Value proposition: Monitoring services include security, fire, CO2, elevator, PERS, mPERS, video, industrial, critical process and environmental via dial-up, radio, cellular, IP and custom signaling through API. Equalizer Program allows dealers to purchase equipment with no money down and pay for it over time in their monitoring bill, improving cash flow and helping dealers compete with those offering “free” alarm systems. Other pluses include continuity with founder still being president; the largest redundant network of monitoring stations (six); more TMA Five Diamond monitoring centers than any other company; and building a dedicated mPERS monitoring station inside headquarters and another site TBA.
