Xtralis debuts ADPRO Presidium Mini intrusion detection system

(Hemel Hempstead, 3rd December 2008) Xtralis, a leading provider of intelligent fire detection and security solutions, today introduced the ADPRO Presidium Mini, a new version of its proven intelligent intrusion detection system, designed specifically to provide optimum detection performance at minimum false alarm rate in outdoor perimeter and area protection applications.

Incorporating more than 20 years of research & development, The Xtralis ADPRO Presidium Mini utilises flexible lighting compensation, multiple scene models, and practical object filters to give the highest likelihood of detecting intruders under a wide range of environmental conditions. Detection can be tailored for specific applications based on the perceived threat level, with performance not being compromised during periods of scene change such as those caused by cloud shadows or moving vegetation.

The Xtralis ADPRO Presidium Mini also features automatic scene learning and intelligent algorithms to dramatically reduce false alarm rates caused by small animals, trees and their shadows, car headlights and adverse weather conditions such as heavy wind or rain.

The system’s reliability and performance is complemented by its ease of installation and commissioning; an intuitive PC-based graphical user interface (GUI) has an intelligent pre-configured settings feature that enables quick set-up either on site or remotely over IP. Comprehensive facilities are also provided that enable easy integration with Xtralis ADPRO FastTrace (AFT) and FastTX as well as the PRO series range of PIR detectors to offer a complete remote site security solution. Easy integration with third-party CCTV control systems is also possible.

"The Xtralis ADPRO Presidium Mini can be flexibly configured for specific applications based on the level of perceived threat to a site," explains Hamish McKirdy, Director Sales Security EMEA. "Specifically it can work in combination with the PRO series of external PIR detectors, delivering a solid yet cost-effective solution for high-security applications."

From an installation perspective, the new ADPRO Presidium Mini has a small hardware footprint suitable for desktop installation or wall-mounting. A purpose-built hardware platform and dedicated, embedded software combines with real-time system monitoring to maintain uninterrupted and reliable operation. In addition, the new product is designed for low-voltage operation, suitable for mounting either where mains voltage is not available or not practical, and easily supported during mains failure.

To assist installers directly, ADPRO provides manuals, full documentation and information on the web as well as helping from the outset with system design, including site visits. The company also provides a commissioning service to help installers fine-tune the technology to meet the design specification.
