New surveillance services

November 2019 CCTV, Surveillance & Remote Monitoring

The holiday season may mean booming business for retailers, but statistics show that criminal activities and burglaries increase over the festive season, especially in unoccupied offices and buildings.

The most common concerns in perimeter protection are trespassing and vehicle break-ins. Businesses that are planning to shut down should take extra precautionary measures to ensure their premises are safe and secure at all times.

Integrated business solutions provider Nashua’s latest surveillance monitoring solution uses artificial intelligence to ensure customers are kept safe this festive season.

Nashua CEO Mark Taylor says: “Our new Hikvision AcuSense technology provides the most accurate sensing in security hardware and is the first to use an AI algorithm to distinguish people and vehicles from other moving objects, including animals.”

Compared to conventional sensor-based alarm systems, AcuSense utilises its deep learning algorithm to focus on human and vehicle events in two ways: the device will only trigger an alarm when the pre-set intrusion type (human or vehicle) takes place and videos related to alarm events are sorted into human and vehicle categories for easier footage searches.

The cameras have the ability to watch events in real-time, obtaining key data around those events and providing solid and accurate evidence for law enforcement.

Taylor explains: “When a camera identifies an alarmable event, the view from that camera pops up on the screen that's being monitored and the person can notify the appropriate individuals. This allows response teams to arrive on the scene while the event is in progress instead of watching the camera footage after the event.”

The cameras are able to differentiate between types of vehicle – and allow trucks entry but not smaller vehicles, for example. They are able to recognize number plates and provide the make and colour of the vehicle.

Identifying number plates allows the camera to send an alert and track the vehicle through surrounding suburbs by using a link to the ANPR system. It then generates a map of the vehicle’s route and alerts authorities.

Taylor says: “Our solution takes the guess work out of securing your estate. Perimeter monitoring is key to ensure you are protected and keeping undesirable elements off your property and preventing breaches before they happen.

“We don’t believe in vulnerability. We do believe in responsibility and ours is to keep you and your business safe. You keep your eye on your business and we will see to your security and the safety of your office building or office park, even whilst you're away.”
