A More Informed View - Visonic's RealAlarm, Product Spotlight By Pete Conway
High false alarm rates are serious problem as they affect monitoring service provider's time and resources. Additionally, the ACPO policy adds to the call for verified alarms. Whilst most systems use sequential confirmation as the ability to filter out unwanted alarms is further enhanced. The RealAlarm solution includes a Next CAM device - a PIR motion detector coupled with a CCTV camera in a single housing. When detection occurs, the camera is triggered automatically and captures images. These images are sent to the ARC along with the alarm activation data.
