ESX is different from all other industry conferences and shows because it’s owned by the Central Station Alarm Association (CSAA) and Electronic Security Association (ESA). The revenue generated by the conference will remain within the industry to be used for programming, education, legislative activities and public relations to benefit your company.
This year's ESX introduced two new mini-tracks to the Conference and Education program: NexTech, focusing on technologies like automation, networking, IT and A/V and sponsored by SDM, and Central Station Technology, discussing the new technologies for the 21st century central station, sponsored by Bold Technologies.
These two mini-tracks have included sessions on generating new forms of recurring monthly revenue (RMR), solving problems in the central station and the impact of IP-based video.
"In the NexTech mini-track, we really concentrated on the impact and opportunity of the new technologies hitting the market, and how integration and monitoring companies can create new streams of RMR from these technologies," says John Galante, president, AE Ventures, who participated in the NexTech sessions "Achieving RMR from Home & Building Automation," "Creating RMR from IT Networks" and "Generating RMR from Distributed Audio & Video."
"Our panelists are experts in their fields, and they shared their experiences and knowledge to help attendees successfully adopt these technologies and grow their profits in these areas."
Wednesday's Central Station Technology mini-track features two sessions, "Video Changes the Whole Game" and "Diagnosing and Solving Central Station Problems." Both sessions provided attendees with insights into the evolving central station, focused on the impact of new technologies like IP, network and hosted video solutions.
The Conference and Education program continues Thursday afternoon with a full lineup of seminars. Let's take a quick peek at some of the can't miss sessions.
