RICHMOND, Va.—Richmond Alarm this month sold a home theater/home audio business that it purchased two years ago to a local home technology integrator.
The sale to Livewire of NSN Technologies took place July 18, said Wayne Boggs, president of Richmond Alarm, a Honeywell First Alert dealer based here.
NSN did not perform as expected after the bottom fell out of the new housing construction market in the recession, so the offer by Livewire to purchase the business benefited both companies, Boggs told Security Systems News.
The controversy surrounding Article 6-E—proposed legislation in New York that looks to vet and license central station employees according to statewide standards—has many in the industry talking about central station employee training. There are plenty of virtual and classroom training options provided by industry associations like CSAA and SIA. And, many monitoring companies take full control and create their own training programs for employees.
MIDLOTHIAN, Va.—Wayne Boggs says his company, Richmond Alarm Company, is ready for future growth with an almost completed move from four different offices in three different locations in downtown Richmond into a much larger, single building on a 4.5-acre lot, based here.
