Tavares Hunter has been with Monitronics for more than 14 years, and was named Regional Account Manager of the Year in 2014 and 2015. He has an extensive knowledge of the security industry, particularly when it comes to dealer development, and he has a good feel for what works and what doesn’t. We were recently able to sit down with Tavares and talk about the Monitronics security system he uses in his home.
What kind of alarm system do you use in your home? Currently,I have a Honeywell Tuxedo Touch system. It has the ability to control my thermostat, locks, lighting, cameras, and more.
Why did you choose this system? I chose this system primarily because it was compatible with the previous system I owned.
What part of your security system do you use the most? The cameras. I am able to pull up the live video footage at any time of day through my iPhone. Luckily, I don’t usually have much activity going on in my house to watch, so I mostly just use it to spy on my dogs.
What would you like to see as the “next big thing” in the security industry? I think the next big thing should be pet monitoring! People really view their pets as members of the family; therefore, incorporating some kind of pet monitoring device into the security world today could really take off.
