RISCO Group introduces updated Agility 4 wireless security system for end users

RISCO Group has released Agility 4, a wireless, modular and multi-layered security system which includes a new range of accessories available immediately with more add-ons expected to follow. With an enhanced choice of communication modules ranging from IP to 3G, the new solution is designed to provide an adaptable system for any type of installation and monitoring. Multi-socket communication modules are designed to enable parallel reporting to the cloud and monitoring stations with multiple IP addresses using one communication module.

Detecting intruders outside before they attempt to enter a property was a key challenge as the risk of false alarms has historically been an issue in new security systems. This was a significant design consideration in respect of the configuration of the new Agility 4 system with the inclusion of the new Beyond Wireless DT outdoor detector.

Beyond Wireless leverages cutting-edge outdoor detection technologies and algorithms based on four detection channels. It’s widely regarded as one of the most secure wireless outdoor detectors in the industry. The multi-layered protection includes cover tamper, ‘Active IR Anti-Mask’ and an accelerometer-based shock sensor. If force is applied to the detector, the shock sensor generates a tamper alert to the panel.

RISCO Group has now developed both indoor and outdoor camera detectors for alarm verification with new features including Agility 4’s ability to receive a short clip of the event alongside a series of snapshots through an integrated camera. Upon detection, the camera is triggered automatically with snapshots and video clips available to the end user and the monitoring station simultaneously, all of which can be enabled by an installer using RISCO Cloud.

The complimentary range of new accessories includes a contemporary keypad, a compact key fob and the BWare detector now available as wireless.

A Beyond Wireless DT detector camera will also be released in the forthcoming months along with a discreet PIR detector and contemporary indoor sounder.

Commenting on the launch, Ian Stones (head of sales for RISCO UK) told Risk Xtra: “For a long time, RISCO has led the way for cloud-based wireless intruder system technology. Agility 4 moves this on a step further with significantly enhanced technology and improved aesthetics now demanded by today’s end user customers.”
