Proximex Surveillint PSIM Now Offers Situational Awareness and Communications Capabilities
Tyco Security Products, part of Tyco has announced the newest release of its Proximex Surveillint PSIM solution, which provides security operation centers with unparalleled situational awareness and communication capabilities through enterprise dashboards, contact management, social media integration and a new module that raises operator alarms based on correlated events.
A new Analysis Module enables alarms to be raised on combinations of events that are separated by time or space without the clutter of extraneous alerts. For example, a site might want to raise an alert only when a combination of sensors, e.g. a fence motion sensor and video analytics, report an event in the same location. The Analysis Module also can uniquely trigger operator alerts for events that may otherwise be ignored, e.g. raising an invalid access attempt alarm if someone repeatedly tries to access a secure location by using a card at multiple doors.
“We’re committed to giving security organizations around the world as much information as possible about potential threats and the quickest, most cost-effective ways to communicate with their communities,” said Michael Mesaros, group product manager, Proximex, part of Tyco Security Products. “Operators can now receive automatic notification of weather, earthquake and other events, and they now have the ability to deploy a cost-effective mass-notification solution. This capability can be used, for example, to implement a crowdsourced, ‘say something, text something’ incident reporting system.”
This latest release of Surveillint features a new development tool that allows deployers to quickly build custom dashboards that display real-time operational information from security, building management and enterprise application systems. Security operations centers can, in one convenient display, monitor the number and types of open alarms, operator response times, the status of doors, cameras and sensors in the environment, and other operational metrics.
“Our customers want to be able to continuously monitor their security and operational status,” said Stephen Moody, business development manager for Ireland-based systems integrator ViS Security Solutions Limited, which deployed Surveillint for a local hospital. “This new ability to design custom enterprise dashboards which combine data from a variety of security and operational systems will help us address that need and deliver additional value to our customers.”
