Registration for Engineers of Tomorrow 2018 security & fire apprentice competition now open

Adding a fire installation challenge for the 20th anniversary year Registration for Engineers of Tomorrow 2018 has now opened, as the competition returns to IFSEC International for it s 20th anniversary year, 19-21 June 2018. This year the competition is taking a further step towards tackling the the growing engineering skills gap by adding a live installation challenge for fire apprentices, as well as for those from the security sector, following a successful trial in 2017. This will mean that in 2018, more than 60 young apprentices will compete against each other in teams of 2, live on the IFSEC show floor.

The 3 heat winning teams of security apprentices from this summer s Engineers of Tomorrow competition will be joining their industry next month at the Security Excellence Awards, where the overall winners will be awarded the 1000 prize. Next year the heat winners from both the security and fire challenges will receive their invitation to the awards, in addition to earning credits towards NVQ qualifications and fantastic industry recognition. Whether you re a security or fire apprentice, or the employer or college lecturer of apprentices, you can now register yourself or nominate a colleague for Engineers of Tomorrow 2018 here. embedded content Free Download: A Technical Guide to Fire Detection and Alarm Systems Fire legislation, which is written for the purpose of life safety, requires duty holders in non-domestic premises to assess fire risks and put in place arrangements for the prevention of fire and to protect people from fire when it occurs. This guide provides an overview of the need to know information for fire detection and alarm systems and your legal requirements, key actions, key terms and more.

Manything to integrate video monitoring app with Hikvision R6 platform

IFSEC 2017 Manything has been working with Hikvision to integrate its software with Hikvision R6 platform IP cameras in time for launch at IFSEC 2017. Manything provides an instant cloud for network cameras, so users can watch live feeds, access stored footage from the cloud and remotely control cameras from the Manything app or web viewer. Manything provides a brilliant cloud storage solution which can work alongside the Hikvision NVR for additional back up, said Jason Yang, Hikvision UK general manager.

Manything is also integrating its software with Axis cameras, which will launch later this year. No port-forwarding Manything automatically discovers compatible cameras on the network. One tap of the app adds Manything software to the camera in a set-up process that takes a few minutes, with no port-forwarding or router configuration. Network cameras running the Manything software are non-discoverable and have UPnP and NAT disabled. The camera password is encrypted and is not transmitted outside the local network. The Manything app is optimised to work in poor network conditions so if uplink is weak the app will adjust the recording specifications to ensure motion is still captured. Recorded events are saved in the cloud. Manything can replace the need for an NVR/DVR or work alongside these devices for additional back up. Depending on the subscription plan, footage stored in the cloud is accessible for varying amounts of time.

Manything is seeking partners to resell its cloud service for network cameras. For national distributors, in some cases Manything will offer a white label version of the app and web viewer. Installers linked to the distributor can upload their branding and contact details so their end users see installer/distributor co-branding when they use the app. Distributors will also have a branded web portal (or its API) to manage installer and end user accounts. Regional installers who resell directly from Manything can upload their branding and contact details into the existing Manything app so their end users see installer/Manything co-branding. They ll also have access to the Manything web portal to manage end user accounts.

London fire: Councils and social landlords have ignored our warnings for years

GRENFELL TOWER FIRE We have a right to be very angry at the news about Grenfell Tower. I regularly sit in meetings with fire safety professionals, and their fury and frustration at the inaction of local councils and social landlords is palpable. We have been warning about the risks of a fire like this for years.

What we need to get people to take notice is a huge fire in a tower block they say. Well, here it is. There is an endemic fire safety problem in this type of housing stock. I have walked around tower blocks documenting and filming the fire safety breaches. I ve seen flats without fire doors, no emergency lighting or signage on fire doors and escape routes, broken fire rated glass, wedged-open fire doors, poor fire stopping around service hatches that breach compartmentation, no smoke seals in fire doors, rubbish and combustible material left in the common areas, and no information displayed on the specific fire plan of the building. #Grenfell Tower floor plan. “Improved” high density layout means one set of stairs for 24 stories of 120 apartments. #LondonFire pic.twitter.com/MHV3adB5Q7 Mark Ashley (@themarkashley) June 14, 2017 Deaf ears But that information appears to fall on deaf ears. Action must be taken now to address these issues. Our hearts go out to the residents of Grenfell Tower, their neighbours, friends and families, and the extraordinarily brave fire fighters and medics who are continuing to deal with the emergency. And to every local council and housing association I say, you know what to do, take action today. The next one could be tomorrow.

More than half of all tenants (58%) and over 70% of lower income tenants have no idea who the Responsible Person is for the building where they live Research for Fire Door Safety Week last year underlines some of the problems, in particular showing that the poorest in society continue to be at greatest risk from fire, with lower income tenants more concerned about fire safety where they live, less informed about how to protect themselves, and less able to move away from perceived danger. Just a third (35%) of the lowest income households renting flats say they have been given information on the emergency fire plan for the building where they live, compared to 88% of tenants on incomes over 100,000 a year. Those on incomes of 25,000 or less are much less likely to feel completely safe from fire (27%) than those on incomes above 80,000 (44%). But two out of every nine (22%) households with incomes under 25,000 living in rented flats who have concerns over fire safety are unable to move because they can t afford to. More than half of all tenants (58%) and over 70% of lower income tenants have no idea who the Responsible Person is for the building where they live the person to whom they should usually report their fire safety concerns. And worryingly, 15% of all tenants living in blocks of flats who have got fire safety concerns have never reported those concerns to anyone at all.

An expert judging panel then rated nominations based on the nominations persuasiveness and their own knowledge about the nominee.

Judges also submitted their own nominations, which were similarly rated by other judges. In addition to the 50 influencers, there is an added category for installers, defined by excellence rather than influence. How do we define influential? This was anyone: Who has played a key role in driving technological innovation Who has been a driving force in changing regulation , standards/guidance or best practice Someone whose insights/opinions are widely respected and which are influential in shaping debate around industry issues Someone who has been instrumental in the success of the organisation or business they lead or are employed by Someone who has helped to raise the industry s profile or been an influential voice in the national media Our judges will be instructed to consider the nominees influence over the past five years, but to give greater weight to more recent achievements. Installers (fire and security) The criteria for installers was slightly different, being an individual not a company who has done some or all of the following: Consistently provided exceptional customer service Delivered a particular project, or many projects , to exceptionally high standards Been an innovator (eg, cutting average installation times/costs through adoption of new tech or change of process) Played a pivotal role in the success of their company (whether that is growing revenues, market share or reputation for excellence) Played a pivotal role in their company s diversification into new markets (eg IP, home automation, fire, etc) Visit Europe s only large-scale security event in 2017 IFSEC International is taking place at Excel London, 20 22 June 2017, here are 5 reasons you should attend: Exclusive hands-on access to over 10,000 brand new security solutions Network with over 27,000 security professionals Discounts of up to 30% exclusively for IFSEC 150 hours of seminars, workshops and keynote speeches A 1-2-1 meetings service to pre-book face to face meetings.

BSIA responds to cash courier shooting in London

Walthamstow shooting The trade body representing the private security industry in the UK has issued the following statement relating to the recent shooting of a cash-in-transit courier in Walthamstow, north-east London. The cash-in-transit courier was injured from the shooting ambush. James Kelly, chief executive of the British Security Industry Association (BSIA) said in a statement: Every day, cash-in-transit couriers perform a vital public service, transporting cash around the country and supporting banks, retailers and businesses by facilitating millions of financial transactions across the UK.

However, in doing so, they place themselves at risk of extreme violence, as today s incident sadly reminds us. Kelly goes on to point out that the number of attacks on cash-in-transit couriers remains at an all-time low. There were 76 injuries to cash-in-transit crew members, police and the wider public in 2016. However, the risk of violence and injury remains a very real threat to couriers. This is something that the private security industry together with its partners in police and government is continually working to reduce through initiatives like SaferCash, which shares intelligence about attacks and suspicious incidents between couriers and the police, continued Kelly. Our thoughts are with the injured courier and his family who have made a very personal sacrifice for the sake of our nation s economic security and we wish him a full and speedy recovery.

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.

Driven by rising concerns over public and private sector safety, the access control market is set to be worth a substantial $8.6 billion by 2018.

National approvals for CE-marked products an unnecessary barrier to trade, says EAPFP

Passive fire protection The European Association for Passive Fire Protection (EAPFP) has condemned additional national approvals for CE-marked construction products as an unreasonable barrier to trade and a clear contravention of European law. The association was responding to the introduction of a new national approval for some construction products in Germany, including passive fire protection. The current draft of the German Regulation (Verwaltungsvorschrift) does not permit the use of certain CE-marked construction products without an additional national document.

Called Bauartgenehmigung (acc. to 16a, Musterbauordnung/MBO, 2016) this links usage in a building directly to the product via the applied European testing and classification standards. By apparently declaring product-related requirements that already incorporate usage requirements as building-related requirements, the German authorities have created a variety of installation and job-site headaches, according to the EAPFP. Infringement of the Construction Product Regulation The association says that additional approvals, such as the requirement for construction products to declare all required performances for the use of such a product in the declaration of performance (DoP) or European technical assessment, are a barrier to trade. They therefore infringe the Construction Product Regulation (EU) No 305/2011, Article 8, para 4. This states that A Member State shall not prohibit or impede, within its territory or under its responsibility, the making available on the market or the use of construction products bearing the CE marking, when the declared performances correspond to the requirements for such use in that Member State. The EAPFP contends that the free movement of construction products is fundamental to the fortunes of the fire protective products industry and the construction sector as a whole. National barriers, potentially explainable and justifiable from historic perspectives, and related to short-term objectives, are detrimental in the long term to our market sector, and thus for the economies of European Member States, says EAPFP president Joric Witlox. EAPFP supports the CE-mark as the only mark, that assesses the product characteristics, allowing access to the market.

The association says its position on the issue is supported by the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU), which in a judgment on 16 October 2014, case C-100/13, also advised that Germany was impeding the free movement of construction products.
