Welcome to our 100th blog post.  If you’ve been with us along the way, thank you for your readership.  If this is your first visit, we hope you find value just the same.

Just because we wrote 100 posts, doesn’t mean we need to look back in a sort of retrospective manner.  Just the opposite.  We’re taking this opportunity to look forward and talk about what’s new and exciting in security—specifically access control and video surveillance.

So what’s new with access control?  Since we have a locksmith division here at One Source, we thought we’d write about a relatively new product that combines locksmith and access control.

Pictured above is the Revolution by Arrow Locks.

It’s called the Revolution by Arrow Lock.  It is basically a high tech deadbolt with voice-guided programming and state-of-the-art touchscreen technology.

Why this is a key addition to the access control world is that it’s a great alternative to traditional deadbolts.

It installs quickly to save on overall costs, is aesthetically pleasing and will retrofit into existing deadbolt holes.

In terms of video surveillance, lately customers are able to capture more in the field of view while saving on costs, all while achieving superior technology.

For example, instead of using several cameras to cover a given area, one 360 degree camera can do the same, and with improved software, it can do it better.

For example, traditionally, with “fisheye” lenses, there would be curves at the corners—sort of a distortion at the edges.  But new software available now flattens it out into an image where the 360 degree image will be presented across one image uniformly.

Also, it will only take up one channel on the DVR, whereas with many traditional 360 cameras, four slots on the DVR would have to be taken up.

So now you can enjoy better images with improved software and reduce the overall number of cameras that you need.  360 degree cameras are superior to traditional PTZ cameras also in that you’ll always be viewing and/or recording the entire field of view instead having a portion of it always being out of view.

So we hope you are able to take advantage of these two new technologies and after the next 100 blog posts hopefully there will be two more that we can bring to you.

Thanks for spending some time with us today.
