, a five year old home and commercial security business, is venturing into sales of other electronics, including some designed to keep homes secure and operating from a computer or other electronic controller.
The company's latest venture, Technical Living, will open in a prominent - and vacant - storefront on Kercheval Avenue in the Village shopping district in Grosse Pointe.
City Manager Peter Dame says the plan approved by the city in September has the front of the store, which was formerly an upscale boutique selling women and children's clothing, shoes and accessories, is to renovate the store that sells high end electronics and security systems in one spot.
Pointe Alarm's owners described the electronics end of the store a something similar to Sharper Image, Dame says. The front of the store will be dedicated to electronics. The back will be for security and home control systems.
