My name is Mike Haldas. I am a co-founder and managing partner at CCTV Camera Pros. CCTV Camera Pros is a direct supplier of security cameras, video surveillance systems, and CCTV equipment for home, business, and government. My responsibilities at the company include new product research, development, systems integration, testing, quality assurance, documentation, and marketing. I am the primary contributor to the CCTV Camera Pros blog, where I regularly publish articles and videos.
Before starting CCTV Camera Pros with Greg, I worked for ten years as software engineer and product manager. I was on a team that designed and developed an enterprise cloud hosting platform and eCommence applications.
Prior to that, I proudly served for four years in the United States Marine Corps from 1993 to 1997, where I achieved the rank of sergeant (E-5). In 1996, I was awarded a US Navy Achievement Medal for developing a client / server database application to manage the gear inventory and issue for my crash fire & rescue unit. This was a very proud moment for me. It led me down the path to continue my education and career in the area of computer science.
In 2009, while working at CCTV Camera Pros, I designed the first free iPhone app available in the Apple App Store that was capable of viewing live video from IP cameras remotely over the Internet. There were no other free IP camera viewer apps available in the App Store at the time. The others cost several hundred dollars. The app is called iCamViewer. We also developed a version of of the app for Android. This led to the development of a mobile CMS platform and a new startup company called AppBurst. For several years, I split my work time between designing mobile apps at AppBurst and supplying security camera systems at CCTV Camera Pros. AppBurst was sold in 2016 and my full time focus has resumed at CCTV Camera Pros ever since.
I consider myself a subject matter expert in the area of video surveillance system design, customer service / support operations, quality assurance, software development, mobile app development, product design, business development, and marketing. Basically, all of the hats that an owner must wear to run a small business nowadays.
In addition to the traditional duties that I have at CCTV Camera Pros, my services have also been used in the following ways.
- Guest appearance on Restoration Wild TV show on Animal Planet
- Subject matter expert for news articles and televised news broadcasts
- Litigation trial consultant as an expert witness in the area of security cameras and video surveillance
