FRISCO, Texas (April 1, 2009) – The Security Industry Alarm Coalition (SIAC) and the False Alarm Reduction Association (FARA) are proud to announce that Atronic Alarms, of Lenexa, KS, has been honored with the Police Dispatch Quality (PDQ) Award. Co-sponsored by Honeywell Security and Security Sales & Integration Magazine, the PDQ Award annually recognizes the security company which best demonstrates a proactive, cooperative and successful effort in alarm reduction strategies.

“Atronic Alarms is very excited to be recognized for our dedication to reducing false alarms,” said Perry Atha, President and Developer of Atronic Alarms. “We have always made false alarm prevention a priority by using only the best technologies in quality installations. We also believe that on-going education is a great way to continue reducing alarms.”

“Atronic Alarms fully integrates alarm dispatch management practices throughout all company departments, and achieved a nearly perfect score in every area that the PDQ Award measures,” stated Stan Martin, Executive Director of SIAC. “They have clearly demonstrated a strong alarm management program which we believe should be emulated by others.”

“In looking through all of the qualified applicants, Atronic Alarms stood out due to their utilization of all SIAC and FARA-recommended best practices for alarm reductions,” added Brad Shipp, Executive Director of FARA. “While implementing reduction processes such as Enhanced Call Verification and installing only CP-01 Control Panels, Atronic Alarms also demonstrated outstanding customer training and follow-up on all alarm dispatches.”

The official award ceremony for the PDQ Award took place on March 31, 2009, prior to the opening of the International Security Conference and Exposition (ISC West) in Las Vegas, NV. Previous winners include Alarm Detection Systems Inc., Brink’s Home Security and Vector Security.
