To protect people from international crimes and prevent illegal immigration and smuggling, security is the top priority for harbor operation. With unexpectable outdoor conditions, the facilities of harbor like wharfs usually require surveillance that is vandal-resistant, weatherproof and can practically see in the dark. Moreover, harbor has huge space to cover, including parking lots and warehouses. The surveillance needs to achieve as close to full coverage of the entire open area as possible to improve the safety of personnel, truck traffic, loading procedures, and other activities. Therefore, IP surveillance solution has become particularly essential for the harbor applications.

Followings are some major challenges that you might face when designing a suitable surveillance system for harbors:


Harsh Outdoor Conditions

The harsh weathers and different kinds of lighting environments can be challenging for the cameras to be able to operation properly with clear images.


Remote Viewing

Due to the limited security guards and wide space to monitor, remote monitoring is required by most harbor applications.

Surveon Makes the Differences in Harbor Surveillance

Wide Area Monitor

Surveon outdoor speed dome cameras have 2048 x 1536 resolution at 30fps, 360° high-speed pan and tilt base, and 30x optical zoom lens, providing clear and wider images with high quality to allow security guards to recognize crucial details and protect people and assets from incidents such as thefts right away.


High Reliability & Low Light Performance

With IP67, vandal-resistant and weatherproof, Surveon cameras can handle harsh outdoor conditions, prevent any fail from dust, water and rust and still ensure video footage to be available in the environment of temperature from −40°C (−40°F) to 50°C (122°F) and 90%+ humidity. Moreover, its true WDR and low lux performance make sure every detail can be clearly seen, even under strong lighting contrast or dim night.


Real-time Video Analytics

Surveon VMS provides real-time video analytics such as Forbidden Area Detection and Virtual Fence to detect suspicious irruption for warehouses, offices and so on. Advanced electronic maps and expansion up to eight screens at the user-end can easily meet future demand growth, protecting the staff and goods from threats without delay.


CMS & Remote Monitoring

With client-server architecture and easy scalability, Surveon VMS allows multiple accesses from web, remote, and mobile clients, helping security guards to manage surveillance anywhere with efficiency and prevent the emergency such as thefts in time.
