OPINION: Eliminating Local Police Agencies Across America

Allan B. Colombo, Tech Writer
Allan B. Colombo, Tpromo.Com

With all the anti-police rhetoric going on with certain individuals in government and in the private sector, I’d like to remind everyone how important and critical it is to have quality police officers on the job in our communities.

I’m more than tired of  hearing city officials and others degrade the need for law enforcement. I cannot even imagine what life would be like in our communities without police on the streets. Yes, there are a few bad applies, but look at the goofy city officials who are calling for the defunding of police departments in their own cities! Talk about bad apples, they are certainly rotten to the core.

Police shows being cancelled, schools calling for the revocation of contracts with police officers in our public schools, where does it stop? If Sheriffs and local city Police Chiefs were to offer firearm training for school officials, the very same communities would say no to that. We talk about Black Lives Matter, what about our children? What about store owners?

Law and Order begins with Police on the streets (image)
Law and Order begins with Police on the streets.

If regular, common people that can still think clearly do not stand up and support our law enforcement agencies, we’re going to one day soon turn around and find total chaos and anarchy in their absence. We can all start by voicing support online. That’s the very least we can do!

In my humble opinion, after decades of study, I believe that local and state authorities now calling for the defunding of local law enforcement may intend to call upon the United Nations to  provide law and order in their communities. We cannot allow this to happen. Please stand up for our men and women in blue!  —Al Colombo, Security eNews

Increasing RMR Through Technology and Intelligence

Code+ Centers of Design Excellence (image)The monitoring of intrusion alarm systems, closed circuit television, access control, fire alarms is the traditional way to create steady cash flow.

Traditional Monitoring

Alarm signal is transmitted to operator screen with instructions on if, who, and when to call

Traditional Monitoring (image)
Traditional Monitoring: $60 per month average.
Interactive Video Monitoring (IVM)

Video image and alert is sent to operator who diagnosis the event responds accordingly

Interactive Video Monitoring (image)
Interactive video monitoring: $750 per month average.

How to be successful using IVM?

  • Select the correct monitoring center. Not all monitoring centers are created equal when it comes to IVM.
  • Ensure the monitoring center has line item pricing. Pricing only by number of cameras or events is a huge “red flag”
  • Voice Down Communication takes IVM to the next level of behavior management.
  • End user involvement. Finding out the exact scope of wants and what they are paying for guards is paramount.

Lets face it. RMR Value at time of sale is the primary asset dealers have!!

If you’re a security integrator or an alarm dealer, you can add considerably to the RMR you’re making every month now by adding Interactive Video Monitoring to your list of
services you provide.

Believe me, someone’s going to do it, so why not you?

The Integration of Security And IoT

Verdafero offers an IoT and Utilities monitoring service (image)

The Integration of Security And IoT | #Verdafero #Security #IoT #Monitoring |  Security has many faces, whether it’s the hardened, Grade 1 locks on all the perimeter man doors throughout a building, electronic access control, video surveillance cameras, fire detection equipment, or the IoT devices that monitors a variety of critical services, such as  temperature, humidity, air flow, pressure, or the integrity and quality of any one of several utilities that clients depend on.

If there was ever a time when integration between the various facets of security, life safety, and general commercial Internet of Things (IoT) might occur, it’s now.

Monitoring Electric Utility usage is one of many applications for Verdafero's Cloud-based, AI-driven service (image)The Central Monitoring Station (CMS) that Security Integrators and Alarm Dealers use is equipped to monitor the physical security elements of a facility, but not necessarily IoT devices that output analog data. Not only that, but traditional CMS’ are not readily capable of analyzing multiple streams of Big Data (BD) for anomalies that might occur. But there is a solution to this problem that is capable of including the positive attributes of a CMS.

In the area of Utility BD, “Verdafero’s Utility and IoT monitoring and analytics platform uses Artificial Intelligence (AI) to capture, analyze, report and predict variable, broad-based utility expense information found from many data sources,” says Alastair Hood, Ph.D. and CEO of Verdafero.

Verdafero’s Cloud-based processing center will utilize  your favorite CMS’ API (Application Programming Interface), thus allowing your CMS to act on alerts issued by the AI platform.

According to Hood, “Using Verdafero, security service providers can now actively analyze and compare the performance of similar client properties and benchmark them  against other properties within their portfolio to help clients better  understand the opportunities to reduce overhead expenses.”

Biamp Announces Direct to Market Distribution in the United Kingdom and Ireland | #TpromoCom #Biamp #Financial #Business |  Biamp, a leading supplier of professional audiovisual solutions based in Beaverton, Oregon, USA, today announced the implementation of a dealer-direct model in the United Kingdom and Ireland, which will enhance the company’s ability to support customers and drive growth.

Following the recent opening of the company’s new European headquarters in Antwerp, Belgium, and UK sales office in London, Biamp is now transitioning to dealer-direct model to strengthen the company’s sales, support, and product distribution in the region. In addition to some direct accounts, Biamp will be working with Midwich, Leisuretech, and Professional Audio in Northern Ireland—in all cases, served by Biamp’s sales and support staff. This enables the company to more aggressively pursue opportunities in all target vertical markets: corporate, food service and hospitality, retail, large venues, education, religion, sports and leisure, and outdoor applications.

“With the UK being one of the biggest and most important markets in Europe, we are confident that our decision to go direct will allow us to serve our partners more effectively. Bringing on board an experienced UK sales force coupled with an expanded pre- and post-sales support team will allow us to engage dealers more fully in the UK and Ireland markets. This, in combination with our consultant support and vertical business development group, will ensure that we achieve our ambitious growth plans for the region. We are convinced this is the best way to promote beneficial synergies between Biamp DSP products, microphones, loudspeakers, amplifiers and complementary electronics,” comments Kris Vermuyten, General Manager, Biamp Europe.
