The facts are indisputable. GJD's external detectors are proven to reduce unwanted and nuisance alarms. For more information about how we can assist your next security project, email email@example.com
A recent security upgrade from video analytics to GJD’s PIR detectors by Lucas CCTV, has proved to significantly reduce the end-customers unwanted alarms to negligible levels.
Lucas CCTV, a professional security installation company based in Northern Ireland, highly rates GJD’s external motion detectors.
The customer was frustrated with their existing video analytic based CCTV system due to the high number of unwanted alarms.
The customer was receiving more than 80 nuisance alarm notifications every single night. This was due to the camera’s built-in analytics, as it was constantly being triggered by spiders and poor-quality lighting, the
camera was then reporting this as movement alarm scenarios.
Nuisance/unwanted alarms are the bane of the security industry. They are generated when the site security is functioning correctly, but a non-threat is continuously triggering the system. For example, this may include car headlights, flickering lights, shadows, insect life such as spiders, or poorly illuminated areas. All of this is
made worse by foliage movement, wind, and other severe weather conditions.
GJD’s perimeter protection solutions provide your customers with accurate threat detection, while at the same time keeping unwanted alarms to a near zero rate.
The customer was frustrated with their existing video analytic based CCTV system due to the high number of unwanted alarms. The customer was receiving more than 80 nuisance alarm notifications every single
night. This was due to the camera’s built-in analytics, as it was constantly being triggered by spiders and poor-quality lighting, the camera was then reporting this as movement alarm scenarios.
Lucas CCTV took over this project, and adhered to two key objectives which were as follows:
- Reduce unwanted/nuisance alarms.
- Retain a high number of genuine alarm activations.
Lucas CCTV installed GJD’s external Elite PIR detectors. The Elite is a PIR motion detector that provides a wide-angle detection area from 10m to 35m. The Elite has 2 x volt free contacts on board, which enables it to smoothly integrate with CCTV and intruder systems, as well as GJD lighting systems, making it not only
reliable but also fantastic value for money.
For this particular project, the Elite detector integrated with the customer’s existing CCTV camera. It captured genuine intruder motion and then instantly triggered the CCTV camera presets.
With the addition of GJD’s Elite PIR detector, the customer who was previously getting more than 80 unwanted alarm notifications every single night, is now receiving just one activation overnight, this was the milkman at around 3am, which the customer was more than happy with.
GJD detectors have incredibly strong CCTV and intruder equipment integration capabilities. End-customers can receive real-time notifications of intruders on their smartphone, which allows them to see exactly what is
happening and gives them the ability to take relevant action.
Lee Thompson, Technical Director at Lucas CCTV Northern Ireland commented: “GJD’s detectors are great well-made external detection products. We always quote external detection at the start of each project and strategically place them to integrate with CCTV for maximised security coverage”.
Security starts at the perimeter
GJD’s external PIR detectors provide an effective first line of defence and enhance the quality that professional security installers deliver to their customers.
Early warning of intruders
GJD’s external PIR detectors alert your customers when an intruder is right at the boundary, rather
than when it is too late, and an intruder has already broken into the property.
Minimal unwanted alarms
GJD’s external detectors are designed to detect motion and heat. They use advanced signal processing and sophisticated algorithms, which are extremely reliable at reducing unwanted triggers.
