Exclusive UK drone launches outlined for IFSEC International at London’s ExCeL

From drone and anti-drone technology through to the latest developments in biometrics, surveillance and storage systems, IFSEC International 2019 (which takes place from 18-20 June at ExCeL in London’s Docklands) will be home to dozens of exclusive product launches.

In terms of drones and anti-drone technology, there will be new launches from several industry-leading businesses, including Azur Drones, Percepto and Dedrone.

Azur Drones is offering an exclusive UK launch of its SKEYETECH autonomous drone, which is the first to be officially accredited to make fully autonomous drone flights in Europe. Drone-in-a-Box provider Percepto recently tested its autonomous drones over the world’s first 5G network in Korea, and is now claiming that its technology will enhance real-time video streams and lower battery consumption, thereby lengthening mission times and the distances drones can travel from their launchpad.

For its part, Dedrone offers anti-drone or counter-drone tech. The company’s DroneTracker aggregates sensor information about potential threats, recognising and classifying drones of all kinds. Its web-based interface shows live threats and real-time drone flight paths and also records forensic details (including video evidence).

At IFSEC International 2019, more than 500 security suppliers will showcase over 10,000 products to 27,000 attending security professionals. Security solution sourcing opportunities are to be complemented by 35-plus hours of educational content, including a Keynote address from broadcaster and security expert Frank Gardner.

Visitors to this year’s event will have a chance to meet F1’s Finnish motor racing icon Valtteri Bottas. Security expert Abloy UK is inviting visitors to learn more about its innovative new global vision ‘Abloy – For Trust’ and, at the same time, meet Bottas who was recently named as the company’s new brand ambassador.

Biometrics and facial recognition software

Security professionals are also invited to challenge Axxon’s facial recognition software and find their face among tens of thousands of IFSEC International visitors in just a few seconds. In addition, visitors can view a live demonstration of Bradbury Group’s award-winning Vertex crowd control emergency escape gates in the show’s Attack Zone.

Looking at how security professionals can take advantage of the advances in facial recognition software, but without compromising security, IFSEC International will feature video analytics technology that can analyse footage without a human operator and knows the difference between a person of interest and a non-person of interest.

BioSmart – the developer of biometric access control systems – will launch several new products related to palm vein identification. Applications include time and attendance and access control. The company’s solutions are suitable for applications in factories, restaurants, retail chains and banks.

Solutions for business

Turning towards security for business properties, huperLab is launching “a new era” of huperEyes 3D stereo cameras that increase detection accuracy and efficiency with Artificial Intelligence-based stereo vision technology, offering 3D tailgating detection and 3D virtual fence detection that’s required at high-risk places, as well as 3D people-counting solutions for wide area coverage.

CSL Group is launching the brand new DualCom Pro Range, offering easier, faster installations and even greater resilience for end users.

Inim Electronics will debut SOL, an all-in-one wireless panel for professionals managing up to 60 wireless devices such as PIR, dual-tech detectors, magnetic contacts, smoke detectors, outdoor sirens and wireless keypads.

Ajax Systems is bringing The Hub Plus to market. This is designed to protect large-scale facilities harbouring a great number of rooms and people. A new and powerful processor and increased memory capacity have expanded the capabilities of the control panel: up to 150 detectors and 50 CCTV cameras may now be connected to The Hub. 50 end users can be added and 25 groups created for room security management.

Live demonstrations of the new Modular Lockers from Traka will show how this solution can be used to manage equipment such as body-worn camera technology. Octopus will also be at the show. The company’s all-new mobile distress application allows end users to send a panic alarm to a Security Response Centre, whose operators can then pinpoint the exact location of personnel in the field, making it easy to send assistance.

In addition, AMAG Technology is launching Symmetry CompleteView 20/20, a video management software solution designed to operate as a stand-alone system or integrate with the Symmetry platform that includes intrusion management, access control, identity management, visitor management, incident and case management, Command and Control software and mobile technology to deliver a complete end-to-end security solution.

Focusing on security and storage

The Manything Pro cloud solution is disrupting the professional security industry. See for yourself at ExCeL.

Seagate’s seventh-generation product, SkyHawk AI 14TB, features expanded durability and a new 14 TB capacity (the highest for a surveillance-optimised drive for security edge applications).

Also, Toshiba is launching the helium-sealed MG08 HDD series, which will be available from the second half of 2019.

IFSEC International is part of the Protection & Management Series of events which hosts over 1,600 leading suppliers showcasing 200,000 products, along with education sessions and networking for the security, fire, facilities, Health and Safety and service management industries.
