Innovative security system developed locally
29 January 2014, News

Local electronics developer and manufacturer, Cellsecure Interactive Management Solutions, has developed a security system that it believes not only represents an innovation in the South African market, but is also a world first.

The Cellsecure Miter, which will be available from July, incorporates elements consisting of an intrusion detection panel, built-in power supply, multiple wired and wireless peripherals, LCD keypads, a SBC (single board computer) with Microsoft Windows operating system, up to eight IP CCTV cameras, up to five microphones and full two-way voice communications. According to the company, this solution surpasses any existing alarm intrusion panel and provides the user with full remote control of all elements.

The desire to design and develop a new panel came about when the company decided to upgrade its proven E12 range of intrusion detection alarm panels. New alternate or secondary communications to support primary GSM SMS/GPRS signalling consists of MMS, TCP IP, DTMF, RF and GPS communications.

Whereas a standard alarm intrusion system normally sends an alarm condition to a monitoring control room via an RF transmitter or DTMF telephone dialler, which in turn dispatches a vehicle to investigate, the Miter operates in a far more dynamic way, whereby any activation or trigger of a wired or wireless peripheral results in customisable, simultaneous signals being transmitted to a monitoring control room as well as up to five mobile phones.

The trigger also activates up to eight IP cameras which record (over a pre-determined time) and transfer footage to the camera’s SD card as well as to the Cellsecure remote server. Up to 100 authorised mobile phone users are able to retrieve the footage either as single shot stills or video clips. The user may activate the cameras via Android, iPhone or PC with modem for continual video streaming.

In addition to viewing, the user is also able to listen in via the microphones and to make voice calls via built-in speakers. Incorporating the SBC allows the system to be used as a full BMS (building management system), while onboard relays provide the facility to remotely activate electrical appliances such as internal/external lights, air conditioners, sliding gates, electronic door locks, smoke cloaks etc.

The system’s onboard RF receiver accommodates local and international frequencies. Dual SIM cards with tri- or quad- band GSM engines are supported, and GSM and RF jamming detection are provided, with notification via alternate communication mediums.
