Company: Inim Electronics
Position: Shareholder and Managing Director
Until a short time ago, anti-intrusion systems were completely disconnected from the outside world due to the fact that they lacked Internet access. Today, systems offer various forms of remote access thanks to modern, simple interfaces. The real challenge is to innovate and use new technologies whilst still maintaining a high-level of security. This is why professional security products make use of modern data encryption techniques and integrate cutting-edge solutions to identify tamper and violation. Such measures make communication channels reliable and safe, both between the local system and peripheral devices and the system and the Internet. Thanks to the cloud, the systems are interconnected in a large IoT network that stores data and sends notifications in real time, making things easy for both users and installers. The analysis of big data collected by the cloud, will allow us to create behavioral models increasingly closer to reality, while the AI will open new scenarios of technological development and new forms of business.
Baldovino Ruggieri has graduated with honors in electronic engineering from the University of Ancona (today UNIVPM). He began his career as an Electronic Designer in what was then a small company in the security sector. He dealt with the design and development of hardware and software. He also wrote what was to be the first PC software for intrusion control panels in Italy.
Throughout the years he contributed to the growth of the company that became a leader in the Italian market. In the beginning, he played an active role in the introduction of new technologies, then proceeded to design discontinuous-technology products using cutting-edge technology. Later, he offered his contribution to the overall management of projects and the technical department. The entry of the company into a large multinational group saw him involved initially in positions of project management for the European market followed by being appointed marketing manager with the mission to conceptualize and plan for the development of products and markets. In 2005, together with other colleagues, he decided to use his expertise and passion for the security sector to face a new challenge: INIM. It is a challenge that exists even today in an attempt, often a successful one, to stay ahead of time and be innovative in imagining a new way of providing security.
