Dillard Alarm Company
Security has come a long way since Dillard Alarm first opened its doors in July of 1976. Smartphones soon brought us smart homes, and now it seems like almost every household device is connected to the internet. Luckily, your local alarm company has done their due diligence and kept up with the latest trends and technology in home and business security.
Founded by Jimmy and Dorothy Dillard, it doesn’t get more “mom and pop” than Dillard Alarm. It began with a single vehicle and their family room, where Dorothy answered the phone and handled contracts and bills while Jimmy took care of installations and service calls. Their son, Troy, began helping his father at the age of 12. He would spend his weekends and summer breaks tagging along on installations and service calls, soaking up everything he could while on the job. He enjoyed meeting and speaking with different people, as well as seeing the smiles of happy customers after knowing their homes and businesses were safe.
It was during this time that Dillard Alarm’s simple, straight-forward philosophy began to take shape: “do what you say you’re going to do, when you say you’re going to do it.” Dillard’s prompt service and affordable, professionally-monitored alarm systems quickly won customers over. In 2002, Dillard Alarm was selected to become one of Honeywell’s Authorized Preferred Dealers, where they have been a “Platinum” performer and received Honeywell’s National Award in Community Service the last several years.
Dillard Alarm has also been a National Award winner in commercial sales and received a Circle of Excellence Award. The Dillard team regularly attends regional and national conventions and is one of a handful of alarm companies in the nation to test and provide input on new and emerging products. Since enjoying tremendous growth over the years, the company is always looking for great people to join their team of highly-trained and motivated employees.
For Troy, Sheila, and their boys, Lake Anna was love at first sight. After purchasing a home at Lake Anna, they have enjoyed meeting and getting to know all of the residents in this wonderful community. They have become members of the Lake Anna Business Partnership and the Lake Anna Chamber of Commerce.
You’ll also find Troy and his son Alexander at either the Lake Anna Volunteer Rescue Squad, Bumpass Fire Department, or Fredericksburg Volunteer Rescue Squad (of which Troy is a life member), spending their evenings, weekends, and holidays responding to calls for assistance. Troy’s younger son, Bryce, spends his summers out of school helping with installations and service calls at Dillard Alarm as the third generation of the family working in the company.
