Integrated security manufacturer TDSi will be appearing on both the BSIA and ONVIF stands at IFSEC International 2019, which runs from 18-20 June at London’s ExCeL. TDSi’s team will be available to discuss its latest products with customers and partners on the BSIA Stand (IF2755) and ONVIF Booth (2525) throughout the event.
John Davies, managing director of TDSi, commented: “We’re delighted to be appearing with the BSIA and ONVIF at IFSEC International. At this year’s event, we’ll be highlighting our new GARDiS security software and upcoming hardware range. The new GARDiS controller will be fully ONVIF compliant (Profile A and Profile C) and perfect for integrating with a variety of security and access control systems.”
The GARDiS range was launched at the end of last year with the first version of the access management software and was recently updated by GARDiS Version 1.1, which provides extra functionality and support for installers and end users. A prototype of the new GARDiS Controller (the first hardware in the range) was also unveiled in April this year and will shortly be available to order.
Davies added: “IFSEC International will provide the perfect opportunity for visitors across the UK and internationally to learn more about the benefits of the TDSi GARDiS range and to discuss specific requirements or project needs with our team. The event is a must-attend for anyone in the security industry, providing access to world-renowned industry leaders and networking with security directors and managers, installers, system integrators and distributors from across the globe.”
Integrated security solutions manufacturer TDSi is proud to announce the launch of the latest enhanced version of its new GARDiS software. GARDiS Version 1.1 provides extra functionality and support for end users and security installers.
Tina Baker, software development manager at TDSi, commented: “The latest version of the GARDiS software brings considerable additions to the platform. These include Multiple Access Levels per person, an Office Mode (featuring a Double Tap) and the facility to import people’s details and keys rapidly to facilitate the on-boarding of new authorised users.”
The TDSi GARDiS Access Management Software was launched at the end of last year, ahead of the demonstration of its new prototype GARDiS Controller in April. The GARDiS software and hardware range is designed to give powerful, yet highly user friendly and fully-integrated security thanks to web-based software and integrated hardware.
Further new functions of GARDiS Version 1.1 include ACU Holidays, which can be set against Door-Free access, Access Modes (Card Only/Card+PIN/PIN Only) and specific doors within access levels. There are new screens for ease of use, including ‘Assign multiple access levels to doors’ and ‘Assign multiple people to access levels’.
It’s also now possible to assign multiple access levels per person and temporary access level assignment, for example allowing specific people to unlock the required doors for meetings and then reverting to controlled access when finished. The GARDiS Installer program is also included and ready to use when the system’s activated to ensure security is up-and-running as soon as possible.
Baker added: “The latest version of the GARDiS software shows the rapid pace of development and evolution that the whole range embodies. Flexibility and enhanced security are vital to combat the latest threats and ensure that end users feel safe and can continue to go about their daily business unhindered by the systems that protect them.”
Integrated security solutions manufacturer TDSi is appearing with distribution partner IPTEC on Stand SA-B27 at Intersec Dubai 2019, which opened its doors yesterday and runs until 22 January. TDSi is showing its newly-released GARDiS software, along with the EXgarde Enterprise integrated security management solution and its range of controllers. The company is also discussing its forthcoming incorporation of Bluetooth Low Energy readers and mobile credentials into the TDSi product portfolio.
John Davies, managing director of TDSi, commented: “Intersec Dubai is always a key event at the beginning of the year and we’re very excited to be showcasing our new GARDiS software in the region for the first time in 2019. It was launched just last month for download and is the second part of the GARDiS range of products, more elements of which will be released in due course.”
Davies continued: “We’re also honoured to be appearing as part of the IPTEC Stand this year. As an expert local distributor, IPTEC’s expertise offers a great opportunity for visitors to discuss their specific requirements and to gain a better understanding of the latest security technology on offer, such as our own fully-integrated systems.”
Held in Halls 1-8 at the Trade Centre Arena and Sheikh Saeed Halls 1-3 at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre, Intersec attracts exhibitors and visitors from across the Middle East, Asia and beyond. The show is also an important indicator of what to expect in the security market during the year ahead.
Davies added: “The security market in the Middle East has witnessed renewed growth since the event last year, and particularly so as a result of Governments looking to invest their reach further in terms of infrastructure. It’s a significant export market for TDSi and we rely heavily on our local partners such as IPTEC to ensure that we can offer end users the best possible support and services.”

Intersec Dubai highlights market demands and trends for the coming year. This is something which is highly important to TDSi. Davies concluded: “This event gives us a greater understanding of the needs and demands from this very important security market. If you are attending the event, come and visit myself and the team on Stand SA-B27. We’ll be delighted to discuss your specific security requirements and give you a demonstration of our powerful and highly flexible product range.”
Integrated security manufacturer TDSi will again be supporting Dorset-based children’s hospice Julia’s House by naming the organisation as its charity beneficiary in 2019. The announcement follows a programme of successful activities last year which included a ‘Change for Change’ collection day, a Halloween ‘Bake-Off’ event, participation in the gruelling Tough Mudder and ‘Christmas Jumper Day’.
Francesca Meyrick, marketing manager at TDSi, commented: “Julia’s House holds a special place in the hearts of the TDSi team. Located not far from our head office in Poole, the charity’s hospice supports children with life-limiting illnesses and their families. We’ve been supporting the charity through fundraising initiatives for a number of years now. 2018 was no different, with the Tough Mudder event alone raising £1,200 for this wonderful cause.”
Members of the TDSi team recently visited the hospice centre in Corfe Mullen, Dorset to see how the money raised is helping children and their families. Meyrick elaborated: “It was great to see the amazing facilities and to understand how vital this charity is to those that rely upon its services. Those of us who visited the facility were quite overcome by the amazing work the charity carries out on a daily basis for people that desperately need its support.”
Visiting Julia’s House in person galvanised TDSi into repeating its support in 2019. Meyrick added: “It was also a real eye-opener with regards to the costs involved and just how important it is to show continued support to the charity, which is why we’ve chosen to focus our efforts again for 2019. We’re all excited to be planning and organising a fresh set of fundraising activities to continue our ongoing support.”
Integrated security manufacturer TDSi is introducing its new GARDiS software to the European market on Stand 3C30.1 in Hall 3 at Security Essen 2018 in Germany, which is running from 25-28 September.
Mica Negrilic, international business development manager at TDSi, commented: “We’re proud and very excited to be appearing at Security Essen 2018, where the company will be formally introducing its GARDiS software to the European market. While we usually visit the bi-annual show, this is the first time we’ve had a formal presence at the event for a few years. We’re looking to engage with our existing and new partners and resellers across Europe and beyond.”
Negrilic added: “When we attended the last edition of Security Essen in 2016 we were very impressed by the breadth of visitors from across the EU, the Middle East, Eastern Europe and beyond. There are big opportunities for the security sector across these regions and we feel that TDSi’s portfolio of high quality and high integration systems are perfect for these markets.”
Negrilic and TDSi’s managing director John Davies are available on Stand 3C30.1 to discuss specific security requirements and projects, as well as the considerable advantages of being a TDSi Channel or Distribution Partner.
In conclusion, Negrilic (who heads up TDSi’s French office at Noisy-le-Grand near Paris) said: “This is a particularly exciting time to be working with TDSi. We have impressive growth targets across Europe and this event is the perfect opportunity to meet with us and discuss the potential to grow our businesses together. If you’re attending Security Essen, make sure you visit the TDSi stand to learn more.”
Integrated security solutions manufacturer TDSi will be appearing as a partner at the Milestone Integration Expo UK, which is being held at the Hilton at St George’s Park Hotel, Burton Upon Trent on Wednesday 19 September.
The Milestone Integration Expo UK provides visitors with a greater insight into the powerful integration of Milestone’s XProtect VMS (Video Management System) solution by a number of complementary security systems, including TDSi’s EXgarde security management software.
Alex Rumsey, director of UK sales at TDSi, commented: “Given that it’s the world’s Number One provider of VMS solutions, we’re proud that Milestone has invited us to partner with them at this event. This is the perfect opportunity for installers, specifiers and end users to view and understand the powerful integration capabilities of using Milestone’s XProtect VMS and our EXgarde solution in order to provide a truly 360-degree view of security management.”

The event will feature eight Milestone Partners, all of them providing insights into the flexibility of their integrated security products. Live demonstrations will be held throughout the day from 9.30 am until 4.45 pm, giving visitors the opportunity to attend and participate in as many of these as required.
The Milestone Integration Expo UK is free to attend, but requires registration. Visitors will have access to the newest technologies within access control, video analytics, body-worn cameras, system design and storage optimisation, along with networking opportunities with some of the most successful IP video systems integrators, resellers and distributors in the UK.
Rumsey concluded: “Unlike a general trade show, this is a highly focused event which will provide specific details and assistance for anyone that uses Milestone’s market-leading systems. All of the presentation teams will be there to provide a solid educational forum and to discuss specific applications for the technology in the real world.”
