Stanley Convergent Security Solutions Inc. (Stanley CSS), Naperville, Ill., purchased Electronic Protection Network Inc. (doing business as Sonitrol of Savannah), a Sonitrol dealer since 2002, located in Savannah, Ga.  The sale includes mostly commercial accounts including retail, restaurant, industrial, banking and education customers being serviced throughout Georgia. Terms of the sale were not disclosed. 

Stanley CSS plans to retain the Savannah location, Felix Gonzales, vice president of strategic initiatives and business development at Stanley CSS, told SDM. "In fact that’s one of the strategic reasons for the acquisition," Gonzales said. "If you look at Georgia, CSS has maintained an Atlanta office and last year we purchased a Sonitrol branch in the north... This acquisition allows us to go ahead and have a direct channel for customers in Savannah and the surrounding area. For us it really is an expansion of our Sonitrol capabilities through a direct channel, allowing us to continue to mainstream our Sonitrol offering."

Gonzales also commented the company is very pleased with the employees in design, service and customer support that came on board with the acquisition. 

“The acquisition of Electronic Protection Network Inc. allows us to increase our presence in the Georgia market. We look forward to working with our new customers by upholding Stanley CSS’s commitment and dedication to superior customer service,” stated Tony Byerly, president, Stanley CSS North America and United Kingdom Direct.

“As a Sonitrol franchise, the acquisition of Electronic Protection Network is a natural fit for us. Stanley has over 52,000 customers using the Sonitrol technology across North America and the United Kingdom, so we’re happy to be adding Sonitrol of Savannah’s customers to the Stanley family,” continued Byerly.

Sonitrol impact activated audio verified monitoring can determine if a break-in is in progress or if a false alarm has occurred. Sonitrol technology delivers one of the lowest false alarm rates and one of the highest numbers of police apprehensions in the security industry — 164,000 and counting, Stanley CSS said in a press release.
