Trial of passive infrared sensors deemed a success

OPTEX A trial of outdoor, wireless passive infrared sensors (PIRS) could lead to more deployments in residential security applications. OPTEX has been working with Wolverhampton-based Amron Security to protect an isolated residential property in the west Midlands countryside in the UK. As the home is exposed on all four sides by main roads and fields, the owner was concerned the property, including detached garages, would be a target for intruders.

Paul Bishop, contracts manager and senior installer at Amron Security, showed initial scepticism when OPTEX proposed using wireless PIRS technology. He says: As an installer I feel more comfortable using outdoor sensors only when alarms can be visually verified remotely, as it is far from ideal for false or nuisance alarms to trigger with no possibility for verification. However, I haven t experienced any false alarm problems with these outdoor PIRS, which have performed flawlessly. According to Bishop the technology has performed to such a high standard that Amron Security has started specifying OPTEX s sensors at further sites. Since the installation in 2016 there has not been a single false alarm. Paul Bishop, contracts manager and senior installer, Amron Security The PIRS specified by OPTEX include five of its VXI-R and two FTN-R sensors. They have some of the lowest false alarm rates and highest detection rates in the industry. Both types are battery-operated detectors that wirelessly connect to a Ricochet-enabled alarm panel via OPTEX s pre-configured and pre-connected Ricochet-enabled wireless transmitter, the BGR-01, which is fitted into the back of each sensor. The VXI-R sensors have a 12m wide angle of detection, while the FTN-R sensors provide a shorter detection range in a curtain-like pattern.

Combining the two variants optimises the level of security defence around a property. All of the tamper-proof sensors are equipped with OPTEX s latest analytics programming that includes small animal tolerance and enhanced weather protection to avoid false alarms. The battery life is around three years. Amron Security maintains the sensors and provides a remote monitoring service. Since the installation in 2016 there has not been a single false alarm, says Bishop. OPTEX is a Japan-headquartered global supplier of security detectors based on IR, for indoor and outdoor applications.

ASSA ABLOY s Aperio locks now integrate with Tyco access control systems

integration news A technology partnership between ASSA ABLOY, which provides door locks, and Tyco Security Products has enabled the integration of Aperio wireless lock technology with Tyco s security and event management system. The integration ensures Aperio wireless RFID locks communicate with Tyco s C-CURE 9000 via iSTAR Ultra door controllers. Aperio locks have no need for additional wiring so can be installed in doors and entrances with little disruption to operations.

A link between iSTAR Ultra door controllers and an Aperio wireless hub enables the locks to communicate directly with C-CURE 9000, which is updated in real-time to ensure control of and visibility of activities at doors and entrances at all times. AES 128-bit encryption ensures data security. Rafael Schrijvers, access control product marketing manager, EMEA, for Tyco Security Products, says: C-CURE 9000 and Aperio wireless locks are increasingly being specified to work together on a wide range of security projects. The deep level of integration achieved between the two technologies will ensure systems integrators will now find it much easier to implement a combined solution. A similar level of integration has already been achieved between ASSA ABLOY s Aperio and Tyco Security Products Kantech Entrapass and CEM AC2000 access control software. Software House security and event management systems from Tyco Security Products are part of Johnson Controls, a global technology and industrial firm. Software House s C-CURE software portfolio works with various reliable controllers to provide security and event management.
