Security and protection services provider The ADT Corporation (ADT - Analyst Report) recently announced plans to deliver customized security and automation solutions to the food and beverage industry.

ADT’s new Food and Beverage Solutions Bundle can help business owners control the environment through thermostat facilities as well as monitor the critical temperatures of food inventory, thus preventing spoilage. To reduce the chances of food spoilage, the refrigerator sensors can send alerts when temperature levels increase and violate a pre-programmed range. It helps small business owners to remotely control small appliances and monitor motion detection, door and window entry and video surveillance, which are likely to reduce the risk of stock damage and thefts.

The new product is well poised to capitalize on the growth potential as small business owners increasingly seek protection and automation of their business operations. The bundled approach meets the challenges of food safety and energy usage, employee safety and the security of cash and other assets and gives owners the peace of mind to help monitor and manage their store even in their absence. ADT also intends to deliver bundled solutions for small business owners of clinics, professional services, offices and mechanical shops in the imminent future.

Headquartered in Boca Raton, FL, ADT offers electronic security products along with a wide range of interactive home and business automation and monitoring services for residences and small businesses in the U.S. and Canada.

ADT’s electronic security and home/business automation solutions primarily include installation and monitoring of residential and small business security and premises automation systems. These products are designed to detect intrusion; control access; react to movement, smoke, carbon monoxide, flooding, temperature and other environmental conditions and hazards; and address personal emergencies, such as injuries, medical emergencies or incapacitation.

ADT currently carries a Zacks Rank #3 (Hold). Other stocks that are worth considering in the industry include McGraw Hill Financial, Inc. (MHFI - Analyst Report), Stantec Inc. (STN - Snapshot Report) and FTI Consulting, Inc (FCN - Analyst Report), each carrying a Zacks Rank #2 (Buy).
