“The technologies discussed in the Smart Video Security Handbook present a profound opportunity to make the world safer, and yet the fundamental concepts have been largely misunderstood,” said John Romanowich, CEO, SightLogix, Inc. “We wrote this book to demystify the issues and help security professionals achieve true situational awareness for outdoor applications – and in the future – indoor environments.”
Outdoor Video Security: Lessons Learned
Smart outdoor video security is an active, pre-emptive tool for stopping intruders. It detects potential security breaches and gives security staff the visual and location data necessary to intervene, with very few nuisance alerts. In addition to perimeter protection, it will effectively cover specific objects and areas on a site, enabling a volumetric approach to security.
The Smart Video Security Handbook incorporates many of the lessons learned about smart video technology and its practical applications.
- Advantages and limits of smart thermal video security
- How to select the proper equipment and use it effectively
- Designing systems for effectiveness, easy implementation, and low cost
- Ensuring maximum site coverage and prompt response to events
- Sample site plans for security systems, with diagrams and explanations
- Using smart thermal video with a security operations center (SOC) or central station (CS) monitoring service
- New directions for indoor security applications
