Atronic Alarms Inc., Lenexa, Kansas, a security, fire and home automation systems provider in Kansas, marked its 30th year in business.

Founded in 1982 by Perry D. Atha, a fourth-generation Kansas City resident, the company has grown from a small local alarm provider to one of the largest security integrators in the region, employing 31 staffers and serving thousands of commercial and residential customers.

The company was founded with a laser-like focus on people, working from day one to offer the highest level of customer service with quality installation and equipment to Kansas City area residents and to continually build relationships with clients, Atha tells SDM.

“From the beginning, was important to provide people with a product and service they could trust. They needed to be able to feel comfortable with the people that made up the company: the sales people, the installation crew and customer service. That was the foundation 30 years ago and still holds true today,” Atha shared.

Atha was also quick to acknowledge the people at the company.

“This incredible milestone never could have been realized without the dedication of our amazing employees,” Atha said. “Their hard work and professionalism have helped us grow into one of the most respected and forward-thinking companies in the industry.”

At Atronic Alarms, employees are encouraged to find balance between work and family.

“The concept about balance with family and work is simple: If you aren't happy at home you won't be happy at work and then our clients won't be happy. So we recognize and nurture our employees and their families as much as possible. Employees who take pride in themselves and thecompany they work for also take pride in the job they do, which never fails to be recognized by clients,” Atha explains.

Looking ahead, Atha shares that Atronic will focus on “video monitoring, video analytics and remote management through mobile devices along with hosted and managed access control services. We always keep abreast of home automation and energy management developments, as well. What makes life easier for our clients, what makes the quality of living higher,” Atha shares.

He notes that Atronic is at the forefront of the implementation of fully integrated applications that allow clients to remotely manage their systems through their mobile phones, tablets and desktop computers.

Atronic Alarms is the recipient of numerous industry awards, including the 2004 “Dealer of the Year” award from SDM, a PDQ award in 2009, and Ingram's “Best Companies to Work For” in 2010. The company also has been recognized for its assistance in protecting abuse victims through its work with the non-profit Kansas City Domestic Violence Protection Services Agency.

“We look forward to many more decades of serving our community, protecting our clients and fostering a great work environment for our employees,” Atha said, maintaining that focus on people that has led to 30 years of success.
