Predictive Analytics<p>​OneEvent Technologies of Mount Horeb, Wisconsin, created the OnePrevent system that can predict disasters before they occur and alert users to prevent misfortune. A powerful cloud-based analytical engine constantly monitors factors such as temperature, air quality, motion, and moisture to learn what is normal in a space. If the system receives an abnormal reading, it can determine potential risks and alert property managers of the possibility of a disaster, such as a fire or flood, before the event occurs. In testing, the system anticipated fires up to 20 minutes before smoke alarms went off. The flexible system can be installed where buildings are at risk for events such as fire, water damage, gas leaks, and unauthorized access.</p><img alt="" src="/ASIS%20SM%20Product%20Images/oneevent%20-%20edit.png" style="BORDER&#58;0px solid;" />
Casino Surveillance<p>​Synectics of Sheffield, United Kingdom, introduced a suite of solutions that are tailored to casino environments, enabling users to control their surveillance as they wish.

Synergy 3 can set, save, and roll out user-defined camera settings to other cameras that are similarly situated. The EX300 Advanced Control Suite is a touchscreen tablet with optional jog shuttle, keypad, and/or joystick that uses gesture-based control for improved incident management, alarm processing, and operational efficiency.</p><img alt="" height="195" src="/ASIS%20SM%20Product%20Images/Synectics%20edit.png" width="300" style="BORDER&#58;0px solid;" />
