Axis Communications, a provider of network video, introduces its new AXIS D2050-VE Network Radar Detector at ASIS International. Radar technology is used for accurate and reliable area detection of moving objects in different light and weather conditions. The technology is a nice complement to Axis cameras with video motion detection, like PTZ cameras, and is designed to integrate with Axis video management systems (VMS). Additionally, the AXIS D2050-VE Network Radar Detector was named a recipient of the Security's Best Award at this morning’s ASIS Accolades 2017 award ceremony.
“We’re excited to release the AXIS D2050-VE Network Radar Detector as it expands our product portfolio and most importantly, addresses customer needs for reliable perimeter and area detection,” says Fredrik Nilsson, VP, Americas, Axis Communications, Inc. “Radar helps close a gap in security systems as it offers great area coverage, detects movement with high accuracy and reduces false alarms.”
Outdoor radar motion detector
Vandal-proof and suitable for outdoor use, AXIS D2050-VE can deliver real-time information about the position, speed, angle, and size of a moving object. With a longer range than passive infrared sensors, it covers a wide field of detection, while minimising the number of false alarms triggered by spiders, small animals, moving shadows and light reflections, typically picked up by video motion detection. The radar motion detector can be set to trigger camera recording, activate a horn speaker or a light for deterrence and improved visual confirmation in cameras.
Axis’ network radar detector can be used as a standalone product or as part of a surveillance system. Given its open interface, it is compatible with Axis cameras and can be easily integrated with video management systems from the hundreds of partners in the Axis Developer Partner (ADP) program or Axis Camera Station for straightforward management and maintenance.
Network radar technology
Axis’ first detector with network radar technology, AXIS D2050-VE, is an affordable, wall-mounted detector primarily designed for outdoor use with a wide detection coverage of 120 degrees and 164 feet. It is powered by Power over Ethernet Plus (PoE+) for simple installation and has IP66, IK08 and NEMA 4X ratings for tough environments. The detector can be operated in temperatures ranging from -40°F to 140°F.
“Compared to simple motion detectors, AXIS D2050-VE provides additional insight on detected objects, which allows for auto tracking with Axis PTZ cameras,” says Ryan Zatolokin, Senior Technologist, Axis Communications, Inc. “Customers can now easily add award-winning radar technology to their existing or new surveillance systems to protect their premises.”
Event and visitor safety
In August, the Little League World Series used a radar unit to keep players and fans safe during the event. “Little League International is proud to work with some of the leaders in the security and surveillance industry to provide a safe, fun experience for the visitors to the Little League Baseball World Series each summer. The radar system allowed us to provide unique coverage in areas that were typically difficult to monitor and enhanced our security and surveillance for the players, families, and fans at this year’s World Series,” says James Ferguson, Assistant Director of Risk Management, Safety, Little League Baseball, Incorporated.
AXIS D2050-VE will be available in October 2017 through Axis’ standard distribution channels at a suggested retail price of $1299 and will be on display at ASIS at Axis’ booth #4032.
