Video Analytics protects South African Eco-park

Videoanalytics.org : 17 December, 2008  (Application Story)
Visual verification system for alarm triggers enables Xanadu Eco-Park in South Africa to protect its assets from vandals and thieves
Ioimage has announced that its Video Analytics solution was successfully implemented to protect South Africa's Xanadu Eco-Park from intruders and theft.
Located outside Pretoria at the foot of the Magaliesberg Mountains, Xanadu is a $200M Eco-Park with a perimeter of eight kilometers. Its previous security system, which included electric fencing and CCD speed dome cameras, had proven inadequate, failing to detect perimeter breaches. The estate was looking for an impenetrable and robust perimeter security system that would function equally well day and night without disturbing the estate's ecological balance.

The security solution adopted by Xanadu was a combination of thermal imaging cameras and ioimage intelligent video devices. The system enables instant visual verification of every alarm, even in pitch darkness, and requires no floodlights, thus maintaining the estate's eco-friendly nature.

"The ioimage solution has proven itself time and again and we've already seen a significant return on investment," said Nick Grange of C3 Shared Services, who installed the system. "Now when an alarm sounds, control room operators can quickly dispatch a response team to the area where the intrusion was detected. False alarms have been drastically reduced since ioimage intelligent video filters out extraneous activity caused by small animals, swaying branches and flying debris."

"The estate's security has been vastly improved and we are now confident regarding the safety of our residents and their belongings," said Thys de Wet of Clarence De Wet Incorporated, Project Manager for Xanadu. "With numerous thefts already prevented, the ioimage system has more than paid for itself. We are currently extending the solution to a second phase of perimeter protection."
"This is a great example of how residential properties can be seamlessly retrofitted with ioimage Video Analytics to increase security and safety, as well as prevent theft," said Dvir Doron, Vice President of Marketing for ioimage. "Its extreme reliability and rapid return on investment make it the solution of choice to protect estates of all sizes."
