YARMOUTH, Maine—On the residential side of security, the idea of using your phone to disarm your alarm, open your door or just check on things remotely has not only become expected today but demanded, as both manufacturers and dealers have embraced this new wireless world we are all living in. But on the commercial side of the business, especially within access control, that same kind of convenience, ease of use and access to resources and data at your fingertips is not quite there yet, although conversations with some leading cloud providers in this area provide both hope and tempered excitement for the future of access control in the cloud.

Distribution news this week: The Systems Depot has hired Scott Hay as president.

Scott is out of the office this week, but I expect to interview him next week. Hay comes to The Systems Depot from Protection 1, where he was operations manager for North and South Carolina. He's been in the industry for 20 years and has also worked at Iverify as director of installation. He was also the  founder and owner of Custom Automation and Security in Dallas, N.C.

In a prepared statement, Hay said that The Systems Depot is building a “National Technical Sales Center in Hickory for hundreds of associates and outfitting it with the latest in technical hardware, training tools, work stations; all designed for employee productivity and comfort.”

“The National Sales Center will be reaching out to more than 15,000 companies in the US,” the report said.

“When these in-house advancements are coupled with the broad product assortment currently provided to dealers and integrators nationally, and with our Depot Express same-day delivery, we are positioning ourselves for strong and sustained growth,” Hay said.

I look forward to getting more information about specific growth projections and plans from Hay when I speak to him next week.
 
Founded in 1996, in Winter Park, Fla., The System Depot moved here in 2000 after a series of mergers. It has locations in Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, West Virginia and California.
