September 2018 / Security Dealer & Integrator 75 designers and integrators can lower Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) while providing higher levels of integration that enable remote monitoring, diag- nostics and control. Using the data provided by the networked products, integrators can quickly identify and mitigate poten- tial and actual system issues prior to dispatching technicians – saving time, reducing expenses and increasing efficiency. Early intervention, pre- ventative maintenance and service calls (when necessary), can be han- dled with a higher degree of accuracy while improving overall security and operations. e tangible benefits of networked power and data transmis- sion products with network commu- nications provide an all-encompassing networked system solution. Consider a scenario where there is a system issue involving a security device. When troubleshooting, the power source is oen the first point to be checked, but is typically not the problem. Power solutions with embed- ded network communications can help to pinpoint the cause by monitoring all the connected devices. e infor- mation provided by these advanced power solutions reduces system down- time, helps eliminate service calls and provides faster response times. In addition to improving overall reliability, these characteristics can also significantly reduce an end-us- ers' TCO through more efficient ser- vice management. Simple tasks such as rebooting devices remotely and scheduling battery maintenance can be easily accommodated. Increased RMR New advanced power and data transmission solutions with embed- ded network management features provide benefits for both integrators and end-users. For integrators, the ability to remotely monitor power diagnostics in real-time from virtually anywhere over the network represents a new source of RMR. Additionally, the data and alerts these solutions provide make it possible to quickly identify and mitigate potential and actual system issues prior to dispatching technicians, which saves time, reduces expenses, increases efficiency and improves over- all security. Another key benefit is that preven- tative maintenance and service calls can be handled more accurately. In short, with network communication capabilities, new power and transmis- sion solutions provide a more holistic approach to systems integration. For end-users, power and data transmission solutions with embed- ded network management features improve overall security by reduc- ing system downtime. TCO is also reduced through more efficient ser- vice management; while tasks such as rebooting devices remotely, updating soware and scheduling maintenance are streamlined. Power and data transmission devices with network communica- tions and management capabilities are quickly becoming the new foundation for today's advanced integrated sur- veillance, access and security systems. It is time well spent for resellers and end-users alike to familiarize them- selves with these new solutions as they can increase overall performance, while actually reducing both short and long-term expenses. ■ » Ronnie Pennington is National Sales Engineer for Altronix.
