Introduction to Connected Security – New MLA Course

Connected Security Locksmith Course imageA introduction training course on Smart Security installation in residential and commercial property.

This year, 14% of homes had Smart Home products installed. With 24% forecast in 2018 – equating to a consumer spend of around $100 billion and 150 million homes – today is more important than ever for locksmiths to capitalise on this rapidly growing industry and not let electrical oracles monopolise the market.

With this in mind, the MLA has put together a training course on Smart Security, in partnership with Yale, Mul-T-Lock, Basson Group and others, to equip the locksmith with the tools to be not only ready, but to lead the ‘Smart’ security revolution.
