PEARLAND, TX, March 06, 2009 /24-7PressRelease/ -- After 20 years as a leading independent home security provider, Ranger American Security Systems of Houston, Texas, is changing its name to ConnectOne. ConnectOne, an ADT Authorized Dealer, is being introduced in Houston, San Antonio, Austin, Phoenix and Little Rock. ADT is the #1 security monitoring company in America.
In making the announcement, Wayne Hayes, owner and chairman, said the name change was necessary because home security is no longer the company's sole focus. ConnectOne currently offers a suite of commercial and residential products and services including: commercial telephone cabling and data, commercial fire and sprinkler, commercial water management products and services, controlled access, and video and web interactive systems. In addition, ConnectOne provides a variety of consulting services to home builders and consumers for home media, lighting, vacuum and sound systems, electric utility services and monitoring services.
"A company doesn't change its name without considering what might be lost in the transition. We're proud of the reputation Ranger American has earned over the past 20 years and the dedicated customer base the company has maintained. As ConnectOne we want to be the one company consumers and businesses can trust to make their homes and businesses safer, more efficient, fun and future proof," Hayes said.
"While our core business for some time will remain security monitoring, our commercial, multi-housing and new technology divisions of the company will continue to see significant growth. We're looking for good people with expertise who can help ConnectOne expand in new markets and prosper."
ConnectOne (Ranger American Security Systems of Houston, Texas) is the single largest ADT Authorized Dealer located in the State of Texas, and consistently ranks in the top 10 dealers in North America. In annual ADT customer satisfaction surveys, ConnectOne has consistently scored in the 99 percentile.
ADT protects over 90% of the Fortune 500 companies, most U. S. retailer and financial institutions, 6 million American Homes and families, U. S. government building and over 100 U. S. airports. ConnectOne is one of only two Honeywell certified dealers offering security and comfort solutions in the state of Texas.
"When it comes to security, it is essential to do business with a company that's going to be here in the future. Over 90% of the security companies doing business in Houston in the 1980s are no longer in business," said George Rino, CEO/President. "ConnectOne is as much about trust and confidence as it is the products and services we provide."
Ranger Amercian Security Systems of Houston has installed products and services in over 200,000 new homes built by virtually every major homebuilder including David Weekley Homes, Perry Homes, Taylor Morrison, Beazer, and Plantation Homes.
"At one time an alarm system was a premium feature costing thousands of dollars. Today an alarm system is a standard feature among many," said Rino. "We can provide security monitoring for anyone who owns a home in any of the markets we serve."
ConnectOne currently employs 200 full time employees. ConnectOne's corporate office is located at 10750 Hammerly, Suite 100, Houston, TX 77043, 713-977-5887 visit www.connectonesecurity.com
