Safe , day and night Upgrade and update your estate security system with a solution that gives you an upfront and long-term saving. JNCS Beyond Security is offering integrated security perimeter upgrades at competitive prices and a payment plan designed for communities. State-of-the-art security is a given at almost every residential customers deploy a strategic mix of products – from visible light estate, but sometimes we forget that today’s state-of-the-art can and thermal cameras to motion detection and cross-line analytics to be tomorrow’s ‘vintage’ – especially in the fast-moving world of passive infrared and radar sensors. security and surveillance. So it’s important to constantly reassess your security systems, and to take advantage of technological Visible light cameras and thermal cameras work well at detecting, developments that can save on staff costs and effectively reduce locating and identifying intruders at the gate and along the false alarms and human error. As technology improves, you can perimeter. They can be equipped with advanced features like have a security system that is wide-awake 24/7, can see in the dark, auto tracking or video motion detection; however, since motion think on its feet (even though it doesn’t actually have feet) and detection relies on visual data, the accuracy of a visible light camera shrugs off rain, wind and sun. dips when operating outdoors and at night. The problem with many estate security camera systems is that Thermal cameras, on the other hand, respond to the heat signature they’re often obvious, obtrusive and unable to achieve adequate of objects rather than visible light, which makes them a good image clarity. The AXIS Q6125-LE PTZ Network Camera solves all complement to visible light cameras. They are able to detect and those problems and more. An outdoor-ready pan-tilt-zoom (PTZ) distinguish people, vehicles and anomalous activity in shadows, camera, it delivers a unique combination of discretion and built- complete darkness or other challenging conditions such as smoke in infrared (IR) illumination, coupled with wide-area coverage and and dust. The cost of thermal cameras has come down in price high-performance image detail. making it an affordable solution for the security sector. When it’s paired with the AXIS D2050-VE Network Radar Detector, The other option now on the market is network radar detector the AXIS Q6125-LE camera can be triggered to zoom into a certain technology,34 which detects based on radio waves. These detectors position and follow an object, using Axis Radar Autotracking for provide good coverage and trigger few false alarms, even during PTZ. The camera moves quickly, too. It has the same mechanics as night time surveillance. all AXIS Q61 series cameras, giving it a lightning-fast pan speed of 700° per second. That means it can easily change its viewing position, zoom in quickly, and accurately follow fast- moving objects. Benefits of combining this technology 50 | Integrating video with radar The benefits of network radar include ease of installation – as it only requires a PoE network point – and ease of integration with other security systems. While network radar detectors are not infallible, integrating their data with network video cameras gives users a When it comes to securing a perimeter, no way to independently verify motion detection. Rules can then be single technology does it all. Every tool in established that state that only when both detectors (video and radar) the toolbox has its strengths and limitations agree there has been motion in the area of interest will a positive when faced with the unique topography of perimeter detection alarm be transmitted to the operator or central the environment and the variety of potential monitoring station along with detailed information about the object threats. That’s why JNCS Beyond Security, as in motion. This collaborative validation can achieve significant cost system integrators, generally recommend that savings by reducing false alarms and diversion of valuable resources www.estate-living.co.za
