DirectView Recognizes Major Opportunity for Custom-Tailored Security, Surveillance, Access Control, and Safety Solutions in the Booming Cannabis Industry
DirectView Holdings, Inc. (OTC: DIRV) (‘DirectView’ or the ‘Company’), a company focused on ownership and management of leading video and security technology companies, today announced the Company focused on a new initiative to provide and install custom-tailored security, surveillance and safety equipment to meet the regulatory and compliance requirements of the booming cannabis industry.
The Cannabis industry is evolving rapidly and quickly leaving behind the taboos of an earlier era. Meanwhile, surveillance equipment installers view the industry as a major opportunity. DirectView”s management has discovered a strong need for custom-tailored security, surveillance, access control, safety equipment, and required security drawings and designs for CBD extraction facilities and Cannabis dispensaries.
DirectView, as a leading provider, and, through its wholly-owned subsidiaries of designers and installers of industry-leading access control, alarm monitoring products, and integrated video surveillance systems, are well-positioned to service the requirements for the cannabis industry.
Roger Ralston, CEO and Chairman of DirectView, said, ‘Businesses that operate in the legal cannabis space are required to follow strict regulatory guidelines. One of the most important requirements is proper Security, Surveillance and Safety Systems. Take Colorado as an example: They have dispensaries that operate entirely on cash and have large inventories of cannabis and related products. This creates an environment where top-of-the-line security and surveillance systems, like those provided by DirectView, are a necessity. In addition to cameras, access control systems are usually a prerequisite.’
In addition to extensive security and surveillance, CBD extraction facilities are required to take proper safety precautions. There is a risk of fire and explosions when dealing with flammable gasses and liquids in the production of CBD extracts, while C02 extraction can put occupants in danger from lowering the levels of oxygen. DirectView is a provider of class 1, division 1 explosion-proof cameras for special use in the CBD extraction rooms and in places where they otherwise are required.
‘What we”re seeing now are specialized extraction rooms; they have to be self-closing, they have to have an air exhaust system in place with panic hardware, and they have to have gas detectors present. In addition, special class 1 division 1 explosion-proof cameras, which we provide, are required,’ Roger Ralston, CEO & Chairman of DirectView, said. ‘We are seeing a unique opportunity to incorporate our access control solutions to these specialized extraction rooms as well. We believe this will prove to be a valuable vertical for DirectView,’ he concluded.
DirectView management looks forward to keeping its shareholders informed as new opportunities arise in the industry.
