Security in Practice at The Security Event Birmingham

Jan Meiswinkel, CEO at Advancis, was part of The Security in Practice Theatre at The Security Event in Birmingham. The experts in discussion were John Davies (TDSI), Andrew Sieradzki (Buro Happold) as well as Neil Bennett (Partner-Farrells). The panel analysed how to add value with integrated security from concept to commission and explored the impact of technology developments alongside effective assessment of security requirements.

Advancis, manufacturer of the vendor-neutral PSIM platform WinGuard, is aware that there are always two groups to be considered: on the one hand, there is the end customer, but on the other hand also the integrator/installer. BIM (Building Information Modeling) is a good keyword, as it can be used for detailed planning before implementation of a PSIM system, so that all the subsystem installations and their processes are well-prepared during the planning phase and can then, in the operation phase, be automatically taken over into the PSIM platform, e.g. by autoprojection. The integrator is as important as the end user of the PSIM system. Currently, the integration processes take a lot of time and the staff realising them has to be very well-trained. Target is to simplify and thus shorten the integration time by automatising more and more steps of the installation process.

The integration of lots of sensors and the related data management and evaluation for predictable events is a challenge, but also a chance to improve processes and performance. KPIs can be set and adapted individually for each customer. Furthermore, the collected data can also be used for predictive maintenance and to predict incidents. It is required to inform and train users on the collection, maintenance and evaluation of these data and how they can use it to optimise their internal processes.

Presentation of the PROTECTOR & WIK Award Silver in the category PSIM

The readers of the magazine PROTECTOR and the users of the online portal sicherheit.info made their decision: Second winner in the category PSIM is the functional module “Control Operations” by Advancis. It is a concept for reliable control management of security-technology systems (arm/disarm, disablements/re-enablements, revision on/off, etc.). If, for example, fire detectors are not disabled during the execution of welding works, false alarms might be triggered. If the re-enablement after completion of works is forgotten, the non-detection of a real fire would have drastic impact.

Therefore, the complete process should be digitalized with the help of the module. Via web forms, the disablement and re-enablement can be requested. Furthermore, all involved parties have online access anytime to the control operations planning or the current detector status. In the defined period, the target status will be monitored, so that third parties cannot perform any unnoticed changes directly at the systems.

The module serves for reduction of false alarms and for the secure detection of hazardous situations, so that also costs and resources for unnecessary operations will be saved. An effective process chain is the result. Due to the reduced communication and the digitalized processes, the personnel in the control center can concentrate on important alarms and emergencies.

On 27 June 2018, Jan Meiswinkel, CEO of Advancis, received the award personally at the SicherheitsExpo trade fair in Munich. We would like to thank you very much for your vote!
