One of the biggest challenges for effective border security is the sheer magnitude of the areas that need to be secured. Like all outdoor security projects, achieving control over the border starts with a concept of operations based on an organized interaction of smart sensors and guards, and they key is accurate alarms that guards can rely on. The […]
On Friday, October 22, SightLogix was visited by US Congressman Rush Holt to announce the selection of the SightLogix Intelligent Video Surveillance System to protect the wind and solar farms at the U.S. Dept of Energy’s National Renewable Energy Labs. WZBN news was on hand to cover the event.
Princeton, NJ (October 26, 2010) – The U.S. Department of Energy’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) has selected SightLogix® outdoor video surveillance systems for deployment at the South Table Mountain campus in Golden, Colorado as well as at the National Wind Technology Center near Boulder, Colorado. Video intrusion detection systems incorporating SightLogix Thermal SightSensor cameras and SightTracker Pan Tilt Zoom […]
We’ve added narration to the SightLogix perimeter intrusion detection system overview, shown below. Each video panel displays the view from a visible, wide angle and thermal perimeter security camera, while the bottom right shows a PTZ camera automatically steered to zoom and follow detected targets. The target’s location is simultaneously displayed onto the topology map on […]
When taggers spray-painted the canvas construction fence at a 21-acre religious and cultural complex in Chino Hills,California, the incident indicated a need for better security. For the BAPS Shri Swaminarayan center located at the site, a robust perimeter protection system would be required to keep destructive intruders from possibly damaging an intricate and elaborate construction project going on inside the fence.
When it comes to protecting outdoor areas, security professionals often have two main concerns: Not being aware of the risks that are lurking, and not knowing the place and nature of an intrusion should one occur. Intelligent video cameras address the first concern by leveraging the inherent strengths of automated systems and people. Smart cameras […]
Camera movement impacts outdoor video detection as a source of video analytic nuisance alarms. Without stabilization, video intrusion detection systems for rail security, airport perimeters, border security, seaports and other large outdoor facilities can be overwhelmed by nuisance alarms or misdetects.
The key to eliminating nuisance alarms for outdoor intelligent video is to use technology designed for outdoor applications rather than misapplying video analytics intended for more controlled indoor surroundings.
