Integrated Systems

Lighting with XProtect

The lighting manufacturer Raytec reports their integration with Milestone’s XProtect video management software. The UK firm says that their new range of VARIO IP network illuminators is the first range of CCTV illuminators to be integrated into a video management system.

The new integration allows management and control over your lighting with other network technologies in your security system, from one central platform. The integration is made possible via Raytec Milestone plug-in software, available free from the Raytec website via online request form.

Controlled individually or in groups, Raytec network illuminators can be configured using the Milestone Management Application, to create a ‘smart’ system designed to provide event driven lighting triggered by alarms from a camera, detector or other network device. Such illumination on on detection of a subject, for example, can reduce system running costs and environmental impact. The same illuminator can also provide a well lit area for walkers or workers.

Users can also take manual control of any single illuminator or group of illuminators using the Milestone Smart Client, during day to day operation. Settings allow for user defined lighting design to meet the requirements of any installation. Settings include:

• Individual or group control
• Configure event driven lighting triggered via alarm from 3rd party devices
• Override and take instant manual control of lighting at any time
• Power control: 20-100 per cent
• Boost: 120pc power for ten seconds
• Deterrent feature with selectable patterns and speeds
• Advanced timer functions
• Assign illuminator name, group name
• Utilise illuminator auxiliary output to trigger 3rd party devices
