Joe Young, Senior Director, Cloud & Enterprise Solutions for G4S Secure Integration hosted a webinar in partnership with SP&T News on February 14th, 2018. Joe, a leading expert on Cloud computing and enterprise solutions, helped viewers bridge the gap between consumer electronics and commercial security, where the industry is headed, and how best to adapt.

Like almost everything these days, commercial security systems are evolving at a feverish pace. Advances in consumer technologies such as televisions, digital cameras, personal computers, video game consoles, and mobile phones are making an impact on the commercial security market. End users now expect a connected experience, similar to what they have at home. Security equipment is becoming more cost effective. You can now buy a multi-megapixel camera with computer vision for under $300 for home use. Commercial security companies sell similar technology at twice the price. Mobile applications for security systems are becoming the norm. Users want to connect to their security systems from their mobile device. Security ecosystems are becoming unified. Applications are relying more and more on voice commands. 

What does all of this mean for traditional security manufacturers and integrators? To find out, rewatch Joe's presentation on SP&T News' YouTube channel.

In Joe’s current role at G4S he is leading the company’s connected vision to integrate hardware, software, services, advanced analytics, robotics and security personnel in a unified offering. Joe was recently named to Security Systems News “Integrators 20 Under 40 2017”.
