Owned by Mark Garland, Advanced Alarm Technologies is a local, third-generation, family-owned business specializing in the installation and service of burglar alarms, fire alarms, access controls and video systems. As a family that has always been heavily involved in protecting others, the folks at Advanced Alarm Technologies fell easily into the security business.
The first generation involved in the company was an active member of the 101st Airborne Division of the U.S. Army. Upon returning home, he entered law enforcement. While serving as an officer, he noticed several issues that could easily be prevented with home security recommendations. This brought a new way of thinking into the family, along with the knowledge that a simple deadbolt could prevent and deter intrusion. This propelled Advanced Alarm Technologies into the locksmithing industry and eventually early alarm systems.
The second generation also participated in the lock shop while also being an active law enforcement officer. During this time, the business made the transition to sell advanced alarm systems, access control and even camera systems. As the third generation has come in, the technological aspects of the company have taken off. Advanced Alarm Technologies is now excited to provide the latest technologies and most high-tech security options on the market. Today, you’ll always be met with a polite and professional staff as well as the feeling of a family owned business, Mark Garland, Phyllis Pridgen, Gwendolyn Pridgen-Garland, Mark Wells, Jennifer Garland-Wells, Matthew Garland and Kelsey D. Garland are always available and excited to speak with you.
