IP Pro Tech Origin

Founded in 2004 by Lyle Warnke, an OIT graduate, philanthropist, and visionary, IP Pro Tech has evolved from its early days into a leading force in the electronic security industry.

Early Days

In the wake of the emergence of the first IP camera, IP Pro Tech entered the scene, situated in the same city as the U.S. headquarters of industry software leader and IP Pro Tech Partner, Milestone Systems. Specializing initially in the design and sales of open architecture, server-based IP video recording systems with third-party VMS software, we navigated a landscape dominated by analog CCTV systems, which held the lion’s share of the market at a fraction of the cost.

During this era, our clientele comprised forward-thinking entities such as state government departments, banks, utilities, healthcare facilities, and industrial sites, who embraced the promise of scalability and future-proof technology. Today, while much of the hardware has been upgraded, the UTP cables we installed two decades ago continue to deliver high-resolution video 24/7/365.

In 2010, Lyle Warnke, drawn away by corporate demands, left a lasting legacy before stepping aside, transferring ownership to a dedicated staff member. Even after two decades, Lyle remains at the forefront of technology.

Present Day

Now, as IP video systems have become ubiquitous, surpassing analog systems in market share, IP Pro Tech has grown beyond its visionary roots. What began as a design and sales firm has matured into a licensed wiring contractor and installing dealer for the finest brands in electronic security. Expanding our services, we introduced a commercial door and locksmith department in 2015.

At IP Pro Tech, we leverage best practices developed over two decades to efficiently deliver high-quality systems at exceptional value. While our pride lies in applying proven methodologies, we always keep one eye on the future, ensuring our legacy of providing cutting-edge advancements to early adopters endures. Join us in shaping the future of electronic security.

IP Pro Tech ID Machines. IP Cameras and intercoms are used to create ID machine.

This distinctive ID machine serves as a pivotal element within the expansive point-to-multipoint wireless security network meticulously crafted by IP Pro Tech. This comprehensive system effectively automates and economically oversees operations at a large auto warehousing facility from a remote monitoring station.

Controlled Remotely

Controlled remotely, the monitoring station exercises command over two tiers of automatic gates at both the entrance and exit points. Upon arrival, truck drivers destined for this location engage with an ID machine stationed outside the entrance gate. Through a full-duplex audio/video intercom, drivers communicate with the station, presenting their identification for verification and recording. This streamlined process mirrors the exit procedure, where drivers scan barcodes on their paperwork.

The monitoring station maintains vigilant oversight of the entire lot around the clock, facilitated by strategically positioned high-resolution cameras, including PTZ and thermal variants. Augmented by PA horns strategically placed throughout the premises, the station can offer assistance anywhere on the lot and issue authoritative commands or warnings to unauthorized individuals.

The Contrast

In contrast to the labor-intensive past, when the secure lot demanded a continuous onsite presence, the implementation of automation has revolutionized operations. Previously necessitating at least one person on-site 24/7 to manage access, the financial burden was substantial, exceeding the costs of four full-time shifts, inclusive of benefits, overtime, payroll taxes, and workers’ compensation insurance on a weekly basis. The IP Pro Tech solution not only enhances security but also significantly reduces operational expenses for seamless, efficient control of the facility.
