Always Protected is a local authorized ADT Dealer underneath the Safe Streets, USA umbrella. Mike Mess, the CEO of Always Protected, has successfully positioned this company to have a nationwide presence with over 1,000 real estate agents.
The real estate agents are currently enrolled in the company’s partner program, helping the brand continue a strong, aggressive growth plan that Mess has envisioned since launching this company.
Headquartered in Woodbridge, with a second location being launched in Norfolk on April 4, his goal in 2016 is to launch five additional offices. With their current locations and new to come, they hope to continue their outreach to assist homeowners in protecting their home against burglary, fire, and carbon monoxide emergencies.
A lot of people, when they think of ADT or home security, immediately think of protection against burglary or home invasions.
Mess stated, “What has always stayed close to my heart about this industry is the ability to assist in any emergency most families aren’t prepared for. Our keypads have Emergency Medical, Fire, and Police panics, so in the event a child was home alone, or elderly adults and something were to happen they can simply push a button and get emergency assistance immediately.”
Mess, who grew up in Woodbridge, and spent the first 21 years of his life in our hometown, strongly believes it should be mandated that homeowners have integrated smoke, heat, and carbon monoxide detectors in homes. This type of monitoring can save property and lives.
“To this day, before I go to bed each night, I always visit local news websites, and I’m always in disbelief of how many fires, gas leaks, and burglaries take place. It is so important to take proactive measures to your family’s safety because you can’t plan for an event like that to take place. The best you can do is have your family discuss emergency scenarios and have the protection of a security system that is being monitored by a company like ADT.”
Always Protected goes above and beyond for homeowners when they activate their security system. Because of their unique business model, they can waive the cost of equipment and installation for their customers.
“Now-a-days we can accommodate everyone’s needs because we can do everything from basic security to complete home automation,” stated Mess. Our company will always offer a free security consultation for every client because we understand the importance of educating homeowners on the importance of our life-saving devices.
As a way to give back to the community, spread fire awareness, and taking preventive measures with families across our area, Always Protected is going to donate $50 for every residence in Prince William County that gets installed to the Kyle Wilson Memorial Scholarship Endowment, via the George Mason University Foundation.
Wilson, 24, was the first Prince William County firefighter to die in the line of duty on April 17, 2007. Wilson was trapped after he went inside burning house in Woodbridge to search for occupants who had already made it out safely.
Always Protected will also provide a monitored smoke and heat detector. Both detectors, along with the cost of any other equipment, and the charge for installation, are free for all homeowners who want to take a proactive stance with fire protection and enter into a monitoring agreement with Always Protected, Safe Streets, USA, and ADT.
“I’m truly blessed to be in the position that I’m in, and the least I could do is give back to the community I was born and raised in,” said Mess.
