New SpotterRF Product Enables Install of 100 Acre, 360º Perimeter Security System in ONE Day

LAS VEGAS—ISC West—April 9, 2013— Typical perimeter security installations require weeks to install and integrate, but with the introduction of the new CC8A contact closure box and the Spotter C40 Compact Surveillance Radar (CSR) this same job was completed in one day.

The Integration Partner installing the system reviewed many alternative solutions. He states, “In the process of specifying and implementing security solutions for our client, we entertained concepts and proposals from some of the largest names in the business. All of these ‘solutions’ would have required extensive additions to infrastructure, a very large number of individual components and weeks of installation and integration. After reviewing numerous proposals and demonstrations, we came to the conclusion that none of these approaches would provide the level of security and real time feedback we were looking for.”

SpotterRF personnel were invited to demonstrate the operation of the Spotters and within minutes of arriving on site were showing the detection and tracking capabilities of the C40. SpotterRF was then selected for the project and three weeks later returned to work with the integrator installing five C40 radars and the new CC8A for a highly sensitive luxury estate in a single day. The installed system protects 7,700 linear feet of perimeter, giving live feedback on walking personnel and vehicles in 100 acres around the estate.

The CC8A receives track information from each connected Spotter and allows the user to create and define alert zones on a web user interface that is similar to Google Maps. When the radar detects a moving object in the defined alert zone, the CC8A closes a dry contact and sends an urgent email or sounds an audible alert. This is all done to leverage existing investments in Video Management Systems (VMS), reducing retrofit costs.

The Integration Partner was pleased to affirm, “The SpotterRF system provides the real time monitoring and notification capabilities we require. After all was said and done, SpotterRF provided a simple, yet comprehensive solution that required a small fraction of the equipment, expense and complexity that others would have required to approach Spotter’s level of performance.”

Spotter radar units come in four sizes, weighs as little as 1.5 lbs. each, use less energy than a light bulb (just 8W each), and communicates with Google Earth and an Internet connected PC, smartphone or tablet. Integration with existing IR cameras, video analytics, or other Intrusion Detection System (IDS) greatly reduces costs and increases effectiveness for protecting critical infrastructure.
