The company known today for detecting burglars had its roots in pest control of a different sort in the late 1950s. Robert Baxter, of Anderson, Indiana, installed microphones within the walls of a building to listen for termites and pinpoint their location. Baxter invented other sound-related devices, too. On June 16, 1960, he incorporated “Sonitrol”, from the words sound and control, to manufacture and market his innovations.
