DECHO Applies Solar Protection

♦ DECHO Applies Solar Protection – NZ company DECHO has deployed Hikvision’s solar-powered solution to protect its Coast Garden project in Auckland, as building material shortages and rising prices fuel a rise in construction site thefts.

DECHO Group is one of Auckland’s most innovative and respected land developers, serving civil infrastructure, industrial and building markets. DECHO’s newly launched Coast Garden project is a new, premium development under construction in the sought-after Hobsonville Peninsula locale. The exclusive Coast Garden development is a new 4.3-hectare subdivision delivering exceptional waterfront living on an elevated clifftop site on the peninsula.

“We need a security solution to protect our high-value items such as machinery, tools, copper, and other building materials,” director of DECHO, Ning Zhao, said.

“Our projects don’t get completed overnight. It can take months and years to execute a single project. The construction sites endure all kinds of weather, power issues, security problems, and many other challenges. We needed a solution that boosts security quickly and easily with simple installation that’s suited for deployment in any kind of outdoor environment, without the need for a fixed network or power supply.”

DECHO researched several options, and deployed Hikvision’s solar-powered security camera setup. Hikvision’s EXIR fixed bullet solar 4G network cameras and 4K ColorVu fixed bullet solar 4G network camera kits were placed around the perimeter of DECHO’s Coast Garden construction site.

The solar-powered security camera setup uses a 40W photovoltaic panel and a highly durable 20Ah rechargeable lithium battery to power a Hikvision EXIR fixed bullet solar power 4G network camera. Because the setup gets power from the sun, there is no need for fixed power or network cables on site. With the product’s smart power management features, each setup can provide up to 7 days of operation during cloudy or rainy periods when fully charged. Its 4G camera further adds a 32 GB eMMC (embedded MultiMediaCard) in addition to an SD memory card, this ensures continuous video recording even if there is an interruption with the SD card.

The solar powered cameras come equipped with Hikvision’s ColorVu and AcuSense technologies. ColorVu technology gives cameras the ability to produce high-quality, full-color images in low-light conditions. With AcuSense technology, AI-powered perimeter protection enables target classification based on deep learning. If the perimeter is breached by a person or vehicle, the cameras can automatically push event-triggered notifications to users’ mobile devices.

According Zhao, the fact that the Hikvision solar-powered cameras can be installed hassle-free was a key feature for the company. The pole-mounted unit weighs just 14 kg (30 lbs), and no wires or cabling are required, making the deployment process fast, easy, and cost-effective.

“With its own power source, each Hikvision camera can be deployed anywhere on the site without having to route cables, saving valuable time and resources, which could be redirected to other critical tasks to help the company complete construction on time,” Zhao said.

Empowered by ColorVu technology, the cameras perform well in dark environments.

“Construction site compounds are most vulnerable to theft at night,” commented Ning Zhao, “With these cameras installed, our valuables are now well protected during vulnerable out-of-hours periods.”

As the AcuSense technology embedded in the cameras helps to differentiate between humans and other moving objects such as animals, falling leaves, or heavy rain, false positives are minimized, and DECHO is only be alerted in the event of real security threats. In addition, being waterproof and dust-resistant, the solar power cameras are suitable for deployment in any kind of outdoor environment.

“These cameras are sturdy enough to withstand the harsh conditions on the construction site, as well as Auckland’s frequent rainy and windy weather,” said Ning Zhao.

The self-contained setup operates for up to 7 days on a single battery charge, which delivers significant cost savings for DECHO. In addition, powered by clean and renewable energy, the solar cameras not only help to save operational costs for the building firm, but also reduce the company’s carbon footprint.

“We are working hard to build a green culture within DECHO,” said Zhao. “Deploying a solar-powered wireless camera system represents an opportunity to have an immediate positive impact on sustainability.”
