Unveiling the Latest Security Technology: Highlights from Mexico's Expo Seguridad 2023
Expo Seguridad Mexico was created in 2002 to bring together suppliers and users of the security industry, covering products and solutions in security systems such as alarms, surveillance, access control, cybersecurity, law enforcement, telecommunications, automation, artificial intelligence, vehicles and drones.
In 2007, as a complement, Expo Seguridad Industrial emerged to cover the occupational health, hygiene, and fire equipment needs. Since then, both events have been held together, co-located on the same dates, and sharing the venue. Thus, Expo Seguridad Mexico came to position itself as the largest and most important event for the security industry in Latin America. As a showcase for technology, solutions, products, and knowledge, but above all providing a meeting point for manufacturers, distributors, and integrators, as well as domestic and foreign users.
LMCA's Sr. Director of Brand Development in Mexico, Miriam Camara, attended the Expo last week on behalf of our clients Castrol, Cummins and Electrolux!
One of the key highlights of the event was the focus on home security, which drew the attention of homeowners and security experts alike. The home security section of the expo featured a variety of products and solutions designed to keep homes and families safe. One of the most popular exhibits was the smart home security systems, which are equipped with high-definition cameras, motion sensors, and smart locks, providing homeowners with a comprehensive security solution. The systems can be controlled via a smartphone app, enabling homeowners to arm and disarm their systems remotely, check live feeds, and receive real-time alerts in case of any suspicious activity. Smart doorbells were also popular, as these allow homeowners to verify the identity of visitors and communicate with them even if they are not home. There were also various other home security solutions featured, such as window sensors, smoke detectors, and carbon monoxide detectors, which are designed to alert homeowners of potential accidents and prevent accidents.
Another key focus was cybersecurity and protecting data, both personal and for businesses. There were a variety of intelligent platforms showcased that use artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning to detect and prevent cyber-attacks. They can analyze vast amounts of data and identify potential threats before they can cause any damage. Secure communications was also highlighted, as users are now more than ever searching for safe and secure channels to communicate through in order to ensure data is not intercepted or compromised during transmission. The latest advancements in this field really emphasize the importance of protecting data in today's interconnected world.
When it comes to industrial security, there was a strong emphasis on the importance of protective clothing, such as helmets and boots, particularly for professionals who work in hazardous conditions, such as firefighters. With safety being a top priority for these professionals, their families, and their employers, this section of the expo drew in a large range of attendees. There are also a variety of new security gadgets, such as gas detection systems, that are meant to further increase protection and detect dangerous conditions in order to prevent accidents.
Lastly, armored vehicles, armor plating, and bulletproof glass features were also widely popular, as they provide a high level of protection even in high-risk situations, giving peace of mind and assurance of safety to users. Furthermore, this is of particular importance in Latin and South America, where violence and crime are ongoing issues. For example, Brazil is the #1 country in which bulletproof cars are most commonly sold and used.
Overall, Expo Securidad 2023 was a comprehensive event which showed the importance of staying up-to-date with the latest innovations and technologies to protect against a constantly evolving range of threats in today's dynamic world. Which, of course, presents a variety of opportunities for those in the licensing industry.
