Norman Delighted With Brisbane SecTech Camera Shootout

SECTECH Roadshow Camera Shootout's professional test target Norman says he was delighted with the way the shootout went in Brisbane. 

"After a couple of hiccups in previous cities, everything came together perfectly in Brisbane," Norman said. "As a professional observer what's obvious to me is that the shootout is now so big it really has to be grabbed by the scruff of the neck."

According to Norman, what he enjoyed most was the fact the 2-group format left time for more off-piste testing of the cameras on the jig.

"We've looked at backlight testing in every city but the WDR test in Brisbane was really off the hook," Norman said. "Reducing the directional lighting from the front really gave it to these cameras, producing the sorts of flare and ghosting operators usually only see late afternoon and early morning during autumn and winter in ANZ."

Migration of Monitored Fire Alarms and Lift Phones

Lift comms will not migrate by themselves...
Lift comms will not migrate by themselves...

AS the NBN network rolls out across Australia, Telstra’s existing fixed line networks are being progressively disconnected and this impacts on fire alarms and lift phones, too. 

Many clients have monitored fire alarms and lift emergency phones, which will also cease to operate unless they are migrated to an alternate telecommunications network before the disconnection date for their rollout region. Migration does not happen automatically and it must be managed by integrators and end users.

Monitored fire alarms and lift phones are safety-critical services and there are serious public safety, personal injury and property damage risks if they fail to operate in an emergency situation. It is therefore important that your clients register their services with nbn (nbn.com.au/fireandlift) and make early arrangements for their migration by talking to their fire alarm monitoring and/or lift service provider.
