Wiring in the evolving smart home Technology is increasingly infiltrating the home. With virtually all household technologies part of the home network, a simple phone line and TV antenna is no longer adequate to support the technology that is now available to homeowners. As a result, many require comprehensive wiring infrastructures and data network systems that are suitable for the modern smart home. In order to prevent opportunists from doing it themselves , it s crucial for security professionals to offer a a service that benefits homeowners. A correctly wired infrastructure at the very first stage of building or renovating is fundamental to homeowners who want technology. A common phrase heard among the home technology industry is the most expensive cable you have to install is the one that did not get installed in the first place . The basis of a smart home is the infrastructure, the cables. Not all properties require technology at this stage. But it is crucial for the correct wiring to be in place so that it is ready for the future.

A wired infrastructure can set up the home for future applications, whilst still preserving the d cor of the home and adding value. The rise of smart wiring presents a great opportunity for security professionals. The home technology sector presents a lucrative opportunity for these professionals to expand their reach and create new business.

Genetec announced as sponsor for Borders & Infrastructure Expo

IFSEC International 2017 Genetec, the company behind unified security platform Security Center, has been confirmed as sponsor for IFSEC International s brand new show within a show , Borders & Infrastructure Expo (20-22 June 2017). Genetec is a good fit for Borders & Infrastructure Expo, which is pitched at critical national infrastructure. The company s security systems are popular in the enterprise space, with many customers in high end retail, train stations, airports Genetec systems are installed in 70% of airports in the Middle East and the the city surveillance space.

Its most prominent platforms are Security Center, which unifies access control, surveillance and ANPR systems; the Omnicast IP video management system (VMS); the Synergis TM IP access control system; and AutoVu automatic license plate recognition system. Cybersecurity is now a major focus. We recently spoke to Simon Cook, sales engineering manager EMEA and APAC, about the company s defining mantra: the security of security. embedded content Speaking at the show s launch event in October, IFSEC brand director Gerry Dunphy outlined the vision for a new show within a show which will meet the need for Britain s and the World s response to the growing terror and security threat. Borders & Infrastructure, which will take place between 20-22 June 2017 as part of IFSEC International and the wider Protection & Management Series, will feature products, solutions and visionary content aimed at central and local government, transport and utilities, sports stadia and events, logistics, border security and law enforcement, and offers a significant addition to the usual array of products and services that you can usually see at what is already Europe s largest security show. In view of the existing broad horizon of security products on offer at IFSEC, it will richly enhance IFSEC s position as the UK and Europe s industry-defining event in the security sector. IFSEC brand director Gerry Dunphy Dunphy outlined the reasoning s behind this welcome addition to the IFSEC lineup: The heightened terror threat, unprecedented migration levels and the growing cyber threat mean that demand is huge for a show like Borders & Infrastructure. Cyber security, counter-terror, border security and protecting critical infrastructure are near the top of the priorities list of governments in Europe and around the world. Attended by a wide range of manufacturers and customers including representatives from the Home Office s Security Industry Engagement Team, last night s guests heard keynote speaker Sir David Veness CBE, ex-Metropolitan Police and former UN Under-Secretary-General for Safety and Security, preview the findings of a London First report into the potential impact of Brexit on the security and resilience industries.

The event also included an address from the BSIA s Director of People, Trevor Elliott, who welcomed the addition of IFSEC s new event. Dunphy also added: In view of the existing broad horizon of security products on offer at IFSEC, it will richly enhance IFSEC s position as the UK and Europe s industry-defining event in the security sector. Borders & Infrastructure will take IFSEC to an even higher level, providing deeply enriching and strategic security solutions for major customers. With its own, distinctive branding, can sign up to an exclusive VIP 1-2-1 meetings service free of charge which matches them with potential suppliers, partners or customers.

The new event will feature everything from airport security tech to physical perimeter protection and even drones (the new area will incorporate the Drone Zone, which returns for a second year). UBM Group Director Simon Mills, who introduced last night s speakers, said: The strategic addition of Borders & Infrastructure to IFSEC is a historic moment in the 30-year-plus development of the IFSEC brand. It should be viewed as something very different to the show s more traditional elements. IFSEC International is proud to announce that Borders & Infrastructure has the support of the BSIA, ASIS, BRE Global and the Security Institute.

Professor Brian Cox to headline IFSEC and FIREX 2017

Professor Brian Cox OBE, Dame Kelly Holmes and Simon Weston CBE have been confirmed as keynote speakers for IFSEC and FIREX International 2017. Securing the services of Professor Cox is quite a coup for the P&M (Protection & Management) Series, which co-locates IFSEC, FIREX, the Safety & Health Show, Field Service Management Expo, Facilities Show and Professional Clothing Show. The eminent physicist, presenter of the BBC s The Wonders Of series and prolific scientific writer topped a recent poll of preferred keynote speakers among the P&M audience by a wide margin.

As well as presenting numerous TV and radio programmes (like Radio 4 s Infinite Monkey Cage) Cox is professor of particle physics at the School of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Manchester. He is also the author of bestsellers Why Does E=mc ? and The Quantum Universe, while 950 scientific publications bear his name. Challenging any perception that physicists as socially awkward, badly dressed nerds, he was, somewhat incongruously, also a keyboard player for bands D:Ream and Dare in the 1990s and has become something of a pin-up. IFSEC International takes place 20-22 June 2017, London ExCeL. Get your free badge now. Dame Kelly Holmes won Gold for Great Britain (No team GB in those days) in the 800 metres and 1500 metres at the 2004 Athens Olympics. She still holds the British records for the 600, 800 and 1000 metre distances. Holmes, who for several years combined athletics with being a Sergeant Class 1 PTI in the army, has admitted to suffering from depression.

In 2008, Holmes founded the Dame Kelly Holmes Trust, to support and develop athletes beyond sport, who then deliver on every single one of their transformational mentoring programmes for young people facing disadvantage. Simon Weston CBE is a British army veteran who rose to prominence after suffering severe burn injuries in 1982 during the Falklands War. Weston, who survived an attack on the warship on which he was stationed with 46% burns, has undergone countless operations in the years since. Weston was awarded an OBE in 1992 in recognition of charity work, notably in founding The Weston Spirit , a Liverpool-based young people s charity. He was also listed as one of the top 100 Welsh Heroes in 2004 and in 2014 was voted top of the UK`s Heroes Index. IFSEC International takes place 20-22 June 2017, London ExCeL.
