The security week: Physical security and DVR impressions

It’s that time of the week – security news round-up/digest/omnibus funtimes time. Oh yes.

First off the blocks is our latest Bench Test – and it’s a glowing review for Samsung’s SHR 8162 DVR. Read all about it here.

Then there’s a warning that the physical security industry needs a long hard look at itself, and “a major restructure”, according to a survey from Memoori.

This week SMT Online editor Brian Sims looked at the key findings of a review into the Security Industry Authority in his SMT Online Editor’s View. Interesting.

We’ve also got the latest top five tidbits of advice from Iain Cameron of Mirasys – who looks at calculating bandwidth on a local area network. Useful!


Advertisement break: Hey, you – yeah, you! Are you looking for a security job? You are? Tremendous. Here is one that you should apply for: it’s a field sales role for respected industry locking etc types Chubb. Go ahead and apply for it! That way, you may get the job.


Valentine’s Day is fast approaching, and the people behind clothing-specific dating website uniformdating.com have approached I4S with an offer we couldn’t refuse – £10 off any subscription on their site simply by entering the code SECURITY10 on their upgrades page. It’s particularly suitable for security types who wear a uniform, I’d be so bold as to suggest. And are single, ideally.

This week’s Song About Security comes from perennial weirdos Sparks. It was suggested by a reader and everything.

Don’t forget that you can now pre-register for security exhibition jamboree IFSEC right now, for free. And if you’re exhibiting, you can go ahead and enter the IFSEC 2010 Security Industry Awards. Potential kudos!

Video analytics advice, lingerie, and opinion

A thrilling day here at info4security, and for all the right reasons.

The first thing to set your pulses racing is a juicy and enticing article on the questions to ask when you’re thinking of purchasing a security system that involves video analytics. Ooh la la! Or something!

Then there’s the ever seductive Editor’s View from SMT Online editor and heart throb Brian Sims. This week Brian takes a firm but fair look at the Home Office and the House of Lords. And illegal immigrants. And CCTV. He does it all, really.

And finally, as some kind of added bonus, we have a story about the safe online purchase of saucy lingerie for yourself or your loved one this Valentine’s Day. I would recommend not giving it to a stranger, however, as your intentions may be misconstrued. And you may be arrested.

Finally, get together with every single attractive person in the security world at the IFSEC Conference 2009. It’s sure to be a humdinger.

Gosh, these pages look interesting: www.info4security.com, and www.ifsec.co.uk.
