PAC & GDX, providers of access control and door entry solutions, are showcasing the range and depth of their innovative technology on Stand IF2930 at IFSEC International 2019. From a single door installation to a fully integrated network based system, the company’s extensive portfolio provides unbeatable reliability and robust functionality, at a price point that enables installation in a diverse range of residential and commercial buildings. In order to provide integrators and end users with the highest level of flexibility and ease of operation, PAC & GDX have joined forces with STid, the principal manufacturer of instinctive, contactless security technologies. NFC based readers By incorporating STid’s Bluetooth and NFC based readers with PAC or GDX controllers, a mobile phone can be used to gain access. To enjoy all the benefits of a handsfree option, all an individual has to do is tap their phone twice and the Bluetooth signal is sent to the reader to unlock a door. By downloading the STid app a virtual credential can be configured in a smartphone wallet By downloading the STid app a virtual credential can be configured in a smartphone wallet, allowing the user to have multiple virtual ‘keys’ for different areas or sites. The system can also be configured to use proximity based near field communication (NFC) instead of Bluetooth, or a combination of the two. Furthermore, it is available with a PAC or PAC 64 output and, when using a PAC 512 or PAC 212 access controller, two readers can be connected to provide true read in/out from a single channel. Access control systems Also on display is the PAC Residential Cloud solution, which leads the way in allowing organisations to remotely manage and monitor their access control systems in a secure, modern and cloud based environment. Users can address technical issues, deal with key fob management, view status, set and unset a system, and gain access to an event log more easily than ever before – all from a remote location. Various site communication options are available including PSTN, GSM and GPRS and it can be configured and managed via a smartphone, tablet or PC. At IFSEC PAC is demonstrating how Residential Cloud can be integrated with 3xLOGIC cameras to provide a fully hosted solution, which is perfect for the residential sector. This system allows designated personnel to be notified if, for example, a door is forced or left open. Network switches By sending an alarm to the camera, it starts to record and transmits images to a mobile device via a push notification. This allows the system to provide vital information that elicits a fast response and immediate action. With an optional camera, a backlight LED to provide clear visitor images in low light levels Sharing the limelight with STid and Residential Cloud is GDX7 – a next generation IP based door entry system that offers integrated access control for up to 1,000 keyholders using a standard two-core cable. With an optional camera, a backlight LED to provide clear visitor images in low light levels, and an inbuilt reader, GDX7 has an incredibly high level of functionality and enables integrators to install an IP system without being skilled in IT or familiar with network switches. Identification devices The GDX7 door entry panel can be provided with multiple button options, including those that meet the requirements of the Equality Act, and its readers and identification devices have also been approved by Secured by Design – a police service initiative that aims to improve the security of buildings. Already a huge success, GDX7 has a new seven-inch apartment station and a new landing card, which enables it to provide up to 96 handset connections. It too has recently been augmented with STid integration providing property owners, engineers or contractors with a flexible way of gaining access to remote properties. “PAC & GDX are driven by constant innovation and the desire to push the boundaries of what’s possible with access control,” commented David Hughes, the company’s global product manager. “We also pride ourselves on our customer service and technical support, which includes the provision of a new online training platform that offers a great way to get the most out our products.”

The detection sensor is the cornerstone of any perimeter intruder system, with active infrared beams widely regarded as the pinnacle; balancing precise, dependable, long-range protection with unrivalled reliability and catch performance in all outdoor environments. Using IFSEC as the launchpad for a new beam sensor technology, TAKEX will be introducing the all-new PR-30BE Using IFSEC as the launchpad for a new beam sensor technology, TAKEX will be introducing the all-new PR-30BE; a 30-metre reflective beam sensor with Time of Flight monitoring. The PR-30BE uses Time of Flight technology to determine detecting distance with unprecedented accuracy by measuring both light reception level and timing, meaning no lost alarms from highly reflective objects such as white vehicles. PR-30BE reflective beam sensor The PR-30BE can be used where conventional beams that require power at both ends are impractical due to either installation cost or environmental concerns, such as across waterways, roads, and runways; providing the performance of a traditional point-to-point beam sensor with the single-ended convenience of a PIR detector. Sized like a twin beam but with several features carried over from the PB-IN and PXB flagship quad series, the PR-30BE includes environmental monitoring which dynamically optimises performance to match changing conditions with a dedicated output giving a pre-alarm warning if required. Also included is the popular audible alignment tone function which together with the dual-ring viewfinder and monitor output voltage options, ensure easy beam alignment. Response time adjustment The PR-30BE also includes response time adjustment, +/-90 degrees horizontal and +/-5 degrees vertical adjustment, and a newly redesigned reflector assembly for a minimum operational distance of just 0.5m. Attendees of IFSEC International 2019 will have the opportunity to see the PR-30BE first-hand. Visit TAKEX on stand IF2602, 18-20 June at ExCel London. Additional details including pricing will be announced in local markets at the time of availability.

Built-in messaging allows for instantaneous sharing of information between operators and personnel in the field. This extends to sharing live or recorded video clips, text messages and other security information.
IFSEC Global, like any large trade show, can be daunting for attendees. At big shows, there can be hundreds of physical security manufacturers and dealers vying for your attention. As the scope of physical security expands from video surveillance and access control to include smart building integrations, cybersecurity and the Internet of Things (IoT), there is an increasing amount of information to take in from education sessions and panels. With IFSEC Global approaching next week, we present eight hints and tips for visitors to make the most out of trade shows: 1. Outline your objectives As the famous saying goes, “Failing to plan is planning to fail!” Once you know your objectives, you can start to research who is exhibiting Before you plan anything else, ensure you know what you need to achieve at the show. By clearly noting your objectives, you will be able to divide your time at the show appropriately, and carefully choose who you speak to. If there is a particular project your organisation is working on, search out the products and solutions that address your security challenges. If you are a security professional aiming to keep up with the latest trends and technologies, then networking sessions and seminars may be more appropriate. 2. Bring a standard list of questions Prepare a list of specific questions that will tell you if a product, solution or potential partner will help you meet your objectives. By asking the same questions to each exhibitor you speak to, you will be able to take notes and compare their offerings side by side at the end of the day. This also means you won’t get bogged down in details that are irrelevant to your goals. 3. Do your homework Once you know your objectives, you can start to research who is exhibiting and decide who you want to talk to. Lists of exhibitors can be daunting, and don’t always show you which manufacturers meet your needs. Luckily, most trade show websites provide the option to filter exhibitors by their product category. Once you know your objectives, you can start to research who is exhibiting and it may be easier to download the floor plan to your phone/tablet Many exhibitions also offer a downloadable floor plan, grouping exhibitors by product category or by relevant vertical market. It may be easier to download the floor plan to your phone/tablet or even print it out, if you don’t want to carry around a weighty map or show-guide. 4. Make a schedule Once you have shortlisted the companies you need to see, you can make a schedule that reflects your priorities. Even if you are not booking fixed meetings, a schedule will allow you to effectively manage your time, ensuring you make time for the exhibitors you can’t afford to miss. When scheduling fixed meetings, keep the floor plan at hand If the trade show spans several days, aim to have your most important conversations early on day one. By the time the last afternoon of the show comes around, many companies are already packing up their booth and preparing to head home. When scheduling fixed meetings, keep the floor plan at hand to avoid booking consecutive meetings at opposite ends of the venue. This will ensure you can walk calmly between stands and don’t arrive at an important meeting feeling flustered! 5. Make time for learning If you’re on a mission to expand your knowledge in a given area, check the event guide beforehand to note any education sessions you may want to attend. Look for panels and seminars which address the specific needs of your project, or which will contribute to your professional growth. This is one of the best opportunities you will have to learn from industry leaders in the field. Be sure to plan your attendance in advance so you can schedule the rest of your day accordingly. Check the event guide beforehand to note any education sessions you may want to attend and be sure to plan your attendance in advance 6. Keep a record Armed with your objectives and list of questions, you will want to make a note of exhibitors’ responses to help you come to an informed decision. If you’re relying on an electronic device such as a smartphone or tablet to take notes, you may like to consider bringing a back-up notepad and pen, so you can continue to take notes if your battery fails. Your record does not have to be confined to written bullet points. Photos and videos are great tools remind you what you saw at the show, and they may pick up details that you weren’t able to describe in your notes. Most mobile devices can take photos – and images don’t need to be high quality if they’re just to refresh your memory. 7. Network – but don’t let small talk rule the day It may seem obvious, but don’t forget to exchange business cards with everyone you speak to It may be tempting to take advantage of this time away from the office to talk about anything but business! While small talk can be helpful for building strong professional relationships, remember to keep your list of questions at hand so you can always bring conversations back to your key objectives. Keeping these goals in mind will also help you avoid being swayed by any unhelpful marketing-speak. It may seem obvious, but don’t forget to exchange business cards with everyone you speak to, or even take the opportunity to connect via LinkedIn. Even if something doesn’t seem relevant now, these contacts may be useful in future. Have a dedicated section in your bag or briefcase for business cards to avoid rummaging around. 8. Schedule time for wandering With your most important conversations planned carefully, there should be time left to explore the show more freely. Allowing dedicated time to wander will give you a welcome break from more pressing conversations, and may throw up a welcome surprise in the form of a smaller company or new technology you weren’t aware of. Allowing dedicated time may throw up a welcome surprise in the form of a smaller company or new technology you weren’t aware of Security trade show checklist Photo Identification: As well as your event pass, some events require photo identification for entry. Notebook and pen: By writing as you go, you will be able to compare notes at the end of the day. Mobile device: Photos and videos are great tools to remind you what you saw at the show, and may pick up details you missed in your notes. Paper schedule and floor plan: In case batteries or network service fail. Business cards: Have a dedicated pouch or pocket for these to avoid rummaging at the bottom of a bag. Comfortable shoes: If you’re spending a whole day at an event, and plan on visiting multiple booths, comfortable shoes are a must! Click here for an infographic on attending the event.

Guests at some of Dubai’s newest hotels will enjoy more efficient and memorable service thanks to eFusion technology from Maxxess. Improving control The eFusion solution is being used for comprehensive streamlining of security and safety – tying together front-of-house and back-of-house operations – at a number of landmark hotel developments in Dubai. The result will be a smoother check-in experience for guests, with minimal queuing, no cumbersome paperwork, and more attentive service. By integrating front and back of house operations at busy hotels, eFusion reduces problems with inefficiency and human error and improves situational awareness and control capability for management teams. Among the latest five-star destinations to adopt eFusion, the Taj Exotica Resort & Spa on Palm Jumeirah, which is due to open later this year, comprises seventeen floors with 200-plus rooms and suites, along with recreational and dining facilities. The Taj Jumeirah Lake Towers, another development by the Indian Hotels Company due to open this year, will also benefit from Maxxess integration technology. Seamless integration eFusion allows rapid integration - off-the-shelf - with a wide choice of security, safety and business-critical technologies eFusion allows rapid integration – off-the-shelf – with a wide choice of security, safety and business-critical technologies. It provides an umbrella management system and allows the highest level of service efficiency by removing the need for operators to continually switch between systems. The systems and IT integrator for the new-build project, PACC Information and Communication Technology LLC, says eFusion was specified because it met requirements for the most robust solution and one that would be easy to adapt going forward. Delivering guest satisfaction “Guest satisfaction is the hotel’s top priority and the eFusion system will let them focus their efforts on delivering it,” says PACC spokesman Shantanu Mukherjee. “Visitors to these new hotels will really notice the difference.” At the Taj Exotica, eFusion will integrate the front of house system from ASSA ABLOY; the Honeywell Simplex fire system controls; the Honeywell Building Management System connected via a Bacnet gateway; and a combination of 403 Hanwha Technwin Wisenet IP internal and external cameras, installed by ISS CCTV and operated through SecureOS video management software (VMS). ASSA ABLOY VingCard access control The ASSA ABLOY VingCard access control system, securing almost 300 doors, will be managed from the eFusion platform alongside other key services due to be added, including the OTIS elevator controls. eFusion will allow the hotel’s management to define events of interest – such a particular door being unlocked, or alarms being set or unset – and provide transactional information to improve security for guests, and accountability. The solution also enables centralised management of room safes, mini-bars and cupboards, and the control of all alarm transactions. Integration with access control system Using eFusion off-the-shelf integration modules, ID badging and building management systems are also fully integrated Cameras linked to door access will allow video pop-up to be triggered by pre-defined events, and operators will have complete PTZ control, playback and video functionality.

Push notifications can be sent to smartphones helping security managers stay alert to any changes on site. Integration with Milestone XProtect VMS Multiple Inception systems can be integrated with a single Milestone system for multi-site monitoring A new integration with Milestone XProtect video management system allows the Inception controller to become the security and access mechanism supporting the Milestone system. Multiple Inception systems can be integrated with a single Milestone system for multi-site monitoring. The integration means live access and alarm events can be sent to Milestone, allowing a wide range of actions to be triggered within the Milestone system, such as operators being able to compare video footage to a user’s photo to grant access. Customised notifications The latest update for Inception also includes the ability to customise notifications that are sent to security managers about events on site as well as the capability to secure the Local Area Network (LAN) and detect if a module has been substituted without permission. A warning now indicates if the LAN is not secured and any detected module substitutions are automatically reported. Tim Northwood, General Manager at Inner Range, said: “These enhancements add to Inception’s competitive advantage, offering easier and smarter access for security managers, the option to integrate with Milestone XProtect and even better security when it comes to the LAN and rogue module substitution. Inception is a now an even greater access and security system for power and flexibility that’s also quick and easy to install and won’t break the bank.” Integriti intelligent security solution Inner Range will showcase new capabilities for its flagship intelligent access control system, Integriti Inner Range will be showcasing these enhancements for Inception as well as new capabilities for its flagship intelligent access control and intruder detection system, Integriti, at IFSEC International on June 18-20 at ExCel London at Stand IF1030.
