rolls out 'No Show Alerts'

For those consumers that want to know when their kids have arrived home safely from school or whether or not a contractor has shown up as scheduled, alarm monitoring technology provider announced the launch of its new "No Show Alerts" this week.

These alerts are sent to customers of dealers when a particular user has not disabled their alarm system by a specified time, according to the company. The alerts, which are provided at no additional charge to any customer with an interactive account, can be sent via email or text message.

"For a busy parent with a latchkey child headed back to school this fall, No-Show Alerts are a must-have school supply," said Alison Slavin, vice president of product management in a statement.
