Not only can you get caught on camera, the Avigilon Presence Detector can now ‘sense’ a person within a room. With up to 99% accuracy on detection this little gadget can detect a person as far as 9 metres from the sensor.

The Avigilon Presence Detector (APD) is a small form-factor impulse radar device, with self-learning radar analytics that scans, learns and continuously adapts to the environment. This enables it to provide extremely high accuracy in detecting the presence of a person at distances up to 9 metres (30 feet) from the sensor, even if the object is hidden or obstructed by objects such as blankets, cardboard, wood and stud walls. The APD is small and discreet and has a variety of mounting options, surface, corner and wall.

Using sophisticated radar analytics technology, the APD helps to solve the challenge of accurate human presence detection in indoor areas where traditional devices may be limited, it is ideal to be used in closed indoor reception areas, banks, pharmacies, healthcare facilities and retail stores. You don’t have to worry about locking anyone in public areas overnight, just use your APD as part of the last check of the night to ensure your building is empty. The APD also detects respiratory patterns of a person who has stopped moving or is hidden.

With its low profile and discreet design the APD easily blends into its surrounding. Available in surface and wall mount options, the APD uses standard IP security camera infrastructure and cabling for easy installation. It integrates with Avigilon Control Center video management software to provide operators accurate alarm notifications in order to take action, enhancing the user experience of the entire Avigilon solution.
