From Springfield, DMP designs, engineers, manufactures and sells intrusion, fire, access control and cellular alarm solutions internationally. Launching in March 2023 to regional and national retail, and commercial and financial institutions, officials say the XV-24 with AlarmVision is a patent-pending technology that works with existing video monitoring systems to fine-tune motion-detecting capabilities. Connected to a security network, the product finds available cameras and allows users to set parameters to receive the benefits of a smart motion detector that triggers notifications, responses and alarms in real time.
SBJ: What separates DMP from its competitors?
Alee Rouhani (marketing director): The security industry is made up of several multiglobal billion-dollar companies that do security but also make thermostats, air conditioning units, industrial fans, etc., and are usually headquartered, and almost exclusively manufactured, outside the U.S. DMP, the technology, and manufacturing were founded here in Springfield, and have been here for 45 years.
SBJ: What need does the XV-24 with AlarmVision fill in the security industry?
Barrett Hillenburg (product manager): In the history of security camera footage, if there is any motion, it’s a prompt to have to take a look. Or people are recording 24/7, 365 days a year, and it’s impossible to sort through that amount of footage.
Rouhani: Even further, false alarms are a big problem, particularly if the authorities are called. Reports still indicate over 99% of alarms are false alarms – demonstrating the need for the XV-24, a more refined filter. There can be millions of dollars in fines, and in some areas, the authorities won’t even respond unless there’s a verified confirmation that someone is on-site. The XV-24 with AlarmVision combines 24/7 monitoring for only relevant activity via AI video analytics with real-time notifications, including video clips sent with the detected activity notice to monitoring stations and end users for immediate review and response.
SBJ: How does it work from a customer standpoint?
Rouhani: Once installed, the customer sets where, what and when the XV-24 with AlarmVision should monitor, as well as the security system’s response. Users can highlight one or more specific areas in a camera’s field of view to be monitored, such as only desiring to monitor for vehicles within a certain distance around a building on weekends or for people at a door or entryway after operating hours. The XV-24 with AlarmVision syncs with DMP’s app, which allows users to view live video and sends video clips along with a notification when a relevant activity is detected.
SBJ: What’s next for the XV-24?
Kyle Heironimus (vice president of advanced products): The XV-24 is just the beginning for the AlarmVision platform. We are seeing it change the landscape of what traditional intrusion looks like. In the old days, you had an alarm on the door, type a keypad and hope you do it right. Then, the fob came along. As we look to the future, the system can tell who is in the building and exactly where.
