To achieve the company’s goals, Hannah needs to maintain efficient operations in the factory. To keep production lines running smoothly, operators must keep an eye on certain elements, such as, for example, conveyor belts. Although the process is automated, conveyers still require an operator to make sure they are working correctly. If the operator gets distracted or leaves their post, the belt could fail, leading to operation disruption or injury. But today’s technology can help here.
By using an intelligent Automated Event Alert feature, the CCTV system can detect potential hazards with belt operators, as well as any other critical position. Issues such as unexpected absences will be detected and the system will generate an automatic alert.
Another challenge for Hannah involves making sure all vehicles arriving, departing, and moving around the factory grounds are in the right place at the right time. This includes delivery trucks as well as employee and visitor cars. ANPR (automatic number plate recognition) technology at a vehicle gate can make sure unauthorized vehicles cannot enter. Hannah can also add regular suppliers, for example, to the authorized list for automated entry and other features.
But that’s not all. Carelessly parked vehicles, or one that’s in a restricted area, can cause blocking and even accidents. This could even cause injury or worse, if for example the vehicle is blocking a fire exit. A PTZ camera can implement Illegal Parking Detection to prevent such hazards – detecting and reporting illegal parking in real time.
Hannah fears that any one of her employees might be seriously injured in the factory, so she has implemented various safety processes to prevent this. Personal protective equipment is required throughout the factory. Hard hats, for example, save lives and are mandatory in some areas. But what if people forget or simply do not comply with the rules? Hard Hat Detection technology, based on Deep Learning, enables security cameras to distinguish whether or not individuals are wearing hard hats where it’s necessary and generate automated alerts when a violation is detected.
Of course, security is always going to be on Hannah’s mind. Perimeter Protection technology, equipped with Deep Learning technology, detects activity all around her property 24/7 and can be configured to dramatically reduce false alarms.
