Per Mar partners with iDter to deploy active deterrence cameras

DAVENPORT, Ia., and SAN MATEO, Calif. —Per Mar Security Services has crafted a highly effective and efficient outdoor asset protection solution for its customers in partnership with commercial security solution provider iDter Systems.

Per Mar is deploying iDter’s Nio Guardians with artificial intelligence (AI) and active intrusion detection to stop trespassing, theft and liability claims at construction and equipment sites.

Intelligent video monitoring stops intruders

iDterTheft and damage of heavy equipment continues to ramp up. The National Equipment Register reports that dealerships, work sites and storage facilities are the top three targeted locations for thieves. Per Mar partnered with iDter to ramp up protection for its construction and heavy equipment customers that require a solution to late-night trespassers who engage in theft and vandalism and create potential liability on project properties.

Per Mar offers the construction industry a cost-effective rental solution that’s easily installed and connects quickly via cellular internet. In the Per Mar application, Niō Guardians are integrated with cellular modems for their security rental program. These self-contained units are affixed on poles and stanchions in strategic areas of the construction site, powered by temporary runs of 120 VAC.

Nicholas Luciano, integrated security solutions manager at Per Mar, said the system detects and takes active deterrence actions to confront trespassers and thieves who target high-value machinery such as tractors, loaders, and cranes as well as tools and materials stored in construction trailers.

“The system is highly effective in automatically deterring intruders and is easy to install,” Luciano noted. “By integrating cellular with Niō Guardian, we can install three or four units in a matter of hours. It’s simple to relocate and includes live monitoring with dispatch of either the police or our security guards.”

Luciano says customers have total site visibility and intrusion detection with real-time notification to smartphones, email, or other direct messaging.

“Construction superintendents can see what has happened at night and when people leave the premises. They can control the schedule of deterrence actions and other system settings. Most importantly, they receive notifications of an active event on their mobile device with a wide-angle view of the trespasser and the ability to talk to the person, dispatch authorities or initiate additional deterrence sequences.”

How iDter works

iDter’s Niō Guardian and Protector technology features AI deep-learning and infrared night vision. It detects in real-time and is proven to foil more than 98 percent of intrusions within seconds and without delays or costs from human intervention. iDter products are fully NDAA compliant, ETL listed, FCC certified and carry an IP-65 environmental rating.

Niō Guardian nodes are positioned around the protected premises to detect intrusion with a powerful high-resolution camera with wide-angle lens, multiple motion detectors, omni-directional microphone, and quad-core intelligence. Niō nodes deter with a rich set of immediate responses: the instantaneous illumination of 10,000 lumens of multi-directional LED floodlights, blinding strobes of red and blue LEDs, 120 dB piercing sirens, situation-appropriate voice-down warning messages and intimidating sound effects.

Intrusion events are detected and immediately verified with video alert recordings sent to the user’s iPhone, Android, or iPad. Events are monitored in real time to ensure deterrence actions were successful, and if not, a video verified alarm is sent for dispatch of authorities through 911 operators.
