Hello! My name is Ryan Sharp, owner of Direct Protection, your home security specialist. What makes me different from other alarm companies? Service.
While attending college at Brigham Young University, I often walked by a massive concrete block with the etched phrase: “Enter to Learn, Go Forth to Serve.” Deep down, I felt that the University motto explained exactly why I was there: I wanted to be one who served. And I’ve found a way to do that through my company, Direct Protection.
While looking for a way to pay for my education, a close friend invited me to join him for the summer between semesters. His plan was to sell home security alarm systems for ADT. I was hesitant to join him at first as I knew little about the industry, but I agreed, quickly learning all I could. That summer in San Ramon, California I found that not only did I excel at working with people and educating them on home security, but I also loved what I was doing and wanted to make it my profession.
Thus my dream to start my own alarm business was born.
After graduating I followed through with that dream and started Direct Protection in San Jose, California. Nineteen years later I still enjoy meeting new people every day and helping them feel more secure.
