Abloy wins sustainable environment award in Dubai

Dubai, U.A.E

Security expert Abloy has received the Gaia Award for sustainable building products at Big 5 in Dubai, winning the accolade for its range of low energy locks.

The Big 5 in Dubai is the largest construction event in the Middle East, connecting thousands of global suppliers and buyers of construction products. The Gaia Awards honour construction equipment and products that have truly integrated the concept of moving towards a more sustainable built environment.

Abloy low energy locks were showcased at the Assa Abloy stand, and visitors voting at the exhibition chose them for the Gaia Award 2016 for sustainable construction products.

The range of Abloy low energy locks blend high security with eco-friendliness. They boast an ultra low current consumption due to energy only being used when the lock status is changed. In addition to the energy and cost reductions, the low energy locks have a very wide voltage range and a number of usage possibilities.

Minna Sallinen, VP Product Management at Abloy Oy, said: “For Abloy, sustainability is a state of mind. It concerns all our processes – product development, choice of materials, health and safety of employees and customers, distribution and service”.

Aaron Yule, Managing Director of Abloy UK, added: “It’s fantastic to see Abloy products gaining international acclaim, and in an arena where sustainability is paramount.

“By selecting our low energy locks, specifiers can ensure that they are choosing a system that not only allows for swift and easy access and egress alongside an enhanced security provision, but they are also reducing the energy consumption and carbon footprint of a building too.”

Dahua Technology launches ePoE IP system

Dahua Technology Co., Ltd. is launching a system of extended Power over Ethernet (ePoE) devices including cameras, network switches and network recorders. Dahua ePoE IP system supports up to 800 metres between the ePoE camera and the ePoE network switch or ePoE NVR with an embedded switch. It overcomes the limitations of traditional Ethernet and POE (both restrict cable distances to around 100 metres (328 feet) between network ports) and eliminates the need for Ethernet extension devices or additional network switches.

The future is here - when surveillance meets AI

What will the world be like when surveillance meets AI (Analytics Intelligence)?

According to an IHS report from September 2016, security camera shipments continue to grow at 14.1% CAGR and are predicted to reach 190 million units in 2020, despite revenue growth having slowed to 8.1% CAGR. There are just too many cameras and video footage to be digested by human operators. Most security video footage is erased or over-written without being watched. Video Analytics (VA) Technology was once perceived as a solution to automate the utilisation of abundant video footage resources. By means of identifying and tagging the appearance of certain patterns in a video, the VA or AI system could perform search and run statistics on it.
