The guys at The Security Pro are experts in home security systems. They had decades of experience in the business under their belt and wanted to start a new line of business. They wanted to offer a one-stop-shop for other security professionals to obtain the materials needed to be successful. This would include printed promotional materials, video training, and even websites eventually. Security professionals would also have the option of signing up for a monthly subscription to receive discounts and access to custom material.
The web application needed to solve all of the problems was going to be a beast! There needed to be numerous moving parts such as e-commerce, user management/access control, customized printed materials, subscription management, HD video management, and a content management system to handle everything else. Surprisingly, this application was completed in Joomla by heavily customizing multiple components to perform the various operations. Virtuemart was used to handle the e-commerce portion with some heavy development finesse on my part. For the subscriptions and user management, I used OSE Membership with some pretty serious PHP modifications as well. The video section was an HD Video Player that I modified to include PDF attachments, and I did some really slick front end work to display, sort, and search the videos. In the end, it was a major project with a ton of custom code that turned out real nice. Design by Brianna Reed on this one with CMS, back end build out, and some front end magic performed by Webstasy.
