Security Camera - Marine Camera

Alarm System The super rugged stainless steel (AISI 316) ELM-700BL-IR is designed to resist the harshest environments. Salt-mist and chemicals can corrode ordinary cameras, but the ELM-700BL-IR is specifically designed to maintain its structural integrity and internal electronics under these aggressive and corrosive conditions. The camera features IR nighttime illumination to reveal the action under any lighting condition. With its waterproof and compact body, it is ready to capture high-resolution footage no matter what the environment. The ELM- 700BL-IR is perfect for marine applications like ships, yachts, marinas, or wherever there are caustic or corrosive elements.
Security Camera - Dat_ELID1

Security Camera The EL-ID1 is an advanced license plate camera that utilizes IR illuminators to capture license plates in all weather and lighting conditions. Installed at access points, the EL-ID1 captures plates of vehicles entering and exiting properties at speeds of up to 30mph within a distance of 20’. Built-in infrared illumination enables plate capture under any lighting conditions; while intelligent saturation technology eliminates motion blur and headlight/sunlight glare for a high-contrast image. Delivering perfect plate capture, the EL-ID1 allows the identification of front and rear license plates regardless of the weather or lighting conditions.

Security Camera - Dat_ICR300H3

Security Camera The ICR-300H3 was designed off the ICR-200's orbital chassis, but the ICR-300H3 takes performance to a new level with a larger size and more advanced features. With its new super high-resolution 1/3" Sony Super HAD 700TVL image sensor comes stronger IR LED’s: up to 100' of long-range nighttime viewing. The camera boasts a varifocal lens that can be set between 2.8-12mm for the perfect amount of flexibility. Beyond that, the camera chassis itself is fully weatherproof, making it suitable for installations in both indoor and outdoor environments. If you like the ICR-200, you will love the ICR-300H3.

Security Camera - AVS-D2110

Security Camera The award winning, ‘orbital’ dome camera design, now with better technology than ever. The AVSD2210 is the deceptively strong, high definition dome camera of tomorrow. This camera is a weatherproof, day/night, HD-AVS camera. It supports a more conventional dome design, in a compact housing. The smaller footprint of this camera can make it more desirable in applications where the performance of the camera needs to be as beautiful as it’s aesthetics. The camera chassis itself is IP 66 weatherproof, contains a 3.6mm lens, and a 1.3MP imager which outputs a sharp 720P video stream. This camera is well suited for locations that need a dome style camera, but the appearance of the camera needs to be minimal. HD-AVS cameras are only compatible with HD-AVS DVR systems, and cannot be used with standard definition recorders. By adopting this latest technology, previously existing analog CCTV systems can rapidly be upgraded to high definition by replacing both cameras and recorders with HD-AVS products!

Communications A telephone entry system creates a communication link between an external intercom zone such as a front door or entry gate to every telephone in the home or office. When a visitor arrives and presses the doorbell, a distinctive sound is sent to the phones to alert the occupant that someone is calling in from the intercom.

Telephone Entry systems are commonly used in multi-tenant buildings that hold offices, condos or apartments. A directory unit is placed at a door that can be used to contact building occupants. It may have a list of occupants and a code number that is dialed or may connect the visitor tot he tenant as a button by their name is pushed.
Telephone Entry System

Communications AE-2

As a telephone entry system, AE- 2 provides full duplex telephone communications through hands- free operation, and controls four openings via touch-tone telephone. It is supplied in a rugged, stainless steel, surface mount housing that will withstand years in the toughest environments.

Remarkable ease of operation is made possible by a highly visible keypad and large display, which presents visitors with a scrolling directory of up to 3,500 occupants (residents or employees) by name and code. When a code is entered on the keypad, a two-way voice link is established so the occupant can identify the visitor and grant access. Occupants gain entry using a special transmitter by keyless entry.
