I agree, hmm indeed. I would add that the trend in recent years has been that the show has a strong presence for cameras.  And drones sure are becoming a larger player. There are also some major physical security product manufacturers that have impressive physical barriers and access control. I used the time to ask around about what cloud services are being used to deploy some of the industry software. I was surprised to see Dell Technologies had a booth.  They are offering the security industry some storage, networking and cloud solutions.  Nice to see them recognize the value of our industry and introduce their solutions. Interesting we don’t see Google, Amazon, Samsung, Microsoft or others. (some subsidiaries of Amazon and a couple shout outs to Google Assistant only).
