October 2014, Mayflex, the cabling infrastructure, networking and electronic security solutions distributor, has signed an agreement to distribute Digital Barriers’ intelligent video analytics application for reliable zone-based intrusion detection – SafeZone-edge. It is the first edge-based product to combine the performance of server-based intelligent video analysis (IVA) with the simplicity of video motion detection (VMD).
With UK Government certification (i-LIDS® scheme), SafeZone-edge is designed to protect secure facilities and reliably monitor remote sites, with exceptional detection accuracy and minimal false alarms. It is available now on a wide range of compatible Axis cameras and encoders.
In addition to performance, SafeZone-edge was designed with a relentless focus on ease of installation, affordability and scalability. An innovative auto-calibration feature dispenses with complex scene calibration tasks, allowing multiple cameras to be installed quickly and without fuss.
Intelligent processing ensures reliable operation, adapting automatically to seasonal and environmental conditions (variable illumination, shadows, weather) that can otherwise cause nuisance alarms. In a real-life operational test conducted over a week, replacement of a VMD solution with SafeZone-edge resulted in a nuisance alarm reduction of 10,000+ to just 1.
Mark Simmons, Sales Director of Mayflex commented, “As a business we are continually striving to bring products on board which complement existing brands and offer our customers an easier way of working and making money. The fact that Digital Barriers have a relationship with AXIS, whom we have distributed for a number of years, is a huge plus. This is yet another great brand that has been added to the ever growing Mayflex security product portfolio”.
Dan Meyrick, Sales & Business Development Lead for SafeZone-edge said, “Digital Barriers are delighted to have Mayflex as a Distribution partner. When bringing innovation to the market with products such as SafeZone-edge, it’s vital you have the right partners working with you. We certainly believe we have that in Mayflex and very much look forward to working with the Mayflex team”.
