The current scenario for many industries is that a fire is somehow started, and when large enough the smoke or flames trigger sensors on the ceiling. The sensor, once triggered, will send an alert to the control/security/monitoring room that will dispatch a vehicle or an engineer to verify the status of the alarm signal.
axonX has announced an addition to any fire detection system with its advanced Signifire IP camera that has built-in video smoke and fire detection. This is vision-based artificial intelligence based on preprogrammed algorithms. The cameras are able to see and detect fire without the need of thermal imaging.
The system is based on four patent pending algorithms:
* Ambient smoke: Detects smoke that has stratified, gathering at the ceiling, causing blooming around light fixtures etc.
* Smoke plumes: Looks for characteristic shape and movement of a smoke plume.
* Fire: Detects flame flickers in line-of-sight of the camera.
* Reflected fire: Detects flames blocked by obstructions or outside the field of view by detecting the reflected fire light by ambient glow.
The system software the system supplies you with in order to manage large sites and areas easily by a click on any computer, even from the Internet, you will be able to view any fire hazards. The software works on a standard PC workstation connected to the network, the system is not centred around the cameras, but rather around the assets under protection.
With the fire detection camera having IP features, it allows remote recording which give the feature of being able to playback before the incident started and see what sequence of events lead up to the start of the fire.
