Dahua and GJD partnership delivers advanced detector-activated surveillance

Dahua Technology’s network video recorders (NVRs) now have a direct integration with IP-based outdoor detectors from GJD Manufacturing Limited. This integration provides end users with high quality and reliable detector-activated surveillance and monitoring.

The D-TECT IP range of detectors and Clarius PLUS IP illuminators have been integrated with Dahua’s NVR6-4KS2 range, an enterprise-level NVR providing up to 4K resolution. Its open architecture supports multi-user access and it’s compatible with ONVIF 2.4, enabling interoperability when combined with third party 4K cameras.

The NVR includes intelligent video analytics to detect people and moving objects, as well as other predetermined events, such as abandoned or missing objects, tripwire detection, people counting and facial detection.

The integration was achieved by incorporating GJD’s API on a special firmware that enables the NVR to accept alarms from the detectors and link them to the recorder’s functions.

The BS 8418-compliant IP detectors are suitable for intruder monitoring, CCTV surveillance and other alarm warning requirements, providing both volumetric and long-range narrow field-of-view sensing, in addition to remote programming.

Eric Wang, head of product support for Dahua UK and Ireland, said: “We’re thrilled to have integrated our NVRs with GJD’s IP detectors, providing a professional detection and alarm monitoring solution that’s a fantastic addition to our security portfolio.”

Mark Tibbenham, GJD’s managing director, commented: “We are delighted to partner with Dahua Technology. The integration of Dahua’s surveillance products with GJD’s D-TECT IP motion detectors and Clarius illuminators will provide end users with high quality, reliable and efficient surveillance solutions.”

Hikvision and EMCS form partnership to expand CCTV system checks

Hikvision is expanding available opportunities for comprehensive CCTV system checks by establishing a unique partnership with EMCS, one of the UK’s largest independent monitoring stations.

The arrangements means that EMCS will now use the CCTV Sentry software to pro-actively monitor every customers’ CCTV system (not just those that traditionally opt for a monitored solution) and then send an e-mail if any problem is detected.

For its part, Hikvision has ensured that its entire range of DVR, NVR, Hybrid and HD-SDI products is 100% compatible.

EMCS has worked closely with Hikvision to roll out this comprehensive system checking service for the 80% of customers who, until now, have not had their CCTV systems monitored.

The remote status checking service offers round-the-clock peace of mind to all CCTV customers

As stated, every Hikvision DVR is now compatible with CCTV Sentry and provides information on camera and hard disk failures, recording issues and any time accuracy problems. In addition to e-mail alerts, CCTV Sentry customers can view a live status web page on their smartphone anywhere, any time.

“As a result of our partnership with EMCS, CCTV Sentry will now be available to security and risk managers at every multi-site organisation where a fully-functional CCTV system is a necessity,” explained Keen Yao, international marketing director at Hikvision. “That includes organisations in sectors such as retail, banking, hotels, education, logistics, transportation and Critical National Infrastructure.”

Yao went on to comment: “This new arrangement provides all EMCS customers with a valuable and highly proactive maintenance service tool that helps to ensure their CCTV systems are fully operational on a 24/7 basis.”

Offering his views on the new partnership, Mark Hewerdine (CCTV manager at EMCS) said: “Our customers can be rightly confident in the knowledge that all Hikvision products are 100% compatible with CCTV Sentry, that they’re competitively priced, easy to use and, most important of all perhaps, both stable and reliable.”

Yao added: “Integrating CCTV Sentry with EMCS’ standard alarm panel represents a genuine breakthrough for those sites with unmonitored CCTV installations, allowing end users to be alerted when a fault happens rather than them only finding out after an incident has occurred. It also means the team at EMCS can offer an immediate visual check for an intruder if an alarm should be triggered.”
