Ogier Electronics Scan-360 chosen by Bristol-based Remote Surveillance to provide 24/7 security
Ogier Electronics Scan-360 surveillance radar has been chosen by Remote Surveillance to provide 24/7 security at remote sites, throughout the South West, Ogier has announced.
The customer required 24/7-site surveillance to protect the equipment; Ogier’s leading Scan-360 radar was chosen. The system is fully integrated with the Remote Surveillance Site security system at the sites.
James Leventhal, Director of Remote Surveillance comments, “The Scan 360 is installed in over 20 of our customer sites, the performance, detection and false detection rates are by far the best we have had from any sensor technology.”
The sites tend to be very remote; tracks are laid for vehicles to access the site and specialised line replacing equipment, cable and other plant is temporally installed for weeks at a time, Ogier said.
The stand-alone integrated solution combines the Scan-360 Radar, Redvision camera, 4G-transmission with local recording and alarm integration all powered via Solar – with battery backup to provide what Ogier says is a truly bespoke mobile platform.
Radar offers improved detection over PIR sensors because, unlike PIR sensors, which measure heat emitted from an object, radar is an active system that measures the entire environment.
Imagine radar like a bright search light that illuminates a large area and detects all objects. PIR sensors can only look in the darkness for any infra-red energy an object may emit. The Scan-360 radar detects and measures the target bearing, range, speed and amplitude.
