Alarm products improve protection of homes and businesses
Alarm systems have been available for decades, but many solutions offer little functionality beyond a sensor triggering an alert in the event of a break in. To take alarms to the next level, Hikvision is bringing a number of new and innovative technologies to market, allowing you to meet your customers’ home and business security requirements more fully and to grow your alarm business.
No one can stay alert for a potential home or business security breach every hour of every day. That’s why alarm solutions are critically important for your customers in terms of identifying and reacting to any incident in the fastest and most effective way possible.
But not all situations require the same kind of alarm system – which is why we offer a broad range of alarm solutions and technologies for different customer requirements. In some cases, for example, a customer needs to be aware when the perimeter of a site or location is breached. In other situations, they may need to monitor entrances or site perimeters, to track multiple intruders at the same time, or to speed up responses in the event of attacks in buildings or in public spaces.
To address this broad range of end-customer requirements, Hikvision has created a broad portfolio of innovative alarm solutions that are sophisticated, automated, and always fit for purpose. These allow you to:
A break-in at a customer’s home can cause major upset, as well as material and financial losses. With Hikvision Intrusion Alarm solutions, they can get peace of mind that their home is properly protected.
To maximize home security, our solutions combine a wide range of integrated detectors, including door and window-contact detectors, break-glass detectors, vibration detectors, smoke, and temperature detectors.
Customers can also stream video from their security cameras direct to their mobile phones with Hikvision’s pioneering Intruder Verification as a Service (IVaaS) technology, which seamlessly unites video with cutting-edge intrusion detection capabilities in a single platform.
The Hikvision Intrusion Alarm solution includes wireless alarm control panels and peripherals that make it fast and easy to deploy in home environments. Wired products are also available for small commercial applications.
For residential applications, end users can connect into the alarm control panel, receive alerts, and watch streamed video from CCTV cameras on their handheld device. They can also configure their home security system remotely and view alarm reports.
Customers with large sites to secure may need to track multiple intruders concurrently. You can give them this capability with Hikvision Security Radar, which offers a detecting distance of up to 120 meters and a 120° detecting angle. That means your customers can cover sites of 15,000 square meters and – most importantly – they can track up to 64 targets simultaneously.
To make life easy for your customers’ security teams, they can define the different areas you want to monitor, such as the warehouse, the car park, the perimeter or entrance, and others as needed. One Hikvision Radar can link up to 4 PTZ dome cameras at the same time to check multiple targets via video. With Hikvision, your customers also get an extremely low rate of false alarms. This means they can focus on real intruders rather than pets or other animals, or weather interference such as fog, rain or snow.
The best way your customers can minimize safety risk and damage to their assets is to stop intruders while they are still outside your site or building – and that’s what Hikvision Perimeter Protection is all about. To stop criminals in their tracks, we use two parallel infra-red bars that have to be broken at the same time for the alarm to be sounded.
With two infra-red bars, your customers can filter out all kinds of false alarms, from small animals crossing their perimeter, to falling leaves or flickering lights – which means they always know when an intrusion threat is real.
In further, our solutions are temperature and weather hardened, enabling deployment outside, in all kinds of perimeter locations. Your customers can also monitor their perimeter security remotely via their handheld devices.
An emergency situation can unfold anywhere, in a school, on a university campus, in a park, or in the street. To help security teams work effectively, and ensure that people feel safe wherever they are, Hikvision has created our Emergency Alarm system.
This solution allows a person in an emergency situation or attack to call for help by pushing a button, or by broadcasting a call for help to police or emergency response teams, or both. The Hikvision solution has a built-in camera and audio recording facility to collect evidence of the events taking place.
In addition to these benefits, our solution is available in different formats and can be integrated with joined-up ‘safe city’ technologies, including dome cameras, license-plate recognition cameras, low-light cameras, and more.
This kind of solution is already being to improve safety in cities, parks, universities and schools worldwide and can be deployed in a wide range of other customer scenarios.
Fit-for-purpose alarm solutions for every application
Based on these four key application areas, Hikvision alarm solutions cover all of your customers’ home security and business security requirements. While our Intrusion Alarm solutions protect homes and small businesses against break-ins, our Security Radar, Perimeter Protection, and Emergency Alarm solutions enable protection of people and assets and rapid responses on a far larger scale – either for large sites or in smart-city environments.
