Nedap reinvests in AEOS with next-generation controllers

Nedap reinvests in AEOS with next-generation controllers

Editor / Provider: Nedap | Updated: 11/4/2014 | Article type: Security 50

Nedap introduces the new AEOS Blue hardware line. This new generation of controllers builds on the successful AEOS Security Management Platform, the first software-based platform for security management. While other security manufacturers pursue growth through acquisitions, Nedap maintains its focus on ongoing investment in this platform. Now on the sixth generation of controller, with AEOS Blue Nedap once again unlocks a new realm of software-driven functionality. The AEOS Blue has the simplicity and elegance you expect, and will also deliver cost savings for both the installer and the customer.

With AEOS Blue, Nedap launches an energy-efficient, powerful hardware line consisting of door controller, door interface and power, for a self-contained solution that can handle the simplest to the most complex security needs. Aside from the hardware, another new feature of the AEOS Blue is the completely redesigned and simplified software licensing model, which makes the price of AEOS Blue more competitive than ever for its range of functionalities, such as the control of air locks and revolving gates. The new AEOS Blue software licensing model makes the calculation and design of security systems perfect and correct every time.

Most powerful controller in security market
Once installed, additional security features can be added to the AEOS Blue at any time. For example, the comprehensive selection of AEOS software components allow secure doors to be customised easily for holding areas and camera surveillance. And no additional investments in new access control hardware are required: Nedap has also made the most powerful controller in the security industry compatible with PoE+. Even power is provided through the existing network infrastructure, saving on installation costs and eliminating the need for installation of separate power feeds.

“Nedap believes that the best security systems are designed as IT systems. That's why 15 years ago, we decided to separate software and hardware on the controller. That means we can not only define the functionality of the hardware through the software, but can also easily adapt that functionality to changing requirements and needs. Just like you would expect from your computer,” says Albert Dercksen, Manager Research & Development of Nedap. “Of course, the hardware determines how much you can get out of your software. Our new cost-effective hardware line, AEOS Blue, puts all the functionality of the AEOS software in your hands.”

Networked security system for major hotel development in Turkey

Networked security system for major hotel development in Turkey

Editor / Provider: Bosch | Updated: 10/31/2014 | Article type: Commercial Markets

Bosch Security Systems has delivered a networked security solution for one of Turkey's major hotel developments: the new Hilton complex in Bursa. It combines the 5-star Hilton Bursa Convention Center & Spa with the 3-star Hampton by Hilton Bursa. Located close to Bursa city center, historical heritage sites and the business district, the visually striking Hilton Bursa Convention Center and Spa offers splendid views of the majestic Ulu Mountain and is only a short distance from the Intercity Highway, linking the major cities of Ankara, Istanbul and Izmir.

The two hotels are located next to each other, but operated as two separate entities. However, the management required an integrated security system covering both Hotels and allowing central management and operations.

The 5-star hotel features 187 guest rooms, twelve meeting rooms, two ballrooms with capacities of 1,200 and 800 people respectively, a spa and wellness center and multiple restaurants. Hampton by Hilton Bursa offers 107 guest rooms, a fitness center, a restaurant and a fully equipped meeting hall.

To protect guests, employees and visitors of both hotels, Bosch partner Ateksis designed an integrated security solution with fire detection systems, access control, video surveillance and voice evacuation. All these systems are networked and centrally managed and operated via Bosch's Building Integration System (BIS). Next to the security systems, Bosch also delivered thermo technological equipment, such as three Buderus heating boilers and their control technology.

Ateksis implemented the Modular Fire Panel 5000 Series in both hotels, which can be operated independently but are managed as a single integrated solution. In public areas such as lobbies, meeting rooms and ballrooms, Bosch's series of invisible fire detectors were used to support the classy architecture. For the same reason, the integrator chose to use elegant dome cameras in these areas. In total, approximately 250 IP cameras were installed together with the Bosch Video Recording Manager as a distributed network video recorder solution. The cameras support intelligent video analysis to alert the operator whenever specific, pre-defined events occur. Private areas with limited access are secured by Bosch's AMC access control systems, using card readers for general purposes and fingerprint readers in high security areas such as the IT room.

In case of an emergency, the digital PRAESIDEO public address and evacuation system from Bosch can be used to deliver intelligible evacuation instructions. All 59 zones of the system, matching the zones of the fire alarm system in the building, can be reached individually by PRAESIDEO to ensure targeted addressing. In addition to the security solution, Ateksis also implemented a comprehensive Audio/Video system in the ballrooms and the conference center.

With the networked and integrated security solution covering both hotels, the operator was able to combine highest security standards with great operational efficiency. Using specific cameras and smoke detectors also allowed making the entire solution very inconspicuous, not disturbing the luxury ambience of the hotels.

Dahua launches 4K camera

Dahua launches 4K camera

Editor / Provider: Dahua | Updated: 10/28/2014 | Article type: Security 50

Dahua Technology officially introduces its first 4K network camera IPC-HF81200E, marching into UHD (Ultra HD) era.

Actually, 4K is not a new word, especially to the consumer electronics market. Defined and approval by International Telecommunication Union (ITU), a 4K camera should offer resolution at 3840 x 2160 with high color fidelity in a 16:9 format using progressive scanning at 25/30 Hz.

In other words, a 4K camera provides four times the resolution of 1080p, rendering superior image detail and surprisingly exquisite colors, which is ideal for large area monitoring, such as parking lot, railway station, safe city and etc.

Dahua 4K camera IPC-HF81200E fully complies with the above standard, it adopts 12.0-Megapixel sensor, incorporating with high-performance DSP to provide extraordinary image quality. Meanwhile, the camera offers 12MP (4000 x 3000) at 15 fps and 4K at 30fps preview with a suggested bandwidth at 8Mbps, ensuring a smooth live view without network resource waste; in addition, the camera provides triple streams options to satisfy various demand in application.

The IPC-HF81200E also supports multi-functions such as ultra-defog, ROI and intelligently detections, including face detections, tripwire, intrusion and scene change, which can smartly send alerts to end-users when any suspicious incident or behavior detected.

For example, there are two-fold benefits to set an intrusion area at a gas station entrance: on one hand, stuff can immediately get to the refueling spot and serve the driver as the second he received the triggered alert, which directly increases profit; on the other hand, any hidden dangers such as smoking or phone call can be observed and stopped to further ensure the safety.

“Dahua is among the first manufacturers to introduce a 4K camera, making the UHD surveillance to something real,” said Peter Pan, Product Manager at Dahua Technology. “Next year, we plan to render more selective possibilities to the market so that our customers can have more alternatives and find the right 4K camera to best meet their specific demands, and a high C/P ratio 4K camera will come out in this November.”
