NorthStar and Kid on the Move representatives present the Pittman family with their home security system gift certificate.

We have thought about getting a home security system for quite some time now, and are very grateful that NorthStar made it possible for us.

Last week, NorthStar Alarm presented the Pittmans, the family of 2-year old Ryker Pittman who receives therapy through the Kids on the Move organization, with a home security system and monitoring package at no cost. The family was selected to receive the package after entering an essay contest that NorthStar Alarm and Kids on the Move held for over families involved in the Kids on the Move organization.

"We have thought about getting an alarm system or quite some time now and are grateful that NorthStar made it possible for us," said Stacie Pittman, mother of Ryker Pittman. "We feel much safer about being in our home already.”

The Pittman family is receiving a wireless home security system with an easy-to-use touch screen panel and mobile control allows the family to arm the system and receive text messages each time a door or window in the home is opened. NorthStar is also covering the monitoring of the system for two years, after that the equipment will still be able to be armed and disarmed. The system and monitoring together is valued at $2,500.

"We really appreciate this generous donation and the support that NorthStar has provided for our organization and community," said Holly Bushnell, PR manager of the Kids on the Move organization.

NorthStar, a company founded on the core value of service, is always looking for ways to give back to the community. Getting involved with Kids on the Move and providing the Pittman family with a home security system was a special opportunity for the company.    

“In addition to the traditional home security benefits, the new technology in our systems is incredibly beneficial for parents like the Pittmans that are simply trying to stay connected with their home and family,” said NorthStar Alarm CEO Jason Christensen. “It’s exciting for us to see this new technology benefit families that are admirably dealing with unique challenges.”

The system install will be done by Ryan Forbes, NorthStar Alarm install technician manager.
