Vision Systems has a new division, Vision Fire and Security, to be responsible for the VESDA smoke detection and ADPRO security and surveillance business. The division’s latest product is Adpro NetVu, a remote digital video and audio transmission monitor. It allows the remote monitoring of sites and is designed to work across a range of communication links such as PSTN, ISDN and LANs/WANs. It can send real-time high quality video without consuming large amounts of bandwidth.
Upon activation of an alarm at a remote site, three high quality images are captured and sent to the central monitoring location for verification. Up to 180 pre-alarm images can be captured to give more details of what is causing the occurrence. Two-way audio can be used simultaneously with live video to warn off potential intruders. An integrated joystick on the keyboard allows the remote operators to have variable speed control of pan/tilt/zoom cameras and they can control on-site equipment such as gates, lights and door latches.

The Security Canada International Security Conference and Exposition late last year gave two awards to Interlogix Security & Life Safety Group (Sentrol/ESL). The awards are sponsored by the Canadian Alarm and Security Association. The Sentrol ShatterPro 3 was awarded the Dealers’ Choice in the burglary category, while the Sentrol Skybox was awarded Dealers’ Choice in the specialty products category.
The ShatterPro 3 is an acoustic glassbreak sensor that detects in a full 360 degree coverage pattern with maximum 7.5 metre radius from sensor to glass. Using patented technology, the sensor listens for the pattern of breaking glass, eliminating most false alarm patterns.
The Skybox Cellular Back-up System is a control channel communications product using Aeris.net MicroBurst technology. The cellular system is unlike most alarms, which rely on telephone wires that can be cut by an intruder or taken down in a storm. It is designed to work with any standard alarm control panel.
Interlogix has also added new features to the SafeAir Carbon Monoxide Alarm (240-COe) which is listed under UL 2075 as both a stand-alone and system detector. The enhanced alarm has an end-of-sensor life indicator, test/hush button, 85dB temporal-4 sounder and self diagnostics.
