The Honeywell Active Alert suite of products is an ideal solution to enhance a facility's current level of security or to optimize the use of current personnel resources.
Honeywell Active Alert can be used as a standalone solution or in conjunction with a compatible recording system with local and remote management capabilities. The user interface is intuitive, user friendly and easy to maintain, regardless of the system size. Powerful data search tools enables almost instantaneous access to events and alarms.
Typical applications include exterior perimeter protection, controlling restricted areas and detecting of behaviors that are precursors to potentially dangerous or illicit situations.
• Real-time scene analysis and alarms based on user definable rules
• Rich set of detectable events and behaviors to suit a broad set of system requirements
• Accurate indoor and outdoor applications with patented technology to reduce false alarms
• High performance software that minimizes the need for excessive PC hardware
• Powerful onsite or remote configuration capabilities
• Powerful search tools for instantaneous retrieval of incidents
• Ability to provide voice, visual, relay closure, e-mail, or cell phone alarm
Honeywell Active Alert is offered in Base, Standard and Premium packages, each of which enables a different set of detectable behaviors.
Base: The Active Alert Base package includes basic people and vehicle movement behavior detections.
Standard: The Active Alert Standard package builds on the base package by adding the ability to discern more advanced behaviors such as person jumping a fence line or loitering, and vehicles parked or pulled off the road.
Premium: The Active Alert Premium package builds on the Standard package by adding the ability to detect abandoned or removed objects, and possible theft incidents.
The selection of HONEYWELL products includes the software, a variety of frame grabber PCI cards, as well as fully assembled and tested servers built around Dell computers.
A frame grabber is a device into which a video camera is connected and where the signal is digitized.
A server is a PC or computer which is dedicated to a process or processes so a computer which is used for a surveillance system is called a video server.
Many systems run off a single PC.
Factors such as the number of cameras, the size of the facility, the degree of redundancy required to assure reliable operation, the number of locations from which the video is to be viewed, and the amount of recording time desired will all affect the system architecture.
For example servers may be dedicated to interfacing cameras, or others will handle data. Some servers administer network and Internet services. Some systems will use a separate server to analyze the video data.
Chart 1 outlines the capabilities of the three packages.
By integrating video analytics with other systems such as access controls and intrusion detection systems, automated responses can be programmed for a wide range of events and situations, from a full blown crisis down to parking violation. Having robotic video to perform the bulk of the routine events leaves security personnel free to focus on the more important issues.
Applications for this software are everywhere -- learning institutions, industrial processes, military, public buildings and streets, and retail to name a few.
