Integrated security management system

Residential Estate Security Handbook 2020 Products, CCTV, Surveillance & Remote Monitoring, Integrated Solutions

Have you ever watched a spy movie in which operators monitor a large number of surveillance screens? Such scenes often appear blown out of proportion, but they are closer to reality than one might think. Take some time and do an online search of what modern day surveillance rooms look like; these systems are both intimidating and impressive.

In the past, CCTV systems were promoted together with video management systems (VMS) which essentially managed the display of cameras and the recording and playback of video footage. The quality of such systems has improved drastically over time thanks to continuous advancements in video and image capturing technologies. Storage space has also become a lot more affordable, therefore poor-quality video display and recording is a thing of the past and need not be tolerated in modern surveillance systems.

However, Protoclea believes that a security system should be more than just a reactive monitoring system. Such systems only allow a person to respond to a security threat, not prevent such threats from occurring in the first place. With our solutions, proactive security has become a reality.

Phorcas is a sophisticated security information system developed by Protoclea. The system is designed to integrate multiple sub-systems into a powerful crime fighting solution. It features a user-friendly interface, intelligent video display and video wall functionality. It is easily expandable and effectively functions over multiple operator stations.

The system can be integrated with video systems consisting of between 1 and 800 cameras, perimeter, biometric and access control systems, as well as system health monitors, amongst others, to offer a single user interface for all. The system also has strong analytical capabilities, including motion detection, drone detection, crowd activity monitoring, object identification and removal, and facial recognition. By integrating information from all available resources and performing contextual analysis, crime can be effectively prevented.
