Sesco launched the iWISE DT at Securex 2003, which was received very favourably by the industry. Sesco's MD, Douglas Luscombe, reports that the iWISE anti-cloak detector was the talk of the industry during the show, being one of the only new innovations on offer. Rokonet's new, patented technology called ACT has been incorporated into the iWISE DT motion detector.
Says Luscombe: "IWISE is able to catch even the most elusive intruders in the most extreme conditions. ACT will cope with any attempt by a burglar using camouflage techniques to conceal his IR radiation by utilising unique pattern-recognition algorithms within the microprocessor and switch the detector to trigger alarms based on detection from the microwave channel for a predetermined time only. It also overcomes PIR technology's limitation of poor detection sensitivity when the ambient temperature is close to body temperature. When this occurs, the detector automatically switches to single channel microwave triggering of alarms. ACT enables customers to benefit from both capabilities - dual technology's immunity to false alarms and the higher detection ability of the microwave channel."
Regarding the new venue for Securex, Luscombe states that the Sandton Convention Centre was a vast improvement on the last venue. "It is air-onditioned, has plenty of parking, is in walking distance of good restaurants and is generally of better quality."
He mentions that this year, the event attracted fewer exhibitors than in past years, a sure sign of the consolidation within the industry that has been going on for the past few years. However, that is not to say that it was any less successful than previously.
"We attracted a steady stream of visitors to our stand, from Gauteng and from other provinces. Thursday seemed to be the busiest day for all concerned, and in fact we were rushed off our feet with numerous interested clients. Many international visitors were present and several companies from neighbouring African countries attended, including Ghana, Zambia, Zimbabwe and Mozambique," says Douglas.
Representatives from the banking and insurance industries were very interested in the iWISE technology and Sesco is confident that the year 2003 will bode well for business.
