Home office approval for Honeywell video analytics

Honeywell Systems Group : 29 July, 2009  (New Product)
Honeywell has gained i-LIDS approval from the UK Home Office for Active Alert v4.7 video analytics for use as a primary detection system
Honeywell has announced that its new Active Alert v4.7 Video Analytics solution, has been evaluated by the UK Home Office Scientific Development Branch (HOSDB) and has been confirmed as an Imagery Library for Intelligent Detection Systems (i-LIDS) approved system both as a primary detection system for operational alert use and as an approved event based recording system for sterile zone monitoring applications. Active Alert v4.7 is therefore now approved for government use in applications for perimeter detection and protection across critical infrastructure facilities.

i-LIDS is the UK government's benchmark standard for Video Analytics technology and is awarded to security products evaluated against stringent criteria specified by HOSDB in the development of video based detection systems for government use. Of particular note is the achievement of 'primary detection system' classification, meaning Active Alert v4.7 has been certified for use as a standalone security system in sterile zones without the requirement of a secondary system to act as back-up, illustrating the quality and reliability of the product. The term 'sterile zone' refers to an area adjacent to the perimeter boundary of a site where the presence of an object could signify intent to attack the boundary. In these areas, Honeywell's Active Alert v4.7 provides a cost effective solution to traditional perimeter protection methods such as beams and fencing whilst also offering improved flexibility and functionality through its advanced analytics technology.

"To receive i-LIDS classification is an exceptional achievement for any security product," said Jeremy Kimber, EMEA channel marketing leader, Honeywell Systems Group. "The annual evaluation process conducted by HOSDB tests security products against a high standard and this classification is testament to the quality and capability of Active Alert v4.7."

Active Alert v4.7 is the latest version of Honeywell's popular Active Alert Video Analytics solution which can automatically detect, analyse, track and classify the behaviour of people, objects and vehicles as they move through a scene, alerting operators to anything suspicious and allowing them to respond faster.

In addition to i-LIDS accreditation, Active Alert v4.7 includes a number of new features such as language support for French, Spanish, Italian, Dutch and German, and compatibility with Honeywell's EQUIP® IP Camera range. It also features Alarm Management Server (AMS), a new solution which allows security operators to monitor multiple real-time alarms simultaneously from a central location by connecting field servers together through a single dedicated server. This is ideal for large organisations spread out over vast or multiple sites, government and corporate control rooms or central monitoring stations. "AMS has been developed in conjunction with a major central station, containing numerous channels of analytics to work across multiple critical infrastructure sites," says Carolyn Ramsay, global product director for Honeywell video analytics. "We know this meets the needs of this marketplace."
