the initial problem/need

In an effort improve the security of their buildings, plant & other infrastructure, Adelaide Processors management wanted to install a state of the art CCTV Video Surveillance system in their Edinburgh Park processing facility. CCTV would enable management to effectively monitor the premises and it’s operations more effectively. Furthermore, the CCTV systems would also help in managing their occupational health & safety programs. Adelaide Processors’ management sought competitive tenders from specialist security providers and finally chose Secure Zone and their CCTV Video Surveillance systems. Secure Zone was chosen based on their previous CCTV installation history, their high resolution solution, and perfected installation practices.

the challenges

Some of the design considerations that were considered included the highly corrosive environment within the processing plant. The installation team ensured that all cabling techniques were carried out in such a fashion to ensure the longevity of the system and that active equipment was housed appropriately in IP-rated housings. Other challenges included working around processing plant & chemicals.

the solution


IP Camera Installation

The solution consisted of a complete Hikvision IP-based system which included Network Video Recorders (NVR’s), IP mega-pixel cameras, associated switching & patching equipment, plus equipment enclosures to house the devices.

  • Hikvision IP Megapixel bullet cameras with Smart IR illumination
  • Hikvision DS-series x-Channel NVR
  • 6RU Equipment Cabinet
  • Extensive cable path works
  • Extensive UTP cabling installation works
  • x-port PoE 10/100/1G managed switch
  • Remote access & port forwarding configuration
  • Smart phone configuration
  • Web-client configuration

how the solution was implemented

Initially, technical design schematics and floor-plan layouts were developed for the site by the SZ design team. In-house project managers then monitored the construction site to ensure installation staff were on-site when required. The technical installation staff worked for several days on the site installing cable paths and hauling cables. From there, cameras were installed, aligned and tested. All components of the system were configured and documented prior to handover to the client. The Secure Zone technical team worked with external IT Service Providers to ensure that the installation of additional IT infrastructure worked in with existing site and client requirements, and that the system worked together harmoniously. This included establishment of the necessary IP configuration to suit mobile device interoperability. At handover, a comprehensive training session was provided to the client in order to ensure staff were completely comfortable with the system, it’s capabilities, and how to operate it. This included provision of custom-written user manuals making it easy for users to review historic footage, and the ability to archive it.

the outcomes


Rack Mounted IP Surveillance Equipment

At the end of project, Adelaide Processors management have a comprehensive CCTV system that provides excellent coverage of their facility and site, with an extremely high level of detail. Three megapixel cameras provide ample resolution to enable management to zoom in on specific areas of interest within the cameras field of view. Live and pre-recorded footage can be viewed from any PC on the local area network (LAN) or via smart phones and tablets. System and service requirement notifications are emailed straight to Secure Zone to allow for immediate notification of issues that might arise or require action – including power outages, camera connectivity issues, or movement notifications.
