Ron Ross


Ron began his career in the alarm industry in 1979. Using his extensive knowledge of construction he launched Vigilante Security, Inc., a leading Michigan alarm company and later Michigan Monitoring Service to supply central station alarm monitoring to other independent alarm installers. The two companies expanded home alarm services to commercial, industrial, and government markets growing to over 40,000 accounts. Ron’s latest endeavor, Command Alarm Monitoring, was conceived to offer years of experience, the expertise of his staff and access to a complete portfolio of alarm monitoring services to independent alarm installers nationwide.
