SAMCO ELECTRONICS was founded in January 2009 to purchase the SecureHEAT Home Monitoring System from ONWATCH Electronics. A New England-based business established in the early 1990s by the late John Bunting, ONWATCH brought SAMCO a large and loyal customer base with over 8,000 SecureHEAT systems installed.
A co-owner of SAMCO was the designer and manufacturer of the original SecureHEAT product line, so that taking SecureHEAT to higher levels of performance, functionality and ease of use will be a natural progression for the company.
Based in Hooksett, New Hampshire SAMCO is a family owned company

Industry Leader Dies
OnWatch Electronics Inc. owner John Bunting, 61, died Sunday, Feb 8, 2009. John passed his last days peacefully at home, after a year-long fight against cancer.
John will be remembered as an innovator and industry leader, having spent the last 20 years owning and leading his company. OnWatch Electronics Inc. was John's answer in the early 90s, to a need for reliable tools that would monitor and record data during heating and cooling equipment operation. A few of the trade names associated with OnWatch are SecureHeat, QuickLook, GasStick and the company's flagship products Model 41 and Model 51 diagnostic recorders.
