They expect their schools, workplaces and ticketed venues to ensure social distancing and would abandon their plans rather than enter a facility with crowded security lines, according to insights released by Evolv Technology based on a survey conducted by The Harris Poll. 

The survey was conducted online with more than 1,500 American adults who have a personal stake in the security screening experience: consumers who attended ticketed events in 2019 (n=506), parents of school-aged children (n=712), and workers at large factories, warehouses and distribution centers (n=504).

ASSA ABLOY and Allegion discuss #COVID19-related #technology options and strategies at virtual event

ASSA ABLOY and Allegion discuss #COVID19-related #technology options and strategies at virtual event | #TpromoCom | The future is touchless – that was the message from security industry heavyweights ASSA ABLOY and Allegion at the recent virtual ISC West show [last November]. (Will Christensen) https://bit.ly/2OIyxWz

Representatives of both companies delivered presentations during the event that covered much of the same ground with a few slight differences; however, the big takeaway is that touchless door openings will be a major part of each company’s strategy for the foreseeable future.

Noting how the COVID-19 pandemic has led more than 60 percent of the U.S. and Canadian workforce to work from home, “it demands a great amount of creativity and innovation to navigate this crisis,” said Mark Duato, executive vice president of Aftermarket Solutions for ASSA ABLOY Door Security Solutions.

Matrix Integrator Empowers Security Integration Companies with a New Way of Selling CCTV



Matrix Integrator Empowers Security Integration Companies with a New Way of Selling CCTV | #TpromoCom #DICE #Integrators | For the first time, integrators can directly provide end users with automatic and managed interactive video monitoring services https://bit.ly/3bgNp69

 

The New DICE Corporation is empowering security integration companies with Matrix Integrator, a cloud-based video event monitoring, surveillance, and alarm notification suite for any video system, anywhere, and at any time. For the first time, integrators can directly provide end users with automatic and managed interactive video monitoring services while controlling their business operations at the same time.  

 

“In the past, DICE has been perceived solely as an automation software company for monitoring stations,” explained Avi Lupo, DICE Corporation Co-President. “However, the security industry has evolved from just a basic alarm panel and a central station providing simple alarm services. With the New DICE’s Matrix Integrator and our new technologies, we are offering integration companies, and the industry as a whole, a new way of doing business.” 

 

Matrix Integrator is a complete platform with services such as video verification, remote guarding, virtual guard tours, business management and virtual doorman – all using advanced video analytics, artificial intelligence, and cloud recording of events. This includes object detection and human behavior analysis with real time notification. 

 

Flexible, scalable, and easy to implement and use, Matrix Integrator not only offers a new way of selling CCTV but also provides additional revenue (RMR) every month. Using DICE’s exclusive hybrid technology, integrators can bridge to a professional central monitoring station of their choice at any time. 

 

Many event applications can go directly to an end user’s cell phone and/or to cloud video recording. Integration companies can also choose to bridge to a professional monitoring station of their choice to monitor accounts at night, weekends, or 24/7.  

 

“Central stations are not required but it is an option. Some services are managed and require operators to handle them, while others are automatic and can be provided without staff,” added Lupo. “So central stations are providing managed services for the integrator, but the technology and control is in the hands of the integration company.”  

 

All Software as a Service (SaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS), and Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) technology, including receivers, reside in the cloud at DICE’s secure UL/ULC data center.  

 

New technologies allow DICE to move the “smart” from the camera to the cloud. Any camera or NVR (regardless of the manufacturer) can provide analytics without the need to invest in expensive new technology. The unified platform also provides controls for all IP cameras, PTZs, and field devices, as well as one-click camera views. Plus, because the platform is on the cloud, there are automatic version updates. 

 

The bottom line is that there is minimal upfront cost for both integrators and end users in installing a new system. In most cases, the integrator has no need to return to the site to upgrade and provide these new interactive services. 

   

“The world is changing and so is the industry,” stated Lupo. “Matrix Integrator is a new, innovative way of selling CCTV with many advantages. This is an opportunity for integrators to benefit from a competitive edge and change before they have to.”
