ABP Technology, a value-add specialty distributor for IP technology solutions, has obtained the exclusive rights to distribute AlarmReady™ in the United States. AlarmReady is the first universal alarm system video verification solution designed to frictionlessly attach to any IP video surveillance system. “AlarmReady is an exciting opportunity for system integrators to deliver a video verification solution – for any alarm system users may have – that enables higher situational awareness, faster emergency response, and fewer false alarms,” said ABPTech CEO Robert Messer. AlarmReady is a cloud-based solution designed for commercial buildings or higher-end homes. Its first delivery will be for MOBOTIX camera systems as a FREE beta feature included with MxLINQ™ – the mobile universal viewer, alert, and control tool for MOBOTIX surveillance system end users. Immediate video access ActivitySensor technology helps eliminate false alarms and AlarmReady can quickly discern which cameras to show As soon as an alarm is activated at any monitored location the solution provides immediate video verification to users and owners or, if configured, to a compatible monitoring center. AlarmReady sends users alerts directly via phone, tablet, or computer and can send a text message to subscribed users to make sure the alarm is not missed. Users will see the location of the alarm as well as have immediate video access to the cameras on site that shows activity at that time. “AlarmReady together with decentralised intelligent MOBOTIX cameras and MxLINQ Cloud Access provides the highest situational awareness in the market,” said Messer. MOBOTIX-patented ActivitySensor technology helps eliminate false alarms and AlarmReady can quickly discern which cameras to show. MxLINQ, a cloud access solution for MOBOTIX, enables the user to immediately view and forward video footage to law enforcement – including a live-link by SMS or email – to the affected location. Powerful cloud-based platform AlarmReady is a flexible and powerful cloud-based platform that can be integrated with professional monitoring systems “People are nervous in alarm situations and AlarmReady simplifies this process and guides end users directly to the cameras they need to see,” said Messer. “AlarmReady provides additional situational awareness, user-friendliness, and overall simplicity of the system. Primary design factors give the end user as seamless an experience as possible.” AlarmReady can help prevent further harm or damage by enabling users to take a variety of actions via the MOBOTIX system. For example, users can play dissuasive Audio Messages. If set-up by a system integrator, users may also have access to turning on lights, locking doors, closing gates, or any other features on their IoT/surveillance system right then and there. This makes AlarmReady a flexible and powerful cloud-based platform that can be integrated with professional monitoring systems, offering end users and businesses a unique hybrid solution. Take a closer look at this exciting feature at the upcoming MOBOTIX Global Partner Conference in October in Mainz, Germany and Americas Partner Summit in January 2020.

ABP Technology, global specialty distributor for IP technology solutions, is now distributing end-to-end environmental monitoring and access control solutions from Kentix, the manufacturer of innovative smart building security products. Kentix Access Control solutions Kentix products available from ABP Tech include the Kentix MultiSensor and Kentix Access Control solutions Kentix products available from ABP Tech include the Kentix MultiSensor and Kentix Access Control solutions. ABP Tech serves as the Master Distributor of Kentix products across the Americas. “Half of all IT outages have a physical cause like fire or water damage and environmental damage downtimes are much longer – and more expensive – to fix”, said ABP Tech CEO & President, Robert Messer. “Just like a firewall protects data, the Kentix MultiSensor protects a network’s physical infrastructure in a compact, and very powerful, device,” he said. Kentix MultiSensor monitoring solution The Kentix MultiSensor is an end-to-end environmental monitoring solution that protects critical assets, valuable storage areas, technical systems, and IT and communication equipment by detecting 37 types of physical threats that can lead to catastrophic events. It can replace multiple individual solutions like temperature and humidity control, alarm, intrusion or presence detection, smoke, gases and/or early fire detection – saving about two-thirds of the typical cost – while channeling these alarms in a more targeted way. The Kentix MultiSensor is completely IP-based and is scalable up to 500 units. Impressively, the Kentix MultiSensor, an all-in-one environmental monitoring solution has received renowned ISO27001 certification. ISO27001 is the European gold standard in protection requirements for Information Security Management Systems (ISMS). “Moving toward stringent standards like ISO27001 – even though they aren’t yet a requirement in the United States – can help security providers enact the end-to-end protection that is so critical to comprehensive security operations,” said Messer. Kentix DoorLock Kentix Access Control solutions including the Kentix DoorLock are as equally as impressive as the MultiSensor" “Kentix Access Control solutions including the Kentix DoorLock are as equally as impressive as the MultiSensor,” said Messer. “Kentix offers less expensive access control than competing systems, requires less equipment and takes less installation time – with no software fees and no servers,” he said. PoE and dual-door controller Kentix Access Control includes PoE to the dual-door controller smart edge-device and door card-reader/keypad units running an embedded, license-free, zero-cost software solution with Active Directory that can scale up to hundreds of locks. The minimalistic design of Kentix’s Access Control solution makes installation fast and simple and serves an aesthetic purpose; it’s a slick, small cube that is made to operate efficiently. It’s also designed to secure the physical IP network since the PoE connection stays inside and does not go to the door reader. This eliminates the threat of vandals or attempts to infiltrate a network via tapping into an RJ45. Software and system integration Kentix’s MultiSensor and Access Control products can be used separately or together since the Kentix Access Control system interfaces directly into the Kentix MultiSensor environmental monitoring system. All doors controlled by Kentix can also be linked to nearby Mobotix or Axis IP video surveillance cameras and programmed to record video of all access control events for easy auditing and referencing. “We’re excited to be able to bring environmental monitoring and access control products and support to system integrators and dealers seeking innovative and comprehensive security solutions from quality manufacturers like Kentix,” said Messer.
