2015 Northeast Security Systems Contractors Expo roundup

May 22, 2015Spencer Ives

Yesterday, May 21, I headed down to this year's Northeast Security Systems Contractors Expo, in Marlborough, Mass. It was great to catch up with some of the companies I met at ISC West, and meet some new ones. In central stations, the biggest theme I heard about was that regional shows help monitoring centers get to know their dealers, in person and face-to-face.

New series 'On Location: Central Stations'

March 25, 2015Spencer Ives
