A New Era In Area Sensing And Critical Infrastructure Security Solutions

Innovative laser scanning technology from OPTEX, can now be integrated with the Genetec Restricted Security Area (RSA) Surveillance module, to deliver a new era in security and detection in outdoor and indoor environments for airports and other critical infrastructure sites. Via the RSA Surveillance module, OPTEX’s award-winning REDSCAN laser sensors can now send real-time events and alarm data to the Genetec unified security platform, Security Center, alerting control room operators to any intrusion in the surveillance area.

Optex To Extend Its New Laser Range And Certification Program

Leading sensor manufacturer OPTEX has announced the global roll out of its outdoor and high-resolution indoor laser sensor RLS-2020S, complementing its next-generation REDSCAN mini sensor that features a 20x20m detection range. The S-model features an enhanced microprocessor that provides more powerful sensing capabilities. In indoor environments, it can be set up to identify fast traveling objects or very small objects. This information can be relayed to a Video Management Software (VMS) to provide a quicker, more accurate response. The sensor is PoE compliant, and can send alarms via traditional relay outputs or by using its IP based Redwall event code that is integrated with all major VMS platforms.

Optex Targets Transport Security

Next week at Transport Security Expo, Olympia, London, Optex will be exhibiting complete detection and access control solutions tailored for the transportation sector. This includes high security intrusion detection systems for perimeter protection; access control, directional analysis, and thrown object detection systems to protect controlled areas; and obstacle/people detection for railway safety applications.

Optex Redhawk Intruder Tracker Wins Award

Redhawk, an innovative software application developed by The Hawkeye Effect that maps and tracks multiple intruders to a precise GPS coordinate, recently won the intruder alarm category of the Benchmark Innovation Awards at Ifsec. Redhawk is a software application that works in conjunction with the Milestone Xprotect video management software (VMS) platform, with the Optex […]

Optex Integrates With Exacq For Minimizing Video False Alarms

Optex Co., Ltd, a leading manufacturer of security infrared and laser technology, announced today the integration of their sensors and detectors with the exacqVision Video Management System (VMS) from Exacq Technologies. The result will minimize video false alarms for outdoor perimeter applications. Optex detection products are integrated into the exacqVision Professional and Enterprise VMS software […]

Optex Integrates New Solution That Provides Advanced Tracking Capbilities

OPTEX will be demonstrating at ASIS 2013 an advanced security solution that gives end users unprecedented capabilities in tracking and responding to intruders through tight integration of OPTEX’s Redscan laser detector, Milestone XProtect video management software, and RedHawk software from The Hawkeye Effect. The integrated solution not only allows precise auto PTZ tracking and response, but also provides a mapping capability that tracks objects in real time. “Integration is a key to achieving the best security,” says Mac Kokobo CEO at OPTEX. “Each company brings specific expertise and industry leadership to security applications. But the real power is seen when you combine and integrate the various capabilities into a single solution. Thanks to our Redscan laser detector, Milestone’s open platform, the IP video cameras, and The HawkEye Effect geo-spatial mapping together bring unmatched levels of intruder detection, tracking, and response.” The Redscan laser detector can be seamlessly integrated into the Milestone XProtect VMS, including defined zones and events codes, so that PTZ cameras can be triggered to view the intrusion. Other responses, such as alarms, access control lockdowns, or security lighting, can be defined on a zone-by-zone basis. “The Milestone Integration Platform (MIP) architecture enables this combined solution with OPTEX and The Hawkeye Effect, providing unique new tools for taking action. We value the strong partnership between us to deliver innovative technology to customers in the security industry,” says Reinier Tuinzuing, Strategic Alliance Manager, Americas, for Milestone Systems. By adding RedHawk geo-spatial software from The Hawkeye Effect, users achieve […]
