SALT LAKE CITY (August 1, 2012) -- Tomographic Motion Detection (TMD) is not a widely used term for security, but it will be soon. Xandem’s new synergistic sensing technology can detect through walls and obstructions and is immediately available in production-ready kits ranging from $695 to $1395 per system depending on kit size. The product can be purchased at www.xandem.com. Resellers are invited to contact the company for quantity discounts, specialized training, technology support and early access to future product releases.
Xandem’s TMD technology was created by Dr. Joey Wilson and Dr. Neal Patwari to sense through walls and obstructions. This new technology offers a way to detect movement in areas that are difficult to cover and can remain completely hidden from view heightening security and aesthetics. The kits can be easily integrated into standard panel equipment in new and existing alarm, automation, and energy efficiency systems.
The new Xandem TMD kits are complete with multiple nodes and a processing unit. The nodes create a powerful mesh network as they surround an area. Each node is not a sensor, the mesh network connecting the nodes is the sensor that detects movement within an area, even through walls and obstructions. As the nodes synergistically sense movement, the processing unit is the gateway to any standard panel.
TMD is not only affordable, but also advances security and automated lighting technology in many ways. Other technologies like infrared and optical detectors cannot sense through obstructions and can be bulky, unsightly and seen by intruders. In addition, they are vulnerable in dirty and cluttered environments and can be easily evaded. These limitations cause major problems especially in high risk environments including warehouses where equipment and inventory move frequently.
Xandem’s TMD is a viable solution for all of these limitations. The nodes and processing unit can be completely hidden and still detect movement. The area becomes more secure as intruders are not able to see the system, inventory can be moved as desired, and the system works through dirt and dust. False alarms are mitigated because the detection is not sensitive to temperature changes, light, smoke, and small animals.
TMD’s security and automated lighting advancements will be most immediately desired in dirty and cluttered warehouses where sensors are often blocked by constant relocation of equipment and inventory. Banks, vaults, museums, and high-security locations will also find direct advantages as the system is completely hidden from view and intruders cannot scope the site. In addition, high-end residential and office structures will find better security and lighting control with no unsightly detectors.
Xandem will be showing a live demonstration of TMD at the American Society for Industrial Security (ASIS) trade show in Philadelphia on September 10-13, 2012.
The company will be available at booth #1926 to provide further information. For more information please visit www.xandem.com. To schedule a private demonstration email firstname.lastname@example.org.
