- Women in Security Awards
The access security product manufacturer TDSi and its technology distributor Midwich are welcoming visitors to the Technology Exposed 2015 event from Wednesday, September 16 and Thursday 17, at Mercedes Benz World in Weybridge, Surrey. TDSi will be available to discuss the application of access control across a range of sectors, and the benefits of integrating these with other IT and business systems.
LeAnne Hill, Key Account Manager at TDSi said: “We are looking forward to meeting visitors and discussing the benefits of access control at this exciting venue in Surrey. Of particular interest to visitors will be the latest version of TDSi’s security management software, EXgarde 4.4 – which features an enhanced web portal meaning a security team can monitor a combination of security systems (including CCTV, access control and intruder alarms) from one place, on a device platform of choice.
“There is great demand in this market for installers and specifiers that can integrate physical security with wider IT systems. At TDSi we design and manufacture modern systems which are built to ensure business systems work together, complimented with expert technical assistance for installers. At Technology Exposed we will be showcasing the opportunities available for this growing market sector.”
With the advent of greater integration between IT and security systems, access control has become a key part of the security and IT services of any organisation, the firm adds. Being able to link access control to other security systems (such as CCTV and intruder alarms) has benefits for the management and control of any situation, according to the firm. There are other advantages too, such as using access control to administer accurate time and attendance recording. Access control can also ensure safety by recording the occupants within a facility, which is especially valuable in an emergency such as a fire, when evacuation and tracking the whereabouts of people is vital.
Options with access control authentication include flexible and highly affordable authentication cards to biometrics systems including fingerprint readers and even more advanced options such as facial recognition. TDSi says that the partnership with Midwich has grown rapidly since the two businesses became partners two years ago.
The event offers an opportunity to view technology. LeAnne added: “I would encourage anyone interested in learning more about how our technology can be used as part of a centralised business IT systems network; to visit Midwich Technology Exposed and discuss the options with our team.”
