NAT Security Solutions and Provision ISR in Schools

How we used CCTV Facial Recognition to give parents peace of mind

As a parent or guardian, you expect your children to be protected when they go to school or university. However, chilling stories, viral videos and the news constantly reminds us that more needs to be done. Easy access to schools allows perpetrators to get into the school, loiter and assess security conditions for break-ins or worse. Similarly, learners that have been suspended can get back onto school grounds and potentially inflict harm on teachers or other students.

Newly opened 105-million-rand state-of-the-art facility robbed. Suspects made off with 185 tablets, eight teachers’ laptops and other equipment.

While basic CCTV may be used to identify perpetrators after an incident, mitigating the risk beforehand is the better option. This is where Facial Recognition analytics on Provision ISR surveillance cameras have performed well in schools where they have been deployed.

Keeping suspicious characters out of schools in the first place –
Face Recognition NVR Search Modes

  • Smart Search
  • Face Recognition
  • Time-Slice and Event-Time
  • File Management

The Provision ISR CCTV camera has inbuilt facial recognition. The CCTV camera detects faces and then sends them to the NVR to be checked against a database of registered users. Any “uninvited” guests are flagged by the system for further action. A combination of analytics such as Facial Recognition and line crossing can be used to quickly identify anyone in a sensitive area such as a school computer room, lab or administration block.

  • 5 Faces per second (Single Channel)

Provision ISR CCTV in South African Schools

Parents will love this feature. When your child arrives at school, the system will send you a notification to let you know they have arrived safely. When they leave, you will be notified again. Should students decide to “bunk” or sneak out, parents and the school will be notified.

CCTV and Facial Recognition for the home

CCTV for the home is nothing new. However, the shortcoming with many old systems is that they cannot “think and warn” you in advance. Provision ISR is the answer. Triggers can be set so the system can communicate with you and give you useful data before incident occur. We will give you a few scenarios.

Home invasions are all too often caught on CCTV, but perpetrators are long gone when you get to the footage. New analytics features can be used to create zones and notify you in advance to take pre-emptive action.

Scenario one – using object monitoring to keep an eye on your perimeter

Any security specialist will tell you, theft is premeditated. Perpetrators will watch for weak points to strike and generally avoid situations that could get “too complicated”. Object monitoring can be used to identify vehicles outside your perimeter and alert you. Smart search can be used to pull up related analytics to assess frequency, times, dwell time etc. This intelligence can then be used to take the necessary precautions or action. Other reasons for analytics in the home include:

  • Face recogntion. Safer and faster than searching for remotes and keys
  • Notifications to your mobile device. Log in after notification to avoid false alarms
  • Object monitoring. Watch designated areas for suspicious activity.

Scenario two – face recognition to give short term access to temporary staff

Face recognition is a great tool to give access to your family and guests. Areas such as swimming pools can be closed off to minors with an accompanying adult. Temporary gardening and cleaning teams can be granted temporary access. This can be revoked after the service is complete. This way, keys and remotes stay safe without hindering work.

Analytics can also be used to keep people from specific areas without the cost of physical barriers. There are many more applications for your analytics around the home.

  • Face Recognition
  • Smart Search
  • Camera Tampering
  • Line Crossing
  • Sterile Area
  • Object Monitoring
