A Year in Review from Southwest Automated Security

What happened in 2020 has affected almost every aspect of life around the world. We wanted to sit down, reflect and share with you a year in review from the team at Southwest Automated Security. As we examine the past, we look forward to the future and everything that will come with the new year. Here is our year in review and what to look forward to as a trusted SAS partner: 


Our Heartfelt Condolences to Our Lost Partners

We want to take a moment with you to pay homage to two partners we lost this year,  Jim Feemster from Gemgates and Dale Wiggins from Dale Wiggins & Co. While it’s difficult to say goodbye, we know their memories will live on with each of us. We extend our deepest condolences to their families and friends and hope they both rest in peace.


A Year in Review and A Year to Look Forward

With 2020 in the rearview mirror, we’re looking ahead to what 2021 has in store for all of us. Security trends for 2021 are heading towards automation, AI integrations, facial recognition and so much more. As we continue on this journey together, we’re going to make sure that all trusted partners are in the loop with current industry trends. Stay tuned for what’s to come during 2021. 


Company Expansion into Charted Territories

We’re excited to set course on a number of new adventures for our company. As we move through 2021, our company will be looking to expand in various locations nationwide to help serve a broader range of security dealers. Not only are we excited about the possibility of expansion, but we’re also going to introduce new, high-quality electronic security products to our product line. To say we’re excited about 2021 would be an understatement. 


2020 has been a tough year, but our team is anticipating a tremendous and exciting year for our SAS partners. Thank you for taking the time to read our year in review, and we invite you to read our Thanksgiving thank you letter from Jeff Goodwin before the end of the year. For any questions or comments, please feel free to contact your local SAS branch.

Electronic Security Trends for 2021

2021 is just around the corner, and as we enter a new year, we’re anticipating exciting changes in the electronic security industry. As technology advances and new challenges arise, the team at Southwest Automated Security is ready to help all of our partners learn about the new solutions and trends in 2021. Here are a few 2021 security trends that we’re anticipating in electronic security:

Home Upgrades with Electronic Security

As technology integrations in our homes started to take grasp in 2020, smart home security has started to emerge. AI has increased the home owner’s ability to secure their property with a greater level of protection and has allowed people to control features of their home from almost anywhere in the world. We expect home security integrations to continue throughout 2021, and we plan to offer the best products available to our customer base. 

Video Audio Security Cameras Are Coming

One of the fastest-growing advancements in CCTV is the integration of surveillance and PA systems. Companies across the country have been integrating systems into their businesses that allow them to not only run surveillance on their assets but also talk to intruders or suspects that are caught in restricted areas.  This will continue to advance in 2021, and we’re keeping a close eye on its growth.

Facial Recognition Access Control Is Here to Stay

Biometric security has been on the rise for many years, but the fastest-growing segment in access control has been facial recognition. Since the pandemic, companies have turned to facial recognition access control solutions to help provide their employees with a safe and secure environment. There’s no doubt that facial recognition will continue to trend in 2021. 

Our team is dedicated to keeping you up to date with security trends in 2021. We’re ready to help solve your customer’s unique situations with durable, reliable and advanced electronic security products. If you have any questions about what you should expect in 2021 in the electronic security industry, contact our team today.
