DMP makes "All-American."

A unique house is being built in Bozeman, Mont., and security products manufacturer Digital Monitoring Products (DMP) is playing a role in its construction.

Dubbed the “All-American Home,” the 2,200-square-foot dwelling, with an estimated final cost of $400,000, is being built with products that are predominantly American-made, according to the Bozeman Daily Chronicle newspaper. And now DMP, an independent manufacturer of intrusion, fire, access control, network and cellular communication products, has been chosen to provide the home’s security system—because that company says all its products are made in Springfield, Mo., where the company is based.

Here’s more from a news release the company sent out last week:
 

Digital Monitoring Products (DMP) has been selected to provide the security system for the All-American Home, being built in Bozeman MT, with the help of Kenco Security and Technology to install the system. Anders Lewendal, an economist turned builder, is constructing the 2,200 sq. ft., three-bedroom home entirely from U.S.-made products in order to demonstrate the economics and benefits of buying domestic goods. The XT Series Burglary/Fire/Door Access Panel chosen for the home, like all DMP products, is designed and made in Springfield MO. Kenco Security and Technology will install the system.

“It’s unfortunate that building a home from only U.S.-made materials is newsworthy,” said Vice President of Sales, Mark NeSmith. “DMP believes that there are many benefits to designing and building products right here in America. It enables us to stay more closely connected with customers, respond more personally and quickly to their needs, and expedite delivery of products. DMP is the only security technology company able to stamp ‘Made in America’ on every product we sell.” …

“As a local company, we are especially interested in the idea of buying American-made products in order to increase jobs here at home,” says Thad Lensing, Director of Sales and Marketing at Kenco, [which designs, sells, installs and services commercial and residential burglar and fire alarm systems in Montana and Wyoming, and provides monitoring for alarm subscribers from its Monitoring Center in Billings.] “We are proud to be part of the program, and hope it raises awareness of the benefits each of us can create just by buying products made here in the U.S.”

Everything from the nails, screws and bolts to the steel, staples and bathtub is made in the United States. In all, the home will include more than 120 products from more than 33 states.

In addition to proving that it’s possible to economically build a home using only domestic materials and products, Lewendal also sees this as an opportunity to stimulate the U.S. economy. He cites figures demonstrating that, if every builder bought just five percent more U.S.-made materials, it would create 220,000 jobs.

 

Does AT&T’s purchase of T-Mobile threaten the industry?

YARMOUTH, Maine—Ever since rumblings of a POTS sunset began last year, the security industry has been concerned with where a dependable communications pathway would come from. Most eyes have turned to broadband and GSM as two alternatives. With the March 20 announcement of AT&T’s agreement to buy competitor T-Mobile for $39 billion, a new wrinkle to the communications pathway has been introduced with which the security industry must contend, assuming the acquisition passes muster with the SEC.
