Red Hawk Fire & Security, Affiliated Monitoring Strike Strategic Alliance

Affiliated Monitoring will manage central station monitoring for Red Hawk customers.

BOCA RATON, Fla. – Systems integrator Red Hawk Fire & Security, based here, has strategically aligned with Affiliated Monitoring to manage central station monitoring for its commercial client accounts.

Red Hawk’s existing CSAA Five Diamond-certified, UL-Listed central station in Houston will continue to operate, retaining all current employees and becoming an addition to Affiliated Monitoring’s network of interconnected customer monitoring centers in New Jersey and New York.

The move is consistent with a trend in the industry for large, forward-thinking integrators to remain on the cutting edge of evolving technology by aligning with third-party experts for monitoring features and services, according Red Hawk President and CEO Mike McWilliams.

“The decision to select a strategic partner for the monitoring of our commercial client accounts sharpens Red Hawk’s focus on our core business of selling and servicing the most innovative technologies available for our fire, security, nurse call and banking customers,” McWilliams says.

Founded in 1977, Union, N.J.-based Affiliated Monitoring offers one of the most sophisticated and broadest set of enhanced products and monitoring services to deliver the highest quality monitoring services to customers, according to the company. 

“Affiliated is well-equipped to accommodate the sophisticated requirements of Red Hawk’s clients and the need for innovative monitoring services that can support Red Hawk as it expands its customer base,” says Affiliated Vice President Daniel Oppenheim. “With our singular focus on monitoring services, technology and training, we can deliver incredible value today and well into the future.”

The transition is expected to take between 60 and 90 days and will begin immediately.
