IFS network switch discovery service With the new TruVision Navigator 7, users can configure and manage multiple TruPortal access control panels from Interlogix, add panel and door locations to a built-in interactive map and link cameras to doors to receive event notifications with live pop-up video verification. The new software also offers a built-in IFS network switch discovery service that provides switch login and configuration through its native web client. “We’re continuing to invest in more tightly connected solutions that add increased value, convenience and functionality for our customers” “TruVision Navigator 7 is now more than just video management – it’s a complete, connected security system with cameras, recorders, network switches, and access control functionality,” said Michael Chiavacci, General Manager, Interlogix, U.S. and Canada. “We’re continuing to invest in more tightly connected solutions that add increased value, convenience and functionality for our customers.” New advanced video features Other new advanced video features in TruVision Navigator 7 include: The ability to drag and drop websites for native viewing and navigating in the viewer panel Real-time device bandwidth monitoring Logical device views and filtering that provides smart event management Continued operation in a client-server configuration when the server is offline TruVision Navigator 7 can continue to be used as a powerful VMS. It offers recording of 360-degree cameras by de-warping the images natively within the software; customisable viewing panes that can be saved for one-click retrieval; remote device configuration capabilities and system health monitoring service that can reduce costly on-site maintenance service calls. Fully-featured web-based access control Integrated with TruPortal, the system can provide a fully-featured, web-based access control solution, scalable to secure up to 64 doors and with the ability to seamlessly add the full range of IFS high-performance networking switches, users will be able to meet the needs of many demanding security environments. “This integration equips our customers with a powerful centralised security solution that’s perfect for mid-sized commercial applications and small campus environments,” said Chiavacci. TruVision Navigator 7 will be available for download early this spring.
Navigator 6 offers new features to streamline video security operations for TruVision video cameras and recorders installations Interlogix, a global leader in security and life-safety solutions, introduced TruVision Navigator 6, the latest version of its video management software, at the ASIS International security conference. TruVision Navigator 6 offers new features and design to streamline video security operations for high-volume installations of TruVision video cameras and recorders. Interlogix is part of UTC Climate, Controls & Security, a unit of United Technologies Corp. TruVision Navigator 6 software offers an easy-to-use interface featuring tabs for up to 10 surveillance viewing panes. Each pane is customisable, can be saved, and with a click can quickly provide operators with the most relevant information regarding their video security operations. One tab can also be dedicated to monitor and immediately display alarm events. “Interlogix continues to add convenience and functionality to the proven TruVision Navigator platform, offering scalable, centralised and remote video management capabilities ranging from a small, single recorder (DVR/NVR) installation to deployment of multiple recorders and cameras,” said Mike Chiavacci, general manager, video solutions, Interlogix. The software also allows recording from 360-degree-cameras. It de-warps the images natively in the software – eliminating the need to transmit all video streams from the camera – reducing bandwidth requirements. The new maps feature allows facility floor plans to be added, along with camera icons, making specific live and recorded video more convenient to locate. The TruVision Navigator 6 platform continues to offer: Flexible technology incorporating analogue and IP compatibility to meet current and future needs Remote device configuration to reduce costly on-site maintenance service calls A system health monitoring and diagnostic service that automatically polls for data to maintain constant system uptime The video management software also protects legacy system investment and accommodates future growth with backward compatibility of popular TruVision cameras and recording devices dating back more than a decade. “TruVision Navigator 6 makes it easier and more convenient than ever to streamline video security operations for institutions such as schools, retail stores, bank branches, warehouses, entertainment venues, critical infrastructure and geographically dispersed organisations,” Chiavacci said. TruVision Navigator 6 demonstrated at ASIS 2015, booth #3901, and will be available for download early this fall.
The new IP-based TVN 10 kit offers easy installation of video systems for small commercial operations Interlogix, a leader in security and life safety solutions for residential and commercial enterprises, is now offering the new TruVision NVR 10 (TVN 10) IP-based recorder, bundled with four cameras for easy ordering and installation of video systems for small commercial operations. Interlogix is a part of UTC Building & Industrial Systems, a unit of United Technologies Corp. The TVN 10 kit, available in four- or eight-channel models, features megapixel resolution at analogue-system prices without the need to deploy an expensive IT infrastructure. The unit offers an all-in-one design with a power over ethernet (PoE) switch built into the chassis and full control via front panel buttons and a mouse, or through TVRMobile software applications. The TVN 10 kit comes bundled with four IP cameras ready for immediate installation and the eight-channel model can be expanded with the purchase of additional cameras. “This kit helps our dealer and integrator customers enter smaller commercial segments where megapixel technology was previously considered too expensive or difficult to deploy,” said Mike Chiavacci, general manager, video solutions, Interlogix and Lenel. Also released is the TruVision DVR 12 (TVR 12), an analogue digital video recorder with four-, eight- or 16-channel capabilities and utilising H.264 video compression technology to deliver real-time recording per channel, up to 960 by 480 resolution. The recorder can also be controlled remotely via the TVRMobile smartphone/tablet app. A video kit based on the TVR 12 recorder will be available later this year. “We’ve responded to our customers’ needs by creating kits with the most frequently requested recorder and camera configurations in a single box,” said Chiavacci. “This makes both the ordering and installation process simple and fast. Once the installer opens the box, they can have a high-quality, four-camera IP or analogue system up and running in minutes.” IFS Layer 3 switches, which deliver high-power PoE+ and 10-gigabit performance for enterprise-level video applications, are also available. The IFS switch is ideal for use in campus environments or other locations with multiple buildings requiring network segmentation in a large IP video system. “Interlogix continues to offer innovative IP video and transmission solutions, from the smallest business installations to the largest enterprise users,” said Chiavacci. Both the TVN 10 kit and IFS Layer 3 switches are available immediately through authorised Interlogix dealers and distributors throughout North America. The TVR 12 analogue kits will be available later this year. For a demonstration of these products, visit Interlogix at ASIS 2014, booth 1311, Sept. 29–Oct. 1.
