A rogue s gallery of fire doors unworthy of the name (and perfectly good ones rendered useless)

#firedoorsafetyweek Some fire doors pictured below are so incompetently installed an otherwise serious topic descends into absurd comedy. Unfortunately, having a stair-rail passing through a hole carved into the door (I kid you not) would have grave consequences were a fire to break out. Lifted from Twitter (big thanks to Theodore Firedoor and FireDoorGuy) and Fire Door Safety Week s toolkit) the gallery features plenty of more prosaic, typical problems too big gaps between doors and around the perimeter, slapdash use of sealant, doors wedged open and the like.

There are also a couple of correctly installed fire doors at the bottom, standing proudly unbowed and un-breached after a fire ripped through the creative block of a Dorset school in 2015. IFSEC Global is proud to support Fire Door Safety Week, which runs from 25 September to 1 October. You can pledge your support for the campaign here, and by tweeting under the hashtag #FireDoorSafetyWeek and sharing or using the wealth of resources found in the campaign s toolkit.

It s truly an honor to speak with a former member of the Royal Navy and co-creator of the SaaS solution incorporating cloud solutions for public sector and major enterprise customers. Before discussing recent trends and developments, please elaborate for us about your background. Graham Porter: In security, a mixed background appears helpful. Originally an electrical engineer, I was tasked with management of HM Trident submarine fleet electronic security originally to cover a G8 security conference, but thereafter to modernise the systems and processes around securing the naval base which housed the GB atomic weapons arsenal and associated accessories. For 7 years plus I worked with Cisco as part of their emerging technology team, based in London. Prior to that, I attach a BIO for your further interest.

Dell EMC Q&A: “Customers don’t want vendors pointing the finger at each other when there’s a problem; they want integrated…

Dell EMC specialises in hybrid cloud and big-data solutions that are built on converged infrastructure, servers, storage and cybersecurity technologies for enterprise customers. Nicholas Thermenos, the company s director of sales and marketing for surveillance and security in the Americas, spoke to our US-based media partner SecuritySolutionsWatch about the video surveillance landscape and how the industry is meeting soaring demand for video data storage. SecuritySolutionsWatch.com: Thank you for joining us today, Nick.

Before drilling down into how Dell EMC is making the world safer, please tell us about your background. Nicholas Thermenos: Since joining Dell EMC I ve been in a variety of technology leadership positions. I m currently responsible for our video surveillance sales strategy and business for the Americas. Prior to joining Dell EMC I spent 11 years at Microsoft in both technical and business leadership roles. SecuritySolutionsWatch.com: Manchester, Paris, Boston the security environment has never been more challenging. What trends are you seeing in the field with your customers as the never-ending race continues to make better decisions faster vs. the bad guys? Nicholas Thermenos: Video Surveillance is going through a fast-paced digital transformation from low cost, decentralized data repositories to true Enterprise Class, centralized infrastructure requirements. The increase in IP cameras, retention times, and the assurance that data will be available when needed, is moving customers to find new way to retain, store and access video surveillance data.

Business leaders are beginning to recognize that there are valuable insights to be gained from the vast amount of data that is being collected. Customers, particular business leaders, are looking to capitalize on the data contained in these video images. Both of these trends are changing the landscape of storing and accessing video.

Aurora debuts long range facial recognition sensor at IFSEC 2017

IFSEC 2017 launch Facial recognition technology developer Aurora has unveiled at IFSEC 2017 a long range sensor that extends near infrared capabilities to a wider range of distances, making it suitable for more applications. Queue management, surveillance and VIP identification are possible applications with the technological advance. Aurora s specialist biometric imaging and illumination technology is designed to work with the latest versions of the company s deep learning-based facial recognition engines.

With its near IR -based facial recognition, Aurora has logged millions of successful events in applications, including time and attendance, airport passenger management and access control. Now, the company s core technology, FaceSentinel LR, uses high speed global shutter technology and a high brightness near-IR ceramic flash to deliver HDR still frames to Aurora s facial recognition engine. Aurora s head of sales and marketing Gary James says FaceSentinel LR addresses issues common in the operation of facial recognition with visible light CCTV images. This can hinder accuracy in situations where the subject s face is not directly looking at the camera. James says: The sensor is highly compact, with very low power consumption, despite its powerful output and processing ability. This extends the operational range of our IR face recognition capability fivefold, opening up many new applications such as queue monitoring and covert identification. At IFSEC Aurora is also showcasing its FaceSentinel sensor integrated with the Fastlane Glassgate 300 turnstile, operating in both token-free Identification mode that allows registered users access simply by looking at the sensor and Verification mode, which adds a biometric layer to the functionality of any access control system. FaceSentinel uses artificial and infrared light to achieve unparalleled facial recognition speed, accuracy and reliability. Aurora s facial recognition technology is used throughout Heathrow Airport for boarding pass verification as well as within British Airways domestic self-boarding gates.

Integrated Design Limited (IDL) is the designer and manufacturer of Fastlane Turnstiles and Door Detective anti-tailgating products, and has over 30 years of experience and a worldwide on and installation network. At IFSEC International 2017, FaceSentinel and FaceSentinel LR are running on Integrated Design Limited s stand E1550. The company makes turnstiles and door tailgating detection products.
