GJD, an award-winning manufacturer and designer of smart electronic perimeter detection and high-performance LED illumination equipment, is pleased to announce the launch of its IPAnything module (IPA). The IPAnything is a simple yet powerful input/output controller, which is designed to convert any type of analogue sensor to an IP system, or vice versa. IPAnything module The IPAnything is built in a compact, heavy duty waterproof housing. It is fitted with a 12V/24V DC socket to power the sensor, four alarm inputs, three relay outputs and an analogue input, this ensures that the IPAnything can truly handle all types of equipment. The IPAnything allows the installer to create individual network alarms to connect video management systems (VMS), IP cameras or other network devices. It also enables the installer to monitor and control alarm sensors, sirens, gates and lights. In addition, its web-based user interface is an intuitive way for installers to configure network alarms for integration with VMS software, or direct control of cameras. The IPAnything provides flexibility as it is easy for installers to add IP devices onto an analogue based security or home automation system Easy IP device installation The IPAnything provides flexibility as it is easy for installers to add IP devices onto an analogue based security or home automation system. This has many advantages including a cost-effective way to future proof the site as new actions can be created and adjusted over the network. It is also simple to add additional IP products onto the network. Greg Stuttle, Business Development Manager at GJD commented: “The IPAnything is an extremely useful device. It has proved itself to be a very versatile product as it is a problem solver for projects that require analogue equipment to be converted on to an IP system.” Powered by PoE Another huge benefit of the IPA is that it is powered by PoE, which is more cost effective and environmentally friendly than connecting to mains power. PoE provides advantages such as reduced overhead costs from the reduction of power outlets required per installed device. Another key benefit is reduced cabling on site, this makes the installation look neater.

BSIA’s Export Council celebrated its 20th anniversary with security exporters from across the UK Security exporters from across the UK gathered together with key industry stakeholders at IFSEC International to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the British Security Industry Association’s Export Council. Established in 1994, the Export Council serves as a dedicated forum for relationships between the UK's security industry and overseas buyers to be founded and cultivated, and acts as an invaluable port of call for overseas-based contacts interested in developing a relationship with a UK company as a partner, customer or distributor. Celebrations marking the 20th anniversary of the Export Council took place on the BSIA’s stand (D1500) at IFSEC International, and featured brief presentations from current Export Council Chairman, Greg Stuttle of GJD Manufacturing Ltd, as well as founding member of the Export Council, Julie Kenny CBE DL of Pyronix, and UKTI DSO’s Senior Security Advisor and Head of Business Strategy, Simon Everest. Speaking at the event, Greg Stuttle welcomed the support of key stakeholders, including BSIA members and UKTI: “Exporting has become very important to our business and for all those involved in exporting. We get incredible support from stakeholders, the BSIA and UKTI.” Reflecting on the progress made by the Export Council over the past 20 years, Julie Kenny CBE DL added: “In the last 20 years we have worked together with the BSIA and UKTI to grow exporting within the industry. At the time [of the formation of the Export Council] we did not export more than 5% of our annual turnover, and that number has now exceeded 40%. For some members, this figure is as high as 70%” "We work closely with the BSIA and exhibitions around the world, and our relationship continues to grow from strength to strength supporting companies to grow their exports all over the world" Commenting on the prosperous relationship between UKTI and the BSIA, Simon Everest said: “We work closely with the BSIA and exhibitions around the world, and our relationship continues to grow from strength to strength supporting companies to grow their exports all over the world.” Visitors to the stand for the celebration included Commercial Officers from British Embassies around the world, as well as companies new to exporting, seeking advice and guidance on getting started. Daren Wood, Membership and Export Services Manager at the BSIA, comments: “For BSIA members, exporting became increasingly important throughout the economic downturn, and now that the country enters a period of growth, we expect more and more of our members to be exploring opportunities abroad.” “UK security suppliers enjoy a favourable reputation in overseas markets for their experience and track record in supplying quality security products and services, and the Export Council continues to help businesses capitalise on this through facilitating contacts with overseas buyers and the organisation of UK pavilions at trade shows including Intersec Dubai, Security Essen and of course, IFSEC’s overseas counterparts.” “For two decades, the help and assistance offered by the Association’s Export Council has enabled UK security exporters to grow their business on a global scale, and we were proud to celebrate this achievement yesterday.”
