It’s no secret that security is becoming more important than ever before. People are taking advantage of technology to protect their property, and the market for security is trending upward. Just ask Nathan Zautcke, managing partner of Security 101, a national integrator for the electronic security sector based out of Canton. “Technology is always changing and getting better,” he says. “We have a lot to protect. The systems are in place to do it easier than it has ever been done before. But a lot of times we need to educate the end user. They aren’t just cameras anymore; it’s things like sound masking, too.”

Zautcke says Security 101’s customer base is mostly commercial businesses but does include high-end residential applications, too. “We have installed sound masking in as little as a 1,000 square foot suite with one door on card access and a camera,” he adds. “We’ve installed 400 cameras in a nine-building campus with 50 doors. Our team of different crews is built for small and large installations.”

The fact that Security 101 is a national company is a distinct advantage for Zautcke and his staff. “We have a national presence, the leader in products and decades of knowledge amongst our owners,” he says. “We have the freedom and ability to sell many enterprise level products, at best pricing, on a national level but with the quick response and less bureaucracy than a large integrator. This gives us a very unique niche in the market place. There is no other security company that goes to market in the manner which we do. Period. You get the best of both worlds, big company with local ownership.”

Zautcke and his partner bought into the Security 101 franchise and opened the Canton operation’s doors in April 2012. Security 101 uses its facility in Canton to stage its jobs but also has partner offices in Detroit, Kalamazoo, and Indianapolis, servicing several states. “We are not only one of the top integrators in the country; we have a long and extensive background in other services unique to this Detroit based branch,” Zautcke says. “We are also the leader in sound masking for the tri-state area. On top of all this, we are fun to work with.”
