“ADT is the only organization that has been an exhibitor throughout ASIS International’s 50-year history of Annual Seminars,” said Shirley Pierini, president of ASIS International. “We are proud to recognize ADT for its loyal and steadfast support of our organization.”

ADT was one of 11 vendors that exhibited at the first show held in Washington, D.C. in 1955, when the latest security solutions were limited to business applications and consisted mainly of sensors, locks and manual alarms.

At this year’s ASIS conference, ADT will showcase technologies that go beyond traditional security applications for homes and businesses including video auditing, remote guard tours and video alarm verification, which provide businesses with detailed reports and video documentation of their operations.

In addition, the company will highlight RFID technologies that address inventory management in the retail supply chain.

“Fifty years ago when ASIS began, it would have been hard to imagine the technological evolution that has transformed the security industry,” said Mike Snyder, president of ADT Security Services, Inc.

“The security solutions of today can not only help our customers better secure their businesses and employees but help them operate their businesses better.
