Tyco Security Products has announced the newest release of its Proximex Surveillint PSIM solution, which provides Security Operations Centres with “unparalleled situational awareness and communication capabilities” through enterprise dashboards, contact management, social media integration and a new module that raises operator alarms based on correlated events.
A new Analysis Module enables alarms to be raised on combinations of events that are separated by time or space without the clutter of extraneous alerts. For example, a site might want to raise an alert only when a combination of sensors (eg a fence motion sensor and video analytics) report an event in the same location.
The Analysis Module can also trigger operator alerts for events that may otherwise be ignored (for instance, raising an invalid access attempt alarm if someone repeatedly tries to access a secure location by using a card at multiple doors).
“We’re committed to giving end user organisations around the world as much information as possible about potential threats and the quickest, most cost-effective ways to communicate with their communities,” explained Michael Mesaros, group product manager at Proximex, which is part of Tyco Security Products.
“Operators can now receive automatic notification of weather events, for example, and they now have the ability to deploy a cost-effective mass-notification solution. This capability can be used to implement a crowdsourced ‘Say Something, Text Something’-style incident reporting system.”
This latest release of Surveillint features a new development tool that allows deployers to quickly build custom dashboards that display real-time operational information from security, building management and enterprise application systems. Security Operations Centres can, in one convenient display, monitor the number and types of open alarms, operator response times, the status of doors, cameras and sensors in the environment and other operational metrics.
“Our customers want to be able to continuously monitor their security and operational status,” said Stephen Moody, business development manager for Ireland-based systems integrator ViS Security Solutions, which deployed Surveillint for a local hospital. “This new ability to design custom enterprise dashboards which combine data from a variety of security and operational systems will help us to address that need and deliver additional value for our end customers.”
