From the President Jesse Weber...
I wanted to thank everyone, including the AFE members, for coming out and supporting our Intelligent Security Systems Live Demonstration event at the All Systems Installation facility in Golden Valley, MN. A special thanks to Dan Johnson from Genetec, Nick Johnson from Assa Abloy, and Stetson Nold from All Systems Installations for hosting, providing food and beverages for the attendees, and putting on great information packed presentations.
As our facilities and campuses grow, it is essential to have your finger on the pulse of the latest and greatest security technology to ensure the safety of our buildings and employee. Intelligent Security Systems is a hot topic amongst Facility Engineers across all industries. On Monday, Feb. 26th, 2018 All Systems Installations played host to the Intelligent Security Systems hands-on experience. All Systems Installations a Parsons Technologies company teamed up with Genetec and Assa Abloy for the presentation. Below are some highlights and pictures from the fantastic event!

Nick Johnson - Assa Abloy

Asia Abloy's products work with the Genetec systems to create a full turn-key security system and integration. The amount of information and security that their products hold and transfer are pretty incredible. Nick also dove into wireless door locking systems which is an up and coming product in many industries.

Stetson was able to give attendees a live look into their Genetec Security Software at their facility. The incredible features of this system wowed attendees especially the mobile technology and compatibility. Locking and unlocking doors remotely and showing live feeds across the network along with live video feeds from cell phones kept us all intrigued.
In summary, this was a great event, and the presenters shared a plethora of knowledge and a first-hand look at Intelligent Security Systems. If you were in attendance and didn't receive your CEU Certificate, please email us here and we will send you your certificate.
Our next event we will join Fred King, Mike Remington, Laurence Koch, and Gary Patrick at the Inspec 11th annual Half-Day Seminar on building and property maintenance. Historically this has been a well-attended event for multiple engineering groups and an opportunity to see a lot of familiar faces along with a chance to meet new people in the industry.
