Is your surveillance best in the market?

Setting up a security system is a must for maintaining and protecting critical assets, but a good system involves more than just installing cameras and hiring security personnel. When it comes to nationally significant sites such as critical infrastructure, or large developments, there needs to be a system that can do what all the others cannot.

With critical assets at stake, businesses and government agencies cannot afford to settle for less when installing a surveillance system. But some assets may face limitations such as being in a remote area where advanced security systems reliant on grid power may not be an option.

Often these assets must settle for traditional security systems using cameras and human personnel to retroactively tackle any intruders or issues, or simply do nothing and accept the consequences.

However, Spectur fills that gap in the market by offering surveillance solutions for critical infrastructure where it has been previously impossible to set up.

With systems that can automatically analyse and respond to various threats while being off-the-grid, Spectur provides more than just traditional surveillance – it offers advanced solutions necessary to keep essential services protected from theft and vandalism.

No need for grid power

There are many situations where traditional security systems may not be feasible, such as having no access to grid power, being in a remote area or operating in a temporary location. But being impaired by physical location doesn’t mean surveillance is out of the question.

Spectur cameras are not reliant on electricity from the grid because they’re solar-powered. This means locations such as parks, beaches and campgrounds can be monitored even though power connections are not available.

Instead of spreading human personnel thin across the entire area and throughout the day, personnel can rely on cameras to keep an eye out for vandals, intruders or hazards.

Even for non-remote locations, solar-powered cameras offer the ability to choose where to place cameras without worrying about having them near a power connection. Cameras can be placed on the perimeter of a property to stop intruders from even jumping the fence.

There is no other product that offers surveillance for remote locations. Spectur cameras are built to withstand harsh conditions, require minimal maintenance, and last for days when fully-charged, serving as a much-needed solution for off-the-grid security.

Sense, think, act

The Spectur system does not just capture visuals, it also analyses and responds to threats in real-time. While most surveillance cameras can detect threats and record incidents, which can then be used to prosecute individuals responsible for damage or theft, Spectur cameras utilise artificial intelligence (AI) to interpret the images being captured.

Rather than waiting to retroactively punish offenders once they have broken in and damaged or stolen anything, the Spectur system can act immediately to stop intruders in the first place.

The Spectur system can sense threats, think about the appropriate course of action, then act to prevent harm, damage or theft.

The AI can process images to recognise objects, animals, licence plates and humans to discern what is a real threat or not. From there, the system can undertake different actions depending on the threat, including visual displays, audio alarms, in-app alerts, contacting first responders and more.

As opposed to a retroactive response, Spectur is the only solution that offers automatic and real-time prevention, which is invaluable for critical assets that provide essential services.

Combining AI and fog computing

Unlike traditional camera surveillance systems, the Spectur system is enhanced through the use of AI and the combination of cloud and edge computing. While AI can help identify and respond to threats, Spectur’s unique cloud computing allows data to be accessed remotely while also engaging local computing for fast response.

Using fog computing means you get the best of both worlds – cloud and edge computing.

Cloud computing allows data to be shared and accessed remotely, but doesn’t allow for greater storage or real-time analytics. However, edge computing uses local computing to store large amounts of data and doesn’t rely on a network connection.

With an exclusive licence to use CSIRO’s Data61 fog computing system, Spectur combines both to store all data locally, but share only necessary data via the cloud, providing accurate analysis and information from any location or device.

This can help reduce false alarms and wireless communication costs, particularly for areas where the internet is limited. With faster and more accurate responses, issues can be resolved now rather than later.

Designed and built in Australia

Relying on surveillance software or technology developed in a country other than Australia could pose a potential security risk, especially for utilities or government assets.

Spectur’s technology, software and cameras are all designed and built in Australia. Using Australian software and technology ensures nationally significant data is not stored on foreign servers, which could potentially fall into the wrong hands.

Additionally, Spectur adheres to national data security standards and protections to prevent data breaches or leaks, which could result in damage or theft of digital assets and information.

Getting your system up to scratch

A security system is more than just good cameras. You need advanced technology that uses AI and fog computing for real-time response, while being able to store all data and captures on protected servers.

Spectur’s system differentiates itself from the rest by offering remote, autonomous and reliable surveillance that can not only spot a problem, but also make a decision and take action.

Whether you’re setting up a new system or upgrading an existing one, it pays to start with the best.
