Security Magazine Readers Choose SightSensor as Most Relevant Camera Product
Princeton, NJ (Feb 2 2011) — Selections for the 2010 Security Products Readers’ Choice Awards have been announced by Security Products Magazineand the SightLogix ® SightSensor® intelligent video camera has been named as an Award Winner. The Readers’ Choice Award recipients represent products deemed to be most interesting and relevant as voted on throughout the year by the magazine’s readers.
“It’s an honor to have our SightSensor recognized by Security Products readers as the most relevant and interesting camera offering,” said John Romanowich, SightLogix President and CEO. “The SightSensor was developed to fill a market need for reliable and cost-effective outdoor security solutions. Awards such as this validate our offering as the product of choice for meeting these challenges.”
Long and wide-range outdoor SightSensors provide a high probability of detection with low nuisance alarm rates while lowering overall security costs, and are packaged to operate in harsh weather and climate conditions. Each SightSensor camera incorporates either a visible or a thermal imager, electronic stabilization, on-board image processing, video analytics software, and geospatial target tracking, all sealed inside a ruggedized NEMA 4X nitrogen-purged housing.
SightSensor cameras are registered to the scene with GPS coordinates so they can accurately determine target size, bearing, and speed of detected objects, reducing nuisance alarms. SightLogix systems also use geo-registration to display the coordinates of detected targets onto a sitemap for situational awareness, and to steer PTZ cameras to automatically zoom and track detected objects.
By providing a high level of imaging processing, each SightSensor camera can cover wider areas or greater distances; as much as three times the coverage area of other surveillance cameras. This means that SightLogix systems require fewer cameras, reducing the supporting infrastructure (poles, trenching, networking, power, etc.) and associated costs. As a result, SightSensor cameras lower installation, infrastructure and overall project costs by one-third versus alternatives.
