The HawkEye Effect solution integrates sensor technology with XProtect® software using geo-spatial positioning to provide timely, automatic, pre-programmed responses to critical incidents. The integration enables external sensors or detection systems to trigger events in the XProtect system and to control and position attached pan-tilt-zoom (PTZ) cameras. Camera video is viewed live in XProtect® Smart Client and through automated bookmarks (in XProtect® Corporate only), alarms or emails.

The HawkEye Effect’s commercial event detection sensors include acoustic, biological, chemical, closure, explosion, gunshot, laser scanner, license plate detection (LPR), motion, radar, radiological, radio frequency identification (RFID), temperature, vibration, video analytics and weather sensors.

Key Features

  • PTZ commands: Based on detected event’s GPS location and on the preset positions associated with that location, the HawkEye Effect system can remotely control PTZ cameras in XProtect, moving the cameras in the direction of a specific detected event, such as a gunshot

  • Event Linking: The HawkEye Effect system can trigger events in XProtect based on the detection of third-party events and XProtect’s built-in rules engine can then automate a wide range of responses
