Phone Calls Attempt to Scam Kansas City Residents
(LENEXA, KS) – March 28, 2016 – SCAM ALERT! We have received some calls from our customers who say they have been contacted by someone proposing to “update” their alarm system and “lower” their monthly monitoring. The caller is usually foreign who refuses to leave a call back number. The caller I.D. is not our office or our monitoring station. The caller also mentions the system in the home is more than 3 years old. THIS IS A SCAM. We do not use telemarketers. You can find our employees on our website and always reach us at 913.362.0000.
Please let other people know who may not have access to email or the Internet. These types of phone scams most often target the elderly. If you have been contacted by someone like this, or have any questions, please call us immediately at 913.362.0000 or send us a personal message.
Atronic Alarms Ranks on the SDM Top 100 Security Integrators Report
“SDM’s Top Systems Integrators Report ranks companies by their North American systems integration revenue, which includes solutions such as design, project management, product, installation, programming, start-up, and training sold directly to an end-user customer or through a tier of contractors,” according to the SDM website.
Atronic Alarms came in at #87 on the report, and was the only security company in Kansas to rank. In the midwest, only 7 companies ranked in this report.
Earlier this year, Atronic came in at #82 in the SDM Top 100 security system installers list, which “ranks U.S. companies that earn their revenues from the sale, installation, service and monitoring of electronic security systems — such as intrusion and fire alarm, access control, video surveillance, and related low-voltage systems — to residential and non-residential customers,” according to the SDM website.
The difference between the two lists is that the Top Systems Integrators rank companies by their total revenue, versus the SDM Top 100 rank companies by total recurring monthly revenue.
