securityProbe 5ESVA-X20’s OnBoard Architecture

Up to 8 of AKCP’s Intelligent Sensors can be connected to the securityProbe 5E-X20. When plugged in, sensors automatically configure themselves and go ‘online’. Using the either the E-sensor8, or the E-opto16 expansion modules, up to 500 sensors can be connected to a single unit. Our easy-to-use port numbering system allows you to setup the securityProbe 5E-X20 within minutes.

PTDCConnect up to 4 External Cameras
The securityProbe 5E-X20 can display pictures from a
maximum of four Digital Cameras simultaneously
in several sizes, up to 640×480 pixels resolution.

AKCP cameras are used in professional surveillance
and CCTV monitoring systems. A built-in pan-tilt
controller interface allows complete control of pan
and tilt cameras using the industry standard Pelco D bus.


Sensor Graphing
The securityProbe 5E-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.


Notifications & False Message Filter


Up to 8 of AKCP’s Intelligent Sensors can be connected to the securityProbe 5E-X20. When plugged in, the sensor automatically configures itself and goes online. Using the either the E-sensor 8, or the E-opto 16 expansion modules, up to 500 sensors can be connected to a single unit. Our easy-to-use web based interface allows you to setup the securityProbe 5ESVA-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 5E-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.

The securityProbe 5E-X20 can automatically push out the complete status of the unit and sensors via the Heartbeat Message feature. This can be setup to be sent through e-mail, SMS or SNMP traps. A HTTP get script can also be chosen, allowing the data to be pushed to web servers.

False Message Filter

In order to prevent false alarms, the securityProbe 5E-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 many 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.
