MyShield Is an ‘All-in-One’ Intruder Prevention System With Built-in Smoke Diffuser
The MyShield device from Essence Group can be used either as a standalone solution connected to 5G CAT-M networks or integrated into any existing security system.
HERZLIYA, Israel — Essence Group, a leading technology group developing and supplying wireless security solutions for homes, families and businesses, announces the launch of MyShield, which is described as a first-of-its-kind 5G-connected comprehensive intruder prevention system.
The MyShield all-in-one device can be used either as a standalone solution connected to 5G CAT-M networks or integrated into any existing security system.
It addresses the growing demand for preemptive intruder prevention, boosting protection of homes and businesses by forcing intruders out of premises before they are able to do harm, according to the company. Its versatile design is said to make it well-suited for use in a range of residential and commercial settings.
Essence says the integrated, easy-to-install system includes a passive infrared (PIR) motion detector, a high-definition video camera with recording capabilities for video verification, two-way voice communication and a proprietary smoke diffuser that fills a room within seconds with a veil of harmless yet disorienting smoke to force intruders out of premises.
The solution incorporates a Cloud-based services platform, including reporting and analytical tools, providing security services providers with the tools to tailor their offerings to meet specific customer requirements.
“Unlike standard alarm systems, which afford intruders a window of time to cause damage before a security dispatch arrives, MyShield enables home and business owners to effectively and directly remove them from the premises,” says Dr. Haim Amir, CEO and founder of Essence Group. “We are providing property owners with the unique ability to be more proactive and control the situation, by denying intruders the time and opportunity to cause harm. This is intervention at its most effective.”
While existing solutions tend to be costly, requiring connection to a power source and integration with a local security system, MyShield is battery powered and includes its own communications channels, enabling simple installation and ease-of-use, according to the company.
Essence says the integrated HD camera and two-way voice capabilities make MyShield the market’s first comprehensive solution enabling end users to personally detect, verify and force intruders out by activating the smoke shield.
“Essence Group has been driving the market shift from security solutions that merely monitor and detect intruders to those that actively intervene to prevent crime from even being committed,” says Ohad Amir, CTO of Essence Group. “With MyShield we are introducing a new concept, designed to provide people with greater peace of mind — intervention as the next wave of security innovation.”
Essence first demonstrated its advances in 5G-connected security and personal safety devices at CES 2021. MyShield took home a 2021 ESX Innovation Award.
