Security Beyond Alarms and Into the Connected World


This paper discusses how machine-to-machine (M2M) usage in the "Connected World" has made it possible for all types of industries to quickly implement economical solutions that help them become more secure. By using wireless remote monitoring and control they can better protect and monitor remote assets, that were before to costly or to difficult to monitor. In the past people have viewed security as mainly cameras or security systems that protect their assets. However with the ubiquitous wireless networks in place and lower cost data plans, security means so much more today. Now businesses can help protect our environment better by monitoring and controlling the environment such as air quality, and any equipment that could potentially harm our resources (air, water, land). These wireless systems can be monitored and controlled directly from a PC or just as easily from any smart phone. This paper provides several real life scenarios where environmental remote monitoring and control solutions have been implemented and used to alert the appropriate personnel of critical situations. These solutions have helped and will continue to help in saving precious resources.
