OPTEX introduced a 12-channel visual verification bridge (model CKB-312) to its intelligent visual verification solution. This gateway is a hardware device that allows security professionals to connect ONVIF-compatible cameras and alarm sensors to the cloud-based visual verification portal powered by CHeKT. Aimed primarily to monitored alarm systems, the solution provides central station operators the ability to visually verify alarm threats within seconds and respond accordingly. When installed and maintained properly, this system can eliminate 100 percent of false dispatches, the company reported. The solution allows the operator to share video alarm events with the site emergency contacts to validate or dismiss the alarm. The CKB-312 allows the integrator to pair up to 12 cameras with 12 sensors for visual verification of events. It simplifies the installation for larger sites using a single device to transmit 12 event-driven cameras’ feeds. Installing the CKB312 as an alarm panel module is a cost-effective way to add video to existing intruder systems using the legacy equipment, and it allows integrators to build new visual verified security systems. An app allows end users to have a professionally installed and self-monitored visual verification solution.
