Leading sensor manufacturer, OPTEX Europe, has returned to IFSEC during its 40th anniversary in 2019 to showcase two new solutions with visual verification at their heart – the enhanced version of its LiDAR range, and innovative RADAR technology.
Firstly, OPTEX provides a way to upgrade its best-selling 12m outdoor intrusion sensors to an App-based visual verification solution by introducing a Wi-Fi 180° day/ night camera. The VXI-CMOD will send home and business owners immediate notification of an intrusion when it occurs, and a dedicated App provides access to the live view with sound, as well as the access to recorded pre and post-event footage.
Secondly, the Intelligent Visual verification solution for monitored alarm systems was launched at IFSEC for the UK market. It consists of innovative hardware, the OPTEX Bridge and a performant software package powered by CHeKT that takes separate intruder and ONVIF compliant CCTV technologies installed on the same site, but acting independently, and ‘bridges’ them to create one, seamless, integrated monitored solution. Intruder alarms can now effectively be visually verified.
The company also showcased the enhanced short- and long-range LiDAR sensors. Both REDSCAN series feature now extended detection range, up to respectively 30m and 100m. The REDSCAN RLS-2020 is also now Grade 3 compliant opening up new opportunities for indoor applications.
To detect and track people, vehicles, and drones in wide-open areas, OPTEX displayed compact surveillance radars manufactured by its business partner SpotterRF.
“OPTEX is excited to be returning to IFSEC in the year of our 40th anniversary,” says Masaya Kida, Managing Director of OPTEX EMEA, “While we are proud of our heritage, we know that we can never stand still, and so we continue to design and innovate new products and solutions for an ever-changing world. Our management, sales, technical, marketing teams are all present at the show to demonstrate the new sensors and visual verification solution as well as discuss any new opportunities.”
