Video Domain goes game farming

August 2005 CCTV, Surveillance & Remote Monitoring

The situation

A small game farm that is usually left unattended during the week. The farm is fenced and has a proper entry gate. There is also a cottage on the property. There is no power on the property.

The solution

The landowner's requirement was easy to solve using a NetEye Light. He often gave friends permission to visit the farm and stay over. He required a remote 'video door opening system'. He wanted to be able to let his friends into the property and deny entry to others. This would require a 'door bell' at the farm gate, a camera, two-way voice and an electric lock door opener.

ERS suggested a GSM NetEye remote video monitoring system which can operate on 12 V. The NetEye has an 'alarm' switch that automatically dials out to a predetermined number when activated. This could be our client's home computer. He would be able to see who 'rang' his farm gate door bell and be able to speak to them. The client could then click the switching relay which would activate the 12 V gate lock. The NetEye could be set to dial the client's cellphone. He could then use his laptop with a 3G card to operate the system or go to a fixed computer.

NetEye Lite is a four colour-camera solution incorporating four sensor inputs, four audio inputs, four dry contact outputs, two video out channels and one audio out channel. The NetEye Lite enables transmission to management control centres and monitoring from remote sites.

As a complete CCTV system, NetEye Lite compresses, encodes and stores quality video on flash memory for immediate, easy access to recorded events and event logs. NetEye Lite is accessed through regular telephone lines, IP, ISDN and cellular communication. NetEye Lite also features internal high-speed, high-quality pre- and post-alarm image capture, selectable recording and transmission image/video size, PTZ support, full duplex audio, programmable alarm inputs and control outputs.

The benefits

With the NetEye Lite, tracing recorded events and analysing them is a simple and easy task, thanks to the included Observer software. And, the NetEye Lite includes unique tools for effortless integration into new and existing security systems.

NetEye is distributed by Emergency Reaction Services.
