There were also presentations from Hills’ sponsorship partners, including Ruckus, Juniper, Pelco, Axis, Assa Abloy, and Vivotek.

At the Tuesday evening gala dinner there were awards including Top Performers, which went to Telstra SNP, Siemens and Integrators Australia. Rising Stars awards went to Fortis Security, ACG Fire and Security and Constant Security.

“The Genetec summit was highly successful and provided a good opportunity to network and collaborate with Genetec’s technology partners and Genetec’s Andrew Elvish gave a presentation that was certainly a main highlight,” said Logan Power of integrator, Fortis Security.

“The technology insights and user case studies behind each new product or feature Andrew was able to demonstrate were very good. Hills distribution of all of the leading vendors at the event showed the strength of the Hills portfolio, which will enable Hills to provide to their customers, integrated turnkey solutions based around the Genetec platform.”
