Bluetooth-enabled Card Reader
Camden Door Controls is introducing its CV-7600 as a mobile-ready based on RFID technology that com- bines Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) and contactless smart card technologies. It’s capable of reading data stored on a contactless smart card credential via high frequency. In addition, it can also read data from a mo- bile credential stored in a smartphone’s wallet app via BLE technology—without physical contact - and then pass the data obtained to the physical access control system. CV-7600 readers are also compatible with MI- FARE prox. cards and fobs. This feature allows system managers the ability to assign the best/preferred type of credential for each system user. The CV-7600 Blue- tooth-enabled mobile readers are an ideal choice for access control system users that would prefer to use their smartphone instead of a card or fob credential.
New Occupancy Monitoring System
Hanwha Techwin America, a global supplier of IP and analog video surveillance solutions has an- nounced a new occupancy monitoring system and mask detection analytic for its P series AI cameras. The license-free occupancy monitoring solution uses AI to accurately detect and count people entering and exiting premises from multiple entrances while dy- namically displaying the current occupancy level for customers and staff. Mask detection analytics detect if masks are worn or worn improperly and send out alerts including customizable audio messages di- rectly from the cameras. As businesses seek to safely re-open their doors following the easing of COVID-19 related restrictions, Hanwha Techwin is providing businesses and organizations these important tools for free to ensure customer and employee safety.

Explore the Role of Data Centers
B.I.G. Enterprises is showing its highlighting its role in providing security with its guard shacks at America’s data centers, which are among the most expensive construction projects and most expen- sive real estate transactions. Of greater impor- tance, the role data centers play in our economy is critical. Our nation would grind to a halt without them. Understanding this, B.I.G. Enterprises’ pre- fabricated Data Center Guard Stations are often the security anchor to many data centers’ multi- level security, equipped with perimeter fencing, anti-intrusion systems, dual authentication entry, biometric and color-coded key card security, and interior and exterior video surveillance.
