SiteWatch

Asset-saving surveillance for industrial settings

SiteWatch is one of the most recent additions to the Envirovision Solutions portfolio of groundbreaking vision systems. With surveillance capabilities far beyond that of closed-circuit television (CCTV), SiteWatch is a smart sensory system designed for use in busy industrial settings – including mining compounds, factories and construction sites.

How it works

SiteWatch is not “dumb” CCTV, using low resolution, black and white video footage, and requiring constant manual surveillance by a human operator. SiteWatch is a highly advanced automated detection system, using programmable cameras, high definition colour footage, computers and the latest in innovative image processing software.

Cameras are set up to automatically scan across your environment, capturing a series of images which are then relayed to a computer in a control centre. Here the SiteWatch software compares the sets of images for scene changes, and alerts a human operator if it detects any problem areas. The operator can then use a live video feed with powerful 35X optical zoom, as well as pan, tilt and zoom controls to more closely examine the situation, and request a security response if necessary.

Along with a security function, SiteWatch can also be combined with other sensors and tools to monitor a site’s emissions and general resource use. In this way, SiteWatch can help organisations develop “greener” operating practices.

The first SiteWatch system became operational in South Africa in 2009. With an increased amount of corporate interest and an ever-expanding list of commercial uses, SiteWatch is expected to expand to other territories in 2010.
