  • Neighborhood Cooperative Home Security Company

    Thomas Stanton



    Volunteers will help develop a complete business model for a home security company that works with neighbors to monitor security, at low cost and while keeping dollars circulating in the most local economy. Traditional home security companies require substantial monthly monitoring fees, but they are effectively sweeping those dollars out of the local economy while providing little value added to the neighborhoods they serve. An alternative model is a cooperative (member-owned) business, where as much as practical of all the business activity is localized.
