IntrusionTrace receives official recognition as a primary detection system from the Home Office Scientific Development Branch i-LIDS initiative
Version 1.14 of IntrusionTrace, a downloadable intrusion detection analytic for the ADPRO FastTrace 2/2X, has been approved as a primary detection system for operational use in sterile environments by the UK Home Office Scientific Development Branch (HOSDB).
This is the third Xtralis product to receive this certification, with Xtralis Presidium having been approved back in 2008.
The Imagery Library for Intelligent Detection Systems (i-LIDS) is the UK Government’s benchmark for video analytics. i-LIDS is comprised of a library of CCTV video footage based around ‘scenarios’ central to the Government’s requirements. Sterile zone monitoring addresses alarm events consisting of the presence of people in a sterile zone between two security fences.
This approval means that Government and other mission-critical security users can confidently implement IntrusionTrace for an array of sterile zone monitoring applications in the knowledge that the solution provides the highest level of accuracy in diverse real world environments.
Meeting standards for video analytics
“We strongly recommend our customers only deploy i-LIDS primary detection certified video analytics solution,” said Markus Piendl, senior consultant (security and systems management) at strensys GmbH in Oberammergau, Germany.
“We’ve seen dozens of projects in the perimeter security sector where a variety of national/international vendors have not fulfilled any standards in terms of algorithms for video analytics. These systems caused a lot of problems and it was necessary to change them. Thanks to the HOSDB, i-LIDS is now a well-known standard on the global stage.”
Piendl continued: “We have been very happy with Xtralis Presidum over the years and are excited to hear that Xtralis IntrusionTrace is now i-LIDS certified for primary detection for operational use in sterile environments. This is excellent news for our customers and opens a lot of opportunities, especially with the corresponding Xtralis licencing model. Both existing and potential new customers can profit from an international standard like i-LIDS, making sure that the investment in this excellent perimeter security solution is state-of-the-art.”
Piendl, himself an international perimeter security specialist with more than 15 years’ experience in the market and 1,400 projects worked on, added: “FastTrace 2/2x loaded with i-LIDS certified IntrusionTrace and combined with intelligent ADPRO PIRs delivers an excellent perimeter protection system that can be trusted for the toughest jobs.”
Plethora of security-focused applications
Since being introduced in September last year, IntrusionTrace has been successfully deployed on thousands of FastTrace 2/2X video channels in a diverse variety of security applications around the world including Government facilities, military and law enforcement sites, retail, warehousing, solar parks and CNI projects for water, power and telecommunications plants.
“Xtralis is dedicated to delivering innovative, intelligent and reliable solutions for some of the toughest perimeter security applications,” commented Jorg Tilkin, vice-president (security systems) at Xtralis.
“i-LIDS is among the most difficult security certifications worldwide to achieve, and we’re pleased that IntrusionTrace successfully gained this status so quickly. At Xtralis we are committed to independent verification and certification of our solutions.”
Xtralis IntrusionTrace is a downloadable intrusion detection analytic for the FastTrace 2/2X that enables primary detection for operational use in sterile zone applications. IntrusionTrace virtually eliminates false alarms, allowing operators to monitor more sites with greater accuracy.
IntrusionTrace can be remotely configured and running in minutes without the need to send a technician to the customer site. Subscription licenses are available and, once a license is purchased, it can be easily and remotely moved to any FastTrace 2/2X platform in your security domain.
