Security Probe-X20 Download Brochure

The securityProbe-x20 is the next generation dry contact device with an advanced 20 dry contact inputs. It comes in a 1U rackmount box. The securityProbe-x20 has a Linux Operating System with 128 Megabytes of Flash memory and 64 Megabytes of SDRAM. It is TCP/IP compliant and runs lighttpd web server including https (SSL), Bash, Perl, vi, Telnet, PHP, Email and Nagios. The securityProbe-x20 has an easy-to-use web-based user interface for sensor configuration, data collection and extensive graphing. Complete SNMP functions such as SNMP v3 encryption are supported. The securityProbe-x20 also supports Modbus Master/Slave, Modbus RTU and Modbus over TCP/IP creating a unique, easy to configure Modbus to SNMP gateway. The web-based interface is written in PHP allowing end-user changes such as language translation. The securityProbe-x20 has a battery backed time of day clock for accurate record keeping.

At the core of the securityProbe-x20 is the securityProbe, which is then married with the 20 dry contact system. This offers support for remote monitoring and management of various external devices. This integrated system enables connection and monitoring of devices like HVAC systems, Security Equipment, UPS, Generators, Industrial Equipment etc. The securityProbe-x20 embedded web server makes the addition of these devices easy.The securityProbe-x20 comes with 8 full autoSense RJ-45 ports for connecting any of our intelligent sensors. An additional 20, 2 wire dry contact ports are provided giving a total of up to 28 dry contact ports. The specially designed 2 wire dry contact ports are easy to use and allow you to make your own dry contact cables quickly and easily

Connect up to 4 external analogue cameras

The securityProbe-x20 can display pictures from four cameras simultaneously in several sizes, up to 640x480 pixels resolution. Analogue cameras are the kind used in professional surveillance and CCTV monitoring systems. Built-in pan-tilt controller interface allows complete control of pan and tilt cameras using the industry standard Pelco-D bus.

Video Conferencing

Video conferencing is activated by connecting an external camera to the securityProbe-x20. The securityProbe-x20 has an integrated speaker and microphone for communication

Sensor Graphing

The securityProbe-x20 integrates and displays graphs of all sensor data in its web-based user interface. The individual graph (day, week, month and year) for each sensor type can be customized, simply by modifying the script template used to generate a particular graph. RRD tool is used to build an embedded database of sensor data. This data can be accessed from the web interface, or downloaded to a remote PC. MRTG can be used to generate real-time graphs of sensor data on a remote website

False Message Filter

In order to prevent false alarms, the securityProbe-x20 allows extensive filtering of events. You can limit events based on the time of day or the day of the week. You can also limit the number of alerts per hour, so that you are not swamped with messages. This is especially important with the sensor like the motion detector where you may want to process an event only when the business premises are closed.

Sensor Integration and Notification System

Up to 8 of AKCP’s intelligent sensors can be plugged into the RJ-45 ports of the securityProbe-x20. Once inserted, the sensor automatically configures itself and goes online. Our easy-to-use web based interface allows you to setup the securityProbe-x20 within minutes. When online, the sensors use their 4 levels of threshold checking and report any status change.

Notifications and alarms can be dependent on the states of multiple sensors, and can be configured to escalate in severity over time. The notification system can alert you of a problem via email, SMS messages and telephone calls, (additional hardware required), or send a message to any commercial network monitoring system using SNMP traps. The securityProbe-x20 can automatically switch a relay on or off, wake-up or shutdown a remote server, send pictures and data via FTP, send a FAX, run your custom script and many more versatile functions.

Email alerts can include a picture taken at the time of the event. All of the events are stored in the systems internal database; 23 pictures per event per camera can be recorded. Event details include the time and the sensor which triggered the event along with the sensor readings. The database can be easily reviewed using our built-in web based analysis system. All of the pictures are time stamped. The securityProbe-x20's system log can be integrated with third party tools for storage and examination.

Automatically shutdown your equipment in an emergency

AKCP’s Linux devices will automatically send a shutdown message to your Linux or Windows based servers – so if there is a power outage, for example, you can rest assured that your servers will be safely and automatically shut down before your UPS runs out.
