Close to 90 security professions joined SIAC at its awards breakfast at ESX recently in Fort Worth, TX. The action-paced morning included opening remarks from Board Chair Kirk MacDowell, followed by SIAC Executive Director Stan Martin’s review of its 20 year history.

Brandon Freedman, SIAC Board member, acknowledged SIAC’s top five contributors with special 20th anniversary hand-engraved ink pens — Johnson Controls, Resideo, NetOne, Comcast and ADT, and thanked all SIAC Contributors.

ADT was selected as the 2022 Police Dispatch Quality Award winner for their SMART Technology, saving over 1.5 million law enforcement dispatches without making a phone call.

Professor Joe Kuhns made a presentation on the Academic Study regarding “the Long-Term Effectiveness of the Alarm Model Ordinance,” and the remarkable results. Stay tuned for our next blog, where we will provide you more information on this topic.

Finally, during Kirk MacDowell’s concluding remarks, he, along with board members Tim Creenan and Brandon Freedman made an unexpected award presentation to Executive Director Stan Martin for his 20 years of service to the industry. We expect more pictures from this presentation, and will provide readers with more information on this as well in upcoming blog.

Thank you to all who attended and support SIAC. We’re proud to have served the electronic security industry for the last twenty years, and appreciate those who contribute their time and money to the alarm management cause.
