Housing With Onboard Infrared From Merit Li-Lin

With over 20,000 hours (five years) operation, the PRH Series IR Housing is suited for maintenance-free applications.

Crow Selling Alarm Panels With Integrated GPRS For 550

Not only is the new low cost Crow GPRS/GSM alarm reporting product, the PowerLink, going to be onboard in the company’s own alarm panels, there’s also a new module (the CrowLink) that will interface to every other alarm panel available on the market. This means installers taking advantage of loyalty rates from their suppliers, as well as those installers who are simply too comfortable with their current offerings to bother switching brands, will still benefit from Crow’s latest developments. Another key characteristic of the new CrowLink GPRS/GSM device is that when a module is attached to an existing alarm panel it allows bureau installers to change their monitoring provider at any time without having to reprogram every panel. Perhaps most importantly, the new Crow product means no end user need miss out on the advantages of GPRS alarm monitoring. Regular readers of SEM will be well aware of our feelings for GPRS and GSM monitoring.

New 64 Zone Australian Made Alarm Panel

If you’ve been thinking nothing exciting ever happens in the local alarm industry you’re wrong. With virtually no fanfare a local team has built something unexpected – a 64-zone control panel with integrated access control and some serious connectivity. In the mid-1980s one Sydney-based alarm panel manufacturer dominated the Australian alarm market. Its product was simple to operate and functional for its time. Best of all it was reliable – you still see EDM’s early panels operating today. It’s from the same designers that the new Digiflex Vision-64 alarm panel springs, an alarm panel with access control capability that’s been developed against a backdrop of global Internet connectivity. And when we talk about the Internet here we’re not just banging away about alarm reporting. The Vision-64 is an alarm panel that will send, receive and display email.

Dedicated Micros New BX2 Continuous Archive DVR

The BX2 is a high performance 16-camera digital multiplex recorder capable of a 100pps (PAL) record rate. The system’s advanced recording schedule allows the user to individually program each camera’s recording priority in order to give greater flexibility. This flexibility allows assignation of a higher recording rate to specific cameras on alarm, or allows the configuration of cameras in higher sensitivity areas to record more frequently. BX2 Continuous Archive units have RAID 1 fault tolerance to disk failure. There are 4 hard drives onboard giving 2 months storage with twin 600GB storage banks on its 1.2TB disks. The four integrated RAID1 disks store two identical copies of all recorded data. A pair of the disks can be removed directly from the machine at any time, whilst recording continues unaffected. Recording all data to two disks instead of one also means a failsafe backup is always in place should any disk fail.
