The new year brings to mind the opportunity to look forward and create visions and goals for the future. Updates to technology and the development of additional needs consistently create opportunity for security industry changes and growth. SecurityInformed.com recently published a timely and relevant round table article posing the question to their industry expert panel of “What Change Would You Like To See In The Security Industry in 2022?”
Louroe Electronics’ CEO Richard Brent was one of the featured respondents laying out what he envisions for security industry changes in 2022:
“The security industry must adopt audio as an essential element to incorporate into security systems in 2022. Common pitfalls of current security installments, such as false alarms or delayed response times, can be answered with audio monitoring. As industry professionals, it is our job to provide expert level guidance and knowledge to those looking to deploy security measures. By not taking audio into account, the industry is not meeting that expectation. As sight and sound go hand in hand, we must change the conversation, specifications, and standards for modern surveillance systems to deploy both audio and video surveillance. At the end of the day, our collective goal is to keep people and property safe. Expanding our old ideas of a traditional surveillance system must continue to evolve. The time for audio to take its rightful place — not just as an add-on, but as an essential element of surveillance — is now.”
