Last week, I attended the ISC West Security Conference and Exhibition in Las Vegas, NV for the third consecutive year. As this is one of the larger security exhibits of the year, it is always filled with much excitement by exhibitors and attendees alike. Companies are unveiling new technology and new solutions that have previously been under wraps. Of the many companies at the show, I did have a chance to sit down with a few that caught my eye.
BluBox- A unique solution that seems to be truly innovating the space. Blubox introduced a new “person reader” this year while at ISC. This solution which has 5 different versions provides a new innovation in Biometric readers. Blubox is very excited about this new solution that adds to an already impressive solution set.
Boon Edam– Boon Edam, with what seemed like an always packed booth, was show casing a variety of products filled with both familiar products as well as some new solutions that were being showcased for the first time. As I spoke to people there the prevailing thought was “what’s next?” What else can we do with this data? That is truly the next step for the industry and they are excited to lead the way into that market.
Elk Products– While focused on residential security, Elk Products prides itself on constantly innovating and bringing new products to the marketplace. While visiting with Elk, they were excited about several new solutions including their M1 platform control, panic lights and panic buttons. All of which are to be released this year.
Paxton– This company had one of the more interesting booths that I had the pleasure of visiting. They are focused on a separate trend in not only the security space, but also the technology world in general, the “Internet of Things”. Paxton is looking to expand their cloud based access control and incorporating integration across several platforms. Their motto of being “geniusly simple” Paxton showcased their cloud based access control system named Paxton Blu along with a new partnership with HID. Paxton seems poised to continue their growth in the US marketplace.
Overall, I came back from the 2016 ISC West conference energized to get back to work in this growing and exciting industry. Based on the impressive technology that I saw last week I feel this industry is poised for further growth and for some new exciting innovations.
The next trade show I plan on attending is the ASIS Seminar in Orlando, FL from September 12-15. If you are interested in having your company highlighted in my next blog, please let me know.
