The perimeter of a site is often the first line of security — making the effectiveness of the solutions deployed at its edge crucial to its overall protection. To help protect your perimeter, we offer high-resolution video security cameras and access control solutions, which enable you to accurately detect people and vehicles coming and going from your site while helping to restrict access to only authorized individuals.

Seeing Is Securing

Our full range of video security cameras allows you to choose the resolution you need for clear viewing around your perimeter. The Avigilon HD Pro camera line starts at 4K and goes up to the industry’s first single-sensor 7K (30 MP) camera, which can capture high-detailed images across expansive distances while providing wide area coverage options, helping you cover more area with fewer cameras.

For sites that struggle with visibility, Avigilon Thermal cameras can help you see beyond the visible spectrum. The H4 Thermal camera line is designed to detect the movement of people and vehicles even in areas with poor visibility, challenging lighting conditions, absolute darkness, and partly camouflaged scenes — without the need for additional light sources. With patented Avigilon self-learning video analytics on board, H4 Thermal cameras are designed to help operators detect, verify and act on events in challenging environmental conditions.

“Clear video surveillance that can withstand challenging conditions is critical to our ability to protect the port from theft and other security threats,” said Axel Humberto Perez Flores, Head of Information Technology for the Port of Guaymas. “With Avigilon’s HD cameras and ACC™ software, our operators can centrally monitor and verify port activities, helping to ensure we continue to provide secure transportation and storage services to our clients.”

Control Traffic to and from Your Site

Secure access is another crucial component of ensuring security at your perimeter. Restricting access to your site can have a significant impact on its safety, as well as your risk mitigation and loss prevention efforts. The Avigilon Access Control Manager (ACM) system works together with Avigilon Control Center (ACC) video management software to produce action-based alarms and notifications when potential breaches occur, helping to ensure that only authorized individuals gain entry while also enabling expedited event correlation during investigations.

The Avigilon H4 Video Intercom is another tool to verify visitor identity and authorize access at points of entry. The H4 Video Intercom integrates a 3 MP camera with a high-performance intercom and features exceptional wide dynamic range, low-light, noise reduction and echo-cancelling technologies for clear viewing and two-way communication with visitors. Combined with ACC software, this secured entry system enables operators to quickly and easily identify and communicate with a visitor before remotely granting access.

Perimeter Protection That Makes A Difference

Securing your perimeter can be critical to the protection of your site. By deploying video security cameras that allow you to clearly see people and events at the edge of your site, as well as an access control system to limit entry to authorized individuals, you’ll gain greater situational awareness while mitigating the risk of intrusion.
