13 Jan Innovation at INTERSEC 2016
New features at Intersec 2016 include a Safety Design in Buildings Pavilion at the Fire & Rescue Section, and a Jobs and Careers Pavilion, bringing thousands of safety and security professionals in touch with the right career opportunities.
More than 1,200 exhibitors from 57 countries are set to participate at the annual showpiece event, which will also feature a dedicated series of industry conferences held in cooperation with the Dubai Police and Dubai Civil Defence.
The growing regional opportunities will be underlined by a new Smart Home section “The new Smart Home section at Intersec 2016 is a starting point to showcase security technologies that support smarter, safer, and more energy-efficient buildings in Dubai, the UAE, and the wider Middle East” added Pauwels.
Smart Home is the most recent addition to the five other core sections at Intersec 2016 of Commercial Security; Information Security; Fire & Rescue; Safety & Health; and Homeland Security & Policing.
Examples of Smart Home in security and safety include motion sensors, or fire and carbon monoxide detectors that are connected to the internet and can be controlled through a mobile phone. In the event of a break-in or fire, the sensors would send signals to the mobile phone, informing the owner to take appropriate action
