STAMFORD, Conn.—Frontier Communications about four years ago tried a go-it-alone experiment offering home security in a small town in Pennsylvania. The telecom, based here, did everything from marketing the product to monitoring it through a third-party monitoring center.
Now Frontier is taking a different approach in a second foray into the security market: It’s partnering with two security giants, ADT and Protection 1, to offer security products in two separate six-month trial programs, one in upstate New York and one in Pennsylvania.
ROMEOVILLE, Ill.—As part of Protection 1’s effort to grow its national accounts business, the company’s senior management is asking national retailers, banks and other such nationwide companies what they want from a security provider.
ROMEOVILLE, Ill.—Protection 1, one of the nation’s largest home security companies, announced in July that it has partnered with LifeLock, an identity theft protection provider, to help Protection 1’s customers protect their identities as well as their homes.
ROMEOVILLE, Ill.—Protection 1 announced May 3 it is “revolutionizing customer service” with two new initiatives.
One is Tech Tracker, a new service free to Protection 1’s residential, commercial and national accounts customers that electronically notifies them when a technician is en route, and provides such information as the technician’s photo, certifications and qualifications.
ROMEOVILLE, Ill.—Protection 1, which said this fall it would increase “exponentially” its national accounts business, today announced it has acquired the national account client base of Sting Alarm, a regional security company based in Las Vegas.
DALLAS—With the goal of growing its national accounts operation exponentially, Protection One CEO Tim Whall announced at the ASIS show that the entire national accounts group had been moved under one roof, in the neighboring town of Irving, Texas.
