Northeast Florida Builders Association Turns to CPS Security for Latest Weapon in Fight Against Construction Site Theft

Live Demo of Web-Based Mobile Surveillance Unit (MSU) to Homebuilders and Construction Industry Representatives Focuses on the Future of Site Security

JACKSONVILLE, FL--(Marketwire - August 21, 2007) - Construction theft is big business, with industry experts estimating annual losses at roughly $1 billion. Nationwide, the Insurance Services Office reports a 20 percent annual increase in equipment and materials being stolen. Due to local housing and construction growth, much of Florida is experiencing the same problems.

In a pro-active step to address the theft issue, the Northeast Florida Builders Association (NEFBA) will host a live demonstration of the "eCamSecure" MSU manufactured by CPS Security Solutions of Southern California, a nationwide security and crime deterrent company. Many Florida-based developers, builders, property managers and general contractors are slated to attend on Wednesday, August 22nd. The 7:30 a.m. meeting will include the product demonstration designed to focus attention on rampant construction site theft and ways to combat it with new security technology like the MSU.

CPS Security will be represented by Billy Barren of the eCam division. "Along with its standard array of fixed cameras, this demo MSU also has a pan-tilt-zoom camera, as well as one for license plate recognition and wireless motion sensor technology," explained Barren.

Highlighting the morning demonstration will be a live video feed from an active site that is accessible through the internet. "Many of the construction people we have met, who could really use this eCam MSU, weren't even aware that it existed," said Barren.

The demo will be held at the NEFBA headquarters at 103 Century 21 Drive, #100, Jacksonville, Florida 32216. For information on the event, call Billy Barren at (904) 588-5565. For general information regarding CPS Security Solutions, visit
