Central station software integration

Tyco Security Products reports an enhanced integration between its SG-System 5 receiver and Bold Technologies’ Manitou central station software. This means that Manitou now supports visual alarm verification provided through SG-System 5 to provide central stations with the tools they need to more accurately access alarm situations and to reduce false alarms, according to the firms.

The SG-System 5 IP-based receiver supports visual verification via its compatibility with the DSC PowerSeries Neo platform and wireless PowerG PIR Security motion detectors with camera. When an alarm is triggered, the SG-System 5 receiver can send still images – one clip every two second for a ten second post-alarm clip – into Manitou for assessment. The systems’ integration can help to reduce the possibility of costly false alarms, while at the same time providing information in a real alarm the companies say.

Aitor Gauna, Intrusion Product Marketing Manager, EMEA, Tyco Security Products said: “Our partnership with the Manitou software from Bold Technologies provides central stations with the optimised solutions available to help central station operators manage and quickly respond to alarms. Our SG-System 5 receiver reduces the cost of ownership to central stations by cutting down on costly false alarms.”

Bold Technologies’ flagship product, Manitou, centralises alarm handling functions to provide “One Point of Control,” removing the requirement for central stations to maintain multiple systems and allowing reductions in data entry time, operator error and training over multiple systems, the product firm says. Manitou incorporates video, access control, GPS and PERS devices into a single interface for the central station operator.

Rod Coles, CEO of Bold Technologies, said: “We are excited to work with Tyco Security Products to enable visual verification in Manitou through SG-System 5. The SG-System 5 is built on the Sur-Gard quality standards and is one of the more popular receivers that our customers utilise. Offering this enhancement functionality will mutually benefit our customers.”

SG-System 5 features integrated redundancy and future-proofing through its capacity to monitor up to 1,474,560 IP cellular or Ethernet communicators through upgradeable memory or license keys. Visit
