Rather than do the normal weekly round-up this week, I want to highlight a recent venture I read about earlier this week on SecurityInfoWatch.com. A product architect from one of our partners, Digital Monitoring Products (DMP), recently led an initiative to bring an integrated surveillance system to a Guatemalan orphanage in order to hopefully prevent the frequent burglaries terrorizing the area. Looks like the installation has finally been completed!
Called Operation Security Blanket, this ongoing project aims to raise funds and secure surveillance equipment to provide security to the Eagles Nest Camp and Children’s Orphanage compound. Whether its coax cables, wireless transmitters, volunteer hours or other manufactured items, lots of people have been chipping in to make a big impact in the community.
In fact, the final installation now includes over 85 wireless detectors and 17 different protected areas spanning the six-acre grounds of the orphanage.
Great to see the industry giving back to the people and places that need it most! Inspiring stuff.
