The information technology department of the Everett Public School district was asked to design a modern security system that would serve the district’s current needs, be cost effective and handle future expansion.
The growth of technology is everywhere. What’s next for the security industry? I think the next innovation poised to transform the security industry will be deep learning or artificial intelligence (AI), which is a system that learns by looking at masses of data.
Most of us are using biometric technology in some way, shape or form whether that is at work or in our personal lives. If you are not yet using it, you will be soon.

It has been a long time coming, but the Bexar County Metro 911 Emergency Operations Center (EOC) is up and running, and the security systems implemented to protect the facility are among the best of the best. The regional operations center unifies emergency operations into one cutting-edge facility.
Standalone systems, where certain access points are equipped with card readers but are not connected to a larger network, can provide a cost-effective access control solution.
I read a recent news story I wanted to share and make aware of the ramifications. After nearly disappearing in the 1990s, the spread of child sexual abuse material exploded with the rise of the internet, while child sex trafficking increased with exposure to a greater market online. Today, the problem is complex and still growing.
Energy security, access to the electrical grid and police and fire safety are just a handful of the networked services that we take for granted and rely upon on a daily basis.
Any security camera should be able to render great quality images in daylight. However, when the sun goes down, not all cameras are the same.
