Smarter Border Protection

Secure your border with smart monitoring of all incoming and outgoing people and assets.

Visionist Consulting

Today’s border agencies are being asked to process an ever-increasing flow of passengers and goods, often with a decreasing budget for their operations. The future of cross-border transport, travel and trade are dependent on the increased roll out and capability of smart, automated border control and large scale information systems. Smarter Technologies’ border security solutions use a range of devices to track movement and activity in real-time, enabling accurate and secure border control protocols.

Our border protection solutions include:

Wireless Passive Infrared Sensors (PIRs) – movement detection

Pressure Pads – movement over the area

Wireless Laser Beams – create beam barriers

Motion Sensor Tags – movement triggers

Solar Gateway Security Cameras – solar-powered, independent of an electrical power source

Infrared CCTV Cameras – work regardless of the lighting conditions

Facial Recognition Technology – capable of identifying or verifying a person from a digital image or a video frame

Country Borders

In increasingly globalised economies, it has become increasingly difficult to track and manage the migration of people and the movement of goods across borders. There’s a need for modern technology, such as the Orion Data Network, to ensure border protection and support the safe and efficient screening of people and goods entering specific zones. With an efficient automated border security system and real-time information relayed via the Orion Data Network, border control operatives are better equipped to make informed decisions about where to focus border security resources and maintain border integrity.

National Parks and Wildlife Areas

Securing the perimeters of national parks and wildlife areas to keep animals in and keep poachers out can be a daunting operation. These protected areas are often large in size and are found in remote locations, which means that coverage can be a challenge and securing the entire area can be cost-prohibitive for already-stretched conversation associations. Smarter Technologies’ Orion Data Network and associated hardware offer a cost-effective, robust solution that operates fully independently of power.
