XR Series Control Panel Now Supports Smart Video Analytics

SPRINGFIELD, MO — March 18, 2020 - DMP’s XR Series control panels have added an intelligent new layer of security and awareness, giving users the ability to selectively monitor their properties and capture video for specific activities. Now users can choose from a variety of specific camera analytic events they want to be made aware of, either by an email, text message or push notification to their Virtual Keypad™ app. These events can also be sent to a control station receiver from the control panel over network or cellular path.

These video analytics maximize the value invested in a video system by alerting users and their monitoring centers of potential security risks before or as they occur, such as detecting loitering in a parking lot or a perimeter breach after hours. A business owner might want to receive an alert, for instance, when a perimeter line is crossed, whether it’s a fence or an invisible line at the edge of an un-fenced campus environment. Analytics can detect a person or object crossing over that line in the camera’s view, triggering a notification.

What Does this Mean for You?
You’re able to make sure your customers receive the event analytics from these cameras. “Once the control panel becomes aware of the video analytics, many new opportunities present itself,” says Mark Hillenburg, vice president of Marketing for DMP. “For example, the video event could trigger other panel actions, such as locking a door or turning on a light. These new smart video analytics are a very important step forward as intrusion, access and video are elegantly blended to make smarter systems.”

Deliver These Video Analytic Events to a Monitoring Center
While the panel notifies users of the camera events, the monitoring center’s receiver also gets the event.

Notifications to the control center receiver include the analytic event definitions and also include the name of the camera that has detected activity. By delivering this type of meaningful information, it can be logged and acted upon outside of the video system.

New Integration Opportunities for Camera Manufacturers
Currently, the XR panel has this integrator connection and supports smart analytics with Open Eye® cameras. New opportunities are available to other video manufacturers who are interested.
