The Future of Alarms Has Arrived 01 March 2010

Videofied XL – It‘s here. Not to be confused with video surveillance, Videofied is a burglar alarm system with built in video and voice verification. The availability of the Videofied XL now makes video verification burglar alarms affordable to the domestic marketplace, and leads the way forward in shaping the future in security alarm systems. Albeit priced for the domestic-small business market, the Videofied XL is packed full of the most advanced technologies including a combination of video and audio burglar alarm verification capabilities, wireless GPRS and GSM communicators, a touch screen keypad and the unique feature of a proximity tag arming and disarming station.

Video verification and Voice verification on a single system — all for the same price as a blind burglar alarm makes the Videofied XL the next generation alarm–system for the domestic to commercial markets. The Videofied XL and peripheral devices

are all completely self–powered and wireless. Manufactured by RSI Video Technologies in France, the state of the art engineering capabilities are demonstrated in the design of the power-efficient Videofied XL, which

can operate for up to four years on one set of batteries. Further feats of engineering marvels performed by RSI Video Technologies include the incorporation of the unique military–grade encrypted wireless bi–directional radio communication in all the Videofied devices. The robust, reliable, secure and highly penetrating wireless radio communication makes the new Videofied XL system the most versatile and most technologically advanced burglar alarm system on the planet. The Videofied XL is a worthy compliment to the simple genius of the MotionViewer. The Videofied MotionViewer is a self– powered wireless radio device that combines a PIR and digital day/night vision camera in one unit. The Videofied XL system is capable

of accommodating up to 20 MotionViewers. MotionViewers are only active when the XL panel is armed. In essence, the MotionViewer performs the role of a virtual electronic security guard, and reports exactly what has been seen by the MotionViewers PIR through the eye of the day/night vision camera. As Privacy is important, viewing is permitted only when the Videofied system is in an alarm state. Verification is the objective of the MotionViewer, not identification. Is it a person or not? Surveillance cameras recording in high definition at 100 frames per second is good evidence if the offenders are apprehended, but immediate video advice and verification of intrusion is the most important step to getting police and guards deployed with urgency, and facilitating the apprehension of the offender. Depending on what security solution suits a client’s needs, if a hi–resolution CCTV-DVR

style system is being used in an attempt to catch intruders the client is likely paying 500% more than they should have paid with the Videofied video verification system.

MotionViewers using a wireless and self–powered secure and encrypted network make the Videofied XL sound like the most cost-efficient security guard force one could deploy. The MotionViewer is available as an indoor or outdoor unit. There is no site that cannot be quickly and easily secured, either indoors or outdoors. The outdoor MotionViewer is IP65 rated and uses a unique algorithm that automatically adjusts to the environmental temperatures of up to 68 degrees Celsius and down to -20 degrees Celsius, activating the night vision camera only after intelligently detecting the movement of a subject (intruder). Problematic outdoor site installations previously requiring extensive, costly and time consuming labour and cabling now simply becomes a breeze as wireless outdoor MotionViewers can

be instantly mounted anywhere to protect detached garages, building perimeters, external doorways, boats, containers, work vans and utes, building sites and the list goes on. Flexible functionality is also an important feature, whereby the Videofied XL panel can arm the Outdoor MotionViewers whilst the main indoors of the premises, protected by indoor MotionViewers, is disarmed — allowing occupants to have the perimeter.
