WatchOUT Reliable Outdoor Detection
Providing reliable intruder detection in outdoor environments is a huge challenge. WatchOUT uses Selective Event Recognition to distinguish between real intrusion events and the numerous false alarm causes inherent in the unstable outdoor environment.
WatchOUT's Selective Event Recognition is enabled by 4 detection channels:
- Sway Recognition Technology uses 2 Microwave channels for recognizing and excluding swaying objects such as bushes or tree limbs.
- Digital Correlation Technology uses 2 PIR channels with separate optics to ensure that only targets creating a similar and correlated signal in both PIR channels can trigger an alarm. Pets, rapid temperature changes, and reflections are ignored.
- 2 MW and 2 PIR channels
- Coverage 15m (50') 90deg. or 23m (75') 5deg.
- Mounting height 1.0m-2.7m (3'3" to 8'10")
- Pet immune up to 70cm (2'4") animal height
- Wide range of professional swivels
- Optional high quality camera
- Active IR for Anti-Mask and "Dirty Lens" alerts
- Unique Remote Control and Diagnostic capabilities
- MW "Anti-Collision" enables adjacent detector installations
- Protective hood and IP65 environment rating
Sway Recognition Technology
Sway Recognition Technology recognizes and excludes objects that sway but don't travel such as tree branches, bushes, swaying signs, etc. Sway Recognition Technology is enabled by two microwave channels that distinguish between the microwave pulses of approaching and receding targets, thus measuring the target's net distance. Objects that sway but don't move more than a set distance are cancelled out.
Anti-Mask and "Dirty Lens" Alerts
Anti-mask protection is achieved by 4 active IR channels that continuously monitor and warn of any lens masking attempts. The 4 active IR channels also provide a unique "dirty lens" alert via a separate output or via the ProSYS bus, indicating that lens cleaning is required.
Digital Correlation Technology
Digital Correlation Technology is based on comparing the signals of two independent PIR channels, with separate lenses that create a vertically interlacing detection pattern. Digital Correlation Technology ensures that only targets that cause similar and correlated signal patterns in both PIR channels are taken into account. This eliminates false alarms from pets, reflections, car head lights, and rapid temperature changes caused by wind or changing sun/shade patterns from cloud movement. Digital Correlation Technology is a major improvement over conventional detectors with two PIR channels, which may false alarm when unrelated events, with different signal patterns, occur simultaneously in each of the PIR channels.
Remote Diagnostic and Control
Up to 32 WatchOUT detectors can be installed on the bus of RISCO Group's ProSYS Integrated Security System with no need for physical zone expanders. This provides time-saving remote control of all detector settings and advanced remote diagnostic capabilities, via the ProSYS keypad or the Upload/Download software.
