Inner Range Announces Appointment of New CEO, Peter Krincevski

FORMER CEO and ongoing managing director Vin Lopes says that he is excited at the prospect of expanding the management team by passing the day to day baton on to a younger champion. Lopes said the move would allow him to spend more time on strategic planning for the CSD/Inner Range group of companies and perhaps allow a little extra time to smell the roses.

Both men admit that the transition will be a gradual one over many months and Lopes said he would not be far away if needed. Lopes will still be active in the company in his role as managing director but day to day administration of the company affairs will be taken on by Krincevski as he comes up to speed. While Krincevski is a new comer to the Security Industry he does come with excellent credentials from his previous roles.

HONEYWELL has signed a definitive agreement to purchase Nextnine, a privately held provider of security management solutions and technologies for industrial cybersecurity of control systems.

Body worn cameras attracted plenty of attention at SecTech Roadshow

WITH SecTech Roadshow under our belts it’s well worth considering pre-Security 2017 trends as we start to think about which products and technologies are most likely to rattle the cage at this year’s big exhibition at Darling Harbour in Sydney late July. 

Given what we saw at SecTech, access control is becoming the electronic security industry’s golden child, with lovely new product coming from all directions and the established players releasing excellent new solutions and upgrades in their own right. From the point of view of installers and integrators, the key with access control is to balance maximum performance with ease of installation and competitive price.

Face recognition may be installed on Gold Coast Public transport
Face recognition may be installed on Gold Coast Public transport

ACCORDING to Queensland assistant police commissioner Peter Crawford, Queensland Police and security partners were considering using facial recognition technology during the 2018 Commonwealth Games on the Gold Coast but no decisions had been made.

News Corporation reported that the technology was set to be rolled out on the Gold Coast’s public transport network “to identify potential terror suspects before they can get close to any sporting or public venue”.

The face recognition solution, which unconfirmed reports suggest may be a Cisco product, would be deployed on the Gold Coast’s trains, trams and buses during the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games next year. Operationally, the system would allow potential terror suspects to be identified before they can get close to crowded venues.
