Prime Secure has launched the UK’s first 100% eco-powered CCTV tower which operates solely on solar energy and wind power, while offering 360° coverage and 24/7 recording without the need for batteries, generators, or harsh chemicals such as methanol.
Prime Secure is a Glasgow-based family-run company which has been providing security services and personnel throughout the UK for the construction, corporate and void property sectors for over 25 years.
The first of its kind on the market, the new Eco CCTV Tower offers 360° coverage along with 24/7 recording without the need for batteries, generators, or harsh chemicals such as methanol.
With an integrated wind turbine and solar panels, the Eco CCTV Tower offers a range of state-of-the-art A.I. features such as Area Intrusion Detection and Virtual Tripwires for construction firms. The towers map out ‘no go zones’ – allowing high-levels of protection for all areas of a development, regardless of whether the building site has access to power.
It also uses facial recognition technology to ensure only authorised personnel can enter a site and smart motion detection which uses advanced algorithms to differentiate between human and vehicular shapes, to send alarms only when a person or vehicle is detected.
The technology boasts high levels of accuracy using False Alarm Detection which filters out alerts triggered by the movement of animals, rustling leaves, bright lights, or adverse weather.
Additional upgrades can also be tailored to the user such as Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR), Time Lapse, Thermal Imaging and Advanced Image Searches.
Robert Dempster, Director at Prime Secure said: “Our years of experience in the security sector means we’re often the first choice for the country’s leading construction companies and property managers, along with a number of corporate and retail clients.
“Building on the success of our A.I. CCTV tower, the new Eco CCTV tower offers all of the same features but is 100% eco-powered through wind and solar energy.
“Currently, no other system offers this range of features, which makes the launch of the tower an industry first.”
Kevin McDaid, Operations Director, continued: “After careful development to ensure the product delivered on performance, we’re pleased to launch the Eco CCTV tower to market.
“During the research and development process we saw rival systems enter the market, yet none were 100% eco-powered or could be installed at the same speed in remote or off-grid locations. Some systems call themselves solar towers but still require other fuel sources, such as batteries or accompanying fuel and attendance charges.
“We’re proud to be able to launch a product that is 100% eco-powered, uses A.I technology and yet still doesn’t comprise on quality and performance. The surge in demand we’ve experienced already for the product really is a testament to its quality.”
