Optex & Sloan Partner for Solar-Powered Solution
Optex Co. Ltd. announced that Sloan Security Technologies Inc. integrated Optex sensor/detector products into the GenLux® line of security poles. The platform uses a wrap-around solar laminate to provide reliable off-grid power to sensors and surveillance devices, Optex stated. The sensors/detectors increase the efficiency of the poles by triggering cameras based on detector activity.
“By partnering with industry leaders like Optex, we are able to provide an innovative, highly reliable security solution that combines sustainable technology with best-of-breed security,” said Brice Sloan, president of Sloan Security Technologies.
The GenLux security platform uses a hybrid solar platform of flexible thin-film and traditional solar panels, combined with storage batteries and smart controllers to provide 24/7 power to security and communication devices with up to 40W of continuous power. By eliminating the costs of trenching, conduit, and cabling, GenLux systems both speed and simplify deployment of a turnkey, integrated security solution. Since the security poles are built to mount sensor devices, Optex Redwall laser scanners and passive infrared sensors/detectors provide reliable detection with minimal false alarms, the company said.
“With Genlux, Sloan is demonstrating the future of sustainable security platforms using green, renewable energy,” said Mac Kokobo, president of Optex America. “And our sensors/detectors not only increase reliability but make the platform more energy-efficient through event-driven camera activation.”
