Major Expansion in the Cannabis Space Triggers Security and Surveillance Demand Increase
New York, NY -- May 2, 2019 -- InvestorsHub NewsWire -- Stock Market Press -- Explosive growth continues in the Cannabis space. This growth rate is only expected to increase as more states in the USA and more countries across the world warm up to cannabis. This includes both marijuana and hemp plant varieties, something that in the USA was previously marked as Schedule 1 by the FDA but has seen some easing of restrictions with the recent passage of the Farm Bill, allowing for Hemp/CBD to be removed from the Schedule 1 classification.
Along with the easing of restrictions, an increase in security and surveillance has been required by the various governing bodies in the USA as well as other countries. As the Cannabis industry grows, companies like DirectView Holdings, Inc. (OTC: DIRV) are seeing a significant increase in business, specifically when related to cannabis cultivation, processing and sales. Providing a turnkey security-surveillance solution for all companies, big and small, in the cannabis industry goes hand in hand with the ability of the industry to flourish. Yesterday they announced plans to expand with a new location, to meet this growing demand, as a central hub for everything from inventory and training to showroom, call center and more.
DirectView Holdings, Inc. (OTC: DIRV), a company focused on ownership and management of leading video and security technology companies, today announced that it plans to address certain requirements by leasing a new multipurpose facility in the Dallas, Texas area. The new facility is planned to contain a showroom for customers, a training facility for clients and employees, a call center for technical support and sales, a distribution office, warehouse space for inventory and shipping, and additional sales and management offices. The recent growth of DirectView and its subsidiaries is attributed to the need for a larger, more complex facility.
As noted in DirectView’s press release on March 11th, 2018 (DirectView Enters Smart Home Market with Google Home, Nest, & Amazon Ring Products), the Company’s wholly-owned subsidiary, ApexCCTV.com, recorded an increase in orders and revenue of 172% and 185%, respectively. Total traffic to the ecommerce website increased by 43%, and the Company has recently added roughly 1,000 new products, including Google (GOOG) Home, Nest, and Amazon (AMZN) Ring products, further attributing to the need for more warehouse space.
Having concluded a record year of sales growth and customer headcount, DirectView’s investment in a new facility will provide space for training employees and also provide a traning center for clients and office space to provide pre and post installation support. The new facility is anticipated to host a state-of-the-art showroom demonstrating its various security, surveillance, and access control systems to new clients. Warehouse space will be reserved to ensure product availability and space for order fulfillment will ensure timely delivery of products.

The Cannabis Conference 2019 shed light on the fact that companies are concerned about the security-surveillance requirements which vary by state/country. Meeting these needs is critical to success, let alone growth, of any company in the cannabis space. Spot inspections are commonplace and knowing they have a dedicated security-surveillance team in place, allows these companies to focus on cultivation and those specific requirements, without the headaches added by monitoring security equipment, data storage, etc. Some states, like Pennsylvania, require 2 years worth of video surveillance archiving. Staying ahead of the regulators and inspectors is paramount to growth of the industry. As a result, companies like DirectView Holdings, Inc. (OTC: DIRV) can alleviate the security-surveillance headaches and they can focus on CBD/THC cultivation/production/sales.
