MDI plans to enter the monitoring business
SAN ANTONIOÃ¢â‚¬â€MDI Security Systems, the command-and-control software maker, announced in a state of the company address released on Nov. 13 that it plans to open its first central station here in 2008.
MDI, which purchased the Ã¢â‚¬Å“Safe InitiativesÃ¢â‚¬Â brand portfolio from Stratis Authority, effective July 11, plans to manage all video surveillance and alarm monitoring for its school district clients as a component of its LearnSafe Initiative.
The company plans to remodel a 16,000-square-foot facility, which was acquired as part of a shares purchase of STC Holdings in October, to house MDIÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s new central station. MDI currently has its corporate offices in the same facility.
