In about a monthÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s time from the writing of this editorial, many of us in the security industry will make our annual pilgrimage to the ASIS International Show, followed by a visit to ISC East.
These fall events make for a busy time in the security industry, but itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s much anticipated. ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s one of the few chances the industry gets to network with one another and to see the latest products firsthand.
After months of sitting in the office, I imagine that if youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re like me, youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re itching to get out. My favorite thing to do, besides talking with people, is to actually get to use the security products while visiting the show floor, whether itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s an iris scanner, access control system or door locking hardware.
In this monthÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s issue, weÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll provide you with a glimpse of some of the newestÃ‚Â products on the market.
Once again weÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve put together our traditional new product section to cover the products that will be at both ASIS and ISC East.
This issue is a teaser, of sorts. It provides products from both events. This up-close look is not just for those attending these tradeshows, but for people who just canÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t find the time to make it to these fall events.
This monthÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s issue will be followed by our October issue, which will be dedicated to products from ASIS International, while ISC EastÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s new product issue comes out in November.
When all is said and done, weÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll have covered approximately 150 products in a span of three months. Phew!
While these sections wonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t provide the same, firsthand experience as attending the actual tradeshow and trying out the product for yourself, they should give you a better sense of not just what is on the market today, but whatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s in store for the future.
Now IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m ready to hit that show floor!
