Orem, Utah (PRWEB) October 31, 2006
The Commission for Economic Development in Orem (CEDO) today recognized three current success stories among its Small Business Incubator clients. Home View Technologies, ImSAR, and Ad Hoc Electronics are among successful companies that have achieved greater success using CEDO expertise and resources. Each of these start-ups has achieved significant and rapid traction in their industry and has demonstrated solid planning and management practices to secure long term success. Each aspires to success enjoyed by distinguished Incubator graduates of note including PowerQuest, 1-800-CONTACTS, K-TEC, and Granny B's Cookies.
"Orem has repeatedly proven itself as a great growth environment for small businesses," stated Brad Whittaker, executive director of CEDO. "These three rising stars have fully leveraged the incubator services and mentoring that assists small businesses in gaining the traction necessary to grow and create jobs."
Home View Technologies, Inc. places Internet accessible pan, tilt and zoom (PTZ) cameras on construction sites, both commercial and residential, to facilitate project management and reduce theft. The cameras and flood lights are motion activated so that anyone coming onto the site will have their picture taken and archived.
Home View cameras have already stopped several attempted thefts. One construction contractor client reported that they had lost a significant number of tools to theft on a Saturday night. On Monday, Home View Technologies went into its video archives and found a little red pickup on site Saturday at 10:30 p.m. loading up. The owner knew it was a sub-contractor and took it from there.
The police chief of Mountain Green, Utah told one contractor protected by Home View cameras that after installation reported thefts in that subdivision stopped overnight. You can log on and demo a camera at http://www.homeviewtech.com.
