Thanks to all of you for your visit, positive opinions and confirmed interest in ESI products and services !

Expoprotection has closed its doors by now and we are pleased to observe the importance taken by this event for the ESI Group, despite a format reduced to 3 days this year.

Many customers, prospects and friends came to visit us, some to sharecoffee and others to discuss about their projects or raise specific issues. The visits have continued at a steady pace and we wish to apologize to all those to whom we hadn’t the material capacity to give sufficient time and attention.

Our French and foreign visitors were particularly interested in DIGIAIR, WALLINK, SoftNetManager and Smart Badge. The award goes to the demonstration of M1 iClient thin client latest generation, which now integrates video, audio, plans and mapping.

Thanks to all of you for your visit, positive opinions and confirmed interest in ESI products and services.

Some of you wondered about the slogan in front of our stand, so let us clarify what this funny and a bit provocative question refers.

Who else ….

  • - Made the choice to invest and develop such a large team at your service?
  • - Has an R&D team of 28 experienced developers?
  • - Puts at your disposal a team of 5 multi-lingual Hotliners with 24/7 support?
  • - As well as a cell of 5 people dedicated to project management?
  • - Who else than ESI offers such a large and dedicated panel of solutions to so many professions on the security market
  • - Has established so many technological partnerships with international manufacturers?
  • - Was the first to propose open-end solutions concentrating more than 350 alarm/video protocols?
  • - Challenged its R&D, against all pessimistic opinions and any short-term financial interest for the company, in order to develop a complete software solution in thin client?
  • - Concentrates an international experience in more than 30 countries and anticipates the future by participating in so many national and international working groups?
  • - Provides a technological support throughout the life of its customers and assists them regularly in the conquest of new markets?
  • - Has set up a Business Continuity Plan for 10 years, a double management head and guarantees the sustainability of its products by multiplying the resources and skills on each software?

It is this DNA that we wished, without provocation but with accuracy, to evoke through this small sentence.

​DigiAir: the next generation wireless digital communicator with zero call costs


DualCom DigiAir utilises all mobile networks via our WorldSIM instead of a telephone line to signal an alarm from the protected premises to the Alarm Receiving Centre (ARC).

It is designed for low to medium risk premises and is an ideal upgrade for wired digital communicators as it eliminates call costs and phone charges. DigiAir is small enough to fit into any existing or legacy control panel. It can be supplied complete with a Compact Power Supply for installations where the control panel is unable to consistently provide 12v DC and provides a more aesthetically pleasing finish.

DigiAir is unaffected by Next Generation Networks (NGNs), the telephone network upgrade from copper to fibre to accommodate higher speed broadband services. Unlike older digital communicators, DigiAirdoes not rely on copper to send a signal.


Our multi-network WorldSIM is supplied with every DualCom as standard and has an increased signal reliability to reduce abusive alarms. The France’s leading mobile networks are recorded into the DualCom’s memory with the most reliable being selected automatically. Fewer line faults sent to the ARC, means fewer false alarms for Installers and end users.

Resilience & Intelligence

DigiAir is supported by the Gemini & ASPLink Platforms, a Critical Connectivity platforms which have been designed with full resilience and diversity at every point. Gemini & ASPLink check the entire signalling route every minute providing the highest levels of reliability required by professional signalling systems. Users also have access to the Gemini Insight web portal for visibility on the performance of a signalling estate.

F1com integrated with SoftNet Manager

Following the integration of the alarm supervisor K1 with SoftNet Manager, it is now the turn of the ESI communication interface F1com.

F1, front end receiver, supports nearly 200 alarm, security supervisors and access control system protocols. This interface allows the Manager SoftNet to receive any alarm message including those of F1 which is the main objective of this integration.

What possibilities for the future?

Currently, there is already a compatibility with many systems managing access control: Bosch, Siemens, Synchronic, Gunnebo, Telem, Til Technologies, ... The ESI development team strengthens and supports Softnet Manager development team in order to achieve a rapid integration of new access control protocols to complete the list.

The compatibility of new protocols will be communicated as soon as they are ready when they will be realized. Some manufacturers have already decided to integrate F1com to ensure this consistency.

From now on SoftNet Manager integrates Axioms and ARD protocols thanks to F1com.



Vanderbilt startet Partnerschaft mit ESI, um den Einsatz von IP-Technologie in Empfangszentralen zu optimieren

Vanderbilt, ein weltweit führender Anbieter von modernsten Sicherheitssystemen, hat bekannt gegeben, dass sich seine Einbruchmeldelösung SPC dank einer wegweisenden Partnerschaft mit dem Sicherheitssoftware-Lösungsentwickler European Systems Integration (ESI) jetzt noch einfacher in Alarm- Empfangszentralen (CMS=Central Monitoring Station) integrieren lässt. Aus dieser Partnerschaft ist inzwischen das erste durchgängige Internet-Protokoll-fähige (IP) System hervorgegangen, das sich für den Einsatz in CMS-Umgebungen eignet, damit dort die herkömmliche analoge Festnetztechnologie (PSTN) durch modernste IP-basierte Technik abgelöst werden kann

Diverse Telekommunikationsdienstanbieter aus Großbritannien, Spanien, Deutschland, Schweden und Italien haben bereits angekündigt, dass sie demnächst komplett auf IP-Telefonie umsteigen wollen, und in Frankreich will Orange bis zum Jahr 2020 sein gesamtes Festnetzsystem einstellen und komplett durch moderne IP-basierte Services ersetzen. Das bedeutet, dass bis dann der Umstieg von althergebrachter, analoger Festnetztechnologie auf die IP-Technik in jeder Empfangszentrale (CMS) abgeschlossen sein muss.

Um diese Umstellung für Installateure und ihre Kunden zu vereinfachen und um sicherzustellen, dass diese von sämtlichen Vorzügen der IP-Technik profitieren und eine vollständige SPC-Integration durchführen können, hat Vanderbilt zusammen mit ESI ein ehrgeiziges Projekt umgesetzt. Das Ergebnis ist eine Plattform zur nahtlosen Kommunikation zwischen einer SPC-Meldezentrale und einer CMS, die durch die Alarmempfangs- und Videoübertragungsgeräten „F1“ und „V1“ von ESI umgesetzt wird.

„F1“ unterstützt im Bereich der Alarmübertragung unterschiedliche Netzwerke und Protokolle in einer komplett offenen Lösung. Durch die Verwendung eines vereinheitlichten Standardprotokolls wird die parallele Nutzung mehrerer unterschiedlicher Systeme überflüssig gemacht. Zudem ermöglicht „V1“ das Annehmen und Führen von Gesprächen, die Audio-Verifikation von Ereignissen sowie das Speichern von Videoaufzeichnungen auf einem Backup-Server. „V1“ wiederum bietet bidirektionale Kommunikation mit der Alarmüberwachungssoftware, wobei es die Client-Server-Architektur ermöglicht, jedem CMS-Anwender Videos auf seiner Workstation bereit zu stellen.

Dadurch bieten beide Geräte jedem Anwender die Möglichkeit, auf umfangreichere und aussagekräftigere Daten zur audiovisuellen Verifikation zuzugreifen. Unter anderem können die Anwender jetzt mit maximaler Effizienz auf jedes Alarmereignis reagieren, indem sie dieses in Echtzeit überprüfen und beispielsweise – falls es sich dabei um einen Fehlalarm handeln sollte – rechtzeitig die unnötige Entsendung von Einsatzkräften verhindern können. Da die Anwendersoftware speziell für die Interaktion mit SPC entwickelt wurde, ermöglicht sie eine engere und umfassendere Integration. Dadurch kann jeder Anwender von den einzigartigen Funktionen und Vorteilen eines der besten Einbruchmelde-Produkte das derzeit auf dem Markt erhältlich ist, der SPC-Familie, profitieren. SPC hat in diesem Zusammenhang bereits mehr internationale Zulassungen als jedes andere System in der Sicherheitsbranche erhalten.

„Dank unserer bahnbrechenden Zusammenarbeit mit ESI können jetzt mehr Empfangszentralen denn je in ganz Europa von den einzigartigen Funktionen und Vorteilen profitieren welche SPC bietet“, sagt Christophe Reithler, Market Manager Frankreich bei Vanderbilt. „Wir sind fest davon überzeugt, dass nun das IP-Zeitalter endgültig angebrochen ist, und wir sind besonders stolz darauf, dass wir der Einführung dieser zukunftsweisenden Technologie mit der ersten komplett durchgängigen Lösung den Weg bereiten. Ich bin absolut zuversichtlich, dass diese bahnbrechende Lösung zu einer erheblichen Effizienzsteigerung führen wird, indem sie den CMS-Anbietern ein bislang unerreichtes Maß an Zuverlässigkeit, Funktionalität und Flexibilität bietet.“

​Alarm Monitoring and the Future by Claude-Philippe NERI

Recent events confirmed our feeling that the Alarm Monitoring Market Place is naturally helped by the new technologies.

The present Network weakness (PSTN and GPRS) will be abandoned to switch mainly on 4G and tomorrow 4G+; 4.5G; 5G or fibre network for information and multimedia transportation.

Connected devices, Artificial Intelligence, Embedded Intelligence will provide sustainable solutions to face the Big Data of security information.

Big data security analytics can become the nexus of information security integration

This situation is an opportunity for the Cybersecurity.

In the near future, machines that are linked together in networks could revolutionize the architecture of existing infrastructures including manufacturing, energy distribution and transportation systems. We believed that security occupies an important place in this new model.

2,5 billions a year more of connected devices will be present on the market place for the next ten years. This means an increasing number of microcomputers that control their operations, perform useful applications, measure, sense…

In this market place all things, goods and people will be connected: trucks, buses, cars, peoples, pets, bags, phones, watches, precious objects.

Such a big number information that need to be stored, analysed and dispatched to specialized platforms concerned by Homeland Security, Elderly care, Geographical Localization, Residential security, Goods transportation, Fire alarms and individual security.

So a lot of new services should be proposed to the security Market Place in a cross border or worldwide mode

An ARC will be linked to The Big Data Could in order to cross-needed information to assume the security of goods, Building and people. Getting location, Health Status and of course video Live.

But the transformation of this way of handling alarms will not happened in one day, so the first steps will be:

  • The concentration of information in Data centers.
  • All old PSTN and GPRS network will disappear, replaced by high speed connexions transporting Datas, Video and Sound.
  • ARC’s will become international in a cross Borders mode. For Europe, only two ARC’s will be necessary. Having all the technologies for receiving, analyse and treating the information dispatched to operational workstation in each country providing a reliable relationship in the language of the customer.
  • Robots and drones support.
  • Artificial Intelligence could be used in order to help operator’s to get the right decision in this maelstrom of information.

ESI helped by his large R&D department is continually adding features to reaching this target. The cross border capability, the cloud storage, the multimedia receiving information, the multilingual support, the high speed networks support is our present.
