What were you up to back in 1985? Here are some examples of what was happening then to jog your memory…
The Nintendo Entertainment system was released on US Shores and Microsoft released the first version of Windows. “We Are the World” was recorded by USA for Africa and Coca-Cola released the New Coke. Rock Me Amadeus and Take On Me were playing on the radio. Moonlighting, The Golden Girls and Growing Pains were on primetime (remember watching commercials?). Back to the Future and The Goonies were playing on the big screen.
Here’s where it gets depressing: Keira Knightley, Kaley Cuoco and Michael Phelps were born in 1985. Ahem, back to happier thoughts: Alarm Engineering installed a burglar alarm for it’s first customer in Salisbury in 1985.
It’s stunning to think about how much has radically changed since 1985. With the advancement of technology and the dramatic ups and downs in the economy, many companies have come and gone. Our team here at Alarm Engineering is so thankful that we are celebrating 30 years of serving our friends and neighbors here on Delmarva. Thank you for your loyalty to Alarm Engineering, we are fortunate to count you among our family here.
Back in 1985, alarm systems relied on phone lines and video systems were reserved for only the largest businesses with big budgets. Now, your alarm system can communicate wirelessly using cell towers and you can check in on live video of your kids, pet, or aging parent right from your smartphone. A lot has changed in the alarm industry, but our commitment to you, our valued customer has always been our mission.
We will be sharing some photos and memories of the past thirty years throughout the year. Please share any stories or memories on our Facebook page, tweet us @Alarm_Engineer, write in to [email protected] or give us a call at 410-546-2210. We love to hear from you!
Thank you for the loyalty of all of our customers who make this celebration possible.
