Hubbell Lighting has introduced SpectraSAFE, the first scalable, cloud-based and wireless video security solution designed for commercial and industrial building applications that seamlessly integrates into a wide range of luminaires.
SpectraSAFE-enabled luminaires feature a compact, high-resolution Full HD camera (2.8mm, 144-degree FOV), an integrated infrared light source for low or no light conditions and an integrated microphone and speaker enabling two-way audio communication between security staff and building occupants. The solution was recently selected for inclusion in the 2020 Illuminating Engineering Society (“IES”) Progress Report, a leading industry showcase for the most innovative developments in the art and science of lighting.
The integrated SpectraSAFE camera module is Wi-Fi enabled and capable of wirelessly transmitting continuous or event-based video with audio to Hubbell’s secure “Camera Center” application. The Hubbell Camera Center is a feature-rich, multiplatform, cloud-based service designed to provide building owners and occupants with premium capabilities through a scalable subscription-based service model.
The Camera. SpectraSAFE was designed to be an intelligent and elegant surveillance and security option for commercial and industrial environments that would typically utilize standalone, bulky and unattractive camera systems. The compact SpectraSAFE camera module seamlessly integrates into a wide range of Hubbell Lighting’s most popular recessed and surface-mounted linear luminaries. Additionally, Hubbell has plans to make the SpectraSAFE camera module available in non-Hubbell products through OEM and integrator partner programs in the future.
The Application. SpectraSAFE is the first luminaire-based video security solution to offer secure, sharable, and configurable user access to support multi-site and multi-tenant applications. It is supported by the feature-rich and multi-platform application Hubbell Camera Center, compatible with Android and iOS devices, and is also accessible through a web-based user portal. The application, powered by meShare, allows users to select between three cloud-based service plans which offer a range of basic and advanced capabilities to fit all needs. The app also allows users to integrate cameras from multiple locations/buildings and across multiple partner device types (such as Zmodo), into a single user interface.
The SpectraSAFE cloud service is hosted on U.S.-based servers, where data is protected using bank-level AES-256 encryption and all transmissions from cameras are protected utilizing transport layer security.
