Monitoring Matters

Thank You for Coming!

May 4, 2022Cory Harris, Editor

I just want to celebrate! Yes, that may be a song by the group Rare Earth from 1970, but that’s also how I and my fellow Security Systems News colleagues feel after what was a fantastic and memorable SecurityNext conference in Nashville. We were so thrilled that we could host an in-person event for the first time since COVID-19 entered our lives in 2020. The enthusiasm of the attendees who ascended upon Music City for our conference last week was infectious, from the cocktail reception...

April 20, 2022Cory Harris, Editor

Music City, here we come! We are just days away from the security industry’s must-see event of the year as we proudly present our SecurityNext conference at The Westin Nashville from April 25-27. The Security Systems News team is so excited that SecurityNext is back to an in-person format after the COVID-19 pandemic relegated last year’s conference to a virtual format, which is just not same, don’t you agree? There’s only one word to describe the lineup for this year’s...

Coming off a successful and exciting ISC West in Las Vegas last month, the theme of rebirth and renewal seems fitting, as ISC West came back strong after a tough year in 2021 due...

Getting to know the media can improve ROI

June 28, 2012Tess Nacelewicz

Erica Wood, co-owner and chief security officer of Dayton, Ohio-based American Fire & Security, said she kept getting turned down by a business newspaper in her community when she tried to get it to publish news about her company. It wasn't until she met with the publication's editor that she found out the paper only wanted stories focused on business growth. Now Wood knows how to tailor press releases about her company to win the interest of that publication. Talking to editors and...

Telcos & Cablecos: Their strategies revealed

June 25, 2012Martha Entwistle

I'm here in Nashville for the fifth annual ESX show and I'm currently prepping for three, count 'em—three, panel discussions that I'll be moderating tomorrow. I will show no moderation in moderating on Tuesday. The panel discussions center on three different topics—careers in security, new technology impacting your business, and the new entrants into the security industry. However, when I did conference calls with the three different groups of panelists, the conversation inevitably touched...

December 2, 2010Daniel Gelinas

WILLIAMSTOWN, N.J.—C.O.P.S. Monitoring on Nov. 29 announced plans to expand from three central stations to four, adding a Tennessee center to its three existing locations in New Jersey, Florida and Arizona.
