Autonomous construction site protection

June 2024 Perimeter Security, Alarms & Intruder Detection

Construction sites encounter numerous challenges when it comes to securing their premises against intrusions and theft. This particular construction site is located in the middle of Dresden. Due to its easy accessibility, it was at risk of trespassing and criminal activity.

The construction site at Gamma Immobilien, Dresden, stores valuable equipment, machinery, and materials; all attractive targets for thieves. Protecting these assets is paramount to avoid significant financial losses and construction delays. However, a large perimeter usually has many blind areas, so security is always a challenge.

The Ajax solution was chosen for its extensive coverage (up to 1700 m) provided by the Baseline products. Wireless devices can be installed on large-scale sites, ensuring reliable protection across the entire perimeter.

The Hub 2 (4G) Jeweller control panel supports photo verification and serves as a central security system component. Thanks to the Wings communication protocol, CMS operators and users see the first snapshot from the scene in just nine seconds after an alarm. The hub uses two independent SIM cards (2G, 3G, or LTE) from different providers for reliable communication in any situation.

Buildings constructed from concrete and iron can hinder radio waves, potentially impacting the operation of a wireless security system. To prevent this, MS Alarmanlagen Dresden used the ReX 2 Jeweller radio signal range extenders, which also support photo verification. All the events are transmitted instantly, even despite the obstacles. Users and the monitoring station receive alarms in just 10 seconds.

The DualCurtain Outdoor Jeweller detectors monitor the entire perimeter of the construction site. Two independent optical systems with narrow viewing angles and flexible settings make it possible to adjust the detection zone accurately, excluding potential sources of false alarms.

The ELSA (Extended Live Signal Analysis) software responds to intruders, filtering out natural interferences. This is especially important at a construction site to prevent false alarms triggered, for example, by a bush swaying in the wind. Also, DualCurtain Outdoor Jeweller recognises attempts to block the view of the detector by painting over it, covering it, placing an obstacle in front of the lens, or otherwise.

MotionCam Outdoor Jeweller detectors provide an additional level of protection. These devices continuously monitor the interior site area, recognising intrusion from the first steps on the territory and confirming it with an animated series of photos in just nine seconds. Visual verification helps to assess the situation instantly, alleviating users’ concerns and preventing security companies from unnecessary patrol dispatches.

Why Ajax

Low maintenance costs. Ajax detectors boast a prolonged battery life, ensuring extended periods of reliable operation without the need for frequent battery replacements. This feature results in cost savings for both clients and installation companies, as they spend less on maintenance and servicing expenses.

Reliable wireless communication throughout a large facility. The Ajax wireless security system emerges as an ideal solution for customers who cannot set up wired systems in their facilities. Its standout feature is its extensive communication range, especially when enhanced by adding range extenders. You can easily install it and work around any obstacles, mitigating the logistical challenges typically associated with large facilities.

No false alarms. By combining software algorithms with a photo verification feature, the security system saves money by reducing false alarms and ensuring no potential intruder slips in undetected.
