Estate perimeter monitored by detector activated CCTV

RemGuard Visual Management, : 14 June, 2007  (Application Story)
RemGuard Visual Management supplies detector activated perimeter surveillance system with remote monitoring to Australian industrial estate.
RemGuard Visual Management - part of AD Group - and its remotely
monitored, detector activated, CCTV technology is revolutionising how
crime is dealt with 'down under' through the growth of its local
franchise operation, RemGuard (Australia).

A good example of how RemGuard's remotely monitored, detector-activated
CCTV service is being applied in an Australian context is the large
multi-tenanted Rosehill Industrial Estate, owned by ING Industrial Fund,
situated in suburban western Sydney, where RemGuard provides overall
'perimeter estate monitoring'.

In Australia ING Real Estate undertakes small to large scale, single
sector development projects, as well as complex large-scale mixed-use
developments for the ASX (Australian Stock Market) listed ING Industrial
Fund (IIF). Back in 2003 ING Real Estate chose to implement an
integrated RemGuard CCTV security solution at the landmark $137 million
Rosehill Industrial Estate.

Located near Rosehill Racecourse, this prestigious estate boasts high
profile multi-national tenants. The original intent was to employ after
hours security guards on site however due to the substantial cost and
burden to IIF's tenants; they chose to investigate alternative
integrated technology solutions.

"ING Industrial Fund's main security concerns centred around how to
maintain controlled after-hours access for authorized tenants with
hundreds of employees and contractors", says ING Real Estate's Asset
Manager Robert Ewing, "and how to provide adequate 'general site
surveillance' recognizing that each tenant would also have their own
internal security systems and procedures".

Although the estate is totally fenced, it remained susceptible to
after-hours crime and vandalism as it is located in an industrial area
largely deserted at night. ING Industrial Fund ultimately chose to
implement a RemGuard security solution throughout the estate. This
provides tenants with strategically located outdoor sensors and cameras
viewing building perimeters and key access roads, all linked to
RemGuard's Remote Video Response Centre (RVRC) after hours via a
512k/512k Virtual Private Network ADSL link.

A key benefit of this solution for Rosehill is the 'event activated'
video monitoring after-hours by specially trained RVRC security
officers, who are quickly alerted whenever movement is detected in a
protected area. There are approximately 80 outdoor CCTV cameras plus
long range and curtain PIR detectors installed across the site which are
linked to nine RemVu Aquilas and RemVu Communicators.

In operation, the powerful RemVu Aquila remote alarm transmission is
integrated with the automatic download of pre and post event images to
RemGuard's Remote Video Response Centre (RVRC). Crucially, all of the
Aquila's system parameters can be remotely monitored by the RVRC -
supply voltage, battery charge state, internal temperature and video
signal strength. The system will also report power loss and camera

The solution at Rosehill also includes PA loudspeakers in key areas,
enabling RVRC operators to verbally 'warn off' identified trespassers
before any actual break and entry is attempted via a VOIP network audio

Another advantage is book-marked evidentiary logging of video events
around the clock, in addition to after-hours RVRC 'event activated'
video monitoring and response. In addition there is card controlled main
gate access after hours, plus emergency gate control available through
RemGuard's RVRC.

"Since RemGuard's implementation began a couple of years ago, we haven't
experienced any major thefts or criminal events at Rosehill Industrial
Estate", said ING's Mr. Ewing, "and we think it's reasonable to assume
that the [RemGuard] video system has had a fair bit to do with that."

Added RemGuard Australia Managing Director Lindsay Brooks: 'To date, ING
Industrial Fund has not found it necessary to employ permanent security
guards at the Rosehill Industrial Estate, which represents a major
saving. With the criminal threat as high as ever, it's likely that more
and more building owners and developers will follow ING Industrial
Fund's lead in adopting a pro-active event-driven approach to
out-of-hours security.'
