Pinnacle Security, a provider of residential security solutions, announced it will market the Image Sensor, a motion-activated security sensor.
The motion-activated security sensors incorporate a built-in camera and transmit via a cellular connection. Beginning in May, this new device offers mobile accessibility to Pinnacle’s customers in the United States.
The security sensors are leveraging Alarm.com’s newest platform technology. Alarm.com (News - Alert) is a technology provider of interactive security solutions. The camera detects motion in the home and takes pictures, allowing the device to detect motion in a home and take photographs of what it sees when triggered.
“We’re pleased to be the first to offer the Image Sensor across the country, in partnership with Alarm.com,” said Kelly Walker, CEO, Pinnacle Security, in a statement.
“By continuing to innovate and provide best-in-class technology and features to complement our industry-leading customer service, we provide an affordable and advanced portfolio of home security solutions our customers can trust,” Walker added.
The sensor can be placed anywhere. The Image Sensor will detect motion. It can automatically upload an image of a potential intruder to the Pinnacle Mobile Control interface. These alarm-triggered images are forwarded to user's cell phones by text message or e-mail.
Thanks to the superior technology, company officials said, the Image Sensor captures pictures of the first in-property event after the security system is disarmed from Armed Away. This capability allows the property owner to see the person who disarmed their system on their devices or the Web.
“The Image Sensor is a simple, uncomplicated solution that provides another pair eyes within the home or business,” said Steve Trundle (News - Alert), president and CEO of Alarm.com. “By fusing the image processing engine into a completely wireless device that is smaller than a standard motion detector, we are able to provide a window that allows the user to maintain a persistent awareness of what is happening at their property.”
Pinnacle Security recently announced its systems facilitated the capture of a home intruder in Benton Harbor, Michigan. The Crash & Smash Protection-enabled alarm system notified Pinnacle Security's triple-redundant monitoring facility of a potential incident in the home of Pearl Lewis.
