Onyx FirstVision combines alarm and video information for scene assessment

Notifier : 05 November, 2009  (New Product)
Notifier has introduced Onyx FirstVision which provides real time incident scene assessment capability through the use of live video, floor plans, alarm and other critical information
Onyx FirstVision combines alarm and video information for scene assessment
Notifier by Honeywell has enhanced its Onyx FirstVision interactive touch screen display to provide first responders more conclusive, real-time information on emergency events. A new 'campus view' feature can display critical information from multiple fire alarm systems throughout a facility, campus and across the globe. When integrated with Honeywell's Rapid Eye DVR (Digital Video Recording) system, Onyx FirstVision provides live video of various building areas.

Onyx FirstVision is an emergency scene assessment tool used by first responders to determine the origin and migration of a fire, location of emergency alerts, potential hazards or areas of refuge within the affected areas. Interactive floor-by-floor building layouts depicting activated fire alarm system components, water supplies, fire barriers, emergency shut-off valves and other site-specific details enable emergency officials to make fast, effective response plans. Ideal for large universities, industrial facilities and healthcare complexes, Onyx FirstVision is typically placed in a security office, local dispatch center or other centralized location for easy access.

Evolving beyond its original single-building monitoring capabilities, Onyx FirstVision can now survey multiple buildings and fire alarm networks. This technology ties into Notifier fire alarm systems over new or existing TCP/IP networks to provide a campus view of all system events.

The ability to view areas in and around a scene can be critical to making intelligent decisions in the midst of an emergency. To make this possible, today's version of Onyx FirstVision works alongside Honeywell's Rapid Eye DVR system to display real-time video feeds from any number of CCTV cameras. By simply tapping a camera icon on Onyx FirstVision's interactive display, users can view areas covered by those cameras to assess fire conditions, occupants, entry ways, exits and more.

The Onyx FirstVision system was developed by Notifier utilizing one-on-one feedback from firefighters, security personnel, EMTs (Emergency Medical Technician), facility owners and managers, and Notifier Distributors. At the request of these users, this latest version features new icons to indicate fire alarm pull stations, waterflow valves, hazardous material storage and areas of refuge. All interactive display areas are also designed to accommodate the heavy gloves typically worn by firefighters.
