One of the most highly anticipated and widely attended security conferences, the ASIS International Seminar and Exhibits Show was attended by 22,000 leading security professionals and innovators September 26-28 in Dallas, TX. With over 500 exhibitors on the show floor, technologies such as biometrics, facial recognition, automation and data-driven solutions were visible trends on display – providing an ideal platform for Johnson Controls to showcase its latest security developments for the first time since integrating with Tyco.
Throughout the conference, Johnson Controls demonstrated several intelligent security solutions, including emerging technology from JCI Open Innovation, a global innovation center in Tel Aviv launched to foster collaboration between the company, customers and cutting-edge startups to deliver effective solutions worldwide.
Stemming from this initiative, one of our proudest announcements during ASIS 2017 was the release of Magos Systems perimeter protection radar to the North American security market. While radars were traditionally only affordable for governments, militaries and highly budgeted entities, Johnson Controls Magos Systems is now available for a range of applications in facilities ranging from large oil & gas production sites, utility substations, campus environments and ports, to smaller sites such as data centers, warehouses, car lots and construction sites.
Packed with educational programs, keynote speakers and networking events, ASIS 2017 brought together the industry’s leading security professionals to exchange ideas, best practices and showcase the most innovative products and services on the market. We look forward to seeing everyone at ASIS 2018!
