2013 Electronic Security Expo to Focus on Security Robotics
NASHVILLE, Tenn. --(Business Wire)--
Security Expo (ESX) announced today that it will produce new media
and event opportunities to help connect makers and distributors of
security robots and robotics platforms with security systems
integrators, monitoring companies and security industry OEMs. As
robotics increase in functionality, reliability, and cloud connectivity
- and decrease in cost - their potential application for typical
guarding and detection tasks is on the rise.
The initiative, being termed "Security Robotics: Vision 2013," will
define, describe and showcase that potential, helping OEMs and channel
partners connect, speeding up development and adoption of security
robotics solutions. EH's Robotics Trends Group, operators of the RoboticsTrends.com
and RoboticsBusinessReview.com websites and producers of the
RoboBusiness Leadership Summit, will assist in outreach for the program.
"Security Robotics: Vision 2013" is a three-part program, including:
Research. In February, ESX-producer AE Ventures' research division, AE
Analytics, will field an online survey to better delineate interest in
security robotics at all levels in the security supply chain from OEMs
to integration and monitoring companies to commercial end-users.
Event. ESX 2013 will feature a Security Robotics Tech Zone within its
exhibits, June 19-20, 2013 in Nashville, TN. Promoted as a special
feature of ESX, the Zone will offer a cost-effective opportunity to
demonstrate robots and robotics to the ESX audience of security
integration and monitoring companies and security OEMs.
Digital Media. In July, ESX will produce a webinar on security robotics
and distribute a digital special report on security robotics. The
webinar and report will be promoted to 20,000+ security professionals in
the ESX industry database, plus 20,000+ robotics industry professionals
in the Robotics Trends' industry database
"Robotics are rapidly traveling the cost-performance curve toward the
potential for delivering real, cost-saving scurity solutions," said
John Galante, president of AE Ventures, which produces ESX for the
Central Station Alarm Association (CSAA) International and Electronic
Security Association (ESA). "Exciting for integrators and central
stations is the potential to generate RMR from security robots by
leasing, maintaining, monitoring and remotely controlling the equipment.
We're thrilled to be on the cutting edge of this technology trend."
