Hi I’m Norm
I am an electronic security professional, gadget fanatic, entrepreneur, and Christian family man. When I’m not standing in line for the latest iPhone (just kidding, I’ve never done that) I’m reading about, working with, or writing about electronic security. I believe that any physical security problem can be solved with the right mix of people, hardware, and software.

My Content
My mission is to connect people with electronic security technology. I write about Technology, solutions for Home and Business, and provide Tips & Tricks for anyone interested lessons from an industry insider. Sometimes I write about things completely unrelated to electronic security and put them in my Odds & Ends category.

I generally post a new article once a week, sometimes more. You can get all my new posts in your inbox, just subscribe via email and never miss a thing. It’s quick, easy, and you can unsubscribe at any time. I personally guarantee to never sell or share your email.

My Biography
I’m a graduate of the Craig School of Business at Fresno State, go Bulldogs. While I was in college I accepted a part-time position at Integrated Electronics, a contracting company that designs and installs electronic security systems. After just a few months I discovered a passion for electronic security technology. Over the past twelve years, I’ve spent my life in the trade and tech of the electronic security industry. In that time I’ve designed, managed, and consulted on thousands of electronic security deployments valued from hundreds to millions of dollars.

My Family
I’ve been married to my wife Stephanie for six years. We a five-year-old son and a one-year-old baby girl. We make our home in Clovis California, “It’s a way of Life”.


In my free time, I enjoy weekend get-away trips to the coast with the family. We like to camp in the Sierra Nevada mountains in the summer and watch Pixar/Disney movies on the couch in the winter.

My Contact Information
Send me an email or message me on social media, twitter and facebook. I really enjoy reading and responding to your messages.

My Colophon
This blog is developed using WordPress (4.6.1) and self-hosted. I used Thrive Themes to to build the site and layout.

All of the graphic design elements are also my own creation. Everything on the blog is intentionally designed and customized except for the font, which is “default”. My photographer is Jen Latham, who does all of our family pictures. Most of the photos are taken by myself or Stephanie with a Nikon D3300 but occasionally an iPhone 6+. I do use stock photos for post images when no attribution is required.

Egg Chef?
Yes, egg chef. I like eggs. I can eat them cooked any way, scrambled, fried, boiled, even poached if they’re cooked right. I know that the right way to cook eggs is highly subjective. Some people like them rock hard, burnt up, and charred. Some folks like them raw and runny, sick! But, I dare to say that I can make a believer out of anyone in a straight-up egg cook-off. If I cook you eggs, any style, I bet you’ll say those are the best eggs I’ve ever had. You are welcome to come over and test my skills, but give me some notice so I can let my wife know! Oh yeah, bring your own eggs too.
