|Market leaders: |

Innovative, Emerging, and Disruptive Companies that may influence the future direction of the industry.
Innovators and Disruptors in adjacent industries that may also affect the Security Systems Services industry.
We believe that technology trends are creating significant change in our industry. Innovation has lowered the barriers to entry in home automation, and new business models and competitors have emerged. We believe that a combination of increasing customer interest in lifestyle and business productivity and technology advancements will support the increasing penetration of interactive services and home/business automation. We are focused on extending our leadership position in the monitored security industry while also growing our share of the fast-growing home/business automation industry. The security systems market in the United States and Canada remains highly competitive and fragmented, with a number of major firms and thousands of smaller regional and local companies. The high fragmentation of the industry is primarily the result of relatively low barriers to entering the business in local geographies and the availability of wholesale monitoring (whereby smaller companies outsource their monitoring to operations that provide monitoring services but do not maintain the customer relationship). We believe that our principal competitors within the security systems market are Monitronics International, Inc., Vivint, Inc., Protection One, Inc., Comcast Corporation, AT Aronson Security Group
