Vector Security Inc., a provider of intelligent mobile security and home automation solutions, opened a new retail storefront in Fort Mitchell, Ky. The location is the second to feature a hands-on customer experience concept; the company’s first retail storefront offering this true-to-life experience opened in Canfield, Ohio in July.

The storefront offers customers the opportunity to touch, feel and demo security and home automation solutions offered by Vector Security within a Customer Experience Area that feature products such as security control panels, indoor and outdoor video cameras, doorbell cameras, lights, thermostats and other smart home devices. Real windows and doors show how sensors and contacts work and how alarms can be triggered. 

Additionally, customers can use a store-provided iPad to relax in the store’s “living room” and experience the protection, comfort and convenience of controlling smart home functions using the Vector Security mobile app. 

Likewise, customers can demo voice control using an Amazon Echo Dot to see how Vector Security “skills” can be used to control their security system, as well as lights, locks and thermostats. 

Those who wish to purchase equipment can place an order onsite and schedule professional installation, or make an appointment for an in-depth, in-home consultation with a sales representative. 

Located at 2498 Dixie Highway in Fort Mitchell, the storefront’s grand opening began Nov. 8. 

“We are very excited to bring this storefront concept to the Fort Mitchell/Cincinnati area,” said Tina Elgin, Vector Security’s central district vice president. “We look forward to showcasing our intelligent security and smart home products to the community so they can experience first-hand the protection and convenience our solutions can add to their lifestyle.” 

“The storefront adds a new dimension of visibility for our brand…and we are proud to open this second location featuring a hands-on customer experience,” said Art Miller, vice president, Marketing. “We invite the community – current customers as well as the general public who might be curious about our smart home and security solutions – to come visit us.” 

Vector Security plans to roll out additional storefront locations in key markets over the next several months for local brand awareness and easy access to smart home and business security and automation solutions.
