Thermal buffer zone

September 2017 CCTV, Surveillance & Remote Monitoring, Residential Estate (Industry)

By combining Flir’s thermal security cameras and video analytics control and management software, the thermal fence system provides automated perimeter surveillance, intrusion detection, and alert capabilities for any perimeter security application. Secu-Systems has developed a complete perimeter protection solution that addresses estates’ specific needs, as long as standard operating procedures are followed in respect of the estate protocols.

Increases security buffer zone

• Provide earlier warning.

• Improve event response time.

• Increase situational awareness.

• Respond effectively and efficiency.

Achieving reliable thermal perimeter security around critical assets often comes down to detection accuracy and solution cost. Thermal perimeters have proven to be the most effective means of securing a perimeter. Thermal imaging has significantly advanced over recent years and the result is a market tipping point for thermal solutions in relation to other approaches.

The PTZ tracker analyses captured video signals to send alarm notifications of people, vehicles and objects that cross a perimeter line, enter a predefined region or are left behind or removed from a scene. Users can set customised rules and criteria to define the perimeter and what should be detected.

For sites with Pan/Tilt/Zoom (PTZ) cameras, the unit controls the PTZ camera to autonomously track and zoom in on the threat.

These capabilities are now more cost-effective, making it possible to introduce thermal perimeter security cameras to a new range of mainstream applications.

Fewer cameras are therefore required making this more economically viable. In short, using long range analytic thermal imaging for your perimeter can do more than just protect the perimeter, it can increase your buffer zone with high accuracy.
