OPTEX integrated with Security Center

Issue 6 2021 Perimeter Security, Alarms & Intruder Detection

OPTEX, the global sensor manufacturer, has announced its award-winning REDSCAN PRO LiDAR Sensors are now fully integrated with Genetec Security Center, to provide enhanced perimeter protection for the highest security sites.

The announcement follows a long period of engagement between the two firms, even prior to the launch of the latest OPTEX sensor series, to ensure the data and algorithms could be fully integrated and interpreted by the Genetec Security Center platform. By integrating the two technologies, a series of advanced features, exclusive to Genetec, have now been unlocked.

Genetec is the only company to leverage the live X&Y; coordinates provided by the REDSCAN LiDAR to create critical area mapping and video tracking, including advanced intelligent features such as automatic target path fusion. This feature automatically merges single targets detected by multiple sensors together as one to help reduce the number of events presented via the Security Center Platform to the security staff and make them more relevant.

David Lenot, critical infrastructure practice lead at Genetec, says: “The integration of the OPTEX REDSCAN PRO series into our Security Center is a game changer for perimeter security. With detection, tracking and video verification all in one device, it’s not only more efficient and cost effective, but customers can expect higher levels of security and surveillance than ever before."

Automatic tracking of targets and camera handover is also enabled providing a complete, visual audit trail of events through a single interface. Additionally, the REDSCAN integration with Genetec can be used specifically in vertical mode to precisely map areas on a virtual wall. It could be mapping each window of a building façade for instance, or each painting on a museum wall, to enable any intrusion or alarm to be quickly located and visualised.

The REDSCAN Pro series – which includes two models, the RLS-3060V with a range up to 30 x 60 m and the RLS-50100V up to 50 x 100 m – provides highly accurate detection outdoor and indoor, without any gaps or the detection reliability fading with range. The rectangular detection patterns provide excellent coverage for virtual wall applications, and for virtual planes to cover open areas, ceilings and roofs. Its innovative panoramic camera module means detection can be visually verified through pre- and post-event images, as well as video stream footage.
