A hazard and bushfire early warning system can save lives. Integrate smoke or temperature sensors, and your Spectur platform will be able to visibly and audibly warn the community and provide further instructions for evacuation. Onboard microphones or optional video phones allow for two-way communication. You can remotely assess what’s happening with a live feed and deploy these mobile or fixed solar-powered solutions as needed.
The instant a tagged shark or smart drumline triggers an integrated sensor, the Spectur system can emit a bright visual alarm and spoken (shouted) instructions to leave the water. This can be heard up to 400m from shore. Because our systems are wireless and only need 3G or 4G reception to transmit data, they can and have been deployed at the most remote beaches. Access is no problem as our systems can be hand carried and assembled in situ to tackle the most challenging of sites.
Whether it’s tsunamis, avalanches or erosion you’re looking to monitor, Spectur’s field platforms can gather warnings through solar or battery-powered sensors directly or via the internet. You can visually check in with the site, assess conditions and warn when an alert is triggered, while maintaining a record of camera imagery to show changes over time. It is even possible to deploy remote warnings to a Spectur smart solar-powered signboard to advise of closed beaches, rips, pickpockets or any other message.
Spectur’s IoT-enabled security platforms can be used to develop almost any warning system you can think of. For example, we can add sensors and create triggers from noise, vibration, weather and air quality data. Whether you want to integrate an accelerometer, vibration sensor or seismometer, our team can assist with installation, servicing, and maintenance. Similarly, you can choose to communicate via voice, phone or on a screen with the field, to suit your applications.

The STA6 provides true multi-camera and exceptional nighttime vision, as well as the ability to deploy edge-based AI (for people counting for example). It is ideal for larger sites and where greater range is needed for visibility, detection and deterrence. The STA6 supports GPS positioning and both cloud and edge-based AI, for a vast range of sensing and monitoring options. With 4K ultralow-light imagery or long-range thermal vision, the option of 360-degree vision and a built-in microphone and speaker for two-way communication in the field, the STA6 is a game-changer.
The HD5 is already powering thousands of early warning, security and surveillance systems on beaches, farms and in cities. With its robust design incorporating a solar panel, battery, full-colour HD camera, modem, speaker and bright light plus the option of thermal imaging, the HD5 uses 3G or 4G reception to send and receive data via the cloud and emit clear audio and visual warnings. It’s the cost-effective choice for site monitoring, active deterrence and warning systems. The HD5 is an ideal platform to support multiple additional hardware devices as well.
The solution was an autonomous “lifeguard” or “ranger”, able to attract attention and tell people to get out of the water when hazards were identified by the community, smart drumlines, tagged sharks triggering seabed sensors or other inputs.
The Spectur “lifeguard” involved a camera-based platform, triggered remotely via the internet and 3G/4G modem to activate high visibility warning lights and a 98dB loudhailer with a spoken warning. This solar platform was installed at multiple unpatrolled beaches to provide warnings. The councils that deploy these systems can also log in to the cameras in the platforms to observe conditions in the area at any time.
