Radar-controlled CCTV heralds guardless site security

A state-of-the-art radar detector that controls CCTV autonomously could dramatically cut annual critical infrastructure security budgets by reducing reliance on human patrols and manned guards.

Software security expert EyeLynx, a part of the integrated perimeter protection group Zaun, has launched the EPR-100 radar to detect moving objects in full 360°, up to 500m away across flat terrain, with minimal false alarms.

Integrated into SharpView video management software, it will automatically control Pan Tilt Zoom (PTZ) cameras that follow movements tracked by the radar to monitor, detect and early warn security managers of intruders on protected sites, such as utility stations, military bases, national borders, solar farms and large homes.

The EPR-100 radar with SharpView detects, tracks and records moving objects, such as people and transport, in high resolution, even at night, making it ideal for airport perimeter intruder detection, railway trackside public safety and building site security and asset protection.

The solid-state digital beam radar operates in the licence-free 2.4GHz band with meagre output power and poses no radiation hazard. As a result, EPR-100 is ideal for use in large outdoor spaces in any weather condition and under poor visibility.

The unit has an automated self-test mechanism and easy to use web-based control interface. In addition, video can be monitored for instant verification in full HD1080p and recorded for evidential purposes.

Chief executive officer Jay Patel says: “Even at night, we’ve installed this at sites where it has followed a train travelling at 60mph, panned back to pick up people, then locked onto vehicles entering and leaving the gated car park. In addition, the system relieves the burden on security guards having to monitor and control multiple CCTV cameras when several alarms are received across a large site.

“It can serve as a high-performance early warning of potential threats on huge sites at meagre cost, with minimal maintenance and no user intervention needed once it has been fitted. In addition, security managers can log in and manage the site from anywhere using our free SharpView Manager Professional software.”
