Live From ISC West 2023: Day 1

ISC West 2023 in Las Vegas, Nevada, has officially begun! Make sure to keep an eye on Security Today’s ISCW Live 2023 page, as well as our associated Twitter accounts—@SecurToday and @CampusSecur—for the latest updates from the show floor at the Venetian Expo.

During this year’s Live From program, we’re happy to highlight the achievements of our five partners: NAPCO Security, Observint Technologies, Vistacom, RGB Spectrum, and DoorKing. I’ll be dropping by each of their booths a couple times per day to share news, product information, demonstrations, happy hour information, and more. Here’s a brief overview of their presence at the show.

NAPCO Security Technologies (Booth 12031) will be debuting a wide variety of products in commercial fire, access control, communications, intrusion, locking hardware, and video. Visitors to the booth will receive a free demo and a ticket to the Cocktail Reception & Giveaway, which will take place from 3–5 p.m. on Wednesday & Thursday both. Prizes include the FireLink XL FACP, AirAccess, StarLink MAX Fire, Prima, E-Access, and $500 in “Marks Locks Bucks.”

Observint Technologies’ Alibi Security brand (Booth 31075) is re-announcing its presence in the industry after a 10-year break from ISC West. They’ll be providing live demonstrations of technology solutions like camera-to-cloud video surveillance, cloud video backup with powerful AI analytics, cloud-based marketing tools & sales resources, and integrated access control, as well as offering giveaways and raffles. Demo stations will feature traditional video security; the Alibi Cloud VS; the Alibi Hybrid Cloud; Alibi Arsenal, a package of sales/marketing tools and resources; and integrated access control solutions in partnership with 3XLogic/Infinias.

Vistacom (Booth L28) is bringing SecureView, a command-center kit featuring an easily self-assembled video wall and display that comes preconfigured with advanced processing and touch panel control. The solution works best for small-to-medium organizations with potential budget constraints.

RGB Spectrum (Booth 7050) will be showcasing its visualization technology for SOCs, EOCs, and traffic management centers that feature video display and distribution solutions offering improved assessment, analysis, decision-making, and response capabilities. Its gallery of products and services includes the Galileo Video Wall Processor, the QuadView UHDx Multiviewer, and the XtendPoint KVM-over-IP Extender.

Lastly, DoorKing Inc (Booth 23015) is bringing its collection of access control systems, parking control products, vehicular gate operators, and vehicle barrier products. More specifically, the ProxPlus Secure card readers and cards offer a higher level of security than most 125KHx proximity card reader systems can offer. DoorKing’s unique card encryption technology allows the cards to only be read by a ProxPlus Secure reader. Meanwhile, the 2112 eVolve is a video telephone entry system designed primarily for residential applications. The cloud-based system can control up to three entry points and offers broadcast calling, which can cause up to four phones to ring when the call button is pushed.
