Achieving Effective Perimeter Security
Effective perimeter security means timely, credible alerts with visual detail to respond. Knowing the nature and location of a perimeter intrusion is the key to forming your response. While there are several options for perimeter security, thermal cameras with video analytics are the fastest growing technology for perimeter intrusion detection. Smart thermal cameras operate day or night, and can “see” what the eye would miss, even over large outdoor areas in complete darkness.
A number of automated detection technologies including coax and fiber fence sensors, microwave, seismic sensors and radar can provide some level of perimeter detection. However, intelligent video systems provide advantages. When speed is critical, intelligent video perimeter systems can provide an intrusion alert along with visual information about the size, location and nature of an event as it unfolds.
Thermal video analytic cameras now operate well even under environmental factors such as rain, humidity, fog and bright sun, which in the past yielded poor images, nuisance alerts and mis-detects. The SightLogix perimeter security system has been specifically designed to accurately detect targets in a wide-range of outdoor environments while addressing the core issue of nuisance alarms.
Specifically, SightSensor smart video cameras have a high degree of image processing for cleaning up the issues associated with outdoor security. This includes stabilizing the image to adjust for camera motion from wind, and filtering out the unimportant movement from trees, leaves and small animals, while accurately detecting human intrusions even over large areas.
Situational Awareness and Perimeter Security
Achieving security awareness also depends on knowing the precise location and nature of an intrusion. To meet this objective, SightLogix smart camera systems use geo-registration with GPS analytics to determine the size, speed and bearing of detected objects to increase accuracy, auto steer PTZ cameras, and project the location of targets onto a site map of the facility.
