Security Industry Association Announces Winners of the 2020 SIA New  Product Showcase Awards | #TpromoCom #SIA #Security #Awards | Leica Geosystems took the top honors in SIA’s annual awards program recognizing innovative security products in partnership with ISC West.

The Security Industry Association (SIA) has announced the 2020 winners of the SIA New Product Showcase Awards, the flagship awards program in partnership with ISC West recognizing innovative security products, services and solutions. Top among the winners – who were recognized July 9 during a virtual awards show – was Leica Geosystems, part of Hexagon, receiving the 2020 Best New Product Award.

Since its inception in 1979, the SIA New Product Showcase has been the security industry’s premier product awards program. New products are reviewed by a panel of judges with extensive industry experience, and in 2020, following significant deliberations, the 30 judges presented awards for technologies covering 23 product and service categories.

Leica Geosystems, part of Hexagon, received the Best New Product honor for its 3D Surveillance With Leica BLK247, submitted in the Emerging Technologies category.

Call TpromoCom for web design and content (image)The 3D Surveillance With Leica BLK247 is “a first-of-its-kind reality capture sensor for building security and operations,” said Leica Geosystems. “It is the latest product in the company’s BLK product line, a collection of reality capture, scanning and photogrammetry hardware and software. The BLK247 offers continuous, 24/7 LiDAR-based 3D monitoring and change detection within spaces. It does this using LiDAR, 3D digital fencing and continuous scanning to monitor buildings and spaces 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.”

The prestigious Judges’ Choice Award was presented to Suprema Inc. for the Airfob Patch product, submitted in the Access Control Devices & Peripherals Hardware – Wireless category.

“Airfob Patch is the world’s first mobile-to-RF-card signal translator, enabling mobile phones to communicate with the existing RF card readers,” said Suprema Inc. “Wire, batteries nor construction is required for installation. Airfob Patch charges itself by using the existing RF field signals transmitted from the RF reader. It transforms the RF fields into its own power source.”

Additionally, John Spooner – executive vice president at Alarm Detection Systems and an active volunteer judge in the SIA New Product Showcase program – received the New Product Showcase Merit Award, which recognizes an individual or company who, through their support of the New Product Showcase, demonstrates a commitment to the vision and mission of the program, contributes to its success and promotes the advancement of SIA and the security industry overall.

“SIA is proud to present John Spooner with the 2020 SIA New Product Showcase Merit Award; John has not missed a single SIA New Product Showcase event since he began as an active volunteer judge in the program 17 years ago,” said Chris Grniet, chair of the SIA New Product Showcase Committee. “He has always been a fair and honest participant and has never hesitated to jump in and help whenever we need him. He has been exemplary in his commitment, participation and ability to help the group reach consensus.”

“Following hours of panel-driven judging and technology demonstrations, SIA is thrilled to recognize the 2020 winners of the SIA New Product Showcase Awards for their innovative products, services and contributions representing the best new offerings in the market,” said SIA CEO Don Erickson. “SIA applauds all the honorees who received awards in 2020 and particularly Leica Geosystems and Suprema Inc. for standing out in this highly competitive field of entrants to earn the Best New Product and Judges’ Choice distinctions. Additionally, we congratulate John Spooner on receiving the 2020 New Product Showcase Merit Award in recognition of his many valuable contributions to this premier program.”

Increasing RMR Through Technology and Intelligence

Code+ Centers of Design Excellence (image)The monitoring of intrusion alarm systems, closed circuit television, access control, fire alarms is the traditional way to create steady cash flow.

Traditional Monitoring

Alarm signal is transmitted to operator screen with instructions on if, who, and when to call

Traditional Monitoring (image)
Traditional Monitoring: $60 per month average.
Interactive Video Monitoring (IVM)

Video image and alert is sent to operator who diagnosis the event responds accordingly

Interactive Video Monitoring (image)
Interactive video monitoring: $750 per month average.

How to be successful using IVM?

  • Select the correct monitoring center. Not all monitoring centers are created equal when it comes to IVM.
  • Ensure the monitoring center has line item pricing. Pricing only by number of cameras or events is a huge “red flag”
  • Voice Down Communication takes IVM to the next level of behavior management.
  • End user involvement. Finding out the exact scope of wants and what they are paying for guards is paramount.

Lets face it. RMR Value at time of sale is the primary asset dealers have!!

If you’re a security integrator or an alarm dealer, you can add considerably to the RMR you’re making every month now by adding Interactive Video Monitoring to your list of
services you provide.

The Integration of Security And IoT

Verdafero offers an IoT and Utilities monitoring service (image)

The Integration of Security And IoT | #Verdafero #Security #IoT #Monitoring |  Security has many faces, whether it’s the hardened, Grade 1 locks on all the perimeter man doors throughout a building, electronic access control, video surveillance cameras, fire detection equipment, or the IoT devices that monitors a variety of critical services, such as  temperature, humidity, air flow, pressure, or the integrity and quality of any one of several utilities that clients depend on.

If there was ever a time when integration between the various facets of security, life safety, and general commercial Internet of Things (IoT) might occur, it’s now.

Monitoring Electric Utility usage is one of many applications for Verdafero's Cloud-based, AI-driven service (image)The Central Monitoring Station (CMS) that Security Integrators and Alarm Dealers use is equipped to monitor the physical security elements of a facility, but not necessarily IoT devices that output analog data. Not only that, but traditional CMS’ are not readily capable of analyzing multiple streams of Big Data (BD) for anomalies that might occur. But there is a solution to this problem that is capable of including the positive attributes of a CMS.

In the area of Utility BD, “Verdafero’s Utility and IoT monitoring and analytics platform uses Artificial Intelligence (AI) to capture, analyze, report and predict variable, broad-based utility expense information found from many data sources,” says Alastair Hood, Ph.D. and CEO of Verdafero.

Verdafero’s Cloud-based processing center will utilize  your favorite CMS’ API (Application Programming Interface), thus allowing your CMS to act on alerts issued by the AI platform.

According to Hood, “Using Verdafero, security service providers can now actively analyze and compare the performance of similar client properties and benchmark them  against other properties within their portfolio to help clients better  understand the opportunities to reduce overhead expenses.”

67% of US broadband households own and use at least one internet-connected video device

67% of US broadband households own and use at least one internet-connected video device | #TpromoCom #Parks #Broadband #Internet | Industry report examines device and technology platform strategies for large players Amazon, Apple, Comcast, Google, Roku, Samsung, and Sony

New research from Parks Associates finds 67% of US broadband households own and use at least one internet-connected video device, either a smart TV, streaming media player, internet-connected gaming console, or connected PVR/DVR. The firm’s Connected Entertainment Ecosystems: Competition & Cooperation notes that these devices get plenty of use but also have lengthening replacement cycles, which is driving manufacturers to explore new strategies, including software and service offerings, exclusive hardware-content bundles, and open ecosystems. The challenges and thin margins in the CE are also narrowing the field of competitors.

“The connected entertainment space is moving towards a smartphone model, in which a handful of platform players control the operating system, UX, and consumer access to services and features,” said Kristen Hanich, Senior Analyst, Parks Associates. “These platform players stand to win big as consumers increasingly choose to sign up for their OTT service subscriptions through storefronts like Amazon Prime Video Channels, Apple TV Channels, or Roku Channel Premium Subscriptions.”

Connected Entertainment Ecosystems: Competition & Cooperation profiles the product ecosystems and market strategies for Amazon, Apple, Comcast, Google, Roku, Samsung, and Sony. It analyzes benefits and drawbacks of closed versus open device and app ecosystems and offers insights on consumer expectations for their devices as content consumption shifts toward streaming service options.

“Major changes in content distribution and consumption are affecting the CE market, notably the rise of OTT services and decline in pay-TV subscriptions,” Hanich said. “The increasing fragmentation in the content services market means there’s no single path to reach consumers. These factors, along with the consumer demand to access their content when and where they are, are pushing the connected entertainment market slowly but steadily in favor of open ecosystems where consumers can access most, if not all, of the services they want on the device they want regardless of which platform they decide to use.”

The report notes that in 2019 alone, 6.4 million US consumers cut the cord on their traditional pay-TV service, transitioning to OTT streaming and/or broadcast television, both of which continue to rise in adoption and usage.

41% of US broadband households concerned about hackers accessing their devices

Parks Associates, Parks,

41% of US broadband households concerned about hackers accessing their devices | #TpromoCom #Parks #Hackers #CyberSecurity | Parks Associates and PSA Certified highlight importance of device security and standard frameworks in industry webinar 

Parks Associates research reveals 41% of US broadband households are concerned about hackers getting access to their devices. With concerns higher among households without smart home devices, these fears could contribute to reluctance among consumers to purchase these devices. The international research firm will address the importance of establishing device security standards and certifications in the upcoming webinar “IoT Security: Establishing Frameworks to Protect Consumers,” cohosted with PSA Certified.

The webinar, hosted Tuesday, May 19, 11 AM ET / 10 AM CT / 5 PM CET, will address the value of industry standards and certifications in creating product differentiation, reducing risks, and building consumer trust.

“Connected devices have proven valuable in extending and enhancing many elements of everyday life, including work-at-home, education, entertainment, and health and wellness,” said Patrice Samuels, Senior Analyst, Parks Associates. “But the expansion of smart home adoption and online activity also increases consumers’ vulnerability to hackers and cybercriminals. Parks Associates research has repeatedly found safety and security to be fundamental to consumers, so all players would benefit from industry-level solutions that can deliver on the security of connected devices in the home.”

Moderated by Patrice Samuels, Senior Analyst, Parks Associates, this webinar includes insights from the following panelists:

  • Anurag Gupta, Business Development Director of Platform Security Architecture, Arm
  • Carlos Serratos, Senior Director of Strategy, Brightsight
  • Hector Tejero, IoT Solutions Architect, ARROW Electronics

Parks Associates’ 360 View: Supporting the Connected Consumer tracked the steady increase of DIY setup and configuration among smart home and connected CE products:

  • 64% of smart home device owners report setting up at least one smart home device themselves
  • Approximately 90% of smart light bulb and smart plug owners set up these devices themselves
  • 51% of smart home owners who set up their own devices experienced at least one type of problem when setting up their device

Auditor blocks solar developer accounts over missing deposits (image)

pv-magazine — Auditor blocks solar developer accounts over missing deposits | #TpromoCom #GreenEnergy #SolarPower #Fraud | State-owned solar company Panda Green will miss Friday’s deadline for publishing its audited figures for last year and new owners Beijing Energy have announced the formation of a committee to investigate the payment of $144 million in deposits to secure development rights for projects which never happened.

The astonishing oversight which appears set to cost Chinese solar developer Panda Green a thumping RMB1,022 million (US$144 million) – and which was highlighted by pv magazine last month – will see the company auditor refuse to sign off the 2019 accounts by the deadline stipulated by the Hong Kong exchange where the company is listed.
