Leading The Way In The Surveillance Industry
Mike Loumos has an extensive background in the security industry. He excelled in providing his customers with high-quality security guard services.

A Short Sit Down With Mike Loumos
We were able to catch up with Mike for a short interview and were excited to hear his thoughts on a few questions we had for him.
What is it about Alpha that inspires you most?
“The technology! It’s always interesting to learn about the new advancements in video surveillance technology and finding real-world use cases that our clients can benefit from.”
How has Alpha changed from when you first started to today?
“Oh man, where do I start? I would say the largest difference is how we’ve built a system that can learn and deploy new technologies extremely quickly. When I first began, we didn’t have the structure to research, learn and test new products. Now we do and this is absolutely imperative to be competitive and stay relevant. Another substantial change is with the culture. We have a team of talented individuals all working together with the same goal to improve every day. We’re all open to criticism and we take ownership of our mistakes. It’s an honor to work with the Alpha crew every day.”
What advice can you give to aspiring CEOs?
“Find something you are passionate about and work like hell.”
A Bright Future For Alpha Video Surveillance
As the year continues to progress, Mike has done an amazing job of keeping the Alpha Video Surveillance momentum moving forward even with today’s world’s struggles. Mike’s knowledge and willingness to innovate alongside some of the biggest video surveillance camera producers in the world has lead to new types of video/audio capable cameras and video management solutions that are currently being deployed and tested. The future of Alpha Video Surveillance will no doubt be very interesting and exciting as new technology becomes readily available that will enhance the services and products that Alpha can offer. The Security Industry never saw Mike and Alpha coming, and we have only just begun.
