Welsh has similar observations: “We have 5,000 security dealers we work with and they had a great year. We are hearing that the DIY systems are addressing a different segment of the market. They are not necessarily cannibalizing
the market. is a legitimate segment that is growing but we haven’t seen it be a significant factor for the small and medium guys. Even with the cable and MSOs that have taken share, I think that perhaps it is more at the big guy level. ADT and Comcast are going back and forth while the independent security dealers win business by being local and being a part of the community. ”That is exactly what Rehman is noticing in his business. “The big companies are growing the market, not taking share away. They are trying to penetrate a market that never really had an alarm system before. They are already in the house for telephone, Internet or cable and trying to throw a spin in there to bundle this home
security in. I have noticed that those national companies can’t give that personal service and we have gotten clients whose first alarm system was with a cable company.
