Industry Era - 10 Best Security Solution Providers
For years, home and business video surveillance solutions have been primarily serviced by two extremes: big box store DIY kits and expensive security dealers. The security experts at Backstreet Surveillance realized the DIY market clearly had a void in services. No professional DIY support or resources existed for the handy homeowner or the business with an IT or maintenance department. Both possess the skill to pull cable and mount cameras but tend to lack the expertise to select security cameras, design home surveillance systems and solve installation challenges.
Since its inception, Backstreet has been designed to provide expert DIY security services nationwide. In basic terms, the customer provides the brawn and Backstreet provides the brains. The company operates an extensive and informative website backed by a fully staffed technical department, providing design, programming and troubleshooting services nationwide.
This business model has been a big winner for the company. As stated by the company’s CEO, “The business model is tried and proven, generating over $100 million in online sales.” The large sales volume allows the company to engineer their security cameras, select the highest quality performance specifications and set innovative standards. This effort has been overwhelmingly successful for the company, allowing them to offer the industry’s longest warranty of 5 years.
Backstreet’s website averages 3,000 visitors a day. Being internet based with a national reach means that the company is contacted daily with unique and challenging opportunities. From the homeowner that is in need of a better performing CCTV home surveillance system to the nuclear power plant that is searching for surveillance design expertise, Backstreet supports it all. We make sure that you get it right the first time.”

As of 2020, the city had a population of 200,133, ranking it as the 117th most populous city in the country. Salt Lake City is the central hub of the Salt Lake City metropolitan area, which recorded a population of 1,257,936 during the 2020 census.

This larger metropolitan area has an estimated population of 2,746,164 as of 2021, making it the 22nd largest in the United States. Notably, Salt Lake City and Reno, Nevada are the only major urban areas situated within the Great Basin.
The city of Salt Lake City was established on July 24, 1847, by early pioneers led by Brigham Young. These settlers, known as the Mormon pioneers, sought refuge from the persecution they had faced in the eastern regions. Upon arrival, they settled in a semi-arid valley and promptly initiated the construction of an extensive irrigation system to support the population and facilitate future growth. The city's street grid system follows a standard compass grid plan, with the southeast corner of Temple Square, where the Salt Lake Temple is located in downtown Salt Lake City, serving as the starting point for the Salt Lake meridian. Initially, the city was named Great Salt Lake City due to its proximity to the Great Salt Lake. However, in 1868, the word "Great" was removed from its name.

Situated approximately 20 miles south of Salt Lake City along the Wasatch Front, Draper has experienced significant population growth over the years. According to the 2020 census, the population stands at 51,017, a substantial increase from the 7,143 residents recorded in 1990.
Draper is unique in that it is part of two metropolitan areas. The portion of the city located in Salt Lake County falls within the Salt Lake City metropolitan area, while the Utah County portion is included in the Provo-Orem metropolitan area.
One notable feature of Draper is the presence of the Utah State Prison, which is situated near Point of the Mountain and runs alongside Interstate 15. It gained notoriety for being the site of Gary Gilmore's execution on January 17, 1977. In 2014, the Utah Legislature made the decision to relocate the state prison to Draper, and in 2015, they approved the Salt Lake City location recommended by the prison relocation commission. The Draper Prison is scheduled to close in 2022, with inmates being transferred to a new prison facility in Salt Lake City, set to be completed by mid-2022.
In terms of transportation, Draper benefits from two UTA TRAX stations: Draper Town Center, located at 12300/12400 South, and Kimball's Lane at 11800 South. Additionally, there is a TRAX station on the border of Sandy called Crescent View, situated at 11400 South. The city's west side is served by a FrontRunner commuter rail station.

Originally established in 1859 by Mormon settlers and historically known as an agricultural community, South Jordan has rapidly transformed into a burgeoning residential area closely connected to Salt Lake City.

This ambitious project has the potential to double the city's population.
