JOHNSON CONTROLS introduced exacqVision video management system v19.03, the latest version of the VMS software, offering intuitive features and simple configuration and maintenance. This latest version provides users with quicker navigation of multiple facility maps, providing control and oversight to security operators who need to respond quickly to security events. The system also allows for customizing cameras’ on-screen display to show information like city, state, or custom description. Messages can display in various font colors and text styles, indicating levels of urgency or information categories. When connectivity between a supported Hanwha camera and exacqVision fails, video records onto the camera’s SD card until connectivity is reestablished. Upon connecting, the recorded video is transferred, automatically stored, and correctly catalogued.
COMPACT PERIMETER SECURITY
HGH offers its SPYNEL-M panoramic thermal radar for perimeter security and temporary surveillance applications. The 360-degree thermal imager is a compact perimeter security system, particularly adapted to temporary surveillance. The passive and stealthy sensor detects, identifies, and confirms the presence of imminent threats, automatically tracking them. SPYNEL-M’s small dimensions and weight allow for an easy transport and a fast deployment. The cost–effective, rugged, and compact solution for wide-area surveillance benefits from the advanced intrusion detection software CYCLOPE, which automatically tracks and detects an unlimited number of targets from any direction.
AMAG TECHNOLOGY announced the integration of its Symmetry Access Control v9.1 software with SUPREMA’s BioLite N2 and BioEntry P2 biometric readers, allowing Symmetry users to gain access with their fingerprints and credentials. With the integration, the Suprema readers provide end users with several options or access combinations. Symmetry cardholders using the Symmetry Access Control interface can create biometric enrollment. Organizations can implement a combination of pass card, PIN, and biometrics to allow access. The BioLite N2 provides protection against moisture, dust, and liquid in the harshest environments; it also offers use of Suprema’s fingerprint algorithm along with its latest optical sensor.
