HID Global Corporation, a leading manufacturer in the access control industry, today announced that it will participate in Norbain LIVE06.  Norbain, recognised as one of Europe's most successful electronic security solution distributors, will hold LIVE06 at eight locations around the UK, between Tuesday 19th September and Thursday 12th October.  Product experts from HID will attend the shows to answer questions and provide in-depth advice about current and future installations to customers.

The LIVE events provide a forum for electronic security equipment installers, end users and specifiers to see the market's latest innovations and products likely to create a strong impact on the industry.  This year marks HID's second consecutive appearance at the LIVE events.

HID will support this year's events by providing personalised iCLASS cards as visitor badges for each visitor.  The cards will be printed prior to the events, as well as on site by the Norbain team, using a Fargo printer and Access ID software, demonstrating a solution that HID Global now offers with its Fargo and Access ID product brands.

"We are very happy to participate in LIVE06 again this year.  Last year's events were great opportunities to work with our friends and colleagues at Norbain to introduce some of our newer products to their customers," said Melissa Jenkins, HID's Director of Sales for UK & Ireland.  "Our iCLASS range of readers and cards were especially popular, with many installers now seeing the technology as a viable alternative to using our standard proximity for new access control installations.''

The events provide a platform for HID to inform and educate visitors and exhibitors of its latest products, including the R90 self-contained long range contactless smart card reader.  As part of the iCLASS family, the R90 reader combines a longer read range with enhanced security through encryption and mutual authentication standard with HID iCLASS 13.56 MHz contactless smart card products.

The new RP40 multi-technology reader will also be introduced as a card reader solution for customers upgrading their current card system from HID 125 KHz Proximity to 13.56 MHz HID iCLASS credentials. The single reader simultaneously supports HID Prox, iCLASS, MIFARE, DESFire and HID multi-technology cards.

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?
