DMP® Owners Forum Spotlights Industry’s Best Dealers With Annual DMP Awards

To mark the start of the ISC Show in Las Vegas where DMP showcased its new and existing products, DMP hosted its annual Owners Forum at the Four Seasons Hotel in Las Vegas for its top dealers.

“We’re excited to welcome the finest professionals in our industry to the 2022 Owners Forum. We expect another year of great insight and education,” said DMP Vice President of Marketing Mark Hillenburg.

This invitation-only event creates an opportunity for like-minded executives and owners to network and listen to acclaimed speakers share ideas on how to grow their businesses. The forum also spotlights this year’s DMP Award recipients.

This year’s Owners Forum featured two panel discussions with over 20 of the security industry’s biggest names discussing “Five things alarm company owners should do to increase the value of their company.” Panelists followed up with real-life tactical ways to put these items into practice. Keynote speaker, Scott McKain, gave an insightful presentation on the Ultimate Customer Experience.

The annual DMP Awards was initiated to recognize select outstanding dealers. Recipients are selected based on various criteria, including recognized milestones as a DMP dealer, sales-volume recognition and Dealer of the Year Awards in various categories.

Since 1975, DMP has been built on a foundation of innovation, integrity and responsiveness, Hillenburg adds. “As DMP continues to grow, we rely on our dealers for help in that advancement. Their insight and professionalism are vital to us, which is why we look forward to recognizing them at Owners Forum.”

The Current Landscape of Cyber Security and Its Effects on the Security Industry
Speaker: David Brent, Senior Cyber and Data Security Technical Instructor, Bosch

There are roughly 35.8 billion Internet of Thing (IoT) devices worldwide, and that number is expected to double in the next five years.

This session will review the Open-Source Intelligence (OSINT) gathering and how basic information can lead to threats to existing systems. It will also cover what attendees should investigate before adding any new security technology to a network.

The New DICE Launches Video and IoT Analytics Premium Global Partner Program

The New DICE has developed a new video and IoT analytics premium global partner program to provide central stations and integrators with the option to combine advanced AI analytics technologies with DICE’s advanced interactive and video services in Matrix Interactive.

Matrix Interactive is a cloud-based event management software with interactive video, analytics, and artificial intelligence. The Matrix engine uses several third party’s multi-billion-dollar technologies embedded into the platform, providing true AI analytics going beyond motion detection and basic video verification. Configuration of areas of interest is done in Matrix to add flexibility such as scheduling to the partner’s analytics.

While Matrix Interactive has its own analytics, it is an open and generic platform for DICE partners and by integrating Matrix Interactive with other company’s analytics, monitoring stations and command centers can add new levels of security as well as advanced interactive and video services into their monitoring operations.

“Actually, we have hundreds of technology partners and many thousands of products that interface with Matrix,” explained Avi Lupo, co-president of The New DICE. “The world is changing, and it is essential to have an open platform that supports any technology partner and not through APIs which is limiting.”

The DICE open platform opens the gateway into central stations and command centers with the ability to provide new interactive video monitoring services. For integrators, this means there is no need to change the analytic company they are currently using to take advantage of these new services, but instead have the flexibility to pick and choose – and even add other analytic technologies from a variety of partners.

“With Matrix Interactive, the industry is not limited in choosing an analytic technology today,” said Lupo. “We are choosing our partners carefully. The integration with the high-end analytics from our premium partners provides new benefits and resources designed to bring more options to our growing Matrix Interactive ecosystem as the security industry races to keep pace with what we call the ‘new alarm industry.’”

The event flow of video and IoT devices takes advantage of both Matrix Interactive and each partner’s unique analytic technology. IP cameras and devices are easily configured within Matrix Interactive. Upon an event, the event is first sent to DICE’s server cloud Gate Keeper, which eliminates the amount of traffic to the partners. The pertinent events are then sent to the appropriate partner, which then analyzes the event in real time and then sends back the verified alarm to Matrix to then send to the central station operator. Matrix Interactive utilizes an event system flow like an alarm system, using virtual video zones. Subscribers can even arm and disarm the video zone.

With this program, the industry will realize access to the growing marketplace of video service solutions, unlock new revenue opportunities, and have a competitive edge in accelerating their customers’ digital transformation with enhanced security and better customer experiences.

The growing list of video and IoT analytic premium partners includes Actuate, Calipsa, Cawamo, Corsight, IronYun, M2M, Rhombs, Sentry AI, and Speco. Each of the partners will have information on integration with Matrix Interactive at their ISC West Booth, including postcards and brochures. There will be a QR code link to a landing page explaining more about Matrix Interactive, the analytic technology of each partner and the benefits of the integration and partnership.

“Our new global partner program is a game changer, which offers significant value and will maximize our partners’ ability to take advantage of Matrix Interactive’s solutions,” added Lupo.

UCC Mourns Loss of Longtime Employee

Harry Rossmoine, UCC’s IT Manager, passed away on Monday, 2/28/2022.  Loyal and devoted he was to both his own family and his work family. Harry was not only a great employee who was always willing to help out in any way he could, he was a friend, colleague and confidant to many. His high energy and positive attitude was infectious around the office, you never saw Harry down. He was always smiling even during the toughest days and situations. His strong faith in God was his foundation and he lived and walked his faith every single day. We take comfort knowing he is rejoicing in heaven; however Harry is greatly missed and leaves a big hole in our hearts.

His obituary:

On Monday, February 28, 2022, Harry L. Rossmoine was called Home and left his earthly body to join our Father in Heaven. Harry was a steadfast Christian, a devoted husband, and loving son, brother, father and Popi. He lived a life overflowing with faith and love for God and his family and friends.

Harry was born on July 9, 1962 in Indianapolis, IN. He accepted Christ in 1973 at Englewood Christian Church also in Indianapolis, IN.

Harry was a good son to George and Billie Crow. He was a hard worker from a young age until the end. He worked in IT for close to 40 years and was an IT Manager at the time of his passing. Harry struggled in school but not because he could not do the work but he was bored and did not always do the work. He left high school to join the Army. He served our country at Fort Bliss in Texas from 1979 – 1985. He lived in Florida for many years and loved the beach. To him, moving to Texas was one of the hardest things for him to do. He was so unhappy for the first six months. Then he met Tonya online. Once they met in person, they were inseparable. They were married June 20, 2015 by her grandfather while at a family reunion. Together they served at Church Unlimited and also lead a life group. He attended college for the first time in January 2021 at the age of 58. He and Tonya were working together to be Christian Marriage Counselors. Harry never stopped improving himself to help others.

Harry lived a life many of us can only strive for. He was always happy and doing what he could to uplift others. He was always the first to arrive and sometimes the last to leave. He would do anything and everything he could to help someone and did it with a joyful heart. He saw it as “I get to do this” instead of “I need to do this.”

Harry was preceded in death by his father, George Crow, and his niece, Brandi Rossmoine.

Harry is survived by his mother, Billie Crow; his brother, Steve Rossmoine; his wife, Tonya Rossmoine; his seven children: Johnathan Rossmoine, Jessica (Everett) Young, Ashley (Alex) Holy, Cody (Candace) Fedler, Michael Rossmoine, Jaclyn (Jacob) Fernandez, and Stephanie Rossmoine and his seven grandchildren: Skip Holt, Zander, Zea, and Lucy Dempsey, Juliette Fernandez, Annabelle Holy, and Zaylin Young.

Harry’s Celebration of Life will be held at Church Unlimited located at 24610 US 281 San Antonio, TX 78258 on Wednesday, March 09, 2022 at 1:30 p.m.

Those of us who remain behind will carry on his memory and good works until we can meet again in God’s sheltering embrace.
