New integrations

New integration with Ultinous adds more alarms from video analysis. SECURITHOR CAM+ speaks with all 3 products: U-Safe, U-Alarm and U-Filter.  The 3 products from Ultinous report alarms from Motion Detection and Video Analysis to SECURITHOR with image confirmations.

Our Monitoreal integration was enhanced with a magic button opening the Monitoreal Security Assistant directly from the alarm processing image view.

Camera health checks by Ai-RGUS service are now available to STC camera listener. Ai-RGUS service checks your cameras and NVR and reports failures to SECURITHOR.  Their service covers many aspects of camera health: image quality, framing, space left in memory, etc…

We are thrilled to have the new Dahua AirShield compatible with DT42 but also to have SECURITHOR CAM+ module showing the images transmitted from PIRcam. These images can be sent to Verficathor push verifications as well.

VETTI panels are now supported in DT42 which reports to SECURITHOR 2.50.

MCDI-AJAX Cooperation

MCDI developed an Ajax plugin for two-way integration for the SECURITHOR Alarm Response Software.

MCDI, combined Ajax Translator and Enterprise API to deliver a dedicated plugin that manages security and monitors Ajax systems‘ alarms, including visual verification of alarms, security mode switching and relay control. The Ajax plugin has permanent licenses and is free-of-charge for alarm receiving centres that use the SECURITHOR Alarm Response Software, version 2.31 and higher.

Beyond alarm monitoring

SECURITHOR presents a complete dashboard to operators handling alarm signals along with steps and contacts to process each event. The app automates several tasks like sending emails, SMS and reports to subscribers. With such features, SECURITHOR gained popularity among CMS/ARCs in APAC, Italy, North America, LATAM, and Ukraine.

An Ajax plugin

To make it easy for everyone to use Ukrainian products, MCDI made an effort to establish an even more convenient tool for Ajax integration with their software.

Securithor and DT42ip alarm receivers were already able to get alarm signals from Ajax security systems. And with a free AJAX plugin, the SECURITHOR operators can now view images transmitted by MotionCam detectors by simply clicking a button associated with the alarm event. Plus all operators of the SECURITHOR 2.50 Network Edition can control Ajax hubs remotely. Arming, Disarming, Night Mode and even relay activation are available directly in Securithor Alarm Processing tickets.

Contact MCDI to add this plugin to your SECURITHOR 2,50 license or to know how you can get it with your SECURITHOR update.


Free AJAX Plug in for SECURITHOR 2.31

We are making our part at MCDI to help Ukraine by giving (yes free!) the AJAX video plug-in in the latest SECURITHOR 2.31.
The goal is to make it easy for everyone to buy Ukrainian products. Namely the AJAX Jeweller Hub and its MotionCam detectors with integrated cameras.

SECURITHOR and our DT42 IP alarm receivers were already able to get alarm signals from AJAX.
With the AJAX Video plugin, the SECURITHOR operators can now view images transmitted by MotionCam by simply clicking a button associated with the alarm event.

Plus all operators of the SECURITHOR 2,31  Network Edition can control AJAX Hub remotely from their Alarm Processing tickets. Arming, Disarming, Home mode and even relay activation are available directly in SECURITHOR Alarm Processing tickets. No need to roll your chair to another screen.

Contact us to add this AJAX Plug-in to your SECURITHOR license or to know how you can get it with your SECURITHOR update.
