NACC has a storied past

IRVINE, Calif.- National Alarm Computer Center may have just been purchased by Integrated Alarm Services Group, but the company has been through a variety of owners in the past three years.

Started by the Schubert family, NACC has been widely known throughout the market for its state-of-the-art central station, as well as offering the latest in services and technology. The family-run business was sold to Cambridge Protection Industries- an installation business created through the SecurityLink from Ameritech deal- in 2002. Jim Covert was heading up the operation at that time and quickly sold Cambridge Protection and NACC to Tyco for $1 billion a few months later.

Now, Tyco has divested itself of the wholesale monitoring center and whether or not it remains open for business is up in the air. IASG operates three monitoring stations in New Jersey, Minnesota and California and with NACC being located in California as well, it may be unnecessary to keep both in operation. IASG closed Protection Service Industries’ monitoring center in Albuquerque, N.M., three months after it purchased that business in December of last year.
