Optex Announces 12 Channel Bridge That Simplifies Visual Verification

RANCHO DOMINGUEZ, Calif., Feb. 22, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- OPTEX, a global leader in sensing solutions, is expanding its Intelligent Visual Verification solution by introducing a 12 Channel Visual Verification Bridge (Model: CKB-312). This powerful gateway is the new hardware device that allows security professionals to connect ONVIF compatible cameras and alarm sensors to the Cloud based Visual Verification Portal powered by CHeKT.

The Optex Visual Verification Bridge gateway can help false security dispatches drop dramatically.

Aimed primarily to monitored alarm systems, the solution provides central station operators the ability to visually verify alarm threats within seconds, and respond accordingly.  When installed and maintained properly, this system can eliminate 100% of false dispatches and dramatically increase customer satisfaction and retention. The solution allows the operator to share video alarm event with the site emergency contacts to validate or dismiss the alarm.

The CKB-312 allows the integrator to pair up to twelve cameras with twelve sensors for visual verification of events. It simplifies the installation for larger sites using a single device to transmit twelve event driven cameras feeds.  Installing the CKB312 as an alarm panel module, is a cost-effective way to add video to existing intruder systems, using the legacy equipment and to build new visual verified security systems.

In addition, a smart-phone App is available, allowing end users the option to have a professionally installed and self-monitored visual verification solution.

 "The 12 channel Bridge perfectly complements the existing 4 channel Bridge and gives more options to the installer. Offering a cost-effective solution to add video to monitored alarm systems increases the benefits significantly to the end users. Integrators can confidently bring the security solution outside by adding external intrusion sensors to deter any break-ins," says Rob Blair, CEO of Optex Inc.
