Tempe, AZ, Jan. 23, 2006 — Southwest Microwave introduces Perimeter Security Manager, an advanced security monitoring and control system offering sophisticated integration capabilities.
The real-time, Windows-based system is intended for facilities seeking to integrate and manage several perimeter security devices at a single location or multiple sites. With Perimeter Security Manager, security professionals can monitor Southwest Microwave’s complete range of intrusion detection equipment, and offers high level interface to a broad range of auxiliary security devices, including CCTV cameras, Digital Video Recorders (DVRs), perimeter lighting, pagers and gates.
The system provides multiple site control, multiple workstations and remote, password-protected system access. Perimeter Security Manager also allows plug-and-play integration of security devices, so modules are immediately recognized with no hardwiring required.
Another feature that the system’s intuitive graphical user interface (GUI), which features high-resolution images, live video, graphical maps, customizable screens and event diagnostics. The user-friendly display with optional touch-screen capability lets operators view a detailed, 2D site rendering with real-time active icons that clearly indicate the status and location of security system devices. These icons are actually shaped like the devices for quick visual recognition.
Operators have complete system control. Using the menu, they can move cameras using pan, tilt and zoom settings as well as control lighting protocols and view stored images in the system’s database.
The system’s automated alarm-handling capability reduces operator guesswork, says the company. If an incident occurs, operators are notified with an alarm and provided with step-by-step, pre-programmed instructions on how to initiate an appropriate response based on that specific security breach.
In addition to being able to monitor multiple sites, the Perimeter Security Manager has a unique “migrating server” architecture, allowing one or more workstations to become a backup server in the event the master PC is disabled.
