There are many ways security companies benefit their customers. The goal is always protection of homes, businesses, people and property, while offering key products and services sought by customers. Each company seeks to distinguish itself.
ADT, a key long-term supporter of SIAC and our programs, is the largest provider of home security services in North America. Beyond their experience, ADT sets itself apart by offering special tips to customers on its Web site (http://www.adt.com/resources/safety-tips) to help homeowners stay safe both inside and outside their homes. Small tips add up to greater protection.
As we’ve grown our alarm management game, we too see that small steps often lead to incremental, long-term improvements. We’ve learned from ADT’s example in sharing this type of information that electronic security companies must take that first step to improve their alarm management practices, then build on it.
ADT’s offerings of advice are different than ours. They include tips on: home security; digital security; deceptive sales safety; senior safety; car safety; pet owner; and back to school. As you can see, the tips are not “just” about selling systems. It’s about providing useful information to current and prospective customers.
Similarly, that is one of SIAC’s most important goals: making sure we offer the highest quality and most up-to-date information to help communities implement the most effective alarm management policies. We hope our tips are relevant as ADT’s. Check us out at: http://www.siacinc.org/.
SIAC thanks ADT for their ongoing and long-term support. Contributors like ADT keep us going, teach us, and allow SIAC to get out in front of critical alarm management issues so you don’t have to.
