Fantastic 4 Enter SSI’s Hall of Fame

An entrepreneur who splits time running a leading third-party central monitoring station and trade association work. A shrewd executive who helped the industry’s largest independent supplier join one of the world’s leading brands. A wunderkind who grew up in the industry and resurrected one of the nation’s best-known alarm companies. A globe-trekking developer/marketer of motion sensors who introduced dual-technology devices to America. From all walks of the electronic security industry, each has carved out a unique, indelible legacy.

Central Station Alarm Corp.; Roger Fradin, president/CEO for Honeywell Automation and Control Solutions (ACS); Richard Ginsburg, president/CEO of Protection One; and Larry Tracy, president/CEO of Aleph America Corp.
