Vanderbilt to demonstrate SPC Connect and ACT365 at IFSEC 2017

Cloud-based solutions At IFSEC International 2017, being held 20-22 June in London s ExCeL, Vanderbilt will be exhibiting its cloud-based security products and services. Alongside Vanderbilt s access control, intrusion and video products, the company will also be demonstrating SPC Connect, which allows installers to monitor, manage, and maintain Vanderbilt SPC panels remotely from portable electronic devices including smartphones. Also on display will be ACT365, Vanderbilt s integrated access control and video management system, which allows for remote setup, servicing and support.

Both are cloud-based so the power, scalability and simplicity of the cloud can be leveraged for the delivery of new features. Joe Grillo, CEO of Vanderbilt, says: Having transformed other areas of business and industry, the cloud is now set to revolutionise the security industry. The cloud is the name given to computing functions and services hosted off-site. These tend to be provided as a service and can be accessed over any internet-enabled device. Market research firm IDC recently estimated that cloud services will grow 24% to $122 billion ( 94 billion) in 2017. Of this, software-as-a-service business applications, such as Vanderbilt s SPC Connect and ACT365, will attract 60% of all cloud spending. The cloud lets security installers set up, manage and maintain large, networked security systems remotely, so they can reduce site visits, saving time and money, by addressing service issues that can be resolved remotely instead. embedded content End-users benefit from a system that can be maintained more efficiently and reconfigured and adapted as their requirements change. Cloud-based security products and offerings from Vanderbilt help integrate core security functions such as access control, intrusion and video.

As an example, ACT365 allows remote verification of a building s visitor from real-time video images captured at the point of entry. Access can then be granted remotely. If a door is forced or an alarm is activated, ACT365 gives users immediate recall and locates recorded footage of the incident. This eliminates time and effort traditionally required to match up times on different security systems and sift through camera footage to locate an incident. Borrowing from the pay-as-you-go model common to most cloud services, Vanderbilt s cloud-based solutions are affordable and offer flexibility for growing organisations. Vanderbilt is sharing its expertise in cloud-based security solutions in a presentation called Cloud on the Horizon: Are you prepared? that will address a range of topics and provide advice for those seeking to integrate their security needs with cloud computing. Check out the latest security solutions from Vanderbilt at IFSEC International, 20-22 June 2017, London ExCeL. You can find them on stand E1225.

Genetec releases latest version of off-street parking enforcement software Free-Flow

Security Center During the 2017 International Parking Institute (IPI) Conference and Expo, Montreal-headquartered Genetec will demonstrate the latest version of Free-Flow, its off-street parking enforcement software. Genetec, a provider of open architecture software, hardware and cloud-based solutions for security and public safety, will be at booth number 1115 at the IPI conference and expo in New Orleans on 24 May. The company is also exhibiting at IFSEC International 2017, Europe s largest security exhibition, at London ExCeL, between 20-22 June.

Free-Flow will be offered within Genetec Security Center, the company s holistic security platform that combines video surveillance, access control and automatic license plate recognition. Using AutoVu Free-Flow, parking enforcement officers can identify lots with unenforced violations and then adjust their patrol routes in response to improve the rates at which they record and process violations. Compliance Increasingly parking property owners are choosing to implement gateless parking to reduce vehicle congestion and improve convenience for parking. AutoVu Free-Flow allows owners to maintain compliance with parking rules in the absence of gates. As Free-Flow now forms part of Security Center, parking managers can monitor occupancy and violations across all parking lots under their management, from one location. Genetec Plan Manager is an interactive and graphical mapping application allowing operators to visualise and manage environments. With Plan Manager and Free-Flow in Security Center, parking lot owners can navigate and oversee many car parks via the installed automatic licence plate recognition that is also installed with Security Center. Free-Flow provides parking officers a real-time view of how many vehicles are in parking lots across all their facilities, and how many are parked illegally. With these precise details of where and when violations are taking place, parking managers know where to dispatch officers to ensure higher compliance, says Charles Pitman, Genetec s product marketing manager at Genetec.

All attendees to the IPI trade show are welcome to attend A Pragmatic Look at Big Data: Perspectives from License Plate Recognition , which Pitman is presenting. The first series of updates for Genetec Free-Flow are expected to be available at the end of May 2017 with further updates planned in July 2017. Genetec also recently integrated gunshot detection into Security Center and expanded its access control platform with SimonsVoss e-locks.

Trial of passive infrared sensors deemed a success

OPTEX A trial of outdoor, wireless passive infrared sensors (PIRS) could lead to more deployments in residential security applications. OPTEX has been working with Wolverhampton-based Amron Security to protect an isolated residential property in the west Midlands countryside in the UK. As the home is exposed on all four sides by main roads and fields, the owner was concerned the property, including detached garages, would be a target for intruders.

Paul Bishop, contracts manager and senior installer at Amron Security, showed initial scepticism when OPTEX proposed using wireless PIRS technology. He says: As an installer I feel more comfortable using outdoor sensors only when alarms can be visually verified remotely, as it is far from ideal for false or nuisance alarms to trigger with no possibility for verification. However, I haven t experienced any false alarm problems with these outdoor PIRS, which have performed flawlessly. According to Bishop the technology has performed to such a high standard that Amron Security has started specifying OPTEX s sensors at further sites. Since the installation in 2016 there has not been a single false alarm. Paul Bishop, contracts manager and senior installer, Amron Security The PIRS specified by OPTEX include five of its VXI-R and two FTN-R sensors. They have some of the lowest false alarm rates and highest detection rates in the industry. Both types are battery-operated detectors that wirelessly connect to a Ricochet-enabled alarm panel via OPTEX s pre-configured and pre-connected Ricochet-enabled wireless transmitter, the BGR-01, which is fitted into the back of each sensor. The VXI-R sensors have a 12m wide angle of detection, while the FTN-R sensors provide a shorter detection range in a curtain-like pattern.

Combining the two variants optimises the level of security defence around a property. All of the tamper-proof sensors are equipped with OPTEX s latest analytics programming that includes small animal tolerance and enhanced weather protection to avoid false alarms. The battery life is around three years. Amron Security maintains the sensors and provides a remote monitoring service. Since the installation in 2016 there has not been a single false alarm, says Bishop. OPTEX is a Japan-headquartered global supplier of security detectors based on IR, for indoor and outdoor applications.

Panasonic to take new direction at IFSEC

IFSEC International 2017 Panasonic Business is set to launch a new direction for its European security business at IFSEC 2017, asking the industry to change how CCTV is perceived and procured. Panasonic proprietary technology such as rain wash coating, dehumidification and smart coding technology reduce the overall cost of maintaining and operating CCTV technology. In order to place a value on this, the company has commissioned an ROI calculator, which it will present at IFSEC, which compares the lifetime cost of security cameras from leading manufacturers to determine which provides best long term value.

The calculator examines the cost of data storage and transmission, maintenance and cleaning, the potential risks associated with poor cyber security as well as the revenue generative potential of people counting and age and gender recognition technology. For a couple of years Panasonic has been talking about how its unique embedded camera technologies reduce the total cost of ownership, said John Boyle country manager for Panasonic UK. In addition, our ability to offer end to end cyber security protects organisations against data breaches and prepares them for forthcoming changes to data protection law. So, the traditional approach of procuring on the cost of the camera doesn t do us any favours and we need to change the way the market views the buying of security technology. This year at IFSEC, we want to initiate some new discussions with some system integration partners, who recognise that the cost of the box is only the start of the journey. As a platform for exposure at IFSEC 2017, Panasonic have invested in exclusive sponsorship of the Security Management Theatre, at the same time as partnering with organisers UBM to provide a Panasonic branded meeting space. Through the IFSEC Meetings Service, key security markets such as city surveillance, banking and retail will be able to book meetings directly with Panasonic at the event. The company will also present seminar topics on cyber security, maintenance free city surveillance and smart compression technology across the event at London s ExCeL Centre. We want to take a more consultative approach.

We want to understand the challenges that our SIs have and chat through how Panasonic s uniquely wide technology portfolio can meet their increasingly complex needs, added John Boyle.
