Canada-based Blue Shield Security Inc. has joined the Honeywell First Alert Professional Dealer Program. The St. John’s, Newfoundland-based dealer serves the provinces of Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Newfoundland, and customizes alarm systems, surveillance cameras, access control and A/V services for commercial and residential customers.
Blue Shield also partners with Reliance Protectron, one of only two monitoring stations in Canada with Five Diamond Certification from the Central Station Alarm Association (CSAA). Through this partnership, Blue Shield monitors home and business systems and provides customers critical information to ensure they are aware of who is arming and disarming their security systems.
“In addition to our alarm monitoring partnership with Reliance, working with a recognized industry leader such as Honeywell will help to enhance our products and services and gain insight into the latest security technologies,” says Dean Hickey, president of Blue Shield Security.
With approximately 600 dealer locations in North America, the First Alert Professional Dealer Program provides customized support in sales techniques and marketing strategies for intrusion, fire, CCTV and access control systems in commercial and residential facilities. The program is designed for dealers with expertise in intrusion and fire, video surveillance and access control.
“Designing and installing customized security systems present constant challenges for dealers and integrators due to varying customer needs and changing technology,” says Joe Sausa, First Alert Professional president. “Whether customers are large businesses or homeowners, Blue Shield’s innovation and commitment to service shows they understand technology and the best ways to ensure all customers are thoroughly protected.”
