HSM (formerly Honeywell Security Monitoring), Jupiter, Fla., almost doubled its presence in Denver with the purchase of Jackson Burglar Alarm, Denver, Colo. The sale includes 2,200 commercial and residential accounts being serviced throughout Colorado, including the towns of Denver, Fort Collins, Loveland, Greeley, Longmont, Castle Rock, Boulder, Colorado Springs and Pueblo.

“The Jackson Burglar Alarm acquisition allows us to increase our presence in the Denver area, a market we see as a strong growth opportunity for our company. As we continue to expand, we look forward to working with our new customers by upholding HSM’s commitment and dedication to superior customer service,” said Tim Whall, HSM president and COO.

This acquisition is HSM’s fourth since May. The company previously purchased accounts from ACS Security in Los Angeles, and acquired Sylvester Security Alarms of Santa Maria, Calif., and National Alarm Pro, Turnbull, Conn. “All four have been for different reasons,” Whall said. They added accounts with ACS Security, entered a new market with Sylvester Alarm, and improved their national presence with National Alarm Pro. In making acquisitions, Whall said HSM looks for a company with a solid customer base, a low cancellation rate, a good reputation and growth. “Jackson represented all that for us,” Whall said. “They’re a fixture out in that Denver marketplace.”

HSM thought the growing, individually owned company would be a good addition. “We’re trying to grow the business organically, as well,” Whall said. “We’re happy about it, I can tell you that.”

According to Stewart Jackson, president of Jackson Burglar Alarm, “Joining forces with HSM will allow our customers to have access to superior security services in the U.S. With technology changing almost daily, this broad ability to provide the most advanced service will only enhance the quality of service our customers are used to receiving.”

Jackson Burglar Alarm’s salespeople and technicians will be retained. Terms of the sale were not disclosed. The Denver office of HSM is located at 6000 East Evans Avenue and can be reached at (303) 584-5914.
