A Fresh Perspective: The Changing Competitive Landscape in the Electronic Security Industry

The popularity of smarter security systems and controls for homes and businesses is extending unique opportunities to the electronic security industry. It’s creating a fresh perspective and producing innovative products and services that are changing the competitive landscape.

The ESX Rise & Shine Breakfast on June 26 at 8:00 AM will welcome a diverse group of companies that can speak first hand to these opportunities, as Adam Mayer, vice-president of IntelligentHome for Time Warner, Gene LaNois, general manager of pro channel at Nest®, and Doug Bieter, vice-president of sales for Dropcam® take the stage. Their insights may surprise you, giving you a whole new perspective on the changing competitive landscape and opportunities for security professionals.

Where are the opportunities? What value do these companies bring? And how will their presence affect traditional integration and monitoring companies? Security professionals will not want to miss this opportunity to learn the answers to these questions.

“ESX strives to attract the movers and shakers in the industry each year,” says George De Marco, ESX Chair and moderator for the session. “I am thrilled to share the stage with these companies and look forward to a meaningful discussion on the challenges and opportunities that every security professional needs to know.”

“Nest reinvents unloved but important home products, like the thermostat and smoke and CO alarm,” said Gene LaNois, general manager of pro channel, Nest. “We also look for ways to reinvent sales and marketing in the categories where Nest products are sold. While our Nest Learning Thermostat and Nest Protect: Smoke + Carbon Monoxide alarm are sold direct to consumers, we’re seeing additional growth and demand in the professional installation channel and look forward to discussing the opportunities with the electronic security community at ESX.”

The ESX Rise and Shine Breakfast is sponsored by Qolsys and Security Systems News.

Registration for the ESX Deluxe Pass grants access to this breakfast along with ESX’s lineup of networking functions, the full education program and the most focused expo in the industry. This breakfast is also available as an a-la-carte purchase. Registration prices increase June 1.

As the rapid adoption of containers continues, companies are finding that they lack the operational tools to understand the behavior of applications deployed in these containers, and how to identify issues in their application infrastructure. For example, how are multiple containers within an application impacting each other’s performance? If an application’s service is degraded, which container is to blame? In the case of an application outage, what was the root cause of the outage?
