ASHFORD, Middx, England -
Chubb will address the important role of innovative security solutions in connected cities at the forthcoming Smart Cities 2017 conference. The two-day event will feature thought leaders from around the United Kingdom who will discuss the challenges and opportunities related to the themes of secure cities and urban innovation. Chubb, a leading provider of security and fire-safety solutions, is a part of UTC Climate, Controls & Security, a unit of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE: UTX).
Smart Cities UK 2017 will take a closer look at what’s known as “smart transformation” across cities within the UK. The aim is to provide guidance and information on transforming the systems vital to a smart city, including security, energy, transport, waste and critical national infrastructure.
Colin Leatherbarrow (pictured left), Product Solutions Director, Chubb, will speak about the need for closer collaboration between the public and private sectors in order to protect people and business. He will also discuss how enhanced security helps residents better enjoy everything the urban space has to offer, such as culture, national heritage, entertainment and commerce.
“With the speed of new technology being adopted, ‘connected’ fire and security solutions have a place in any smart city where digital solutions are used to increase the efficiency of traditional networked services,” says Leatherbarrow.
Smart Cities UK 2017 is being held at Stamford Bridge, London on the 1st and 2nd February.
