Photobeam Activity Systems, Transformed

Jan 10 2019

We’re starting off the New Year with a big announcement! The first of our cloud-connected instruments are available in partnership with San Diego Instruments. The SDI Photobeam Activity System (PAS) is the easiest and most reliable method of detecting animal movement in the open field or home cage - and now it’s even better! Connect a BehaviorCloud Bridge to your PAS system and instantly transform it into a cloud-backed, collaborative workstation. All of the modern BehaviorCloud features you love now work with your SDI PAS system.


Connecting a Bridge to your PAS system makes your research better in so many ways:

  1. Data are automatically backed-up, so you never have to worry about losing data.
  2. User-friendly interface that works on any device, including your tablet or mobile phone. Control your PAS experiment literally from the palm of your hand and see the data being collected in real-time.
  3. Access your data from anywhere by logging in to your BehaviorCloud account.
  4. Collaborate with ease. Allow colleagues to view or contribute to an experiment by sending invites and managing permissions.


This is the next generation of behavioral research.

San Diego Instruments PAS system connected to BehaviorCloud Bridge

Since its launch in 2017, BehaviorCloud has offered sophisticated video analysis tools for animal behavior researchers. Backed by a cloud platform, we enable unprecedented levels of data security, convenience, and collaboration. The BehaviorCloud Bridge extends on this history by advancing the vision of truly cloud-connected laboratory. Read more about our vision here.
