SharpView from EyeLynx secures solar farms

folder_openHigh Security, Utilities

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 track 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 the broadband connection that, depending on the location, can be either satellite, 3G or wired DSL. In addition, audio challenges from the security personnel 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 smartphone 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 and energy demand. At the same time, the need to protect the environment becomes ever more urgent.

In addition to CCTV, Zaun can also supply a wide range of solar farm fencing, from demarcation fencing such as Axiom through to security rated systems such as HiSec SR1, depending on the threat level, it will depend on the type of fencing that is required
