The integration between Suprema’s BioStar 1 and 2 and Arteco adds real-time access control events into Arteco. BioStar solutions can now be managed from within the Arteco VEMS interface, streamlining usability and boosting event management. Through the Arteco mapping interface, operators can check door status and manage locks, demonstrating the benefits of managing multiple connectors through the Arteco UI.
“Security is always too much until the day that it is not enough.” This quote, coined by former FBI director William H. Webster, perfectly summarizes the physical security industry. The irony of this fact is that a well-functioning security solution is transparent to the end-user. It is only if the security system fails that it comes to the attention of management. For this reason, both developers and condominium boards have shown some reluctance to invest in high-end security methods. There are many good reasons for this hesitation. Previously any security system over and above a camera system (referred to as a video surveillance system or VSS) has been seen as an upgrade due to the cost of the equipment and of running cables. Recent advances in the equipment have made VSS, and other technologies, much more useful and affordable to condominiums.
When Connected Technologies, LLC and its Connect ONE® cloud-hosted integrated security platform launched several years ago, former dealer and managing partner Mike Simon set out on a mission to deliver targeted services that installers and their customers could use to manage their business holistically without increasing operating expenses. When an integrated platform is easier for customers, such as Connect ONE, the stickier they become and the more likely to add other capabilities. That means tangible recurring monthly revenue for the dealer and a higher overall business valuation.
