A river runs through it

Smart security for prestigious Pretoria estate traversed by Hennops River.

Zwartkops Golf Estate, situated in Centurion on the outskirts of Tshwane, is positioned around the prestigious Zwartkop Country Club offering an exceptional quality of life in a pristine environment. The beautiful Hennops River meanders lazily through the mature woodland and manicured lawns of the Zwartkop Golf Course. C3 Shared Services, specialists in electronic perimeter security solutions, were commissioned to design and install a full turnkey perimeter security solution to secure this prestigious estate.

C3 installed 40 analogue monochrome CCD cameras with IR Illuminators on the four-kilometre perimeter. An additional three thermal cameras were also installed to monitor the fairways of the golf course and inner perimeter where the Hennops River enters the estate. The analogue cameras on the perimeter and the thermal cameras monitoring the golf course and river entrance are combined with intelligent video analytics and integrated onto a simple to use video management platform. This solution allows for instant visual verification as to the cause and location of any alarms relating to an attempted breach of the perimeter.

The Hennops River runs through the estate and its entrance is monitored by a static thermal camera. Thermal cameras require no illumination in order to detect intruders and are perfectly suited to dark areas with no ambient light. Three more dual Field-of-View PTZ thermal cameras combined with intelligent video analytics are strategically placed along the fairways of the golf course.

The PTZ Dual FOV function enables these cameras to zoom in and out and move left to right and should an intrusion be detected these cameras can be used to monitor the direction in which the intruder is moving and armed response can easily intercept the perpetrator.

Nick Grange, technical director of C3 says, “C3 implemented a full turnkey project at Zwartkops that included multiple activities such as a fibre-optic network, electrical power ring, civil works, camera installation and command and control. The result of this was that we were able to complete this project professionally and timeously with no stumbling blocks.”
