Advantage Protection Adapting to Growing Demand for Mobile-Centric Security

The Vancouver, Wash.-based company has hired more staff who specialize in smartphone technology.

VANCOUVER, Wash. — It’s no secret that security is becoming increasingly mobile. Today, it’s no longer acceptable to monitor the security of one’s home or business while on the scene; remote control is a critical convenience for security companies to offer customers.

Advantage Protection, based here, is allocating the necessary resources to keep up with the smartphone technology, hiring an increasing number of staff who specialize in this area, as detailed in a Vancouver Business Journal report.

“Our industry as a whole has been forced to come up to speed rather quickly as the cellphone industry began to change,” said Jaime Reel, director of sales at Advantage Protection. “It has been the driving factor behind many of our changes.”

There’s an increasing demand for customers to control their security systems on the go, whether at work, running errands or on vacation. Security systems for homes and businesses can also control the thermostat, lighting and opening and closing of entrances, giving customers the control they crave.

“All of that can be done while you’re gone,” Reel said. “It’s really convenient.”
