Hubbell Lighting partners with IP surveillance specialist Totus Solutions
Companies demonstrate LED fixture with "active deterrence" surveillance capability.
Hubbell Lighting has announced a strategic partnership to develop outdoor light fixtures enabled with IP surveillance technology from Totus Solutions, Inc. (Austin, TX). Under the new partnership, select Hubbell Lighting outdoor fixtures will be available with Totus Solutions’ surveillance technology.
Totus' outdoor lighting-based security platform integrates superior megapixel IP video surveillance, multi-day media storage, and secure wireless communications, transforming prior "passive surveillance" platforms into "active deterrence" systems "that can help prevent and deter crime instead of just recording it while it occurs," the company asserts.
“Our partnership with Totus Solutions adds an entirely new dynamic to Hubbell Lighting’s value proposition," comments Richard Abernethy, vice president of Hubbell Outdoor Lighting brands. "Not only can we assist our clients with their lighting, energy efficiency and building automation needs, but we will now offer video surveillance, two-way audio communications and advanced site analytics."
“We are excited to work with Hubbell Lighting and their engineering experts to enhance their outdoor fixtures with our advanced surveillance technology,” adds Gregory Williams, CEO of Totus Solutions.
The announcement of the new partnership was made at this week's Lightfair International 2014 conference in Las Vegas (June 1-5), where Hubbell Lighting will display Sterner Lighting’s Executive RT-21 LED fixture with Totos Solutions’ Active Deterrence surveillance system. The system utilizes a hemispheric 360-degree view camera with recording and real-time viewing along with 2-way audio for live listening and communication via an amplified speaker. Fixture-to-fixture data transfer takes place through a 900 MHz wireless auto-mesh network.
