Smart cameras and video analytics are being used to protect solar farms across the UK.
Intelligent SharpView CCTV systems from EyeLynx have provided perimeter protection within budget and time constraints at several locations across the country.
EyeLynx’s Pharos all-in-one Rapid Deployment Wireless cameras with slave cameras have been installed around the perimeters to provide 24/7 site security and asset protection.
Pharos units record full HD1080p video and tracks potential intrusions on site using iLIDS approved advanced video analytics. The sites are monitored from a Remote Video Receiving Centre (RVRC) where trained operators can respond to events on site and make audio challenges where necessary using IMMIX software.
Intruder alarms are relayed to the RVRC through Pharos over broadband connection that, depending on the location, can be either satellite, 3G or wired DSL. Audio challenges from the security personel are output to horn speakers via the Pharos units.
More than two weeks of HD CCTV is captured and can be reviewed instantly at any time and from any client PC or security officer’s smart phone running SharpView.
Solar farms are being created to harvest energy from the sun – a clean, renewable source of electricity that produces enough energy every hour to power the world for an entire year.
Renewables will play an increasingly important role in the global energy mix as electricity prices rise along with the demand for energy while the need to protect the environment becomes ever more urgent.
