According to IHS Market, it is estimated that there are over 60 million security cameras in the United States, and other reports say these cameras capture more than four billion hours of footage per week. Over the last decade, IP camera technology has dominated the conversation as it has provided users with a broad offering of enhanced image quality and features. With a large percentage of existing security systems relying on analogue, many end users looking for high definition (HD) video quality have been forced to take on a complete system overhaul. Infrastructure overhaul for HD video To make the switch, customers would need to change everything, from cameras to hardware to wiring– not to mention the lengthy installation process that would ensue. IP cameras also require higher Internet speeds and more cloud space. Whether constrained by budget, bandwidth or storage, many end users have been unable to adopt this new video surveillance method.Thanks to technological advancements within the security industry, HD over Coax offers a viable solution for integrators and end users alike Thanks to technological advancements within the security industry, HD over Coax offers a viable solution for integrators and end users alike. By utilising the current Coaxial cables, this offering yields high definition video, while requiring minimal infrastructure changes and is an optimal surveillance choice for security customers. Plus, with new advancements and updates being made frequently to this technology, there is a solution for every security need. The enhanced alternative of HD over Coax has been warmly welcomed in the security industry, thanks to its simple solutions and ever-evolving features. Many new analogue HD cameras are “plug and play,” able to connect directly to existing Coaxial cables. This eliminates the need for a complete system change, creating cost-savings for the end user and an enhanced video quality offering. Easy solutions for HD video As a result, integrators can cost-effectively upgrade their customer’s surveillance solution while using their legacy infrastructure, making it an attractive option for end users and an easy sell for dealers. Latency in video is another common issue with network-based camera systems, where even the slightest delay in video surveillance can hinder security response HD over Coax cameras themselves are always expanding and evolving to meet a wide array of security needs. With the introduction of fisheye and multi-sensor cameras, users now have a multitude of coverage options, not to mention the introduction of 4K bringing resolution options to the same level as IP. Some newer technologies are even touting 4K cameras paired with 4K digital video recorders (DVRs) made specifically for analogue systems. Longer cables grant transmission for up to 1600 feet, double the distance of standard analogue solutions, and triple that of IP systems. This single cable is able to transmit both HD video and audio. Recently, broadcast quality audio over Coax has become available in limited models, a substantial improvement over older analogue technology, which was unable to transmit audio. Stopping video delay Latency in video is another common issue with network-based camera systems. Even the slightest delay in video surveillance can hinder security response. IP cameras are forced to compress and packetise their video for transmission. The outcome of this is a reduced number of images per video, which in turn causes delay. HD over Coax on the other hand, delivers an unlimited amount of HD images in real time, with smooth motion and impressive clarity. Additionally, the point-to-point transmission delivers uncompressed video free of lag. Another touted benefit is that, unlike IP networked cameras, analogue systems provide a more secure video transmission. With so much sensitive information housed on a businesses’ network, adding another point of network access through an IP camera can create concerns for cyber security risks. HD over Coax delivers an unlimited amount of HD images in real time, with smooth motion and impressive clarity Preventing network hacking With HD over Coax, the physical connections between the camera and DVR prevent network hacking. By keeping the video surveillance system offline, security professionals are able to direct their attention to the physical threats at hand, rather than having to focus on deterring cyber security risks. One of the primary difficulties of deploying HD video solutions is the fact that many older systems utilise a wide variety of HD standards and platforms. To make matters more complicated, after HD over Coax was brought to market, manufacturers raced to create their own version of this technology. Today, the most popular proprietary standards are HD-CVI, HD-TVI and AHD. However, integrators and customers found that attempting to manage multiple HD technologies proved to be near impossible.Integrators and customers found that attempting to manage multiple HD technologies proved to be near impossible Diversifying surveillance through one DVR To combat these issues, manufacturers have introduced products with more flexibility to their portfolios. One example of this is the penta-brid DVR which grants the ability to seamlessly integrate multiple technologies deployed across one application. This means that systems with diverse camera brands and technologies, such as a mix of HD-CVI, HD-TVI, AHD, analogue or IP, can be connected through one DVR. For many end users with legacy analogue systems, penta-brid DVRs give them greater freedom to choose between a variety of solutions, rather than being limited to one option. With video resolution increasing, the space needed to store the footage is similarly rising. Penta-brid technology has been able to adapt to these evolving needs, giving users ample storage space to house the HD and 4K surveillance video with some of the newest models including H.265 compression. HD casino surveillance made simple For casinos, HD images are critical for identifying unauthorised personnel and unlawful behaviours to create a safe environment for guests and staff While HD over Coax is beneficial to many end users and integrators, those in the casino and hospitality markets find it crucial. With a combination of high profile guests, large amounts of cash on hand, constant crowds and strict industry regulations, reliable video surveillance is a must. Deploying new IP systems comes at a stiff price. When looking to upgrade their video surveillance, casinos must also be mindful of the installation process. When moving to an IP-based system, ripping out old wires and replacing them with new is the standard practice. This practice can be both disruptive and costly, not to mention gaming regulations require casino activities be monitored at all times so a complete system shutdown would result in revenue loss. This cost can be hard to justify, especially when the current legacy analogue system remains in working condition with only the lower image resolution to date it. For these scenarios, the most cost-effective option is to leverage the legacy infrastructure, replace the existing cameras with new devices, and reap the benefits that HD video has to offer without any lapse in security. For casinos, HD images are critical for identifying unauthorised personnel and unlawful behaviours to create a safe environment for guests and staff. HD over Coax cameras now offer the same resolution as IP cameras with a plug and play approach, that cuts down on expense without sacrificing quality. For businesses and applications that are unable to adopt IP technology, whether it be cost or time prohibitive, HD over Coax now features most of the same benefits IP has to offer without breaking the bank. By providing clear images in real time, maximising existing infrastructure, and affording cyber security benefits, HD over Coax provides an attractive solution for many end users and integrators.
Today ‘terrorism’ has become a word we use and hear every day. The goal of terrorism is a media product - information delivered to nearly every house in the world. So, the weapon of terrorism is information. Therefore, the way we defend and prevent terrorism must also be based on intelligent processing of information - and an early awareness of potential threats and effective preventive action may eliminate most attacks. Video analytics, automated surveillance and AI decision-making are going to change the rules of the struggle between civilians and terrorists by making attempted attacks predictable, senseless and silent. In this article, we will evaluate to what extent technology can investigate and prevent terror crimes considering the latest technology innovations. Civilian feedback helps terrorists to accomplish mission In order to achieve their main goal - loud media response - terrorists and those who order the attacks use unpredictable tactics and the element of surprise; so that after every attack, the media discusses for months the circumstances and their insanity. Unfortunately, each time it happens our society seems to be unprepared. As the media environment grows, terror attacks attract more attention, and the feedback of civilians actually helps the terrorists to accomplish their mission. Features of terrorist crimes Counter-terrorist specialists highlight, among the others, the following inherent symptoms of terror crimes: Unpredictability Public visibility Enormous social resonance The question is: Are there technological solutions that could treat these symptoms at a low level? Crime investigations are based on objective indisputable facts that can be used against suspects in a court. The facts are: Video surveillance materials Facial recognition and ANPR metadata Audio data (e.g. phone calls) Internet communication logs Other registered human actions Metadata sources and analytical systems To be able to collect and analyse that data, it needs to be in a data format that an analytical system will be able to process. Metadata can be generated by processing data of the above sources. Metadata can be stored in relational databases or in blockchain, so it can be a reference for an analytical system or law enforcement structures. Automatic or semi-automatic investigation can be based on crime scenarios, behaviour patterns, forensic search, face and vehicle recognition and synoptical search Aggregation of metadata sources could be constructive because it would significantly increase metadata availability for analytical systems and will improve metadata quality. This would surely require replacement of most of existing security systems and standardisation of new systems so to ensure maximal compatibility of metadata sources and analytical systems. Offline video analytics As these improvements are difficult to develop and implement globally, replacement solutions are being offered currently in the security market. One of them is the concept of offline video analytics, which generates and analyses metadata from any video source. Video sources may vary from ‘old school’ analogue cameras to high-resolution IP cameras recorded in any digital format. Quality of the metadata generated from offline analytical systems is almost unaffected. High quality metadata can be analysed and investigated automatically or semi-automatically for violations, crimes and terror activity. Automatic or semi-automatic investigation can be based on crime scenarios, behaviour patterns, forensic search, face and vehicle recognition and synoptical search. Fast and effective investigation of terror activities may prevent attacks and also can reduce the number of active terrorists. Human head microvibration is linked with the vestibular-emotional reflex (VER) and depends on emotional status Deep learning and neural network technologies However, realtime crime and terror prevention requires instant metadata generation and analysis. The investigation instruments mentioned above would not be of the same efficiency. Firstly, processing capabilities of analytical system must be very high because the system should be able to record data, generate metadata and analyse it at the same time in realtime conditions. Currently the most powerful server processors can run only tens of detectors so it becomes very costly. That is why these kinds of solutions are only used in critical infrastructure. However, if they were used widely they would dramatically reduce the number of criminal and terror activities. Deep learning and neural network technologies (so-called artificial intelligence - AI) are coming to the security market to replace classic video analytics. These systems are not yet much more efficient hardware-wise; however, they have greater potential and they are cheaper. Behaviour patterns, actions, sounds, speech, faces, car number plates and many other metadata types can be identified and collected and analysed by AI in realtime. Security surveillance and analytical AI systems could know about each person’s life and social background so it could make automatic decisions Emotion recognition/vibraimage technology Emotion recognition (or vibraimage) technology measures micromovements (vibration) of a person by processing video from a camera or any video source. Human head microvibration is linked with the vestibular-emotional reflex (VER) and depends on emotional status. Vibraimage systems detect human emotions by the control of 3D head-neck movements accumulated in several frames of video processing. Vibraimage is a system that detects all human emotions. Blockchain can bring awareness of different views. Imagine if the security surveillance and analytical AI system knew about each person’s life and social background so it could make automatic decisions to give more surveillance priority to those who potentially could take negative action. Although security equipment is becoming more affordable, the budgeting of security systems at a government and private level is still the biggest problem. As the global population is growing and migration is getting more intense, public and private security is becoming a natural need. Meanwhile, the security market is ready to deliver solutions that can instantly investigate and even prevent terror activities.
Everybody has been hooked on the discussions about Analogue HD or IP systems, but shouldn’t we really be thinking about WiFi and 5G connectivity, removing the need for expensive cabling? Are wireless networks secure enough? What is the potential range? Even the basic question about whether or not the network is capable of transferring the huge (and growing) amount of data required for High Res Video, which will soon be quadrupled with the advent of 4K and higher resolutions. The future of video surveillance monitors We have seen a massive uptake in 4K monitors in the security industry. While they have been relatively common in the consumer market, they are only now beginning to really take off in the CCTV market, and the advances in Analogue HD and IP technology mean that 4K is no longer the limited application technology it was just a few years ago. Relatively easy and inexpensive access to huge amounts of storage space, either on physical storage servers or in the cloud, both of which have their own positives and negatives, have really helped with the adoption of 4K. Having said that the consensus seems to be, at least where displays are concerned, there is very little need for any higher resolution. So, where next for monitors in CCTV? 8K monitors are present, but are currently prohibitively expensive, and content is in short supply (although the Japanese want to broadcast the Tokyo Olympics in 8K in 2020). Do we really need 8K and higher displays in the security industry? In my own opinion, not for anything smaller than 100-150+ inches, as the pictures displayed on a 4K resolution monitor are photo realistic without pixilation on anything I’ve seen in that range of sizes. The consensus seems to be, at least where displays are concerned, there is very little need for any higher resolution Yes, users many want ultra-high resolution video recording in order to capture every minute detail, but I feel there is absolutely no practical application for anything more than 4K displays below around 120”, just as I feel there is no practical application for 4K resolution below 24”. The higher resolution camera images can be zoomed in and viewed perfectly well on FHD and 4K monitors. That means there has to be development in other areas. Developments in WiFi and 5G What we have started to see entering the market are Analogue HD and IP RJ45 native input monitors. Whilst you would be forgiven for thinking they are very similar, there are in fact some huge differences. The IP monitors are essentially like All-In-One Android based computers, capable of running various versions of popular VMS software and some with the option to save to onboard memory or external drives and memory cards. These are becoming very popular with new smaller (8-16 camera) IP installs as they basically remove the need for an NVR or dedicated storage server. Developments in the area of WiFi and 5G connectivity are showing great promise of being capable of transferring the amount of data generated meaning the next step in this market would maybe be to incorporate wireless connectivity in the IP monitor and camera setup. This brings its own issues with data security and network reliability, but for small retail or commercial systems where the data isn’t sensitive it represents a very viable option, doing away with both expensive installation of cabling and the need for an NVR. Larger systems would in all likelihood be unable to cope with the sheer amount of data required to be transmitted over the network, and the limited range of current wireless technologies would be incompatible with the scale of such installs, so hard wiring will still be the best option for these for the foreseeable future. There will be a decline in the physical display market as more development goes into Augmented and Virtual Reality Analogue HD options Analogue HD options have come a long way in a quite short time, with the latest developments able to support over 4MP (2K resolution), and 4K almost here. This has meant that for older legacy installations the systems can be upgraded with newer AHD/TVI/CVI cameras and monitors while using existing cabling. The main benefit of the monitors with native AHD/TVI/CVI loopthrough connections is their ability to work as a spot monitor a long distance from the DVR/NVR. While co-axial systems seem to be gradually reducing in number there will still be older systems in place that want to take advantage of the benefits of co-axial technology, including network security and transmission range. Analogue technologies will eventually become obsolete, but there is still much to recommend them for the next few years. Analogue technologies will eventually become obsolete, but there is still much to recommend them for the next few years Another more niche development is the D2IP monitor, which instead of having IP input has HDMI input and IP output, sending all activity on the screen to the NVR. This is mainly a defence against corporate espionage, fraud and other sensitive actions. While this has limited application those who do need it find it a very useful technology, but it’s very unlikely to become mainstream in the near future. Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality Does the monitor industry as a whole have a future? In the longer term (decades rather than years) there will definitely be a decline in the physical display market as more and more development goes into AR (Augmented Reality or Mixed Reality depending on who’s definition you want to take) and VR (Virtual Reality). Currently AR is limited to devices such as smartphones (think Pokémon Go) and eyewear, such as the ill-fated Google Glass, but in the future, I think we’ll all have optical implants (who doesn’t want to be The Terminator or RoboCop?), allowing us to see whatever we decide we want to as an overlay on the world around us, like a high-tech HUD (Heads Up Display). VR on the other hand is fully immersive, and for playback or monitoring of camera feeds would provide a great solution, but lacks the ability to be truly useful in the outside world the way that AR could be. Something not directly related to the monitor industry, but which has a huge effect on the entire security industry is also the one thing I feel a lot of us have been oblivious to is the introduction of quantum computers, which we really need to get our heads around in the medium to long term. Most current encryption technology will be rendered useless overnight when quantum computers become more widespread. So, where does that leave us? Who will be the most vulnerable? What can we do now to mitigate the potential upheaval? All I can say for sure is that smarter people than me need to be working on that, alongside the development of the quantum computer itself. Newer methods of encryption are going to be needed to deal with the massive jump in processing power that comes with quantum. I’m not saying it will happen this year, but it is definitely on the way and something to be planned for.
The IoT is not only integrating devices and services, it is also bringing businesses together – particularly in the safety, security and fire sectors. This fact was demonstrated at the latest edition of Secutech Vietnam, where a record 380 exhibitors and 14,239 trade visitors converged to do business and learn about the latest products. Brands from 21 countries and regions lined up at the show, with many commenting that the market for smart solutions is becoming increasingly competitive. With a population of almost 100 million and construction projects taking place across the country, exhibitors were pleased to find opportunities not just in Ho Chi Minh City and the south of Vietnam, but across the entire country. Secutech Vietnam 2019 At the conclusion of the show, Ms Regina Tsai, the Deputy General Manager of Messe Frankfurt New Era Business Media Ltd said: “This 12th edition of Secutech Vietnam has delivered concrete business results. Apart from serving the smart city sector, the concurrent Fire & Safety Vietnam and SMABuilding events have helped industry players to collaborate, solve pain points, and take advantage of growth potential in the factory, residential and commercial property sectors. Through its concurrent events and fringe programme, we are proud that Secutech Vietnam continues to orient the regions’ safety, security and fire sectors towards a bright future.” Taking place at the Saigon Exhibition and Convention Centre from 14 – 16 August 2019, the mood inside the exhibition hall was positive as exhibitors displayed their latest IoT, surveillance, fire safety, access control, cloud computing, and artificial intelligence technologies to trade buyers from across Vietnam. IoT, video, access control Aiming to find more partners in Vietnam, and so far we have met a lot of project owners and system integrators at the fair" Because of the increasingly competitive business environment, many brands decided to boost their presence at the fair by exhibiting at a dedicated booth, having previously been represented at Secutech Vietnam through local distributors. “The market is growing so fast that we need a platform to meet the right customers,” said Mr Charly Wang, the Regional Sales Director of Merit LILIN, a supplier of IP surveillance and video analysis solutions. He continued, “We are aiming to find more partners in Vietnam, and so far we have met a lot of project owners and system integrators at the fair.” Global security companies exhibit Apart from LILIN, other well-known brands in attendance included Avigilon, Bosch, Hanwha Techwin, Hitron, Kedacom, Nha An Toan (a Hikvision and ABB distributor), and ZKTeco. Organised by the Shenzhen Circular Economy Association and the Shenzhen Municipal Commerce Bureau, the Shenzhen Pavilion was one of four international pavilions at the trade fair. Hosting 20 leading suppliers including ANJIA, DOPHIGO, Feyond, GoldenVision, Harvest Kang and Jeas-Union, the pavilion showcased the latest solutions in smart building, smart home and transportation. The show’s international contingent also included nearly 40 companies in pavilions from Singapore, the Korea Fire Institute, and the Japan Fire Pavilion. Smart city and retail Aiming to meet trade visitors from across Vietnam, Hanwha Techwin were introducing their surveillance and service centre solutions for smart city, smart factory, and retail at the show. Mr Ta Quang Huy, the Country Manager of the company said, “We have exhibited at the show for four consecutive years because of the wide variety of visitors that come here, not only from Ho Chi Minh City, but also from major cities such as Danang, Hanoi, and Central Vietnam. Compared to last year, the visitor flow has increased, and clients seem to be focusing a lot on smart city.” At the fair’s concurrent SMABuilding event, exhibitors also painted a favourable picture of market prospects: “According to reports that we have read, the smart building market in Vietnam is expected to grow by 20 to 30 percent until 2030,” said Ms Bui Thi Huong Lan, the CEO Assistant at TechPro. “Our main objective at the fair is to promote our new biometric security solutions to the market. We are really satisfied with the results. In just one day we have received more than 100 potential clients at our booth that are relevant to the smart building and home markets, including contractors.” Fire safety solutions We manufacture a wide range of firefighting equipment, including specialised vehicles and ambulances" With a record-breaking scale of display, up 21% from 2018, visitors to the concurrent Fire & Safety Vietnam event were able to locate extinguishing systems, alarms, valves, personal protection equipment, CPR solutions, and fire dust detection systems from well-known brands such as D&C Vina, Funayama, Himax, Masflo, Nittan, Secom, SFFECO, Yun Yang, VT Plus, Quoc Nam and many more. According to an exhibitor at the event, Mr Radwan Halabi, the Export Director of NAFFCO, new construction projects have opened up a gap in the market for internationally certified products, “We manufacture a wide range of firefighting equipment, including specialised vehicles and ambulances. In the Vietnamese market, new projects are looking for internationally certified products, especially high-rise buildings and shopping malls. The results of our participation at Secutech Vietnam have been really good. The visitors here are very unique, and we have not met any visitors that are unrelated to our products.” New trends and technology With so many internationally renowned brands exhibiting at the fair, Secutech Vietnam 2019 proved itself to be the ideal destination for trade buyers to identify new trends and find appropriate products for their businesses. New at the show this year, the business matching service hosted more than 530 tours and meetings with more than 85% expressing their satisfaction with the service as an efficient way to target solutions of interest and establish new business connections. CCTV and AI “I have been visiting the show for eight years, and I can see that there are more brands joining each year. Almost all the key brands in the industry are present,” said Mr Dao Anh Dung, the Sales Manager of Sao Nam An. “So far, I have noticed that there are more CCTV solutions which are highly flexible and can be adjusted to customer needs. The AI technology is becoming more mature too.” Other visitors noted that there is increased interconnectivity between devices. Mr Nguyen Van Huynh, a Product Designer from Cty TNHH PCCC Sao Viet, said “We are a fire alarm system developer for commercial and residential uses. We are working on a new system and I am one of the technicians in the team. I am here to learn about market and industry trends so that we can adjust our products to fit market needs. I have noticed that there is increasing adoption of IoT and connective technologies to integrate systems. This is something that we are also working on.” Networking and sourcing Networking and sourcing opportunities apart, the trade fair offers an information exchange platform In addition to networking and sourcing opportunities, the trade fair also provided an information exchange platform that helped sector players learn about important growth areas. One of many sectors primed for future growth is smart factory, however the sector is still in a nascent stage. “At the moment there are not a lot smart factories in Vietnam but many manufacturers are expressing serious intentions to set up smart factories,” said Mr Long Nguyen, the CEO of Houselink and a speaker at the Smart Factory Conference. “A lot of the topics that we discussed at the conference are very practical for these manufacturers, and some attendees asked for further information after my presentation. Attendees can also find related products in the fairground, so bringing this conference to the show is really useful for the local industry.” Fire protection solutions Some of the key themes of the conference ranged from market updates, government policy, security, management efficiency, IoT applications, and fire safety. For fire safety professionals, there were plenty of industry insights on offer at a seminar dedicated to fire protection solutions. Speakers included representatives from the Vietnam Fire and Rescue Police Department and the Korea Fire Institute, who discussed regulations, UL certification, fire prevention in mixed-use buildings, intelligent alarm systems and more. Secutech Vietnam is jointly organised by Messe Frankfurt New Era Business Media Ltd and Vietnam Advertisement and Fair Exhibition JSC. The next edition will take place from 20 – 22 August 2020 at SECC, Ho Chi Minh City.
With security threats on the rise, LILIN Americas is answering the call by introducing an advanced yet easy-to-install Access Control System for monitoring entry to a building, resulting in a safer environment for personnel and assets. When integrated with other platforms such as IP cameras, fire alarms, and sensors, the system provides a layered security approach that significantly enhances peace-of-mind and acts as a deterrent for theft and vandalism. "The LILIN Access Control System is a single, streamlined and secure solution that can be controlled remotely and customised to individual requirements, from the simple to the most challenging," said Joe Cook, Vice President and General Manager of LILIN Americas. It tracks when employees enter and exit a building, creating an audit trail of data that can be analysed for actionable insights" "Besides keeping intruders out, it tracks when employees enter and exit a building, creating an audit trail of data that can be analysed for actionable insights. It also empowers administrators to restrict the locations each employee can enter, so they can set levels of security that balance safety and convenience." Reduces installation time Designed to work seamlessly together, the building blocks of the LILIN Access Control System are: TCP/IP Single Door RFID Card Reader and PIN Controller (AR2015) PoE Relay Box (ARR2010E) TCP/IP Multi- and Single-door Control Panels (AC1082, ACW10120) AC/DC Power Supply (PMH-PSU330) LILIN Access Control Software Various combinations of the hardware platform are installed depending on the three available configurations – Standalone mode, Standalone with PoE mode, or Mixed mode. By using only what hardware they need, LILIN customers can significantly reduce installation time and total cost of ownership, while achieving operational efficiencies and gaining greater visibility into their security environment. Gateway to unified access control Standalone and Standalone with PoE modes are targeted primarily at small commercial and select residential applications, while Mixed mode is recommended for enterprise-level deployments with Wiegand readers and integrates with LILIN's advanced Navigator series recording solutions. The software's multi-level mapping feature lets users monitor up to three live cameras at each intrusion area The web-based Access Control software provides a gateway to unified access control, enabling administrators to manage all of their security devices on a single interface. For example, the software's multi-level mapping feature lets users monitor up to three live cameras at each intrusion area, while logging the event in real time. If an alarm event occurs, the administrator is sent an e-mail notification and the software brings up live video on the screen for viewing. Capacity to store 20,000 card holders LILIN Access Control Software enables logged events to be fully searchable for later analysis, a process that is made easier by the software's ability to display individual logs with a snapshot of the person involved and employee information, if available, along with recorded surveillance video. Tampering with a card reader, forcing open a door, insufficient permissions, or propping open a door for an extended period of time are all events that would set off an alarm. Scalability of an access control system allows it to handle growing security concerns, whether it is hiring more employees or building an addition to a home. The LILIN system has the capacity to store up to 20,000 card holders and 65,500 events with support for a maximum of 1000 doors with three cameras per door. It also features high assurance Anti-Passback protection to prevent cardholders from double entering or exiting a door with a single card, along with a duress code to input for opening a door and sending an alarm.
Ho Chi Minh City takes its place at the centre of Asia’s security world this week, as a record 380 exhibitors aim to catch the attention of trade buyers at the 12th edition of Secutech Vietnam. Displaying best-in-class products in the fields of safety, security and fire, the trade fair takes place at the Saigon Convention and Exhibition Centre from 14 – 16 August 2019. According to Ms Regina Tsai, the Deputy General Manager of Messe Frankfurt New Era Business Media Ltd, the fair has adapted to accommodate emerging vertical markets: “Thanks to the traction of Industry 4.0, a new wave of IoT adoption is taking place in Vietnam. With this in mind, we have introduced the ‘Smart Factory Conference’ to the fair’s fringe programme. This adds to what is already an exciting exchange platform for the smart city and smart building markets.” 11% rise in number of exhibitors As the market for security products in Vietnam has matured, exhibitor participation has risen for six consecutive yearsBy further easing the process of doing business in Vietnam, the fair continues to gather support from both industry associations and new exhibitors. In fact, as the market for security products in Vietnam has matured, exhibitor participation has risen for six consecutive years. In celebration of the fair’s expansion, Ms Tsai added: “This year we are delighted to be recording an 11% rise in exhibitor numbers. Last year, the fair attracted 13,800 trade visitors, and at the coming edition we are anticipating yet another strong turnout from system integrators, distributors, consultants and related trade buyers.” Solution providers from 21 countries and regions will showcase their products across 11,000 sqm of exhibition space at the fair, including the likes of Avigilon, Bosch, Hanwha Techwin, Hitron, KPS, LILIN, PHUC BINH, Nha An Toan (a distributor of Hikvision and ABB products), and ZKTeco. Demand for energy efficient solutions In the smart building sector, demand for connected IoT products can be broken down into four main categories: smart homes, smart apartment buildings, smart commercial buildings and smart factories. Security applications are a key demand, but buyers also seek solutions for energy savings and management efficiency. With this in mind, Secutech Vietnam’s concurrent SMABuilding Vietnam event provides a sourcing hub for related products such as building management platforms and energy-saving systems, as well as access control systems, biometrics, IP surveillance solutions and intercoms. Connecting with suppliers of smart building The Pavilion will provide destination for buyers to connect with suppliers of smart building and security technologyOne of numerous highlights of the event is the Singapore Pavilion. As a leader in cloud services and IoT technology, Singapore is home to some of the world’s premier digital solution providers. The Pavilion will provide a one-stop destination for buyers to connect with suppliers of smart building and security technology, including ASME, Force 21, Kedacom, Multron, Servo Dynamic, Ubergard, and Worldtags. Another cluster of international brands is the Shenzhen Pavilion. Organised by the Shenzhen Circular Economy Association and the Shenzhen Municipal Commerce Bureau, the pavilion gathers more than 20 leading suppliers to showcase up-to-date solutions not only for smart building and smart home, but also transportation. In addition to excellent product variety, trade visitors will be able to gather relevant industry information at the fair. In fact, a series of conferences and seminars ensure that visitors will leave with up-to-date market intelligence in the areas of smart factories and fire & safety. Implementing appropriate fire systems The sector draws demand from a variety of different verticals, including high rise buildings, factories and industrial parksIn collaboration with Houselink JSC, the new Smart Factory Conference has been introduced to meet the needs of contractors, consultants, investors, end users and other related stakeholders from Vietnam’s expanding smart factory sector. Shining a spotlight on Industry 4.0, topics will include security solutions for industrial zones, factory automation management as well as the implementation of appropriate fire systems for industrial premises. Bringing the full fraternity of regional fire safety stakeholders together is the concurrent ‘Fire Safety and Rescue Vietnam’ event. International exhibitors will be trying to capitalise on the high demand in the Vietnamese fire safety sector, as rising awareness has raised demand for higher standard equipment.
