BGWT Wins Distribution of Visonic Wireless Alarm Solutions

Visonic Panel
Visonic Panel

WIRELESS alarm system pioneer Visonic’s solutions are now available from BGWT. 

“Visonic’s industry-leading technology also now has a new home at BGW Technologies,” says Simmons. “The reason we bought Visonic on board was that it offers 2000m line of sight – it’s usually around 300m max. This big range makes Visonic ideal for commercial industrial and rural applications. The system has 64 zones and a very cool application for remote management."

“As a Tyco partner currently distributing Software House, it made sense to extend our relationship to also include Visonic which is part of the Tyco Security Products family.

Alarm Monitoring: You Need a Game Plan

Alarm installers and monitoring stations need a plan
Alarm installers and monitoring stations need a plan

Alarm installers need to sit down and map out a game plan to ensure their clients’ alarm solutions and their own businesses are prepared to handle the changes the market faces over the next 24 months.  

It’s going to be a weird couple of years for the Australian alarm monitoring market. It’s not as if we had no idea this was coming but having everything going on at once is going to be a challenge. It’s goodbye to 2G, goodbye to PSTN, goodbye to rebates, and hello to new technologies and powerful new competitors.

Aussie-Developed Lone Worker eButton and Help App

eButton from AppAce
eButton from AppAce

COFFS Harbour engineer Ian Kinny has enhanced personal safety for Australians by developing the eButton, a world-first in utilising low energy Bluetooth technology to initiate a smart phone help app.

EBUTTON is a small and easy to operate device linked to an app on the user’s smart phone. One click on the eButton sends a request for help via SMS to the user’s selected help contacts. The SMS gives the location of the user with updates sent if the user moves.

While Ian Kinny of AppAce, a Coffs Harbour smart phone app design company, created eButton as a peace of mind button which would serve families, the device has serious capabilities for security people as well as businesses in general. It allows low cost and ubiquitous support for companies that need to look after their employees, including late night workers or those working in remote regions or dangerous locations.

Bosch Distributing DENSO 2-D Laser Sensor

Bosch Denso Laser Sensor
Bosch Denso Laser Sensor

BOSCH Security Systems’ DENSO Area Sensor uses a 2-dimensional laser plane to build a virtual ‘image’ of a detection environment. 

The sensor is then capable of independently tracking up to 16 moving objects within its detection area, feeding this data to intrusion detection systems, or even directly taking control of IP PTZ cameras by way of the ONVIF protocol.

One of the most advanced features of the DENSO Area Sensor is its ability to directly control IP PTZ cameras. While similar detectors in the market rely on low-level contact closure to switch cameras to presets based on detection in a limited number of ‘zones’, the Area Sensor can provide direct telemetry control to a camera including automatically acquiring the next highest priority target after the currently tracked object leaves the scene.

Honeywell Hardwired-to-Wireless Converter

Honeywell 5800
Honeywell 5800 C2W hardwired-to-wireless converter

HONEYWELL’S 5800C2W hardwired-to-wireless converter enables retrofitting of existing 12-volt security systems by converting their wired sensors to Honeywell’s 5800 Series wireless technology. 

In addition, it can be used in new construction installations that have been fitted with hardwired systems. Converting existing wired zones to wireless saves on installation cost, time and materials since there is no need to replace wired devices with individual transmitters. 

Honeywell’s 5800C2W is simple to install and extremely flexible. It can power wired PIRs, and the included power supply is backed up with a standard, rechargeable battery. One button calibration automatically configures 5800C2W by learning what zones are in use.

BENS BlueHub IP Review

BENS BlueHub IP
BENS BlueHub IP

BENS BlueHub from Mod2 is a plug and play communications module that carries most dialler-based alarm panels into a networked environment. 

BENS has released its new BlueHub, which is designed and manufactured by Ki-Ren Chua’s Mod2. The device turns any ContactID dialler-based alarm panel into a network solution. Advanced versions also allow remote management of legacy alarm panels using smart device apps. 

I got a demo of BlueHub at Security 2014 in Melbourne with BENS’ Dallas Whittaker. In form it’s a compact solution with a simple double housing. The smaller module on the left of these images is an analogue-to-digital encoder, with ContactID coming in at the top. This module is bonded to the main comms unit, which incorporates power and a network port.
