2013 Electronic Security Expo to Focus on Security Robotics
The Electronic Security Expo (ESX)  announced today that it will produce new media and event opportunities to help connect makers and distributors of security robots and robotics platforms with security systems integrators, monitoring companies and security industry OEMs. As robotics increase in functionality, reliability, and cloud connectivity — and decrease in cost — their potential application for typical guarding and detection tasks is on the rise.
The initiative, being termed “Security Robotics: Vision 2013,” will define, describe and showcase that potential, helping OEMs and channel partners connect, speeding up development and adoption of security robotics solutions. EH’s Robotics Trends Group, operators of the RoboticsTrends.com  and RoboticsBusinessReview.com websites and producers of the RoboBusiness Leadership Summit, will assist in outreach for the program.
“Security Robotics: Vision 2013” is a three-part program, including:
Research. In February, ESX-producer AE Ventures’ research division, AE Analytics, will field an online survey to better delineate interest in security robotics at all levels in the security supply chain from OEMs to integration and monitoring companies to commercial end-users.
Event. ESX 2013 will feature a Security Robotics Tech Zone within its exhibits, June 19-20, 2013 in Nashville, TN. Promoted as a special feature of ESX, the Zone will offer a cost-effective opportunity to demonstrate robots and robotics to the ESX audience of security integration and monitoring companies and security OEMs.
Digital Media. In July, ESX will produce a webinar on security robotics and distribute a digital special report on security robotics. The webinar and report will be promoted to 20,000+ security professionals in the ESX industry database, plus 20,000+ robotics industry professionals in the Robotics Trends’ industry database
“Robotics are rapidly traveling the cost-performance curve toward the potential for delivering real, cost-saving security solutions,” said John Galante, president of AE Ventures, which produces ESX for the Central Station Alarm Association (CSAA) International and Electronic Security Association (ESA). “Exciting for integrators and central stations is the potential to generate RMR from security robots by leasing, maintaining, monitoring and remotely controlling the equipment. We’re thrilled to be on the cutting edge of this technology trend.”
