What could be the usual company Security Manager‘s worst nightmare? Perhaps a wide open front door with no turnstile and lots of complete strangers strolling in and out unchallenged, able to wander freely all over the building, and not a boundary fence in sight.

We look at the tools and methods available to them to provide the service that every guest can rightfully expect.
While airport safety and security are widely being discussed in the public, railway security is in most parts an insider issue.

For certain environments standard fire detectors are not applicable. The flush-mounted smoke detector from Apollo is used in installations where it is impractical or undesirable to use a standard smoke detector. This might be for aesthetic reasons where an architect specifies unobtrusive fire detection or it might be for reasons of safety where a standard fire detector might be viewed as a hazard - for example, in a prison cell.

Novar GmbH: improvements in fire detection. When looking at the catalogues of manufacturers in the field of technical fire detection, it becomes obvious that for fire detectors alone, there is already a vast selection of variants with a multitude of different features. It is almost impossible to produce one detector which is equally sensitive to all fire characteristics. However, there are now products on the market which are getting closer to making this a reality.
