PA Prestige Alarm Logo.

Eddie founded Prestige Alarm & Specialty Products in 1995 right out of college. Initially, the company focused on UL certified fire alarm installations but quickly expanded to UL security protection. Today, they are an Alabama State Licensed Fire Alarm Company and Security Firm servicing commercial and residential customers. Their services include engineered fire systems, intrusion systems, access control, CCTV, inspections and other complex detection systems.

Prestige has extensive experience in providing critical systems for judges, penitentiaries and government facilities. They are a Gamewell FCI dealer and maintain their own AES wireless mesh network. The biggest area for growth is commercial fire with approximately two-thirds of their new business coming from that sector.

After 15 years of steady growth, Eddie purchased a warehouse and converted it into a 12,000 square foot headquarters for Prestige. The new facility is state-of-the-art and houses the corporate office, service and installation office and meets the needs of their growing commercial security customer base.


Before transferring my accounts, I was with “just a monitoring company.” They did ok, but they didn’t provide any assistance growing my business. Rapid really knows how to support the local independent security dealer. Plus, they are friends to us, not just another company that we do business with. That’s important to us.
