people, not just a building.” This sentiment has been the driving force behind Weaver Systems for more than 20 years.
As a Columbia native, Eddie knows how to meet the community’s needs. “Most people know what they want, but they don’t know what they need to get there,” he explains. “Our premise is this — no two homes or families are alike. We provide custom alarms designed for each home. Our goal is to be sure that no one can enter your home undetected and disturb your peace of mind and safety.”
To ensure that this promise is kept, Eddie often attends national conferences, where cutting edge technology is presented that is not usually available to consumers for at least two years. “It is imperative for us to stay forward thinking and on the cutting edge so that our customers can make wise buying options. If we know that something better is around the corner and that what they are interested in will soon be obsolete, we can offer options to make sure they are making the wisest choice.”
Weaver Systems does much more than just security and alarm installation. They also offer full service electrical work as well as the installation of just about any technology with wires … or without.
Eddie explains, “My job is to make operating all of the entertainment systems in a home effortless with just one button. People don’t just want automation but also instant gratification. They want a simple response to what they need, not something so complicated that it takes a graduate degree to operate. We also customize the look of technology for individual houses … some people want the more edgy-techno look, while others want to keep their home looking traditional.”
