Intersec 2024 was held in Dubai, a great exhibition that shows the latest products, trends and developments in the security industry. This gathering of industry experts, partners and end users provided valuable insights into the evolving landscape of security solutions. In this blog, we will delve into the key takeaways from the event, highlighting the emerging trends that are shaping the future of security.
Ahmed Al Jarouf, our Business Development Manager in Dubai, presents four key takeaways drawn from Intersec Dubai:
1. Increasing interest in Digital ID
One of the standout observations from the forum was the increasing interest in Digital ID solutions. It is evident that both end users and partners are becoming more receptive to the idea of having their secure IDs stored in the cloud. This shift represents a significant advancement in security technology, as it allows for greater flexibility, accessibility, and scalability. The cloud-based approach simplifies identity management and enhances security by providing a centralized platform for secure credential storage and authentication.
2. RFID readers remain the gold standard
While there is a growing interest in new technologies, (long-range) RFID readers continue to maintain their position as the gold standard for reliable gate access control. In Dubai, it was evident that the use of long-range RFID readers for gate access is no longer considered a luxury but has become a standard practice. This is because RFID technology offers proven reliability and security, making it indispensable for access control in various applications.
3. ANPR cameras gain momentum
Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) cameras for gate access are gaining significant momentum in Dubai. ANPR technology enables quick and accurate identification of vehicles by capturing and recognizing license plate information. While the adoption of ANPR cameras is on the rise, it is important to note that there is no radical shift away from the use of RFID long-range readers in the foreseeable future. Instead, ANPR cameras are seen as a complementary solution that enhances security and convenience.
4. QR codes for visitor access
A noticeable shift in visitor access control methods was visible during the exhibition, with the widespread adoption of QR codes. QR codes are now becoming the standard for managing visitor access, replacing manual and time-consuming processes. This technology streamlines the visitor registration process, enhances security, and provides a seamless experience for both hosts and visitors. The convenience and efficiency of QR code-based access control solutions are driving their adoption across various industries.
Valuable event for sharing insights and knowledge
In summary, Intersec Dubai served as a valuable platform for sharing insights and knowledge about the evolving security landscape. The key takeaways underscored the industry’s growing interest in Digital ID, the continued reliance on RFID readers for gate access control, the increasing popularity of ANPR cameras, and the adoption of QR codes for visitor access. These trends reflect the ongoing commitment to enhancing security, convenience, and efficiency in access control solutions. As the industry continues to evolve, staying updated with these developments is essential for organizations looking to maintain a secure and user-friendly environment.
