Siemens Cerberus ECO fire safety integrated into Axxon Intellect PSIM platform The open-platform Axxon Intellect PSIM software from AxxonSoft now offers support for the Siemens Cerberus ECO fire safety system. Siemens constantly improves its technologies, reacting flexibly to market preferences and consumer needs. The company's developers, based in Switzerland and China, were faced with a complicated task: to design a high-reliability fire detection system that is affordable for small and mid-sized business. Their labours resulted in creation of Cerberus ECO, a simple and inexpensive device that meets international quality standards. Cerberus ECO has been developed with small to medium-sized premises in mind, including hotels, shopping centres, hospitals, schools, and similar venues. The system supports up to 504 connected points. Devices integrated into Axxon Intellect PSIM platform: FC1840-A3 control panel. Wall-mounted. Can be programmed from PC or panel. Large LCD (320x240) for rapid and accurate programming. Flexible file handling ensures low start-up and operating expenses. FD181 loop devices: automatic fire sensors FDT181 (thermal), FDO181 (smoke). For automatic alarm call in case of fire. False positives are prevented by special signal processing circuits. Two sensitivity levels plus integrated alarm indicator with 360° field of view. FDM18 manual call points. For manual activation of fire alarm in case of fire. Provided together with a reset key. FDB181 detector base. Weather-resistant for outdoor and indoor use. Can be installed horizontally and/or discretely. FDCI181-2 input module with 2 monitored digital inputs + FDCIO181-2 I/O module with four monitored digital outputs. Allow monitoring the state of dry contacts. Open line and short circuit monitoring for input and output lines. FDCL181 short circuit isolator. Line separator for protection against short circuits. Allows connecting stub lines and prevents breakdown of multiple lines in case of a short circuit, maintaining operational capacity. Advantages of integration Axxon Intellect offers software-level integration support for all subsystems. Free configuration of logical relationships allows performing almost any task through simple programming, which makes system installation remarkably easy. Threat protection becomes more effective. Thanks to integration of video surveillance and fire alarms, false alarms can be avoided more effectively. Intellect also allows performing high-quality fire monitoring by correlating signals with surveillance footage.

AxxonSoft version 2.0.1 of iOS client
AxxonSoft version 2.0.1 of iOS client

Watch and listen! AxxonSoft ships version 2.0.1 of iOS client AxxonSoft has released a new version of its free Axxon Next client app for iOS-based mobile devices. The app allows remote access and monitoring of video surveillance systems based on the Axxon Next VMS platform, as well as integrated security systems powered by the Intellect PSIM. Version 2.0.1 offers additional features for working with Intellect-based systems. The app now implements full duplex support: users can both see and hear what is happening at the protected site. Voice alerts have been added as well, and can be broadcast through loudspeakers connected to IP cameras, for example. This means that an operator using the client app can inspect the site from a mobile device and give voice commands to employees in a central monitoring station. This communication is a convenient time-saver at large and geographically spread-out sites. The iOS client for Axxon Next and Intellect offers a wide range of features. For Axxon Next: Connect to any system server and any camera to view live video or previously recorded footage. Quickly search for important recordings by jumping to the first frame of the previous/next video fragment or to the first/last frame of all recorded video. For Intellect, the client supports all of the above features, plus: Manage alarms. Arm and disarm all cameras. View interactive maps that show camera and sensor locations. Tap to view footage from a camera. Get push notifications about alarms on your iPhone or iPad even when the app is not running, via the Apple Push Notification (APN) service. Both versions of the mobile client are compatible with Axxon Next versions 3.1 and later. Intellect features will become available later when Intellect version 4.9.0 is released. The iOS client supports the iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPod touch (3rd, 4th, and 5th generations), and iPad (2nd generation and later). iOS 6 or later is required. Download the app at the App Store.

AxxonSoft Axxon Next 3.6 VMS with motion-mask detection support
AxxonSoft Axxon Next 3.6 VMS with motion-mask detection support

Version 3.6 of the innovative open-platform video management software Axxon Next is now available. Highlights in the new version include improved system performance and stability, as well as added features and enhancements to functionality and usability. What's new in Axxon Next 3.6 The existing information display boards – the Health Board and Counter Board – have been supplemented with an Events Board. The Events Board displays a list of system events as chosen by user filter settings. When an events board is linked to a camera, operators can simply click an event on the board to view the relevant recorded footage. This allows operators to quickly jump to relevant video, making them more efficient and productive. The new version also allows playing live audio on camera speakers. Thanks to full duplex support, operators can listen to camera audio and speak through the camera speaker at the same time. Camera speakers can be used both to notify of alarms (by playing a sound file) and to give voice notifications (by broadcasting the operator's voice in real time). The opportunities for responding to incidents and alarms with this tool are enormous. Other changes in Axxon Next make the software more manageable and informative. Operators are now warned of interruptions in video recording: if recording of video to the archive on any storage volume is stopped due to hardware error, the user GUI displays a corresponding notification. AxxonSoft has gone to great lengths to integrate the video analytic tools found on the cameras of leading world manufacturers, since the company believes that unlocking on-board capabilities is the largest unmet need on the security market today. To this end, Axxon Next 3.6 supports MotionMask-based detection tools found on board Panasonic cameras. This offers a multizone motion detection, which thanks to integration with Axxon Next allows managing alarms in various detection areas without needing to decompress video. Increased efficiency means that several times less CPU power is required. The release includes Drivers Pack 3.2.24 for support of IP devices. Axxon Next can be activated in free, commercial, or trial versions. The free version supports 1 server, 16 video channels, 1 TB of recorded video, and an unlimited number of clients.
