Calipsa filters out over 85% of false alarms, forwarding only true alarms to human operators to review.

Connect to your existing cameras in 30 seconds with zero additional hardware. The platform provides instant access to your alarm dashboard, reporting, and camera management.

How it Works
Calipsa is completely cloud-based so it can be managed from anywhere in the world. Once set up, the process is simple.
1. Alarms are sent from camera to Calipsa cloud servers which filter out alarms caused by non­human or vehicle motion.
2. Calipsa forwards valid alerts to your alarm monitoring software for visual verification by an operator who reviews alarms for threats.
3. Calipsa’s deep learning algorithms learn and evolve with every camera reviewed, becoming more accurate every time.

Brand new from NEON, the 22” Monitor with TVI loop-through support. Not only can you connect a 2MP or 5MP TVI camera as a spot monitor, you can also take the feed back to the DVR for recording purposes. We also give you HDMI & VGA inputs. With the option to either mount on a wall or have it on a desktop, this really is a highly versatile, brilliant bit of technology

Hikvision AcuSense Technology


17th October 2019

Hikvision AcuSense Technology provides accurate sensing in security hardware. Empowered by deep learning algorithms, AcuSense technology distinguishes people and vehicles from other moving objects.

On detecting suspect activity an audible warning message will sound (which you can customise) and a flashing light will trigger. These will not only attract the offender, making them look directly at the camera but will also deter them from any further action. We can also send notifications upon activation. This clever box of tricks offers so much versatility while minimising costs and equipment. What will you use it for?

ANPR analytics allows to detect and recognise vehicle’s license plate and send ANPR info to a Smart NVR or VMS software for access management. You can search and view the matched captured vehicle plate picture and related information according to the plate searching conditions including the start time/end time, country and plate No.

The New DeepinView ANPR cameras adopt the latest and self-developed deep learning algorithm, with large quantity of samples input to ensure the accuracy of detection and classification. With integrated powerful GPU, it allows more efficient object detection and classification.

Nexus Wireless Alert

Lockdown & Fire Alert Solution

8th August 2019

NEXUS is a battery powered, wireless critical alert system. The units are fully portable, wire free, and can be rapidly deployed for fire alert and lockdown situations.
When one NEXUS Wireless Alert unit is activated, all units within range that are on the same site will also be activated.

The NEXUS system boasts a robust 1km line of sight transmission range between units and a long battery life of up to 3 years, with a maximum of 64 units operating on one site. Each unit acts as a repeater to form an advanced wireless mesh network, allowing for up to 16 mesh hops between units; this gives the NEXUS system a maximum range of up to 16km. Each site requires at least one master unit, which is fitted with a manual reset key. Resetting the master unit will reset the system post-activation, however, the initially triggered unit will continue to flash until it is manually reset. Complies with new EU legislation regarding audio & visual alerts.
