In today’s connected world, our customers are focused on streamlining operations and garnering actionable insights to help drive success across the business. Modern security systems enable security integrators to offer remote access capabilities which in turn helps businesses to improve their performance.
For example, security integrators continue to bring new value to customers through new capabilities enabled by the Internet of Things. By utilising connected technology and sensors, security integrators are able to provide increased business intelligence across systems. This context-based insight and intelligence will help customers improve performance across business units and drive a higher return-on-investment for physical security solutions.
Remote monitoring capabilities
Another significant trend is the reality that security professionals and business owners require the ability to manage their security systems from remote locations using any web-enabled device such as a smart phone, tablet or laptop. Having the capability to control systems while off-site enables our customers to improve productivity while enhancing security measures conveniently and affordably.
Standardised systems meeting global security needs
Finally, the need for multinational companies to streamline and standardise their security systems around the world will continue to be a priority in 2016 and beyond. That’s why Tyco announced an expansion of its Global Center of Excellence Network to offer a single point of contact for all global security needs, saving time and resources, while allowing access to multiple competencies in a centralised location.
As we look towards 2016, integrators will continue to drive changes in the security industry, not only through the technology and service they provide to customers, but with the ability to make connectivity possible and actionable for businesses of all sizes.
