I'm getting ready for a quick trip to the West Coast for the HoneywellConnect 2013 event, which is taking place Nov. 7-10 in Los Angeles. This is a debut event for Honeywell, combining what used to be its First Alert Professional conference with events it did with its CSS and HIS dealers. I heard they're expecting more than 800 people. I'm looking forward to catching up with Security Systems News' readers that fall into all of those categories.

I was just checking out the App for the program. I'm impressed. The App includes descriptions and locations for the educational sessions and other events and a list of attendees. It also allows you to set up a personal schedule. What I like the best, however, is it allows you to send a message to another attendee from the App itself. Great idea. If you're reading this and have news to share, send me a message via the App. 

The educational sessions at FAP have always been well attended and interactive, and I'm assuming Connect2013's will be as well. I'm looking forward to these sessions in particular: Connected Home/Connected Small Business; Integated Systems Revenue Opportunities; Strategic Business Planning; Demand Creation; 2G to 4G Migration; Grant Writing; Business Metrics; The Right Acquisition Strategy; Server Virtualization; Hosted Video; Regulatory Compliance Management; and Vertical Market Success.

I'll be blogging and tweeting during the event. Look for updates here Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Going to be a busy three days.
