Bad Economy Sets Off Alarms

According to Jordon Brown, regional manager for Guard Tronic Inc. of Fort Smith, a sour economy can be sweet for his industry.

"When an economy slows down, the security industry lags behind somewhat, but will usually follow that economic trend," he said. "If the economy stays down, crime increases and our market picks back up, even in a 'down' economy. As the economy bounces back, clients now have more money and are already conscious of the need for added security."

16,000

Number of employees company-wide working for Diebold Inc. The corporation was established in 1869 and employs 45 licensed alarm technicians in Arkansas.

159,000 SF

Size of a Pulaski Technical College facility for which Fleming Network Services of Bentonville installed security systems. Fleming jumped to fifth place on the list this year, up from ninth last year.

9 Number of respondents on this list, out of 16, that focus services entirely on security and monitoring without offering other technical services like cabling, sound systems, etc.

VoIP

Voice over Internet Protocol. This technology is beginning to replace POTS, or Plain Old Telephone Service, as more customers disconnect their wireline phones. Historically, home security was connected solely through home telephones.
