The Physical Security Interoperability Alliance (PSIA) announced it will host a reception at ISC West 2011 to demonstrate the final pieces of its security suite of specifications. Arecont Vision, Hikvision, Honeywell, IQinVision, ObjectVideo, Tyco, and UTC Fire & Security will demonstrate products relying on five PSIA specifications to support systems interoperability.

The reception, sponsored by Honeywell and UTC Fire & Security, will take place at ISC West in Las Vegas on Wednesday, April 6 from 2:00-4:00 PM. The networking event, which will be held in Meeting Room 302 in the Sands Expo Center of the Las Vegas Convention Center, is an opportunity for all industry stakeholders to view PSIA specifications in action and see first-hand, the benefits of the PSIA security systems approach to interoperability. The PSIA Area Control working group will feature its area control specification v.8, the final set of applications needed for broad physical security systems interoperability.

"Interoperability for physical security has been a high priority for our company," said Ken Addy, Vice President of Engineering for Honeywell Security Group. "The PSIA has established a strong position in this effort by bringing together the major stakeholders to provide an open and collaborative environment, while taking into consideration the critical elements necessary to achieve effective and open systems architecture," added Addy.

"It's important to consider market needs when designing a systems solution," said Chuck Hutzler, Vice President of Product Management at Tyco Security Products. "In addition to soliciting participation from the manufacturers involved in creating specifications, the PSIA also reaches out to architects, consultants, and systems integrators, who have provided essential input to define solutions that effectively support customers."

Since its inception in 2008, the PSIA has achieved a number of important milestones including the industry's first IP video specification and subsequent specifications to support storage, analytics, access, and intrusion. In addition, the introduction of a common metadata and event model (CMEM) and common security (CSEC) specification will allow IP-based physical security products to communicate without the need for custom software integration.
