Wide-area surveillance with early detection

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

Consider the landscapes of South Africa. Large properties are common in our country, with the majority of the country’s land area being used for agricultural purposes. Unfortunately, crime is a sad reality in South Africa and a need exists for effective security solutions to protect the lives and possessions of our people.

Protecting large open areas in an effective and cost-efficient manner is challenging. In addition to this, security measures relying on response to, rather than prevention of, threats are not always feasible due to the remote nature of such properties.

Protoclea believes in a proactive rather than reactive response to securing properties. Being aware of a threat beforehand allows landowners to implement the necessary steps and alert security personnel, and thereby prevent threats from reaching the property. It considers various practical and technical limitations that cannot be addressed through traditional security camera systems and thereby provides an effective wide-area surveillance and early-detection system developed specifically for South African environments.

Oxylus is an adaptable solution that can be customised and configured to meet specific needs of landowners. Its modular design makes it possible to select the best, most appropriate hardware solutions for the intended purpose.

The system consists of a thermal and daylight camera fixed to a stainless steel, industrial quality pan-tilt head capable of rotating 360 degrees and of continuous monitoring. Both cameras record high-resolution videos, allowing accurate identification of potential threats.

The thermal camera covers a range between 50 m and 1500 m, depend-ing on the choice of camera, while the daylight camera features a 10x optical zoom and starlight capability. The system’s software features a configurable scan pattern, audible or notification-based alarm outputs, a usage log of events and user interaction, and considerable storage time. Optional extras include a spotlight (2000 m range), wiper, and access control capabilities.
