Xtralis ADPRO FastTrace 2/2X & IntrusionTrace Protects Volkswagen and Audi Car Dealerships
Xtralis has announced that SECONTEC, a premier security installer in Germany, after elaborate test process, selected and installed ADPRO FastTrace 2X & i-LIDS approved IntrusionTrace to protect Volkswagen and Audi dealership car lots.
Several cameras are used for a variety of security applications connected to the FastTrace 2/2X with IntrusionTrace for primary detection. The system provides remote visual verification with bi-directional audio and appropriate alarm handling that secures car dealerships throughout Germany in cities such as Stuttgart, Frankfurt, Berlin, and Hamburg. The deployment of ADPRO, significantly reduced the insurance rates for the car dealerships and ultimately interrupted theft while still providing a welcoming experience for potential customers.

Theft and vandalism at car dealerships is on the rise and as a result owners find it difficult to obtain insurance or experience extremely high insurance rates. “We delivered a successful solution to the Volkswagen and Audi dealerships that protected their assets and afforded them a major reduction in insurance rates,” commented Romuald Kowalik, CEO of SECONTEC. “This application is very challenging; as you need a very sophisticated system to distinguish human intruders from environmental nuisances & animals but also provide intelligent remote visualisation to determine if the intruder is a customer or a thief. Based on our expertise & experience with installing security systems for challenging applications, we selected and installed the Xtralis solution for Volkswagen and Audi because of its superior intrusion detection performance, ability for talk-down to the person of interest from the central monitoring station, and the scalability of the systems to thousands of sites,” added Kowalik.
"We are honoured to be the winners of the rigorous selection process of SECONTEC. Building on over 25 years of experience and tens of thousands of deployments, we designed the feature-rich ADPRO FastTrace 2X & IntrusionTrace with the innovation, flexibility, and reliability needed for complex perimeter security applications such as car dealerships. Our sophisticated intrusion detection algorithms deliver the highest rate of detection combined with the lowest rate of false alarms,” commented Mr. Jorg Tilkin, Vice President Security Systems of Xtralis. “We enjoy the opportunity to partner with leading installers and central monitoring stations to deploy & implement the Xtralis solution at some of the most challenging sites in the world,” added Tilkin.
The FastTrace 2X, launched in September 2012, is the first hybrid multi-service security platform capable of rapid and easy deployment of new services on all 16 channels. i-LIDS approved IntrusionTrace, a downloadable intrusion detection analytic, significantly reduces false alarms and can be remotely configured and running in minutes without the necessity of sending a technician to the customer site.
