Grey market - risk or reward...

SEN’S longest ever online poll, which received almost 200 responses from installers and integrators over an 18-month period, found that while most installers were wary of grey market products, nearly 50 per cent would seriously consider using them. 

In answer to the question: “Would You Ever Use Grey Market Products?” the SEN poll found that for 15 per cent of installers the savings are worth the risks – they voted yes. For 27 per cent of responders, the risks of grey market products are acceptable sometimes, depending on the product and the application.

Genetec Airport Sense Taps Into Security Cameras, Sensors

Airport Sense advanced operational analytics
Airport Sense advanced operational analytics

GENETEC has released Airport Sense, an advanced operational analytics solution that relies on data provided by an airport’s existing security infrastructure, including cameras, sensors, and various detection devices to produce actionable intelligence about airport security, operations, and passenger flow.

Until now, airports have traditionally relied on standalone, unconnected systems to manage passenger flow and security. By analyzing and correlating data provided by multiple sensors such as video surveillance cameras, access control hardware, and IoT connected devices, Airport Sense gives airport security and operations managers, business analysts, and airport executives, a deeper understanding of what’s happening in their facilities. This allows them to make timely, informed decisions to improve the passenger experience and increase revenue for duty-free, retail, and food services in the airport terminal.
