Protecting high-value assets

August 2013 Fire & Safety

Xtralis has announced that Secontec, a security installer in Germany, selected and installed ADPRO FastTrace 2X and i-LIDS approved IntrusionTrace to protect Volkswagen and Audi dealership car lots.

Several cameras are used for a variety of security applications connected to the FastTrace 2/2X with IntrusionTrace for primary detection. The system provides remote visual verification with bi-directional audio and appropriate alarm handling that secures car dealerships throughout Germany in cities such as Stuttgart, Frankfurt, Berlin, and Hamburg.

The deployment of ADPRO significantly reduced the insurance rates for the car dealerships and ultimately interrupted theft while still providing a welcoming experience for potential customers.

Theft and vandalism at car dealerships is on the rise and as a result owners find it difficult to obtain insurance or experience extremely high insurance rates. “We delivered a successful solution to the Volkswagen and Audi dealerships that protected their assets and afforded them a major reduction in insurance rates,” commented Romuald Kowalik, CEO of Secontec. “This application is very challenging; as you need a very sophisticated system to distinguish human intruders from environmental nuisances and animals, but also provide intelligent remote visualisation to determine if the intruder is a customer or a thief. Based on our expertise and experience with installing security systems for challenging applications, we selected and installed the Xtralis solution for Volkswagen and Audi because of its superior intrusion detection performance, ability for talk-down to the person of interest from the central monitoring station, and the scalability of the systems to thousands of sites,” added Kowalik.

“Our sophisticated intrusion detection algorithms deliver the highest rate of detection combined with the lowest rate of false alarms,” commented Jorg Tilkin, vice president security systems of Xtralis. “We enjoy the opportunity to partner with leading installers and central monitoring stations to deploy and implement the Xtralis solution at some of the most challenging sites in the world.”

The FastTrace 2X, launched in September 2012, is the first hybrid multi-service security platform capable of rapid and easy deployment of new services on all 16 channels. i-LIDS approved IntrusionTrace, a downloadable intrusion detection analytic, significantly reduces false alarms and can be remotely configured and running in minutes without the necessity of sending a technician to the customer site. Subscription licences are available and once a licence is purchased, it can be easily and remotely moved to any FastTrace 2/2X platform in your security domain.
