How I Use My System: Matt Eyrich

Friday, July 8, 2016

Matt Eyrich is the VP of commercial sales for LOUD Security, based in Kennesaw, Ga. He joined the company four years ago to lead the commercial sales division for the company. Since then, the division has added on an administrative employee, two sales people and is looking to hire a third commercial salesperson. Security Systems News got the chance to talk with Eyrich about the system he chose for his home.

What kind of system do you have?

I have a DMP system [with a touch screen keypad]. … I have automated door locks, I’ve got [smart] thermostats. I have lighting controls. I have the app that does all that fun stuff; I have cameras that are all controlled through my app.

Why this particular setup?

I use DMP [at LOUD Security], and I believe in that product. It’s a good quality product, everything tested before it gets shipped out. … I’m sure when I arm that thing, it’s going to work at night or when I’m away.

What is one aspect of your security system that you wouldn’t want to live without?

For me, I guess it’s two-fold: the cameras, and also I can have a notification when the front door opens and closes, which lets me know when my daughter actually gets home. She can also check in on the keypad when she gets home. Really that part of it is what I use the most. My wife, on the other hand, she uses the thermostat controls non-stop.

Where do you see security going next? What are some big trends?

I see security going more to a lifestyle. We used to just sell security. … Now, you’re selling a lifestyle change, how you can control everything, and security. … I see a lot of people getting more involved with cameras and recorders at home.
