AVAD LLC, Van Nuys, a distributor of custom electronics, announced it has partnered with PSA Security Network, the world’s largest electronic security cooperative, to offer PSA security systems integrators access to a complete array of security, residential AV and commercial AV products and support programs available at AVAD. To kick off the new partnership, AVAD will present at PSA-TEC 2010, PSA’s annual trade show featuring the security industry’s top product suppliers and educational opportunities held May 24-26 in Rosemont, Ill.
“AVAD is deeply committed to providing integrators with the best in products and support,” said Jim Annes, vice president and general manager of AVAD. “Through our partnership with PSA Security Network, AVAD is now bringing its unique service offeringsâ€”including 26 US locations, fully-stocked showrooms, in-depth training opportunities, unique dealers programs and the industry’s most respected roster of security, residential AV and commercial AV brandsâ€”to PSA owners and customers.”

Every year, PSA-TEC brings together thousands of security systems integrators and vendors for in-depth training and highly-effective networking opportunities to help build profitable business opportunities.
As the cover asserts, this year may be a tipping point for access control sales — with big data, cloud, cyber and more causing customers to rethink and retool their access control and identity management systems.
Also in June, the latest developments in Central Station Software, the "Most Popular Brands Among the SDM 100", and much more.
