Conventional security systems struggle to tackle common security challenges of prison systems, including prison breaks, inmate attacks or illegal deliveries to inmates via drones. Wide area surveillance of entire prison facilities and surroundings can be expensive and traditional video surveillance fails in darkness or unfavourable weather conditions. What is more: Any system that depends on human guards to monitor screens will have security gaps due to inattentiveness or fatigue.
Hexagon’s 3D Surveillance solution enables operators of government facilities like prisons to increase their ability to detect and react to intrusions or events in a cost-effective way. Hexagon’s smart 3D Surveillance system uses sensor fusion technology — a combination of video cameras, thermal imaging and LiDAR — along with edge computing and AI to detect and report physical changes within a space instantly, providing detailed insights into any activity, intrusion or event. The system operates effectively in all weather conditions and automactially triggers notifications with comprehensive information in an alarm event. With such support, security teams can respond more quickly and effectively to active situations.
