Alarms

Demand is segmented by application:

  • local – standalone devices that emit an aural or visual signal when the unit is triggered
  • central station – a network of alarms whose operations are automatically reported to a centralized commercial monitor charged with rendering protective services in the event of an emergency. Additionally, smart, self-monitored versions of these products that connect to an end user’s smartphone or other electronic device are included in this segment.
  • direct connect – alarms that directly connect to public safety forces (e.g., police, fire)

Demand is also segmented by market, which comprise:

  • residential (i.e., products used in single-family or multifamily residences that are not used for any nonresidential purpose)
  • trade and distribution (including the retail and warehouse segments)
  • industrial (including the manufacturing segment)
  • financial institutions
  • government
  • commercial offices and office buildings
  • services (including the public venue and casino gaming segments)
  • educational buildings
  • healthcare facilities
  • air transport
  • lodging establishments
  • other nonresidential markets, such as religious buildings, museums, and libraries

Also included in the scope of this study are all-in-one security systems, excluding cameras that are part of these systems.

Excluded from the scope of the study are:

  • video cameras
  • security services such as alarm monitoring and systems integration, as well as installation and other service revenue
  • dedicated information security hardware and software (e.g., computer network access devices, encryption, firewalls, and virtual private networks)
  • motor vehicle security systems, such as anti-theft, keyless entry, and vehicle recovery systems
