State-of-the-art Technology


The backbone of the concept is the proven video alarm technology from pv:protect, which is based on highly advanced video sensor technology that enables extremely precise, motion-activated alarm triggering by detecting relevant incidents in outdoor areas. This lets pv:protect guarantee maximum security and reliability by offering a hazard detection system that goes above and beyond any previously known standards.

The superiority of this technology as compared to standard solutions is especially demonstrated by the fact that it prevents false alarms to the greatest extent possible by reliably detecting and “sorting out” the various sources. In combination with a professional local emergency call/control centre, this approach ensures total security.

In particular, preventing false alarms also prevents unnecessary additional costs.

The special benefit: The pv:protect video alarm system reports the incident before anything happens!

Intelligent video sensor technology

pv:protect uses the efficient, high-performance security technology from our partner Viasys Intelligent Video GmbH.

For more than 12 years, Viasys has been protecting outdoor areas for industrial and commercial clients, with an installation base of over 15,000 alarm systems in use.

This experience was utilised as a foundation for implementing the concept for the special protection of PV outdoor plants for pv:protect.

Through the use of high-end software technology and the combination of reporting system and video technology, this highly advanced system reliably detects all relevant incidents and reports them to a connected alarm control centre.

In outdoor areas in particular, this unique image analysis software is the basis for dependable alarm triggering.

The monitoring system continuously analyses the defined surroundings and precisely detects relevant objects, such as approaching individuals or vehicles. In such a case, an alarm is triggered, all image data are stored and forwarded to the emergency call centre.

Consequently, potential intruders are identified early on, immediately triggering the alarm. This enables rapid response in order to prevent damage, and avoids false alarms and costly unnecessary interventions.
