Winner of the ‘2013 IFSEC Best CCTV System of the Year’, Raytec’s range of VARIO network illuminators has now been extended to include PoE capability and 4 new model sizes in both Infra-Red and White-Light.
PoE capability allows for a much quicker and more cost effective lighting installation. VARIO IP PoE illuminators can be easily integrated onto an existing network infrastructure, with no local mains connections or special electrical labour required.
Operated via integrated web interface or VMS, VARIO IP PoE allows for quick and easy remote set up, commissioning, operation and maintenance of your lighting scheme from anywhere on the network 24/7. Users have full control over their lighting at all times to respond to live events in real time, triggering lighting to deter crime, or altering light settings in response to operational changes for the best CCTV images and safety at all times.
An API is available for seamless VMS integration, allowing quick and easy operation of your lighting within your overall security system. A new HTTP API is also coming soon to allow for IP lighting via simple HTTP commands.
VARIO IP PoE can be controlled individually or in groups and triggered on demand via a variety of other network devices e.g. cameras/detectors, and scheduled using a timer for activation only when needed, to reduce electrical consumption even further.
The VARIO family of illuminators boasts a number of industry firsts including VARIO IP PoE - the first ever CCTV illuminator to integrate into a VMS, and it is now further strengthened with the addition of new specialist solutions such as VARIO Hybrid, VARIO Lighthouse Kit and VARIO D-Zoom.
