According to Gary Perlin of Speco Technologies, the perfect application in a public space or retail environment centers on cost effectiveness. “It means rapidly expanding in the public space arena as well as anticipating the recession with less people to deploy.”

On large public spaces like plazas, security executives and their system integrator need to walk the job site. “Look at things in greater details.”
