Opportunity is Everywhere

David Gottlieb by David Gottlieb | 11.14.2011

The focus was on the great opportunities out there for security dealers at the Honeywell/First Alert Professional Convention that kicked off in Scottsdale, AZ on Friday.  The event began with a series of speeches by Honeywell senior leadership.  Some highlights:

  • The prevalence of broadband and mobile technology is creating an ideal opportunity for dealers to extend their business beyond security and offer their customers compelling awareness and lifestyle features
  • Home automation is getting easier and more affordable than ever before.  Honeywell’s Tuxedo Touch can control security, video cameras, locks and lighting – and with a built-in web server, it can turn any smart phone or tablet into a home controller
  • The introduction of true simplicity to what was formerly complex is revolutionizing entry level access control and IP video systems and creating more opportunities for dealers and integrators

Check out the video with excerpts of the speeches at the opening session and also the coverage of Deborah O’Mara of Security Dealer & Integrator magazine and Tess Nacelewicz of Security Systems News.
