    2nd to ADT (8mil), and ahead of Brinks (800k), is Protection One (1.3
    mil). http://www.protectionone.com/

    And this is in terms of how many customers they have.

    How come there aren't any messages here about this company?

    Who knows, Monitronics has managed to get some additional funding so
    Protection One may also find some if the deal is right. The fact that the
    top five security companies are all for sale doesn't suggest much confidence
    in the industry.
    Of course, before the top Tyco exec took off with the $600 million we all
    thought Tyco would buy the other four.

    Every company is up for sale if the price is right but ......

    Tyco: Nobody knows if they will sell ADT or not, its all speculation, they
    may sell parts of it or it's other security businesses

    Protection One: Ruined by inept management and too rapid growth that IS up
    for sale and will be sold either this month or next.

    Brinks: Not up for sale at the moment, doubt if it will be anytime soon

    Monitronics: Any talk of sale is speculation

    Honeywell: They ARE for sale because Honeywell wants to concentrate on
    manufacturing not because it's unprofitable (that I know of)

    Better yet who's got the deep pockets to buy the residential/small
    commerical division?
    Yea I can imagine that since the brains at Westar let the original P1
    control the new merged company
    Hell I doubt that stops a sale, look at Well's Fargo and anyone else with
    proprietary panels. Remember that often the brains at the top of the
    purchasing company aren't always tech savy
    Thats always a concern
    Or another P1
