What a week of security news it’s been, eh? It was crazy!
How’s this? It’s a bit of an in-depth look at one of the questions in our CCTV End User Survey – this time dealing with performance expectations. Wow!
SMT Online editor Brian Sims this week looked at the security implications following the latest bit of football violence following the West Ham/Millwall match, in his SMT Online Editor’s View. And this week’s Song About Security focuses on that very topic as well.
We’ve also got a couple of articles on the furore surrounding the London Met Police report into the effectiveness of CCTV for crime solving – here’s take one; and here’s take two. Double fun!
Don’t forget to check out our latest Bench Test; get some words of advice from the Access Control Doctor; and find out about the debate surrounding using video analytics at the edge or centre of a CCTV system. Mind blowing!
Don’t forget to register for IFSEC India 2009, Internal Security India, and the one day Counter Terror India event. You’ll have the time of your life.
Guess what? It’s time for the latest in our line of acclaimed and influential Bench Tests. This time around it’s Raytel’s AR-716E-Ray two door controller. How did it fare under the Bench Test spotlight? There’s only one way to find out. That is by reading the article.
For everyone who likes lists and links and the like, today we have the rundown of the top 10 best read stories on I4S during August. What tickled readers’ fancies last month? There’s only one way etc.
Our Access Control Doctor is back in the metaphorical building as well, and this time he’s talking about web controlled access systems. It’s useful stuff!
Registrations are now open for the Internal Security India conference, which takes place alongside IFSEC India. Get involved with those things. Go ahead.
Yo yo yo yo yo yo yo. Hi there. It’s been another week of high octane security news excitement, so let’s dive right in.
First up is old pal Wilson Chowdhry with his take on the licensing – or lack of licensing – of in-house security officers. He thinks it’s a missed opportunity. Yourself?
This morning myself and Security Installer editor Alan Hyder met with a man with one of the coolest surnames in all of security: Todd Rockoff. (Sure, he’s no Roger Vigilance, but who is?) Todd’s the executive director of the HDcctv Alliance, who are advocates of High Definition CCTV, you’ll be shocked to know. This new technology aims to utilise broadcast quality HD images across standard coaxial cable, and looks like it could be an important alternative to megapixel IP CCTV. Here’s a short video of what he had to say. We’ll be running a full exclusive feature interview on I4S next week.
Speaking of HD, Dallmeier’s new series of recorders glories in the ridiculous name of ‘In Memory of Leonardo’. I have nothing more to add to that one.
This week’s Song About Security comes from Public Enemy, and follows in that fine tradition of tunes about escaping from jail. Or gaol. But I assume they probably mean jail.
IFSEC India 2009 is happening in just a couple of months’ time. Why not go there, and also visit Internal Security India, the Counter Terror India conference, and Firex India? Do so! It’s no joke.
Hello, security news groovesters. Today Security Installer editor Alan Hyder brings us the details of a new report that looks at the winners and losers in the security market. Compelling reading!
We’ve also got a Siemens CCTV upgrade for Preston North End Football Club. That’s some glamorous stuff!
Everybody loves video analytics, and today ioimage brings us the delightful story of some video analytics protecting water tanks. There’s also an excellent photo!
Over on I4S India, the government is mulling a ‘mega city policing plan‘. That really does sound quite mega.
Speaking of India, why not either be there or go there and then visit IFSEC India? That would be good. Also on then is Internal Security India and Firex India. Some super added value stuff there, mark my words. Word!
Hello you. Welcome to the start of the security week – which, interestingly enough, coincides with the start of the conventional working week. How fortuitous!
Today we have a story that’s heavy on the acronyms, with IMS claiming that members companies signed up to ONVIF have an overall larger market share than those who are members of the PSIA. What’s all that about? Read the story and find out.
We’ve also got a story that features a quite unflattering photo of UK Home Secretary Alan Johnson, who has launched a website to tackle anti-social behaviour.
There’s success for IFSEC’s South African adventure; RemGuard, perhaps unsurprisingly, advocating the use of remote monitoring; a little bit of corporate fraud excitement; and a chance to use a Chinese flag to illustrate a story that uses the words ‘command centre’ and ‘operational’ in its headline. Macho.
Did you know that the next big security show that deserves your attention takes place in India? It’s called IFSEC India. But that’s not all! Not by a longish shot. There’s also Internal Security India, and Firex India. How useful!
