Chris Wetzel and others founded Intertech in 2000. Wetzel is now the executive vice president of the company. In three years, the company had revenues of $4 million with a huge list of business customers. By 2005, the company was focused on sustainability, focusing on business and large residential dwellings. By 2006, the company’s revenue had grown to $18.5 million, bolstered by 110 employees. In 2007, Intertech was ranked as the 41st largest security company by SDM magazine, the staple periodical for the security industry.
Intertech Security safeguards people, data, and assets. They are an independent company and remain vendor neutral, helping provide affordable security options for its clients. Intertech can provide security solutions for all levels of business, but specializes in the enterprise-level business. They even have nursing home and hospital capabilities, offering nursing home call systems and infant monitoring systems.

We felt that Intertech Global Security had the best monitoring systems for businesses around, boasting a comprehensive and advanced control center. Their Global Security Operations Center (GSOC) is UL and CSAA Five Star Diamond certified. Staffed 24/7 by a team of 19 professionals, this robust, redundant work center boasts technology that provides cost-effective, and efficient security.
While we couldn’t get a complete listing of products that might help a business, we found a complete listing of manufacturers. For burglary alarms and fire alarms, this listing included the following:
For video monitoring, we found Flir, Safeguards Technology, LLC, and Video IQ. We also found nurse calls, patient wandering, and infant security from West-Call and Elpas. Even though Intertech doesn’t deal with home security, we found that they could provide security and medical alerts for nursing homes, hospitals, and other medical/residential facilities.
We also found consulting services that help place great security systems in facilities. System Evaluation Services help with current systems, while risk assessment and design integration services help develop policies and procedures for working with a new system. We also found a grant writing service as part of their consulting services that might help a public facility get government money to better an existing system.
We wish that Intertech provided private residences with security systems. We didn’t find this out until we called in. When we asked about business and facility plans, we were given the typical assessment appointment sales pitch. Intertech, like many business providers in the industry, wants to get in and see your business before they will quote you on a system.
Another concern that we had with Intertech was the residential services that were advertised on their website. We called two of their locations and were told that residential services were not provided by Intertech. However, this concern was mitigated when we found out about their great business services.
Also, we would like to see case studies and names of clients that Intertech has helped. When we reviewed Kastle, we were able to see how Kastle was able to assess the individual needs of its clients. Also, listing clients helps establish the reputability of a business alarm and security company.
