Alarms - Third Leg Or Third Rail

To be certain, alarms are not all we do here, but to me, it is an integral part of the security equation. I view alarms, the actual burglar side of things to be the third leg of the security stool. I have seen for years now that there is very little merger or acquistion that includes that part of the stool. It goes on, year after year relatively untouched by these mega mergers. It goes on, year after year, relatively untouched by integration. Why is it that roughly one third of anyone's security platform gets so little notice or inclusion?
