EKA CyberLock System offers the functionality of access control without having to hardwire each door/lock. Each key holder has accountability for their actions as each key retains a full audit trial. Keys are programmed and allocated to only work on chosen padlocks/door locks/plant equipment (…any lock on the EKA system) within certain date & time periods, which has a number of benefits in terms key management, negating the issue of lost keys. Check it out at SAGE.

Avigilon’s Appearance Search is another SAGE must-see. We saw it at Security 2016 in Melbourne and it’s very special. According to local distributor CSD, Appearance Search revolutionises the way end users interact with surveillance systems thanks to their ability to search for an individual in seconds. After identifying a subject of interest, operators and investigators can immediately search and find out; where did they come from? What did they do? Where did they go? Where are they now? Applications for this technology include airports, train stations, hospitals, education, city surveillance, shopping centres – anywhere security teams need to identify and locate individuals virtually instantaneously. 

On the Geutebruck stand is the G-SIM + G-Link, which arranges video streams and all pertinent information displayed (and disseminated where required), in a timely fashion. You get an overview of information including images, graphical maps, status details, process data, lists, workflow instructions, health monitoring, comprehensive user audits and operator messaging. At its heart, G-Link interfaces a GEUTEBRÜCK video management system with an entire security infrastructure, along with process control systems and facility management.

Axis is also bringing its new 20MP Canon EF lens system-compatible camera, designed for public surveillance and major sites – not to be missed, this is an awesome piece of work. 

The must-see at the Dahua stand is new DSS server, which enables a control room to monitor live and recorded footage from body-worn and vehicle mounted cameras via 4G, 3G and Wi-Fi networks. Given recent studies show body-worn cameras reduce the incident of complaints against law enforcement, this solution has serious potential. The server allows users to track a moving person or vehicle, receive live panic alerts and hold 2-way audio conversations. At SAGE, the Dahua DSS server will be connected with our Mobile NVRs and body-worn cameras so you can see the system running live for yourself. DSS can control various Dahua solutions – access control, static CCTV cameras, video intercoms, emergency call points and Dahua’s intelligent parking system. It also integrates with third-party products and platforms.

SAAB security solutions give operators a simple, complete, security and surveillance picture in real time as events unfold to eliminate guesswork and stress. Situations are resolved as they happen through a comprehensive, intuitive interface. Operators can see what is happening immediately and act on emergency or security breaches confidently with the fastest and most accurate data. 

LED Sensormat is sensing device that is impervious to typical environment disturbances. It incorporates SecureMat technology which comprises an LED, a micro sensor and a mesh of plastic optical fibre that’s bedded into an industry-grade floor mat. The light signal travelling through the optical fibre is attenuated by pressure applied to the mat by movement of an intruder and a processor inside the mat’s micro sensor deciphers the signal using algorithms seeking threshold signals that generate an alarm event that is signalled to an alarm panel. This light signal is very sensitive to pressure on fibres and that means clever software is able to discern the nature of vibrations to a very high degree, allowing the sensor to be programmed to also monitor events other than intrusion.
