ComNet’s NetWave NW8 wireless Ethernet link is designed to support redundant ring and “drop-and-insert” functionality on a wireless network. The NW8 is a dual radio version of the recently introduced NW series of environmentally hardened wireless Ethernet products. ComNet positions this product as a solution for large-scale perimeter protection for facilities such as airports, border patrol and other large facilities where a wired infrastructure is cost-prohibitive. The NW8 models feature dual gigabit Ethernet ports that support up to two IP connections and allow for multiple IP cameras to be aggregated onto the wireless network. The NW8 also supports optional IEEE802.3at PSE (Power Sourcing Equipment) for powering PoE connected devices, such as IP PoE cameras and simplifying installation.

The new DINION IP imager 9000 HD camera from Bosch Security Systems is designed for perimeter protection and the surveillance of critical infrastructures, such as power plants and water treatment facilities. These types of applications require robust and reliable IP video surveillance solutions that proactively guard the property’s fences day and night, regardless of weather and lighting conditions. The DINION IP imager 9000 HD has an extremely rugged design and built-in active infrared lighting to withstand harsh weather conditions and penetrate darkness. Its unique features ensure that relevant objects of interest are captured with the highest level of detail possible, regardless of harsh backlight or front light, using intelligent Auto Exposure from Bosch. The Bosch intelligent Auto Exposure feature (iAE) overcomes this challenge by automatically adjusting the camera’s settings to increase the dynamic range of the camera.

The Integrated Door Controller (QIC) is powered over Ethernet and provides perimeter control for the facility. The Integrated Door Controller (QIC) also offers the following enhancements to the EL Series Electronic Lock: a compact single door controller that mounts at the door in a double gang box for easy installation; it uses an existing network infrastructure and connects to closest network switch with single Cat 5/Cat 6 cable; PoE that carries both data and power for controller and peripheral door hardware; it buffers up to 16,000 local events when disconnected from the host, so events are never lost; secure transmissions with end-to-end AES 128-bit encryption and more.
In a crash test, Delta Scientific’s new DSC720-1M bollards, created to stop taller trucks such as those found in Europe and the Mideast from tumbling over anti-terrorist crash-proof bollards, stopped a 15,000 pound (66.7 Km) flatbed truck impacting at 50 miles per hour (80 kph) with a -0.5 meter penetration of the vehicle, creating an M50, P1 ASTM rating. The bollards caused severe damage to the engine and drive train. The new bollards feature a variety of power options including Delta’s hydraulic power unit (HPU), all-weather pneumatic, electro-mechanical, manual or fixed post.
Canon added four new Full HD resolution network cameras to its product lineup—the VB-S30D PTZ (pan-tilt-zoom) Micro Dome Full HD Network Camera, VB-S31D PT (pan-tilt) Micro Dome Full HD Network Camera, VB-S800D Fixed Micro Dome Full HD Network Camera and VB-S900F Micro Box Full HD Network Camera. The new ultra-compact S-series network cameras have been designed for indoor environments that require sensitive monitoring of specific areas or items, such as in the retail, education, commercial and hospitality sectors. The cameras feature high-sensitivity CMOS sensors, large-apertures, wide-angle lenses and dual DIGIC processors.
Honeywell Security & Communications
Honeywell Security Group introduces new mobile apps for its popular LYNX Touch 5100 self-contained security system. The new L5100 Connect iOS app allows homeowners to control the system anywhere on premises within their Wi-Fi coverage areas on iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. The app provides local control of the security system, and if so equipped, control of Z-Wave enabled lights, locks, thermostats and more. This approach helps homeowners save money on energy and utility bills, conserve resources and live a more comfortable, efficient lifestyle.
With the introduction of the VIDEOJET decoder 3000 and VIDEOJET decoder 7000, Bosch is extending its decoder family with two new solutions for streaming video from IP cameras in high quality HD onto large flat-screen monitors or monitor walls. While providing various display options, both decoders are designed for operation without the need for an additional PC or software to decode the video signals. They support an economical update of video surveillance systems during the transition to IP technology.
Designed to work with the latest generation of Bosch control panels, RADION operates with 433 MHz band, allowing for higher transmission power and better penetration through building materials. Repeaters can be used to improve communication in difficult areas and to increase design flexibility. The devices also come with a long-lasting battery life and are designed to work with the latest generation of Bosch control panels.
Arecont Vision MicroDome cameras are designed for applications where both high-resolution and minimal footprint are required. Available in resolutions of 1.3-megapixels (MP), 1080p, 3MP and 5MP, Arecont Vision megapixel technology delivers image quality and reduces overall system costs by covering larger areas with fewer cameras. Standard features include a dual H.264 (MPEG-4 Part 10) and JPEG encoder, fast frame rates, on-camera privacy masking and 1024-zone motion detection.
The Site Protection Solution (SPS) provides affordable video security for a wide range of applications. The SPS combines thermal cameras and intelligent, adaptive analytics from VideoIQ to provide reliable video security of perimeters and large open areas at any time of day or night. The WDR thermal video provides threat detection and visual alarm assessment even in challenging situations.
