Many of us can remember a time when we didn’t have, or really need a cell phone. Can you imagine life without one?! Many of the technologies that we count on everyday seemed like just a convenience (and sometimes even a waste of money) at the time we first bought them. Now we can’t live without them. This seems to be true of most companies’ initial dive into the realm of security electronics. Whether they start with cameras, access control or even an alarm system, they purchase them thinking this will be a convenience for the company and its employees and soon learn just how invaluable these systems can be. They start small and as they learn the benefits that the systems offer, they expand the systems over time. This is the point in the lifecycle of their security implementation where many companies unwittingly begin to cause themselves undo heartache, stress and money.
