The recent findings were released by Berg Insight in an effort to show how technology is increasing - many automated security services currently make use of self-monitoring, though as more devices are connected, it provides great opportunity for professional monitoring services to be included.

"There is considerable growth potential," said Andre Malm, Berg Insight analyst, in a press release.

It's not just home- and business-based security alarms that are receiving a strong boost from technological developments that are emerging. There is a great effort to bring connected features into vehicles on the roadway, including enhanced security measures, which can be used to quickly identify - and track - stolen vehicles.
