HOW I USE MY SYSTEM
Kastle’s Mark Ein discusses home security
Mark Ein, chairman of Kastle Systems, recently told Security Systems News about the security system he has at his home.
What kind of security system do you have?
I have a Kastle System (of course!) that is comprised of KastlePresence, a hands - free mobile access control platform, and KastleVi - deo, an awardwinning cloudbased, smart video platform.
Why this particular setup?
The combination of integrated access control and video surveillance provides unparalleled security coverage for my home and gives my family and I peace of mind.
What is one aspect of your security system that you wouldn’t want to live without?
It’s a tossup between being able to use my phone as my key with KastlePresence, and getting notifications from KastleVideo when there is a person or vehicle present—and NOT getting false notifications or “noise” from wind, shadows, or small animals.
Where do you see security going next? What are some big trends?
At Kastle, our pursuit is to make security even more effective and efficient while, at the same time, more convenient and less intrusive. To do this, we are leveraging trends including accelerated movement to mobile and the cloud, using security data for business intelligence and operational improvements, and integrating access with identity management, which enables a much more convenient visitor experience.
