App-based Visual ID Verification

EMEA, Americas, Technology, Supplier News

OPTEX has announced the launch in English-speaking countries of a new 180° day/night Wi-Fi camera module that integrates with its outdoor VX Infinity (VXI) sensor to create an App-based visual verification solution.

 


The VXI series operates with a range of up 12 metres and is used for both residential and commercial applications, detecting intrusions in courtyards, gardens, driveways and secured car parks. The VXI-CMOD Wi-Fi connected camera module can be retro-fitted onto existing wired VXI models to create a single unit visual verification system that can be added to an existing alarm panel or used as a standalone solution.

When the sensor detects an intruder, the integrated camera module is activated: it records the event and sends a notification to the owners’ paired mobile phone(s) (iOS or Android). The notification is made through an app called OPTEX Vision and the event can be accessed by up to three users simultaneously*. By opening the app, the recipients can access the VXI-CMOD’s live view, and the stored two-second pre-alarm and 28-second post-alarm recording of the event for verification. The camera module’s live view can be accessed anytime through the OPTEX Vision app.

VXI-CMOD features a 180° panoramic view at 1080P HD, with built-in infrared LEDs for enhanced vision at night. VXI-CMOD is also equipped with a microphone. Via the app, the owners can access the camera’s live view and audio at any time. As the solution is led by the sensor which is truly pet-tolerant and features sensing analytics to perform in any weather condition, it will only send a notification when a person or vehicle has been detected.

 

Masaya Kida, OPTEX EMEA managing director, says:

"This solution helps solve two problems. One is seeing what, or who, has triggered an alarm so immediate action can be taken.

 

"The second is to be notified only when needed, and not receive nuisance alarm every time the cat or dog is out.



"As well as security applications, the app can be used for everyday convenience, such as being notified when a delivery has arrived or when members of family have returned home.

 

"We believe the solution will also help to address scepticism over the reliability of outdoor PIR sensors, particularly in the United Kingdom."
