Mark Tibbenham, Managing Director at GJD, comments “IFSEC 2014 was a huge success for GJD. The new Excel venue provided a more logical flow for visitors and created a better overall atmosphere and experience. GJD and Advanced LED Technology shared space in the Harmony Alliance Village, with a visitor meeting area kindly sponsored by Midwich Security. This enabled the Harmony Alliance companies including Texecom, TDSI and Elmdene to exchange technology integration concepts with our mutual customers; whilst affording them the opportunity to see the Best of British in a conveniently located central area”.
On show at IFSEC was the state-of-the-art Dual-Tech Anti Masking Curtain Detector – The ‘Pearl’. It utilises microwave and PIR sensors with integral anti-masking detection to create a curtain beam pattern which will aid to protect your property against crime. It can be positioned to look across windows, doors or the entire length of the house or property wall.
The Pearl detector has an optional pan and tilt bracket for ease of alignment and will warn when an intruder gets close to the window. Boundary overspill and hence nuisance alarms are minimised due to the narrow field of view of the protection beams. Applications include:- external windows, gates, roller doors and access points in narrow passageways.
GJD also showcased the new range of Clarius Plus Illuminators from the Group Company, Advanced LED Technology Ltd. The two companies are brilliantly matched in their complementary technologies. GJD has a strong brand and positioning in the global security market with its range of external motion detectors. Advanced LED Technology designs, develops and manufacturers a comprehensive, innovative range of infrared and white light LED illuminators predominantly used for the professional CCTV sector.
The new Clarius Plus Illuminators feature an interchangeable lens system that allows users to adjust the output angle of an illuminator on site to a precise and pre-defined angle. As standard the Clarius Plus kit includes interchangeable lenses to deliver angles of 10, 30, 60, 80 and 120 degrees out of the box providing enough flexibility to cover almost all applications.
Clarius Plus Illuminators achieve longer illumination distances and allow cameras to produce better images than traditional LED illuminators due to a diffused elliptical beam shape. This delivers more light where it is needed, minimizing light wastage and reducing overexposure of foreground objects.
The combination of detection and illumination is a strong market proposition. However the synergy between the two companies runs beyond the market potential, with both being committed to product innovation, quality and service.
Ana Maria Sagra-Smith, International Sales & Marketing Director at GJD comments “From a visitor perspective, IFSEC International gave GJD the opportunity to meet with a large cross-section of their international customers, from countries as diverse as Nigeria, Poland, Italy and Israel, with the new London Excel location proving a great draw to international visitors. Of particular interest to stand visitors were the new Clarius Plus infrared and white light illuminators, with interchangeable diffusor lenses, allowing five different illumination angles from 10 degrees to 120 degrees, in the same illuminator package”.
Greg Stuttle, Sales Director at GJD, mirrored Ana’s view “from a UK perspective IFSEC 2014 brings together the entire security buying chain. We experienced an increased number and quality of visitors this year and have planned many site visits and surveys as a result of the show. Visitors showed great interest in our FenceSecure™ & WallSecure™ systems, particularly linked to projects protecting solar farms and in our D-TECT Laser for the protection of heritage buildings”.
