Commend Australia are set to showcase a new model of acoustic duress alarm at the Security 2011 Exhibition in Sydney during August. The new tamper-proof, Help Point Column combines an acoustic alarm, regular call button and a built-in colour video camera that allows face-to-face communication with the security guard on duty.
“This is the first time an acoustic duress alarm has been fitted with a colour video camera supported intercom system,” says Guy Ross, Regional Manager at Commend Australia.
“With conventional help points it is often unclear if you’re speaking to a real person or listening to a pre-recorded message.
“With Commend Help Point Column’s video-based intercom system, users are assured that they are talking to a real person.”
Help Point Column’s acoustic duress alarms do away with the need to press a call button as it monitors noise levels and sets off an emergency call if any raised human voice is heard. A Hearing Impaired loop amplifier and special loop recording functionality lets the user listen to the alarm call up to 10 seconds before the alarm call is activated.
The Help Point Column is suitable for a number of applications in a variety of industries, including universities, hospitals, car parks and public transport.
The Help Point Column is protected against any form of physical violence, constructed with durable materials including stainless steel protect ensuring 99.998% reliability even under the harshest weather conditions.
“We are currently manufacturing our equipment in Austria, but we are also hunting for a High Quality manufacturer here in Australia,” said Guy.
