Boon Edam, a global leader in security entrances and architectural revolving doors, announced that it continues to expand the resources devoted to its growing schedule of training programs. The recently-released 2017 training schedule includes all scheduled factory trainings, roadshow trainings, and technical workshops at Boon Edam’s technology and training center in Manhattan.

Due to popular demand after its inaugural year in 2016, the company has expanded its Roadshow training to six locations in 2017. Those locations are Toronto, Fredericksburg (VA), Seattle, St. Louis, Dallas, and Philadelphia. Roadshow Training courses include one session of Revolving Door Training (TQM, Crystal TQ, Boon Assist TQ, TQA, Tourlock security revolving door), followed by two Lifeline optical turnstile training sessions over two days.

Roadshow Training Sessions

Roadshow Trainings bring in-depth education direct to the partner’s region. Each session focuses on the installation, service, maintenance, and overall care of manual and automatic revolving doors, including the Tourlock security revolving door. A specially engineered, full-size revolving door with both automatic and manual parts is shipped to each training location where participants work together to assemble the door and experience hands-on training sessions. Lifeline and Tourlock training courses are also offered at Boon Edam’s NYC showroom location.

The company’s Technical Training
program mission is to enable its
valued partners to build positive,
long term relationships with
end user customers

Intensive, 3-day Factory trainings are held four times a year at Boon Edam’s US headquarters in Lillington, NC, where participants have hands-on access to the widest range of Boon Edam products.

Building Relationships With End Users

Zac Ellett, Technical Training Resources Manager, has been the driving force behind the Training Roadshows and the overall expansion of the company’s training programs. Boon Edam technical training sessions are offered at no cost. The only costs attendees incur are travel and hotel for Roadshow and Factory trainings. The company’s Technical Training program mission is to enable its valued partners to build positive, long term relationships with end user customers and operate more independently through the transfer of technical knowledge and certification.

“It’s essential that we provide our partners a wide array of low-cost options for technical training to better equip them to delight their customers,” said Ellett. “The response to our Roadshow training in 2016 was overwhelmingly positive, so we’ve expanded our number of locations and our overall schedule. We are really looking forward to supporting our partners even better in 2017.”

What Are The New Developments In Facial Recognition?
What Are The New Developments In Facial Recognition?

Facial recognition is a mature technology that continues to change and evolve. New innovations such as artificial intelligence (AI) are expanding facial recognition capabilities, even as privacy concerns, though often misguided, undermine wider acceptance in the market. We asked this week’s Expert Panel Roundtable: What are the new developments in facial recognition?

The Global Biometrics Trends Review
The Global Biometrics Trends Review

The global biometrics market has been recently developing rapidly, and this trend will continue shortly. If in 2018 its volume was estimated at $23.4 billion, according to the forecast of the analytical company BCC Research, the market size may increase to $71.6 billion with an average annual growth rate of 23.2 % by 2024. Fingerprint scanning, facial recognition, iris, vein, and voice technologies are expected to be implemented at the fastest pace. The analysis is based on the revenue indicators of key players depending on segments, including hardware, software, and integration. Biometric electronic documents Another analytical Agency, Acuity Research, estimates that the number of biometric electronic IDs will increase by about 3.5 billion electronic documents in the world. Moreover, more than half of the UN member States issue biometric passports. Government and private contracts of Canada, the United States, Belarus, Ukraine, Moldova, Lithuania, Hungary, Bangladesh, Senegal, and other countries are examples of implementation of programs for the transition to biometric electronic documents. Government organizations in various countries believe that biometrics is one of the most effective ways to identify refugees and those who cross the border. Now there are a lot of projects which are based on biometric technology. Biometric identification system Perhaps one of the most ambitious is the Aadhaar project being implemented in India Perhaps one of the most ambitious is the Aadhaar project being implemented in India. It is a biometric identification system that contains the data of more than a billion people. The database contains about 10 billion fingerprint templates, two billion iris templates, and a billion photos. There is another ambitious project at the Nairobi Jomo Kenyatta International Airport, where RecFaces company has implemented a passenger facial identification ready-made solution, that helps the security guards to receive notifications about airport visitors in just a few seconds and increase the efficiency of security services at least by 30%. The introduction of biometric identification of passengers aimed at increasing the level of airport security, as well as quickly obtaining information about the detection of wanted persons, stored in the long-term archive. Automated control gates As another example, face match is used at border checks to compare the portrait on a digitized biometric passport with the holder's face. In 2017, Thales company was responsible for supplying the new automated control gates for the system of Automated Fast Track Crossing at External Borders at Roissy Charles de Gaulle airport in Paris. This solution has been devised to facilitate evolution from fingerprint recognition to facial recognition This solution has been devised to facilitate evolution from fingerprint recognition to facial recognition during. Governmental systems, SmartCity, airports projects using identification technologies day by day become our reality and influence the growth of the biometrics market globally. Countries are studying the experience of each other and adopting it. Paperless payment technologies The global market of biometrics will shift all industries, starting from the transportation facilities especially airports, where a transition from traditional VMS and ACS to paperless biometric self-Boarding systems will be carried out. Sports facilities will see the development of paperless payment technologies at cash desks, and the banking sector — the payment systems with remote customer identification. HoReCa will transfer from staff time tracking systems to biometric payment systems, biometric check—in systems and the use of biometric identifiers. To sum up there are two most significant drivers of this growth are surveillance in the public sector and numerous other applications in diverse market segments.

What Are New Trends In Residential Security?
What Are New Trends In Residential Security?

Residential security and smart homes are rapidly changing facets of the larger physical security marketplace, driven by advances in consumer technology and concerns about rising crime rates. During the COVID-19 pandemic, many people spent more time at home and became more aware of the need for greater security. As workplaces opened back up, returning workers turned to technology to help them keep watch over their homes from afar. We asked this week’s Expert Panel Roundtable: What are the trends in residential security in 2021?
