VideoIQ provide perimeter security at one of the most prestigious housing communities in South Africa
VideoIQ provide perimeter security at one of the most prestigious housing communities in South Africa

Featherbrooke Estate in Guateng is one of the most prestigious housing communities in South Africa. Its expansive perimeter borders, among other things, a nature reserve and other open space.   Featherbrooke’s residents insist on knowing that they are safe in their homes day and night, but did not want to compromise the rustic and rural ambiance of their natural setting in achieving their perimeter security goals. Additionally, the solution needed to work within the constraints of a limited budget and be deployed quickly.   The wilderness area surrounding the community and Guateng’s climate posed unique challenges when designing a system to effectively monitor Featherbrooke’s perimeter. The system needed to minimise the time and manpower lost to false alarms caused by rain, wind, animals, vegetation or any moving objects other than humans or vehicles. In addition, the ideal solution would also protect the entire surveillance system from network failure or downtime in the event of a lighting strike and eliminate the risks associated with power outages in general.   It was determined that VideoIQ® intelligent video analytics offered the best available way to give guards, camera operators and remote monitors an accurate tool to correctly identify critical events, minimize false alarms and initiate appropriate responses quickly. And edge storage in the HD cameras would effectively address the challenges of power outages due to extreme weather conditions.   Solution   After considering several options Featherbrooke decided to install VideoIQ’s HD iCVR devices. The solution was quickly installed on the perimeter & integrated into the estate’s control room by SysControl – one of VideoIQ’s accredited partners and a preferred supplier to Featherbrooke.  The final design includes VideoIQ Full HD Video Surveillance Systems and IQ Track with remote motorized focus and high-power infrared LED directional illuminators from Tekno Europe. Various early warning rules were set for each device. Each VideoIQ iCVR acts as an independent device with its own rules and storage, eliminating the need to constantly stream video. The cameras were simply mounted on poles at the perimeter and connected back to the control room. The iCVRs installed just like a PC on their network, enabling SysControl to pre-configure and quickly install them on site when the poles were ready. All that was required for the control room was a Windows PC. Solar panels with battery reserve at each pole supply power to the illuminators and HD SmartGuards for lightning isolation, reducing dependence on centralised power. VideoIQ intelligent video analyticsoffered the best available way togive guards, camera operatorsand remote monitors anaccurate tool    The VideoIQ choice   Since the VideoIQ solution required no servers or other hardware infrastructure, Featherbrooke realised savings not just on installation and overall system costs, but they also reduced indirect and future expenses including additional guards, beams, fences and control room staff to monitor screens. An added benefit to Featherbrooke is that their new solution is completely scalable. They simply add more VideoIQ units as needed without modifying or upgrading existing infrastructure.  The new solution also wisely isolated each pole and camera, dramatically reducing risks from storm damage and power outages, eliminating a single failure within the system. Featherbrooke’s control room operators are now notified of any potential threats or incidents before they occur, as live video alarms are triggered for suspicious activity outside the fence. At any time, an operator can quickly review live video or search recorded video for specific events and times. They verify the activity before alerting guard patrols of suspicious activity. Unlike before, their guards now respond to any incident with accurate, real-time information – including the location and descriptions of people or vehicles involved. Detecting and analysing activity outside the community’s fence lets security guards respond quickly and appropriately to events and prevents a perimeter breach. The VideoIQ real-time prevention solution helps to minimise guard costs and provides the best instant alert and response options for perimeter surveillance applications.

Financial institutions of all sizes demand simple, reliable solutions to protect against fraud, theft, and accidents in the workplace. Advancements in camera resolution and storage capabilities have put pressure on banks and credit unions to upgrade their video surveillance systems. Upgrading to a modern, economical NVR server will greatly increase system performance and scalability for small-budget projects with benefits seen across both loss prevention and business insights. Reliable high performance However, not all banks have the same security budget as large institutions. This makes high-power, custom-built solutions seem unrealistic; however, small projects featuring bandwidth limitations need to retain the ability to scale up depending on future surveillance demands. Before any system expansion can occur, reliable high-performance must be established. White-box solutions compromise quality and underperform when exposed to the tough requirements of the financial security market. Fortunately, custom-built, video-optimised solutions are not exclusive to large multinational financial institutions. Network architecture When upgrading an ineffective digital security system, a new network architecture needs to be created. Usually, this means switching from DVR to NVR servers. As a result, network switches attach to the camera allowing for easier future system expansion. Along with the newly gained scalability, throughput performance on servers can achieve significantly higher levels.BCDVideo offers servers, networking and workstations that provide enterprise-quality performance for all financial projects, regardless of size Implementing a complete video solution with high-performance servers, modern networking protocols and powerful workstations in financial institutions is now possible, even for small projects. BCDVideo offers servers, networking and workstations that provide enterprise-quality performance for all financial projects, regardless of size. The Benchmark Magazine 2016 Infrastructure award winner Aurora Server Series earns its name by marking the dawn of a new era in DVR replacement. Small-budget projects that have previously succumbed to the pressure of sacrificing quality for short-term savings now have access to servers with redundant power, 12Gbps RAID controller with 2GB of Flash Based Write Cache, hot-pluggable helium hard drive, and 10,000 PassMark rated CPUs. These big project features fit price-conscious budgets while maintaining the high-performance found in enterprise surveillance. BCDVideo Titan Networking The Titan Networking Series is priced well below standard to ensure project size and scope does not prevent an integrator from deploying a complete networking solution. Without the added cost of a networking engineer, savings reach into the thousands. Additionally, by using cutting-edge technology like Shortest Path Bridging, Titan switches, backed by a five-year, on-site warranty, will run at a high-level for years. The Gamma Series workstations fill the void in commercial and enterprise environments. Ideal for access control and IP video surveillance, they are powerful enough to render high-quality megapixel images for applications running 24/7. Optimised for advanced graphics and video capabilities, smaller projects can use the Gamma Series as both a video recorder and viewer.

The retail security market buys almost exclusively on price; however, with higher-quality camera resolution being the new norm, there has been an increase in storage requirements. Simply put, white-box solutions that may have been sufficient a few years ago can no longer support modern surveillance demands. Video surveillance solutionsThe short-term savings associated with white-box servers quickly deteriorates into high long-term costs. Making an investment in a custom-built solution will not only save money by working reliably for years, but the elimination of latency and downtime will ensure all incidents become recorded without fail. Solutions that are built specifically for video surveillance reduce the total project time by removing the need to wait for parts to arrive, create the solution and install them at their destination. Regardless of the number of cameras, all video surveillance needs to be considered critical. That means enterprise-quality should not be exclusive to large installations. The BCDVideo Aurora Server Series is specifically built for the under-100 camera marketplace. Unlike other small market servers, the Aurora Series has a total system throughput of over 500Mbps and bandwidth to scale up to 200 cameras.
