Solving utility security challenges

Hear how utility companies are using video security and access control solutions to protect their sites and streamline operations.

Your first line of defense

Keep your power substation, waste management or other utility sector site perimeter safe from trespassers and identify potential threats before they access your site.

  • Secure restricted areas

    Prevent trespassers or unauthorized individuals from accessing certain areas of your power or water treatment plant with our access control solutions.

  • Detect intrusions faster

    Video analytics can promote utility perimeter security by notifying you when a perimeter violation at the fence line is detected so you can respond quickly.

  • Confirm what you see

    Our unified video security and access control technology review live video alongside access control events to verify the identity of a person.

Work onsite or on-the-go

Our power company security system allows you to manage your sites easily, whether at the office, visiting a substation or traveling in between.

  • Access your system from anywhere

    Access live video streams from your electrical substation security cameras at any time from any authorized PC that is connected to the internet.

  • Reduce travel time

    Cloud technology allows you to access your sites by mobile device or web browser so you can check on system health without visiting your site.

  • Provide or revoke access

    Grant or revoke access control permissions and lock or unlock doors remotely to streamline system management.

See through challenging conditions

Choose from our expansive portfolio of utility company security cameras to help ensure visibility across your sites, regardless of lighting challenges, harsh weather or other environmental conditions.

  • Find the right fit

    We offer a wide selection of substation security cameras to meet your unique needs, including pan-tilt-zoom capabilities and up to 10K resolution.

  • See more in the dark

    IR and thermal technology helps you see through dust, debris, poor weather and darkness so that you can maintain awareness of your site under any conditions.

    Leverage video security cameras that feature analytic capabilities to help you detect unusual events, such as people or vehicles in unusual locations.
