Products Intrusion Detection American Dynamics Tyco VideoEdge VMS

American Dynamics, part of the Security Products business unit of Tyco, introduces the latest version of its VideoEdge VMS which includes new features to help prevent crime and more effectively monitor active, high-traffic environments. Through analysis of the unique challenges facing security professionals in very active environments, American Dynamics identified critical features that are important to ensure the safety of patrons and employees, while securing company property.

In retail, for example, loss prevention professionals require reliable video analytics and integration with Point of Sale systems that provide real-time access to intelligence to help pinpoint suspicious transactions backed up by indisputable video. VideoEdge provides these results in seconds, allowing retailers to run exception reports and visualize the data to realize a sharp decrease in theft. In addition, no matter what specific challenges customers face, VideoEdge is easy to install with low maintenance for a better user experience.

VideoEdge also builds upon its unification with access control with a ‘Swipe and Show’ feature that provides an essential layer of security for places like large buildings with open turnstile architecture, oil refineries, water supply plants, nuclear plants, and other critical infrastructures requiring visual authentication of personnel.

“There are some applications where the demands placed on the video management system are core to daily operations,” said Shahar Ze’evi, Senior Product Manager for American Dynamics. “VideoEdge is built on a robust foundation that provides the most security-critical features like analytics and security unification while ensuring continuity with worry free video failover.”

Using the victor unified client, operators get access to live and recorded video quickly and can manage “investigator mode” while monitoring live events. victor is the only VMS client in the industry to have the UL 1076 certification, the standard for proprietary burglar alarm systems and a ‘must have’ for many security-critical customers with an operation center managing multiple unified video, burglar, and access control systems.


The VideoEdge VMS is available through American Dynamics’ worldwide distribution channel.
