Within the first week of deploying this type of technology to one of our offender sites, we were able to eliminate a large percentage of our false alarms.
Dublin, Ireland (PRWEB UK) 16 June 2014
Xtralis, the world’s leading provider of very early & reliable detection and remote visual verification safety and security solutions, today announced a series of downloadable multi-service capabilities for the ADPRO FastTrace™ 2/2E Remotely Managed Multi-service Gateway (RMG). The FastTrace 2/2E is a 4-to-20-channel platform for video recording, bi-directional audio for deterrence, transmission over any network, and offers remotely downloadable software analytics to eliminate threats to a facility through automatic visual detection and verification. This platform not only provides industry-leading detection & reliable transmission, but also offers flexible multi-service capabilities that can be tailored to a particular application. The RMG is a disruptive technology in this industry as it opens up the world of downloadable, remotely managed, multi-service capabilities. The RMG makes it easy for a CMS or keyholder to download and deploy detection, verification, and response services that help them manage, protect, and monitor their site like never before. This unique solution provides superior detection capabilities for a proactive security approach and is up to 86% lower in total cost of ownership (TCO) than solutions combining discrete recording, transmission (for remote access over any network), and analytics capabilities.
The downloadable multi-service capabilities include a variety of safety and security services such as ADPRO IntrusionTrace™, a proven intrusion detection analytic that is i-LIDS® approved as a primary detection system for operational alert use in sterile zone monitoring applications and ADPRO LoiterTrace™, an established detection analytic for unauthorized loitering in indoor & outdoor applications. Thousands of challenging sites rely on IntrusionTrace every day to provide reliable detection and visual verification and it was enhanced to provide configurable directional areas to produce an alarm when a target moves in a specific direction. It also offers enhanced spider and rain suppression to achieve best detection and no false alarm results for the most complex applications. ADPRO LoiterTrace has also achieved great success in many applications where monitoring of unauthorized loitering in indoor and outdoor applications is critical. These analytics are available on Xchange for the FastTrace 2/2E.
The RMG’s power is extended through the enhanced ADPRO iTrace™, a downloadable remote video verification software application, to enable a user to view an event at their protected site from anywhere and utilize the multi-service capabilities of the RMG: event notification, commands, & audio talk-down to respond appropriately. The application, now available for Apple and Android devices, is wirelessly connected to the FastTrace 2/2E or HeiTel Video Gateway at your site and provides multiple services at your fingertips. View 3 event snapshots and a playback sequence in the event quad view to quickly identify & verify the threat to your site. The RMG can be configured to send email event notifications to your smartphone or tablet, providing a quick update of the event that occurred at the site with a quick access button to View Event in the iTrace application. Easily manage and control doors, gates, lights or other devices remotely within the site commands menu of iTrace. Monitor live audio coming from the site and utilize the live site talk-down feature in iTrace to assess, identify, deter, and/or interrupt the threat behaviour. iTrace application users can view IntrusionTrace, LoiterTrace, & SmokeTrace alarms. iTrace’s premium iCommand features including event notification, site commands, and live site talk-down can be activated for the FastTrace 2/2E on Xtralis Xchange.
“We are very pleased to see sites we protect adopting the FastTrace 2E RMG and its multi-service capabilities. We believe in a reliable proactive, intelligent solution that provides not only superior detection but a reliable method for verification to eliminate hoax calls which are very costly to the department and The City of London,” said Sgt. Paul Doyle, City of London Police. “Our initial views with this system were exceeded with the response capabilities and the connectivity to third party sites this system offers. iRespond will provide exceptional intelligence to my colleagues and will allow us to assess the situation visually while enroute so we can better prepare for first time site response. I believe this will reduce the number of hoax calls we respond to, and manage the amount of man power deployed to incidents in the coming years,” added Sgt. Doyle.
Xtralis unveiled its first converged safety & security solution in November 2013, called ADPRO SmokeTrace™ — a FastTrace 2E video analytic which allows monitoring sites to visually verify fire threats before calling the fire brigade, reducing false alarms and significantly lowering the large cost of responding to false fire alarms. This proactive technique provides accurate visual verification of smoke to first responders via the new ADPRO iRespond™, a downloadable Apple application, for remote event notification & verification for first responders and/or end-users to provide situational intelligence to enact appropriate, informed response through a live and timed access into the remote site under the supervision of the Central Monitoring Station (CMS). iRespond allows central monitoring stations to create an event case number with all relevant details and provide a simple 6 digit code to law enforcement & first responders so they can visually assess the situation prior to arrival and plan the appropriate response. This threat intelligence significantly lowers the cost of responding to false alarms with large units and allows first responders to better prepare for the threat on hand – hence providing additional protection and increasing their safety.
“False alarms are costly to the department and the city and take limited resources away from important tasks. The department has led the conversation on reducing false alarms though visual verification technologies for years and we’re pleased to see companies like Xtralis developing a cost-effective, reliable, and easily deployable smoke visual verification technology,” commented Guy Foster, Head of Fire Investigation and Engineering for London Fire Brigade. “Within the first week of deploying this type of technology to one of our offender sites, we were able to eliminate a large percentage of our false alarms,” said Foster.
In addition, the portfolio expands to include business intelligence services such as ADPRO ClientTrace™, a downloadable software application to provide consumer behaviour information to increase sales & customer engagement to help increase the sales potential. Xtralis is devoted to helping our customers such as car dealerships and big-box retail stores make the most of their security infrastructure investments to achieve better business results.
“We have reached absolute reliable detection & visual verification for car dealerships throughout Germany by installing ADPRO FastTrace 2/2E and IntrusionTrace,” said Mr. Kowalik, CEO at Secontec. “We are proud to provide our customers a system that not only provides superior protection against threats to the customers’ sites, but in addition also supports the sales activities of our customers with business intelligence functionality. ADPRO ClientTrace uses the existing FastTrace 2/2E infrastructure at the site and provides the dealerships the base to optimize sales strategies,” continued Mr. Kowalik.
