Security Networks goes to Atlanta with A-Alarm

Thursday, June 22, 2006

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla.--Full-service security company Security Networks on June 22 announced a partnership with A-Alarm of Atlanta, as part of Security Networks' Affiliate Program, a dealer program launched in October of last year.
Gary Franklyn, vice president of business development for Security Networks said, with this particular deal, Security Networks will have an "ongoing purchase agreement going forward that they are going to sell us accounts."
As part of the affiliate program, A-Alarm, a residential security company that has been in business for five years, will market and install Security Networks products and services while Security Networks will provide the monitoring. After 90 days, Security Networks also assumes the service for the accounts.
"We expect to add 10-20 new accounts per week as a result of this partnership," Franklyn said.
To take care of the Atlanta area accounts, Franklin said Security Networks will open a service center in Atlanta by early September. The deal marks Security Networks first foray into the Atlanta market, delivering on a target identified by Rich Perry, president and chief executive officer of Security Networks, earlier this year.
Still in its early stages, the Security Networks Affiliate Program is now ramping up, and affiliate deals and acquisitions are currently in the works, Franklyn said.
