What to expect from Valentine Radar Detector 2016
Posted On July 25, 2021
By Scott MacfarlaneThe radar detector is not new, but the idea of using radar to spot thieves is new to shoppers.
Valentine Radar Detectors are a big step forward for retailers looking to add security and visibility to their store entrances.
The devices are mounted to the inside of the door to the store, where they are visible to shoppers as they enter the store.
It is a system that retailers are keen to use in an effort to improve safety in their stores, particularly at night.
But a Valentine Radar detector is only one part of the system, which includes:Radar detector is one of the first devices to be fitted to a car, to give shoppers a real-time tracking of potential thievesThe radar can detect movement on the ground that can be used to spot potential thieves and also to warn customers of the presence of a potential suspectThe radar has a range of 2.5mW (1.5km) and can also detect movement around the car from a distance of around 5 metres (16 feet)The sensor is mounted to a door in the vehicleThe sensors have been fitted to about 80,000 cars, according to a spokesman for the Australian Consumer CouncilThe device works by collecting a series of data about the environment in which it is located and comparing it to a database of known vehicles in the areaThe radar’s location is not known, but it can determine the distance the vehicle is from the entrance of the storeIt is not an automatic warning systemThe sensors work in tandem with the front door and the dashboard, to allow the driver to know when they are about to enter the carThe device can be fitted on cars from the startThe radar detectors can work in conjunction with the car’s rearview mirrorThe rearview mirrors can be turned off, allowing the radar detector to be used without the need for a driver to be presentThe device is fitted to almost all cars in Australia, and is available from retailers in the US and Europe as well as some dealers in Australia.
It can detect speed, speed at which the car is moving, the presence or absence of a security camera, whether the driver is wearing a seatbelt and whether there is any visible or hidden security cameras.
It has a variety of sensors to measure movement around a car in an area and to warn shoppers when there is a possibility of a car being stolenA typical model uses a range from 4.2mW to 6.7mW of powerThe radar sensor has been fitted on about 80 million cars, the spokesman for ACCC said.
“This will enable retailers to improve the safety of their stores and customers by improving visibility, alerting customers and giving retailers the opportunity to improve their business.”
He said the sensors had been fitted in about 80% of the cars sold in Australia by retailers and dealers.
“These are the first to be installed in the marketplace, and we are hopeful that other manufacturers will follow suit in the coming months.”
