Integrated mining surveillance

When it comes to safeguarding the mining industry, there’s no easy way out. There are a host of unique problems that drive security and surveillance requirements on mining sites. One issue with mining is that these sites are often very remote and far removed from major metropolitan areas, meaning significantly less infrastructure to work with, which can make our task more challenging.

Measurable policies and multi-layered approach hit the mother lode

Extremely large sites, multiple facilities, high volumes of pedestrian and vehicular traffic and very valuable assets are common characteristics of mining operations. Securing these behemoths is often a logistical nightmare as threats from common thieves to illegal miners are added to the inherent safety and security risks synonymous with mine complexes. Hi-Tech Security Solutions discusses solutions with industry specialists.

Big video on your doorstep

There is no shortage of video analytics solutions on the market today, from very expensive, cutting-edge technology that almost perform miracles, to the cheap and nasty that are bought so that people can say they have analytics installed.

Security integration not simple, but beneficial

Commercial environments are no longer looking for individual security solutions. Today they want a package that offers all the aspects of security they need. Part of the reason for this move is cost based – it’s supposedly cheaper and more convenient to get it all from one supplier. Another reason is the need for integrated solutions that talk to each other for easier management and improved security.

The Future of Commercial Security

The nature of commercial security is changing, with a growing number of companies looking for integrated security solutions to meet their unique needs. “The age of individual security solutions operating in silos may be over,” says Gus Brecher, managing director of Cathexis Africa and group marketing director of Cathexis Technologies. “Now clients are looking towards systems and solutions that will assist them in the seamless integration of multiple solutions from multiple suppliers.”

That’s to say nothing of the ever present threat of a potential armed robbery. Taking all this into account, banking is one industry where effective security is a non-negotiable must.
