Hikvision alarms improve protection

Residential Estate Security Handbook 2020 Perimeter Security, Alarms & Intruder Detection

No one can stay alert for a potential home or business security breach every hour of every day. That’s why alarm solutions are critically important for your customers in terms of identifying and reacting to any incident in the fastest and most effective way possible.

But not all situations require the same kind of alarm system, which is why Hikvision offers a broad range of alarm solutions and technologies for different customer requirements. In some cases, a customer needs to be aware when the perimeter of a site or location is breached. In other situations, they may need to monitor entrances or site perimeters to track multiple intruders at the same time, or to speed up responses in the event of attacks in buildings or in public spaces.

Hikvision has created a broad portfolio of innovative alarm solutions that are sophisticated, automated, and always fit for purpose.

Meet customers’ home security requirements

To maximise home security, Hikvision’s solutions combine a wide range of integrated detectors, including door- and window-contact detectors, break-glass detectors, vibration detectors, smoke, and temperature detectors. Customers can also stream video from their security cameras direct to their mobile phones with Hikvision’s Intruder Verification as a Service (IVaaS) technology, which seamlessly unites video with cutting-edge intrusion detection capabilities in a single platform.

The Hikvision Intrusion Alarm solution includes wireless alarm control panels and peripherals that make it fast and easy to deploy in home environments.

Detect and track multiple intruders concurrently

Customers with large sites to secure may need to track multiple intruders concurrently. You can give them this capability with Hikvision Security Radar, which offers a detecting distance of up to 120 metres and a 120° detecting angle. That means your customers can cover sites of 15 000 square metres and – most importantly – they can track up to 64 targets simultaneously. To make life easy for your security teams, you can define the different areas you want to monitor.

One Hikvision Radar can link up to four PTZ dome cameras at the same time to check multiple targets via video. With Hikvision, your customers also get an extremely low rate of false alarms. This means they can focus on real intruders rather than pets or other animals, or weather interference such as fog, rain or snow.

Stop criminals before they can do any damage

The best way to minimise risk and damage to assets is to stop intruders while they are still outside your site or building – and that’s what Hikvision Perimeter Protection is all about. To stop criminals in their tracks, it uses two parallel infrared bars that have to be broken at the same time for the alarm to be sounded.

With two infrared bars, your customers can filter out all kinds of false alarms, from small animals crossing their perimeter, to falling leaves or flickering lights – which means they always know when an intrusion threat is real.

Increase safety for people in public places

To help security teams work effectively, and ensure that people feel safe wherever they are, Hikvision has created an emergency alarm system. This solution allows a person in an emergency situation or attack to call for help by pushing a button, or by broadcasting a call for help to police or emergency response teams, or both. The Hikvision solution has a built-in camera and audio recording facility to collect evidence of the events taking place.

Based on these four key application areas, Hikvision alarm solutions cover all of your home security and business security requirements. While Hikvision’s intrusion alarm solutions protect homes and small businesses against break-ins, its security radar, perimeter protection, and emergency alarm solutions enable protection of people and assets and rapid responses on a far larger scale.
