SECURITY CORNER
SIA Opens Online Resource Portal
for Cyber Certification Prep
THE SECURITY INDUSTRY ASSOCIATION (SIA) has launched
online resources in support of the new Security Industry
Cybersecurity Certification (SICC) program.
Developed by SIA with support from PSA Security Network
and Security Specifiers, the SICC program is intended
for security industry professionals who perform or provide
technical support for the installation, networking, configuration
and/or specifying of electronic security/low-voltage
technology devices.
These individuals may be involved in security integration
projects as an installer or technician who aspires to become a
lead technical support manager or engineer, while others may
consult on security project specifications or provide direct
oversight of technical security system installations.
" The new SICC was born out of the recognition that the
security of installed systems depends on the knowledge and
qualifications of those who install and configure them. This
certification is an important step in the provisioning of cyber-secure
systems, " states Ray Coulombe, managing director,
Security Specifiers.
To be eligible for the SICC exam, a candidate must have
a minimum of two years of experience directly related to or

Security Specifiers on the SICC program.
technically supporting the installation, networking, configuration
and/or specifying of electronic security/low-voltage
technology devices.
Because of the diverse background of security industry professionals,
there are no education prerequisites for earning the
SICC credential. All applications are subject to audit, whereby
applicants are required to provide supporting documentation
verifying the required years of experience. Applicants can
register for the program beginning in June.
To learn more, SIA has an archived information session on
securityindustry.org.
Vivint Creates 'Pool Alerts' for Outdoor Camera Pro
VIVINT SMART HOME is
allowing users to opt-in to
a free beta feature for the
company's Outdoor Camera
Pro, called Pool Alerts.
The feature from the
Utah-based CE Pro 100 company
allows users to create
an additional detection zone
around an area in the camera's
field of view, such as a
pool, pond, or outbuilding. If
the camera detects activity
in that zone, it can then
notify the user that someone
is in that detection zone.
Vivint notes in a blog post
that " since this is a beta feature,
it may not always work
perfectly and may not always

detect someone entering the
detection zone. Pool alerts
may experience the occasional
bug as the team continues
to evolve and make
the feature even better. "
To enable Pool Alerts, users
should open camera settings
for the Outdoor Camera Pro
in the Vivint app and then
define and label the additional
custom detection zone
around a pool (or the area the
user wants to protect, such as
a pond or driveway).
Once this area is set and

is enabled, if a person is

Camera Pro to automatically
record a clip and send a " Person
Detected " notification
to the user's phone.
This latest feature comes
in addition to the Outdoor
Camera Pro's AI-powered
Smart Deter feature, which is
designed to identify lurkers
on property. The camera
automatically plays a loud
warning tone and illuminates
an LED light on the camera,
letting the lurker know
they've been spotted.
" Since pool alerts don't
need to be used around a
pool or body of water, users
can extend the watchful eye
of the Vivint Outdoor Camera
Pro by adding the additional
detection around any
off-limit areas. So for valuable
tools in a shed to keep an
eye on, users can add an alert
for enhanced security, Vivint
says, for example.
