The Grinch Who Stole Poinsettias

With the Christmas season fast approaching, Dial One Security client, Natorp's, was on the receiving end of "The Grinch Who Stole Christmas". With their greenhouses full of Poinsettias waiting to be shipped out and sold for Christmas, someone was helping themselves to the plants at night. Although their security cameras had captured images of the thief, the thief had not been caught in the act. With the weekend approaching, Dial One Security was contacted by Kyle Natorp, CEO of Natorp's, on Thursday about the theft problem and what could be done to help them out. Mike Brown in our sales department configured a Lynx 5200 security system for the greenhouse that would provide a top notch security solution at an affordable price. On Friday morning, Dial One Security installation technician Jeremy Miller, was given the task of installing the system. Jeremy decided that the best way to catch a thief was to not give them any warning that the system had been triggered, so the system was installed as a completely silent alarm. The system was also configured with Advanced Protection Logic to send in the alarm signal immediately upon any of the sensors being activated in the event that the control panel was destroyed during the break in. By Friday afternoon the system was installed and ready to be put to the test. Little did anyone think that the system would be put to the test so soon. Friday night the thieves once again showed up at the Natorp's greenhouse to help themselves to a little holiday cheer. This time the security system was there to greet them and...

Sponsorship of Madisonville Streetfest

  Dial One Security was a sponsor of the Madisonville Streetfest this past weekend. The annual event is put on by the community each year to bring together families for a day of free food, live music and games. Streetfest is organized with the help of Madisonville Weed & Seed along with several churches in the community which set up booths with games for the children. Each year backpacks full of school supplies are given out to the children in preparation for the upcoming school year.   Dial One Security set up a life safety booth this year to hand out First Alert Professional life safety booklets along with the Marty & Jett's Fire Safety coloring books. The life safety books covered the topics of Fire Safety, Personal Safety, Internet Safety, Poison Safety, Pet Safety and Cyberbulling (click on the name of the booklet above to download). We demonstrated the ReadyGuard 5100 security system and the importance of smoke detectors to compliment the life safety booklets.There were also demonstrations by the Cincinnati Police Department and the SWAT team. What event would be successful without food, especially free food? With burgers, brats, ice cream and drinks, everyone went home with a smile on their face and a full belly. If they were lucky, they also went home with school supplies and some prizes from the games. The weather held out for us this year and it turned out to be a perfect day for Streetfest. We hope that Dial One Security was able to provide the people of the community with valuable life safety information that will help them in the future and possibly...

Dial One Security Hosts Cincinnati Regional Chamber CEO-CFO Roundtable Cookout

On June 26, Dial One Security hosted the Cincinnati Regional Chamber of Commerce CEO-CFO Roundtable Cookout. It was a fun afternoon to socialize and network over some burgers, brats and beverages. Mother Nature even put on quite the show for us with a torrential thunderstorm, but it in no way dampened the mood of the day. Despite the weather, we had approximately 20 members attend the event. Apple Spice Junction catered the event and was able to set up quite the spread of food inside of one of our buildings to avoid the thunderstorm. Thanks to all of you that attended, and we look forward to doing a similar event in the...
