The marketplace for alarm systems and security equipment has changed much over the last decade or so. The birth of the web in the mid 90's fostered this change by putting regional dealers and wholesalers in direct contact nationwide with the growing DIY (do it yourself) market. This direct contact to wholesalers has continued to impact the market and has picked up pace dramatically over the last decade.
Protech Systems, headquartered in Columbus Indiana who operates the website AlarmSystemStore.com has watched and experienced these drastic changes first hand. In fact, it's fair to say they were among the early pioneers that drove this evolution. The company started in 1997 as a traditional installing alarm company and created it's first website about a year later in 1998. "E-commerce was in its infancy at that time, keep in mind Google wasn't even founded until late 1998", says Protech Systems founder and CEO Andy Bowman. "Sales online were relatively small back then by today's standards, but within a few years sales online eclipsed our local operation drastically, so in 2001 we totally transformed the business into an e-commerce based international wholesale model and never looked back. Our sales have grown 14 of the 15 years we've been in business, likely because of the ever growing e-commerce market and the shift from local purchasing to regional or national made easier by the web."
Today the company is one of the largest independently owned security companies in the midwest by equipment sales volume. Headquartered in Columbus Indiana and with numerous distribution centers peppered across the US, the company sells alarm systems and security equipment from all the major brands such as Honeywell Security, Digital Security Controls and GE Security / UTC wholesale direct to individuals, business and installing dealers worldwide. This direct wholesale to consumer approach means that customers typically save at least 50% of the cost on their security equipment by eliminating the markup of the middle man traditional alarm dealer.
One thing that sets Alarm System Store apart from most other wholesalers, online or otherwise is that they have an in house technical support department. Customers can call toll free to get any programming or setup support they may need with their products. This is especially helpful for the DIY homeowner that more often than not have no experience with installing their own alarm equipment. “Our tech support department is something that I am really proud of.” says Protech Systems CEO Andy Bowman. “These guys really do a great job at getting customers with zero knowledge of the security products they are installing up and running in short order. I routinely get emails from customers praising how good their experience was with tech support”
For those that don’t wish to program and setup their own systems even with the help of tech support, the company does offer a pre program and setup service that make the systems plug and play for customers. A great option for those that don’t have the time or inclination to program their system themselves.
Alarm System Store is a division of Protech Systems, LLC, established in 1997. The company sells alarm systems and over a thousand other security products wholesale direct to do it yourselfers, businesses and to all levels of government via it’s website http://www.alarmsystemstore.com .
