Oakwood Automation president and founder Jim Macri is a most excellent source of information on home surveillance technology, and he is available for interviews, Q&A pieces or bylined articles on any of the following features or stories:

*Unhiding the hidden Fees in Home Surveillance - when you hear a pitch for an incredibly appealing form of home/office surveillance (or even home automation) technology, ask about the monthly fees. Not all surveillance systems require a monthly subscription plan. In this article, Jim Macri can discuss the difference between custom installations and standard "cookie cutter" systems - and shed light on what can be done without the customer having to spend money every month just to have the technology work.

*Analog vs. Digital - what's the difference between one and the other and what advantages does the user get in image quality or in his checkbook?

*Durability - how tough are today's indoor and outdoor cameras? What can they take in temperature, humidity and so forth vs. the "hot" cameras of just a few years ago?

*The portability of it all - with a tablet, iPhone, Smart Phone crazed audience, how easy is it for a user to check in on the house (or the vacation home) with one of these portable devices. And what kind of image or video quality can you expect to get?
