What we learned at ISC West 2019 (Debrief)

ISC West 2019 is Over

Safe and sound back home in Texas we decided we should give a recap of all things ISC.

Which Brands did we see at ISC West 2019 ? 

Axis and Bosch Booths at ISC West 2019 in Las Vegas NV

Qolsys continues to push the envelope as far as technology and aesthetics for self-contained burglar alarm panels.  Honeywell has rebranded its security line to Resideo.  DSC continues with their Iotega line and their best in class PowerG wireless.  We checked out a product from Konnected.io that allows you to self monitor your wired alarm system if you pair it with a SmartThingsHome AssistantOpenHAB and Hubitat smart hub.  We are interested in Konnected technology and will research if it is better than the current offering from EyezOn and will report back on our findings.

Defend-It-Yourself Adding New Camera Brands to Inventory

Surveillance is where we spent the majority of our time and let us tell you, cameras are getting better and cheaper!  We are in ongoing talks with some potential new partners including some Asian manufacturers for our own DefendItYourself.com branded line.  Some lines we are going to order sample cameras from and do due diligence on are Axis communications, Hanwha Techwin, LTS, Dahua OEM, Bosch, and a few Southeast Asian manufacturers.  The Southeast Asian manufacturers we are researching are compatible with Hikvision and Dahua protocols and should be plug and play with their NVRs, these cameras should offer amazing quality at budget-friendly prices.

We are really excited about the growth DefendItYourself.com has signed in the first quarter of 2019 and are excited about the possibility of becoming an OEM importer and broadening our product lines with offerings from the premier manufacturers in our industry.  The research will continue into a self-monitored alarm offering but we refuse to settle on a mediocre product, when we find a quality burglar alarm panel we will offer it.

  • Thank you for all the ISC West 2019 info. Looking forward to see those brands in your inventory. Hopefully you will provide the best or competitive prices. I’ve bought a Hikvision camera system from you about a month ago and willing to buy an alarm system too. Will you notice us via Newsletter once the brands added to your inventory?
