Whitepaper: Multi-residential access management – The move to digital

Podcast: Smart Buildings

Podcast: Episode 15 – Why physical security is integral to the smart building ecosystem

How do we define the term, smart building? What does it truly mean and how does one function? Crucially, what is security’s role in the development and functionality of smart buildings?

Episode 15 of the IFSEC Insider Security in Focus podcast looks to answer exactly these questions. Well, specifically, Kevin Brownell and Darren Chalmers Stevens from smart consultancy firm, Nuxform, do.

Both have a background and expertise in physical security technology, and so are perfectly positioned to answer these questions. They explain why the security team and the assets it owns are fundamental to smart buildings, as well as how managers and directors can ensure their voices are heard in the matter.

We also hear from Mike Brooman, CEO at master systems integrator, Vanti. Mike speaks to us from IFSEC in May at the Smart Buildings Immersive Experience, where he discusses the benefits of an integrated environment, where connected data points can provide genuine and actionable insight to make buildings more sustainable and secure.
