Intruder Alarm Control Panels & Systems(727)
Perimeter protection is one of the most effective ways to prevent an intruder. A more secure system is one that alerts the user of the presence of an intruder, before they can break into the property. It’s a simple idea, but fitting an external detector comes with challenges. Install the brand-new XDL12TT-AM and provide up to 12m premium and robust pet-friendly external detection. Consisting of two independent Passive Infrared (PIR) sensors and one microwave sensor, the Tri-Technology (TT) of the XDL12TT-AM utilises Tri-Signal Detection Logic to identify the presence of an intruder. This provides reliable and stable external detection as all three sensors must be activated sequentially in quick succession to create an alarm. This enhances the detector’s immunity to environmental disturbances and limits the risk of false alarms. With Dual-Vision Pet Immune Technology, each PIR sensor of the XDL12TT-AM has its own dedicated volumetric field of view. The top PIR detects outwards and up, while the bottom PIR detects outwards and down, without overlapping. This setup, alongside Tri-Signal Detection Logic, delivers highly secure sequential detection and increases its tolerance to pet immunity. So, should any large dogs or cats stray into the coverage plane, it would only be picked up by the bottom PIR and the microwave sensors and therefore an alarm condition would not be activated. However, the lens coverage of the PIRs are angled so that any human will be detected walking through both PIR coverage planes. Therefore, as all three sensors are activated, so would an alarm condition. This increases the detectors stability and limits the risk of false alarms. In terms of changing conditions and swaying vegetation, the XDL12TT-AM features Anti-Sway Analytics. This advanced digital filter distinguishing between the movements of trees and plants from that of an intruder, to maintain optimum performance. The detector also boasts IP55 weatherproof rating, thick polycarbonate plastics and fully sealed optics for optimum external performance. It has even been moulded with a stabilising material to prevent discolouration over time! The XDL12TT-WE also features Anti-Interference Technology to prevent intruders from bypassing detection. This consists of Anti-Masking, which is a Grade 3 Patented Technology that protects against any attempt to mask any of the three sensors with cardboard, duct tape, sprays, lacquers or aluminium foil. It also consists of Anti-Blocking, which is a Grade 4 Technology that prevents the system from being armed if there is anything blocking the vision of any of the sensors. Therefore, to arm the system, whatever is blocking the detector from detecting needs to be removed first. Providing either volumetric or curtain coverage to suit the area that needs protecting, each lens can also be masked to restrict the coverage area. This is particularly useful in areas where busy roads can cause false alarms. The detector also boasts three different frequency bands to avoid any interference (cross-talk) that can occur when two or more detectors with the same frequency band are installed within close proximity of each other. This also allows multiple to be fitted, including the use of a fixed bracket, which enables two to be fitted back to back, providing 24m range with 180° volumetric coverage. Whatever the requirement, the XDL12TT-AM provides the ideal external security solution.

One of the main advantages of Software-as-a-Service solutions is interconnectivity. The cloud allows us to work in a completely different way than was possible before. In the past, an installer would have to get in their van and make a site visit to investigate any complaints or issues from their customer. Now, this can all be done remotely through SaaS-solutions like Vanderbilt’s SPC Connect, changing the entire service interaction quite dramatically. Vanderbilt wants to continue that evolution. Customers now expect very high levels of service from installers. SaaS-solutions are the perfect enabler to achieve this. With SPC Connect, Vanderbilt is delivering an ecosystem that will allow installers to have a better communication environment with their customers. The latest service release of SPC Connect brings installers closer to their customers by creating a platform where they can communicate more freely with each other. This ability to have more open communication between installer and end user, in a secure mechanism such as SPC Connect, will have a significant impact on increasing the level of service for all parties. Customer notifications Installers can communicate through the SPC Connect network directly to their customers. This feature allows installers to create a message that will appear directly in the user’s app and in their email. The messaging editor provides editing capabilities and the inclusion of links. The installer can also download the list of all customers interested in their message. User restrictions This enhancement delivers the security company greater control of the level of service they wish to offer through SPC Connect. The function allows the security company to define what operations are permitted by a user such as: Blocking Email; Blocking Push Notification; Blocking Alarm Verification; Blocking Mobile App; and Blocking Verification Web. Alarm verification via mobile devices If an SPC panel is part of an SPC Connect installer account, then a new feature will activate on the user device that will allow the user to view verification data. If the SPC panel is not part of a company, or the company has chosen to block this feature, then the users of that panel will not see any change. When this enhancement is enabled, when an alarm occurs that has verification, the user will be able to view the data and talk and listen live to site.Add to Compare

The RLS-3060-SH provides additional detection modes to the L model, such as indoor ceiling protection and vehicle detection mode, and has one major new feature – an extended detection area between 30 and 50m. When used in horizontal detection it creates a pre-warning zone from 30 to 50m radius that is able to detect larger objects such as vehicles. In vertical mode when mounted at 3m off the ground, it can detect a standing or squatting person over 100m making it ideal to pick up intruders, a long wall or fence.
Exhibiting at Security Essen, Hall 6, Booth 6D90. Wireless technology is coming of age, with two-way communication capabilities now cementing wireless’ reliability. Vanderbilt’s SPC Wireless range includes detectors, panic buttons, fobs, and a transceiver, and has a number of benefits intended to make installers’ day-to-day work life easier. The SPC wireless range can extend to 500 meters, proving a more cost effective alternative than having to wire an entire building with cable. This range of 500 meters also cuts down on install time, ultimately cutting down on an installer’s expenses. SPC Wireless devices use the industry-leading Energizer® lithium batteries, meaning an extended battery life of five years. This means installers don’t have to go to site as often to keep changing out batteries, freeing up time for more urgent tasks. Settings for the SPC Wireless range are all configurable over the air. Again, this reduces the need for time-consuming site visits. Most other products require the physical need to flick dipswitches to change commands but Vanderbilt’s SPC Wireless is aimed at convenience first. All-in-all, installs for SPC Wireless are designed to be hassle-free. You just put up the control panel, wire the mains to it, place the wireless detector in position, and you’re good to go. In contrast, a wired solution can take, at a minimum, a day’s work fitting cable. By reducing time on site, Vanderbilt’s SPC Wireless can enable installers to get more work done elsewhere, essentially meaning more profits from more jobs.
Strong wireless signalling, multi-award-winning Enforcer two-way wireless technology and a whole host of intelligent reliability, security and detection features have all gone into the XDL12TT-WE. The first low-mount wireless outdoor detector of the Pyronix range combines multi-award-winning Enforcer two-way wireless technology with dependable external detection protocols, including: Dual-Vision Pet Immune, Tri-Signal Detection Logic and Gaussian Frequency Modulation (GFM), to deliver a highly dependable wireless external detector. IP55 weatherproof rated and consisting of two independent passive infrared (PIR) sensors and one microwave (MW) sensor in one common housing, its Tri-Technology (TT) delivers advanced outdoor protection. This is because, to identify the presence of an intruder, the XDL12TT-WE utilises Tri-Signal Detection Logic alongside TT, whereby all three sensors must be activated sequentially in quick succession to create an alarm. This heightens the detector’s immunity to false alarms and ensures optimum detection performance in external conditions. Along with Tri-Signal Detection Logic and TT, Pyronix has also pre-empted potential false alarm issues from the presence of pets or swaying vegetation, by including Dual-Vision Pet Immune and Anti-Sway Analytics features. Dual-Vision Pet Immune of the XDL12TT-WE consists of its two PIRs having a dedicated volumetric field of view, with the top PIR detecting outwards and up, while the bottom PIR detects outwards and down, without either crossing the central horizontal plane between them. This setup of non-overlapping PIR sensors alongside Tri-Signal Detection Logic, delivers highly secure sequential detection and increases its tolerance to pet immunity. Anti-Sway Analytics digitally filters the environment to distinguish between the movement of trees and plants from the movements of an intruder, so that false alarm activations are kept to an absolute minimum. These external detection protocols then benefit from the advantages of Enforcer two-way wireless technology, with full supervision, anti-jamming and 128-bit wireless protocol encryption, to maximise the new XDL12TT-WE’s reliability; ensuring signals transmitted by the system are protected and any code-grabbing is prevented. Two-way wireless also brings with it a whole host of installation benefits, without the invasive nature of fitting wired peripherals. This increases the efficiency of the installation for our customers, while providing a steadfast detector for end-users. In terms of the wireless signal, the XDL12TT-WE’s high sensitivity receiver is capable of a wireless signal range of up to 1.6km in open space, which reduces the need for repeaters and therefore reduces the installation cost. In addition, the high-sensitivity antenna of the XDL12TT-WE ensures that the signals being transmitted and received are as strong as possible, by utilising GFM to spread the signal, while reducing unwanted noise and harmonics. This enables the outdoor detector to meet stringent European, ETSI and other worldwide standards. When it comes to wireless outdoor security, why not deliver the XDL12TT-WE?
Security Products from Vanderbilt (formerly known as Siemens Security Products) has released a new and updated version of its popular SPCanywhere app, which enables users of intruder detection installations based on the versatile SPC range to monitor and control their systems.

Security is a growing issue for businesses of all sizes, not just because of the potential costs of security breaches (damage to buildings, theft, etc.), but increasingly because of the negative impact security incidents can have on a business's future. Indeed, business recovery is now at the forefront of security concerns. From security to risk management... It is important to limit the time an intruder has inside a building, to prevent theft of assets or valuable commercial data, or damage/corruption of these same assets or data. Intrusion systems have a key role to play in this. Reliable detection provides immediate alerts in case of an attempted unauthorised entry. Alarm transmission over versatile communication channels (PSTN, ISDN, GSM and increasingly IP) ensures alerts are received at the monitoring centre or control room every time. Alarm verification tools enable an appropriate and immediate response to events. Vanderbilt (formerly known as Siemens Security Products) understands that the level of sophistication and functionality required in intrusion systems is driven by the size of the business they cover. The range of Intrunet™ intrusion systems caters for applications of all sizes, from simple intrusion prevention for smaller businesses to more sophisticated functionality in large premises or multi-site operations. The Intrunet™ range of professional intrusion systems offers everything modern security demands and more: compliance with European standards, scalability, modularity, superior detection capability, highest false alarm immunity, functional customisation and integration, as well as support for alarm management and response services, to name but a few. The comprehensive portfolio includes motion detectors for Grade 2 to Grade 4 applications, glass break and seismic detectors with sophisticated signal processing, as well as control panels that provide reliable alarm transmission and flexible on-site or remote alarm verification for all applications. From risk management to operational performance optimisation Many factors affect operational performance and security is increasingly one of them. Material damage, injuries to staff/customers (and the resulting legal implications), disruption to services leading to lost sales opportunities, image loss for the larger organisations (impacting on competitiveness) - all of these and more can be lessened through effective security measures. Studies also show that many of the businesses that have suffered lengthy interruptions following security issues never fully recover. This is why damage limitation is at the heart of any security system. With Intrusion systems, this means adding layers of intrusion detection at every step: from perimeters to buildings, and all the way through to valuable assets. The Vanderbilt (formerly known as Siemens Security Products) Intrunet™ range of internal and external motion detectors, glass break and seismic detectors, builds on in-depth knowledge of sophisticated detection technologies: all offer intelligent signal processing, for reliable intrusion detection and effective discrimination against false alarms. For all indoor and outdoor applications Compliance with international standards Proven performance and reliability Installation-friendly design Choosing the right intrusion system - help is at hand Whilst large organisations tend to be better protected, small to mid-size businesses still often find it hard to invest in security. Regardless of the circumstances, with so many systems to choose from, knowing which will give the right security answer can be a daunting task for end-users, installers and consultants alike. When it comes to intrusion systems, many factors need to be considered, including: demand for system expansion migration to new technologies customisation at an affordable price So intrusion systems must be flexible enough to grow and evolve, without jeopardising the customer's initial investment. To help security professionals choose the appropriate systems for given applications, Vanderbilt (formerly known as Siemens Security Products) has launched the first of its "application" security brochures, which provides a targeted positioning of its intrusion systems within small, medium and large retail applications. Given the trend towards an holistic approach to security from end-users, these brochures also put Intrusion systems in an interoperability context, with practical examples of the security challenges faced, in this first "application" brochure, by retailers of all sizes, and showing how varied security issues can be addressed with the right level of interoperability between access control, intrusion detection, and video surveillance systems.Add to Compare

Johnson Controls recently unveiled the findings of its 2018 Energy Efficiency Indicator (EEI) survey that examined the current and planned investments and key drivers to improve energy efficiency and building systems integration in facilities. Systems integration was identified as one of the top technologies expected to have the biggest impact on the implementation in smart buildings over the next five years, with respondents planning to invest in security, fire and life-safety integrations more so than any other systems integration in the next year. As advanced, connected technologies drive the evolution of smart buildings, security and safety technologies are at the center of more intelligent strategies as they attribute to overall building operations and efficiencies. SourceSecurity.com spoke with Johnson Controls, Building Solutions, North America, VP of Marketing, Hank Monaco, and Senior National Director of Municipal Infrastructure and Smart Cities, Lisa Brown, about the results of the study, smart technology investments and the benefits of a holistic building strategy that integrates security and fire and life-safety systems with core building systems. Q: What is the most striking result from the survey, and what does it mean in the context of a building’s safety and security systems? The results show an increased understanding about the value of integrating safety and security systems with other building systems Hank Monaco: Investment in building system integration increased 23 percent in 2019 compared to 2018, the largest increase of any measure in the survey. When respondents were asked more specifically what systems they we planning to invest in over the next year, fire and life safety integration (61%) and security system integration (58%) were the top two priorities for organisations. The results show an increased understanding about the value of integrating safety and security systems with other building systems to improve overall operations and bolster capabilities beyond the intended function of an individual system. Q: The survey covers integration of fire, life safety and security systems as part of "smart building" systems. How do smarter buildings increase the effectiveness of security and life safety systems? Hank Monaco: A true “smart building” integrates all building systems – security, fire and life-safety, HVAC, lighting etc. – to create a connected, digital infrastructure that enables individual technologies to be more intelligent and perform more advanced functions beyond what they can do on their own. For example, when sensors and video surveillance are integrated with lighting systems, if abnormal activity is detected on the building premise, key stakeholders can be automatically alerted to increase emergency response time. With integrated video surveillance, they also gain the ability to access surveillance footage remotely to assess the situation. When sensors and video surveillance are integrated with lighting systems abnormal activity on the premise can automatically be detected Q: How can integrated security and life safety systems contribute to greater energy efficiency in a smart building environment? Hank Monaco: Security, fire and life-safety systems can help to inform other building systems about how a facility is used, high-trafficked areas and the flow of occupants within a building. Integrated building solutions produce a myriad of data that can be leveraged to increase operational efficiencies. From an energy efficiency standpoint, actionable insights are particularly useful for areas that are not frequently occupied or off-peak hours as you wouldn’t want to heat or cool an entire building for just one person coming in on the weekend. When video surveillance is integrated with HVAC and lighting systems, it can monitor occupancy in a room or hallway. The video analytics can then control the dimming of lights and the temperature depending on occupant levels in a specific vicinity. Similarly, when access control systems are integrated with these same systems, once a card is presented to the reader, it can signal the lights or HVAC system to turn on. In this example, systems integration can ultimately help enable energy savings in the long run. Security and life safety systems contribute to help enable greater energy efficiency and energy savings in the long run Q: What other benefits of integration are there (beyond the core security and life safety functions)? Hank Monaco: Beyond increased security, fire and life-safety functions, the benefits of systems integration include: Increased data and analytics to garner a holistic, streamlined understanding of how systems function and how to improve productivity Ability to track usage to increase efficiency and reduce operational costs Enhanced occupant experience and comfort Increased productivity and workflow to support business objectives Smart-ready, connected environment that can support future technology advancements Q: What lesson or action point should a building owner/operator take from the survey? How can the owner of an existing building leverage the benefits of the smart building environment incrementally and absent a complete overhaul? Lisa Brown: Johnson Controls Energy Efficiency Indicator found that 77% of organisations plan to make investments in energy efficiency and smarter building technology this year. This percentage demonstrates an increased understanding of the benefits of smart buildings and highlights the proactive efforts building owners are taking to adopt advanced technologies. There is an increased understanding that buildings operate more effectively when different building systems are connected As smart buildings continue to evolve, more facilities are beginning to explore opportunities to advance their own spaces. A complete overhaul of legacy systems is not necessary as small investments today can help position a facility to more easily adopt technologies at scale in the future. As a first step, it’s important for building owners to conduct an assessment and establish a strategy that defines a comprehensive set of requirements and prioritises use-cases and implementations. From there, incremental investments and updates can be made over a realistic timeline. Q: What is the ROI of smart buildings? Lisa Brown: As demonstrated by our survey, there is an increased understanding that buildings operate more effectively when different building systems are connected. The advanced analytics and more streamlined data that is gathered through systems integration can provide the building-performance metrics to help better understand the return on investment (ROI) of the building systems. This data is used to better understand the environment and make assessments and improvements overtime to increase efficiencies. Moreover, analytics and data provide valuable insights into where action is needed and what type of return can be expected from key investments.
Across the country, law enforcement officers are finding it increasingly difficult to respond to the near overwhelming number of calls coming from security alarms. Police departments commonly define a false alarm as a call, which upon investigation, shows no evidence of criminal activity, such as broken windows, forced doors, items missing, or people injured. While false alarms bog down police, they can also negatively impact customers and integrators. End users can expect hefty fines for false alarm responses, and when these customers receive large bills from the city, many turn to installers, dealers, and even manufacturers expecting them to accept the responsibility and pay the bill. What first brought the issue of alarm verification to your attention? It is crucial to both see a situation and concurrently listen to any corresponding sounds to gain full insight I’ve been aware of the problem of false alarms for about 5 years. I believed audio capture, through microphone deployment, could be an active part of the solution when used as a second source for indicating ‘out of the norm’ activity and as an equal component with the video surveillance technology. In 2015, I found similarly minded security professionals when introduced to the Partnership for Priority Verified Alarm Response. After reading PPVAR’s paper on ‘Audio Verified Alarms Best Practices; [April 2015],’ I knew that the Partnership was on to something important. In our lives, two of the five senses we count on day-in and day-out are sight and sound. It is crucial to both see a situation and concurrently listen to any corresponding sounds to gain full insight. What is the false alarm rate? In 2016, the International Association of Chiefs of Police reported that over 98 percent of all alarm calls in the United States were false. This number is obviously staggering, and something we need to work towards correcting. Why did this issue resonate so strongly with you? When I first investigated this issue, I was sure that the security industry would have already recognised this and was acting to ensure improved alarm verification, preferably through a combination of audio and video technologies. However, I quickly saw that this was not the case, or even close to the norm. I have questioned the rationale behind the lack of adoption and found the deployment of audio is often hindered by the concern of privacy. I’ve spearheaded many initiatives to explain the monitoring policies surrounding audio As CEO of Louroe Electronics, I’ve spearheaded many initiatives to explain the monitoring policies surrounding audio. I’ve had to reassure many security personnel and customers how the law supports the use of audio in public places as long as there is no expectation of privacy. By dispelling fears with facts around deploying and implementing audio sensors, customers can confidently include audio in their surveillance systems and gain a more effective security solution. Who is affected by this? Truth be told, everyone from the end user to the manufacturer is affected by this issue. Not to mention the strain this puts on law enforcement who are tired of ‘wasting time’ and effort out in the field on these nuisance alerts. When an end user receives a bill for their false alarm, many of them will immediately blame the integrator and or the monitoring center for a faulty set up and management and expect the integrator to remedy the situation, including carry the burden of paying the fines. The integrator, on the other hand, will turn to the manufacturer, assuming faulty equipment and installation instructions; therefore, looking for reimbursement for the cost. What is the average false alarm fee? It depends on many factors, and especially your first responder assigned location for responseIt depends on many factors, and especially your first responder assigned location for response. According to the Urban Institute, fees generally range from $25-$100 for the first offense, rising as high as a few thousand dollars per false alarm if a location has a large number in a single year. What’s worse, in extreme cases, alarm systems may even be blacklisted by the police dispatch center if they have raised too many false alarms in the past. Why do you believe audio is the ideal technology for secondary source verification? Video surveillance has been the main option for security monitoring and alarm validation for decades, however industry professionals are realising that video alone is not enough. Video only tells half of the story, by adding audio capture, the responsible party gains a turnkey solution with the ability to gather additional evidence to verify alerts and expand overall awareness. In reality, audio’s range is greater than the field of view for a camera. Sound pickup is 360 degrees, capturing voices, gunshots, breaking glass, sirens, or other important details that a fixed camera many not see. How would a secondary source verification system work with audio? Using a video monitoring solution equipped with audio, the microphone will pick up the sounds at the time a visual alert or alarm is triggered. If embedded with classification analytics, the microphone will send alerts for specific detected sounds. The captured audio, and any notifications are immediately sent to the monitoring station, where trained personnel can listen to the sound clip, along with live audio and video from their station. When law enforcement receives a validated alarm, they can better prioritise the response From here, an informed decision can then be made about the validity of the alarm, along with what the current threat is at the location. If the alarm is in fact valid, the information is then passed along to the law enforcement within minutes. When law enforcement receives a validated alarm, they can better prioritise the response. It also provides more information in a forensic evaluation. Are there any additional resources you would suggest looking into? Yes, we would suggest looking into the following to see a few different perspectives on the matter: NSA Support For 2018 Model Ordinance For Alarm Management and False Alarm Reduction Partnership for Priority Verified Alarm Response Support for the Term “Verified Alarm” and Prioritising Verified Alarm Responses Urban Institute Opportunities for Police Cost Savings without Sacrificing Service Quality: Reducing False Alarms
If you’re responsible for a medium or large-sized office, it’s more important than ever that you have access to a means of ensuring people’s safety, managing risks and fraud, and protecting property. Any security system that you employ must therefore meet the most demanding commercial requirements of today’s offices, and tomorrow’s. This means thinking beyond a basic intrusion system and specifying a comprehensive solution that integrates smart features like access control, video management and intelligent video analytics. Because only then will you have security you can trust, and detection you can depend on. Reliable entry management Access control systems have been developed that guarantee reliable entry management for indoors and outdoors Access control is becoming increasingly important for ensuring the security of office buildings, but as the modern workplace evolves you’re unlikely to find a one-size-fits-all solution. Today, it’s commonplace to control entry to individual rooms or restricted areas and cater to more flexible working hours that extend beyond 9 to 5, so a modern and reliable access control system that exceeds the limitations of standard mechanical locks is indispensable. Access control systems have been developed that guarantee reliable entry management for indoors and outdoors. They use state-of-the-art readers and controllers to restrict access to certain areas, ensuring only authorised individuals can get in. With video cameras located within close proximity you can then monitor and record any unauthorised access attempts. The system can also undertake a people-count to ensure only one person has entered using a single pass. Scalable hardware components As previously mentioned, there is no one-size-fits-all system, but thanks to the scalability of the hardware components, systems can adapt to changing security requirements. For example, you can install Bosch’s Access Professional Edition (APE) software for small to medium-sized offices, then switch to the more comprehensive Access Engine (ACE) of the Building Integration System (BIS) when your security requirements grow. And, because the hardware stays the same, any adaptations are simple. APE’s ‘permanent open’ functionality allows employees and guests to enter designated areas easily and conveniently The APE software administers up to 512 readers, 10,000 cardholders and 128 cameras, making it suitable for small to medium-sized buildings. With functions like badge enrollment, entrance control monitoring and alarm management with video verification it provides a high level of security and ensures only authorised employees and visitors are able to enter certain rooms and areas. Of course, there will always be situations when, for convenience, you need certain doors to be permanently open, such as events and open days. APE’s ‘permanent open’ functionality allows employees and guests to enter designated areas easily and conveniently. Growing security needs You switch to the Bosch Building Integration System (BIS), without having to switch hardware (it stays the same, remember?). This is a software solution that manages subsystems like access control, video surveillance, fire alarm, public address or intrusion systems, all on a single platform. It is designed for offices with multiple sites and for large companies with a global presence. Bosch Building Integration System (BIS) manages subsystems like access control, video surveillance, fire alarm, public address or intrusion systems, all on a single platform The BIS Access Engine (ACE) administers up to 10,000 readers and 80 concurrent workplace clients per server, and 200,000 cardholders per AMC. An additional benefit to security officers is the ability to oversee cardholders and authorisations through the central cardholder management functionality and monitor all access events and alarms from every connected site. For consistency, multi-site cardholder information and access authorisations can be created on a central server and replicated across all connected site servers, which means the cardholder information is always up to date and available in every location. Intrusion alarm systems Bosch B Series and G Series intrusion control panels can also send personal notifications via text or email Securing all perimeter doors is vital when protecting employees, visitors and intellectual property. Doors are opened and closed countless times during business hours, and when intentionally left open, your office is vulnerable to theft, and the safety of your employees is compromised. For this reason, intrusion control panels have been developed with advanced features to ensure all perimeter doors are properly closed, even when the system is not armed. If a door remains open for a period of time (you can specify anything from one second to 60 minutes), the system can be programmed to automatically take action. For example, it can activate an audible alert at the keypad to give employees time to close the door. Then, if it is still not closed, it will send a report to a monitoring center or a text directly to the office manager, and when integrated with video it can even send an image of the incident to a mobile device. Customised intrusion systems What about people who need to access your building outside of working hours, like cleaning crews? Your intruder system allows you to customise the way it operates with a press of a button or swipe of a card. This level of control enables you to disarm specific areas, bypass points and unlock doors for cleaning crews or after-hours staff, whilst keeping server rooms, stock rooms and executive offices safe and secure. Bosch B Series and G Series intrusion control panels can also send personal notifications via text or email. You can program the panel to send you opening, closing, and other event alerts, which means you don’t have to be on-site to keep track of movements in and around your facility. Video management system A video management system will add a next level of security to your access control system Every office building has different video security requirements depending on the location, size and nature of the business. Some offices may only need basic functions such as recording and playback, whereas others may need full alarm functionalities and access to different sites. A video management system will add a next level of security to your access control system. For example, the video system can provide seamless management of digital video, audio and data across IP networks for small to large office buildings. It is fully integrated and can be scaled according to your specific requirements. The entry-level BVMS Viewer is suitable for small offices that need to access live and archived video from their recording solutions. With forensic search it enables you to access a huge recording database and scan quickly for a specific security event. For larger offices, embellished security functions for the BVMS Professional version can manage up to 2,000 cameras and offers full alarm and event management Full alarm and event management For larger offices, embellished security functions for the BVMS Professional version can manage up to 2,000 cameras and offers full alarm and event management. It’s also resilient enough to remain operative should both Management and Recording Servers fail. Large multi-national companies often need access to video surveillance systems at numerous sites, which is why BVMS Professional allows you to access live and archived video from over 10,000 sites across multiple time zones from a single BVMS server. When integrated with the BVMS Enterprise version multiple BVMS Professional systems can be connected so every office in the network can be viewed from one security center, which provides the opportunity to monitor up to 200,000 cameras, regardless of their location. Essential Video Analytics Video analytics acts as the brain of your security system, using metadata to add sense and structure to any video footage you capture If your strategy is to significantly improve levels of security, video analytics is an essential part of the plan. It acts as the brain of your security system, using metadata to add sense and structure to any video footage you capture. In effect, each video camera in your network becomes smart to the degree that it can understand and interpret what it is seeing. You simply set certain alarm rules, such as when someone approaches a perimeter fence, and video analytics alerts security personnel the moment a rule is breached. Smart analytics have been developed in two formats. Essential Video Analytics is ideal for small and medium-sized commercial buildings and can be used for advanced intrusion detection, such as loitering alarms, and identifying a person or object entering a pre-defined field. It also enables you to instantly retrieve the right footage from hours of stored video, so you can deal with potential threats the moment they happen. Essential Video Analytics also goes beyond security to help you enforce health and safety regulations such as enforcing no parking zones, detecting blocked emergency exits or ensuring no one enters or leaves a building via an emergency exit; all measures that can increase the safety of employees and visitors inside the building. Intelligent Video Analytics Intelligent Video Analytics have the unique capability of analysing video content over large distances Intelligent Video Analytics have the unique capability of analysing video content over large distances, which makes it ideally suited to more expansive office grounds or securing a perimeter fence. It can also differentiate between genuine security events and known false triggers such as snow, rain, hail and moving tree branches that can make video data far more difficult to interpret. The final piece in your security jigsaw is an intelligent camera. The latest range of Bosch ’i’ cameras have the image quality, data security measures, and bitrate reduction of <80%. And, video analytics is standard. Be prepared for what can’t be predicted. Although no-one can fully predict what kind of security-related event is around the corner, experience and expertise will help make sure you’re always fully prepared.
