pv:protect relies on the state-of-the-art security and alarm system of the service partner Viasys GmbH.
For almost 10 years, Viasys has been active in the field of securing the open spaces of industrial and commercial customers by installing more than 7,500 alarm systems.
Based on this experience, the concept for the special protection of outdoor PV plants was implemented for pv:protect.
The high-end software technology and the combination of report and video technology of this highly advanced system reliably recognises all relevant events and passes them on to a connected alarm centre.
It is especially outdoors where these unique video sensors with additional, highly qualified image analysis software form the basis for reliable alerting.
As a result of this, the surveillance system permanently analyses the defined surroundings and accurately recognises relevant objects such as approaching persons or vehicles, for example. An alarm is triggered and all image data are stored and passed on to the emergency call centre.
Potential intruders are identified early on and the alarm is triggered at once. On-time reaction is possible to prevent damage. Thus, also preventing “blind alarms” and expensive faulty interventions.
