Philips protects the President

August 2002 CCTV, Surveillance & Remote Monitoring

Surveillance equipment from Philips Communication, Security & Imaging (CSI) was recently installed at the official State President's residence in Durban.

King's House on the Berea in Durban required products that would allow viewing under low light conditions, quick response to intrusions and controllable cameras that would allow the operator to view any area in more detail and to track moving objects and people. H&I Electronics, based in KwaZulu-Natal won the contract to supply the products for these situations, and they chose the Philips CCTV security systems range.

Included in its choice of Philips products, H&I Electronics used the Philips LTC0500 black and white cameras. The products' sensitivity to low light levels made them ideal for use for low-light and night-time viewing. For fast pan and tilt speeds to allow the operators to see a particular area in more detail, the Philips Autodome was fitted. The Autodome offers high speed panning and tilting with 360° continuous rotation and 0,5° accuracy on presets. In addition, the patented scaling feature ensures optimum control for viewing at all zoom settings. The Autodome includes a patented AutoPivot feature that automatically rotates and flips the camera - thereby allowing tracking of a subject walking under the dome.

System flexibility and integration was done via the Philips Allegiant Matrix. The Matrix is integrated to the intrusion alarm system in order to bring up the view of the intrusion immediately and automatically. This would enable a fast response to intrusions.
