Thermal cameras see heat rather than light, so they are a perfect “human detector” Safeguarding outdoor assets in a reliable and cost-effective manner often comes down to a single requirement: Accurate intruder alerts and timely information about the unfolding event. While there are many technologies available for outdoor security, smart cameras with video analytics have emerged as the solution of choice for detecting intruders in real time outdoors. Yet the best technology will be handicapped if the alerts generated cannot be trusted. Repeated false alarms can eventually condition security operators to ignore real intrusions, undermining trust in the perimeter security system. High Accuracy With Low False Alerts In most cases the short-sighted response is to single out the security force as scapegoats, which ignores the real problem: alert fatigue. After responding to hundreds of perimeter breach alarms that turn out to be nothing more than small animals or windblown branches, even the most conscientious security guards lose confidence in the system and start to ignore its warnings. There is no longer any reason for this situation to exist. By following best practices of product selection and deployment, it is now possible to use video security cameras to protect outdoor assets with high accuracy and low nuisance alerts. As costs continue to fall, many organizations are now able to choose thermal cameras as the foundation for their outdoor detection applications Smart Thermal Cameras Viable outdoor security must start with a sensing system that is accurate, 24-hours per day. For this reason, conventional wisdom asserts that smart thermal cameras are the best system for detecting intruders outdoors. This is because thermal cameras see heat rather than light, so they are a perfect “human detector,” and will ignore headlights, reflections off water, and other light-based activity, expanding their usefulness from their traditional role as night vision cameras to 24-hour intrusion detection solutions. Smart thermal cameras with built-in Video Analytic software offers several advantages: They detect in the dark with no need for costly artificial lighting They work 24 hours/day They ignore reflections, shadows, moving headlights, direct sunlight, and other light-based phenomena that can trigger alarms in a visible camera detection system Because humans give off heat, thermal sensors are far more effective in spotting a person than visible cameras They detect body heat of intruders over large areas In the past, the higher price for thermal technology limited their use in commercial applications, but as costs continue to fall, many organizations are now able to choose thermal cameras as the foundation for their outdoor detection applications. A smart camera needs to ignore the animal while alerting on distant person, even though the animal will cover more of the camera’s field of view Accurate Detection With Geo-Registration Smart thermal cameras are designed to detect movement, but outdoors, everything moves. A smart camera must be able to tell the difference between small objects such as leaves or debris and a person entering a secured area. One of the best ways for a camera to make this determination is through “geo-registration” which enables a three-dimensional capability. Geo-registration is a critical technology for accurate video analytic size rules that increase accuracy and reduce false alerts. Consider how human vision works: Our eyes give us depth perception – we can tell which object is close and which is far. But a “one-eyed” camera can’t, unless it’s geo-registered. For example, a small animal near the camera will look much larger than a man at 300 meters away. A smart camera needs to ignore the animal while alerting on distant person, even though the animal will cover more of the camera’s field of view. Eliminate Camera Movement With Stabilisation Many intrusion detection systems are deployed along open areas that are naturally impacted by high winds or vibrations from planes, trains, weather and machinery. Without image stabilisation, these applications can be overwhelmed by nuisance alarms or worse, outright misdetects. It is difficult for smart cameras to detect movement in a scene when the whole field of view is also moving from camera shake. The best way to overcome the impact from wind or vibrations is to choose smart cameras that stabilise the image electronically, before the video analytic rules are applied. Look for cameras that use electronic or gyro-based stabilisers as a foundation for their detection capabilities. Outdoor On-Board Video Analytics Cameras which employ both a high degree of image processing and on-board video analytics have a great advantage in accuracy and detection distance over solutions that employ analytics on a server, outside of the camera. Cameras without embedded analytics must compress the video data for transmission over the network. That’s a problem because compression removes most of the finer scene details—up to 99% of the original data—seriously degrading a video analytic system’s ability to accurately detect and recognize targets. In fact, on days with restricted visibility due to rain or fog, data compression has caused smart cameras to miss virtually all intruders in a scene. On the other hand, when the uncompressed imagery is processed by video analytic software directly in the camera, 100% of the raw scene data is available for analysis. With on-board image processors examining the full visual detail of every video frame, you can achieve a much greater degree of accuracy in detecting motion and recognizing potential threats. With on-board image processors examining the full visual detail of every video frame, you can achieve a much greater degree of accuracy Increasing Probability Of Detection Smart thermal cameras are a great way to protect outdoor assets. But the system has little value if people can enter a secured area undetected. Here are some pointers to avoid gaps in coverage and make sure your system detects every time. A perimeter security system based on video analytics operates by “seeing” targets that move into a camera’s detection area. Knowing the camera’s true range lets you design a dependable system with no coverage gaps. Unfortunately, some manufacturers specify camera ranges that overstate their detection capabilities. This means it’s up to the integrator to determine the camera’s true detection distances. Otherwise your perimeter solution may leave gaping holes that can allow intruders to pass through undetected. Determining True Detection Range The best practice to determine a camera's true detection range is to measure the farthest distance at which the camera can automatically detect a person walking “inbound” or directly toward the camera. Inbound detection is always less than crossfield because a person moving across the camera's field of view creates a larger amount of motion, which is easier to detect. In contrast, a person walking toward the camera produces very little motion, making the target more difficult to detect. In the real world, intruders can enter a perimeter from any direction, so it’s important to design the system for all situations. For complete coverage, the view of each camera must be designed to cover the adjacent camera’s blind spot Addressing Blind SpotsA camera’s field of view doesn’t begin where it’s mounted. Instead it can only detect at a measurable distance in front—this is the blind spot. Every security camera has a blind spot, and this must be considered in the perimeter security design, or someone will be able to walk right under a camera undetected. To provide complete coverage, the view of each camera must be designed to cover the adjacent camera’s blind spot. Perimeter Design Software Some manufacturers offer design tools that can help you model a camera layout using a Google map of the area under consideration. This is a good practice to check detection distances ahead of time and ensure that blind spots are properly addressed. SightLogix offers such a tool, called SightSurvey. Smart Video Solution Today’s smart video is an ideal solution to the new challenges in site protection that confront security professionals. It outperforms older technologies by a wide margin. It often costs less. Installation is less disruptive, and the technology is highly reliable. Essentially, a smart video security system is a force multiplier, taking the burden of monotonous surveillance off regular security staff. Instead of just watching endless video feeds, the staff gets information that lets them do their jobs better. When deployed using best practices of product selection and installation, smart thermal video is the obvious choice for outdoor site security applications.
SightSensors are thermal cameras with integrated video analytics, automatically detecting intruders Airport security has been greatly enhanced for Torp Sandefjord Airport, Norway through the deployment of SightLogix smart thermal intrusion detection cameras. Installed in 2014, the solution has been providing long-range, automated protection over key areas of the airport. Airport Security Risks As a popular alternative to Oslo Airport, Torp Sandefjord serves approximately 1.5 million passengers a year traveling to Western Europe as well as emerging economies in Eastern Europe, where risks from cargo theft, avionics theft, and controlled substance smuggling require constant vigilance. Additionally, high-profile incidents at airports around the world made it clear to Sandefjord’s directors that they needed to strengthen their airport security posture. Solving Airport Security Challenges With Technology Before SightLogix, Sandefjord had been relying on a combination of perimeter fences, surveillance cameras and roving guards to protect the site. Looking for a more effective solution, the airport turned to SightLogix Certified Integrator Focus Security, a Norwegian security firm dedicated to solving security challenges for critical assets throughout northern Europe. They suggested the airport move from a passive security posture to a pre-emptive automated approach using SightLogix SightSensors. SightSensors are thermal cameras with integrated video analytics, automatically detecting intruders over large outdoor sites with high accuracy and low costs. SightSensors offer several capabilities that make them an excellent choice for the difficult job of protecting airport perimeters. As thermal devices, they detect intruders in complete darkness as well as glare conditions caused by the rising or setting sun, headlights, reflected light and other sources. SightSensors also support built-in electronic stabilisation to ensure a high probability of detection without false alerts caused by wind or airport vibrations. And they are capable of detecting intruders over long and wide distances, up to 600 meters away, allowing a single camera to cover the same area that would require many visible light cameras. This enables Torp Sandefjord Airport to take advantage of significant cost savings while ensuring accurate and reliable intruder detection. The SightLogix Airport Security System At Torp With the smart thermal solution in place, intruders that violate rules trigger an alarm, sending video of the event and the target’s precise GPS location to the airport’s Security Operations Center, where security personnel monitor and verify the threat in real time. The target’s location is simultaneously projected onto a sitemap of the airport for situational awareness. The result is a blanket of automated awareness around all of the critical areas of the expansive airport. “The SightLogix system has taken Sandefjord Airport to the forefront of land-based security technology at airports,” said Ellen Sandnes of Torp Sandefjord Airport. “We offer a safe and enjoyable travel experience to our customers.” By enhancing the airport’s security with, round the clock intruder detection, the airport realised great cost savings by leveraging existing personnel much more effectively. Instead of hiring additional guards, which in that part of Europe can cost up to $25,000 per month, the existing force has been empowered with instant notification about the nature and location of a security breach day and night, and can initiate a fast and direct response. “Achieving security awareness at airports is a global challenge for the transportation industry,” said John Romanowich, SightLogix President and CEO. “We are pleased that SightLogix solutions are helping solve these challenges for Torp Sandefjord Airport.”
