Home Security – Scams
In 2010, GE sold its Security business to UTC Fire & Security Americas Corporation, Inc. (“UTCFSA”).
GE doesn’t manufacture or sell home security systems.
Part of that sale included the right to continue to manufacture GE-branded home security equipment. Since that time, GE has not manufactured or sold home security equipment or systems and UTCFSA ceased making, marketing or selling any GE-branded home security equipment in 2016.
It has come to GE’s attention that there have been telemarketing calls and door-to-door sales people saying they work for GE Security and attempting to sell home security systems. This is a scam. These people do not work for GE or UTCFSA.
GE and UTCFSA do not
– manufacture, market or sell GE-branded home security equipment or systems
– offer, market or sell professional home security monitoring services
– sell GE-branded security equipment or systems directly to consumers
– place any telemarketing calls, or
– authorize third parties to place telemarketing calls to consumers about the sale of home security equipment or systems.
There are no “authorized dealers” of GE and/or UTCFSA authorized to use the GE brand to market home security equipment or services directly to consumers.
