Ridgewood Apartments- Grand Forks, ND

Surveillance installations

We completed a custom surveillance system for a customer in Grand Forks, ND earlier this week. The owners of the Apartment complex have been customers at their home on Gull Lake for several years. In a recent conversation while servicing the security system at their home on Gull Lake they mentioned the trouble they have experienced finding a qualified installer to make the surveillance system work properly. The system had been poorly installed and the equipment was low quality.

 Our trained installers removed the existing system, cleaned up the wiring, mounting hardware and installed new quality surveillance equipment. The new 16 camera color DVR has a high capacity memory and is able to be viewed on any computer or smart phone.

 

All of the indoor cameras were replaced and new Advanced dome Pan Tilt and Zoom (PTZ) cameras were installed. This allows for better viewing of the parking and entry areas by allowing the cameras to scan and run tours of the areas. The images of the surveillance system are excellent.

 

The installation was completed in two days under the estimate and budget. The customers are amazed with the features and quality. Our installers also replaced the security system in the maintenance shop with a new DMP XT30 controls featuring a cellular communicator. This allowed the owners to get rid of that phone line and save an additional $750.00 per year on operating costs.

Trident Seafood Project

Custom design and fabrication

The Trident Seafood Security Project is going very well. The wiring has been completed and we completing installation of the hardware on the access and surveillance systems. We recently powered up and programmed part of the access control system and have the badge design, creation, and printing underway. Things are really taking shape and everyone is excited as we near completion of the systems.

We  recently installed a custom designed and fabricated access turnstile. This will regulate employees as they enter production of the facility. Knowing who is in the facility at all times is critical to the integrity of the food product and the safety of the employees.

 

The access system is by Keri Access and is custom built with Mercury firmware and software to allow for the custom programmable features required for this installation. Since there are a variety of door types throughout the facility, all of the locking hardware required custom installation. There is nothing cookie cutter about this project.

 Many of the interior and exterior cameras are installed and running. The image views are amazing on the new equipment by Nuvico. We will be installing the advanced view cameras throughout the production areas over the next week.

Brainerd Jaycees Park Surveillance Installation

Brainerd Jaycees Park

Midwest Security & Fire recently worked with Brainerd Parks & Recreation to install surveillance cameras at Jaycees Park in Brainerd.

The park had experienced vandalism in recent months to the buildings, skate park, and parking lot. The costs of cleanup and fears of future damages had city officials considering several alternatives including closure. 

 

Midwest Security & Fire met with Brainerd Parks & Recreation Staff to discuss current security and surveillance options, demonstrated products, and provided a detailed estimate for materials and labor installation.

 

Since Midwest Security & Fire proudly supports the community and organizations working with children, youth, and families, we  provided a generous discount on materials and labor for the project. Installation has been completed and it has been reported that no damage or vandalism has occurred since the system was installed.

It has been my pleasure to serve you Mr. Bailey.

I  just found out today that a longtime customer and friend Chuck Bailey past away suddenly on February 24, 2012. The Baileys are from Plymouth Minnesota so I did not see the obituary until I heard the news today. I wish that I could have attended the memorial service for this great man.

Chuck and I go back around 20 years or so.  For over 23 years our family has provided the security for Chuck’s family. My father Jack Brodmarkle, my brother Ed Brodmarkle, and all of us here worked with Chuck.  I know everyone built a good friendship with him just as I did. 

Since Chuck lived in Plymouth, he would call me to find out what the weather was like, how much snow was on the ground, if  the ice was off the lake, or the get a referral on something he needed done. I learned quickly that when Chuck called we were going to talk a little business and then catch up on things going on in our lives. He relied on me for his security services, but also to be his connection to what was happening up North. Chuck knew everyone here at our company on a first name basis.  He knew my father, my brother, my children, my interests, and more. He was a really nice man who cared about people and what they did. He was always courteous, fair and had a great attitude.

The passing of Mr. Bailey has me thinking  how blessed we are here at Midwest Security & Fire to have so many great customers, many who have become very good friends. We will continue to provide the best security service for the Bailey family and wish them our sincere condolences on the passing of their husband and father.

I am going to miss Chuck’s phone calls asking about the weather. Rest in peace Chuck.

Made in the USA

Custom Security for your Home or Business

A year and a half ago we decided to search out another brand of security system because we were not happy with the direction of our existing line . After an exhaustive search we found our new line and it was right in front of us for the last 30 years. DMP Security Systems is designed, engineered, manufactured, and supported in Springfield, Mo. It is some of the best security equipment I have ever seen in my 20 years in this industry. While DMP is not in Brainerd or Minnesota, it is in the USA and much closer than China or Mexico. It showed me that it is possible for electronics manufacturing to happen in the USA
