The Monitoring Association (TMA) is pleased to announce that Interface Security Systems, LLC – Earth City, MO has renewed the prestigious “TMA Five Diamond Monitoring Center” designation. This designation is granted annually to monitoring centers that satisfy all of the requirements of the “five points of excellence”:

  • Commitment to ongoing job-related education and testing by having 100% of its monitoring center operators certified using the TMA online training series on industry best practices.

The TMA Five Diamond designation means, in particular, that a monitoring company has demonstrated an exceptionally high degree of responsibility to their local community and their customers through the investment of time, money and commitment to quality operator training. Operators serve as the life-saving link between residential or business properties and the police, fire and emergency services in local areas. The TMA Monitoring Center Operator course covers virtually all phases of monitoring center communications with customers, police, fire and emergency services communications centers. In order to achieve the Five Diamond designation, each and every operator must not only pass the course, but demonstrate:

  • Proficiency in alarm confirmation process, which helps reduce false alarms
  • Proficiency in communications with Public Service Answering Points, such as the Emergency 911 centers
  • Knowledge of electronic communications equipment, including, cellular, radio and internet communication systems
  • An understanding of the codes and standards of such organizations as Underwriters Laboratories, Factory Mutual, the National Fire Protection Association and others
  • Proficiency in the area of emergency preparedness under a wide scenario of possibilities.

Record Growth Propels Interface Security Systems to #1 RMR Growth Ranking
Among 50 Largest Security Companies Based on SDM Magazine’s 100 Report

Growth Propelled Exclusively by Organic Initiatives

(June 28, 2016, Saint Louis, MO) – Interface Security Systems Holdings, Inc. (Interface or the Company), a leading North American provider of Internet Protocol (IP) Bundled Managed physical security and secured managed network services, recently surpassed other major security companies to become the 7th largest company in the electronic security industry based on SDM Magazine’s 2016 SDM 100 Report and is now ranked #1 amongst the 50 largest security companies based on 28.2% recurring monthly revenue (RMR) growth rate during the fiscal year 2015.

“Breaking into the Top 10 industry rankings reflects the Company’s strong organic growth for 2015, and is an exciting milestone for Interface,” said Michael Shaw, CEO of Interface Security Systems Holdings, Inc. “The adoption of our unique bundle of mission critical IP-based physical and network security products and services, continues to expand across multiple retail, hospitality and restaurant sectors, leading to dramatic and sustainable customer growth. Our sales pipeline remains robust and highly active, with potential new customer opportunities. We expect to see continued RMR growth and improvements in our financial and operating metrics during 2016, as we continue to deliver value added IP managed services to our target markets.”

The SDM 100 Report ranks U.S. companies that earn their revenues from the sale, installation, service and monitoring of electronic security systems to all types of customers including commercial, industrial, government and residential customers.

  • The primary objective of the report is to measure consumer dollars gained by alarm companies, in order to present an account of the size of the market served by the 100 largest security providers.
  • SDM 100 firms are ranked by their RMR.

“Jumping five positions — from #12 last year to #7 overall (and #1 for Non-Residential Installations) — in this competitive industry is an impressive feat considering our RMR growth was exclusively accomplished organically,” Shaw adds. “Typically, mergers and acquisitions play a predominant role in changes in the rankings but we earned our move up the leaderboard by winning the battle on the customer front. This is an exciting time for Interface. Our unique value proposition for large retail and hospitality companies capitalizes on the ever-increasing needs these companies have to integrate, manage and secure IP technologies across their stores, restaurants and properties. Interface’s ability to deliver a simpler, more efficient and secure solution has translated into record growth for the Company.”

Interface Security Systems Teams with Speedway Motorsports to Provide Proximity Services to Fans at Charlotte Motor Speedway

Mobile App Analyzes Fan Movement and Suggests Faster Alternatives

(May 23, 2016, Saint Louis, MO) Interface Security Systems Holdings, Inc. (Interface) and Speedway Motorsports, Inc. (SMI), have partnered to improve the experience of hundreds of thousands of fans at the Charlotte Motor Speedway this Memorial Day weekend, with an updated mobile app that can detect long lines and crowded entrances to suggest faster alternatives.

Visitors to the May 29 Coca Cola 600 and preliminary races who carry the Charlotte Motor Speedway app, which analyzes fan movement and provides interaction with in-app messages, will now be connected to a vast network of Bluetooth low-energy sensors and Cisco Meraki wireless access points that were installed and will be managed by Interface, a leading North American provider of Internet Protocol (“IP”) Bundled Managed physical security and secured managed network services.

“Fans are challenged navigating a vast, one thousand acre plus venue,” says Interface, “and that’s why Interface Proximity as a managed service matters, to help SMI stay engaged and improve fan experience with relevant information regardless of where fans are. Whether it’s helping them find driver appearances, fan engagement areas, locations to rent scanners or just something to eat, the app can provide a better and more consistent experience.”

In racing’s nearly 60-year history, signs and verbal communication from on-site representatives have been the mediums of choice for track operators and their sponsors to get the word out to fans about products, services or causes available at the race, plus directions around the facility. But as 2016 gets underway, messaging is about to get much more targeted.

“Interface and its software team IgniteBLE have committed significant attention and intuition to the project and building use cases,” says Geoff Ulrich, vice president of marketing of SMI, “from geo-fencing airports and highways to track where our fans arrive from, to providing accurate measurement across concession and sponsor venues, we’ve never had richer insights to drive more value to our fans and partners.”

The Interface Proximity team provides end-to-end service from design of physical device placement to mobile app integration, campaign management and reporting. The Interface engagement began with speedways in Dallas/Ft. Worth and Charlotte and is on target to include all eight speedways by year’s end.

“It’s just another reason to download the app — and that’s a big push for us this year,” says Mike Burch, senior vice president of national sales and marketing of SMI, which, through its subsidiaries, is a leading marketer and promoter of motorsports entertainment in the U.S., owning and operating eight speedways. “We had great adoption last year, but we really want to make having that on-your-phone element be a vital part of getting the most out of the race.”
