Intelligent surveillance system secures living environment of mansion in Taipei.
A large scale of mansion with over 400 households and occupied spacious dimension as 6,151.2 M² in Taipei County, is a famous indicative construction regionally. Unlike other areas, this mansion provides a better quality of living environment and ensures its citizens’ safety by full-featured intelligent surveillance system.
Requests of living standard are sharply increasing for modern people nowadays while high quality of security is a part of it as well. To secure more households and entry points, it requires more cameras and a powerful surveillance system to reach better performance. Based on this prerequisite, the well-known solution provider, GCC, chose huperVision surveillance system in the combination of practical intelligent video analytics, like loitering detection, virtual fence detection, secure zone detection and motion detection, to secure major entry points and building surroundings to upgrade security level other than video viewing and recording available in traditional CCTV systems.
In this case, the full-featured video analytics cover major entry points, including hallways, side entrances, backdoor fences that neighbor on other buildings. With advanced algorithms, these intelligent video analytics can real-time detect and analyze objects in secured areas and further trigger alarms. For example, the loitering detection function covers the hallway of a building to keep an eye on people who walk in and out routinely, and can instantly trigger alarms when suspicious people are loitering for a period of time. Meanwhile, virtual fence and secure zone detections are applied to monitor significant entry points, such as entrances for private use, and backdoor fence neighbored on other constructions, where are only accessed by specific personnel. And major entrances from the 2nd to 4th floors are secured by the motion detection to protect residents’ safety from being bothered by unknown visitors.
In detection areas the function of ignoring smaller/larger objects can filter specific objects, such as dogs and cats, in terms of object size to avoid false alarms for greater precision.
And the privacy mask function allows users to mask certain areas in the surveillance video for privacy protection.
“It’s like having virtual eyes!” Project Manager of GCC, Justin Chang says, “We deploy virtual fence detection and secure zone detection at several major entry points for 24hr surveillance and instantly event reports. Also, smart search feature aids the manager in saving much time to locate specific video segments from a huge database. The search results can be displayed in the thumbnail view for instant browse. Security guards no longer spend most of their time walking around the site but check reports when events happen.”
huperCenter, also installed in the mansion, works as a central monitoring and event management station to receive alerts from remote DVR sites, and generate event logs for quick search and archives. All intelligent video analytics can be scheduled by day, by week or by month while event notifications can be sent to users in a more convenient way, such as, by email, by fax, by phone and so on. In this way, security guards only need to export and compile record reports to the management committee regularly, and deal with instant events based on accurate reports nonstop.
The above vision-based intelligent video analytics can easily work through CCTV or network cameras with existing surveillance systems without extra hardware costs. Users enable to opt for key video analytics functions to meet personal demands in multiple applications.
“Efficient workforce relies on efficient surveillance and management systems. huperLab’s various intelligent video analytics enable to overall improve security and surveillance benefits as well as create added value to this indicative mansion,” indicates Chang.
