Solar based autonomous video surveillance with number recognition,
mobile or fixed, security A-Z – a generational change

The TheSmartFoX video surveillance system can be used as a mobile or fixed surveillance system. The focus is on the functionality, consistency and coordination of the individual components (camera, communication, software, maintenance). In the mobile version, the device is completely autonomous. It does not require electricity or a wired internet connection. If desired, the system can be supplied with an additional infrared spotlight to capture clear images even at night.

In practical use

Monitoring of an access road in the canton of Zurich to a local recreation area. Wireless, solar-based video surveillance system with automatic transmission of images to a central server and recognition of license plates with subsequent automatic comparison of authorized vehicles.

Optional – monitoring via smartphone

You can view and access live images (up to Full HD 1920×1080) and recorded video recordings from the surveillance location using your smartphone at any time. In addition, the system not only triggers the camera’s video recording through integrated image analysis, but also informs and alerts you automatically within seconds via SMS or email. With this immediate alarm notification and direct access to the central web server, you are always informed about all incidents and able to trigger the necessary interventions. Monitoring and alerting can also be carried out directly via a contracted security company.

TheSmartFoX is modular and can be integrated into existing alarm systems or building technology, e.g. for interactive control of other devices and systems.

Areas of application

Mobile and fixed

TheSmartFoX is used wherever sophisticated object monitoring or video image transmission needs to take place. Areas of application include: monitoring of access routes, disposal points, commercial buildings, offices, house entrances, driveways, parking lots, garages, valuable objects, construction sites/containers. TheSmartFoX can be integrated into existing building technology and alarm systems

Security of transmitted images

The cameras can be used so that they only switch on and record when there is effective movement. No matter whether day or night. In impressive image quality, the data is immediately transmitted to the IMM (Inderactive Mobile Monitoring) video server, transcoded and stored on an external web server. Double security: all saved recordings can be kept for as long as required and viewed again later.
