Q&A: Frank Santamorena ('It Takes a Thief') on Serving the Residential Market

ASSA ABLOY integration specialist advises security for popular TV program, shares tips from the world of residential security

SecurityInfoWatch.com: Why did they hire you for this second season?

Santamorena: I think there are two reasons I was hired over the other highly recommended names. First is because I was credentialed. I had the board certification from ASIS International. Second, and I think that this was just as important, is that I never compromised. They asked me if I would change something I specified, and I said no. They respected that. I would never compromise a family's security for the cause of making great TV.
