Thomas on Tour at IFSEC International

Two weeks ago we reviewed the “world’s smallest” HD Dome Camera from Avigilon, and in an effort to explain how small it was, we showed it next to a golf ball and a Thomas the Tank Engine toy.

So at IFSEC International last week, Thomas went on tour again, trying himself out for size next to some of the other mini and micro surveillance cameras at the show.

Click on the image below to start the slideshow and see how he got on:

And when the show was finally over, Thomas made his way toward the door on his journey down to London. As we now know, he’s very small, so it’s likely to take him the whole year. See you in London June 17-19 2014.

Lol, what a fun post. Likewise, it’s a fun way to drive a simple point across. I wonder where we’ll see Thomas next?

Nice to see you enjoyed this one. Pretty funny way to show off the small cameras around IFSEC. Next time: fireman Sam shows us how to use fire protection products (maybe not!)
