Views from Day 1 of ISC West

What a crazy first day of ISC West 2018!!

The doors opened up right at 10 a.m. to numerous attendees looking for the most innovative security solutions the industry can offer and boy did they come to the right place!

I feel like I got to see a good portion of the show floor as I walked about 12,000 steps today from one end of the expo to the other visiting booths. The amount of excitement in the air was palpable as I made my way from booth to booth. There are so many new innovations, great partnerships and perfect integrations to talk about. Let’s get into it!

Aiphone Corporation, Booth 17101
Aiphone has a ton going on at their redesigned booth this year including their versatile multi-tenant video intercoms, emergency towers, wall boxes and more.

Razberi Tech, Booth 9077
Just think, what if just one of your cameras was unsecure and could be hacked? Why allow the risk?

These provide automated cybersecurity safeguards and health monitoring across the surveillance system – from cameras to the server.

FLIR has a giant booth right in the middle of the show floor and it seems that it is always busy! The amount of interest to thermal cameras, advanced analytics and enterprise solutions is outstanding and FLIR is ready to create a solution for any customer. Today, Security Today highlighted the value of thermal and onboard analytics for intrusion detection in a Facebook Live video The solution is really great for those who are looking for 24/7 security. FLIR takes thermal video and integrates in their analytics platform to create an all-around solution that is easy to use.

Open Options, Booth 3031
Open Options had a really great first day of the show! Their booth is one of the most interesting and important booths to visit at ISC West given the amount of time and effort they put into creating a flexible and easy to use solution for their customer with great attention to integrations and partnerships. If there is one thing you don’t want to miss at this ISC West it is a look at Open Option’s DNA Fusion platform and just how many companies they work with to create a solution that works best for the end user.

Salient Systems, Booth 29073
Salient’s booth was packed today.

The platform allows users to reduce the amount of time and resources required to view video and accelerate post-incident investigation with Salient’s Video Synopsis powered by BriefCam.

Louroe has quite the perfect spot on the show floor up by the front entrance, I bet they had a great view of the marching band that kicked things off in the morning!
