Electrical Grid Networks, Distribution Lines, and Power Generation Stations - often unmanned and located away from heavily populated areas - are easy targets for vandalism and terrorism if not properly protected.
A layered approach to critical infrastructure security is recommended. Surveillance is key both inside facilities - to monitor equipment; and also looking outward, “beyond the fence” - to monitor oncoming threats. Thermal, High Definition (HD) and Illumination/Spot Lighting technology allow security personnel to monitor outer perimeters and detect obscure activity, in advance. Camera lowering devices offer a true birds eye view with a convenient camera maintenance solution for cameras mounted up to 80 feet.
