Trigion Proves Its Mettle at Scrap Yard
Trigion provides thermal imaging solution to protect valuable scrap metal
W
ith the value of scrap metal
only heading in one direction
recently, dealers are having
to turn to ever more advanced
security solutions to combat theft and
break ins. Security specialists Trigion
is now providing high-tech solutions
at a major Kent scrap yard, including
the use of thermal cameras and a
‘virtual perimeter’ system.
On a site such as a scrap metal yard,
there can be a lot of material on view and
it is not always easy to determine exactly
what is happening on a standard CCTV
camera. Thermal cameras make it clear
where a heat source is and when it
moves. They can also display an
electronic trail showing where movement
has taken place; making detection much
easier. In addition, by setting a virtual
perimeter on screen, specific areas can
be monitored more closely, and an alarm
triggered if someone enters it. This
perimeter can be altered remotely to
meet changing situations, such as the
arrival of a greater quantity of metal.
Neil Ricketts, Security & Technical
Services Director at Trigion, said: “With
scrap metal prices consistently rising
over the past year or two, dealers are
increasingly
being
targeted
by
unscrupulous elements intending to
cash in. We work with our customers to
design the best solution for their
individual needs. We’re not tied to any
supplier or manufacturer, so can ensure
the customer gets what they really need.
In the case of the scrapyard, the thermal
imaging gives a much clearer picture of
the situation, and staff at our remote
monitoring station can ensure the site is
secure at all times.”
