For Utilities, Correctional Facilities, Airports, & other critical applications

Securing critical gate stations, electric substations, gas and oil pipelines, and other critical infrastructure increasingly means more than just security cameras. From 2011 to 2014, there were 362 physical and cyber attacks on power grids in the US. Only 14 of those were cyber, which leaves 348 physical attacks in three years. Even very small utilities are being targeted. Integrating the AVT234 Video Motion detection Server into a security arsenal could prevent attacks by automatically detecting unusual outdoor activity on video feeds and alerting even before the naked eye can see a problem. AVT234 is a proven technology installed at multiple utility substations, with the capability to detect and alert on hundreds of camera feeds, dramatically improving detection and apprehension of attackers.

The EventGuard Video Motion Detection (VMD) Server, powered by the AVT234© software engine, is a server-based unattended outdoor video surveillance sensor for unattended video motion detection and assessment of perimeters in outdoor settings. With a tested detection rate of up to 99% accuracy outdoors and almost zero false alarms, the EventGuard VMD Server is a cost-effective add-on to existing security systems. Its complex algorithm processing lets the AVT234© software engine "learn on the fly" to ignore natural outdoor scene changes like snow, sun glints, and leaves blowing, dramatically reducing false and nuisance alarms and detection accuracy.

A mature, focused and field-proven perimeter protection technology, each EventGuard VMD Server automatically generates intrusion video alarms locally, remotely, and via email, to enable immediate visual assessment and rapid response.

In addition to perimeter monitoring for critical infrastructure protection (CIP), the EventGuard VMD can be setup to run pipeline damage protection to detect unauthorized or malicious digging activity on a pipeline right-of-way (ROW). A single EventGuard VMD server can run both AVT234 Video Motion Detection and AGAS Damage Prevention on one unit, for a cost-effective multi-use solution.

The EvendGuard VMD server can be purchased for a new install or integrated with existing security systems and can integrate with analog or IP cameras, and has passed multiple NERC/CIP audits.
