Tempe, Arizona - Southwest Microwave has expanded Software Development Kit (SDK) options for its INTREPID™ Series II perimeter intrusion detection systems (PIDS) with the addition of the Remote Polling Module II (RPM II) SDK. The RPM II package, consisting of an IP-based application layer protocol and accompanying system control hardware module, provides simplified high-level interface between third-party physical security information management (PSIM) or surveillance systems and INTREPID™ detection technologies.


The RPM II SDK addresses the PIDS integration requirements of network-based large or multi-site facilities, enabling plug-and-play deployment, control and monitoring of the INTREPID™ MicroPoint™ II fence detection system, MicroTrack™ II buried cable detection system and MicroWave 330 digital microwave link through a user’s security management or surveillance platform.


“Southwest Microwave’s scalable SDK resources, and especially the new RPM II package, easily achieve the integration of our INTREPID™ intrusion detection technologies within an end-user’s preferred PSIM environment over local or wide area network”, explained Bob Kirkaldie, Southwest Microwave’s Director of Sales.


To simplify interface, only the RPM II system controller is queried by the facility’s control or monitoring application. The RPM II  serves as pollmaster, polling INTREPID™ sensors and auxiliary devices for status, and communicating this information to the head-end system via TCP/IP network connection.

“By eliminating the need for direct polling of each INTREPID™ device by the head-end system, our RPM II SDK reduces interface development time, cost and complexity, which is a win for both developer and end user,” outlined Kirkaldie. “And as new sites are added to a facility’s security program, it’s simply a matter of connecting these to an RPM II controller, which then handles the heavy lifting where the integration is concerned.”


The RPM II SDK enables extensive control and monitoring functionality for the INTREPID™ detection suite, including real-time notification of intrusion attempts, tamper and service alarms, tie-in of camera setting and position presets to detection zones, visual assessment of intrusion attempts or tampering, and storage of events in alarm history.


Device configuration and maintenance are conveniently achieved either locally or remotely via TCP/IP network with Southwest Microwave’s intuitive universal installation service tool, which features sensor auto-discovery, guided navigation and forward propagation for single step, multi-sensor zone configuration.


Since sensor set-up and alarm reporting are handled either locally or over the network, enterprise-level facility administrators, who often manage multiple or remote sites, can view or modify system parameters and monitor alarm activity from anywhere at any time.


“Just as we are committed to developing perimeter security solutions that integrate seamlessly with one another, we are similarly focused on ensuring that our technologies interface easily with our customers’ overall security management systems and networks. The RPM II SDK definitely achieves this goal. ”

FiberPatrol FP1100-X system

Product From Optellios, Inc

Newtown, PA – [January 13, 2014] – The FiberPatrol FP1100-X system features the most advanced fiber-optic sensor technology available for fence-line perimeter monitoring. The FP1100-X can pinpoint the location of an intrusion attempt to within one or two fence panels. Multiple simultaneous events, such as coordinated intrusions, can be effectively detected and located. The system reports the coordinates of an attempted breach, which can be used for activating corresponding PTZ camera presets and for personnel dispatch. The location-sensing ability also enables the system to ignore non-localized disturbances, such as those produced by wind and rain.
