Uniden shines a spotlight on its new surveillance systems 2016-10-10T01:41:48Z uniden-shines-a-spotlight-on-its-new-surveillance-systems A leader in communication solutions, Uniden has refreshed its popular Guardian digital wireless surveillance system range with the introduction of the G37xx series. The new DIY security systems offer homeowners greater flexibility and a host of practical, advanced features. The new models - the G3720 and G3710 - each include a seven-inch touchscreen tablet and weatherproof cameras (two and one, respectively). The range can be expanded to include up to four weatherproof cameras, making it suitable for growing families. In addition, the ability to install cameras where cables cannot reach means users can change the camera configuration quickly and easily as required and is a practical inclusion for roving households. Suitable for monitoring the interiors and exteriors of residential properties, the G37xx series cameras communicate wirelessly via the touchscreen tablet. This can also connect to the internet for remote access from a smartphone. The touchscreen tablet has Full High Definition (HD) 1080p resolution for spectacularly clear picture quality, allowing homeowners to clearly see details such as registration plates and facial features which are critical in the event of an incident. Unique to the market is the introduction of an optional motion detection spotlight with a weatherproof outdoor camera. Enhancing night vision further, this deters unwelcome visitors by casting a bright light when movement is detected. Advanced features include an infrared LED with infrared cut filter for true representation of daytime colour, Full HD picture quality and PentaZoom 2x digital zoom-in on live videos. Remote access via an iOS/Android app means homeowners can logon from anywhere in the world to watch and record footage live as well as switch the optional spotlight on to deter intruders. The app also sends push notifications and email alerts whenever the system detects movement. Secure, digital and interference-free transmission offers peace of mind while a two-way talk function offers interactive opportunities. The Guardian wireless surveillance series offers a plug-and-play set-up and can be ready to use within minutes.

Launching in two kit combinations, Deluxe and Starter, both systems work straight out of the box and can be setup in a matter of minutes.   The Smart Home Control series includes magnetic sensors for doors and windows, and indoor sirens, compatible with Uniden’s existing range of AppCam indoor and weatherproof outdoor cameras. Passive infrared (PIR) motion sensors are a practical inclusion, detecting movement in ‘blind spot’ areas not covered by cameras like a driveway or backdoor.   A gateway hub acts as the control room which sends and receives signals from the sensors, sirens and cameras. At the touch of a button, the key remote control can arm and disarm the home, and begin filming on cameras connected to the system. The future-proof system can also be expanded with additional sensors, cameras and sirens[i], making it the perfect DIY surveillance solution for virtually any home.   Uniden’s Guardian Home app for iOS and Android smartphones and tablets - used in conjunction with the Smart Home Control range - provides users with greater flexibility and control. The app enables homeowners to logon remotely to view footage in real-time, manoeuvre camera movements and even set off sirens to deter intruders. When sensors or sirens are triggered, users are notified via alerts sent to the Guardian Home app and their assigned e-mail address. Users can set-up multiple scenarios via the Guardian Home app to suit their preferences. For instance, create automated settings to begin recording on cameras and set off sirens when unauthorised entry is detected from the magnetic sensors or PIR sensors.   Developed especially for the Smart Home Control series long range is a benefit which is achieved by a hybrid transmission[ii] ensuring activity does not go unseen or unheard.  Pricing and availabilityUniden Smart Home Control: Deluxe Kit (GSHC5000) 1 x gateway hub 5 x magnetic sensors for doors/windows 2 x passive infrared (PIR) motion sensors 2 x remote controls 1 x indoor siren 2 x App Cam 26 HD pan and tilt indoor cameras Available September, RRP $699.95  Uniden Smart Home Control: Starter Kit (GSHC1000) 1 x gateway hub 3 x magnetic sensors for doors/windows 2 x remote controls 1 x App Cam 24 HD indoor camera Available September, RRP $399.95   The new Uniden Smart Home Control series is available from leading electrical retail stores nationally.   For customer enquiries: phone Uniden 1300 366 895 or see www.uniden.com.au   [i] More accessories scheduled for release in 2015.

Top tips for encouraging safe and positive behaviour on the roads 2015-06-16T00:09:00Z top-tips-for-encouraging-safe-and-positive-behaviour-on-the-roads While speeding remains the biggest contributor to fatal road accidents in Australia, behavioural changes can make a positive impact in helping to reduce a range of road-related incidents. Wet weather, snowy conditions and unfamiliar roads can lead to an increase in vehicle collisions.   As the leading brand in in-car dash cams in Australia[i], Uniden provides advice to encourage safer driving in all weather conditions.   Remain observant of the local surroundings as well as other road users. Be mindful of pedestrians and children in school zones, changed conditions and speed limits when travelling past construction and road works and wildlife in regional areas, particularly at sunset when many animals are on the move. It’s reported that animal collisions increase by 30 per cent in the winter months, with a peak danger period between June and August[ii]. Stick to the local speed limit in dry weather conditions. When wet weather strikes, always slow down, keep a greater distance between the vehicle ahead and be extremely vigilant on the roads. Australian drivers have a track record for severe and high rates of road rage[iii]. It’s a good idea to practice basic road etiquette with minor gestures like giving way to other motorists, and waving in the rear view mirror as a way of ‘thanks’. It helps to reduce hostility on the road, and it’s a positive habit that encourages others to do the same. Be mindful of your motor vehicle’s capabilities, particularly in locations prone to flooding, high levels of wind or snow. Use treads when required and avoid driving altogether if it’s advised to do so by the local authorities. Avoid driving when fatigued. It has been suggested that a person who has been awake for 17 hours has the cognitive ability similar to a driver with a blood alcohol concentration of 0.05. Invest in a quality accident cam vehicle recorder that’s reliable and easy to use. New models are easy to install yourself, can be used to capture on-road or carpark incidents, and offer fatigued drivers audible and visual alerts when the vehicle is drifting over a lane while in motion.   Uniden has a wide range of iGO Cams designed for recreational road users, as well as professional drivers and other motorists wanting to protect themselves from road-related accidents and disputes.   The Uniden iGO Cam vehicle recorders are available from leading consumer electronics retailers.   Customer enquiries: phone Uniden 1300 366 895 or visit www.uniden.com.au   [i] Based on sales units measured over six months in 2014-15 through a third-party market data collection company in Australia.

The UH8050S UHF CB mobile radio is ideal for a variety of road users looking for an advanced DIN*  in-car mount UHF solution, including truck, 4WD and recreational drivers. The latest innovation added to the Uniden UHF range, Master Scan™ technology, is designed to ensure minimal disruptions for continuous communication. This premium feature also has Dynamic Switching, which lets users retain constant communication by changing over to unused channels. This network scan function searches for other radios that share the same CTCSS or DCS tone. When the radio detects a signal with no code or an incorrect code, it switches to an unused channel when transmitting. By scanning only group channels, radios in the network will be able to detect and receive group transmissions, offering continuous communication without interruption. Using pre-batched group channels also helps to avoid complicated settings by preloading group channels. The Lightning Encode feature is an advanced rectifier circuit, enabling the radio to decode CTCSS/DCS quickly.  “As a leader in UHF communication, Uniden continues to engineer quality products offering advanced features that are both practical and intuitive for users. The UH8050S UHF CB mobile radio is designed to satisfy the needs of drivers looking for a highly-featured DIN in-car mount UHF solution. With the inclusion of Master Scan™ technology, we anticipate the UH8050S will be a popular and reliable choice for staying in touch with the outside world while on the road,” said Brad Hales, National Marketing Communication Manager, Uniden Australia. Using Uniden's world recognised BearCat scanning technology, the UH8050S can scan unencrypted analogue UHF police, fire and ambulance frequencies, UHF CB Channels and user programmable channels at the same time. It also has 100 user programmable RX channels allowing users to select from 9600 receivable channels. Featuring Instant Replay, the UH8050S can record and replay up to one minute of recent received signals ensuring important transmissions are not missed. The UHF mobile unit is also +12V and +24V DC power input compatible, making it a versatile inclusion to most vehicles available on the market.  Built for rugged Australian conditions, the new UHF radio has been temperature tested to withstand harsh summers and is shock resistant for high performance, even when travelling across rugged terrain. For added peace of mind, the UH8050S is backed by Uniden’s five year platinum warranty.  Other advanced features include a microphone and a built-in large LCD backlit screen for easy, remote access to functions such as volume control and power on/off.

Protect yourself from car accident disputes with new Uniden in-car camera 2013-01-24T04:46:15Z protect-yourself-from-car-accident-disputes-with-new-uniden-in-car-camera More than 600,000 road accidents are reported in Australia each year[1], at an estimated cost of $15 billion per annum[2]. Helping to protect drivers from fraudulent claims and accident disputes, Uniden has launched its first series of in-car vehicle recorders. Comprising of two models – the iGO Cam 300 and iGO Cam 800 – Uniden’s in-car camera range offers the latest in ‘black box’ vehicle accident recording technology.  Mounted on the inside of the car windscreen, the iGO Cam will automatically detect any sudden changes in car movement, such as when an accident occurs, and immediately record the footage in High Definition.  Whether they happen while parking at the shops, commuting to work or operating as a professional driver, all incidents can be recorded on the iGO Cam, providing evidence of who is at fault and enabling drivers to easily report incidents to police and insurance companies. The Uniden iGO Cam can also be set up to continuously capture road vision and users can playback journeys taken. This makes the cameras ideal for recreational drivers such as 4WD enthusiasts, parents wishing to monitor the safety of younger drivers or commercial fleet managers who seek to keep track of employees and protect against fraudulent insurance claims made to the company. Packed full of state-of-the-art features, Uniden iGO Cam utilises a HD Camera for high quality recording.  Motion Detection enables the camera to collect evidence even when the car is parked and without the driver present – with the camera instantly capturing footage if the car is bumped or scraped. With the help of a built-in G-sensor and the device’s Collision Detection Mode, the camera can also detect a change in motion which will instantly trigger recording. In the event of an accident, this gives drivers the ability to analyse the direction of impact and view how it happened. The iGO Cam 300 has a single HD camera, featuring Infrared Night Vision to record quality footage even when in poor light. The iGO CAM 800 is equipped with dual cameras, so drivers can record what is going on in the front and back of the vehicle, ensuring all potential areas of the car are monitored. “If you have an accident you might have to pay a hefty excess on your insurance premiums and you may lose your no-claim bonus - this can add up to hundreds or even thousands of dollars,” said Brad Hales, Senior National Marketing Executive, Uniden Australia. “In the shock of an accident is it often difficult to remember every detail in order to complete an insurance claim or police report. Capturing live road events, Uniden’s iGO Cams have can protect drivers from becoming a victim of fraudulent claims or assist in crash disputes – or for instances when your car is damaged in a parking lot. In-car cameras have also been known to help dispute unfair traffic infringements.” A plug-and-play device, the Uniden iGO Cam is easy to install, configure and operate.  Its portable and wireless design enables the camera to be transferred between vehicles as required.  An 8GB Micro SD Card is included as a bonus with the iGO Cam 800, and users can purchase larger capacity Micro SD cards for longer recording. iGO Cam 300 RRP $89.95 Ultra Compact Design 1.5” LCD colour screen iGO Cam 800 RRP $149.95 2” LCD colour screen 2 x 180º swivel cameras to capture extra wide footage whether from front or back of the vehicle Anti-shaking function for ultra clear recording 8GB Micro SD Card included Uniden iGO Cam series is available nationally from leading electronics retailers.

It’s particularly useful for apartment blocks and in-home businesses that receive a lot of traffic around their front door.

Appealing to the needs of this growing demographic, Uniden has launched a new series of digital cordless phones which incorporate an optional emergency alert pendant. Designed for easy use by seniors, people with disabilities and those with impaired vision or hearing, the Uniden SSE series cordless phone features large buttons, large LCD and caller ID display, extra loud audio controls and is hearing aid compatible. Text To Speech (TTS) announces the name of callers so users know who is calling before they pick up the phone. The system includes an integrated digital answering machine with a slow playback function, which slows down the voice when listening to messages, as well as remote access which enables users to check any messages left when away from home. Unique to the Uniden SSE phones is an optional emergency alert SOS pendant, offering seniors and their families’ greater peace of mind to know that help is only a press of a button away. Set for release in January 2013, this splashproof personal alarm can be worn around neck or wrist, and activated in case of an emergency such as a fall or sudden illness. When the ‘help’ button is pressed, the device will first call the internal home phone so that someone in the home may be notified. If unanswered, the pendant will then dial up to five phone numbers that have been pre-programmed by the user. Through the pendant, users can have two-way communication with their contact once the call is answered. If the call is not answered it will then automatically move on to the next contact until one of the five contacts pick up. The safety of the elderly and disabled, particularly those living alone, can cause anxiety for family members. An emergency pendant allows seniors to maintain an independent lifestyle, with the ability to call family and close friends for assistance if required, rather than an alarm centre. This also means there are no ongoing expensive monitoring fees, unlike other emergency pendants available. Featuring advanced XDECT technology, the Uniden SSE phone’s extended digital coverage eliminates reception drop-out areas around the home and provides greater call clarity. As the SOS pendant is linked with Uniden’s fixed line phone system it has long-range capability, ensuring it can be activated anywhere around the house or property.

In an industry first, the digital wireless system can record up to four cameras at once on the SD card so footage can be played back when required.

The state-of-the-art UBCD396XT can access up to 25,000 dynamic channels, including commercial grade channels. Ideal for truck, emergency and air scanning, users can pick up any frequency in the range* as well as make use of eight pre-programmed service searches: police, marine, railroad, air, CB radio, UHF-CB radio, racing and FM broadcast searches. This superior range appeals to a diverse scanner community, from those seeking emergency alerts as they occur, to diehard racing fans chasing the action between V8 drivers and their pit crew, to aviation enthusiasts hoping to listen in on pilot/ground crew communication. Featuring TrunkTracker IV™ Technology, the UBCD396XT allows users to follow all the action on the four major types of trunked radio systems: APCO25 Digital, Motorola, EDACS and LTR. Providing the greatest possible access to monitor activities and transmissions of city service departments, these four systems can be tracked on virtually all bands and all configurations, including narrowband and ‘rebanded’ systems. Complete with APCO25 digital capability, the scanner can pick up both digital and analog radio systems. Equipped with advanced Close Call RF Capture technology, the UBCD396XT can automatically lock onto nearby radio transmissions even if they have not been programmed into the scanner. This is ideal for use at events where the frequency being used is unknown, such as sporting matches. The UBCD396XT also debuts a range of GPS support features which can be accessed once the scanner unit is connected with an optional GPS Antenna. Location-based scanning will automatically turn systems and channel groups on and off as you change location – a simple and convenient feature which means users won’t have to take their eyes off the road to change channels. This GPS function also enables users to determine the location of the frequency they are listening to, in addition to location alerts and crows flight navigation. Rounding out the new features is Bandscope, providing a graphical representation which indicates signal strength of transmissions in a selected range. This helps users to zone in on possible interference sources, tune into intermittent signal sources and also help to pinpoint where the signal originates.

Uniden conquers one of the tallest buildings with its new Long Range XDECT Phone 2011-09-13T05:38:12Z eureka-uniden-conquers-one-of-the-tallest-buildings-with-its-new-long-range-xdect-phone Sydney, 13 September 2011: World leader in cordless phone technology, Uniden, has set the new benchmark in long range cordless phone communication with the launch of the XDECT 80xx Series Phone – so powerful its signal conquered one of the world’s tallest buildings.Determined to demonstrate that the XDECT 80xx is the only genuine extended long range cordless phone on the market, Uniden put its credentials on the line in a recent range and performance test. Conducted in June 2011, Uniden set up a conference call with one caller stationed on the top level of the iconic Eureka Sky Tower, Melbourne, and another caller at street level – a total distance of 91 storeys. A second test successfully completed a distance of 698 metres, from the top of the skyscraper to Melbourne’s famous Flinders St Station.Brad Hales, Senior Marketing Executive Uniden Australia, commented on the results “The XDECT 80xx Series performed exceptionally well, recording excellent and full signal strength in both tests – without the use of a repeater system. These results showcase Uniden’s superior XDECT technology, and prove that our cordless phones can deliver quality sound and clarity over longer distances than ever before.“While the average homeowner may not require their cordless phone to reach these extended distances, the XDECT 80xx Series is ideal for those seeking a solution to phone reception challenges or who desire the flexibility to make calls from anywhere around their home or property without interference.“The XDECT phone system not only provides exceptional call clarity within the home, but extends to other uses where normal DECT technology is limited, such as on larger properties or commercial uses within warehouses, factories or farms,” he said.This unprecedented range and performance is achieved through Uniden’s unique Diversity & High Gain Antenna system. This technology effectively eliminates drop out areas by sending out multiple signals and bouncing them off the strongest wireless paths to provide maximum coverage. In comparison, traditional cordless phone systems transmit the one signal only. To extend phone coverage to even longer distances, the XDECT 80xx Series is compatible with a separate Long Range Repeater.The XDECT 80xx Series comprises of 10 new models, including answering machine and non-answering machine phones as well as a waterproof and dustproof range, which is popular for commercial use and among those living on properties.The new phones are equipped with a range of innovative features such as repeater station compatibility, headset jack and belt clip for added convenience and portability. The XDECT 80xx is WiFi network friendly which means it won’t interfere with household gadgets, and multi handset capabilites allows users to expand the phone system to up to 12 handsets.Customers of the XDECT 80xx Series will also receive a bonus repeater inside every package worth $69.95 with answering machine models. Non answering machine phones come with a bonus headset worth $29.95 which is excellent value.The XDECT 80xx Series is available in leading department stores and electrical retailers.
