Tomographic Motion Detection (TMD) Technology Critical for Securing
High Value Assets, Dirty Environments and Aesthetically Sensitive Areas
LAS VEGAS (April 10, 2013) -- Today at the International Security Conference and Exposition in Las Vegas (ISC West), Xandem released the security industry’s most advanced install-ready technology for full coverage protection. Until now the company’s Tomographic Motion Detection (TMD) has gained wide acclaim for its innovation but has not been widely available for installation. Immediately available is the Xandem TMD Demo Kit complete with Nexus 7 visualization tablet that simplifies sales, installation and exploration of the new technology for $1495. Once a demo kit is purchased resellers are offered wholesale pricing structures based on reseller activity. Those interested in purchasing a TMD Demo Kit can contact us or purchase it online here.
Xandem’s Tomographic Motion Detection offers unbeatable full coverage security that detects movement through walls and solves industry-wide gaps in dirty and cluttered environments, high value asset protection and aesthetically sensitive areas. The technology was created by Dr. Joey Wilson and Dr. Neal Patwari at the University of Utah and offers a totally new way to detect movement through radio wave synergistic sensing. TMD is easily integrated into standard panel equipment for new and existing alarm, automation, and energy efficiency systems.
“Since the inception of the technology we have heard from leaders in the security industry who have been anxious to implement TMD for their customers who need full coverage protection,” said Xandem founder and CEO Dr. Joey Wilson. “These companies and many others are finding the new TMD Demo Kit to offer the solution for immediate installation in dirty environments, high value asset protection and places where security hardware must be hidden to overcome inside knowledge or simply for aesthetics.”
Resellers and security installation companies will find Xandem’s TMD Demo Kit to bridge the gap between concept and reality for their customers. As a sales tool the kit allows professionals to powerfully and quickly demonstrate Tomographic Motion Detection to potential customers onsite. Once the customer is ready for installation the kit offers installers instant feedback to ensure problems are corrected before permanent installation. And finally, the kit offers experimentation tools to test particular setups to ensure that the technology offers a permanent solution to a particular application.
TMD technology uses wireless networks that penetrate through solid materials making the system successful even when the devices are placed behind walls, furniture, and other obstructions. It is unlike traditional microwave sensors in that the sensing does not depend on radio wave reflections. The tomographic sensing comes from communicating nodes in a mesh network that sense disruption to the waves as they pass through a defined area.
“The hidden and detect-through-walls aspects of this technology make TMD the right solution for many hard to secure areas,” says Wilson. “In security systems, an intruder cannot scope vulnerabilities at a target site since the devices are inside walls or other enclosures. In addition, those with inside knowledge cannot beat the system because of the multiple-node sensing is foolproof. Furthermore, since the system penetrates solid objects, the entire floor plan or area can be covered without gaps. In building automation and energy efficiency applications, Xandem’s system is much more aesthetically pleasing than traditional motion sensors.
Wilson also believes the technology can be used in non-traditional ways. “The uses of this technology are endless. Since our system can quantify motion, our systems can detect the difference between a single intruder and a crowd of people. When parents leave their kids at home, they can be notified if a party is occurring. This is just one example of how Xandem is enabling powerful new applications.”
