Captures Fast Scene Action without Blurring
From Samsung, Booth #14079
This expanded lineup of WiseNet III surveillance cameras features a wide range of features, including an ultra-fast frame rate (60 fps) and motion reduction technology to capture fast-moving scenes without blurring or loss of edge detail. The cameras can produce high-quality images even in low lighting conditions, and an enhanced dynamic range of 120dB ensures image clarity in mixed lighting environments. The line also features defog capability for improved images in inclement weather and digital image stabilization, which can negate the effects of camera shaking due to high winds or building vibration.

Provides Privacy, Emergency Egress in Dorms, Hospitals
From Dortronics Systems, Booth #1037
In dormitories or hospital room suites, there is often a shared bathroom between rooms. To improve privacy, this Communicating Bathroom System’s “privacy” push buttons will energize door locks, including maglocks, strikes and electrified locksets, for both doors in the bathroom and illuminate an “occupied” high-intensity LED indicator outside the bathroom. Both doors must be closed in order to activate the privacy locks, and opening either door using the mechanical lockset hardware will unlock both doors. The system also features an “emergency release” button which will unlock both doors immediately. For added safety, the system includes a fire alarm interface to redundantly unlock both doors for egress.

The sensor automatically alerts system administrators when values exceed user-defined levels via email or tunneled alarm relays.
