The HawkEye Effect has released its new HawkEye Site mapping module that can be easily integrated into security systems and video management software such as Milestone XProtect. In addition, the module incorporates IP cameras and sensors like Optex Redscan IP laser detectors, which can provide the precise coordinates of an intrusion. As part of the HawkEye suite of products, the software can then trigger CCTV PTZ cameras to track and record the intruder real-time, at higher zoom levels providing crucial visual detail.
To provide complete situational awareness, security personnel can access multiple camera feeds and sensor reads with a click within a single screen of the VMS. The software also allows links to alarms or networks for additional logical security measures, such as locking doors, disabling access controls, or shutting down machinery, etc., in the precise area of the intruder’s location.
“With the HawkEye Site mapping module, integrators can build a custom map tool that shows positions of cameras and sensor fields in a single image. The ability to locate the intrusion precisely allows cameras to zoom in faster and track the intrusion more accurately and in detail. This feature can also be used in vertical planes, which adds tremendous capabilities to protecting high-value wall space,” says Jeff Blair, The HawkEye Effect CEO.
By taking intrusion detection and detection to the next level, the new The HawkEye Site mapping module is ideal for wide area surveillance including cities, school districts/open campuses, hospitals, substations, correctional facilities, industrial complexes, chemical plants, and energy fields.
