Axis Wins Life Saving Award For SA Coastal Safety Camera Network.
Axis Wins Life Saving Award – Axis Communications has won an award for collaborative efforts between Axis and security integrator BST to support Surf Life Saving South Australia (SLSSA) in implementing a Coastal Safety Camera Network.
Organised by the Swedish Australian Chamber of Commerce, the event celebrates the outstanding achievements of companies that are spearheading innovation, sustainability, entrepreneurship, partnership, collaboration, and social impact in Australia.
The implementation of the Coastal Safety Camera Network helped improve the safety and well-being of the local community in South Australia, more important than ever during the busy period over Christmas and summer in Australia, with the first 5 cameras deployed at Glenelg SLSC, Henley SLSC, Moana SLSC, Port Elliot SLSC, and Goolwa SLSC.
This safety camera network aids in early detection of persons in difficulty and can provide real-time updates from the SLSSA’s state operations centre to beach patrol teams. Using PTZs, the technology has already proven invaluable – earlier this year it enabled the timely dispatch of additional resources to aid in a rescue that saved 5 lives – 4 from the same family and one bystander. Without the cameras in place, lifesavers on the beach would not have had sight of those in danger.
“This recognition marks our dedication to effecting positive and sustainable transformation for Surf Life Saving in South Australia,” said Damien Marangon, SLSSA CEO.
“Our commitment to safeguarding our community has already produced life-saving outcomes, and we’ll continue deploying the technology this summer season to further protect our beachgoers.”

Axis regional director Oceania, Wai King Wong said the collaboration highlights the power of technology and demonstrates the effectiveness of public and private partnerships in addressing important societal challenges.
“We’re pleased with the commendable outcomes we’ve been able to achieve so far with the collaborative efforts of BST, and look forward to witnessing the continued expansion and impact of this program not only in South Australia, but other regions as well,” Wong said.
