Industry Pros Talk High Security For Cannabis Industry


Industry Pros Talk High Security For Cannabis Industry | #TpromoCom #AlarmCom #Webinar #Security #Event | Jake Voll, president of SS&Si Dealer Network, and Tyler Kockler with Alarm.com have teamed up to present a panel discussion on leveraging 'Alarm.com for Business' to provide a bundled security, video, and access control solution for the cannabis industry. http://bit.ly/2Nt4fH2

The next significant trend in physical security centers on the protection of cannabis dispensaries throughout the United States. According to a market report, published by Reportlinker, the cannabis market is expected to reach USD $104.9 Billion by 2027, expanding at a CAGR of 15.5 percent over the same time period. Given the monetary value of cannabis products, Security Dealers and Integrators across the nation should find this segment of the security market profitable.

Voll and Kockler have invited two top security integrators who have been extremely successful providing security solutions to the cannabis industry to share their experience and expertise in this lucrative segment of the security market.

"The cannabis industry in New England is rightly regulated, and American Alarm and Communications Inc. has earned an excellent reputation as the experts in security for cannabis grows and dispensaries," says Andy Klein, integrated systems consultant with American Alarm.

Halfway across the country, Alcom Security has successfully tapped into Oklahoma's cannabis industry network to secure numerous facilities throughout the state.

"We're excited to share our expertise with other firms in our industry. While we intend to remain the foremost experts on security for cannabis facilities in Oklahoma, we recognize that the opportunity to support the industry extends well beyond our service area," says Taylor McKinney, operations manager with Alcom.

Both Alcom Security and American Alarm and Communications Inc. leverage the 'Alarm.com for Business' platform in order to win commercial accounts outside of the cannabis industry. Business owners and managers enjoy the convenience of a single platform on which to manage their security, access, and video.

"Tyler and I are happy to collaborate in order to educate dealers on the opportunities found in the cannabis industry," says SS&Si's Jake Voll. "We appreciate the tremendous support from the Alarm.com team and we're excited to see continued and mutual growth as we focus on commercial security solutions for our shared dealer partners."

49% of US broadband households own a smart speaker or smart display


Webinar, sponsored by ULE Alliance, examines growing use of
voice control for home security and automation

Parks Associates research finds 49% of US broadband households own a smart speaker or smart display, driving voice to the forefront of the connected home consumer experience. Parks Associates is hosting the complimentary webinar “Voice Controls and Smart Home: Optimizing Product Design,” sponsored by ULE Alliance, on December 3 at 11 am CT (9 am PT), to evaluate methods for product manufacturers and service providers to evaluate voice control technologies and integrate solutions into their offerings that will deliver high-quality design while ensuring quality of service (QoS).

“Voice control quickly captured consumer interest, driving smart speaker adoption with early use cases focused on quick information requests and music streaming,” said Jennifer Kent, Senior Director, Parks Associates. “However, the user experience across smart speakers varies greatly, so as voice control moves into more critical use cases, such as emergency detection and response, companies will need to ensure QoS with a well-designed solution to maintain consumer confidence.”

In this webinar, speakers will share leading approaches to integrating voice and data communication into smart products and services and the tradeoffs that product manufacturers and service providers make when deciding among these approaches.  The webinar features the following speakers:

  • Avi Barel, Director, Business Development, ULE Alliance
  • Doug Bellenger, Head of Product, DIY, ADT
  • Jean Claude Bennoun, Business Development Manager, Crow Electronic Engineering Ltd
  • Jennifer Kent, Senior Director, Parks Associates
  • Bill Scheffler, VP Business Development, DSP Group


Webinar Topics:

  • Consumer data on smart speaker/display adoption
  • Adoption and usage of multiple speakers per household
  • Voice as an interface for security systems and products
  • Benefits of combining voice and data for product design
  • Key metrics as OEMs and service providers evaluate standards for voice integration
  • Use cases that need reliable QoS
  • Two-way voice use cases


Parks Associates Consumer Data:

  • 74% of smart home device owners also own a smart speaker.
  • 18% of US broadband households report that COVID-19 has increased their interest in products and services that enable “touchless” control of smart home devices using voice control.
