Mayflex – the cabling infrastructure, networking and electronic security solutions distributor – has signed an agreement to distribute Digital Barriers’ intelligent video analytics application for reliable zone-based intrusion detection. SafeZone-edge is the first edge-based product to combine the performance of server-based intelligent video analysis with the simplicity of video motion detection.
Boasting UK Government certification (i-LIDS® scheme), SafeZone-edge is designed to protect secure facilities and reliably monitor remote sites with “exceptional detection accuracy” and “minimal false alarms”. It’s available now on a wide range of compatible Axis Communications cameras and encoders.
In addition to performance, SafeZone-edge has been designed with “a relentless focus” on ease of installation, affordability and scalability. An innovative auto-calibration feature dispenses with complex scene calibration tasks, in turn allowing multiple cameras to be installed quickly and without any fuss.
Intelligent processing ensures reliable operation, adapting automatically to seasonal and environmental conditions (variable illumination, shadows and general weather, etc) that can otherwise cause nuisance alarms. In a real-life operational test conducted across one week, the replacement of a video motion detection solution with SafeZone-edge resulted in a nuisance alarm reduction of 10,000-plus to just one.
Certification to UK Government standards
Mark Simmons, sales director at Mayflex, commented: “As a business we are continually striving to bring products on board which complement existing brands and offer our customers an easier way of working and making money. The fact that Digital Barriers has a relationship with Axis Communications, for whom we have distributed products and solutions for a number of years now, is a huge plus. This is yet another great brand that has been added to the ever-growing Mayflex security product portfolio.”
Dan Meyrick, sales and business development lead for SafeZone-edge, explained: “Digital Barriers is delighted to have Mayflex as a distribution partner. When bringing innovation to the market with products such as SafeZone-edge, it’s vital you have the right partners working with you. We certainly believe we have that in Mayflex and very much look forward to working with the team.”
SafeZone-edge has been certified to the following UK Government standards:
• i-LIDS® approved primary detection system for operational alert use in sterile zone monitoring applications
• i-LIDS® approved event-based recording system for sterile zone monitoring applications
