Today, ADT (NYSE: ADT) announced the Food and Beverage Solutions Bundle as part of the company’s strategic plan to deliver customized security and automation solutions to address the most common needs and concerns of business owners within a particular industry. In addition to the recently announced ADT Retail Solutions Bundle, the company also has further plans to deliver bundled solutions for small business owners of clinics, doctor’s or professional services offices and mechanical shops.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, approximately one in six Americans falls ill each year from foodborne diseases, underscoring major concern for small business owners in the food and beverage industry. Taking the wide gamut of threats into consideration, the new Food and Beverage Solutions Bundle is intended to help solve the most pressing issues that keep restaurant and bar owners up at night – from food safety and energy usage, to the safety of their customers and employees, and the security of their cash and other assets.
“The protection of small business owners and their assets is our bread and butter, and always a core objective in serving our customers,” said Luis Orbegoso, President of ADT Small Business. “With the increased threats faced by the food and beverage industry, ranging from food spoilage to sweethearting and inventory theft, our latest offering addresses these concerns head-on, and meets the specific needs of our customers in the food service business.”
The customized portfolio includes the ability to remotely control small appliances and monitor motion detection, door and window entry and video surveillance with event-triggered notifications. Additionally, smart thermostat features enable climate management throughout the premise, while freezer and refrigerator sensors can send alerts when temperature levels spike and breach a pre-programmed range, reducing the potential for food spoilage and increasing overall peace of mind.
