ADT / Google Without Barriers-To-Entry.

Some of us believe Google bought a piece of ADT to get a better understanding, from the inside, of the legislative barriers-to-entry, that has shielded a “good-ole-boys-club” for many decades. Without that legislative shield, several thousand remote monitored alarm providers, including ADT, Vivint, Monitronics, Rapid Response, will be forced to re-purpose of go away. The new guys like Google, with lots of muscle and little patience, can expedite the objective and pick up the pieces. Municipal law is quickly evolving to support that observation.
