The security space is growing rapidly — and presents a significant opportunity for CE Pros to tap into streams of recurring monthly revenue (RMR). Security dealers have perfected the RMR-based business model and have built incredibly strong, financially sound organizations on RMR foundations.
Customers no longer want independent systems — they are looking for technology providers.
As more and more solutions are tied together and consumers continue to demand convenience and control from the palm of their hand, this makes it the perfect time for you to add security to your overall offering and the Electronic Security Association is here to help.
ESA is the largest trade association representing the electronic security and life safety industry. Member companies install, integrate and monitor intrusion and fire detection, video surveillance and electronic access control systems for commercial, residential, industrial and governmental clients. If you are not a member of ESA and you have already started to offer security products and solutions — or if you are just getting started, or trying to figure out where to start, join ESA right away and take advantage of our network that provides best practices and insight you can’t get anywhere else.
Here’s is what you can expect when you join ESA:
