There are no placement restrictions with a Raidervision alarm system as there is with CCTV or CCTV towers. CCTV, even the wireless systems require cabling and CCTV towers, unless you have multiple towers generally need to be located centrally on the site. This results in large areas of the site that are not visible either because clients don’t want cables running all over the site, or the central CCTV tower is unable to see through all the structures on the site, leaving blind areas where intruders can access the site without being seen. Additionally, CCTV towers are easy to spot and relatively easy to avoid. With Raidervision, there are no cables whatsoever and providing the detector / camera units are within 1,000 meters of the base station, there are no other restrictions.
Raider vision provides all the benefits of a CCTV tower in a modular package allowing 64 key areas of a site to be secured, more if additional base units are deployed. On average, 4 Raidervision cameras are the equivalent of one CCTV tower in terms of area secured.
The following diagrams illustrate the difference in effective cover between a CCTV tower and a Raidervision system. The Raidervision system in these cases being significantly cheaper than the tower due to the small number of Raidervision cameras required.
There are essentially two standard methods of securing a site. These are Perimeter and Trap. As the name suggests, perimeter detection requires cameras right around the perimeter fence to ensure no intruders gain access to the site without being detected. On the other hand, Trap protection uses cameras to cover the key areas of a site such as the gates, cabins, tool store, fuel bowser, plant parking and main thoroughfare areas. Trap protection is the most common choice amongst clients as it requires in most cases significantly less equipment than perimeter detection.
