“Intersec Building” Spotlights Safety and Security Technology at Light + Building

August 3, 2018

The growing demand for connected safety and security technology in buildings and smart cities will be underscored from March 8 to 13, 2020 by Intersec Building with the Intersec Forum as the information interface. Both are component parts of the Light + Building trade fair n Frankfurt, Germany, and will offer an interdisciplinary overview of connected safety and security in the field of building-services technology.

“Safety and security technology has been and is an integral part of Light + Building,” confirms Wolfgang Marzin, President and CEO of Messe Frankfurt. Moreover, he adds, “with Intersec Building we are putting the spotlight on connected safety and security technology. As a growing sector, it is an increasingly indispensable aspect of various fields of building-services technology and thus needs a clearly defined event focus.” With Intersec Building, Light + Building will cater for specific interests on both the demand and supply sides and thus actively promote digital business models.

Manufacturers will use Intersec Building to present technologies relevant to safety and security to the trade visitors, such as data-protection software, access control and surveillance systems while using Light + Building as a com­prehensive platform for building-services technology. Simultaneously, the demand side will benefit from a more concentrated product segment. “To protect modern buildings and future-oriented infrastructure effectively against third-party access, it is essential that networked security technology always be included in the planning and installation phases of intelligent building-services technology”, says Dr Henrik Kelz, CEO, ZVEI-Services. “As the platform for safety and security in the heart of Light + Building, Intersec Building stands perfectly for this relationship.” The aim of Intersec Building is to organize themes, interests and market demands in such a way that – as on the Internet – they are only a well-considered link away from each other.

The main information interface of the new aggregated product segment is the Intersec Forum. The conference for networked security technology filters innovations, discusses challenges and promotes the exchange of ideas and information in the sector. “This is where you can find out, for example, how hardware and software can be purposefully integrated with each other in the context of interconnected building-services technology”, comments Wolfgang Marzin.

In March 2018, Intersec Forum inspired 650 participants to actively exchange ideas and information. The focus of the event was on interconnecting systems, products and digital applications in the field of power-controlled safety and security technology.
