All things video at Affiliated's Security Summit '13

I first got word in the fall about Affiliated Monitoring’s Security Summit ’13, and the event caught my attention then because it was designed around a very focused topic which I've covered more frequently of late: video monitoring.

Tomorrow I depart for Affiliated’s headquarters in Union, N.J., where I’ll partake in several seminars developed to educate dealers about the best way to incorporate video monitoring into their business.

While the summit bears the title “Earn more money with Video,” that doesn’t totally do justice to the breadth and scope of the seminar topics. There’s a session on making the transition from analog to IP video. There’s a roundtable discussion on interactive services as it pertains to video monitoring, and how dealers can take advantage of video to bolster the usefulness of home automation packages.

The other seminars deal with video monitoring success stories, featuring companies that have boosted RMR from the offering, and an “ask the lawyer” section in which dealers can ask an alarm industry attorney the legal questions that could have a bearing on how they run their business.

I hope to be active on Twitter throughout the day, and to pen a blog or two about the most resonant discussion points that unfold amid the seminars.
