From The Editor: Avoid Calamity In The Closet

Source: Innovative Retail Technologies

By Matt Pillar, Editor In Chief, Integrated Solutions For Retailers magazine

I was recently talking trends with Direct Source president Brad Fick and engineering manager Will Botten when they told me something I found rather alarming. Direct Source is an integrator that does a fair amount of tier-one LP (loss prevention) work, and the pair told me that they've been extremely busy lately installing high-end surveillance cameras in retail MDF (main distribution frame) closets and server rooms that were never before surveilled. They told me stories about what they're seeing out there in the field.
