ASSA ABLOY supplied 2c2 DIN nightlatches, half-euro cylinders and euro profile escutcheons
ASSA ABLOY supplied UNION Codehandle sets, providing effective key-less locking/unlocking for students’ interior doors

ASSA ABLOY UK has worked closely with Lincoln Security to provide one of the top performing schools in the country with effective access control solutions.

Priory Academy LSST - One of the top performing schools

The Priory Academy LSST, based in Lincolnshire, provides places for around 240 pupils in each year group and many of the school’s students gain places at Oxbridge colleges, UK Medical Schools and a range of other top universities. The academy also offers boarding facilities at Robert de Cheney House for sixth form students.

A representative from the school contacted Lincoln Security when their existing access control system began malfunctioning, leaving some users unable to operate doors and a small number of students not being able to gain access to their residential bedrooms.

Effective access control solution

Lincoln Security and UNION designed a locking arrangement that ensures doors unlock without the means of cables, auto lock when shut and allow free exit, as well as providing a mechanical override on a master system. Lincoln Security also ensured that all existing apertures made by the previous hardware were covered using bespoke cover plates, helping the school to maintain an aesthetically pleasing environment for the students.

ASSA ABLOY supplied UNION Codehandle sets, providing effective key-less locking/unlocking for the students’ interior doors, 2c2 DIN nightlatches, half-euro cylinders and euro profile escutcheons.

Quick and easy installation

Emily Greaves at Lincoln Security, said: “The Priory Academy LSST placed an order that required the installation of 62 sets of hardware to be fully completed within a very short time frame. Having worked with ASSA ABLOY in the past we knew they would be able to provide us with an excellent turn around of stock, enabling us to complete the job within the timescale.”

Martin Undrill, Site Manager at The Priory, said: “The Academy prides itself on providing secure, first-class accommodation for its boarders, so we were relieved that Lincoln Security and ASSA ABLOY were able to provide the service we needed quickly and efficiently, causing minimum disruption to both our students and staff.”

Simon Wilson, Regional Sales Manager for Security Solutions, said: “We have extensive experience when it comes to supplying the education sector, and the safety of children is always a priority. We are pleased that through working closely with Lincoln Security to see exactly what function the school wanted, we have been able to provide suitable products that enable the students to gain the access they need.”

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?
