Security and Surveillance Camera units are again in the spotlight
Recent additions to traffic cameras on the Gold Coast have given rise again to the “big brother” argument when really they are a key element in reducing road accident risk. Combination monitoring systems such as speed/red-light cameras are deemed by authorities to be one of the most effective solutions to reducing road and traffic related law infringements. It’s the combination of these two elements that make the deterrent so effective over the individual components separately. If the concept of combining multiple aspects of crime prevention is proven to be so effective on traffic intersections, how about building sites?
So what about crime and loss on building and civil sites?
A surge in vandalism, theft and other property damage across SE Qld building sites and civil construction sites has prompted the need for more advanced and sophisticated surveillance systems. The Advanced Group has stepped up and created a cost effective solution that is probably the most effective crime deterrent available on the Australian market today.
The main difference between our Active Crime Mitigation (ACM) system and most other site security cameras in use across Australia is in the operation and instant communication capability. Communication not only with the designated site contact person but more importantly directly with the offender before the crime has even occurred!
The Advanced Site Hub unit with ACM technology attacks the problem differently
Most site cameras serve to capture video and maybe even usable data of the crime. They also send a notification to the nominated person’s smartphone that there”has been an event”. If it’s not a false alarm, it usually means there is a crime in progress or worse has already happened by the time the alert is viewed. Handing over the video and info to the authorities unfortunately rarely results in a prosecution and more often than not simply ends in an insurance claim. As the whole process is not only time and resource costly, it is usually abandoned and simply “written off” before it’s even attempted.
Stop the crime before it happens!
The Advanced Group using a little common sense has figured out that a far more preferable option is simply to stop the crime happening in the first place. Easier said than done you might think? Let me explain how…
Lights! Upon the motion detector (or if fitted, the infra-red motion detector) triggering an event, instantly a 150W LED floodlight lights up the area like a football stadium. Offenders hate bright lights!
Camera! At this time the HD camera unit begins recording the offenders with class leading video quality an stills capture.
Action! At the same time a strong, authoritative voice announces to the prospective offender that they are being filmed, authorities have been advised and are on their way, and it’s probably a really good time to get off site a fast as they can!
At this point most opportunist, youth or let’s say “less than genius” would-be-criminals are doing just that and making good their getaway. No harm done, no cost incurred and usually minimal damage sustained.
That has to be a better solution doesn’t it? Here is a short (less than 2 mins) video clip of some real crimes being foiled by ACM technology:
