Meet the Face Behind Alarm System Plus

I’m Emily A. Stong, the proud owner of Alarm System Plus. I look forward to sharing my story. I hope that you will enjoy getting to know me better.

My late father, Howard Mark Lang, worked for Guardian Alarm for several years and established Alarm System Plus in 1990 with three partners. 

In 2000, my dad bought the business from his partners. He then singlehandedly built the company and consolidated our position as a leading home automation and security system provider in Sterling Heights, Michigan. 

After years of dedication and twenty-eight years of hard work, my dad passed away, leaving me and my husband Rick to manage the business.

Having personally worked for my father and been a part of the business for over nine years, I can see technology has grown immensely, with advancements in camera systems and processing capabilities. As a business, we have similarly strived to broaden our horizons and expand the services we provide.

The part of the business I most enjoy is serving our customers. I also take great pride in working with my teams in the field, being in the office, getting work done, answering phones, emails, and answering customer queries. I am thankful for the many privileges of being my own boss but remember that the consistent dedication of my employees is what makes the process enjoyable.

I also believe in working hard and playing even harder and find that life and the many challenges that come our way are achievable and even welcome.

As an individual, I believe what sets me apart from others is my honesty and integrity, along with my leadership skills and consistent diligence that ensures rapid growth, builds trust, and genuinely benefits my community.

I attribute my success to my father’s foresight, hard work, and the risks he took to start the business. Rick stepping in after Howard, my father passed, also incredibly helped lessen the burden and keep us on track.

Seeing hundreds of happy customers and ensuring their lives are safe, smooth, and convenient has given me immense satisfaction over the years and continues to inspire me to do more for my clientele. 

When I am not at work, I love playing and taking care of my two adorable mini dachshunds, Mocha and Bruno. I also enjoy going out to do fun activities with my husband and daughter Lily. To stay active, I enjoy rollerblading, running, snowboarding, and just working out in general.

I have enjoyed sharing my story about the things that matter to me and how they influence my business.
