A solar company in the UK needed some extra sunblock. That’s why Axis Communications has partnered with Agent Video Intelligence (Agent Vi) and Milestone Systems to protect the UK’s solar farms from theft and vandalism. With the combination of these technologies, the UK can more effectively protect the sites, even though the locations are remote.
Axis Communications’ AXIS Q1921E was just one of the products that made it all possible. The surveillance system, complete with new analytics software and video management, was rapidly deployed on several different sites for Wirsol Solar. Security Info Watch recently reported that the solution has already been proven to be effective.
The AXIS Q1921E Thermal Network Camera works to detect intruders, even during inclement weather. Even during heavy rain and fog, the camera can still capture a clear image. Also, with the help of video analytics, the Axis solution is able to detect and alert in real-time. Because the solution has already captured incidents of intruders who have been climbing over solar farm fences, Wirsol Solar can start feeling more secure.
With solar sites, thermal imaging can be the key element to detecting an intruder. Daren Lang, Regional Business Development Manager for Axis Communications said that their thermal imaging coupled with the right analytics can help solar farms with both their remote location and their environmental challenges. Identifying who is coming in and out of a site is important. However, according to Lang, detection must happen first in this type of environment.
Lighting and weather often come into play in dealing with security challenges of all kinds, at a variety of different sites. Capture Technologies can help to make a custom fit, made for any specific type of environment.
