Optex Europe will offer a comprehensive perimeter protection portfolio catering for critical infrastructure and mission-critical applications

Optex Europe will exhibit its complete perimeter protection offerings from its REDWALL to Fiber SenSys ranges

Leading detector business Optex Europe will be showcasing its complete perimeter protection offering from its REDWALL and Fiber SenSys ranges at the Counter Terror Expo at the Olympia in London on April 19th and 20th.

Included on the stand will be the award winning REDSCAN laser detector which when mounted vertically, creates a 60-metre detection area that functions like an invisible wall. If sited horizontally, it creates a detection area of 30-metres and an arc of 180 degrees. With four outputs for remote video applications and four truly programmable detection areas linked with these outputs, REDSCAN is ideal for controlling pan/tilt/zoom (PTZ) cameras.

Alongside REDSCAN will be a range of new products being exhibited for the first time since the company's acquisition of Fiber SenSys. The Fiber SenSys, fibre optic sensor range, which has been approved by Sandia National Laboratories and the US Air Force, includes high-performance intrusion detectors for large government and critical infrastructure applications. These include military (permanent and tactical), airports, government facilities, prisons, nuclear and chemical plants, refineries, heritage properties, power stations and reservoirs. Fiber SenSys also produces the only PL-1 Nuclear-rated fibre optic security products in the world.

Geoff Pye, General Manager of Optex Europe, says that the combination of REDWALL and Fiber SenSys provides customers of both companies with a complete and comprehensive range of outdoor detection solutions: "It successfully unites two of the security industry's leading sensor manufacturers," he says.

"The ranges are almost wholly complementary, meaning Optex Europe can now offer customers an even more comprehensive perimeter protection portfolio, catering for critical infrastructure and mission-critical applications, and on show in the UK for the first time."

Lessons Learned with Vanderbilt: How have you adapted to the COVID-19 pandemic?

With the postponement of tradeshows and events due to the effects of COVID-19, Vanderbilt and ComNet have taken their high quality, innovative solutions online, directly to their customer base. Through an Online Events and Training resource, you can stay connected with the brands’ top resources and products, as well as join upcoming product webinars hosted by their in-house experts. With a majority of the world currently working from home, businesses must respond to this changing landscape. As such, Vanderbilt and ComNet have turned to online resources to share new product demonstrations and other company news. One cornerstone of the ACRE brands approach was the launch of their Online Events and Training resource page. Ross Wilks, Head of Marketing Communications at Vanderbilt, credits this online resource as the anchor to their communicative success with customers at present. “Through weekly webinars delivered by our in-house experts, Vanderbilt and ComNet have embraced more virtual opportunities to continuously communicate to our customers regarding our latest and most relevant products,” he says. “To date, our webinars have covered a wide range of industry topics such as Why Physical Security and Cloud go together, and The most recent developments in card cloning and reader hacking. Attendance to these online events has proved popular and effective in keeping communication with our customer base open and engaging.” Each webinar ends with a Q&A section, as well as follow-up articles on the most asked questions, plus recordings of the webinars being made available to attendees. As such, the webinar approach has proven a receptive approach for Vanderbilt and ComNet. The Online Events and Training resource acts as a one-stop-shop for all virtual information. Overall, the page outlines the brands’ value-added resources for customers, including the ability to request a remote product demonstration, the availability of free online training, 24/7 access to the Vanderbilt webshop, plus the aforementioned weekly webinars. Vanderbilt and ComNet’s business mantra is built on a foundation of customer-focused core values such as empowerment, collaboration, and high performance and Wilks credits this mentality with their ability to keep information flowing to their base during the present pandemic. “The ACRE brands moved early to kick-start online webinars and ramp up awareness of their already existing online training and shopping options. Now more than ever, it is important to keep customers up to date on the latest offerings,” Wilks explains. “Our commitment has always been to make their customer’s security journey the best possible experience, and that is what this Online Events and Learning page primarily focuses on,” he concludes.

What’s new with video management systems (VMS)?

Video management systems (VMS) have been around almost since the advent of IP cameras.

But the evolution is far from over. We asked this week’s Expert Panel Roundtable: What’s new with video management systems (VMS), and what are the new opportunities?
