LAS VEGAS — HD video systems. Access control. Biometrics and Big Data. AI and the like. Pfft. Talk to me when the stuff gets installed. None of it works until the infrastructure to support it is in place and humming — no matter onsite or in the Cloud. And that takes drill bits, tool belts and testers; fishing for wire here and there and out the other.

All hail the professional installer and the unsung wares you take into field every day.

And so it is we take an impromptu romp through some of the top exhibitors at ISC West that specialize in the gear that make security and fire/life-safety systems come to fruition. Flip through a gallery of images and watch short videos here to help plot a course through the exhibit hall to demo some of these indispensable implements.
