Feature Rich Outdoor Intrusion Detector Unveiled by RISCO Group

WatchOUT(TM) eXtreme Addresses Real World Scenarios With Advanced Detection Technologies.

Melville, NY (June 5, 2009) - RISCO Group, a leading provider of integrated security systems, has unveiled an enhanced version of its award-winning WatchOUT(TM) Reliable Outdoor Detector. First previewed at ISC West 2009, the WatchOUT(TM) eXtreme delivers a suite of unique detection technologies that bolster event recognition in addition to advanced features that optimize protection against vandalism. To further enrich its usability, WatchOUT eXtreme is available with an optional high definition video surveillance camera and in a wireless version.

"RISCO's innovative technologies and security solutions offer our customers a variety of high end tools designed for effective security operations," said Len Friedman, President and CEO of RISCO Group, USA. "WatchOUT eXtreme expands the role of traditional intruder detection systems by incorporating the latest advanced features to address real-world scenarios."

Designed for high performance reliability, WatchOUT eXtreme is the only outdoor detector to feature two microwave and two PIR detection channels. WatchOUT eXtreme's Sway Recognition(TM) Technology is utilized in breakthrough functionality by recognizing and excluding objects, such as swaying bushes and trees, that would trigger traditional intruder detection systems. Additional breakthrough functionality is achieved with Digital Correlation(TM) Technology which helps to eliminate false alarms caused from pets and rapid temperature changes.

WatchOUT eXtreme features Active IR Anti-Mask that detects any masking of the lens or other impediment to viewing, including a dirty lens, and should vandals attempt to sabotage or mask the detector, a Proximity Alert is issued, generated by on-board directional and proximity analysis. WatchOUT eXtreme also features Anti-Collision technology which allows multiple units to be installed face to face or back to back for maximum installation flexibility.

Remote control and diagnostics of the system have also been enhanced. Parameters such as detection sensitivity, microwave range, LEDs on/off, etc. can be set remotely when the system is installed on the bus of RISCO's ProSYS.Freecom(TM) Integrated Security System. Remote interrogation includes power voltage input level, PIR, and microwave signal and noise levels. Up to 128 WatchOUT(TM) detectors can be installed on the Bus of ProSYS.Freecom Version 7 and above, achieving significant cost savings on zone expanders, cabling and labor.

WatchOUT eXtreme features a wide angle coverage of 50 feet at 90 degrees, long range coverage of 75 feet at five degrees and barrier coverage of 50 feet at five degrees. It is also pet friendly up to a height of two feet, four inches. The unit is designed with a protective hood and features an IP65 environmental rating. A range of professional swivel brackets are available for barrier and pole installation and each WatchOUT is provided with a swivel bracket allowing an optimal match to the protected terrain.
