Keeping business premises and assets safe from harm is an ongoing and evolving challenge. Today, breaches can come in all kinds of forms, and can be destructive in all kinds of different ways. One breach, however, has never changed and is as random and as devastating as any; fire.
The vehicles of today are at risk. Government reports show that road traffic accidents are on the increase whilst the threat of criminal damage and theft remains high. For those organisations whose existence depends on a functioning fleet of vehicles, reliable transport surveillance has become something of an essential.
Though demand continues to grow for vehicle surveillance technology, much of the hardware the market provides is ill-equipped to deal with the harsh realities of Britain’s roads. Fragile apparatus is easily damaged by repetitive shocks and sudden jolts leading to costly repairs and, sometimes, wholesale replacements. It’s expensive, inconvenient, and leaves your vehicles exposed.
A key component amongst the NetVu suite of technologies is TransVu, a state-of-the-art vehicle surveillance system which stands out in a crowded market because, not only is it sophisticated, it’s tough. The rugged external chassis has been stress-tested to cope with the regular turbulence that comes with high mileage.
The resilient chassis is quite remarkable on its own, but it’s what sits within this robust exterior which really impresses. TransVu users benefit from an ultra-modern, patented technology replete with the usual alarm and audio-recording features, but that’s just the start. Also included are solutions specific to the TransVu solution such as GPS-powered location tracking, a synergised accelerometer, integration with vehicle power management, and a driver panic button.
Together, this durable, ergonomic casing and innovative, patented technology mean the TransVu solution provides reliable, long-lasting, future-proofed surveillance ensuring your vehicles are monitored by an unmatched level of security.
Anything from faulty wiring, to over-heating machinery, to negligent or malicious acts can spark an ignition.
Within just 30 seconds of a flame igniting a situation can have spiralled out of control. At three minutes from origin, toxic smoke has usually rendered visibility to zero whilst temperatures rage towards 300ºC. Five minutes from the initial event the heat is so intense that other items in the vicinity begin to ignite. At this point, rescuing those trapped becomes a near impossible task.
Critical to saving lives and business assets from the devastating destructive power of fire, is immediate detection. FireVu Video Fire Detection technology is a leading-edge solution for detection, identification, and smoke-analysis at the very start of a fire.
The technology is also able detect anomalies alternative solutions would fail to. Phenomena such as reflections and lighting effects can mimic the behaviour of smoke with sufficient accuracy to trigger many smoke detection systems. The FireVu VFD system is able to differentiate between such phenomena and real smoke, greatly reducing false alarms.
Further still, the highly advanced yet user-friendly FireVu platform enables operators to immediately raise an alarm and take appropriate action whether they are on-site or monitoring the situation remotely.
Initially devised to meet the requirement for a fire detection solution in a large power station facility, FireVu’s VFD is an ultra-intelligent apparatus which understands and analyses the behaviour and movement of smoke with breath-taking accuracy. It also has a security provision which can be combined with a business’ existing systems.
Such is the level of innovation and reliability of the FireVu solution that it is currently used on more than 200 sites globally.
Amongst the sites where FireVu silently and methodically monitors the environment are power stations, manufacturing plants, high-traffic tunnels, and aircraft hangars. Sites where immediate detection of fire is critical to saving human life and high-value assets.
Fire destroys businesses and destroys lives and it often starts when no-one’s watching, but with FireVu VFD installed on your premises, something always is.
