Miami, Florida-based FutureSentry, a developer of detection solutions for perimeter security, announced the availability of the FutureSentry Carousel. The company says the carousel sensor is designed to ease installation of the company’s flagship solution, the FutureSentry First Responder, and allow the system’s use in interior applications.

The FutureSentry Carousel aims to reduce deployment time, and its close-range detection capabilities allow for it to be deployed in internal environments, such as warehouses or covered loading docks, for the first time. A 360 degrees of coverage is achieved through eight, adjustable, articulating sensor heads.

The new accessory provides a 125-foot detection radius, and the company notes that its hardwired design responds quickly to threats within its eight zones. The carousel features a single connector for its entire sensor group, thus eliminating the need for additional programming of individual sensors.

A 4-headed version is also available for wall mount applications.

“The FutureSentry Carousel opens doors for the First Responder and closes doors for potential criminals,” said Rolland Trayte, president and CEO, FutureSentry. “As the only surveillance solution designed to prevent crime rather than simply record it, the First Responder has been a popular choice for outdoor perimeter applications. The addition of the carousel sensor allows users to install the best solution for crime prevention within interior environments with increased range and reliability.”
