The home is the fortress of man, and most citizens take care first and foremost of their personal safety. For these reasons, it is not surprising that the security technology market has soared in recent years, and is expected to total more than $ 150 billion by the end of 2021, with an emphasis on real-time accessible security.
In Israel, too, the trend is expanding. In view of the increase in burglary incidents in recent years in moshavim and localities around the country, Moked Amon, one of the leaders in Israel, is leading a technological security move, which includes the most innovative security measures that have just come into use, including an electronic tile that connects to existing flooring. A smartly designed electronic that is difficult to identify as a means of protection and a professional smoke generator that produces an active blockage against burglars.
The cooperative moshav of Kfar Daniel, in the Modi’in Regional Council, was the first to adopt Moked Amun’s innovative technological security model. Following the success, more moshavim in the area are showing interest in the prototype. Since its inception in the moshav, they have been able to identify and arrest several burglary squads in real time thus preventing or thwarting burglaries to homes in the moshav.
“With the development of various technologies, we have discovered that burglars identify where there are loopholes and the lack of security systems, and where they penetrate. Infinite open spaces that create access routes to localities are a major weakness in local security. Lilac Swede, CEO of HaMoked at Moked Amun, emphasizes: “These days, the company is leading an innovative technology move to the rural area where it suffers from multiple burglary incidents.
“The technology enables instant messaging with real-time alerts to several security entities simultaneously. Deployment of Moked Amun and patrol vehicles in the area and the local security system produces a power multiplier alongside the police. The future goes in the direction of artificial intelligence: smart cameras, smart sensors such as Stepping sensors, skimmers All the cameras connected to the network will become AI cameras with the help of advanced, simple and cheap BOX.
Moked Amon cooperates with the international Israeli company D-fence, which specializes in the development, planning, production, installation and marketing of electronic warning systems, peripheral and decorative protection systems, which integrate with all existing systems in the world.
This collaboration creates many and varied capabilities regarding the design and implementation of integrating different alert systems at diverse sites, according to the detailed needs of the planner. The company has a staff of elite units, specializing in security and defense. The team conducts a comprehensive risk survey in the preliminary stage, and then adjusts the system according to the needs of the end user.
Three of the developments created as a result of the collaboration are the unique treadmill system, which integrates with all types of fences and walls (blocks, metal, wood, plastic, glass, etc.). The system is made of a strap with a pressure gauge sensor, and is assembled over the physical structure of the fence or wall and allows immediate and accurate detection in any case of burglary by climbing.
Another system is an electronic tile, which can be installed under floor tiles of any type to provide extremely reliable security. The system provides true alerts at pedestrian crossings, stairs, entrances to rooms or offices and sensitive areas, access to safes and vaults, under decks, around swimming pools and the like. The system is made of floor tiles (metal, stone, porcelain, wood, vinyl, etc.), equipped with unique pressure gauge sensors, and can be installed on any surface and wherever it needs to be protected.
The company also offers the smartly designed electronic fence, which is based on innovative technology for detecting peripheral burglary. The system provides protection that includes custom fence panels and supporting columns with hidden and innovative pressure sensors. The system is specially designed to be non-invasive, but very effective against break-ins in open areas and outside buildings. The system is resistant to attempts at change and destruction and to weather changes.
In the activity of ABB Smart Building, the technology giant that operates in more than 100 countries around the world and in Israel, it deals with the question of how to harness technology to develop security systems in buildings, looking at elements of smart building and digital automation, which will increase security and comfort. For the minimum required the carbon signature of the structure through energy efficiency systems.
The company offers a range of innovative solutions, both for residential and office buildings, commercial, public buildings and the like. Thus, for example, ABB’s digital access control system enables full control of the entrance to the building, using a dedicated RFID identification card in encrypted and secure technology.
If the applicant is included in the list of entry permits, it is possible to define a series of actions that will take place automatically and simultaneously, for example: opening the front door, moving the curtain, turning on lighting in predefined areas, activating the air conditioning, heating or cooling system.
This is a smart solution for buildings where there is a lot of traffic, as it combines the need to manage the person entering the building and allow it to enter only the areas they are intended to reach and the need to automatically operate a series of systems for user convenience.
For example: a guest in a hotel staying in a room on the 8th floor, will only be allowed access to this floor. The system also includes a “logger” – a digital storage database where the entrances to the building are documented and historical data is accessed.
“Apart from the security aspect, data we collected show that buildings that incorporate smart systems consume between 20% and 40% less energy than buildings without such systems,” he explains. Ronen Aharon, ABB Israel CEO. “In the near future, we will see security systems based on biometric identification and face recognition.
The system will recognize us from a distance, even when we are walking for the entrance or are inside the vehicle at the entrance to the parking lot. The identification will activate a series of automatic operations, without human hand contact: from opening the parking lot gate, ordering the elevator to the desired floor and turning on the lighting and air conditioning in the room, to turning the computer on and off. “
Rescue in the app
Another important area in the security industry is the issue of communications. The more advanced the technology, the faster the response of rescue and security personnel to the call. One of the companies operating in the field is Carbyne, which develops technology for smart communication with emergency centers.
“The company was established out of the entrepreneur’s need. He fell victim to a robbery when he visited Tel Aviv, and could not tell the police his exact location. When you order a taxi, the app knows exactly where you are, but when you needed assistance, there was no such function,” the company president explains. Erez Tzur Chairman of the IATI Association and a member of the board of directors of the Innovation Network.
“The company sells its services around the world, and its specialty is emergency call technology – a platform that simplifies the work processes and introduces the media world to police officers, firefighters or rescue teams like the Red Star of David. So very conservative.
“The platform simplifies the workflows with the hotline and gives organizations involved in saving lives the ability to work in the cloud with the collaborations we do with large organizations like Google, Apple, Microsoft and AWS of Amazon,” he adds. “Together with them we connect between the service applicant and the assistance provider in an optimal way, without the need to install on the customer’s phone. We have patents to turn a voice call into a data with full privacy, so at the end of the call all information is deleted and not saved.
Zur explains that the operating system detects that the caller is dialing an emergency number, such as 911 in the US. At the time of the call, Google sends the location of the phone to the carbine, which forwards it to the police officer’s screen. A clear real-time snapshot.This connection is interrupted after service, and there is no danger of losing privacy.
Zur says the company has dealt with dozens of Corona-related projects, for example with the rescue and emergency services in New Orleans in the US, while police and doctors could not get close to applicants due to the plague.
“Our system has enabled thousands of doctors to work from home laptops, thanks to the technology that provides high security for government emergency services,” he adds. Zur explains that the company is always looking forward to how to develop more apps from the platform.
“We are always working on new models. We want to be able to understand from a conversation the emotional state of the caller and also the service provider, because he faces a lot of problems and it is important to measure his stress level. We also want to be able to collect data to give firefighters or ambulances targets. “For example, I can tell from the data where there is a high chance of an accident due to bad weather conditions or dangerous roads.”
The goal is to maximize collaborations with companies that know how to bring relevant data to emergency forces and connect them to the interface. Like skimmers that are connected to the CCTV network and provide security forces with the ability to get a quick picture of the arena or like the collaboration between the companies Carbine and Gett, which allows taxi drivers to report emergencies at the click of an emergency button added to the drivers app.
