Schwerte, Germany / Kortrijk, Belgium, September 4, 2017. Araani, a leading provider of video analytics solutions designed to protect people, property and processes, is delighted to be able to add MOOG Pieper to its circle of certified partners. This certification will allow MOOG Pieper – a specialist provider of video and security equipment – to distribute, install and provide customer support for Araani’s SmokeCatcher early warning system throughout the whole of Germany.

MOOG Pieper recently completed the certification training that Araani partners have to undergo – and with great success too. The training provides extensive information, checklists and examples, enabling attendees to install SmokeCatcher on site correctly and easily.

“We are thrilled to now be a certified partner of Araani,” says Andreas Fieberg, MOOG Pieper’s Regional Manager. “For many years now, we have been supplying the global market with rock-solid safety and fire protection solutions. We are certain that this certification will give us the expertise we need to also provide our customers with details, installation and support services for SmokeCatcher, the video-based smoke detector solution.

SmokeCatcher from Araani is a reliable smoke detection warning system for use in critical indoor spaces. SmokeCatcher Video Analytics is installed in security video cameras and enables extremely quick detection of smoke development in places where conventional smoke detection systems fail because they either react too slowly or trigger too many false alarms. Areas of application include the likes of tall buildings, dusty environments and highly critical hot spots in companies. SmokeCatcher examines the video images for traces of smoke and can locate fires that are breaking out directly at the source – practically from any distance.

“Araani relies on established partners in the safety and fire protection industry to help it find the best solutions and enable successful early fire detection,” said Pieter Claerhout, Araani’s Chief Executive Officer. “In return for their commitment, Araani ensures that its partners have a complete portfolio of high-quality services at their disposal – including training sessions, tools, instructions and comprehensive support – so they can install the video smoke detectors on end customers’ premises with ease.”
