Effective Multi-Unit Deployment

Most surveillance applications call for more than just one pole with cameras.  Deploying multiple units on a single job is simpe with a skid. The additional coverage and flexibility gained by having more than one solar surveillance skid, is a no-brainer.

You will need to either arrange for lift equipment to be available onsite or rent it ahead of time, but depending on how many units are deployed, and how far away the jobsite is the savings in time and resources can be enormous. Deployments are a breeze with the Surveillance Skid platform.

Thermal Imaging Safety Systems

A thermal imaging “Early Warning System” can save tens of thousands of dollars and the lives of Gas & Oil workers. Intelligent thermal cameras pointed at well-heads are configured to trigger an alarm when temperatures rise past a specified threshold. This early warning is often enough, coupled with a quick reaction, to prevent an emergency.

Additional IP cameras can be connected to the same system to monitor safety conditions on-site and provide an added layer of security. The Micro-Skid platform makes deployment and re-location quick & simple. Get in touch with us and let our qualified team help you design a Gas & Oil safety and security system for your next site!

Prevent Theft and Vandalism

An “Active Deterrence System” helps stop crimes before they even happen. Motion activated lights, sirens, and a 2-way audio set-up show trespassers that they are on camera and that the immediate threat of capture is very real. Often this means moving onto a less protected location. Locking down your customer’s site couldn’t be easier than with a rapid deploy Micro-Skid, especially when that site is temporary and/or fluid!

Whether you have your own go-to camera and wireless equipment brands, or you need a little push in the right direction, our qualified sales team can find a solution for your next job. Get in touch today!
