An end to end SilverNet Wireless network installed by Videcom Security is providing a full IP infrastructure for the backhaul of Watford Town Centre’s CCTV cameras.  

The SilverNet Wireless network has been deployed as part of a project to upgrade the town centre’s video surveillance system which has also seen the opening of a new state-of-the-art CCTV and public safety control room installed in Watford Town Centre. This has been designed to help police respond quickly to any incidents, whilst also providing the opportunity to monitor traffic flow and the supply of live updates for the Highways Authority.

Waltham Abbey based Videcom Security were awarded the contract to provide an IP Network based solution which would support the existing town centre cameras, whilst providing an easy upgrade path to ONVIF compliant Full HD cameras and control equipment that Watford Borough Council may wish to deploy in the future.

SilverNet (2)“One of our top priorities as a council is making Watford town centre as safe as possible for residents and visitors, no matter where or when they visit,” said a spokesperson for Watford Borough. “The relocation of our control room within Watford Police Station means that we can provide a faster, more efficient and joined up service, and that is good news for all of us!”

The SilverNet’s high capacity Backhaul links which provide a full duplex resilient ring, the 240 Mbps trunk links and 95 Mbps uplinks were used to facilitate the transmission of the images captured by 60 high resolution cameras located throughout the town centre to a central control room where SilverNet’s SilverView Network monitoring software is working alongside a Synectics Synergy command & control solution and bespoke VNSoft remote monitoring software.

By being able to take advantage of the latest advances in network wireless technology, Videcom Security were able to minimise installation time and costs by negating the need for the laying of new cabling and engineering work and also giving the local authority significant ongoing revenue savings associated with the existing Telco leased circuits which were previously used for CCTV video transmission.

The SilverView network management software enables SilverNet wireless equipment and the installed video codecs or IP cameras to be collectively managed regardless of their physical location, via a PC. It features an ultra easy to use on-screen dashboard which eliminates the complexity normally associated with the management of complex network systems.

SilverNet“Working closely with Mike Skett of Goodwill Associates, an independent security consultancy, we utilised the expertise of our engineering team across a number of disciplines including CCTV, Electrical and Project Management, in order to meet the client’s expectations for this project,” said Bill Mead, Executive Director of Videcom Security. “Despite having a deadline of just twelve weeks and the challenge of working through one of the worst winters on record, we managed to complete the project on time and on budget.”

“SilverNet is our preferred technology partner for wireless network solutions and our decision to recommend its Wireless solution for this particular project has been more than justified by the performance of the equipment which all worked ‘out of the box’ and has helped make this project a jewel in the Videcom portfolio. The equipment was delivered exactly when we needed it and we were impressed by the support provided by the SilverNet team at every stage including site survey assistance, factory pre-testing, training and technical advice during the installation and commissioning process.”

Securing car parks takes inter-agency cooperation and knowledge sharing http://www.securitynewsdesk.com/2014/04/22/securing-car-parks-takes-inter-agency-cooperation-and-knowledge-sharing/ http://www.securitynewsdesk.com/2014/04/22/securing-car-parks-takes-inter-agency-cooperation-and-knowledge-sharing/#comments Tue, 22 Apr 2014 10:39:48 +0000 http://www.securitynewsdesk.com/?p=42776 Peter Hughes, Head of Loss Prevention for NCP, has spent many years tackling car park security and has seen the detrimental effect car park crime can have.

Peter Hughes, Head of Loss Prevention for NCP

The security of where we park our cars is not something we tend to give a great deal of attention in our day-to-day lives, and yet car parks are prime real estate for criminal elements. This not only impacts our cars and the valuables inside, but the businesses and residences in the surrounding area.

Peter Hughes, Head of Loss Prevention for NCP, has spent many years tackling this issue, both with NCP and in his previous roles within the Greater Manchester Police force, and he has seen the detrimental effect ongoing crime in car parks can be to an area. He points out that it’s a key problem for city centres in particular.

“A car park that isn’t appropriately secure is a hot target for determined criminals.” he said. “The criminal element works as a network, and most are repeat offenders. This means that once they know an area, such as a car park, is easy to access they will revisit the site repeatedly and spread the word to others.”

Hughes makes it clear that it’s vital to displace crime from car parks with improved security so that criminals have fewer and fewer targets, forcing them to move on. However, this is not an easy task.

“Many existing car parks were designed and built in the 1960’s without much thought being given to security. This means there are a lot of challenges to installing successful security solutions, and it also makes a standard approach inconceivable as every structure must be approached individually. The very nature of a car park means that it’s open, it’s meant to be accessed, and in the majority of cases car parks are open to the general public, making access control unthinkable.” Hughes said.

The control of all points of ingress and egress is vital, according to Hughes. Security teams must be aware of all entrances and exits and measures must be taken to manage all of them. Hughes recommends several approaches, most of which are standard in NCP car parks, including:

  • Reducing the amount of entrances and exits used by the public.
  • Where possible, seal off areas not for public use and control access.
  • Employ emergency break glass or door alarms to all emergency exits.
  • Ensure the structure is manned by staff

However, Hughes is not satisfied with simply deterring criminals from targeting a structure, he wants to stamp out repeat offending and reduce crime all together. To accomplish this, he stresses the importance of interagency cooperation and shared knowledge.

He said, “A large amount of the theft seen in city centre car parks is as a result of repeat offending. These offenders are known to law enforcement agencies, they know who they are, what they look and dress like and how they operate. This information is a massive help to car park security personnel, so it’s clearly beneficial for these organisations, with the support of local authorities, to come together and find a central way of working.”

In Manchester city centre, NCP’s Loss Prevention Department, led by Hughes, undertook such a partnership with Greater Manchester Police. Car crime is a large problem for the city centre, with crime sprees taking place in waves normally at the hands of criminals known to the police. So it was widely understood that by taking repeat offenders off the streets crime would be considerably lower. NCP ran a joint operation with Greater Manchester Police endeavouring to do just that.

“We identified several ‘hotspot’ NCP car parks and purchased some vehicles which the police fitted with covert cameras. We then kitted them out with sat navs and baby seats to make them look like any another vehicle left on the car park to entice criminals in,” said Hughes.

He added, “Some sat navs were fitted with tracking devices so the police could follow the thieves and make arrests, and some were dummy sat navs. We placed the dummies in cars parked on the street and positioned ourselves in key vantage points with high powered lense cameras. When someone broke into a car to steal the dummy we were able to capture images of them as evidence as well as communicate at all stages with the police, who were located strategically nearby, over  airwave radio network.”

Initiatives like this succeed in two ways according to Hughes. Initially the operation is covert, so it catches determined criminals and ensures a conviction, removing them from the streets. However, eventually word spreads that this operation is in effect and the initiative becomes an effective deterrent system.

A similar scheme was run between NCP and other police forces across the country to great success. For example, a partnership with Westminster Police helped reduce the number of crimes in privately owned car parks by 58%.

The relationship with police forces and Hughes’ own experience greatly influences the way NCP security staff operate and are able to continually innovate. Not only are all NCP operatives fully trained in skills such as securing evidence at the scene of a crime, but Hughes’ knowledge of criminal elements generates new approaches to security.

Hughes gives a particular example saying, “Having worked in Manchester city centre as a police officer I am a familiar face with certain individuals, so it’s been possible for me to build some relationships. From just chatting with these people a wealth of knowledge on how thieves operate emerges. For instance, thieves are aware that they are known to the police, and they know that once they have broken into a car and stolen something CCTV systems will track them from one location to the next. Their solution is to find a ‘hiding place’ within the structure to store their stolen goods, so that if they apprehended they do not have it with them. They then return at a later date for their ‘loot’.”

This information enables NCP car parks to identify these areas and put a stop to the practice. But NCP is keen to share its knowledge.

“We are not working simply to secure our private properties. We are working to eradicate crime. So we always share our knowledge with other providers, nearby businesses, the police and other stakeholders such as government. Anyone seeking advice and information is always welcome to approach us. The only way to succeed is to cooperate and pool our knowledge.”

Screen Shot 2014-04-17 at 12.06.31A North Yorkshire farm has installed the latest in IP video technology to enable everyone to see all the new arrivals of lambs this spring.  

Mainsgill Farm in Richmond has fitted an AXIS P5534 PTZ Dome Network Camera to overlook the barn and the pens in which the sheep are giving birth, in order to allow visitors to the farm and its website the unique opportunity to see the lambs being born.

The high definition camera provides a constant live stream of events from inside the barn, showing all the new additions to the flock and giving viewers the chance to watch the lambs being fed. ‘Lambing Live’, as it has been nicknamed, is not only an educational tool for schools and children, but it also makes fascinating viewing for adults.

As well as the latest Axis cameras, the internet video feed uses ‘Streamdays’, an open platform hosting solution for converting an IP camera into a streaming webcam, from NW Systems Group.

Frank Crouwell, managing director at NW Systems Group said: “This was a great little project for us. The live video stream clearly provides the obvious ‘cute’ factor but it also serves as a very good educational tool for adults as well as children.

“As an Axis Gold Partner, we have worked with Axis for 10 years and have always found its cameras to extremely reliable and durable. We used an AXIS P5534 PTZ camera for this application as the HD 720p high quality footage allows activity in the barn to be clearly seen in real time. The 360 degree rotation means the camera is easily able to view the whole barn and an 18x optical zoom enables close-up viewing without losing image quality.

“For this installation, we also made use of the camera’s audio in/output function meaning that visitors watching the live web feed could not only see what was happening in the lambing barn but also hear it as well – adding to the overall experience.

“We currently host nearly 300 of these sorts of live web feeds, especially on our current Streamdays2 platform which is able to stream full frame rate footage. The Streamdays platform is extremely popular with the website attracting 3 million unique visitors every year. The web feeds are mainly used by our customers as a way to drive traffic to their websites and increase visitor dwell time. They provide unique and fun web content that can easily be shared across social media channels.”

Andrew Henshaw, owner of Mainsgill Farm added: “The Streamdays installation has helped all aspects of our business grow and expand both in terms of hits to the website and visitors to our farm shop and team room. We have been astounded by its popularity.

“Due to our location, many of our customers can only visit us when travelling across the country to Scotland. The live internet camera feed really allows our customers to feel involved in the lambing from the comfort of their own home.

“The image quality from the camera is excellent, vibrant and just like you are watching it in person. The zoom and positioning of the camera allows us to get a wide scope of our nursery and the movement of the camera can catch everything that is going on with the lambs.”

Atul Rajput, regional director, northern Europe at Axis Communications concluded: “This project really shows that the potential applications of network video extend far beyond that of simply security. The live feed has proved to be a real hit and in the last two weeks alone has attracted some 16,000 online visitors – it’s is great way to bring nature direct to people’s doors.

“The network camera can easily be re-located and reinstalled by the farm staff themselves so it can be used all year round. Even though, it’s currently watching the spring lamb nursery, it’s previously been used by the farm to monitor goats, llamas and even two camels, Doris and Delilah!”

Oprema, based in Cardiff, is more than just a middleman supplier. It is a company dedicated to sourcing and supplying security equipment products to the trade worldwide, specialising in IP and HD solutions together with Analogue CCTV, Access Control, Door Entry, Fire and Intruder products. 

The multi-brand distributor is driven by a team of talented individuals with years of installer experience. Collectively, the team has over 100 years of technical and product knowledge, which is invaluable when it comes to selecting the latest equipment and partners to bolster Oprema’s product portfolio.

This level of experience ensures an excellent quality of customer service from an informed sales team. Oprema also has a skilled technical support team that is capable of creating utterly bespoke and unique solutions for installers faced with challenging projects.

The distributor prides itself on understanding its customers’ needs, according to Tim Duggan, Technical Director and co-founder of Oprema.  “Our strength lies in our extensive understanding of existing and emerging technologies in the market.  Many of us, including the sales team, have installer experience,” said Duggan. “Therefore, we know exactly what our customers’ projects involve so we have the distinct ability to empathise with their needs. Added to this we provide certified installer training courses to help our customers understand the technology we supply.”

He added that it’s this approach, and a close working relationship between the technical and sales teams, that has led to Oprema developing an assortment of unique security solutions.

One such project is a hydrogen powered CCTV system with clean energy company BOC.  Duggan worked closely with BOC to ensure the final solution was tailored to the specific needs of the installation company and their end user.

Duggan said, “We teamed up with BOC in December 2012 to design and build a fully monitored, hydrogen-powered CCTV system for use at remote construction sites. The primary obstacle to the installation was the isolated environment of the construction site, leaving very limited access to power. After carefully drawing up a suitable technical specification, we set about designing a three-camera system that incorporated a fully functional dome powered by BOC’s Hymera silent hydrogen generator.”

The equipment specification that Oprema devised included a specially designed low-voltage DVR to connect to the client’s monitoring station, which was built and commissioned in-house at the Oprema head office. However, the installation was also designed with more than just efficiency in mind.

“We chose to use the BOC Hymera hydrogen generator as a power supply for more than its convenience and ease of use,” Duggan said. “One cylinder of hydrogen lasts seven days, making it more cost effective by reducing the amount of manned maintenance hours compared to a standard diesel or petrol generator. In addition, the only waste generated is water vapour, meaning the installation has a very low impact on the immediate environment.”

The final result was a system robust enough to operate effectively in the isolated location, with the low-voltage DVR, control module and router housed in a specifically designed weather-proof lockable enclosure. The system proved itself a success within the first two weeks of installation, detecting and preventing two thefts at the construction site, which later led to arrests.

Another installation company approached Oprema hoping to find a solution to a similar problem.

Duggan explains, “On this occasion we teamed up with a company called GB Sol who specialise in manufacturing solar PV modules and mounting systems. Using solar power they managed to enable the two cameras and two wireless transmitters to feed images back to a surveillance office a kilometre away, all year round.”

The support available to Oprema’s customers – over the phone, through remote access and in person – is not the only reason they continue to choose the distributor according to Managing Director, Matthew Epps.

He summed up his company’s philosophy and approach: “We work with respected companies and manufacturers such as Paxton, Milestone Systems, Etrovision, Panasonic, Comelit, Hochiki, Advanced Electronics, Flir and many more.  Anything is possible, but sometimes customers are simply unaware of the options available to them. It is our goal to make sure they get the very best solution by making use of our knowledge.”

Screen Shot 2014-04-10 at 17.15.06The new, high performance, analogue camera range from Grundig uses pioneering Sony Megapixel sensor technology to produce image resolutions of 1.3MP or 1000TVL. The outstanding 1.3MP range includes bullet, fixed dome and vandal-resistant dome cameras, all offering wide dynamic range, true day/night functionality and exceptional low-light sensitivity. Outdoor models are IP67 rated. Smart IR technology gives uniform scene illumination, at up to 30 metres, without over exposure.

Motion tracking zones can be configured within the camera scene and an electronic, ePTZ function allows operators to zoom into camera images for close-up, detailed viewing.

Grundig developed the 1.3MP analogue surveillance range to provide an affordable, accurate and high performance analogue solution for security installers and integrators. The 1.3MP cameras are compatible with Grundig’s 960H and standard DVRs, as well as DVRs made by most leading, third party manufacturers. This allows the cameras to be used throughout an analogue system or just in key locations requiring greater image detail, lowering costs. The cameras can also be retro-fitted into existing analogue systems made by Grundig or other manufacturers.

The range uses the very latest analogue technology, ensuring Grundig continues to lead the security market with its excellent products; outstanding image and build quality; and simple installation and operation.

Further advanced features include motion tracking, a defog function and ePTZ pre-sets. These help to make the new 1.3MP range an ideal plug-and-play, coaxial solution for a wide variety of security applications.
