So-called ‘cable crime’ is reaching astronomic levels; to help prevent and detect such crime, security specialists Secupre have introduced GSM/GPRS wireless monitoring system specifically designed for this application.
Energy, rail, telecom, irrigation and mining industries have all become highly vulnerable to a copper crime wave fuelled by the soaring price of all scrap metals which has seen copper prices alone more than triple since few years ago.
Police say incidents of cable thefts from railways, Energy, telecom andirrigation have seen a dramatic increase in the last 3 years with the cost of replacing the stolen cables, whilst the electricity and telecom industry put the figure at much more than other industries. To combat this rising tide of ‘cable crime’, security specialists Secupro have introduced GSM/GPRS wirless monitoring/controlling system,
For locations like Energy, telecom, irrigation, mining quarries and railway engineering works it is not always practical to install permanent CCTV or cost-effective to have 24-hour manned guarding. But these are the very same locations where cable is stored (or simply left lying around) while work is in progress, making them highly vulnerable to theft.
We introduced the new GSM/GPRS wirless monitoring/controlling system in response to the significant increase in enquiries from organisations up and down the territory that have now experienced theft of copper cable and other metal-based raw materials from criminals that want to cash in on their high scrap value.
“GSM/GPRS wirless monitoring/controlling system functions is exactly the same way as conventional CCTV but without the need for cabling. In most cases it can be integrated with our other wireless systems to further enhance the deterrent and detection effect.
“Being wireless, the system is much quicker, easier and simpler to install; no PSTN phone lines are required and it can be redeployed in any new location giving major reductions in overall security costs.
“Apart from the known deterrent effect of GSM/GPRS wirless monitoring/controlling system, we can back the installation up with our 24-hour central monitoring service which means we can react instantly to any incident, alerting on-site security, mobile patrols or the police”.
