Mr. Alfredo Herrera Hernandez, Chief Executive Officer, Cognitec Systems, told us, "Face recognition applications are moving from analyzing still images to recognizing faces in real-time via video cameras. These applications bring new challenges to recognition engines. Video cameras usually produce images with lower resolution. Inside buildings and venues, people move quickly and in groups, they rarely look directly into the camera, or their faces are hidden by hats, objects, and other people. Therefore, we are concentrating our algorithm development on low-quality facial images, with faces turned sideways, up and down, or partially hidden, and on the speed of our recognition engine. Our latest algorithm B6 shows significant improvements in these areas."

Videx CyberLock
Videx CyberLock access control products help high-risk businesses lower their insurance premiums with the system's ability to track and control access throughout a facility.

Public facilities like churches, schools, and hospitals are more likely to face loss or property damage, due to the high volume of people coming and going. Additionally, key control is a big issue and it can be difficult to secure all areas of a facility. Insurance companies consider public facilities high-risk and it is reflected in increased premiums.

Installing an access control system like CyberLock to reduce the risk of theft and damages can reduce insurance premiums. Jim Reed, Grace Christian Center's Facility Manager, states, "Incorporating security has had a positive effect on our insurance costs. We invited the insurance company underwriters to visit us and see the security improvements we had completed. After looking at the church's alarmed security system, the CyberLock electronic locks on our doors and cabinets, the security cameras throughout our three buildings, and the internal control measures we had put in place, they lowered our insurance rates."

Mr. Joseph E. Hauhn, Chairman - Security Industry Association
Mr. Joseph E. Hauhn, Chief Technology Officer and Vice President of Industry Relations, ADT Security Services North America, Chairman - Security Industry Association, told us, "2011 was a year of significant change and progress for the organization. The first annual Security Week was held in New York City in November and included the Securing New Ground conference -- the first since SIA acquired SNG.

SIA Standards released Roadmap 2.0, a revised standards strategy that focuses on harmonization of industry standardization and specification initiatives. SIA Research launched the SNG Business Intelligence Service, an online portal providing SIA members and others with financial information on the Security Sector.

The Government Relations department made a significant impact by working to exempt manufacturers from proposed energy-efficiency legislation, which was signed by President Obama in January 2010. The legislation exempts electronic security companies from the Energy Independence and Security Act (EISA) of 2007. SIA was able to engage and convince the Department of Energy (DOE) and energy conservation stakeholders to provide an exemption from meeting a misguided energy efficiency requirement, ultimately resulting in considerable savings for SIA members."
