Providing peace of mind to the community
The public has a right to expect safe and secure surroundings. It is the duty of local authorities to provide security in all the services they offer. This duty of care extends to housing, public services and recreational facilities and is a major challenge, particularly when combating anti-social behaviour.
JS Security Concepts can provide a security system made up of a number of integrated components to make sure our public buildings and social housing are as protected as possible.
CCTV with innovative video analytics and behavioural analysis can be linked to intruder alarms and door-entry systems to provide the level of security the community demands.
Sub-systems: Core Options & Application Considerations:
- (Smart)Card/proximity reading ID systems (biometric components for higher security areas) – for employees and regular visitors
- Consider both security access and ‘audit access’ (time & attendance logging) requirements
- Relevant supporting physical controls – barriers/turnstiles/rapid transit gates/beams
- Reports/Traces for key control and usage audit
Video Surveillance (CCTV)
- Full-function cameras (PTZ) for general exterior approaches and interior uses
- Static cameras with software enhancements eg for motion detection, camera tampering detection
- Facial recognition – for high security requirements
- Digital video recording – on- and off-site capabilities for response, audit and evidence
- Motion of stationary objects: if, for example, an exhibit in a museum or art gallery starts to move then the operator will receive an alarm
- Non Motion Detection of objects: for example no motion of abandoned luggage at airports or abandoned vehicles in sensitive or high risk areas
- Virtual Tripwire / Sterile Zone Monitoring: for use in applications like detecting intruders in high security or safety sensitive sites like Airport Runways, Railway Tracks, High Rise landmarks etc.
- Motion Direction of Objects: Identifying Counter Flow where people/traffic are moving in either a wrong or unexpected direction such as the wrong way in a one way system; also to identify people, vehicles etc. visiting sites under surveillance
- Loitering Detection: loitering can quite often be a precursor to crime so a person or persons hanging around a site particularly a known trouble spot will be identified and the operator’s attention drawn to the situation
- Tailgating in Access Control: to identify if an individual or vehicle follows too closely the person or vehicle in front to get past access controlled entrances or barriers
- People or Vehicle Counting: used to identify overcrowding in queues say at airports, railway stations, supermarkets etc.; for marketing purposes to identify the number of people visiting different parts of a shopping centre so rents can be calculated
- Door contacts for entry to, and within, restricted areas/Fire exits
- Perimeter detection systems – also used for sensitive areas within the premises
- Personal Attack Systems – for reception, customer servers, cash handlers, guards
- Anti-Masking Intruder Detection Devices – an ‘interior perimeter’ requirement
Security Fog Protection
A number of advantages of security fog protection are stated below:
- Protect against vandalism: Vandalism is significantly more difficult when one can’t see what one’s doing!
- Reduces any loss: Should the burglar still snatch something from the nearest window, he can’t get anything else and the loss is therefore considerably limited.
- Gives you peace of mind: Get a proper night’s sleep when your business is protected by a Fog Cannon.
- Reduced risk = reduced insurance premiums: A logical calculation, so contact your insurance company and have a chat about reducing your premium.
