Welcome to the first edition of SIA Technology Insights.
We have created this semi-annual publication to serve as a resource for security practitioners who are interested in the latest security solutions. The articles that follow are original, in-depth examinations of particular aspects of electronic physical security technology written by experts from SIA member companies. All of the pieces are vendor and product-neutral.
The theme for this edition is the transition to IP within the security industry. More and more security systems are going online, creating new functionality and enhancing effectiveness. This creates new opportunities, as well as new challenges in identifying the appropriate technology for one’s facility. This publication will offer an exclusive look at how IP connections are shaping the industry and what this means to the end-user, with related stories on privacy, TWIC and the “greening” of security.
