Traka UK launches V Touch solution for limited space key management

Traka UK has launched a new intelligent key cabinet specifically designed to offer controlled access management for critical keys at locations where space is limited and only a few credentials need to be managed.

The company has unveiled its new V Touch as a secure unit with a seven-inch touch display to accommodate up to five sets of keys.

Powered by Traka’s exclusive electronics system, the V Touch presents full audit control capability such that administrators know exactly what keys have been taken, and by whom, together with the ability to instantly access usage reports.

Traka’s V Touch is recommended as part of a networked solution using Traka’s specialist Traka Web software to enable central control of critical keys.

Steve Bumphrey, UK sales director at Traka, stated: “We’ve created the V Touch as an intelligent key management system to help ensure keys and credentials can be securely managed, even where space is at an absolute premium. This could include on board ships or for remote locations requiring maintenance. We hope the launch of the V Touch, which comes equipped with all the traditional management benefits you would expect from a Traka Touch system, demonstrates our commitment to listening and continually evolving our product range to meet both new and existing customer requirements.”

With further features including a solid locking door, built-in power supply and full battery back-up in the event of a power failure, Traka’s V Touch is available with card reader or biometric access options to enable customer preference and accommodation of individual site requirements.

Traka provides intelligent key and equipment management control to better protect essential assets resulting in improved efficiency, reduced downtime, less damage, fewer losses, lower operating costs and significantly less administration, allied with transparency and greater accountability and responsibility.

Abloy UK publishes White Paper focused on Smart Infrastructure Integration

Access control technology is increasingly forming part of a greater, fully-ntegrated infrastructure system that links every aspect of a building together.

Next-generation Smart Integrated Infrastructure offers new prospects for effectively managing the way in which we live, work and grow, while at the same time allowing us all to remain safe and secure.

AbloyUKWhitePaper

With this in mind, Abloy UK has created a Smart Infrastructure Integration White Paper. This document explores how organisations in all sectors can take advantage of cutting-edge security and access controls, and how they can link into a wider connected ecosystem to deliver operational efficiencies to potentially under-resourced businesses.

New date announced for free-to-attend BSIA/FIA-supported cyber security seminar

A free-to-attend, half-day seminar which aims to help security buyers and installers alike to navigate the complex world of cyber security is being held in Solihull on Thursday 2 November.

Organised by the British Security Industry Association (BSIA) and supported by the Fire Industry Association (FIA), the event will include presentations from a wide range of cyber security experts, with a particular focus on the potential vulnerabilities of ‘connected products’ – meaning any security product that can be accessed or operated remotely via the Internet (eg intruder alarms, video surveillance systems and access control solutions) – and how these vulnerabilities can be combated.

Delegates will be informed about the potential cyber risks facing their business, with presentations from the West Midlands Police’s digital cyber crime team and the Scottish Business Resilience Centre’s team of ‘ethical hackers’.

Attendees will also find out how the BSIA’s ongoing work in the field of cyber security is helping the security industry to protect itself and its customers.

Finally, delegates will benefit from a summary of the European Union’s new General Data Protection Regulation, which is set to come into force in May 2018.

The seminar is open to security and fire solutions buyers and installers, or indeed anybody from either industry with an interest in improving their business’ cyber security and data protection policies.

Registration for the event will be open from 9.00 am, with presentations starting at 9.45 am and the event expected to finish at around 1.30 pm.

*A full programme and online booking forms for both delegates and exhibitors are available from the BSIA’s website

Texecom launches Texecom Connect security and automation platform

Texecom’s new connectivity platform, Texecom Connect, allows security professionals to deliver enhanced smart solutions for commercial customers without compromising on core security principles. With Texecom Connect, security installers are able to offer end user customers a secure system with the additional benefits of automation, smart management and flexible control, all from Texecom’s established and familiar Premier Elite range of control panels.

The Texecom Connect concept is a very simple one. At its heart is a professional quality graded intruder alarm system that uses the proven Premier Elite range of control panels. Along with the intruder alarm system, security installers can offer a more immersive experience for the customer, allowing them to take control of the system, along with other peripherals such as video, lighting and power management.

TexecomConnect

Texecom Connect is compatible with all Premier Elite control panels including legacy systems (via a firmware update). Texecom Connect enhances Premier Elite alarm systems with the addition of an App, smart communicator and API. Together, these allow end users to engage with their intruder alarm solutions in an intuitive and flexible way, ensuring that advanced security, building control and site automation can all be managed easily and securely from any connected and authorised iOS smart phone or tablet device.

For end users, Texecom Connect aims to transform the user experience. The Texecom Connect App is designed to provide an environment where end users actively want to interact with their system solutions.

For security installers, Texecom Connect ensures that, while smart functionality can be added to increase the value of the system, this doesn’t impact upon, nor compromise the performance of the graded professional intruder alarm systems.

Clym Brown, marketing director at Texecom, said: “Texecom Connect introduces a choice of connectivity options to transform the user experience, enabling intruder alarm systems to deliver customer value every day. Texecom Connect uses technology to make people’s lives easier, not more complex. The Texecom Connect App has been carefully designed to allow end users access to an array of custom features and to tailor their App experience for their own personal and particular needs, without the need for them to resort to complicated programming.”
