Lower Hardware Costs Enable ‘Remarkably More Valuable’ RMR Based Business

As one door closes another one opens with security opportunity. The speedbump for most integrators for building RMR through SecurityaaS service offerings has been amoritization of hardware costs and cash flow. Lower hardware costs actually enable this business model to grow your business and reduce risks. Your initial offerings must address cashflow however over 18-24 months it will become nearly "self-funding" within reasonable scale. In 5 years you have a company that is remarkably more valuable with much stronger cash flow. The glass has always been half full sometimes the perception...not so much.
