Smart Security Solutions

Securex Preview 2023 Products & Solutions

Stop by the Smart Security Solutions stand at Securex and discover the new rebranded Hi-Tech Security Solutions. Given the realities in the market we face today, effective security is no longer a silo run by one person who makes all the decisions. If you want your security to be effective, it must be holistic, covering cyber and physical security, risk management, facilities management (even if your facility is your house and even if it is in a complex/estate), and and also touches on health and safety (H&S).

Consider your perimeter. That used to be a 100% physical security operation, but today even the perimeter is connected, often to a remote control room, and the alerts can identify where the perimeter is under attack. With AI integrated into the perimeter solution, false alarms of branches or the cat jumping over the fence can automatically be ignored without reducing your security – which brings cybersecurity into the perimeter equation. Moreover, if your perimeter is not designed properly (or ‘reasonably’), and someone enters and hurts themselves, you could be liable under H&S; regulations.

Security therefore, is no longer about products, but efficacy, protecting you physically and digitally by means of integrated solutions that incorporate all of the above. Smart Security will continue to serve the security market as always, but we are expanding our scope to include all the aspects of what constitutes a complete and efficient solution. While technology, in terms of products, still make up the solutions, the value (what people buy) is in the solution and what it accomplishes; the megapixels or speed of authentication etc. are only part of the greater value – or return on investment – to the facility/home/estate/campus owner.
