The Logic Supply team spent last week at ISC East 2015 in NYC. ISC East, the largest security industry tradeshow in the Northeast, brought together reps from more than 200 brands, accounting for every facet of modern security. For their part, Brett, Justin and Joe from Logic Supply were on hand to show off our selection of industrial and rugged Network Video Recorders (NVRs) and talk with attendees about the challenges, and solutions, to today’s advanced security installations.
The Growth of Mobile Security
It felt appropriate to be taking our security hardware line out on the road since one of the main focuses at this year’s ISC East show was mobile surveillance. We spoke to a number of integrators and solution providers who are working on large scale projects involving transportation security. From multi-zone surveillance systems on trains, to shipping professionals looking to keep a closer eye on their cargo fleet, the ability to record and access video feeds from in-vehicle deployments was a frequent topic of conversation at the Logic Supply booth.
The challenges in mobile surveillance range from reliable power to vibration resistance, and it takes a specialized system to be able to stand up to the rigors of in-vehicle deployments. Over the two days of ISC East we had the pleasure of answering a number of questions about the important role an industrial NVR serves in creating a reliable security network.
Security Concerns in Building Automation
We’ve seen a significant uptick in the building automation industry in recent months and that trend followed us to NYC, where security experts were on the lookout for hardware suited for access control and monitoring in a wide range of commercial and residential applications. There was a lot of interest in our range of industrial PCs which can accommodate a wide range of specialized I/O. We also had the chance to show off our new line of rugged Ethernet switches which allow users to connect additional cameras, sensors or peripherals to their existing hardware.
Video Management In Focus
While we saw plenty of camera companies on the show floor, the sheer number of video management software offerings may have been one of the bigger takeaways from our time at ISC East. We spoke with a number of software providers interested in offering their clients a more reliable NVR platform. We’ve partnered with Milestone Systems to create the XProtect Ready MX1000, their first rugged mobile NVR solution, and as the market expands to include even more challenging security environments, we look forward to working with other solution providers to better serve this growing industry.
