DENVER, March 28, 2007 (PRIME NEWSWIRE) -- HS3 Technologies, Inc. (OTCBB:HSTH), a national provider of security solutions has signed a Letter of Intent with Wright-Hennepin Cooperative Electric Association, DBA W-H International Response Center (WHIRC) of Rockford, Minnesota and American Monitoring Services(AMS) of Denver, Colorado for WHIRC to distribute HS3's and AMS security products and services, which include remote video, virtual guard tours and biometric access control to WHIRC's national network of 250 dealers and 40,000 burglar and fire alarm customers.
"The partnering of these companies' products will generate recurring revenue for the companies and their dealers through ongoing monitoring contracts in addition to the sale of products and services," said Mark Lana, President of HS3 Technologies, Inc. "Relationships with qualified partners like WHIRC and AMS will allow us to meet and exceed our sales goals."
Wright-Hennepin is one of the nation's largest public utility corporations and provider of electricity, and through its subsidiary, W-H International Response Center (WHIRC), they are also a national provider of burglar alarm and fire protection installation, service, and monitoring products. Wright-Hennepin has the ability to advance the combined security products into a well established network of 250 experienced dealers who have been serving and providing security products to customers throughout the United States and Canada.
AMS is the first company of its kind to truly offer responsive 'virtual guard' services from a remote centralized command center. Other monitoring companies only monitor alarm triggers or snapshot images and video clips of activity on the premise, usually responding only after an incident has occurred. AMS currently provides virtual guard tours to high-rises in the Denver Metro area increasing efficiencies through the reduction of onsite guards. AMS networking technology makes it possible to provide remote monitoring services that can react 'real-time' with an onsite incident where trained monitoring agents can act accordingly to the information received.
