May 15, 2024Cory Harris, Editor

I’m channeling Van Morrison for this week’s blog after spending the last few days at PSA TEC 2024, a conference being fittingly held in “Big D.” Why do I say, “fittingly held?” Well, they say that everything is bigger in Texas, and I’m in Dallas, a city whose nickname is “Big D.” What I’m trying to say is that PSA TEC has gotten bigger each year since I started coming to the integrator-based conference, and it doesn’t seem like...

20, 2024 hours to go

January 24, 2024Cory Harris, Editor

Yes, I am channeling the legendary Ramones for my first blog of 20, 20, 24 - wait, let me correct that - 2024. See where my mind is this week? I’m far from being sedated; as a matter of fact, I’m pretty pumped about what’s ahead for Security Systems News readers in the coming days, weeks, and months ahead. But before I get into 2024, I have to look back at the end of 2023, and the tremendous webcast we hosted in December, titled “State of the Industry - A Look Ahead...

A PSA about PSA TEC

May 3, 2023Cory Harris, Editor

I admit that I had trouble coming up with a title for this week’s blog. But a comedian’s schtick that wrapped up the second day of PSA TEC 2023 just a couple of hours ago triggered a light bulb in my head. But more on that later. It’s been a very busy couple of days here in Dallas as I experience my second PSA TEC conference. More than 400 integrators and PSA technology partners have assembled at the Hyatt Regency in “Big D” for PSA’s annual education and networking...
