American Defense Systems has acquired Point Security, a fellow Brinks Home Security authorized dealer in Austin, Texas. While the transaction officially closed July 17, both companies have been working together, installing smart security systems for Brinks Home Security. Curtis Kindred, CEO, American Defense Systems, has worked closely with Todd Fitch, CEO, Point Security, for many years before deciding to join forces.
American Defense Systems will continue to leverage strategic partnerships, providing smart home solutions to both commercial and residential customers on a national level. With the addition of Point Security, CCTV and video surveillance systems will be installed at a higher frequency with ample technician coverage, nationwide.
“I am truly excited to have my colleague and friend, Todd Fitch, on board,” Kindred said. “Todd has built an amazing company and team at Point Security. Together I know we will continue to be industry leaders through this acquisition and increase our overall product offerings throughout our nationwide footprint.”
Point Security specializes in CCTV and hardwire video solutions and smart security systems for both commercial and residential customers. Point will rebrand to American Defense Systems on Aug. 1, facilitating sales and installation in the Austin, San Antonio and Houston markets while utilizing additional resources, state licensing and technicians.
“The Point Security team could not be happier to join Curtis and the rest of the ADS team,” Fitch said. “The leadership, vision and aggressive approach in the connected home industry is second to none. We’re thrilled to be a part of it".
With a combined embedded base of more than 40,000 customers, the joint company will be capable of growing into the number one Brinks Home Security affiliate partner by the end of Q3, 2019.
