Ava Group to demonstrate latest technology and innovations at ISC West 2019

Security risk management services and technology solutions specialist Ava Group will be showcasing its portfolio of security solutions at ISC West in Las Vegas from 10-12 April. ISC West is the largest converged security industry trade show in the US. The event provides a major platform for professional networking, sourcing new suppliers and introducing new products and technologies, encompassing everything from access control to unmanned vehicles. Importantly, ISC West also encompasses the SIA Education@ISC Conference (which runs from 9-11 April).

Ava Group’s technology division incorporates two well-established security risk management companies – Future Fibre Technologies (FFT) and BQT Solutions – both of which will be in attendance. Ava Group offers a portfolio of complementary solutions encompassing both fibre optic intrusion detection as well as high security access control and locking. Ava Group is to present the latest solutions from its technology division, namely the Orca lock and enhancements to the Aura Ai-2 controller.

The enhanced Aura Ai-2 from FFT features high-sensitivity detection, location accuracy, cut resilience capability and the industry’s longest linear range. This product also features new ultra-low noise optical detection electronics ensuring that a single controller can cover a distance up to 110 km, accurately detecting, locating and reporting multiple disturbances to just +/- two metres.

BQT Solutions will be demonstrating the new high-strength Orca lock (YG80). Building on the success of the award-winning YG10, the Orca lock is designed for securing gates, roller doors, shipping containers and any other large door or entrance way. Alongside the Orca’s physical attributes, a further feature is its ability to fully integrate into an access control system. Orca is fully-monitored, weatherproof and user configurable.

The Ava Group team will be on hand to explain how its solutions are being used in real-world projects to address the latest threats. Chief operating officer Scott Basham commented: “We’ve seen continued growth in demand for our products in the US market and returning to ISC West provides us with a perfect platform to showcase our broad range of capabilities and explain to visitors how our product range can be applied to meet their particular needs. We always welcome the opportunity to be face-to-face with our customers worldwide and thoroughly enjoy being able to engage directly with the market in this way.”

As part of the conference line-up, Ava Group’s CTO Dr Jim Katsifolis will be presenting on ‘Fibre Optic Perimeter Intrusion Detection Systems: Trends, Myths and Realities Revealed’ at 10.15 am on 9 April. This presentation promises to cover how best to select appropriate fibre sensing technology products when specifying, as well as how to assess the true performance of such PIDS systems.

With over 1,000 exhibitors and brands and an anticipated 30,000 security professionals, ISC West is seen as a ‘must-visit’ for anyone in the security risk industry.
