Keeneo has introduced SafeZone Virtual Guard at Baitimat, a construction exhibition held on November 2nd to 7th in Porte de Versailles, Paris, France.

Originally introduced as SafeZone Cyberguarding, this Video Analytics package has been renamed as SafeZone Virtual Guard to better convey its key feature of being a virtual security solution to stop construction site theft and unwanted incidents in real-time. SafeZoneVirtual Guard is a complete video surveillance solution featuring Video Analytics that acts as a virtual guard that can automatically detect, in real-time, criminal or unwanted intrusion on the job site. Then instantly, the incident is communicated to a remote station video monitoring centre so that the incident can be verified and if necessary police or guard services are dispatched to take action. This virtual guard is operational 24 hours a day, each and every day it is deployed.

According to the French Federation of Building, in 2008, 1.5 billion Euros of equipment was stolen. This figure represents an increase of 66 percent to the previous year. To combat this loss and meet the extreme security requirements of job sites that are open to the exterior with exposed materials of high value, Keeneo integrates its technology with rugged exterior video surveillance equipment and wireless communication devices installed on 5.5 meter poles with wireless transmitters as well as visual strobe and siren warning signals that crisscross the area.

Once an alarm is generated, an alarm signal and associated video is sent via Internet to a central video monitoring station that verifies the alarm and contacts the police or private security for on-site dispatch. The remote video surveillance station can also challenge the individual on site with a strobe flash and siren. The staff can monitor using a PTZ camera in real-time the scene and any response.

Keeneo offers two versions of its offer SafeZone Virtual Guard packages

A Standard package that features the necessary fixed cameras, server and software, communication and installation accessory equipment to deploy the solution including remote station video monitoring services; and

A Premium package that features enhanced cameras with pan, tilt and zoom (PTZ) functionality, enhanced incident response services and remote video image transmission capabilities. The remote video feature can be used by owners, construction site managers, real estate developers to view the video in real time from their laptop or PDA, a time and money saving virtual management tool.

Dick Salzman, VP Marketing stated: "This security package featuring Keeneo's patented 4D Video Analytics now gives construction site managers the opportunity to provide 24/7, always on-duty, accurate job site intrusion protection to reduce or eliminate equipment, tools or construction material losses. Our solution pays for itself in a very short time and has proven to be beneficial in managing other non-security construction site logistics because of its real time surveillance and remote video monitoring capabilities".
