WHIRC would like to thank all our customers, dealers, manufacturers and peers that attended our 11th annual Partner Symposium, which was held at Mystic Lake Casino Hotel in Prior Lake on Thursday, September 30.
If you couldn’t join us this year, here’s what you missed…
This year’s event focused on the theme Here When You Need Us. One of the highlights of this day-long event was a four-person Dealer Panel, which gave guests the opportunity to discuss issues they are having with their own businesses, including supply shortages. Our panel of industry peers offered strategies to overcome them and discussed changes they have made to their own businesses since the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic.
Guest speakers represented Alula, Anelto and Residio. Each speaker highlighted their latest products and shared insight for what lies ahead in the security industry. The audience had several questions for the presenters and the vendors were on hand throughout the day to answer questions and showcase the latest technology.
Keynote speaker Jeff Pankoff, owner of Sandler Training, talked about the hiring process, the sales process and coaching. He stressed The Six P’s: Planning, Positions, People, Processes, Performetrics and Passion.
“Thank you for everything you do to put this great day together. I learn so much from this,” said attendee John Krus.
“(It was a) great Symposium,” added attendee Andy Knott.
After canceling the 2020 Symposium due to Covid restrictions, WHIRC was happy to once again provide this free educational opportunity for customers and industry partners. If you missed the opportunity this year, we hope to see you in 2022!

WHIRC would like to personally thank all the customers, dealers, manufacturers and peers that attended our 10th annual Partner Symposium, which was held at Crown Plaza Minneapolis Northstar Downtown on June 20. With this being WHIRC’s 25th anniversary year, our event focused on all the new technology and how to build your business for the future.
Our five-person Dealer Panel gave guests the opportunity to discuss issues they are having with their own businesses and our panel of industry peers offered strategies to overcome them. Guest speaker Aaron Hunnel inspired the audience when he talked about turning obstacles into opportunities.
For those who attended, we hope you enjoyed the symposium and took advantage of the many networking opportunities it provided. We were happy to once again provide this free educational opportunity for our customers and industry friends. If you missed the fun this year, we hope to see you there in 2019!
Along with installation questions, marketing questions and other important parts of the business, our dealer panel and manufacturers also touched on video monitoring offerings. Within the next 7 years, the IP Security Camera Market is set to grow at more than 20 percent compound annual growth. Camera technology only continues to evolve including more analytics capabilities to better identify the event, which is a signal from the video system. The signal is triggered by motion, line crossing, or additional analytics that are set in the recorder.
This security camera trend only seems to be picking up momentum and offers increasing opportunities for recurring monthly revenue (RMR), which is exciting news for our dealers.
WHIRC is prepared to monitor all alerts that are sent from any type of system including a video recorder. WHIRC provides multiple video integrations and a Universal Connector that is able to be programmed to turn any simple message into an alarm. We currently work with multiple authorities to assist them with identifying locations, images and landmarks. When a customer’s camera identifies an event and sends a signal to WHIRC, our agent’s use the customized alarm handling instructions of the event to properly handle the alarm or signal.
We hope to see you next year at our 2019 Partner Symposium!
