Especially on the basis of the tense economy, we presented ourselves at the SPS 2019, the leading trade fair for smart and digital automation. Our alerting solution makes the best use of your staff and cost-effectively supports your maintenance and emergency response teams.

The number of exhibitors with their own booth space is larger than ever before. In addition to their innovative strength, the exhibitors showed numerous product innovations and solutions for the challenges of today and tomorrow at the trade fair booths.

At SPS 2019, 1,585 exhibitors presented their products and services on an exhibition space of 135,500 m2 .

And at SPS 2020, Alarm IT Factory will of course once again present the Alarm Control Center and introduce new features for professional alarming solutions.

In spring you will find us at the Hanover Fair in Hall 016 at Stand F12 from April 20 - 24, 2020. We look forward to your visit and the lively exchange about possible applications in your company.

Our outlook for 2020:

  • ACC in the cloud
    • Hosting the ACC in the cloud instead of on your own computers? This is particularly interesting for companies that have many locations with few participants. The control systems are connected to a central ACC, clients and user administration ensure the separation of the data of the locations.
    • Here the ACC development uses the previous experience of hosting the ACC web service for the notification on iPhones at Microsoft Azure. This is now being expanded step by step for the entire ACC.
  • Discontinuation of Alarm Control Center V4.7 - V4.13
    • The following ACC versions are hereby discontinued. As of the date stated below, no extensions are available for these versions, technical support will also be discontinued.
    • Date 31.12.2019: discontinuation of ACC V4.7, V4.8, V4.10, V4.11 and V4.12
    • Date 09/30/2020: discontinuation of ACC V4.13
