IFSEC International 2015 runs at ExCeL London between 16-18 June

IFSEC International 2015 runs at ExCeL London between 16-18 June

DORMA, COP Security, Seagate, SALTO Systems, Mitsubishi Electric and Nedap are exhibiting at IFSEC International 2015. The show at London’s ExCeL runs from Tuesday 16-Thursday 18 June. Brian Sims takes a look at what’s in store for end users.

On Stand F1250 at IFSEC International, DORMA will showcase a new access control system. MATRIX AIR represents a “significant leap forward” in terms of design and ease of use for access control.

With this latest addition to its product portfolio, DORMA can provide visitors to the exhibition with a multitude of door and access control solutions. 

The new MATRIX AIR access control range has been designed with “the thinnest profile on the market” to enhance the aesthetics of a modern interior design scheme. The range includes integrated lever handle fittings and electronic access cylinders available in black or white.

Suitable for individual doors or as part of a complete access control solution, MATRIX AIR can be designed for hassle-free implementation and use, particularly when deployed in conjunction with the MATRIX AIR app (which allows administrators to manage access rights).

DORMA’s stand will also showcase the new Automatic Folding Door, the DORMA FFT Flex Green. An ideal space-saving solution, this provides maximum clear opening widths of 2.4 metres and meets the requirements for emergency escape routes in line with Approved Document B.

The in-built locking mechanism is designed for easy integration with access control while the FFT Flex Green Automatic Folding Door also offers “excellent thermal separation efficiency” as well as “dynamic, smooth and quiet operation” to ensure minimal wear.

Also taking centre stage at the exhibition will be an Automatic Security Sliding Door, the DORMA ST Flex Secure. This has been designed for applications that require the highest levels of security to meet the increasing requirement for the convenience of an automatic sliding door but with additional anti-intruder and anti-vandalism protection.

Finally, DORMA will launch an entirely new concept which will show the future of access control – wherein authentication is conducted by the door itself without the need for traditional card or fob-based wall readers

Seagate’s surveillance solutions for end users 

Seagate is looking forward to bringing together the latest products and exclusive demonstrations of cutting-edge technology in the security space.

The company will feature the Surveillance HDD: a high quality and reliable surveillance drive that enhances data integrity, reduces the cost of servicing and improves overall lifetime in the field. Unlike other drives, surveillance drives like this one are built to record or write data the majority of the time (90%), playing it back or reading the data only as needed (10%).

Working closely with its key strategic partners Hikvision and Dahua, Seagate is finding this is the ideal balance that can dramatically improve a system’s overall return on investment by optimising video content recording and playback to quickly process data and provide faster performance.

Visit Stand F1210 to learn about:

*How the video surveillance landscape is evolving and why half of the world’s data is generated through video surveillance

*Key insights from a survey of 1,100 systems integrators and IT executives on video surveillance trends and forecasts for the future

*The importance of storage and using the right drive for optimal workload efficiency

Jump ahead with SALTO’s new product line-up

SALTO Systems is exhibiting on Stand G1800 where there’ll be a comprehensive new range of access control products and technologies offering “unrivalled usability, capability and flexibility”.

Consisting of both hardware and software, the new range builds on SALTO’s excellent reputation for the design and manufacture of wire-free and wireless access control systems used in over 90 countries by 14 million-plus individuals on a daily basis.

New JustIN technology brings real-life and flexibility to access control and makes it easy and secure to use smart phones as a part of an access control regime. The JustIN apps are two-fold. SALTO’S JustIN Mobile Key app allows users to use their BLE-enabled smart phone to securely receive their keys online, anytime and anywhere, and then access doors directly with their phone.

An alternative solution is the JustIN mSVN (mobile SALTO Virtual Network) that permits extending or changing access rights instantly and remotely Over The Air (OTA) using SALTO’s mSVN app for NFC-enabled handsets.

The new software product designated ProAccess SPACE is designed to build on the established SALTO ProAccess and HAMS software family. It’s a web-based software with an easy-to-install SQL database engine embedded inside. SPACE’s modular design has customer-specific activation codes at its centre, letting users choose and pay for just the features and functions they need now with the flexibility to upgrade accordingly at a later date as needs develop.

As it boasts a web-based interface, this means the system can be managed or operated from different workstations simultaneously without risk of database corruption. There’s no need to install the software in all operator PCs. Rather, simply install SALTO ProAccess SPACE Service in one server or computer then give access to other authorised computers inside the network.

SPACE works with Microsoft Explorer, Safari and Firefox and can be used with Windows tablets.

Joining these products is SALTO’s new range of wall readers and control units, both of which work with ProAccess SPACE. The wall reader follows the design aesthetic of the company’s latest products, and is another member of the XS4 2.0 product range. The new CU4000 control unit provides end users with the ability to control up to ten doors with just a single IP point.

To understand the full potential of SALTO’s mobile solutions and SPACE software, as well as the company’s new wall readers, controllers and GEO cylinders visit Stand G1800 for a live demo.
