Botswana opts for intelligent video

Botswanian correctional facility uses video analytics to detect potential escapees.

Botswana’s Department of Correctional Services has installed ioimage video analytics at its First Offenders Correctional Facility in Gabarone, Botswana, to control the movement of prisoners and reduce the number of inmate incidents.

The prison, which measures 22 500 square-metres, needed a reliable and accurate perimeter protection solution that would integrate with the existing video management system. It also had to be easy to operate and capable of withstanding the region’s harsh weather conditions.

ioimage intelligent video was integrated into a 'double knock' detection system that also employs kinetic energy sensors. Since a convict would have to circumvent two security systems in order to escape, the probability of detection is high. The Botswanian government is currently planning further installations with ioimage intelligent video appliances at four other prisons.

“The project is a great success,” said Nick Grange, technical director of C3 Shared Services, the installer. “ioimage offered the ideal solution for this site. The system is extremely effective and simple to operate by staff with little or no hi-tech knowledge.”

“ioimage technology can be used to protect a wide range of installations,” said Greg Mendeleev, ioimage senior sales director, EMEA. “Not only do our solutions detect intruders engaged in theft, terrorism or vandalism, but they can also spot people attempting to illegally leave controlled areas.”
