Simple way to add visual verification to your existing system

The Bridge will pair any ONVIF camera with those zones and send video to your central station operator. Any zone type, any detector, any panel and only when the system is armed. When an alarm zone is tripped, the Bridge is sent the information and begins to upload pre and post-alarm video to the monitoring portal. The alarm signal is sent to your central station by the alarm panel and the central station software can access our monitoring portal within 5 seconds.

Introducing Intelligent Visual Monitoring by OPTEX

Instant verification for a quicker response

There are many instances where the intrusion alarm goes off and it is unclear what could have caused it. By adding video capability, you can either confirm the alarm or dismiss it. The speed with which an alarm can be verified is critical; the quicker the operator can make a decision, the quicker the police can be called or a security officer sent to your site. This is why the Intelligent Video Monitoring solution presents the video within a few seconds.

How will the solution benefit you?

Better understanding of the eventsKeep your existing equipmentIntegrity of the alarm system remains the same
The ability to add a visual element to your monitored alarm will give you the full understanding of the situation and allow you to make a quicker and more informed decision. It won’t be a blind alarm anymore, needing you to guess the importance of the event. The solution will work with your existing alarms system and IP cameras or DVR as long the video devices are ONVIF compliant. It allows you to upgrade to a complete visual verification system without having to replace your existing equipment, keeping the cost down. Adding The OPTEX Bridge and enabling visual verification via the Intelligent Visual Monitoring portal does not affect the integrity of the existing alarm system. The grading and certification of the alarm system remains unchanged.

Ensuring that your privacy is protected too

If privacy mode is enabled, all human movement inside the house will be displayed to operators in silhouette form to guarantee privacy. When the system is armed, and motion is detected, the actual picture will be sent to the end-user via SMS text with corresponding DISPATCH or DISREGARD prompts. If DISPATCH is selected, normal police dispatch protocol is initiated. Operators will then, and only then, have access to the actual video and forward the actual picture to first responders giving them a confirmed entry priority signal and an actual picture of the person they are looking for.

What the operator sees and what you see
