VANCOUVER, CANADA, June 19, 2017 - Avigilon Corporation (“Avigilon”) (TSX: AVO), provider of trusted security solutions, today announced it will preview the new Avigilon Presence Detector at IFSEC 2017.
The Avigilon Presence Detector (APD) is a sensor that combines self-learning analytics with impulse radar technology to accurately detect the presence of a person even if they have stopped moving or are hidden. This sensor is designed for indoor locations such as ATM rooms and other closed indoor vestibules within banks, pharmacies, health care facilities and retail stores, and can accurately detect a person’s presence through blankets, cardboard, wood and drywall.
“Customers such as financial institutions face challenges in maintaining a safe and welcoming environment for their patrons,” said James Henderson, Avigilon’s Chief Operating Officer. “By accurately detecting and alerting security operators of events such as a person hiding or sleeping in an unwanted location, the APD provides an exceptional solution for maintaining safe and secure operations.”
With a small and discreet design the APD can be hidden above ceiling panels or behind interior walls. Available in surface, corner or wall mount options it uses standard IP security camera infrastructure and cabling, making installation fast and easy. The indoor impulse radar sensor, combined with self-learning analytics, scans and learns the environment, continuously adapting to reduce false positive events, providing extremely high accuracy in detecting the presence of a person at distances up to 9 meters from the sensor.
“The launch of the APD marks an important milestone in Avigilon’s development of new IoT driven security solutions,” said Mahesh Saptharishi, Avigilon’s Chief Technology Officer. “The combination of sophisticated radar and analytics technology helps to solve the challenge of accurate human presence detection in constrained indoor areas where traditional devices may be limited.”
The APD is expected to be available for order in the third quarter of this year.
