From that position, OAS can attest to some of the most innovative advancements going on in both image processing and package design that are truly redefining the dynamic landscape of this industry.


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?
