We caught up with Kevin Wine, who recently made the move from Lenel to ICx. The firm provides a broad array of security and threat detection solutions, designed to be integrated together. Here he is with the company's Fido detection unit for scanning liquids for chemical threats. The unbelievable thing is that this particular unit can detect liquid chemical threats through a sealed plastic bottle. That's right, you don't have to remove the cap (and potentially expose the environment) to test for liquid threats.
I wrote that ICx wants to integrate security. It may start with things like the Fido (or a cool card reader that tested for explosives residue), but the data can end up in the company's CommandSpace situationalÂ awareness system for linking video surveillance, sensor data and a lot more.
As the show ended, I ran into the staff of ScanSource Security Distribution, and got them together for a group shot. The beach theme had everyone smilingÂ in the booth (or maybe those smiles were because the show was over and they could all get home!).
