Applications used with ELK's M1 Gold Control and Visualint products:
• Automatically turn porch lights on when someone is detected on the front porch in the hours of darkness
• If the alarm is set and the camera detects someone on the left side of the house a lighting scene can be started to gradually turn lights on through the house as if someone is home walking towards the area of detection
• Create an alert if the children leave an authorized area of if someone enters the area while the children are playing. Also keep an eye on the pool and receive an alert if someone gets to close.
• Send video notifications off site to alarm receiving centers where the operator can see what caused the alert, view the cameras live and communicate with the person on site

Visualint's VI-1100P internal motion detector camera is compatible with the ELK M1 Controls by connecting to the user friendly Visualint Line NVR and ELK's eKeypad iPhone app using the Cat 5 hardwired connection or Wi-Fi, with no need to run additional cabling.

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
