DPS vs TDLR

In years past the TBFAA has had discussions about supporting a move of the alarm regulatory body from DPS to the TDLR. Those discussions seem to have surfaced again because of a recommendation in the DPS Sunset Committee Report and a recent TDLR sting on unlicensed contractors. The TDLR may have the ability to do some things better than DPS presently does, but I’m certain there would be plenty of downsides with the TDLR that we don’t have with DPS.

In my opinion, our situation is similar to being married to DPS for 20+ years. Trying to divorce her to get with the TDLR might be nice at first, but we will more than likely end up single and have both agencies angry at us. It just isn’t worth it. DPS isn’t perfect, but we know each other pretty well, we’re getting along and we have the ability to make things better. I believe even talking about moving is dangerous. If you don’t believe me, mention to your wife that you’re looking at another woman and see what happens.

I don’t support having this conversation and I certainly don’t support moving us to the TDLR. As the HGCAA President, I intend to oppose these discussions and any efforts to move us. I will also use my position as the TBFAA VP of Fire to try and convince the Board to drop this. Please contact me ASAP with your feedback so I can best represent Houston.

August 2018 Message from the HGCAA President – John Helweg

Our July meeting at ECD went well. I was missing several of my board members, but we managed to make do. I’d like to thank ECD for hosting us and providing great food. Please remember, our associate members support us, so please support them.

We discussed the DPS PSB meeting and one of the cases the Board heard. We also discussed a letter I asked RenEarl Bowie to draft on DPS letterhead that states that alarm sales/companies are regulated by DPS under Texas Occupation Code 1702. This is important because some Municipalities/Cities/Counties have been issuing solicitation permits to non-licensed companies which, in my opinion, gives citizens a false sense of security. I intend to distribute that letter and another letter on HGCAA letterhead to Houston PD and our surrounding Municipalities, Cities & Counties.

Our guest speaker was Danny Cranford with Pro-Vigil they are a video monitoring solution that aims to replace guards. Their technology sounds very impressive. If you’re not coming to the meetings, you’re missing out on CEU’s, great speakers and lots of inside information.

Our upcoming meeting is August 2nd at Anixter (Tri-Ed) West. Our guest speaker is Tanner Lyman with Agemni. They offer a web based back office solution for managing your customers and their accounts at the monitoring station, in billing & at third party service providers like cellular radios. 

See y’all soon,

John C. Helweg

JULY 2018 Message from the HGCAA President – John Helweg

I hope everyone had a safe and happy 4th of July. Our June meeting went well at ADI Pinemont. Amanda was back and it was great to see her. We also met the new branch manager Matt Wilson. I’d like to thank ADI for hosting us and providing great food. Please remember, our associate members support us, so please support them.

We discussed the DPS Public Safety meeting that TBFAA represented us at and how it went. We discussed one of the articles in last months newsletter about web site optimization for mobile devices and how that can affect your web site placement going forward on search engines. We also gave a reminder to keep your technicians hydrated.

Our guest speaker was Steven Beers with the Growth Coach, Business & Sales Coaching. He had a nice presentation with handouts. He also had his book available. If you’re not coming to the meetings, you’re missing out on CEU’s, great speakers and lots of inside information.

Our upcoming meeting is July 12th at Electronic Custom Distributors. Danny Cranford from Pro-Vigil video monitoring will be our speaker.. Perennial Software was supposed to be here, but they were acquired by another company and the wires got crossed somewhere. I’m working on getting them at a later date.See y’all soon,

June 2018 Message from the HGCAA President – John Helweg

As usual, we had a great meeting in May full of industry information. I’d like to thank Anixter North (formerly Tri-Ed) for hosting us and providing great food. Please remember, our associate members support us, so please support them.

We discussed some of the high points of the Sunset Advisory Commission’s report regarding DPS and the Private Security Board. I’m not happy with their recommendations and I hope that we can prevent any of them coming to fruition legislatively.

This is serious stuff that can greatly affect how our industry progresses in the future. I truly hope you guys are paying attention and will be ready to rally next year when the legislative session kicks off. Simple phone calls can make a big difference in a representative’s vote. They are not security experts, we are! they need our input to make informed decisions. Don’t be shy, for many of us this is our livelihood and retirement plans.

We presented this years HGCAA First Responders Scholarship recipient, Hieu Nguyen, with a well deserved check. His whole family was present to support him. He read his essay and shared his gratitude and appreciation to us. I’d like to thank all the advertisers in our monthly newsletter that purchase ads this year. Their ads have fully funded the scholarship program for the past two years. Please take a moment to thank them for supporting us and our scholarship goals.

Our guest speaker was Aaron Thomas with DMP. He was supposed to give the second half of his How to Sell to Millennials presentation, however we ran out of time. Each month our meetings are so packed with relevant industry information that we could easily be there for a couple of hours. If you’re not coming to the meetings, you’re missing out on CEU’s, great speakers and lots of inside information.

Our upcoming meeting is June 14th at ADI Pinemont and our guest speaker will be Steven Beers with the Growth Coach, Business & Sales Coaching.

See y’all soon,

John C. Helweg

June 2018 TBFAA UPDATE BY PRESIDENT – KELLY RYAN

Even though summer hasn’t officially started, it sure is hot outside! The same can be said about the upcoming 2019 Texas legislative session. While many have reviewed the Sunset Commission’s initial recommendations for the Department of Public Safety and the Private Security Board, we need to make sure that all association members are aware of the recommendations. Although the final recommendations have not yet been released, once they are, there will be bills filed that will have an impact on the alarm industry in Texas.

Now is the time to “get the word out” about the possible changes resulting from the Sunset Commission. The TBFAA will be going to the local associations during July and August to gather input and support from members. While there are items in the recommendations that we can support, we oppose reducing the PSB to an “advisory committee”. We also oppose the deregulation of salespeople, participating owners & shareholders, and managers; and while we support a more efficient licensing process, we want to keep alarm technicians affiliated with their employer.

For those keeping-up with the Sunset Commission recommendations, I applaud your effort and appreciate your help! For those that aren’t keeping-up with the recommendations, I ask you to get involved! If we are going to have anything to say about the future of security licensing in Texas, we must act together with the same message.

Now is also the time to make your reservations for the TBFAA 2018 Convention & Trade Show in Austin. The final recommendations from the Sunset Commission should be released just before our convention, and I’m certain it will be a hot topic! The convention is October 11 th thru the 12 th with golf on the 10 th . Make your plans to attend today.

For more information on the TBFAA 2018 Convention & Trade Show, please visit tbfaa.org. For more information on the Sunset Commission, please visit sunset.texas.gov, and to reach the TBFAA, please email president@tbfaa.org.

Sincerely,

Kelly Ryan

May 2018 Message from the HGCAA President – John Helweg

I’m back from my 4 day cruise-cation and we hit the ground running. The very next day we had a TBFAA Board meeting in Austin in conjunction with the Central Texas Chapter. Van flew in from Hawaii and meet me there. Their meeting went well. They had an amazing guest speaker. Quite possibly one of the best I’ve ever heard. His name was Richard Hellen. I’m gonna try to get him as one of our guest speakers.

We had a great meeting in April. I’d like to thank ECD for hosting us and providing food. We had a full house. Please remember, our associate members support us, so please support them.

Our guest speaker was RenEarl Bowie with DPS. He spoke with us about TOPS & Sunset among other things. The room was full, we had new members sign up and we had several new faces.

Our upcoming meeting is May 10th at Anixter North. Please don’t forget to RSVP. Our guest speaker is Aaron Thomas with DMP giving the second half of his How to Sell to Millennials presentation.

See y’all soon,

John C. Helweg

May 2018 TBFAA UPDATE BY PRESIDENT – KELLY RYAN

The Sunset Commission has released their report on the Department of Public Safety. In the report, there is a lot of detail as it pertains to the Private Security Board, and there are suggested changes that will directly affect private security companies.

For example, the report states that “Overregulation and Unclear Authority Hamper DPS’ Private Security Program,” and as it relates to the PSB, the report states “having a separate board impedes efficient regulation of the private security industries,” and that the PSB be changed to an “advisory committee.”

The Sunset report also recommends deregulating 10 registrations that includes security salespeople and qualified managers.

If you have not had a chance to review the recommendations of the Sunset Commission, I highly encourage you to review the document. The report is accessible through www.sunset.texas.gov or you can contact me at president@tbfaa.org and I’ll forward the report to you.

For those that don’t like the recommendations of the Sunset Commission, the time to act is now. Get involved with your local association as well as the TBFAA. Our legislative team is working on a plan to protect the interests of the alarm industry in Texas and your comments and involvement is needed.

Stay informed! Be sure to “like” the TBFAA Facebook group and follow @TxBFAA on Twitter. Make your plans to attend the upcoming TBFAA convention in Austin on October 11 th & 12 th . (October 10 th is golf!)

Sincerely,

Kelly Ryan

GREAT ARTICLE ON WHEN TO TELL YOUR EMPLOYEES YOU ARE SELLING YOUR COMPANY!


As of June 1, 2018, Verizon will no longer support the activation of new CDMA modules. To better support our Partners, Alarm.com has worked with Verizon to ensure that all existing CDMA modules in the field will continue to signal until December 31, 2022. Additionally, the Alarm.com Account Recycle feature will continue to be available for previously installed CDMA modules.

For the greatest customer life and value, we highly recommend the use of LTE modules whenever and wherever possible. Alarm.com offers LTE modules for virtually every panel we support. And with faster speeds, greater data capacity and extended network life, installing LTE modules now delivers a better customer experience and minimizes the need for future truck rolls.

Please contact your Account Executive with any questions.
