What power options are available?
The Redcop tower is always powered by 24VDC batteries which can be recharged in a variety of ways, including directly from the mains, from a fitted solar power generation kit, or from a fitted hydrogen fuel cell kit. LiFePO4 battery sets are also available as an optional upgrade that can improve the efficiency and lifespan of the Redcop tower.
Does the RedCop have local recording?
Yes, the Redcop tower has a built-in Network Video Recorder (NVR) to ensure that all images are continually recorded and never lost. The NVR provides PoE power to the Knight-series static cameras and connects to the in-built router for transmission to the monitoring station against alarm events.
How are alarm events triggered?
The RedCop is integrated with Genesis PIR detectors to enable intruder detection and response. The RedCop can also utilise advanced AI from Redvision CCTV Knight-series static cameras to detect intruders.
Are RedCop CCTV towers available for rental?
Yes, RedCop CCTV towers are available for monthly rental. Rental is only available to trained installation and commissioning engineers and is subject to the RedCop terms and conditions.
What cameras can be fitted to Redcop CCTV tower?
The Redcop tower can accommodate one Redvision X-series PTZ camera and up to three Knight series static cameras. The PTZ is mounted on top of the 6.5m aircraft grade telescopic mast to provide wide-area coverage of the site. The static cameras with built in analytics are typically used to look at specific assets, entry/exit points and other vulnerable areas.
Is there a road trailer available?
Yes, the Redcop tower can be factory mounted onto the Redcop road trailer, which is VCA type-approved for use in Great Britain and Northern Ireland. This allows for rapid re-deployment of the tower to remote and vulnerable sites.
How is the Redcop CCTV tower remotely monitored?
The Redcop CCTV tower can be monitored using the free of charge Redvision RedVu CMS Central Monitoring software. The CMS software can be downloaded to a PC or laptop and installed on a smart phone or tablet for mobile viewing. Additionally, the Redcop can be monitored by a commercial Alarm Receiving Centre (ARC) running Immix or Sentinel software. The ARC may also be able to offer additional services such as patrols or keyholding as required.
