End users and systems integrators can now take advantage of Power over Ethernet (PoE) connectivity in the Niō Guardian and Protector automated deterrence 4K HD camera solution by iDter. 

iDter’s Nio Guardian and Protector solution meets the latest PoE standards, including IEEE 802.3bt (PoE++) and IEEE 802.3at (PoE+) with 90-watt injector.  

PoE is a method for delivering power to devices over the same cabling network infrastructure used for data. With PoE, a single cable powers the iDter system, eliminating the need to run separate cables, yielding labor and infrastructure cost savings. iDter now offers two versions of the Niō Guardian; Niō-PoE and Niō-AC.  Niō AC accepts 120/240/277 VAC input for applications on commercial lighting poles or replacing building flood lights.

This recent innovation extends the possibility for applications and specifications, especially where installing additional infrastructure is impractical or impossible. 

“We’re excited to include PoE connectivity, making it easier to deploy iDter for intelligent and immediate active deterrence of crime. With Niō-PoE, the limits of protecting the perimeter proactively have disappeared,” said Greg Ayres, vice president of marketing and business development. 

iDter’s Niō Guardian and Protector technology features artificial intelligence (AI) deep learning and infrared night vision to detect in real time. Niō nodes are positioned around the protected premises to detect intrusion with a high-resolution camera with wide-angle lens, multiple motion detectors, omni-directional microphone and quad-core intelligence.  Niō nodes also deter with a rich set of immediate responses: the instantaneous illumination of 10,000 lumens of multi-directional LED floodlights, blinding strobes of red and blue LEDs, piercing sirens, situation-appropriate voice-down warning messages and intimidating sound effects.

Intrusion events are detected and immediately verified with video alert recordings sent to the user’s iPhone, Android phone or iPad. Events are monitored in real time to ensure deterrence actions were successful, and if not, a video verified alarm is sent to a UL Listed, Five-Diamond Certified central station for dispatch of authorities through 911 operators.
