To solve the challenge, Sensorstream have developed a wide area sensor which can monitor large areas without costly infrastructure or expensive yearly monitoring costs. A multi sensor environment allows data to be gathered at many points within the park and also provide fine grain movement detection both for activity preference monitoring and unauthorised access alerting.
“When we heard about the Sensorstream sensors we were excited about the prospect of being able to see customer activity choice and preference without needing questionnaires” Pete explains.
Working with Freedome Sensorstream were able to come up with a deployment plan to install a number of sensors around the park which would capture movement.
The Sensorstream alerting system provides instant movement notifications for unauthorised access to restricted areas as well as comprehensive visitor activity reporting to show trends and graphs.
“The ability for us to define what constitutes an alert was impressive and also the fact that we can filter out unnecessary alerts. We know that when we get an alert someone is where they shouldn’t be and we can take immediate action”, said Pete.
The ease of installation of the sensors means they can be repositioned if a new area needs monitoring.
The temperature and humidity data, that each sensor provides, is also recorded and provides a detailed history of the climate within the building. By monitoring the computer and equipment room action can be taken if the temperatures are increasing due to warm weather etc.
When contractors are on site the sensors can also be used to provide movement and time information to make sure contractors are working in the areas required and also for the time agreed.
A secure monitored area can be created and alerts will be generated if anyone enters the area. This can be especially useful if there are a number of contractors working at the park.
