The security week: Environment, foals, and CCTV advice

Yes. It’s time for another week’s worth of security news thrills and spills. Let’s get down to it.

Last week I headed along to Siemens’ ‘Answers for the Environment’ event in Coventry, where I had the chance to have a quick chat with Security Solutions MD Dave Pickles. I even made a video of it. You can watch that here.

There’s also some video of a foal being born – it’s not nearly as gross as it could be. The mare belongs to champion showjumper Andrew Mizon, who had a surveillance system installed by IPEye using Axis cameras to keep an eye on his horses. Watch it here.

We’ve also had a fair amount of advice, tips and useful info on I4S this week – here’s The Networker on IP surveillance in the public transport sector ; the return of the CCTV Doctor, discussing megapixel cameras; and Iain’s Top 5, which looks at the public perception of CCTV.

Security Institute chairman Mike Bluestone has decided to move back into the world of guarding by joining Corps Security. SMT Online editor Brian Sims spoke to him about the reasons for the move. Read all about it here.

Also this week: zombies and holograms. Cool. Plimsoll Publishing has gone ahead and described some guarding companies as ‘zombies’. Why? Read the story and find out. And the holograms have to do with banknote security. There are some very cool pictures to have a look at here.

Our Song About Security this week is a truly reprehensible country number. Once you’ve listened to it, all other music will appear significantly better. It will help give you a healthy sense of perspective.

And here is a classic compilation video of news bloopers. Enjoy.,
