Vehicle and driver identification

Residential Estate Security Handbook 2020 Products, CCTV, Surveillance & Remote Monitoring, Perimeter Security, Alarms & Intruder Detection

According to Stats SA, over 83 000 vehicles were reported stolen in 2018/2019 with around 32 000 incidents of hijacking reported during this period. Not only do vehicle thefts and hijackings result in considerable financial loss, but endanger the lives of victims as well.

Vehicle management systems offer an effective solution to avoid becoming one of these statistics. Such systems should consist of two major components: vehicle and driver identification. These components can be achieved through a range of solutions, from manual identification by a security guard through to automated identification solutions such as ANPR and biometrics. Of course, there are pros and cons to each of these regarding cost, quality and system performance.

Benjamin Franklin once said, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” This is the central theme behind the products designed at Protoclea. The company’s Detecta system offers automated vehicle identification and secure access management solutions and can be customised to meet your specific needs. It can function as a standalone system or be integrated with an existing access management system.

Detecta features vehicle identification (make and model), automated number plate recognition (ANPR), vehicle colour recognition, driver identification, high speed and free flow detection capabilities. It confirms that the vehicle and driver entering the premises are matched to the vehicle and driver exiting the premises. The system can also be used to generate local or cloud-based whitelists and blacklists and can be integrated with stolen vehicle databases. The software also offers analytics to identify discrepancies or suspicious activities on the premises.
