Your donation supports vital alarm industry research and education initiatives.


The Alarm Industry Research & Educational Foundation (AIREF) is a tax-exempt foundation representing the electronic life safety, security and systems industry under the auspices of the Electronic Security Association (ESA).


AIREF serves initiatives critical to public safety, consumers and the alarm industry. Through research and education, AIREF provides the
resources and statistics that public safety officials can use to better understand and utilize our industry in their effort to protect and serve our communities.


Consumers can benefit from AIREF’s research through data that is collected on the effectiveness of alarms. The dealers/integrators,
distributors, manufacturers and monitoring stations will gain an advantage from these types of studies not only in potentially increased acceptance of their products, but through improved relations with both the public sector and the end user.
