Stanley Security Solutions has launched the Videofied® wireless intruder alarm system with integrated video, providing a low cost bridge between intruder alarm and CCTV systems.
Videofied is an event based alarm system featuring PIR intruder detectors with in-built cameras. When the PIR sensor is triggered, the onboard video camera is activated and instantly takes a ten second video clip of whatever has caused the detection. The video is immediately sent to the alarm monitoring station with the alarm signal, allowing the operator to see what has caused the alarm and enabling them to distinguish between a genuine intruder and a false alarm event.
Such an innovative design makes for a highly effective intruder alarm system as it identifies crimes in progress leading to a priority response and high apprehension rates, as well as helping to reduce false alarms – essential to guarantee police response.
Videofied is extremely cost-effective to purchase, install and monitor, especially when compared to the cost of most conventional CCTV systems. One of the key reasons for this is that Videofied is a totally wireless system. All aspects of the system, including the control panels and alarm devices, are battery operated (with two years life on a single set of batteries), and the communication back to the monitoring station is via a GPRS link from the panel. This means that a system can be set up in minutes with minimal disruption, installation time and cost.
Videofied incorporates both indoor and outdoor PIR cameras with built in IR illumination for day/night video capability, so is suited to an exceptionally wide range of environments, including temporary and rapid response applications, such as construction sites, vacant properties, utilities and transport infrastructure, where speed and ease of installation are an important consideration. Videofied is also particularly suited to applications where false alarms are costly or where police response is in danger of being withdrawn without a system upgrade.
Videofied includes all of the peripherals that you would expect from a standard alarm system, including conventional PIRs, sirens, door contacts, and smoke detectors. In total up to 24 motion viewers (including PIR cameras) can be integrated with one control panel for a cost-effective system.
Although relatively new to the UK, the Videofied system has been successfully deployed in over 185,000 installations across 35 countries.
