September 28, 2018 Hikvision, the world leading provider of innovative security products and solutions, has released news of the latest product range to hit its portfolio, the AXHub intruder alarm system.
Part of the Hikvision AX-Series, the brand-new wireless system stylishly caters for any residential and small commercial applications by seamlessly connecting security and video on one-platform.
“Hikvision is pioneering the one-platform revolution for security systems that enables HD video verification of events, remote control to arm and disarm the alarm, as well as the ability to switch between alarm system and video like never before,” said Jiang Feng Zhi, Head of Hikvision’s alarms division.
Video and intrusion system in one platform
This advanced synergy of technologies is delivered in a small, compact and discreet panel that delivers multi-configuration methods, full control and setup via Hik-Connect smart device application and iVMS as well as video verification through revolutionary Intruder Verification as a Service (IVaaS).
Integration is at the core of the AXHub, utilising Cloud technology to combine intrusion and video like never before.
Where other video verification methods on the market are reliant on sending low-quality static imagery to confirm events, IVaaS links previously separate video and intruder systems to one platform, providing a 7 second clip in the event of an alarm; 5 seconds pre-alarm, and 2 seconds post alarm.
To achieve this, there are two options; via the cloud, or innovatively connecting up to two cameras directly to the AXHub for on-board video verification.
This enables Hikvision’s video and intrusion systems to seamlessly deliver video footage directly to the user through Hik-Connect or iVMS, or directly to a Central Monitoring Station (CMS).
By delivering video to users or a CMS via email, smart device and desktop applications, they can switch to Full-HD live streams to verify action can be take much faster and more reliably in the event of an activation.
Hik-Connect compatibility also allows full control of the system from anywhere; enabling users to remotely arm, disarm and monitor, as well as check history and receive push notifications of any events.
“When one manufacturer provides the components for each part of the system, we don’t need to try and make things work together; we aren’t ‘integrating’ systems,” said Jiang.
He continues: “The video and intruder systems are designed to work seamlessly with each other, and this is what we have achieved in the AXHub.”
Compatible with any Hikvision video or intrusion device, this allows the ideal security solution to be fitted every time; covering every vantage point.
Award-winning intrusion technologies
The system supports up to 32 wireless inputs from a wide range that includes internal and external detectors, contacts, keyfobs, life safety sensors and much more.
The extensive wireless range of intrusion devices feature award-winning, proven and patented intrusion technologies, for complete confidence and peace of mind, with easy installation using signal strength indicators and one-push-to-learn.
The AXHub also utilises 3EasyFit, a technique to speed up initial installation, and supports voice-guided setup for configuration and operation; making the entire installation process fast and efficient. The local voice prompts will also alert the user to any events on the system, while voice calls for alarms can be configured as well.
The variety of communication pathways available with the AXHub is unmatched, offering LAN, Wi- Fi, GPRS and 3G/4G connections with on-board communication modules and connectors for a simpler and more cost-effective installation. While with multiport IP communications, the AXHub can also communicate simultaneously with multiple devices, to ensure alarm messages are sent to all that need them.
