It's Monday and the Cygnus Security Group (SecurityInfoWatch.com, Security Technology & Design magazine, Security Dealer magazine, Locksmith Ledger magazine) is back at the offices after a mix of red-eye flights. With ISC West 2007 fresh in our minds, it was time to download the pictures off the memory cards and offer an ISC West 2007 photo dump. From surveillance cameras to innovative access control, we saw it all! Check out more ISC West 2007 coverage from SIW on our ISC West page.
