Standing the test of time

Four years ago, C3 Shared Services designed and implemented an intelligent perimeter security solution for the prestigious Southdowns Estate in Irene, Pretoria. The perimeter of Southdowns is 7,2 km in length and the HOA required a solution that would give instant visual verification as to the cause and location of any perimeter breaches without the need for additional lighting. C3 installed 23 military grade thermal cameras combined with intelligent video analytics to monitor the perimeter and alert control room operators to any unauthorised activity on the perimeter.

The true measure of success for any security system is how well it continues to perform over the years with a variety of scenarios. Blanca Pretorius, MD of EBS Security who provides the guarding element at Southdowns, says, “C3’s thermal solution with smart analytics has been operational at Southdown’s Residential Estate for the past four years. I regard this solution as one of the best tools in the market and during the past couple of years it has actively resulted in the prevention and detection of perimeter breaches on numerous occasions. We have found this entire solution to be user friendly, stable and very reliable and use this system as one of our key aspects in crime prevention and safeguarding our clients. It has definitely proven to be the smart choice and well worth every cent.”

Since installing the thermal cameras on the perimeter, C3 has added another thermal PTZ to monitor the golf course area. Should an intrusion be detected in this area, the PTZ thermal can follow the intruder and armed response can be speedily dispatched to the appropriate area.

Four years ago, Southdowns required a virtual perimeter that allowed for instant visual verification of any intrusions day or night with no additional lighting and it is reassuring to know four years down the line that the system is serving them well and continues to be an extremely effective tool in keeping the estate secure.
