Wireless PIRs

by msecadm4921

Luminite, the UK-based manufacturer of PIR detector systems, has introduced the Genesis “smart” IP Masthead.

The product coordinates the alarm communications of up to 64 Genesis wireless PIR detectors. It transmits them as internet protocol (IP) data, across a network, to a CCTV system digital video recorder, network recorder (NVR) or remote monitoring station. Network access, via the IP Masthead, means that most Genesis PIR functionality can now be set-up and managed remotely, so fewer site visits by installers are required. The battery-powered, wireless PIR detectors are unconstrained by network or power cable locations and require no civil work to mount them around a site perimeter, the manufacturers report. The PIR detector alarms include tamper, anti-shock, anti-cloaking and intrusion detection, plus a range of system management alerts like low PIR battery strength and weak wireless signal. Distinguishing between critical and non-critical alarms, in this way, enables network and digital recorders to integrate with the IP Masthead, providing intelligent management. Critical alarms can alert an operator or key-holder to a site incident, whereas non-critical alarms, like a low battery life warning, can be used to remind the installer to schedule a maintenance visit. This approach the makers say adds to CCTV effectiveness, while reducing the likelihood of false alarms. An electronic ‘health-check’ every few seconds is to ensure that all the PIRs within a system are operating correctly. DVR and NVR manufacturers wishing to include this in their products can develop the necessary network communication protocols using a standard software development kit. Dedidcated Micros, GeoVision and Videoswitch are already compatible manufacturers.
