Honeywell welcomes leading New Mexico security dealer to First Alert Professional program

Friday, June 28, 2013

MELVILLE, N.Y.—Honeywell today welcomed Armed Response Team (ART), an Albuquerque, N.M.-based security provider originally founded by a group of police officers, to its First Alert Professional (FAP) Dealer Program. The FAP program is the country’s largest independent security dealer network, with more than 500 participating security contractors, Honeywell said in a news release.
For nearly a decade, ART has specialized in residential and commercial burglar, perimeter and fire alarms, access control solutions, and CCTV surveillance systems. The company is one of the country’s most unique because it provides in-person response to burglar alarms using a team of former sworn, highly experienced police officers who maintain state certification.
“Our business’ philosophy is to provide the best service to our customers, especially in an area where we’ve seen growth in alarm system use, demand for police resources, and high false alarm rates,” said David Meurer, ART president. “Becoming a First Alert Professional Dealer will allow us to tap into Honeywell’s expertise, technological innovations and support, which helps strengthen our services to our customers.”
ART last year merged with another New Mexico company, keeping the ART name.
