Netgenium announce integration of Netgenium IP PoE Speakers and Hikvision NVR

By | Home | No Comments

Netgenium are excited to partner with Hikvision, the world’s leading provider of innovative video surveillance products and solutions.

For more information see the Hikvision Integration section.

Our initial integration combines the range of Netgenium IP PoE speakers and Hikvision’s NVR and CCTV cameras. Audio files stored on the IP Speakers can be triggered from events sent across the IP Network from the NVR.

VMD from a camera can automatically command a single or group of IP speakers to play an announcement stored on the IP speaker itself.

Alternatively, a physical trigger from an NVR alarm input could also command a single or group of IP Speakers to play an announcement again stored on the IP speaker itself.

This solution could be used in many circumstances on a site including –

  • Automatically play security announcements if movement detected in secure areas
  • Automatically announce welcome messages when visitors arrive
  • Automatically announce special offers to customers in a retail environment
  • Activate a site wide lockdown message

Features of the integrated solution include –

  • Communication from the NVR to IP PoE Speakers via the IP network
  • Motion detection on CCTV cameras trigger IP Speaker pre-recorded announcements
  • Alarm input on NVR triggers IP PoE Speaker pre-recorded announcements
  • NVR can command single or multiple IP PoE Speakers to play announcements
  • NVR/Camera schedules can determine the times of day that announcements are played

Monitor Computer Systems

Netgenium are pleased to announce the integration between our range of IP PoE Speakers and Sentinel Alarm Monitoring software.

For more information see the Sentinel Integration section.

A Sentinel user can now select an IP Speaker from the speaker list or alternatively use the audio controls presented in the CCTV image to make announcements. And there is a choice – either make live announcements to an IP Speaker via a local microphone or command the IP Speaker to play a pre-recorded audio file stored on the IP speaker itself.

Installing a Netgenium IP PoE Audio Gateway product on the customer site will enhance the solution to provide the Sentinel user with the ability to make live announcements to groups of speakers.

Netgenium and Broxap team up to deploy the IP PoE Lighting at TFGM Cycle Hubs

By | News | No Comments

Netgenium have partnered with building specialist Broxap to deploy the first IP PoE LED lighting solution in the UK and probably the first in the world.

Transport For Greater Manchester are building Cycle Hubs throughout the Greater Manchester area to promote cycling as a method of commuting.

They identified a requirement for an energy efficient lighting solution for the hubs, with the ability to control the lights remotely from their CCTV security platform to enhance and aid security.

Each light is an IP device and powered from Power over Ethernet. With no mains infrastructure or containment to install the installation was more straight forward and less costly.

Each light fitting is configurable with a web browser and has sensor capability. Lux and motion sensors are used at the cycle hub. During daylight hours the lights are off. A subdued light level is maintained during from dusk to dawn when the cycle hub is unoccupied to save energy.

Access to the cycle hub is secured by Netgenium’s Access Control and PolicyServer. When a user is granted access the lighting is boosted to 100% and maintained at that level by local sensors whilst the hub is occupied.

Netgenium’s IP PoE emergency light fittings were also designed into the building infrastructure. As it’s powered by PoE, the emergency light has battery backup at the cabinet through UPS. Each emergency fitting also includes a local battery for added resilience.

The Lighting Revolution Is Here
