Johnson Controls introduces the Tyco 360° Radar Detection, a low-cost, early threat detection family of radar sensors that can be easily integrated into existing video management systems for a more complete surveillance solution.
An ideal answer for advanced perimeter security needs, Tyco Radar 360° Detection offers long-range protection, which means quicker detection of breaches for areas seeking upgraded perimeter safety, such as power plants, transportation hubs, critical infrastructure and other governmental, industrial and commercial sites.
“The addition of radar for detection will help those with perimeter protection concerns take their situational awareness to the next level,” said Peter Ainsworth, product general manager, Video, Global, Building Technologies & Solutions, Johnson Controls.
“And knowing it can be easily and cost-effectively integrated into an existing VMS for an end-to-end solution just enhances and simplifies the process.”
With a high level of power efficiency, onboard signaling and processing, and superior performance in all weather and lighting conditions, Tyco 360° Radar Detection ensures 24/7,360-degree coverage for sites of all sizes.
The radars will be available in 250, 500, and 1,000-meter range sensors, with accessories and management software also available for purchase. Using its slew-to-cue capabilities, the radar can point pan /tilt /zoom (PTZ)cameras to a targeted location for improved surveillance.
It will also have the added benefit of quick installation involving less hardware, easy maintenance, and a low false alarm rate. More information on the Tyco 360° Radar Detection will be available in early summer 2019.
