The Smart Zone

The Internet of Things (IoT) is becoming an ever important element of various technology solutions for the home and commercial buildings. The ability to connect, communicate with, and remotely manage a vast number of networked, automated devices via the internet is now inescapable, from the factory floor to the hospital operating room to the residential basement.

Following on from last year’s hugely successful ‘Home Automation House’, a fully functioning smart home in the middle of the exhibition floor, you can expect an even more heightened focus on all things ‘smart’ in 2017. New for 2017, the Smart Zone will feature across all three dates of the show. This new area has been created to cover not only home automation devices but also the wider IoT, including smart commercial buildings, smart offices, and connected security systems.

The IFSEC International Smart Zone will give you the opportunity to get hands on with all of the latest smart products to hit the shelves, from smart underwear to fully connected security systems.

Test and trial the latest devices first hand, quiz manufacturers the ins and outs of their solutions, and get a behind the scenes preview of what they actually take to install, maintain, and work with on a daily basis.

2016 saw us build a smart building for the first time on the IFSEC show floor, with the Home Automation House. Following its success, the Smart Building will take things bigger and better for IFSEC 2017.

The Smart Theatre

There’s no doubt that increasingly connected devices bring a new security risk to our homes, places of work, and our data. That’s why the Smart Zone’s designated seminar theatre, will give you the opportunity to learn from security experts as they discuss IoT best practice and assess worst case scenario case studies, as well as look ahead to future technology and emerging trends.
