Resideo Technologies Donates $100K to Help Fund SIAC Operations
SIAC monitors local and statewide news for mentions of false alarms and new alarm ordinances, and proactively promotes a model alarm ordinance.
FRISCO, Texas — Resideo Technologies (NYSE: REZI), a leading global residential provider of critical comfort and security solutions, and distributor of low-voltage and security products, recently donated $100,000 to help promote the work of the Security Industry Alarm Coalition (SIAC).
The announcement was made at ISC West in Las Vegas.
“SIAC has proven to be an effective advocate for our industry, which is subject to regulations from numerous municipal agencies across the United States,” says Niccolo de Masi, president of products and solutions, and chief innovation officer at Resideo. “At Resideo, we remain committed to the pro channel and our goal is to connect consumers with the do-it-for me professional dealer to help provide a safer home.”
SIAC has helped establish 15 state alarm management committees in association with state associations of chiefs of police. SIAC continues to monitor local and state-wide news for mentions of false alarms and new alarm ordinances, and proactively reaches out to communities to promote the model ordinance.
“By having one voice for our industry, networking with law enforcement leaders and government officials, SIAC has helped develop and implement a model that allows our industry to function effectively,” says Alice DeBiasio, vice president and general manager, residential pro security at Resideo. “Our contribution will support this important work that protects our industry and the customers we serve.”
Consolidation in the security industry has challenged SIAC to achieve the necessary funding for its operations, explains Stan Martin, SIAC executive director.
“Requests for our support by law enforcement agencies continues to increase. We recently received support for the model ordinance from the National Sheriffs’ Association and the International Association of Chiefs of Police,” Martin says.
“SIAC does not sell products or services, we have no membership dues,” Martin continues. “We are a free resource to law enforcement as we strive to keep good and fair ordinances in place, maintain relationships with law enforcement leadership and work to eliminate onerous provisions that can be costly to dealers.”
