The securityProbe-X20 (SEC-X20) can handle up to 8 Sensors, 20 Dry Contact Inputs, and 4 Video Cameras.

The ultimate monitoring system solution! The securityProbe-X20 is a high speed, accurate, intelligent sensor and enhanced camera monitoring device, featuring a completely embedded host and Linux Operating System.  All the features of the securityProbe plus 20 dry contact inputs!  When a sensor event occurs, the advanced notification matrix allows you to send SNMP traps, email, SMS, MMS, make a SKYPE(tm) telephone call, and even sound an audio alert! The securityProbe-X20 also supports Modbus Master/Slave, Modbus RTU and Modbus over TCP/IP creating a unique, easy to configure Modbus to SNMP gateway. You can add up to 20 Modbus Sensors to the RS485 interface on the securityProbe-X20.

A wide variety of equipment and devices use dry contact outputs to send alarm signals to remote panels, remote monitoring systems, and building management systems. Communicating the status of these dry contact systems is important in a complex enterprise network, or automation industry to protect the mission critical installations of expensive equipment.

At the core of the securityProbe-X20 is the securityProbe, which is then married with the 20 dry contact system. This offers support for remote monitoring and management of various external devices. This integrated system enables connection and monitoring of devices like HVAC systems, Security Equipment, UPS, Generators, Industrial Equipment etc. The securityProbe-X20 embedded web server makes the addition of these devices easy.

The securityProbe-X20 comes with 8 full auto-sense sensors. An additional 20, 2-wire dry contact ports are provided giving a total of up to 28 dry contact ports. The specially designed 2-wire dry contact ports are easy to use and allow you to make your own dry contact cables quickly and easily.

Embedded Linux System:
The securityProbe-X20 is based on a 32-bit ARM processor. It includes 64 Megabytes of SDRAM and 128 Megabytes of nonvolatile flash memory, along with 10/100 Mbps Ethernet and two serial ports. With a real Linux kernel running on the system, the securityProbe-X20 is able to embed many applications, utilizing tools such as Apache web server (including encrypted https web pages), Bash, Perl, vi, Telnet, PHP, Email, and Nagios.

4 Camera Feature!
The securityProbe-X20 is capable of connecting up to four (4) external cameras.  Use one of our cameras or use one of your own. A wide range of analog cameras are supported, such as existing security cameras, sophisticated night vision cameras, or low cost CCTV cameras. The securityProbe-X20 can display pictures in several sizes, up to 640x480 pixels. It is capable of displaying pictures from 4 cameras simultaneously, or rotating between the 4 cameras.

Video Conferencing!
Video conferencing is activated by connecting an external camera to the securityProbe-X20. The speaker and microphone are plug into the  jacks pictured above.   Open H.323 protocol is used, with many different audio and video codecs supported (such as G.711-uLaw-64k, RFC2190 H.263-CIF, and H.261-CIF).

Sensor Graphing
The securityProbe-X20 integrates and displays graphs, plotted by the built-in RRD Tool.  These graphs are displayed on web-based user interface (utilizing the Apache web server).  Individual graphs (day, week, month, and year) for each sensor type can be customized, simply by modifying the script template used to generate a particular graph.

Intelligent Sensors
The securityProbe-X20 works with all of our plug-and-play intelligent sensors. Connect up to 8 of our auto-sense sensors in any combination to monitor Temperature, Temperature and Humidity, Water, Airflow, Security, AC Voltage, DC Voltage, Dry Contacts, Motion Detector, Smoke Detector, and more!

The securityProbe-X20 includes a single chip relative humidity and temperature multi sensor, with a calibrated digital output. This consists of a capacitive polymer sensing element, for relative humidity, and a bandgap temperature sensor. Both are seamlessly coupled to a 14bit analog to digital converter and a serial interface circuit on the same chip. This results in superior signal quality, a fast response time and insensitivity to external disturbances (EMC). By having both temperature & humidity sensors in a single sensor (which can extend up to 1,000 feet) the securityProbe-X20 can have up to 8 temperature & 8 humidity sensors. This extends the capability of the securityProbe-X20 to a maximum of 16 sensing parameters.

Sensor Notification Matrix
When an event occurs, the securityProbe-X20 can send SNMP traps, email, SMS, MMS, make a telephone call, and even trigger an audio alert.  The alert messages are customizable and can include a picture of the event. Besides notification alerts, event information including pictures are stored in a nonvolatile flash memory. The number of pictures to take is customizable for each camera, up to 2 pre-event, and 16 post-event pictures. The interval between each picture also can be customized. The timestamp is displayed below each image. The securityProbe-X20 has a battery backed time of day clock to facilitate accurate record keeping.   

This illustrates 4 pictures from each camera at the total of 16 pictures from all 4 cameras under one event

False Message Filter
In order to prevent false alarms, the securityProbe-X20 provides an extensive event filter. You can limit events based on the time of day or the day of the week. This is especially useful with the sensors such as the motion detector, when you may want to process an event only when the business is closed.
