The Redscan RLS-2020 series is a next generation short range laser scan detector that provides accurate motion detection for indoor and outdoor security applications. It expands the current award-winning REDSCAN laser sensor product series with the same proven benefits of its ‘larger’ companions but is lighter, more compact and has a range of additional control and power features similar to those enjoyed by IP Dome cameras.

With its powerful processor, the RLS-2020S can be deployed in outdoor environments, and has a number of environmental resistance features to further minimize false alarms in all kind of weather conditions.

Indoors, the sensor is able to use the high-resolution mode to detect objects as small as .9 inches in diameter. It also has a ‘throw-mode’ to detect fast-moving objects being thrown in the air, or an individual running at 10.06 mph in a straight vertical detection or at 28 mph using a 30 degree angled detection with a 25-millisecond response time.

In terms of installation and set-up, installers can now set four independent zones of detection within each sensor’s range (as opposed to its predecessor’s one-zone detection).

Innovative Compact Design-  Suitable for design-centric applications

Flexible Mounting Options- Its multi-angle adjustment and mounting options are scalable across a range of security applications providing flexibility and ease of installation

High Speed and Resolution Detection- Provides pin-point detection of small objects in indoor and outdoor applications complementing camera driven motion detection

Improved Utility Software- Streamlined for easy and flexible settings.  It also comes with multiple security detection modes for enhanced motion detection.  Can be used as an analog or IP device

IP Integrated-  Can be used as an analog or IP device.  It is POE enabled requiring only 6 watts of power and can be integrated with popular VMS, NVR's and PSIM.  Click here for more information

Elevate IP Video Surveillance and Detection-  Use the RLS-2020 to trigger cameras and motion based events that work in the dark and in tough lighting conditions challenging to video driven motion detection.  The S-model features an enhanced microprocessor that provides more powerful sensing capabilities. In indoor environments, it can be set up to identify fast travelling 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.
