More and more IT solution providers and MSPs are being asked by their SMB clients to handle aspects of physical security. Most who respond to the requests confine their work to basic video surveillance systems, but there is so much more to offer and so many more dollars (usually recurring) to be had with a more comprehensive approach. In this session will dig deeper on the opportunities in video surveillance (with a special focus on hosted and monitored solutions that can yield lucrative recurring revenue). We'll look at hosted and managed access control and interactive services enabled by alarm/automation controls. In addition to explaining the opportunities and business and technical requirements, we'll explain where licensing applies and does not. We’ll also steer you to sources of additional information and training that can help you take your physical security play to the next level.
