Halo Smart Labs’ Halo hard-wired smart smoke alarm combines sensor technology for flash fires, smoldering fires and carbon monoxide in a single device. Halo WX includes customizable natural disaster alerts. Users can set the device to alert them to imminent danger, including floods, tornadoes, wildfires, tsunamis, hurricanes and nuclear emergencies. Users can receive alerts and control the devices through their phones. Halo also allows connectivity and integration with most connected home systems.
Boon Edam’s Speedlane Swing gate uses sensors to detect approaching visitors; features pulsing light strips for guidance, and has customization possibilities. It also has a sleep function to save energy and is available in color finishes. As the user approaches, a pulse of light travels along the unit, an arrow symbol directs the user through, and a panel lights up within the curved glass top, prompting the user to present a valid pass.
Exacq Technologies’ (part of the Tyco Security Products business unit) exacqVision Z-Series enhanced network video recorders continuously record up to 1,200 Mbps of video and deliver up to 1,800 frames per second of video to web and mobile clients. Up to 500 client users or 100 web browser/mobile app users can connect to a single Z-Series recorder at the same time. It has front-accessible, hot-swappable hard drives, RAID 5 or 6 to protect against data loss and provide continuous operation. It includes up to 64 analog camera inputs for instant connection of analog security cameras and can host up to 128 IP cameras.
Edwards Vigilant VS-Series fire alarm systems can be configured using a default general alarm, or it can be customized for special alarm sequences. Programming can be accomplished at the front panel or remotely, using a PC if a technician is on-site to verify correct system operation. The control panels have gently curved doorfronts in a red or silver finish and are inset behind a black bezel. Low-profile Genesis signals provide independent horn silence over two wires.
Siemens Industry Inc. Building Technologies Division’s Desigo fully integrated multimodal mass notification system can be used in a single building or across a large campus for communicating a series of emergency and nonemergency messages. It can combine varied message-delivery methods, from visual warnings to audible alerts and blends a clear user interface with predefined scenarios and customizable messages. Operators use a centralized dashboard and a consistent workflow-based interface to manage, track and review multiple emergency incidents. Messages can be targeted to specific zones, individuals, groups or devices.
Douglas Lighting Controls’ dialog room controller lighting control device has color-coded wires and matching labels, quick-connect low-voltage terminal blocks, and on-board wiring instructions. It has four relays, four independent 0–10V dimming channels, and an optional two-relay expansion pack that is UL924 certified for controlling emergency lighting. It comes as a kit—with a controller, occupancy sensors, switch stations and daylight sensors—designed for specific room scenarios and spaces.
Potter’s PFC-6200 is a single-loop expandable to two-loop analog/addressable fire alarm control panel. It uses the Potter/Nohmi device protocol. The onboard signaling line circuit (SLC) supports 127 of any combination of smoke sensors, heat detectors or modules, is capable of 50 ohms of resistance and does not require the use of twisted or shielded wire. An additional SLC may be added in the control panel or remotely installed to provide a total system capacity of 254 points.
Samsung Techwin America’s ONVIF-compliant SRH-3000 hybrid network video recorder can accommodate up to six hot-swappable HDDs with a storage capacity of 24 TB. It can record both analog and IP video, so users can operate existing analog cameras while transitioning to IP cameras.The embedded Windows-based SRH-3000 provides up to 64 channels for recording IP video (16 channels for analog) at up to 250 Mbps. It supports H.264, MPEG-4 and MJPEG and is compatible with Samsung centralized management software.
Panasonic’s WV-SF538 super dynamic full HD dome network camera is designed for day/night surveillance, capturing clear images at F/1.3 in locations with a minimum illumination of 0.3 lux (B&W). The Adaptive Black Stretch technology increases visibility of subjects in dark areas of a video scene without compromising the image quality of brighter areas. The face super dynamic range technology offers blur-free images of the human face. The UniPhier LSI chip enables this network camera to stream real-time imagery in full HD resolution of 1,920-by-1,080 at 30 fps. The electronic sensitivity enhancement function auto (up to 16x) increases the quantity of light stored on the sensor.
