Detroit-based MIST Innovations, Inc. has developed software that allows people to watch security cameras from cell phones.
Formerly known as SecureCom Technologies, the company changed its name to the MIST acronym, making clear their focus: Mobility. Information. Security. Technology.
The change must be working with clients because the firm started with two people when it moved into downtown Detroit in 2007, and now employs 18. Even more promising is MIST's expectation to add a dozen more positions within the next 18 months.
The company recently signed an agreement with Verizon, allowing its users to watch a live screening of security video from their cell phone.
The program provides a high-quality picture and fluidity that makes the images on the cell phone appear lifelike.
