BellSouth, Protection One Expand Security Services Relationship
ATLANTA and LAWRENCE, Kan.
BellSouth and Protection One Inc. announce an agreement to deliver security services to planned residential communities in the BellSouth region.
The joint sales and marketing arrangement is an expansion of the existing relationship between BellSouth and Protection One formed in 2001 to market security systems to residents and business owners in the southeastern United States. BellSouth Security Systems from Protection One currently provides intrusion, heat, smoke and carbon monoxide detection equipment and related services to customers in 18 cities.
“Security is a critical element in new and existing communities, and BellSouth can now deliver a package of voice, video, data and security that is attractive to developers and residents,” says Phil Jacobs, president, BellSouth Community Technologies. “BellSouth continues to pursue relationships with industry leaders to develop broad solutions that meet the needs of its customers.”
BellSouth Community Technologies is BellSouth’s most recently formed business unit, established last year. The new organization focuses on alliances with developers and owners of single family planned communities, apartments, and condos to develop technology deployment plans and to promote and offer one-stop shopping for BellSouth’s full range of communications and entertainment services. This agreement provides for the inclusion of BellSouth Security Systems from Protection One in BellSouth’s portfolio of services designed for planned communities.
