The security industry is under attack by buzzwords, and the Internet of Things (IoT) is one of a few leading the assault.
Are your physical security devices attached to the same network as your sensitive business data?
Whenever I receive a cover story from Vince Ricco I listen, and I learn. I’ve known Vince for quite a while, and when he asks if your security devices are connected to your sensitive business data, it really makes you think.
Customers, channel partners, reps and industry friends and supporters recognize leader in wireless systems.
For exacting audio installation checks, designed to IEC651 and ANSI S1.4 standards.
For every organization, one of the first steps in providing safety and security is knowing at all times who is in the building. This is true for protecting people, property, or assets, and whether the building is a business, school, hospital or any other location.
Americans want to be safe and the FCC is helping. The FCC reserves valuable radio frequencies for public safety authorities that can be used for Ultra-Reliable wireless video surveillance.
Faster camera discovery, new camera integrations and more.
Company educating installers on the perils of using knock-off REELEX bulk wire cartons while vowing to continue to pursue measures against patent and trademark offenders.
New Jersey recently switched to digital testing, bringing a host of new security concerns with it.
Cable certifier, verifier and tester allow network administrators to confirm correct installation of copper and fiber network cabling and troubleshoot existing analog and IP video surveillance system installations.
When selecting a PoE switch for an IP surveillance network, system integrators should be aware that not all switches are created equal. PoE switch manufacturers offer a variety of different features that can impact functionality and pricing.
The themes for VMS product development can be summarized as bigger, better and faster. In 2015, look for capabilities that range from those which deliver more information to architectures that optimize VMS performance on purpose built hardware offerings.
In a recent Hollywood comedy, Jason Segel’s character uttered the famous line, “Nobody understands the cloud. It’s a mystery.” And yet, all of us have been using the cloud for years: for online banking, online shopping, social media, email, sharing family photos and a host of other activities.
Today’s integrated systems are generating more data than ever before. For some perspective on just how much data we’re talking about, consider that from the dawn of civilization to 2003, humankind created two exabytes of data.
The best way to make any decision is by collecting as much data as possible. The more information you have, the better your decision will be.
The network-based physical security industry has matured rapidly over the past few years. As the technology and other components of security solutions have advanced, so too have the customer’s expectations.
All security decisions are based on data. So, it would stand to reason that the more data organizations are able to collect, the more informed their security teams will be and, by extension, the better the decisions they make will be.
Often taken for granted—as video surveillance cameras and systems can be found in virtually any public space—the ability to deliver quality live and recorded video is a complex mechanism requiring hardware, software and networking.
The past few years have been unlike any period we’ve experienced in the professional security industry. The journey from the first IP cameras to the present day is now rapidly accelerating.
