Videofied is recognized by Homeland Security as an affordable means of securing critical infrastructure (see CIP report by George Mason University). Because the entire system can operate for years on batteries and communicate over the cell network, it is easy to deploy, even in remote installations and harsh environments.
Videofied is used to protect remote well heads and the Christmas tree valves that are an easy target for thieves. Because it is portable, it is ideal for short term protection during turn-arounds in refineries and chemical plants – whether it is for routine maintenance or construction. Magnetic mount mean easy placement and reconfiguration of the cameras as needs evolve. Videofied has been involved with the Energy Security Council and is an effective and affordable enhancement to human guards and high-end video surveillance systems. The battery powered MotionViewers act as remote “sentries” to the guards and high resolution pan/tilt/zoom cameras used by the facility.
Videofied has proven an effective outer layer of protection for critical facilities in remote areas and provide security against thieves targeting the assets as well as environmental activists intent on vandalizing property.
