Drones and robots are becoming increasingly important in the security industry. They can be deployed for good purposes, such as performing security checks and other industrial tasks, but they can also be used for nefarious purposes, in which case a security integrator can engineer an airspace security system that detects unwanted drones.
Although they are just emerging in the security industry, security robots, surveillance drones, and counter-drone solutions hold substantial opportunity for security integrators. New sales opportunities are arising in commercial markets, making the business more accessible to a multitude of security companies.
Convergint’s Smart+Safe Cities subject matter expert Scott Frigaard was recently featured in SDM Magazine where he discussed the changing technology environment through the adoption of drones and robots.
New sales opportunities in commercial markets
“There are just so many needs that arise from these technologies, and the technologies themselves are adapting so quickly that it’s impressive. Our customers have really forced the adoption by Convergint into these solutions.”

About Scott Frigaard
Digital Transformation, Convergint
Scott enables the adoption of Smart and Safe City technologies and best practices. Smart Cities enhance the quality of life for their citizens by reducing crime, increasing economic development, streamlining mobility, and becoming more efficient in delivering services to their citizens. But cities can’t do it alone. They need a trusted technical advisor that can understand their unique challenges, articulate a long-term vision, implement common-sense solutions, and successfully navigate their complex landscape. Without that partner, Smart City programs won’t reach their full potential or return on investment. Scott has spoken frequently on the topic of data fusion, city-wide video surveillance, license plate recognition, and the need for integration of all physical security applications at many regional and national events including ASIS, International Association of Chiefs of Police, National League of Cities and Killer App Expo.
