On Deck: In the August Issue of SP&T

Special focus: False alarms

  • With a population of 1 million, the Region of York, located a half hour north of Toronto has one of the highest levels of false alarms in the country – the vast majority of alarm calls police attend to are false. SP&T News talks to the region's police force and industry players in other jurisdictions about the statistics and what can be done to address the problem.

Installation focus:

  • Multi-unit residential buildings: Determining the right system for a residential high-rise community can be a challenge. Depending on the sophistication of the property manager, it often requires considerable education before a system that will actually protect people and assets is created. How do some installers work with multi-unit facilities to create systems that deliver true security to residents.

Technology Focus:

  • Some IT resellers already have an 'in' when selling security to CIOs and this has some security dealers worried that IT is coming to eat their lunch. With IP-based security technology grabbing more market share, experts tell SP&T News that traditional security sellers are going to have to re-think their approach.
