These folks were from out of town. They are required to have Vendor's
Permits. They said different cities are stricter, but they knew that all cities
have such a law, and thought Durham wasn't so strict.
While they had ADT all over them, the card they gave me says SecureWatch,
with a website _www.securewatch.net_ (http://www.securewatch.net)
That took me to lots of other stuff, perhaps the most reliable being
Or maybe this is more the true picture
The address on the card is 1913 East Firetower Rd Greenville, NC
That results in only this one Google result
In short, I don't know who they heck these folks were.... but I know they
need a Vendor's Permit! And the stricter Durham enforces that law, the
better we become.

Would a business license from the City not cover this? ADT has been in
business over on Old Chapel Hill Road for years. I used them for 20+ years
before switching to CPIseveral years ago.
