Resideo Launches First Alert VX3 Outdoor Camera

AI-Powered VX Series Showcased at CONNECT 2023 Customer Event

Scottsdale, Ariz. – Nov. 3, 2023 – Resideo Technologies, Inc., a leading global provider of solutions for home comfort, energy management, security and safety, today launched a new video surveillance offering for residential and light commercial applications at its CONNECT 2023 Customer Event. The First Alert® Visual Experience (VX) Series features two video solutions that offer meaningful notifications for person, vehicle, animal, and package detection: the new First Alert® Outdoor Camera and the First Alert® Video Doorbell, announced March 2023.

"Video is a leading driver of consumer engagement within the smart home, and now professional security dealers can offer cutting-edge video solutions with outstanding video quality and reliability backed by our trusted First Alert brand," said Pat Tessier, Senior Director of Product Marketing at Resideo. "The VX Series delivers premium performance, including AI-driven detection that can help reduce nuisance alarms for consumers, and a scalable video offering for professional installers."

The new First Alert Outdoor Camera is now available on the Total Connect® 2.0 app and features:

  • AI-Driven Alerts. Consumers receive meaningful notifications that matter most to them.
  • High-Resolution, Crystal-Clear Video. The 2-megapixel camera with wide dynamic range provides vibrant, detailed video and features color night vision in addition to infrared night vision.
  • Two-Way Interactive Audio. Visitors can be greeted, or intruders warned, via the siren or the spotlight deterrence features.
  • Durable Design. Ethernet and WiFi networking provide installation flexibility and redundant, as does Power over Ethernet (PoE) and 12-volt DC (direct current) power options, while it can withstand a variety of extreme weather conditions – including temperature, (-40 to 122 degrees Fahrenheit), humidity, dust, moisture, and ultraviolet rays.

"Resideo's new First Alert Outdoor Camera checks all the boxes: they designed something that's easy to sell, connect, and its intelligence can keep pace with our customers surveillance system needs," said Paul Romanelli, President of Suffolk Security Systems and First Alert Pro Resideo Premier Partner. "Our installers also really like the compact and modern design and back box that stows cables out of the way."

The First Alert Outdoor Camera integrates with Resideo's ProSeries Security Platform for on-screen video streaming and has flexible, seven and 30-day video clip storage options. The First Alert Video Doorbell and the First Alert Outdoor Camera are both available in North America through professional security dealers and on shelves at ADI Global Distribution, a Resideo company.
