New Products Directory ASIS 2013

By: John Honovich, Published on Sep 24, 2013

New product releases are a dud overall. The biggest news is Axis and Milestone both entering the physical access control market.

Before that, the two announcements getting the most reads so far are Aventura's H.265 cameras, which most people believe is marketing hype, and Milestone's Husky NVRs, which is less innovative than opportunistic.

  • Amuyle - mobile PERS offering
  • Pixy - $59 smart camera module, clever but not terribly useful for surveillance / security
