Our comprehensive solution enhances camera analytics with IoT sensor data
The Virrum system may contain multiple wireless network sites and user interfaces. Each of these sites can be made up of multiple devices: Virrum Access Points (VAPs) and Personal Devices (VPDs) which can be monitored through the Virrum Management Interface (VMI). The VAPs communicate with the gateway either directly or through other devices (multi-hop). When one device fails, other devices are used to restore communication in the affected part of the network. The server and the VMI can be deployed on a local computer or in the cloud.
Virrum’s core technology is a spatially distributed wireless network that can be quickly and cost-effectively deployed in all environments including “off the grid” where no electrical infrastructure exists. The wireless network enables the real-time management of sites, equipment, and environmental conditions dispersed over a geographic area providing real-time situational awareness. The enterprise system may contain multiple wireless network sites and user interfaces.
Each site can be composed of multiple modules, containing a set of stationary Virrum Access Point routers (VAPs) and gateways (VGWs) which potentially allows for unlimited site size coverage.
The system can have multiple wireless network sites and multiple security interfaces (VSIs). The server and the VSI can be deployed either on a local computer or on the cloud.
The system can be deployed in any environment, indoors or outdoors.
Virrum Access Points can communicate with the gateway, either directly or through other nodes (multi-hop). When one device fails, other devices are used to restore the communication path to the affected part of the network.
When activated the nodes automatically enroll on the network and the system use localization methods to determine their coordinates on the ground. This information is displayed on the graphical user interface which is used to display and edit the functionality of the devices (e.g. the attached sensors) through dialogue lists and menus.
Each device in the system can be set to report its status periodically. The status messages are used to update device records in the database which includes device identity, timestamp, voltage supply level (battery or grid), temperature, and sensor operation.
The devices are equipped with an accelerometer to monitor its position. When a change in position is detected, e.g. an intruder attempts to tamper with the device, an alarm message is generated and is immediately displayed on the GUI.
Personal devices (VPDs) can be used to identify people and assets in the management interface (VMI) as well as monitoring accountability and location tracking. VPDs are equipped with a variety of sensors enabling data collection and alarm generation such as duress, man down, and fall detection. The VPD devices can also be used to provide access to restricted zones, open doors, or activate machinery.
Access points (VAPs) can be equipped with intrusion sensors. When the intrusion sensor is triggered, the VAP device verifies the identity of intruder. If an authorized VPD device is detected in close proximity, the intrusion is discarded. If no authorized VPD devices are detected in close proximity, then an alarm message is generated and communicated to the server. This feature enables continuous intrusion detection even with authorized personnel on site.
The Virrum system can be deployed with no prior planning or configuration making it cost-effective and the ideal solution for temporary, changing, or mobile sites.
Virrum equipment is compatible with practically any hardware and can be layered on any existing radio frequency due to universal protocol.
