CheckVideo launches new high-definition outdoor bullet camera

Wednesday, October 24, 2012

RESTON,Va.—CheckVideo has expanded its product line with the CV135, a high-definition outdoor bullet camera that the company says is the first megapixel camera to package video analytics, DVR and video surveillance as a service (VSaaS) into a complete cloud-based intelligent video surveillance system.

The CV135 “watches” video 24/7 for events of interest and sends critical, real-time alerts that users can act on to notify authorities of an incident, helping to shorten response times and stop crimes in progress. Because the CV135 detects the presence of people and vehicles, not just motion, it dramatically reduces nuisance alarms, the company said. Video alerts can be sent via the cloud to a central monitoring service, email addresses, smartphones, or the secure CheckVideo Web portal.

“CV135 brings together CheckVideo’s proven, auto-adapting advanced video analytics that enable a proactive approach to video security and megapixel technology,” said John Estrada, CEO of CheckVideo, in a prepared statement. “The powerful combination of technologies within and supporting the camera allows us to further extend our security solutions to provide even stronger support in securing difficult applications like parking lots, utilities and other outdoor locations.”

The CV135 is a 2-megapixel, IP 66 weatherproof-rated IR camera with an all-in-one power cable that includes the option for power over the Ethernet.
