This Week's News
When UAP went about developing the new Tradelocks cylinders, they decided to work in a different way. They wanted to offer a budget cylinder packed with security features usually found on the more expensive options. But Why?
David Jennings, MD of UAP, explains, "There are 2 main reasons. One is we believe that all cylinders should offer security features as the cylinders are designed to protect the public. Second, we believe that companies who promote security doors will increase their profits and sell more, and so it makes economic sense to offer a more secure cylinder."
Codelocks, innovative designer and manufacturer of keyless digital door and cabinet locks, today confirmed that work has started on its new UK headquarters; a purpose-built facility on Newbury's Greenham Business Park. The new facility was secured through Greenham Common Trust's design and build project - giving tenants the opportunity to move onto the park in a building that suits their specific occupational demands
Sometimes it's a comfort to know that you do get what you pay for. According to the Trading Standards website Lidl UK is recalling its 95879 Security Window Handle as there is the possibility the window can still be opened even though it has been locked.
If you're selling actual security window handles it might prove useful to know this. Shop based locksmiths might want to put a sign in their window. Either way, best to be aware and advise customers to source from a specialist and reliable source. You!
Leading supplier Securikey has extended the functionality offered by its extensive range of high security key cabinets, vaults and key filing systems, by incorporating the innovative closed loop feature across all steel door models as standard.
For organisations with a large access card issuance, it has to be said that the most difficult part of changing to a higher level of security is how the migration to the new Smart Card platform may occur without impeding access and business.
You’ve made the decision to upgrade access control security due to your older, insecure card technology being at risk to cloning and hacking. Installing the new smart readers is the easy part, but how do you migrate your staff to the new secure access credentials efficiently and seamlessly without any downtime for your organisation?
Leading manufacturer of industrial and embedded computers, Logic Supply (www.logicsupply.com), has released the first ever rugged mobile NVR certified by Milestone Systems, the global leader in open platform IP video management software, for use with their XProtect VMS platform.

We have heard that sadly, the prisoner custody officer who was attacked outside a court in central London has died. Lorraine Barwell, 54, was assaulted on Monday as she escorted a prisoner between Blackfriars Crown Court and a prison van.
Justice Secretary Michael Gove said Ms Barwell was "courageous and dedicated."
Roughly 20 percent of the 245 million surveillance cameras in the world are network cameras that transmit live, often unsecure, feeds online. Anyone with a little skill can access them. Andrew Hammerand did just that, turning a midwestern town's eye in the sky against it for The New Town. Through a simple Google search, Hammerand found a control panel for an unsecure network camera.
The device was perched on a cell tower in an unidentified town, and he commandeered it to make photos of the people going about their lives. It's a bit like the The Truman Show, with the stars of the show blissfully unaware they have an audience.Full Story
