  • Increased security level of buildings with reliable video analytics
  • Ensure coverage of the entire perimeter with 19 cameras, including 4 thermal cameras
  • Integrate with existing video management and intrusion systems for flexibility and control

Maximizing perimeter security

In early 2023, Kerakoll reached out to system integrator Elefondati because they needed to improve the security level of their site. They wanted to install a perimeter video surveillance system that would interact with anti-intrusion measures and promptly alert security personnel.

Elefondati collaborated with Bosch to conduct a site study, design a solution, and bring everything together. The solution combines 19 cameras with video analytics and easily integrates into the the intrusion security system and into the existing video management software from Arteco. The solution ensures complete coverage of the entire perimeter by linking video analysis rules with various types of behavior. Additionally, it provides flexible site management based on activity time slots and control of vehicles in transit.

Intelligent Video Analytics

Intelligent Video Analytics perimeter security

Intelligent Video Analytics makes early, reliable detection possible under challenging environmental and lighting conditions, even in extreme weather. By eliminating false triggers, video analytics allow security operators to focus on alarms that matter. Intelligent Video Analytics enables long-distance intrusion detection in extreme weather conditions, making it ideal for perimeter applications.

We have been very satisfied with the installed system, both in terms of performance and the technological solution found.

─ Andrea Giovanardi, Kerakoll IT Facility Management

A reliable solution

For Kerakoll, the solution proposed and implemented was the answer to its needs: the reliability of the video analysis and the integration of the technologies made it possible to satisfy the initial requirements, which had not been met by the previous systems installed. After a few months of operation and testing, Kerakoll is implementing the solution on its other sites.
