VPS’ SmartTower CCTV wins US Government Security ‘Platimun’ Award

6 Jun 2014

SmartTower CCTV selected for the Government Security Platinum Award for Perimeter Security by Security Products magazine, alongside technology giants and other ‘Govie’ winners Samsung, Honeywell Security and BlackBerry.

We are delighted to announce that the SmartTower CCTV, designed by VPShas won a US Security Products award - the Government Security Award for Perimeter Security, also known as ‘The Govies’. The award was entered with one of our partners B&B Electronics. SmartTower CCTV is a protection and monitoring system that can be installed in any location, no matter how remote or challenging.

A panel of judges from the security industry selected the top entries in the 2014 categories and named the winners using criteria including features, innovation, user friendliness, interoperability, quality, design, and technical advances.

SmartTower CCTV is a cost-effective alternative to employing security officers in remote, vulnerable or temporary environments such as construction sites and vacant properties, and can operate with limited power and no landline communications, protecting a site even before core utilities are available.

The award was jointly received by B&B Electronics who worked with us to develop the high-reliability cellular wireless communication and monitoring system. It enables users to install the SmartTower CCTV anywhere, wirelessly connect it to a remote control centre, and transmit high-bandwidth streaming video and CCTV images over high speed cellular infrastructures in the UK, USA and across Europe.

The rapidly deployable towers enhance existing perimeter protection with a multi-layered solution comprising a 96db siren to warn intruders, infra-red and white light for areas prone to vandalism, 30x zoom to see even the most isolated areas, Voice-Over-IP for real-time communication, and wireless connectivity for installation anywhere.

VPS Site Security’s SmartTower CCTV combines an alloy sub frame and an extruded alloy pneumatic mast, extendable up to 7m, which allows it to be deployed in any terrain. The top of the tower houses a high-end, wireless PTZ camera, with on-board storage capacity of up to 64GB. As it can be powered by AC power, wind, solar or hydrogen fuel cell, the SmartTower can operate for up to three months continuously without recharging, making it ideal for construction sites, utilities, and critical infrastructure.
