Flying in from London, UK this week is Tom Barnard, Managing Director of Quatro Electronics. He will be speaking at the ASIS 2013 Seminar in Chicago on Tuesday 24th September on the challenges that remote sites carry in terms of risk, and the protection solutions available for such sites.
Quatro Electronics is the renowned provider of world-class security for challenging, temporary and difficult environments, with bases in Chicago and London. Mr Barnard will review the latest technologies in the Solutions Theater at 11.00am.
Previously IT Director of Mercedes Benz, Tom Barnard is passionate about innovation and in the pursuit of continuous improvement is never afraid to challenge the status quo. He has been the driving force behind the launch of Quatro’s many innovative and market leading products, and is part of the Quatro team that is launching three innovative products this week at ASIS.
“I am going to talk about the special requirements for protecting and securing remote sites, such as utility exchanges.” says Tom. “They often have a location and site layout context that is unique, and requires a specialist approach to solving those challenges. Working with our customers we have developed products that are specifically designed around remote sites.”
Three products – Quatro SmartTower, SmartQube and SmartAlarm Silver – offer revolutionary new battery powered, wireless, video verified CCTV solutions.
The Quatro SmartTower and SmartQube are specifically designed to provide HD video verified CCTV in locations with no power and no landline communications.
The SmartTower is a unique standalone solution that is quick and easy to install. The top of the SmartTower houses a high-end wireless PTZ camera that gives HD resolution, on-board storage capacity of up to 64GB and which is linked to a state-of-the-art alarm. As it can be powered by AC power, wind, solar or hydrogen fuel cell, the SmartTower can operate for up to three months continuously without recharging, making it ideal for remote sites.
The SmartQube has similar technology and comes in a lightweight compact format that allows it to be fixed to a pole, scaffold, wall or other upright structure. Like the SmartTower, the SmartQube works in zero light conditions and has an infra-red function, so that it can also be used in covert situations.
The SmartAlarm Silver is the third new addition to the US market to be showcased at ASIS. It is a fully self- contained, battery powered wireless monitoring system with video verification capabilities. What makes it different is that it is encased in polycarbonate with an optional integral CCTV camera, making it a lightweight and compact remote alarming solution, ideal for a wide variety of situations and at a lower cost than the SmartAlarm Gold.
ASIS delegates can see the SmartTower, SmartQube and SmartAlarms by visiting booth 3633, next to the ASIS Connection Lounge, or by attending the Quatro presentation at the Solutions Theater on 24 September at 11am.
Quatro are offering a free demo alarm system worth up to $1500 to those joining the Dealer Partner Program. More details can be found on the website at http://www.quatroelectronics.com/partner-with-quatro/
