Retail sales get an iPhone kick in September, but overall demand weak
A gauge of U.S. consumer spending rose in September as Americans likely snapped up Apple's new iPhone and bought leisure goods, but falling sales of automobiles pointed to sluggish economic growth during the third quarter. The Commerce Department said on Tuesday retail sales excluding automobiles, gasoline and building materials, increased 0.5 percent last month after a 0.2 percent gain in August. The so-called core sales correspond most closely with the consumer spending component of gross domestic product. Core sales last month were boosted by a 0.7 percent advance in receipts at electronics and appliance stores. Economists polled by Reuters had expected core retail sales to increase 0.4 percent in September. The increase last month probably reflected sales of Apple's new iPhone. Those sales likely boosted receipts at non-store retailers, mostly Internet sites, which increased 0.4 percent in September. Apple said it sold 33.8 million iPhones in the September quarter. While Americans bought smart phones, they cut back on automobile purchases, with sales at auto dealers falling 2.2 percent, the biggest drop since October last year. That pushed down overall retail sales, which fell 0.1 percent in September. It was the first decline since March and followed a 0.2 percent gain in August. Economists had expected retail sales to edge up 0.1 percent last month. Retail sales excluding automobiles rose 0.4 percent. View the U.S. Census Bureau monthly sales report here. (Source

Researcher finds major security holes in IZON surveillance camera
The IZON surveillance camera sold in Apple Stores and Best Buy outlets is filled with security holes that enable a hacker to easily commandeer the device. Mark Stanislav, security evangelist for two-factor authentication platform vendor Duo Security, started investigating the camera after buying the Wi-Fi device for his home and discovering it was configured, so anyone could access the device if it's on the Internet. Stanislav's findings, presented this week at the Rochester Security Summit in Rochester, N.Y., were startling. With only an IP address for the device, a person could log into the Web interface of any IZON camera, using the default user name and password, which was "user" for both, Stanislav said. Once logged in, a person could view everything the camera sees within the home. (Source

Federal Cybersecurity Falls Short on User
Fending off cybersecurity breaches from external sources is a difficult task. but when breach problems arise from within an organization, the challenge of protecting information becomes even more difficult. While U.S. government agencies have intensified their use of cybersecurity control technologies, it appears that improved technology will fall short of meeting the security challenge unless the implementation is user-friendly. Half of all agency security breaches were caused by a lack of user compliance, according to a recent survey. (Source

Axis Announces High Frame Rate Fixed Network Cameras that Capture Quick Movements in HDTV Quality and Extreme Lighting Conditions

AXIS Q1614 and AXIS Q1614-E deliver HDTV 720p video at 60 frames per second; feature both WDR-Dynamic Capture and Lightfinder to combat difficult lighting

CHELMSFORD, Mass. – October 29, 2013 – Axis Communications, the market leader in network video surveillance, today announced AXIS Q1614 and AXIS Q1614-E Network Cameras designed for identification of people and objects in high movement scenes and demanding lighting conditions. With high video performance and innovative installation features, these new fixed IP cameras are ideal for traffic monitoring, city surveillance and industrial applications.

Exciting features of AXIS Q1614/-E include:
• HDTV 720p video up to 60 frames per second;
WDR-Dynamic Capture for high contrast scenes;
Lightfinder technology for color detail at night;
• and new installation and maintenance features such as leveling assistance and high-sensitive shock detection.

Quick scenes, faster video
The indoor AXIS Q1614 and outdoor-ready AXIS Q1614-E can capture quick movements in HDTV 720p clarity by recording up to 60 frames per second, which is twice the usual frame rate as conventional cameras. This ensures that quick movements are captured in detail so that, for example, vehicles can be recognized or fast-moving objects on an industrial production line can be better identified.

Image usability in any lighting condition
AXIS Q1614/-E Network Cameras also feature Axis’ Wide Dynamic Range (WDR) – Dynamic Capture technology to handle complex environments with extensive lighting contrasts such as when sunlight creates both very bright and dark shadowy areas in the same scene. Under these extreme lighting circumstances, AXIS Q1614 and AXIS Q1614-E provide consistent, homogeneous images by eliminating the too dark or too bright zones. This allows for identification of people and objects no matter where they are in the monitored area.

Additionally, AXIS Q1614/-E cameras feature Axis’ award-winning Lightfinder technology to allow for color video detail in extreme low-light conditions. In contrast to conventional day and night cameras that switch to black and white in darkness, cameras incorporating Axis’ Lightfinder technology maintain color even in very dark conditions. There are many situations where color video is important for successful identification, and this capability greatly enhances the possibility to effectively identify people and objects even at night.

“Following in the footsteps of the popular AXIS P3384 Fixed Dome Network Cameras, AXIS Q1614 cameras are the next to feature two of Axis’ most innovative imaging technologies in the same device: WDR-Dynamic Capture and Lightfinder,” said Fredrik Nilsson, general manager, Axis Communications, Inc. “Not only do users have the best of both worlds when combating tough lighting conditions, the new cameras also provide exceptionally smooth video up to 60 frames per second and feature first-of-its-kind installation innovations. AXIS Q1614 and AXIS Q1614-E can handle nearly any scenario.”

Innovative installation and maintenance features
With the launch of AXIS Q1614/-E Fixed Network Cameras, Axis introduces new innovative installation features to cut down on time needed for installation and to ensure optimal performance. With the new leveling assistance, for example, a buzzer and flashing light guide the installer to mount the camera at the right horizontal level. This is very useful if the installer is unsure whether or not the installation bracket is mounted straight.

AXIS Q1614/-E are also Axis’ first cameras with adjustable high-sensitive shock detection, a function that enables the camera to automatically send an alarm to a control room if it is hit. This feature is especially valuable in areas subject to vandalism and helps operators maximize camera uptime (see movie).

Price and availability
The indoor AXIS Q1614 and outdoor-ready AXIS Q1614-E fixed network cameras are planned to be available in Q4 2013 through Axis’ distribution channels at the suggested retail prices of $1,099 and $1,399 respectively.

Both indoor and outdoor versions of the camera are supported by AXIS Camera Station as well as the industry’s largest base of video management software through Axis’ Application Development Partner Program. AXIS Q16 Series also supports AXIS Camera Companion for edge-based recording of small camera systems, AXIS Camera Application Platform for software developers to create intelligent apps that run inside the camera, AXIS Video Hosting System for connection to hosted video systems and the ONVIF standard for easy system integration.

The most prevailing comment made by corporate America when they come to market looking for a new senior Loss Prevention executive is bring me someone who has a total business acumen and understands the entire business. Take note to this common theme as it sends a very clear message that you've got to be a retail executive first that happens to be a subject matter expert in Loss Prevention. And as we continue to evolve technologically the demands are greater that you understand the financial, merchandising, supply chain, and operations side of the business and know how to integrate the various shrinkage reduction components within all of them. Being able to communicate all of that is a series of meetings is truly the key and then being able to do it day in and day out is the objective.
