With more than twenty of the top names in security exhibiting at the upcoming Facilities Integrate trade expo, the event is a must-attend for New Zealand Security Association members. In fact, NZSA itself along with fellow industry body ASIS are among the exhibitors and we’d love to see our members there, so do pop along and say ‘hello’.
For those who don’t know, Facilities Integrate is an annual trade-only event for people who make buildings smarter, safer, and more efficient. We obviously fall on the side of making buildings (and people) safer. There’s a lot to see in the security space this year such as Panasonic showcasing a new video intercom range, and ICT demonstrating a new access control system.
Other familiar vendor names appearing include Atlas GenTech, Assa Abloy, Channel Ten Distribution, Challenger Safes, dormakaba, First Security, Hafele, Hills, Gallagher, Geutebruck, HIKvision and LSC. Integrators also displaying their services at the show include Aotea Security, ENGIE Services, Custom Technology Solutions, Waterford Security and GDR Architectural.
While the big range of security operators, suppliers and vendors is a major drawcard in its own right, there’s even more to Facilities Integrate which makes it well worth marking in your calendar. Because the show gathers all the major players in one place, you can try and buy the latest equipment, source the best suppliers, network with potential business partners, and stay on top of what’s going on in your immediate industry and the many disciplines with which security must interface.
Facilities Integrate is free to attend with a pre-registration or $25 at the gate, so book your tickets without delay. The trade show takes place on 25 and 26 September at the ASB Showgrounds in Auckland. Visit https://www.facilitiesintegrate.nz for more information.

Here’s some updated advice from the Authority on In-House Crowd Controllers and Bar Staff.
If you are a crowd controller, you must have a certificate of approval. For example, if you work as a crowd controller for a bar, rather than a private security company, you need a certificate.
If you hold a COA in the class of Crowd Controller you must work for a PSPLA Company Licence holder or PSPLA Individual Licence holder. It is best practice for all bars and restaurants directly employing crowd controllers (door staff) to hold both a Liquor Licence and a PSPLA Company Licence in the class of Crowd Controller.
Bar managers and staff only need a certificate of approval if, as part of their job description, they act as a crowd controller by:
– Screening entry
– Keeping order
– Removing people.
Bar staff who mainly make drinks and clear tables are not crowd controllers, even if they occasionally remove people from the bar.”
