What is the SightLogix Outdoor Video System?
The SightLogix Outdoor Video Security System detects outdoor intrusions over site perimeters. The system can be made up of two products which work together for accurate, cost-effective situational awareness around critical outdoor assets, with greatly lowered nuisance alarms and high detection accuracy. The two products are the SightSensor and the SightTracker.
What is the SightSensor?
SightSensors are fixed, IP-based smart thermal cameras with embedded video analytics powered by a high degree of video processing. The SightSensor detects intruders that violate rules that you have defined, placing a red box on intruders and tracking them through the field of view. By tightly integrating the imager, video analytics and video processing, SightSensors are able to deliver accurate detection over large areas in all weather, climates, and conditions.
Video processing also powers SightLogix’s video analytic accuracy features. These include:
How do I see video and alarms?
Video and target information, GPS-location, speed, location, bearing, and other data is sent from the SightSensor over the network to a Video Management System (VMS) or Physical Security Information Management (PSIM) system for display and alarm management.
Does it work with my VMS?
SightSensors are compatible with most major VMS and PSIM systems. Click here for our current technology partners.
Do SightSensors have fixed lenses?
Yes. Thermal SightSensors are available in several fixed lenses depending on the distance required. SightSurvey is used to determine the correct focal length to ensure proper coverage at each area of your site’s perimeter.
What is the power draw?
The SightSensor draws about 6 watts of power, and works over standard 24V VAC/DC. The SightSensor also works over PoE. An analog-out option is provided for connecting to legacy video systems.
What is the image resolution?
Standard SightSensors use a 320×240 thermal imager to detect intruders over very large distances; SightSensor XA’s use a 640×480 imager to detect intruders over very large areas.
How do I classify an alarm if it’s detected so far away?
SightSensors use thermal imagers and internal video analytics to detect intruders, and present a very clear thermal image, day and night. For up-close alarm assessment in color, the SightTracker automatically steers and zooms a PTZ camera onto the target. This provides detection and video verification in a single system.

What is the SightTracker?
SightTracker provides automated PTZ tracking and is usually installed on the same pole as the SightSensor. SightTrackers use the GPS-based target information from a SightSensor for autotracking PTZ functionality to steer and zoom a third-party PTZ (such as from Bosch or Pelco). Fixed SightSensors provide long-range detection, and the SightTracker provides up-close, automated identification.
SightTrackers draw 12 watts of power and work over standard 24V VAC/DC.
What Software do I need for the SightLogix system?
SightMonitor is a configuration and monitoring software for devices in the SightLogix system (at left). It consists of Coordination System (CS) server software and one or more SightMonitor clients. The CS server is usually installed on the same computer as the VMS.
What is SightSurvey?
SightSurvey is a web-based design tool that uses the Google maps interface to place SightLogix cameras on your actual site. It determines lens sizes, helps make sure that the blind spot under the camera is covered, and provides a price quote and camera count.
SightSurvey is a free tool for designers, A&E’s, consultants, integrators and security professionals. Register for SightSurvey here.
