We will consider articles that are focused on Video Surveillance, IP Video Technology, Drones and Internet of Things (IoT) Security. Articles should not more than 800 words in length. If there’s a topic you are interested in writing about that does not meet these standards, contact the managing editor to discuss your idea – contact email:
