Chipkin Product Announcement - New Protocol Gateways Available for The XProtect CCTV System

Chipkin Automation Systems Inc. is proud to announce a much-anticipated product release. We have developed a custom driver for the XProtect CCTV system which allows a building control system to have control over relays, groups, and be able to drive selected cameras to presets automatically.

Vancouver, BC, Canada - February 21, 2018 - Chipkin has developed a custom driver for the Xprotect CCTV System. This allows any remote system to send event / command strings to the Xprotect system to drive the system to a particular state. For example, it can allow a building control system to drive a particular camera to a preset location and focus. The general purpose gateway for Xprotect was originally developed for a project where automation was controlled by a PLC system that uses Modbus TCP. Thus, the project allowed the PLC to drive selected cameras to have control over relays, groups, and be able to drive selected cameras to presets automatically. 

The XProtect protocol can be coupled with any of the other protocols in the FieldServer library to make gateway firmware. Here are a few examples of gateways we’ve already developed:
