ONVIF Joins Access Control Panel Discussion at TechSec Solutions 2018

SAN RAMON, Calif. – February 21, 2018. ONVIF®, the leading global standardization initiative for IP-based physical security products, announced today that it will be presenting at TechSec Solutions 2018, Feb. 26-27, 2018, as part of a panel discussion on trends in new technology in access control.

Bob Dolan, who sits on the ONVIF Technical Services Committee, will be one of four panelists discussing ‘Access Control Holds the Keys to New Tech.’ The panelists will examine how far access control has come, where it is headed, and how it will help to shape the future of the physical security industry. Dolan, who also serves as the Director of Technology, Security Solutions at Anixter, will provide perspective on how standards such as those provided by ONVIF can extend the possibilities of access control through interoperability with other technologies.

“Access control technology is poised to play a pivotal role in the future of our industry, as physical security continues to integrate with other technologies in a smart building environment,” said Per Björkdahl, Chairman of the ONVIF Steering Committee. “Bob will provide insight on the importance of standardization and how ONVIF specifications can assist in implementing access control in conjunction with new technologies, including data analytics, biometrics, IoT and building automation.”

Other panelists include Rob Martens of Allegion, Gary Larson of AMT and Peter Boriskin of ASSA ABLOY Americas. The panel will be moderated by Pierre Bourgeix, President of ESICONVERGENT.

The panel is scheduled for 2-3:15pm on Monday, February 26, at TechSec Solutions 2018, at the Delray Beach Marriott, Delray Beach, Fla. For more information, visit www.tecsechsol.com.
