CCTV is a powerful tool for deterring crime and protecting property. And now, with the introduction of rapid deploy technology, its potential for cities and businesses just increased markedly.
What is Rapid Deploy CCTV?
CCTV Rapid Deploy Units (RDUs) are portable security units that provide instant, intelligent and user-friendly remote monitoring of sites.
They can be rapidly installed even where there is no power or data. Their easy mobility and installation provide effective surveillance to locations that would otherwise be difficult or cost prohibitive to have fixed surveillance in place. Equipped with advanced AI software these units manage big data and utilise the internet of things (ie: they’re smart). In effect, they allow you to beat time, location and service constraint and rapidly deploy high-tech security where and when you ne
The system can be powered by batteries, AC power or solar power, ensuring uninterrupted operation that is ideal for temporary, urgently deployed and highly mobile surveillance needs.
You can utilise RDUs for:
- Object detection and tracking
- Environment monitoring and sensing
- People counting
- Behaviour analysis
- People and object recognition
CCTV RDUs are perfect where there are:
- Changing incident locations
- Urgent surveillance needs
- Unpredictable threats
- Harsh environments that may threaten personal safety
- Unavailability of electricity, communication, lighting etc.
Applications for Rapid Deploy CCTV
If you think about situations where regular surveillance and CCTV would be useful but not always practical these are the situations that CCTV RDUs can be deployed. Here are just a few of the applications CCTV RDUs can be utilised for.
Public events monitoring
CCTV RDUs can be installed at designated spots for crowd monitoring and management during public events. 24-hour AI-powered video analytics provide real-time human and object detection and tracking. A powerful tool for keeping people safe and managing large crowds at public events.
Crime hotspot monitoring
RDUs can be installed at crime hotspots and areas where anti-social behaviour often occurs. Because these spots change over time, the RDUs can be deployed where needed, saving time and money.
In the case of civil defence emergencies when you need eyes on the ground, RDUs enable you to quickly restore communications without putting people at risk.
RDUs can be deployed for temporary monitoring of vulnerable environmental areas eg: coastal areas, waterways etc.
Construction site monitoring
Sites can be closely monitored for project overviews, health and safety and site security. Features such as hardhat and hi-vis detection can be very useful.
Waste disposal monitoring
To combat illegal dumping in public areas RDUs can be deployed at trouble spots. Acting as both a deterrent and as a way to identify offenders.
