Obtain intelligence from cameras

1 March 2020 Education (Industry)

Violence in educational facilities is sadly increasing and the protection of children and educators alike is something that cannot be taken lightly. Crimes which occur far too often include theft, vandalism, intimidation and the usual assortment of South African crimes. Secutel Technologies offers a solution that allows for peace of mind to those who attend colleges and universities.

Locally developed and manufactured by Secutel, the SecuVue CVR (cloud video recorder) allows control room operators or campus security services to monitor events, collect vital information, record events and react accordingly.

The SecuVue CVR turns existing CCTV systems into intelligent sources of information. A single unit can support up to 16 cameras, allowing monitoring and surveillance from anywhere in the world. Snapshots are sent to the cloud in low resolution to save time and bandwidth. The platform allows control room operators and staff to deal with exceptions only, based on their unique set of business rules.

The SecuVue platform can turn ordinary cameras into intelligent sources of information and also extend the ability to detect potential intrusion. The analytics available include:

• Facial collection

• Facial recognition

• Intrusion detection

• Heat mapping

• People counting

• Watch list management

• Notification management

• Privacy and scene analysis (detect if an object was left behind/removed in a high-risk area.)

• Licence plate recognition and collection
