Eagle Eye Networks

Smart Video Search

Eagle Eye Networks Smart Video Search Eagle Eye Networks has introduced Eagle Eye Smart Video Search, a new feature for all customers to make searching for video as fast and easy as searching the web. Built into the Eagle Eye Cloud VMS, the feature allows customers to search across all cameras and all locations and find the exact video they’re looking for, and quickly share video clips. There is no extra subscription fee, and no special cameras, hardware or local installation are required. Similar to a web search, customers type in descriptions such as “man with blue shirt”, “person with backpack”, or “white Toyota car”. Results can be narrowed down by date, time, location or camera. Eagle Eye uses AI to index video in near real time, making the video searchable almost instantly, and delivering fast, accurate results, says the company. Business owners and security directors can use Smart Video Search to set up real-time alerts to notify them of important or problematic situations. Another feature of Search is "re-identification,” – the ability to identify a person of interest and follow them across all cameras.

2N

IP Intercom integration with Johnson controls C•CURE 9000 system

Now a member of the Johnson Controls Security Products Connected Partner Program, 2N has announced its ‘seamless’ integration of IP intercoms with the 300+ devices and technologies that are part of the Johnson Controls C•CURE 9000 system.
The benefits of the new partnership are said to be a clear graphic interface from which the operator can initiate a call with a person standing at the entrance of a building, along with 24/7 monitoring of the status of connected devices. Users can also view the status of calls and security alarms in the event log, while notifications and the automatic linking of events from the intercom to the access control, video management and other systems can support improved efficiency.

For installers, it means they are said to have direct integration with plugins between 2N and C•CURE, calls from the intercom and the main station can be made directly via an SIP call or SIP Proxy, and alarms can be linked via the intercom.

 

Abloy UK

Cumulus Controller for keyless access control

The new Cumulus Controller is designed to enable mobile access for a wide variety of security products, allowing organisations to upgrade their doors to operate without keys. As it’s Bluetooth-connected, Cumulus opens most electric locks and other electronic door locking devices with a digital key on a mobile app, instead of a physical credential such as a key, card or fob. The controller works with both Abloy products and hardware of any brand, using compatible wiring. This small device can be installed inside a cabinet or behind a door, which means the locking mechanism is concealed and is therefore difficult to manipulate from the outside, offering enhanced security.

Designed for commercial properties and public spaces, the controller can be managed with Abloy OS INCEDO or by integrating with a third-party system. The solution is said to offer well documented application programming interfaces (APIs) and mobile software development kits (SDKs) for easy integration and partner solutions. Cumulus tracks usage, recording opening and locking events automatically, and these audit trails can be accessed from the management system.

 

Inner Range

Enhancements for Integriti

Inner Range has announced further enhancements to its flagship product Integriti, including becoming ONVIF Conformant and providing built-in visitor management capabilities. Inner Range’s enterprise-level intelligent access and security system was recently updated to be an ONVIF-Conformant product. Available for new and existing customers, this means operators can connect ONVIF Conformant IP CCTV cameras directly to the Integriti, without the need for a network recorder or video management system for basic tasks, such as live video streaming, event monitoring and exporting current frames.

The system can also now integrate with MOBOTIX HUB cameras, and an existing interface with Milestone provides more advanced options for operators too. Another development allows basic visitor management to be carried out directly within Integriti via a dedicated interface. Default properties and permissions can be set up for different types of visitors, said to make it easier for users to create suitable credentials, and manage current visitors on site. This is available for Integriti customers with ‘business’ or ‘corporate’ software options.

Other enhancements include being able to create QR code credentials for visitors directly within the security system, without the need for a visitor management system, as well as new integrations with STid Bluetooth door readers, and Dormakaba wireless locks.

Peoplesafe

Alert mass notification tool

Technology-led employee safety specialist, Peoplesafe, has unveiled a mass notification tool designed for instant communication with employees in a crisis. Peoplesafe Alert enables organisations to send and track critical safety messages to thousands of employees simultaneously, overriding phones set to silent or do not disturb and, if necessary, using geofencing capabilities to only communicate with those in a certain location. Designed to be used in a crisis situation, the tool can be operated in real time and messages cannot be edited or forwarded to protect the credibility of the organisation and guarantee that the information is current, correct and constantly controlled. Administrators of the service are said to also have the power to delete communications with outdated information to avoid any confusion which is imperative in a rapidly developing situation.

With its own platform, the app can sit on multiple devices and operating systems which guarantees that the priority messages will cut through any other conflicting or distracting messages at the time of an emergency, asserts the provider. Although UK based, the Peoplesafe Alert service is available in all countries and languages, meaning that employees can be targeted by country if required. This also means that messages can reach employees no matter where they are in the world when a crisis unfolds. The tool is designed to be fully compliant with ISO22301 and the encrypted service is delivered from ISO27001 certified data centres.

 

GJD

GEM external wired curtain detector utilising PIR technology

The recently launched GEM is a wired outdoor PIR curtain detector with up to 12m selectable detection range. Designed to be positioned to look across windows, doors, balconies or the entire length of a property wall., it features a narrow invisible curtain beam, and is said to be highly effective in protecting properties against crime. Two GEM units can be fitted back-to-back providing longer distances, reduced cabling, and cutting down installation time. Designed with front and rear tamper sensors, if the detector is tampered with it will instantly trigger the CCTV system and notify the designated user. It is IP65 rated and has temperature compensation, making it suitable for outdoor use including extreme environments.

The product is supplied with a customisable “T” bracket for narrow beam applications. An additional swivel bracket can be purchased for applications that require a customisable pan and tilt angle. If it is mounted on a T-Bracket or a swivel bracket, the tamper will still activate if vandalism occurs.
It also has a switch selectable detection range, adjustable sensitivity, LED indication on/off options, a low voltage to be used in various applications and a two-year warranty.

 

Videx

New Digital IP Panel Range

Videx has introduced its new vandal resistant digital IP panel range – the 4514 series.The 4514 is said to complement the existing Videx IP system, offering a digital call panel which is suitable for larger installations, capable of calling up to 5,000 apartments, appealing to both private and public sector apartment buildings.

Available in a vandal-resistant 4000 series style and full vandal-resistant with a stainless steel bezel flush back box, the digital panels come with the option of an alpha-numeric keypad (A-F) or name search and scroll facility keypad. Custom sized panels are also available. All models are said to include a large 128×64 pixel graphical LCD display which is back lit blue, designed to provide clear visual messages that can be displayed in multiple languages for the user of the system. The panels can be powered by either POE or a 12Vdc supply. Advanced features such as RTSP to stream the video from the camera and HTTP for third party integration are standard, alongside full SIP integration (including direct SIP for use without a SIP server) to allow the digital panel to be used with third party telephone systems and similar scenarios.

 

Ajax Systems

MultiTransmitter updates

The updated version of the MultiTransmitter from Ajax Systems now supports 2EOL and 3EOL connections, more types of alarms, and an extended EOL resistance value range. The MultiTransmitter is designed for installation engineers and security companies to be able to build a comprehensive security system based on the wired equipment already installed at a facility.Owners of outdated wired alarm systems receive control of security modes in a smartphone app, notifications, and automation scenarios from Ajax. Installation engineers and security companies can now manage the system settings in Ajax PRO apps: both on–site and remotely.

The new version allows users to connect wired water leaks detectors to the system, while the device can now notify users about a service event, without sending the alarm to the security company’s monitoring station. This can be useful to keep track of the water level in a reservoir or the state of smoke machine service outlets. For the convenience of installation engineers, Ajax have provided a tool in Ajax apps that measures the resistance of termination resistors and sets recommended values. Production and delivery of the previous version of MultiTransmitter has now stopped, and users and partners can distinguish between versions as the new device comes in different packaging with a “3EOL” label.
