Chiron’s IRIS alarm communication system featured at the Security 2010

IP alarm transmission system, IRIS, from Chiron makes Security 2010 debut
The IRIS Touch 200 and 400 series diallers are now approved to AS/NZ2201:5 - 2008
Europe's best selling IP alarm transmission system, Chiron's IRIS system, featured for the first time at the Security 2010 Exhibition and Conference in Sydney, Australia (1st to 3rd September).

Chiron showcased its award-winning technology alongside Security Distributors Australia, its partner for IRIS solutions in Australian markets.

Chiron's Managing Director Ian Tredinnick was among the expert speakers at the Security 2010 seminar session (11am, Wednesday 1st September), discussing the latest developments in IP alarm monitoring.

There are already more than 40,000 IRIS units installed worldwide, including Hong Kong, China and Papua New Guinea, monitored by 180 ARCs, making it the most popular technology for IP alarm transmission.

It is unique in being independently certified by the VdS testing house, to EN 50131, 50136 and EN 54-21 standards and the IRIS Touch 200 and 400 series diallers are now approved to AS/NZ2201:5 - 2008 Class 4 GPRS and Class 5 IP.

"Around the world the IRIS system is increasingly being adopted by banks, retail chains, corporations and a wide range of alarm system users including military and police," says Wayne Krahner, Managing Director of Security Distributors Australia.

IRIS Secure Apps takes alarm monitoring services to a new level

"It offers very attractive advantages to users in Australia, including the ability upgrade from expensive fixed line monitoring to a solution that is more affordable, but also more secure and powerful. It also offers a secure end-to-end solution with no 3rd party servers or costs."

Earlier this year Chiron introduced the IRIS Secure Apps system, which has been short-listed as Innovation of the Year in the prestigious Security Excellence Awards (London).

IRIS Secure Apps takes alarm monitoring services to a new level, with greatly enhanced control and functionality for all users, including ARCs, installation engineers, maintenance teams and end-user security managers.

IRIS Secure Apps is the only signalling system which allows the security manager to directly monitor how well their signals are performing, both real-time and historically. It allows him or her to directly access management reports and conduct audit trails, drilling down into data for individual sites or taking an overview of alarm system performance area by area, or globally.

It also allows engineers to install, commission and maintain monitored alarms without having to wait for the direct intervention of a member of staff from the ARC. This makes diagnostics and maintenance much easier and faster.

Designed to ‘de-skill' and de-mystify alarm signal maintenance, this is the only system in which functions are broken down into easy-to-use ‘Apps', each dedicated to a particular function. This makes it easy for all users to handle the specific functions which they are entitled to work on.

IRIS Secure Apps allows the ARC to grant different levels of secure access to different users. Access can be granted on a time-limited basis if required, with various security levels. It is also the only system in which detailed access can be securely gained via a web-enabled laptop, phone or similar device.

"Before IRIS Secure Apps no system fully addressed needs of all the parties relying on remote monitoring, including the end-user, the ARC, the installation engineer and the police," explains Ian Tredinnick. "Our technology not only delivers new benefits to all of them, it lays the foundation for further advances which are already being developed."
