ITO R&D Farm Security Case Study South Africa

Farm Security Case Study

ITO R&D Farm Security Case Study South Africa

Overview

ITO R&D required a robust threat detection system tailored for farm and community security. The rural security system needed to operate with slow Internet connection, conduct fast real-time threat identification and weapon detection. The main reason why Scylla AI was chosen is because its intrusion detection and firearm detection system allows to run rapid and more accurate threat identification, decrease response time and set up a flexible alerting system.

OUR SOLUTION

Checklist icon
Scylla Object Detection system was used for quick and accurate identification of different objects of interests, such as people and vehicles.
Checklist icon
The robust Scylla Gun Detection system was deployed to monitor for different types of firearms.
Checklist icon
To overcome the problem with the slow Internet connection, and have faster response time, ITO R&D went with camera-embedded motion detection linked to Cloud FTP/SFTP backend server. Since photos are uploaded faster than video files, this sped up the analysis and cut down response time.
Checklist icon
Uploading from IP- and 3G/4G trail cameras directly to the Cloud eliminated the need for the on-premise hardware like DVR and dedicated PCs.
Checklist icon
Scylla developed a dedicated alarm dashboard that highlights the images with detected threats.
Checklist icon
All IR lights on the cameras were switched off and installed away from the cameras to eliminate false motion detection by objects in proximity, such as dust particles and insects’ movements.
Checklist icon
Alarms can be received by APP, dashboard and relay.
