Security Integrator Finder Released

Author: John Honovich, Published on Apr 01, 2015

The new Security Integrator Finder's goal is to list every integrator in the world, overlaid on Google Maps.

Here's how you benefit:

  • Integrators can more easily be found by end users and manufacturers.
  • Manufacturers and distributors can locate potential new dealers / partners.
  • Consultants / A&Es can find more integrators who can bid on projects.
  • End users can find more suppliers in their areas.

This quick video show you a glimpse of how it works:

Not only are integrator offices mapped, but each 'pin'/location includes a link to go to the integrator's website.

Try out the Security Integrator Finder now.

Adding More Integrators

Since there has never been a comprehensive independent list of security integrators, the main challenge is finding and adding all integrators in.

So far, we have 1300 integrators listed but we want to add thousands more. There is no cost required at all and the Finder will be a public, free resource.

Please submit other integrators either by emailing us at info@ipvm.com or submitting the integrator addition form.

Future Enhancements

In the future, we would like to add more information details, such as licenses, certifications, lines carried, employees, years in business, etc. However, that is minimally 6 months or a year away as it will take a significant data collection process.

What Do You Think?

We are excited that this will help the community better find integrators and help integrators get more visibility.

Try the Integrator Finder out. Let us know what you think and, again, we welcome input on more integrators either by emailing us at info@ipvm.com or submitting the integrator addition form.

Well done - nice additional benefit.

Hi John, firstly, thank you! This is a great service.

One thing that struck me was after I searched on my home city, the map showed several integrators in my local area but the database listing continued to show all 1183 entries. It would be nice if, as with the camera finder, the database listing would only show the listings matching the search.

It would also be nice if the pins on the map were color-coded to show if the member is IPVM-certified or not. In the short term, one color for certified and one color for not would do. In the future, that could be changed to show different colored pins for different certifications although that could be tricky if a member has multiple certifcations.

It's already a very helpful tool and I look forward to future developments.

The integrator finder is great!! Thank you so much for putting this together.

John, curious what is it about Axone Système CCTV and PSIM Integration that allows them consistently rise to the top position of any search result they are included in?

Of course PSIM could stand some good press, but in any event the Axone website link is broken.

It would be great if you could search by the product you are interested in ex: Genetec, Milestone, Softwarehouse, Lenel etc to find a local integrator that is certified to install those products.

2, having integrators sortable / identifiable by products carried / authorized would be great. However, it is too much work for us to handle. Maybe we will do in the future as we grow but it's a hard one to keep updated / correct.

I do appreciate your request and we will keep this in mind as we consider what to add next to our different tools.
