Drone give-away by Inner Range at IFSEC International 2019

Access control solutions developer Inner Range will be rewarding lucky visitors to its stand with a drone on every day of this year’s IFSEC International, which runs at London’s ExCeL from Tuesday 18 until Thursday 20 June.

Delegates who watch a demonstration of an Inner Range product will be invited to enter their details into the manufacturer’s flagship product, Integriti, and the system will randomly select a winner at the end of each day.

Winners will receive a Holy Stone Mercury 3 racing drone, which can travel at 45 km per hour and transmit HD video and aerial photos in real-time. The camera, which has a 120-degree wide-angle lens, is easy to install or remove, while the drone is designed to reduce wind resistance for more stable filming conditions.

Inner Range has two demonstrations linked to IFSEC’s official ‘Show Me How’ series of presentations and trials. The first showcases how Inner Range’s entry-level access control system, Inception, can now integrate with the Milestone XProtect video management system. The integration allows the Inception controller to become the security and access mechanism supporting the Milestone system.

Inner Range’s enterprise-level intelligent integrated access control system, Integriti, will also feature in the ‘Show Me How’ series. Delegates can see how ‘user qualifications’ can boost Health and Safety procedures, or ease car park credit renewals by alerting users when qualifications or credits are about to expire.

Tim Northwood, general manager at Inner Range, said: “We love showing what our products can do and will happily demonstrate any aspect of our systems that people are curious about. To add an element of fun, anyone who has had a demonstration can enter our prize draw to win a racing drone. IFSEC is full of technology enthusiasts and drones are the latest gadget, whether people use them for serious business purposes or fly them just for fun. We hope delegates will like them.”

Inner Range’s Stand IF1030 will include eight large screens to demonstrate the manufacturer’s access control systems and software in action.

360 Vision Technology supports Help for Heroes charity with £6,000 donation

In a move made out of the desire to make a real difference to the lives of military personnel who have sustained injuries and illness attributed to their service in the British Armed Forces, UK CCTV solutions developer 360 Vision Technology has recently donated £6,000 to the Help for Heroes charity.

The manufacturer of a range of ruggedised PTZ surveillance cameras, 360 Vision Technology handed over an initial cheque to Help for Heroes’ area fundraising manager for the North West, Trevor Fudger, at the company’s Cheshire-based manufacturing facility and headquarters.

Commenting on the donation, Adrian Kirk (strategic account director at 360 Vision Technology) said: “When we launched the Invictus Ultra Low Light HD PTZ camera, the company decided to make a contribution to the charity based on camera sales to help support military service people, who in turn, over the years have been major users ofour video surveillance products. Handing over the first cheque was a tremendously proud moment for us all at 360 Vision Technology, and the proudest moment of my career.”

Kirk added: “Some of our staff have family members currently in service, while our chairman’s father flew Spitfires in World War II, so it felt like a natural fit for us to support serving personnel, veterans and their family members. We’re hoping that other UK businesses will help the charity, too, as it really does make a major difference to people’s lives.”

Since Help for Heroes was founded in 2007, it has supported over 21,000 individuals. This support is enabled in a variety of ways, from welfare advice and psychological support through to new career and fellowship opportunities (for both the wounded and their loved ones) and courses and activities designed to benefit physical and mental well-being. Much of this support is available at the Charity’s four Recovery Centres.

Trevor Fudger commented:  “When signing up to the Armed Forces, individuals make a promise to protect our country. In return, Help for Heroes makes a commitment to support the wounded and their families whenever they need us. To enable us to do that, we need the help of the public and of organisations like 360 Vision Technology, whom we cannot thank enough for their generous donation.”

360 Vision Technology will continue its support for Help for Heroes with another donation based on Invictus camera product sales earmarked for this summer.

LILIN’s megapixel outdoor IP cameras feature edge computing for object counting

LILIN is taking quality and value “to the next level” with the new ZMR8122X-P bullet IP camera. Perfect for outdoor installations, the ZMR8122X-P delivers Full HD 1080p (2 MP) video at up to 30 frames per second (fps), while also offering end users maximum protection against dust, dirt, and water.

On-board Intelligent Video Surveillance (IVS) enables security integrators to tailor the ZMR8122X-P to detect the objects and situations that matter most to the purchasing end user, in turn opening up new possibilities for customised applications.

IVS combines edge-level advanced motion detection, designated Tripwire, that allows a detection line to be drawn within a camera image – Semaphore + Tripwire – when a combination of events need to occur for an alarm to trigger. Object counting enables businesses, for example, to obtain accurate information on the number of people who enter or leave their premises.

To achieve excellent depth of field, the ZMR8122X-P is P-IRIS supported, meaning that it automatically adjusts like an auto iris yet prevents blurred images that can occur when an auto iris over-corrects for bright lights.

With P-IRIS, the camera is the ideal solution for situations where light is constantly and quickly changing, no matter how close or how far the subject is located. True day/night recording is enhanced by infrared LEDs and LILIN’s SenseUp Plus enabling clear night-time images at a distance of up to 115 feet or more.

The ZMR8122X-P bullet IP camera is for those security professionals who require detailed, high-resolution surveillance of challenging locations such as hotels, car parks and loading bays. It’s the latest addition to LILIN’s portfolio of advanced IP video technology engineered to improve ease of use for operators, simplify installation for contractors and deliver stable, high-quality video for end users regardless of lighting conditions to help protect people and facilities. 

Built-in I/O ports allow the connection of external devices to help enhance alarm signalling and also enable features such as two-way audio.

NSI supports World Accreditation Day 2019

The National Security Inspectorate (NSI) offered its full support to World Accreditation Day 2019 (#WAD2019). A global initiative celebrating accreditation, the event (which took place on Sunday 9 June) focused on accredited bodies like the NSI adding value in supply chains. 

From a security and fire safety sector perspective, installers and service providers of security and fire safety systems and security guarding solution are a vital ‘link in the chain’ with their expertise at the point of delivery, keeping people safe, ensuring security solutions harness suitable technology and that they’re fit for purpose.

NSILogo

Whether it be in the design, installation and commissioning of intruder alarms, access control systems, fire detection or suppression systems and CCTV or the monitoring of myriad guarding services, Best Practice in service provision by NSI-approved companies ensures that quality solutions are delivered to customers.

World Accreditation Day marked the work underway to launch ‘IAF CertSearch’, a website designed to provide buyers with the ability to verify management systems certificates such as ISO 9001 (itself a key component of NSI’s Gold approvals). This facility will help to distinguish certificates issued by accredited conformity assessment bodies (CABs), such as the NSI, from certificates issued by non-accredited CABs and to check the authenticity of a certificate.

Richard Jenkins, CEO at the NSI, commented: “World Accreditation Day plays an important role in promoting the value of accreditation and accredited conformity assessment. As an accredited certification body, the NSI conforms to ISO 17021-1 and ISO 17065 in the delivery of Certificates of Approval to over 1,800 approved companies operating in the UK and Eire. The worldwide system of accreditation spans economies accounting for 96% of global GDP*. The NSI is proud to play its small part in this ecosystem underpinning Best Practice, competency and consistent quality within our sector, as recognised by, among others, the National Police Chiefs’ Council, the Security Industry Authority, the Surveillance Camera Commissioner, BAFE and industry and insurer stakeholders.”

NSI Gold Approval combines Quality Management Systems approval ISO 9001 with specific product standards pertinent to services provided, in addition to NSI Quality Schedules and approval criteria specifically designed for the security and fire systems and guarding services sectors. The NSI adopts a ‘treat recommendations as mandatory’ stance with regard to all standards and Codes of Practice, affording buyers confidence that NSI-approved companies adhere to the latest Best Practice at all times.
