Northstar Alarm Provides a Home Security System at No Cost for a Family with Autistic Children

Provo, UT (PRWEB) July 01, 2013

Last Wednesday, NorthStar Alarm had one of their technicians, Ryan Forbes, install a home security system for the Artanduaga Family at no cost. The family has three children, two of them have autism. The youngest child has severe autism and receives constant care.

The habitat for humanity home has been in construction since last year. Finishing the home is a great accomplishment for Habitat for Humanity, and a great blessing to the Artanduaga Family.

We are so happy to have a home for our family,” Rubeth Artanduaga said.

One of NorthStar Alarms core values is service. Service is embedded in each employee and NorthStar is always on the lookout for opportunities to give back. NorthStar has participated in past Habitat for Humanity projects, like a revitalization project. However, NorthStar wanted to take things up a notch and donate a security system to a family who really needs it.

We appreciate Northstar’s kind donation of a security system in the new Habitat home in Provo,” said Nancy Mickiewicz, Partnership Coordinator for Habitat for Humanity. “This generous donation will give the family peace of mind now and in the future.”

It took one hour to completely install the system. It is a wireless system with an easy-to-use touch screen panel. NorthStar is covering the monitoring for two years, after that the equipment will still be able to be armed and disarmed. The value of the system is around $ 2500.

Besides just the home security benefits, there is new technology in our systems that can be incredibly beneficial for parents that are simply trying to keep track and protect their children, said NorthStar Alarm CEO Jason Christensen. NorthStar is excited to be able to provide this benefit for the Artanduaga family. We hope that this can help this family as they continue to admirably deal with different life challenges.

The ribbon cutting for the home is tomorrow, July 2nd at 8:30 am.
