Honeywell Reveals New Viewguard Mirror Optic Motion Sensors

Product Profile

Honeywell Viewguard mirror optic motion sensors combine reliability with excellent detection performance to create the next generation of motion sensor technology from Honeywell Security. This new innovative range is very suitable for installations in customer sites requiring a high level of security such as banks, jewellers, casinos and museums.

The Viewguard high-quality mirror optics delivers optimum signal strength, and maintains the highest detection levels for the maximum protection of business' assets and people. Viewguard infrared and microwave signal processing technology also significantly reduces false alarms and minimizes inconvenient interruptions for installers and end-users.

For security installers, Viewguard makes installation easy due to its plug-in concept and its abundance of wiring space. The combination of an attractive enclosure, extremely low current consumption and reduced false alarms, makes Viewguard particularly appealing to installers who are looking to gain value on installation time and potential service calls.   

"The Viewguard range of motion sensors has been designed to meet the needs of the highest risk applications. We've used the latest technology and focused on combining the key functions demanded by end-users, so that Viewguard delivers the highest levels of security while reducing inconvenient false alarms," said Farshid Ossareh, Product Marketing Leader, Honeywell Security. "With this solution we are offering end-users that extra level of protection to give them total peace of mind and saving installers precious time."

Further key Viewguard features include multi-level alarm thresholds and anti-masking technology which ensure highly reliable protection in even the most sensitive security environments. By employing multi-level alarm thresholds the sensor uses signal strength to quickly and accurately identify an intrusion, while limiting false alarms by only triggering when the detection signal is strong. The anti-mask function employs two active infrared circuits; one protecting the lens from spraying, taping and covering, while the other detects any blocking of the sensor at close range. If either circuit is interrupted, an alarm will immediately trigger and alert security to the location of the sensor.
