Siemens Demonstrates Innovation on Security and Safety for Cities
The Siemens Building Technologies Division will demonstrate numerous innovations in the area of security and fire safety at the leading international trade show for security, which takes place from September 25 to 28, 2012 in Essen, Germany. The products, solutions and services provided by Building Technologies cover a wide range of security requirements in cities. They include early and reliable fire detection, intelligent evacuation of people from buildings, and perimeter protection for critical infrastructures. “Safe and Secure in the City” is also the motto of the Siemens booth.
The Siemens Building Technologies Division will exhibit at Security 2012 as an innovative full-service provider that offers security, fire safety, energy efficiency and comfort in buildings and infrastructures throughout a building’s entire life cycle. Building Technologies focuses on protecting the existing investments of its customers. For this reason, the company enables its customers to gradually modernize existing installations. In addition, Siemens engineers have extensive expertise in services that cover the entire lifecycle of a building.
Security 2012 highlights in the area of fire safety…
The highlights of the product range that Building Technologies will demonstrate in Essen include the Swing wireless fire detection network (Siemens Wireless Next Generation). It combines a failsafe wireless network with patented ASA technology (Advanced Signal Analysis) which detects fires with the utmost reliability.
The new, rugged aspirating smoke detector (ASD) is an important addition to the fire safety portfolio. It is reliable even under harsh conditions such as in dusty environments. Building Technologies offers a Genuine Alarm Guarantee for this new detector.
…and in the area of security
In Essen, Building Technologies will debut an evacuation simulation software prototype. This solution can be used to simulate evacuations, for example in order to test the practicality of escape routes well in advance of an emergency situation. The software is able to analyze the movement of crowd flows in emergency situations, thus optimizing escape routes from buildings or stadiums.
Siveillance Command Connect is Building Technologies’ Unified Communications software designed for use in the control centers of intervention forces, fire and police departments as well as critical infrastructures such as airports and power plants. The software consolidates all communications coming from various sources associated with an emergency event and displays them on a clearly organized touch screen.
Companies requiring perimeter protection can learn about Building Technologies’ integrated service portfolio in Essen. These services range from risk analysis to combining the individual perimeter protection components in a central location, including round-the-clock operation and maintenance of the actual installation.
