Not today, but tomorrow, a future outlook for intrusion

IMS research: excellence in market intelligneceThe intrusion industry is making strides forward, appealing to the masses on multiple levels not just security. The intrusion industry is beginning to model itself around convenience and interaction, a message that was also communicated at this year’s ISC West event. Five years ago, no one anticipated their cell phone would double as their Internet and no one expected to be able to have live streaming video of his/her home to be sent to their phone either. While it’s impressive to have that amount of connectivity in your pocket, will this solution appeal to the masses or a select few? Having been burgled in the past I can certainly relate to the new technology. A live stream of my burglar would have certainly helped at the time. Likewise while on business travel, having the ability to switch lights on and off remotely may also discourage potential burglars from straying upon my darkly lit property and save on my electricity bills at the same time.  

As part of a younger generation I enjoy gadgets and new technologies, who doesn’t? As the younger generation joins the workforce, they will undoubtedly want more integration and more interactive features at their fingertips. Although being able to turn the lights on and off or monitor a video camera in the home or small business may appear “unnecessary” or niche now, you could say the same for the smart phone when it came to market in the late 90’s. Now it seems nearly everyone has one.

The days of the landline are numbered as cellular activity picks up. With consumers using their cell phones for more than just calls, it’s only a matter of time before the industry takes a huge step forward to embrace today’s leading edge technologies. I mean who still uses a landline?

Annual Salary Survey

Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.

There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.

But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
