Deliveries on your doormat even if you re out thanks to a smart new service from ASSA ABLOY and PostNord

In Sweden, a new smart door lock from ASSA ABLOY is making the While you were out delivery card a thing of the past. PostNord customers can now choose to have parcels delivered inside their front door, if it is equipped with an ASSA ABLOY smart lock. It should be simple and convenient to shop online, says Johan Hellman, Head of eCommerce at PostNord.

We ll now be able to deliver items inside the front door in a secure way. The recipient doesn t need to be at home or be available at a particular time, which makes it both simple and convenient. The new service works via a PIN code issued automatically to an authorised PostNord delivery driver. The code opens a recipient s front door just once, so PostNord can leave a parcel on the inside. Now, there s no need for customers to wait in all day, or make a special journey to a collection point. It s another real-world example of smart door locks making life easier. The new service is simple to operate. Customers select home delivery from a participating e-retailer, in the usual way, and approve a specific delivery time slot using their mobile phone. If customers select home delivery inside the front door , their PostNord driver automatically receives a single-use PIN code to open the lock.

The code becomes invalid instantly and automatically after delivery; the customer s phone is notified again when the parcel is delivered. Pilot project A pilot project is already under way in Lerum, near Gothenburg, in conjunction with some of Scandinavia s major e-retailers. Approximately 100 households are trialling this new, ultra-convenient delivery option. With new and innovative products, such as our Yale Doorman lock, customers have an opportunity to simply and securely avail themselves of different services without having to be at home, says Kristoffer Wadman, Director Business Development at ASSA ABLOY Scandinavia. The project illustrates one of many ways a smart door lock can boost convenience and security for everyone. With a smart front door, homeowners no longer have to carry cumbersome keys; there s no need to cut a spare set for a cleaner, the kids or a cat-sitter. With a smart lock, you can let guests in remotely via an app, send them a digital key, or provide a temporary or single-use PIN to open the door. Digital keys are also safer than metal ones: they can t be copied or stolen, and can be instantly revoked if they fall into the wrong hands.

Ethernet over coax too often overlooked as a cost-effective migration path to IP, says AMG Systems

IP surveillance Organisations deterred from migrating to IP CCTV from analogue systems on cost grounds should consider leveraging existing coaxial cable, according to AMG Systems. The proportion of surveillance systems that are IP-based has been growing steadily for many years. However, our IDIS-sponsored Video surveillance report 2017 revealed that 21% of installed systems are still analogue-based and sales of analogue cameras still continue in surprisingly reasonable numbers.

AMG Systems is a UK-based manufacturer of edge-of-network transmission, including fibre, analogue, IP/ethernet, wireless and hybrid communication solutions. Ian Creary, AMG sales and technical support manager, says the reluctance to upgrade for cost reasons is understandable. They are worried that the migration to IP simply won t fit their budget, he says. And it can be a sizeable investment, particularly if you have previously poured resources into a substantial analogue cabling infrastructure. Labour requirements But Creary says that IP migrations need not be so expensive. There is a very large legacy install base of coaxial cable in existence, mainly related to analogue CCTV, and making use of this as a part of any analogue to IP system migration plan could certainly prove to be a cost-effective option, he explains. Without the requirement to install new cabling, labour requirements reduce dramatically. This can mean an ethernet over coax install can cost as little as 25% of the expense of a full IP upgrade. The advantages of an ethernet-over-coax solution are in the simplicity of its design and application: installation is easy and the data and images it provides are reliable, so everyone involved saves money.

Ethernet-over-coax products provide an easy-to-connect, transparent network that is very simple to use, reliable, and offers seamless integration between the existing coaxial cable and the ethernet backbone of the new system. Ian Creary, AMG sales and technical support manager Ethernet-over-coax products are invariably point-to-point: from a locally powered transceiver at the camera to a locally powered receiver at the control room. Adequate for smaller organisations, the point-to-point design needs strengthening where a large number of cameras are involved. A better solution for these larger systems that still want to benefit from utilising their existing analogue infrastructure is use a PoE switch, with four PoE ports and one coax uplink port at the camera, he says. This gives the user more leverage of their existing cabling system, and truly allows an easy and cost-effective upgrade to IP cameras. Ethernet cabling and devices powered over ethernet require the installation of additional networking products every 100 metres. This often means that power has to be sourced in locations that are difficult to access. This usually requires a lockable closet, cabinet or enclosure and units with power supplies inside, says Creary. Ethernet-over-coax devices, however, can be powered from a PoE switch, and deliver power over ethernet up to 300m.

There are no repeaters or other networking products required, so the distance issue is addressed without an impact on the project budget. Ethernet-over-coax should be as appealing to installers as it is to end users, suggests Creary. Ethernet-over-coax products provide an easy-to-connect, transparent network that is very simple to use, reliable, and offers seamless integration between the existing coaxial cable and the ethernet backbone of the new system. The solution itself can be a simple design, and application is even more straightforward. Importantly, the data carried over the EoC network is robust and reliable, allowing for the transmission of high quality images and other sensitive security content. Ethernet-over-coax technology will enable more installers to approach an IP migration project with a new set of financial and installation options. The end result is a high-performance system that saves all parties involved time, money, and concerns over flexibility and adaptability.

Norwich Door To Door

Welcome to Norwich Door to Door:

Access Able Transport for All Ages

To enable social inclusion and enhance quality of life for people with severe mobility problems on low incomes in Norwich and districts. We offer fully accessible mobility bus services with affordable fares, for independence, equality, safety and security so that our members are empowered to make their own contribution to their community.

Who we are

We are a caring and welfare charity. We formed in 1992 and continue to work with the same aims and objectives.

We offer a Dial-a-Ride service for people who are on low income, who need extra help and a friendly hand to be able to get out and about independently. For our passengers and their carers transport is the key to freedom and autonomy and there is the added assurance of the safety and security of a door to door service.

Our passengers tell us they want to be able to choose when they travel. They want to be able to plan days when they feel well and have access to support that empowers them. They want to make their own contribution to their own society in their own way.

How do we do it

We operate a fleet of ten mobility buses all equipped with to the ground front of bus steps, passenger lifts big enough for wheelchairs, walking aids and scooters, and a Multipurpose Vehicle for up to three passengers with a drive in wheelchair ramp. Each bus operates with a two person crew who receive accredited training for operating mini buses suitable for the safe carriage of people travelling in their wheelchairs.

To contribute to our budget in today s more austere funding environment, we have secured contracts to transport disabled children to special and mainstream schools. In addition, our passengers make a contribution toward the cost of their transport. We balance our needs though applying for grant funding both locally and nationally, and by our events. We are in receipt of grant funding through Norfolk County Council Passenger Transport, Norwich City Council, Broadland District Council and South Norfolk District Council.

How we change lives

Our service enables our passengers to connect with their communities, experience an enhanced state of well being and sense relief from the feeling of isolation and depression of spirit. There has been much research already done by august bodies like the British Medical Association and Leonard Cheshire Disability on the importance of social inclusion for a sense of well being.

We also regularly organise our own surveys on passengers experience and wishes. Last year, in keeping with current thinking, we undertook our first Social Impact Report and Social impact Triangle attached. Our recent assessment of the effect the charity has on its new passengers has been complied in a follow up Social Impact Report 2013

Vanderbilt releases SPC 3.8 with a more intuitive interface and added remote maintenance capabilities

Intrusion detection Vanderbilt has released the latest update to SPC, the cloud-based intrusion detection system it inherited after its acquisition of Access Control Technology Ltd last year. The company says that SPC 3.8 more effectively supports dual authorisations and will make installations speedier and more cost-effective. SPC harnesses cloud services, apps and a dedicated software suite to provide comprehensive alarm management functionality.

The pace at which we are developing our systems is unparalleled, and SPC has a strong legacy, incorporating the latest technologies, design, and manufacturing methods to help drive this pace, says John O Donnell, product marketing at Vanderbilt. SPC 3.8 is a hardware and software intrusion system that keeps pace with market-driven features. Ultimately, we are aspiring towards a future single platform migration strategy within our product portfolio, and SPC is at the heart of this. embedded content Dual authorisation Vanderbilt has updated the interface in a bid to make it more intuitive. There are also enhancements to its remote maintenance capabilities. All SPC systems can be remotely updated as opposed to a more time-consuming, expensive physical site visit to the latest SPC firmware. As we continue to innovate this legacy system, the access engine within SPC has been boosted with additional functionality to support dual authorisation, continues John O Donnell. This escort facility ensures greater security measures when using the system. The support system has been complemented with the ability to obtain support information directly from the SPC help page, allowing access to customer and installer documentation.

The cause and effect engine has also been upgraded with a new layout and options to simplify programming. Vanderbilt is a major player in access control, intrusion detection and video management. We recently caught up with the company s CEO, Joe Grillo, who recently came third in our roll call of the top 10 influencers among security manufacturers/service providers 2017, at IFSEC International 2017.

Blue light warning: How the false alarm epidemic continues to resist all remedies

More than 50% of the 600,000 callout incidents attended by fire and rescue services annually (FRS) are false alarms, according to the latest statistics from the Fire Service. The cost of this wasted time for both business and the fire service is estimated to be well in excess of 1 billion per year, in part as a result of downtime from groundless evacuations. In the last five years this position has not appreciably changed.

What s more, false fire alarms from automatic alarm systems due to poor maintenance are on the increase. As to the ratio between real fire emergencies and false alarms, regrettably in England a sustained trend for the past five years shows the number of false alarm call outs actually exceeding real primary fire call outs by a significant margin, which is in itself a damningly cautionary finding. In London this ratio is, exceptionally, two to one (and currently reflecting a slight increase in unwanted calls against target aims). These blue light responses, then, to automated unwanted fire alarm signals (UFAS) represent a grave menace, hindering services that could be needed at a genuine emergency or even interrupting critical front-line training for first responders . Beyond such considerations as this needless burden on the FRS authorities, business disruptions that lead to a loss of productivity, the reduced confidence of the general public, and even the environmental impact of inessential emergency appliance movements all need to be taken into account. Hospitals have been identified as responsible for the vast majority of the false alarms that the capital s firefighters are called out to And this persistent malfunctioning of fire alarms is even more glaringly highlighted when you stop to consider the recent deliberations by the UK government on the creation of multi-agency Strategic Command Centres embracing the blue light emergency services Fire, Ambulance and Police. In the view of some analysts, this new configuration of the services is likely to spark debate about multiple call outs and the cost implications of all three services responding to incidents, when so very often a reported event can be a false alert. Tri-Service Control Centres It s a concern foreseen and amplified by the Chief Fire Officers Association, one of whose chief officers comments: Until an event is attended and confirmed as a false alarm it will always be treated as an emergency and responded to by the appropriate service or services. The National Police Chiefs Council also anticipates an enhanced collaborative response arising from the Tri-Service Control Centres: We welcome any opportunity to enable the blue light services to work more effectively together in the public interest . . .

They can concentrate expertise, save money, help deal with crises and share best practice. So, in short, this proposed drive towards a more joined-up response to emergencies intends to coordinate front-line services to yield more efficiencies in time-savings and management of personnel, with joint decision-making aimed to prioritise blue light call outs concentrated on inter-operable control rooms. Yet the question remains, will these new efficiencies be reciprocated by risk management in a renewed commitment to defeat false alarms in their communities by improving the functional integrity of the Automatic Fire Detection and Fire Alarm Systems (AFDS) on which the public rely? Hospitals Since the London Fire Brigade (LFB) introduced its penalty charging scheme for excessive false fire alarm call outs in January 2014, the potential for the LFB to collect millions in penalties from the worst culprits in the capital has remained a possible outcome (at present, for 2017, the scheme is suspended for review). Hospitals have been identified as responsible for the vast majority of the false alarms that the capital s firefighters are called out to. The LFB s figures from before the scheme s inception show that firefighters were called out, overall, to over 400 locations annually (each more than ten times) in response to false fire alarms, costing the brigade about 800,000. This frequency equates to a false alarm every 15 minutes in London. Overall, false alarms from automatic systems still account for around 40,000 call outs for the LFB every year, set against call outs of around half that number to real fires. The very latest LFB figures for cost recovery for non domestic premises generating 10 or more calls a year, continue to record a potential recovery value on average of approaching 500,000 in charges every 12 months.

Crying Wolf Unwanted Fire Signals that cry wolf in this manner place a vast burden on Fire and Rescue Services by unnecessarily tying up fire engines and firefighters on needless call-outs, when they may be needed at a genuine emergency. Sophisticated predictive technology reduces the problem by resolving potential problems before they arise That is why the pressure on risk management and, more particularly, Responsible Persons to cut the risks of false alarms is intensifying. What s more, by tolerating a norm of frequent needless fire alarm annunciations, negligent premises management can create a dangerous mood of apathy among staff that could very easily lead to widespread irresponsiveness should a real fire break out. Intelligence convergence for remote troubleshooting For responsible risk management, current best practice conditioned by ecological concerns seeks to reduce the impact on the environment that potentially arises from the life cycle of a fire system. Today, fire prevention is an essential element of Building Management Systems (BMSs) integrated with an IT infrastructure purposed to fully exploit Intelligence Convergence, allowing direct integration into intelligent buildings via any device capable of establishing an internet connection, granting risk management instant access to review the system, including the status of fire detection devices in real time. Current solutions encompass smart security systems such as access control/ID systems, video surveillance/analytics, intrusion detection, and life safety . . . all extending the capability for remote diagnostics that confer the ecological benefits of increased efficiency yielded by fault-free systems. For example: servicing, maintenance and false call outs all contribute to increased CO2 levels in the atmosphere leading to changes in global environmental conditions. These hazards can be significantly reduced by the use of sophisticated predictive technology, reducing the need to travel by allowing potential problems to be resolved before they arise.

Predictive technology can include the management of fire and security servicing inspection routines, false fire alarm interrogation and diagnosis, or the scheduling of system maintenance call-outs. At the same time, these examples of Intelligence Convergence can benefit users with the capability to support a full audit trail for traceability and regulatory compliance.

10 practical steps towards combating the false alarms menace As the latest statistics suggest, a number of remedies to stimulate behavioural change can be derived from analysis of common shortcomings at malfunctioning sites: Enhanced maintenance routines are evidently a priority, and certainly they re a key requirement embedded in any regular review a fire risk assessment in compliance with the Fire Safety Order Troubleshooting for predictive maintenance is facilitated by comprehensively monitored configurable Automatic Fire Alarm systems to ensure integrity of alarm device functionality, supported by EN 54-2 approved Analogue Addressable panels. Specification of sensing devices that further reduce susceptibility to false alarms by their embedded intelligence to discriminate between spurious fire events and genuine ones. Multisensors are the considered choice when replacing problem detectors; or the changing of devices from smoke to heat in certain locations when necessary. Specification of high-integrity fire data communications via accessible configurable networks whose performance to minimise false activations is defined by the highest reliability in resistance to outside interference. Constant reviews should be maintained as to change of use within premises because such changes can affect the sensitivity of detectors, requiring appointed fire alarm maintenance personnel to update/upgrade the system. Improved training of responsible risk management. Advise users of fire detection systems that these lifelines are connected to an ARC (Alarm Receiving Centre) and emphasise the gravity of an UFAS (automated unwanted fire alarm signal) resulting in a costly call out, endangering genuine call outs. More rigorous supervision of negligent testing of the system where the routine to take it off-line is persistently disregarded thus triggering a UFAS at the ARC.

Incorrect positioning of sensing/detecting devices contrary to specification s installation data. Unregulated misuse of premises: toasters, cigarette smoking, steam from kettle in office, even aerosol sprays (used by cleaning staff) near smoke detectors can cause false alarms. Arising from recommendations that both BS 5839-1:2013 and BS 9999:2017 lay emphasis on, accurate up-to-date Zone Plans for rapid orientation for building occupants and the emergency services alike are cited as key aids. Such plans should be adjacent to the control & indicating equipment and, as may be imagined, their prominent depiction of fire alarm zones that accurately match the physical layout within the building hasten the identification of the location of alarms in an emergency, whether real or false.
