Optimum multifaceted CCTV solution for ultra-high security introduced by EyeLynx

A modular integrated CCTV solution with wireless 4G router, multi-camera and recorder has hit the market with the aim of installations for ultra-high security sectors.

Pharos Optimus from software security expert EyeLynx allows up to four configurable devices to be mounted on a mast, meaning that site security operators can deploy the perfect combination of day, night and infrared cameras, lighting, detection and audio technologies on a single PTZ unit.

Highly robust to repel extremes of temperature, moisture and corrosive chemicals, Pharos Optimus models can cope with marine applications and other harsh environments such as industrial chemical plants and the desert.

EyeLynx, which is part of the perimeter protection group Zaun, expects the top end of its Pharos range to sell well to energy infrastructure operators, such as oil, gas, electricity and nuclear networks across Europe and the Middle East.

EPR100-RADAR-sideA-print

Optimus is deployed with configurable modules including Full HD 1080p and VGA thermal cameras, ANPR, visible or infrared LEDs and amplified horn speakers. Adaptive LED lighting controls brightness in response to ambient light levels.

Also available is a combined IR/white light LED module capable of illuminating subjects over 100 metres away.

Evidence gathering for prosecutions

CEO Jay Patel explained: “Optimus offers the greatest protection against crime and vandalism at a fraction of the price of security guarding, and also gathers vital HD video evidence for prosecution in the event of a security breach. Site security operators can detect threats early with advanced sensors such as RADAR, on-fence acoustic cable and video analytics integrated with SharpView.”

EyeLynx’s Pharos system is said to be the only true rapid deployment HD surveillance system on the market with Edge Recording Cluster (ERC) capability to incorporate an intelligent recorder, management software and wireless communications all in the same unit.

Cameras record HD 24/7. Whenever the perimeter is compromised or a potential intruder approaches too close to the site perimeter, Pharos will send a snapshot alert to the Control Room for visual verification using Wi-Fi, 3G, 4G or ADSL (or even to assigned personal mobile devices, such as the police or the nearest member of security staff to the breach).

SharpView integrates with access control, fire and intruder alarms and facial recognition systems to further enhance safety and security at multi-site facilities.

Precise movements at full zoom

Optimus incorporates a micro-stepping motor with no wearing parts ensuring smooth silent movement and zero backlash, while a speed range of 10,000:1 delivers precise movements even at full zoom.

EyeLynx has also unveiled an innovative mounting bracket for its Pharos pole-mounted devices complete with anti-tamper and anti-theft enhancements.

IHS Research Note: ‘Fire market to embrace wireless and IP technologies?’

In the latest Research Note from IHS, Justin Siller (manager of the security and building technologies group) informs on the global fire detection and suppression market.

Despite traditionally being slow to use new technologies, the fire market is starting to see increased interest in wireless and IP (Internet Protocol)-enabled products.

Wireless products have typically been used in specific applications where wiring is difficult (such as historical buildings), but outside of this the market has been virtually non-existent. Barriers such as reliability, price, variations in frequencies and installer reluctance have slowed adoption.

However, wireless is now beginning to be embraced. This is particularly true in the United Kingdom (UK) and Nordic countries.

Despite traditionally being slow to use new technologies, the fire market is starting to see increased interest in wireless and IP (Internet Protocol)-enabled products

IHS estimates some 25% of wireless product sales in Europe are taking place in the UK. End users are now willing to spend a bit more upfront for such solutions in exchange for lower installation costs as wiring is obviously unnecessary.

Focusing on the integrator/installer channel

The main barrier to mass-market adoption is the integrator/installer channel. Installers continue to be reluctant to market wireless products because they would need to complete more installations in order to realise the same financial returns as they do with wired installations.

That being the case, while end users see the benefits it remains the case that installers struggle to see any advantages.

For IP, increasing demand to integrate multiple building systems is driving acceptance. The managers of large facilities, centrally-managed chains and campus-style buildings want to connect multiple building systems together to gather higher levels of data on a single platform.

Surprisingly, most demand for these solutions is coming from the Middle East and South East Asia where legislation is more lax on integration standards. Here, building managers are integrating fire equipment with building management, security and lighting equipment to improve operational efficiencies and have fewer people reviewing/monitoring the information.

These moves are expected not only to increase the adoption for networked addressable panels but also enhance the adoption of more sophisticated communication channels such as IP and Modbus.

Demand for these technologies is expected to remain modest in the short-term. However, as other building technologies – such as access control, video surveillance, intruder alarms, building automation, elevators and visitor management systems – move to use wireless and IP-ready products, and are integrated, the fire industry may be hard-pressed not to follow suit.
