Resideo Technologies, Inc. has officially launched a new video surveillance offering for residential and light commercial applications. The First Alert Visual Experience (VX) Series was debuted at Resideo’s CONNECT 2023 Customer Event and features two video solutions: the First Alert Outdoor Camera and the First Alert Video Doorbell (announced back in March 2023).
Starting in 1991, Resideo’s CONNECT Customer Event is an annual show that brings together security, HVAC and plumbing professionals for training, community service, new product and technology announcements, and to celebrate partner achievements.
Citing video’s rise as a leading driver of consumer engagement within the smart home, Pat Tessier, Senior Director of Product Marketing at Resideo said the VX Series allows professional security dealers to deliver “premium performance” to clients. The series come equipped with “AI-driven detection” that can supposedly help reduce nuisance alarms for customers.
It can also serve as a scalable video offering for pros, noted Tessier.
In addition to the AI-driven alert system, the First Alert Outdoor Camera also features high-resolution video recorded with a two-megapixel camera. The camera itself features a wide dynamic range alongside colored and infrared night visions.
The First Alert Outdoor Camera also features two-way interactive audio to greet visitors while also featuring intruder deterrence options that include a siren and a spotlight.
Ethernet and Wi-Fi networking provide installation flexibility and redundancy, as does Power over Ethernet (PoE) and 12-volt DC (direct current) power options. Additionally, Resideo notes the camera can withstand a variety of extreme weather conditions – including temperature (as low as -40 degrees and as high as 122 degrees Fahrenheit, humidity, dust, moisture, and ultraviolet rays.
“Our installers also really like the compact and modern design and back box that stows cables out of the way,” added Paul Romanelli, President of Suffolk Security Systems and First Alert Pro Resideo Premier Partner.
The First Alert Outdoor Camera integrates with Resideo’s ProSeries Security Platform for on-screen video streaming and has flexible, seven and 30-day video clip storage options.
The First Alert Video Doorbell and the First Alert Outdoor Camera are both available in North America through professional security dealers and on shelves at ADI Global Distribution, a Resideo company.
