Integrator of the Year: Cobra Integrated Systems
Cobra Integrated Systems Ltd. has been named as Security Integrator of the Year 2012, sponsored by Anixter Canada, by the SP&T News editorial advisory board. Cobra, based in Vancouver, won the award based on the installation of an IP-based security system at EPCOR Tower, a 28-floor office tower in Edmonton. The project included an IP access control system for 450 doors and an IP video system comprised of 350 cameras, as well as IP intercoms and fire monitoring.

False alarms:
The issue of false alarms is one that has haunted the security industry — heavy fines levied by municipalities on private home owners have resulted in finger-pointing and an ongoing search for solutions in order to reduce the rate of false alarms and deal with those that occur. Industry stakeholders provide their perspectives and comment on the current state of affairs.

Visitor management systems:
Many security dealers and integrators overlook visitor management. It doesn't often carry the high system sales cost of access control or CCTV systems. But a modern visitor management system can add substantial value in improved security and operational efficiency and provide another service that installers can offer their clients.
