New outdoor detector series

February 2006 Perimeter Security, Alarms & Intruder Detection

Rokonet is launching a new outdoor detector series - WatchOUT. WatchOUT includes four detection channels - two MW and two PIR channels; effectively solving the pressing issue of high false alarm rates from outdoor volumetric detectors. WatchOUT is an ideal detector for the unstable outdoor environment and was recently awarded the Highly Commended Alarm Product prize at the 2005 Detektor International Awards in Sweden.

WatchOUT exercises Selective Event Recognition to distinguish between false alarms and real intrusion events. The Selective Event Recognition is enabled by the two new breakthrough Rokonet technologies:

Digital correlation technology compares between the signals of two PIR channels with separate optics to ensure that only a target creating a similar and correlated signal in both PIR channels trigger an alarm, thus eliminating false alarms from rapid temperature changes, wind gusts and pets up to 70 cm head height.

Sway recognition technology uses two microwave channels for recognising and excluding swaying objects such as bushes or tree limbs.

WatchOUT detectors include an optional camera and unique remote control and diagnostic capabilities when installed with ProSYS Integrated Security Systems. The detector has a wide range of professional swivels and a MW 'Anti-Collision' feature that enables adjacent detector installations. Additional features include Active IR for Anti-Mask and 'Dirty Lens' alerts, a protective hood and IP65 environmental rating.
