Techpro recently completed Phase 1 of the wide area surveillance network at the Umhlanga Ridge New Town Centre.
The system has 21 high-speed PTZ cameras installed to monitor the area. The cameras are specified for day/night application and are linked back to Techpro's own control centre with over 7,5 km of fibre-optic cable.
The system, which has been implemented in conjunction with Morelands property development company and the Umhlanga Ridge Ratepayers Association, to keep the area crime-free, will be monitored from a central control room which is manned on a 24/7 basis. "The control room is in constant contact with the armed response in the area and can react immediately to any incident," says Danie Goosen, Techpro's MD. In addition to the primary crime prevention applications, the system will be used to monitor and control traffic flow in and out of the Ridge area.
The future plan for the system will be to link many of the businesses and domestic developments in the area into one control centre. This will provide a high level of service in the form of crime prevention and armed reaction in conjunction with 24 hour surveillance.
Techpro has also been awarded the contract to supply and install the CCTV surveillance and access control system at the new Tsogo Sun Suncoast Casino in Durban.
This project, which is worth in excess of R13 million, will see the implementation of a combined analog and digital solution for the gaming and non-gaming areas.
"We will be installing 700 cameras throughout the complex," says Mike Caffery, Techpro's project co-ordinator. "Cabling already started on site and the casino opens to the public at the end of the year."
Ultimate Access, Techpro's access control arm is installing the access control and door monitoring at the new casino. This system will manage staff access, time and attendance and parking throughout the complex.
