Swann Improves Security System Accuracy With Thermal Sensing
Swann have announced that their new security system, capable of detecting motion using thermal-sensing, will be coming to Australia.
First unveiled at CES in January, Swann’s Thermal-Sensing HD Security System captures and records Full HD 1080p video footage from up to eight cameras.
“This solution is ideal for monitoring homes, offices, small businesses and retail stores, to deter, capture and catch thieves, and cut the cost of crime,” said Jeremy Stewart, VP of Global Marketing at Swann.
Swann claims the thermal sensing capabilities of the system allow more than a full year’s worth of security events to be captured on its 1TB internal hard drive.
The heat-based PIR motion detection sensors called ‘True Detect’ are able to accurately detect large heat-generating objects like people, large pets and cars, then begin recording and send a push notification to a smartphone or tablet.
“Between our jobs and spending time with family or friends, the current world we live can get chaotic and find us always on the go. Our HomeSafe™ View app puts CCTV monitoring, in the palm of your hands, wherever you may be in the world,” Stewart said.
“With the combination of True Detect technology and remote viewing capabilities, you can now react to a serious situation if and when it is happening.”
Other features include night vision with a range of up to 30 metres and an IP66 rating for protection from the elements.
The Swann Thermal-Sensing Security System with PRO-1080MSB cameras will be sold at JB Hi-Fi, Harvey Norman, Officeworks, Bunnings, The Good Guys and Bing Lee.
Three combinations are available: a four-channel system with four cameras (RRP $549.95), an eight-channel system with six cameras (RRP $699.95), or an eight-channel system with eight cameras ($799.95).
