In the case of the Hikvision AX PRO range, this is achieved with Intrusion Verification as a Service (IVaaS) technology. This allows homeowners and businesses to view a short, 7-second video clip or up to 20 photos to verify if an alert has been triggered by a real security threat. False alarms are further reduced with smart detection technologies such as "Pet-Immunity", which ensures that animals won't set off alarms.
4. Is the alarm system easy to install, configure, and operate?
Homeowners and small businesses need security solutions that are very easy to deploy and use. However, many solutions are actually quite complex to install and configure, which creates additional workloads and stress.
To make things as easy and convenient as possible, the Hikvision AX PRO intrusion alarm system is designed to be extremely easy to install, use, and maintain. The AX PRO wireless hub and detectors – including PIRCAMs, indoor and outdoor detectors, and other peripherals can be installed using screws or glue (depending on the mounting surface).
In further, the whole system can then be easily configured and managed via the Hik-ProConnect platform, and Hik-Connect mobile app.
5. Can alarm detectors be integrated easily with other security products as needed?
For some applications, motion detectors or door-open detectors are needed, while other applications require integration with more security products, such as a CCTV camera to guard the perimeter and verify intrusion alarms. The challenge for homeowners and businesses is to choose alarm detectors, cameras, and other components that can be easily integrated across different alarm product ranges.
Hikvision enables this with our Hik-ProConnect platform, which allows installers, homeowners, or businesses to seamlessly integrate CCTV cameras with no complex configuration requirements.
6. Can the alarm system send alerts to professional Alarm Receiving Centers?
For many homeowners and businesses, outsourcing alarm monitoring is an attractive option. However, this requires that alarm systems are fully compatible with the professional software platforms used at Alarm Receiving Centers (ARCs) and other similar facilities.
The Hikvision AX PRO alarm system meets this need based on seamless compatibility with ARCs and professional monitoring services via the Hik-ProConnect platform. This means that homeowners and business owners can entrust security alarm monitoring to trusted third parties and handle emergencies more efficiently.
