Austin, TX (PRWEB) August 26, 2008
Smarter Security Systems, provider of intelligent entrance control and outdoor security solutions, today announced the release of its second-generation SmarterSentry mobile surveillance system. The changes made enhance the video coverage and increase ruggedness to improve security at remote or temporary locations. The first of the new units is shipping to a customer this week.
"SmarterSentry uniquely addresses the needs many organizations have for surveillance to protect either mobile or remote outdoor assets," said Mark Ellsworth, Vice President of Sales for Smarter Security Systems. "With the powerful cameras, the on-board SmarterDVR™ delivering real-time video and threat assessment, and a highly reliable, 30-day power supply based on propane, SmarterSentry is a compelling mobile solution to organizations not willing or able to invest fixed security resources at a location."
Many changes were made to SmarterSentry to enhance its surveillance capabilities. The mast height was extended to 33 feet, putting the Pan/Tilt/Zoom (PTZ) cameras about 35 feet off the ground. Instead of one PTZ camera, there are now two mounted atop this mast (to go along with two fixed cameras lower on the mast), and the improved cameras have a 27x optical/12x digital zoom and an active infrared range of 300 feet for night vision. These changes enable the PTZ cameras to see greater detail at much longer distances. For stability of the camera images at this height, four guy wires were added that connect the top of the mast to four outriggers on each corner of the trailer.
The SmarterDVR is now secured by two locks in a steel cabinet and is mounted atop vibration isolators to protect the computer while SmarterSentry is being towed. A lockable cabinet was added to the trailer to enable secure storage of the cameras and other equipment when not in use. The new trailer body is completely made of heavy-guage steel with welded construction for long-term durability. With the option for a re-moveable trailer hitch and a new spare tire, SmarterSentry is more secure when parked and more safe when traveling down the road.
SmarterSentry is ideal for law enforcement and border patrol efforts where areas without power or easy internet connections need to be watched for often short periods of time. This might include large outdoor events, disaster sites, or public investigation work. Industries with expensive equipment at risk outdoors for short-term operations, such as construction and oil and gas, would also benefit from the protection of SmarterSentry.
