LonTrend is well-known as a camera housings provider, its positioning technology is undoubtedly another strong strength. With more than 30-year-experience, LonTrend ever supported a variety of projects with pan tilt units, and have reached to different fields, such as CCTV cameras, telecommunication, broadcasting and solar panel, etc. With a view to satisfying the requirement from the growing number of Pan Tilt Units’ users, LonTrend is going to launch state-of-the-art LTPM06 PTZ camera units in the upcoming brand new year.

PTZ cameras

PTZ cameras play a big role in wide and long range area surveillance projects. However, under some special conditions like factory, power plant, and battleground, the installation site requires more than two cameras with different features, such as a thermal camera, an optical camera and laser light to monitor the wide area.

In this case, LTPM06 pan tilt unit will be the first option which helps to upload two or three cameras together and upgrade the devices to a multi-sensor system.

Long range surveillance

Being a transmitter and a receiver, the antenna is an essential component of all radio equipment, and is widely used in many fields, such as radio broadcasting, mobile telephony, and wireless local area networks, etc. For better operating efficiency of radio wave, the antenna relies much on pan tilt units which help its installation on the tower or on the top of the building.

It is noteworthy that thanks to the efforts of the 3GPP, 5G NR SA Completion has passed in June 2018. It is forecasted that 5G will be widely used by 2020. The establishment of 5G base stations will become key constructions worldwide. Thus, the demand of positioning equipment will increase.

Solar Panel application

Solar energy is one of the examples that LonTrend LTPM06 has been frequently chosen for the project supports

Due to the limitation of energy resources, human being has turned to renewable energy in recent years. Solar energy is one of the examples that LonTrend LTPM06 has been frequently chosen for the project supports.

With the Dual-Axis and continuous or non-continuous rotation design, the deployment of pan tilt units give a hand to receive the solar beams more efficiently because the unit changes its position slowly all the time by following the direction of the sun.

Speaker application

Attending a concert or an animated event, audiences enjoy in the pleasant acoustic environment. As sound is a sort of wavelength, sound from different directions will make people feel different, which is sometimes a good thing but other times feels like bad acoustics. Thus the art of positioning speaker is an important topic to professionals. By using LonTrend pan tilt units, speakers mounted on the top can change the directions to fulfill everyone’s feeling in activities.

LTPM series support loading capacity up to 80 kg. With customizable pan and tilt range, speed, communication interface, rotate way, etc, the pan tilt unit aims to fulfill maximum special applications. The application of pan tilt units has unlimited opportunities and LonTrend is willing to support anyone who needs mobile solution in different domains.

What are the Security Challenges of Protecting the Cannabis Industry?

The advent of a truly new market for the physical security industry is a rare occurrence. Particularly rare is a new market that is both fast-growing and provides an environment that is not just conducive to application of physical security technologies but that actually demands it. Such is the case with the market for legalized marijuana. We asked this week’s Expert Panel Roundtable: What are the security challenges of protecting the cannabis industry?

Wireless Technology Is Transforming Motion Detection
Wireless Technology Is Transforming Motion Detection

Motion detection is a key feature of security systems in residential and commercial environments. Until recently, systems have relied heavily on closed circuit television (CCTV) and passive infrared (PIR) sensors, which both require significant investment and infrastructure to install and monitor. Developments in wireless technology are increasing home security possibilities. Few years ago, these developments led Cognitive Systems to discover that the wireless signals surrounding oneself can be used to detect motion. Known in the wireless industry as WiFi sensing, this technology brings many benefits that other motion detection solutions have not been able to provide. The working of WiFi sensing At Cognitive Systems, the company has used WiFi sensing technology to develop a motion detection solution called WiFi Motion™, which measures and interprets disruptions in RF signals transmitted between WiFi devices. When movement occurs in a space, ripples in the wireless signals are created. WiFi Motion interprets these ripples and determines if an action, such as sending a notification, is needed. Enabling this functionality in a space is incredibly simple. With a software upgrade to only one’s WiFi access point (or mesh router), motion sensing capabilities are layered into one’s WiFi network. Existing connected WiFi devices then become motion detectors without detracting from their original functions or slowing down the network. Using artificial intelligence (AI), WiFi Motion establishes a benchmark of the motionless environment and learns movement patterns over time, which could be used to predict trends. This allows unusual movement patterns to be detected with greater accuracy while decreasing the potential for costly false alerts. WiFi Motion requires no line-of-sight or installation WiFi sensing and other home monitoring solutions All of these capabilities are made possible by WiFi sensing and together create a motion detection system that provides unparalleled accuracy, coverage, privacy and affordability compared to other solutions on the market. PIR integration is far more complex and imposes electronic and physical design restrictions compared to WiFi sensing. In terms of placement, PIR systems are difficult to install, requiring line-of-sight and a device in every room for localization. WiFi Motion requires no line-of-sight or installation and is also a scalable solution compared to PIR. Much like cameras, PIRs can only cover so much space, but WiFi Motion can cover the entire home and even detect motion in the dark and through walls, without adding additional devices to the home. WiFi Motion detects less distinguishing context than cameras and microphones, but more context than regular PIR sensors for the perfect balance of privacy and highly accurate motion detection. Privacy solution While cameras have been the security solution for years, WiFi Motion offers a more affordable solution that can rival the privacy and coverage capabilities of even the most high-end cameras. With such a wide coverage area, one might think that WiFi sensing infringes on privacy, but actually, the opposite is true. With WiFi Motion, the contextual information collected cannot be used to identify a specific individual, unlike cameras which can clearly identify a person’s face or microphones, which can identify a person’s voice. It is different from other smart home security options that use cameras and microphones because it only senses motion using WiFi signals - it doesn’t “see” or “listen” like a camera or microphone would. This provides opportunities for added security in spaces where privacy might be a concern and installing a camera may not be a comfortable solution, such as bathrooms and bedrooms. The data collected is also anonymized and highly encrypted according to stringent industry privacy standards. Existing connected WiFi devices then become motion detectors Additional WiFi sensing applications Since WiFi sensing technology requires no additional hardware or subscription fees, it is much more affordable than other motion detection solutions. It can be used as a standalone solution, or it can be easily layered into more complex systems. This ease of integration, scalability and relatively low cost brings a lot of potential for various applications. Motion detection can trigger other smart devices in the network to turn lights on or off In eldercare, for example, WiFi sensing can be used to help seniors live comfortably in their homes for as long as possible. With the increasing aging population and high costs associated with care homes, the market for this application is considerable. Caregivers can use an app to monitor movement in their loved one’s home and be alerted about unusual movement patterns that could indicate a concern. For smart homes and other environments that have a network of smart devices, the artificial intelligence (AI) component of the technology allows for improvements to automated features. Motion detection can trigger other smart devices in the network to turn lights on or off or make adjustments to the temperature in a room. Security for the commercial sector For office buildings and other commercial properties, it is easy to see how all of these features could be scaled up to offer a highly accurate and cost-effective motion sensing and smart device automation solution. Cognitive Systems is closely involved with the development of WiFi sensing technology, working with various industry groups to establish standards and help it reach its full potential. WiFi Motion is merely the tip of the iceberg in terms of motion sensing possibilities, but its applications in the world of security are undeniably compelling. It is an exciting time for the wireless industry, as one works with stakeholders in the security space to explore everything this technology can do.
