Optex systems have been successfully deployed across the EMEA region for over 40 years for a number of applications ranging from perimeter security to indoor intrusion detection and roof and asset protection.
GIT SECURITY had the opportunity to talk to Masaya Kida, Managing Director of Optex EMEA at this year’s Intersec Dubai. We discussed market trends, the challenges of outdoor intrusion detection, visual verification, and Optex‘s approach to working with partners.
GIT SECURITY: How important is the deep integration with other partners on the VMS side and with other technology partners?
Masaya Kida: At Optex our mission is to protect and help to create safety, security, and comfort in societies around the world through the use of our sensing technology. Our partners help to fulfil this mission. We have seen a strong demand from the market for solutions for critical infrastructure, transportation, utilities and energy, and we are significantly investing to develop such solutions together with our technology partners. Our sensors are at the cornerstone of the security system, they do a great job at accurately detecting intrusions, enabling a more efficient and reliable system, but in order to provide a complete solution they need to be part of a wider system, which is why all of our detectors integrate with all major VMS and PSIM systems. They need solutions to keep up their operations and we help them to stop or minimize disruption.
