Global Security Experts, Inc. Introduces the OnGARD Walk-About Wireless Surveillance Camera System – Designed to Help Thwart Recent Upswing in US Burglaries
Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) February 25, 2013
A recent article published by ABC7 News* proves that simple home surveillance technology can be the difference between whether or not a thief gets away with a crime. A man in Oakland, CA was caught on home surveillance cameras stealing a package left on the doorstep of a residence. The local police department believes they have a positive identification on the suspect thanks to cameras mounted outside the home.
Home and business owners are faced with the challenge of protecting themselves, their property, and those close to them on a daily basis. For many of these individuals, the costs associated with installing and maintaining effective surveillance systems are just too much to bear. Most surveillance solutions require professional installation that can easily turn messy when wires are run through walls, floors and attic space. With ever changing technology, wired surveillance systems can become obsolete and quickly leave the customer scratching their heads wondering why they bought the system in the first place.
Global Security Experts, Inc. introduces an alternative, the OnGARD Walk-About do it yourself surveillance system. The OnGARD Walk-About Wireless Surveillance System is a DIY portable surveillance system that allows homeowners to easily and conveniently keep an eye on their property without the professional setup or cost. The system consists of four indoor/outdoor wireless broadcast cameras (mounting hardware included) and one 7 LCD color monitor with built-in wireless video/audio receiver and DVR. The wireless cameras are easily installed indoors or outdoors requiring nothing but a power source. The LCD color monitor can be viewed in any room with an AC outlet and homeowners can view all four or any one of the cameras setup on their property. A parent is able to prepare dinner, fold laundry, or even sunbathe, while keeping a protective eye on their family and property. Our system provides affordability, convenience and state of the art security in a box, says Security Sensei Jordan Frankel. Users also have the ability to view video during the day and night with the built-in night vision aid. The range on the night vision recording feature is about 15 feet.
The OnGARD wireless surveillance system is equipped with a built-in digital video recorder (DVR) which records in a variety of modes including manual, schedule, and motion activated. The cameras built-in motion sensors provide home and business owners with the comfort of knowing that the built-in DVR is recording potential criminal activity. Users have the ability to view the audio and video real-time using the LCD monitor or via the built-in DVR. The OnGARD security system stores the audio and video on an optional SD card (up to 32GB) for those looking to record surveillance.
A common worry amongst home and business owners with some wireless surveillance systems is that the signal will be picked up by a third party, creating security vulnerabilities. The OnGARD Walk-About system has taken this into consideration and provides its users with total privacy through a secure signal. The type of digital wireless signal transmission is known as FHSS-Frequency Hopping Spread Spectrum. This type of signal is highly resistant to deliberate signal jamming, as it generates a channel hopping sequence using a sophisticated algorithm generated by the receiver system.
The OnGARD Walk-About can be purchased right now on the Global Security Experts website. It is the perfect fit for the home or business owner looking for a cost-effective, portable, DIY wireless security surveillance system that does not compromise quality or safety for affordability.

octoScope, Inc., a wireless solutions and services company, today announced a real-time logic implementation of its multiple input multiple output (MIMO) octoFade wireless testing solution. When applied to a wireless signal using digital signal processing, channel emulation makes the signal appear as though it has traversed a realistic indoor or outdoor space, having been reflected from walls, cars, people or other surfaces. With octoFade, channel emulation can be integrated into wireless test equipment such as vector signal generators (VSG) and base-station emulators. octoFade implements channel models defined by standards bodies such as IEEE 802.11 and 3GPP. These channel models emulate the effects of multipath and Doppler fading occurring in typical indoor and outdoor environments.
octoFade is the first computational subsystem of a MIMO wireless channel emulator being offered stand-alone for integration into test instruments or testbeds.
octoFade-3GPP is an RTL solution that implements standards-based 2G/3G/LTE channel models (802.11n/ac models to be added soon). octoFade-module is a PCIe based FPGA board running octoFade-3GPP RTL in a PC system. A powerful applications programming interface (API) lets engineers and integrators configure octoFade logic with 3GPP certification channel models. Engineers can also configure octoFade with custom channel models.
octoFade-3GPP RTL and octoFade-module hardware can be easily integrated with test equipment, such as base station emulators or VSGs, thereby enabling these instruments to also serve as channel emulators, saving end-users the cost of expensive (typically over $ 100k) stand-alone channel emulators. An excellent platform for channel emulation is the recently announced National Instruments Vector Signal Transceiver (VST), a VSG and a VSA (vector signal analyzer) in a single module. Incorporating state of the art RF front end and FPGA subsystems, the NI VST hardware and open LabVIEW architecture make a perfect home for a multitude of test functions, including channel emulation.
National Instruments welcomes developers such as octoScope to enable the NI Vector Signal Transceiver with wireless channel emulation functionality. The addition of octoScope’s software-based IP extends the use of National Instruments RF instruments to a multitude of important test functions, particularly in an automated quality assurance testbed, said Eric Starkloff, VP of Marketing at National Instruments.
octoFade-module is the only channel-emulation solution that provides baseband interfaces for integration into test equipment or for use in a variety of radio development environments and testbeds, said Fanny Mlinarsky, president of octoScope. Competing channel emulation solutions burden users with expensive RF hardware, when in many cases the required hardware already exists in testbeds, she added.
octoFade-3GPP RTL and octoFade-module are a continuation of octoScopes channel emulation solution, octoFade-WiFi. octoFade-WiFi is a software-based implementation of 802.11n/ac channel models offering source code or executable library for test waveform generation.
octoScope plans to integrate channel emulation functionality with its octoBox controlled RF environment testbed to create a powerful laboratory setup capable of emulating real-world conditions, including multipath, Doppler, motion of devices, noise and interference. The octoBox testbed is currently used by engineers to test radio range, throughput, roaming and mesh functionality.
More about octoFade
Wireless connectivity is being incorporated into a widening variety of consumer devices and industrial controls, including phones, pads, PCs, access points, base stations, military and public safety handsets, vehicles, smart meters, sensors and other such devices comprising the emerging Internet of Things (IoT). Modern radios operate in hostile environments subject to multipath, interference and dynamically changing conditions due to motion of the radios and reflectors.
To ensure adequate performance and to optimize range and throughput of wireless devices, engineers increasingly rely on channel emulation for radio testing. With the emergence of MIMO radio technology, channel emulation has become a mandatory part of radio test in R&D and quality assurance.
For customers requiring outdoor 3GPP channel emulation solutions, octoFade-3GPP RTL and octoFade-module implement real-time LTE, WCDMA and GSM channel models. For customers requiring indoor 802.11n/ac channel models, octoFade-WiFi is currently available as C source code or an executable library for Windows and Linux systems, offering channel modeling capabilities for test waveform creation.
octoScope offers wireless test solutions and services to companies building or deploying wireless communications devices and networks, including LTE, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. octoScopes test solutions include a family of octoBox small anechoic chambers and octoFade channel emulation logic.
