Day one of ASIS 2016 featured a full slate of activity, and an exhibition floor brimming with visitors. There are a number of new products and features worth mentioning, and here are just a few of the ones that I saw:

Salient Systems showcased a number of new products, including the PowerProtect line of Red Line integrated PoE NVRs. These NVRs allow for a simultaneous operation as a server, switch and client, as well as a 25% processing performance increase.

The View Security Differently concept provides customers with information by combining VMS, CSIM and social media platforms like Twitter and Facebook.

Over at the Open Options booth, The DNA Fusion Access Control Software suite was on display. DNA Fusion delivers a scalable access control solution for organizations of any size by taking full advantage of the distributed network architecture and open platform control panels.

Protection 1 made its first appearance with ADT since the two companies’ integration in May 2016. The company announced the expansion of its Network Operation Center (NOC), doubling its capacity and support for security network applications and monitoring for enterprise and national account customers.

The Protection 1 booth is featuring a number of cool initiatives, like Pokémon Go lures and a drone give away as well as a custom-made comic book.

Vicon Industries is showing off its new Valerus advanced video management software, a browser-based, easy-to-use interface designed with simplicity in mind. Demos were delivered throughout the day that explained how the thin client architecture and central licensing offered future-proof solutions by leveraging cloud computing.

Alert Enterprise was also using demos to highlight its Guardian Physical Enterprise solution. To learn more about this solution, click here.
