Security For Public Spaces And Facilities – City Council Skate Park Case Study

Sep 2, 2019

The Challenge

This Skate Board Park run by Napier City Council at a beach location and close to a residential area of Hawkes Bay was plagued with vandalism and unauthorised entry after normal operating hours. Hence, the skate park was in need of a smart perimeter security solution.

The Solution

Our distributors in New Zealand, Eastek, were commissioned to eradicate this problem by enhancing the detection capability of the existing perimeter.  Eastek provides Specialist Security Integration and Monitoring Services for clients to highly refined specifications.  As part of the solution, which includes a range of imaging devices and audio warning functions, Eastek installed a HALO system primarily to detect movement within the park activity zone.

The Outcome

Since the installation HALO is regularly triggering intrusions with the culprits caught on camera and subsequently identified (and in most cases warned by the local authorities). With the set-up, HALO activates Eastek‘s cameras and lighting system with a control announcement saying “your entry is unauthorised, please leave immediately”. This usually has the desired effect. To date there have been no false alarms and even through recent Cyclone “Debbie” the system was very stable. There was one alarm during the storm which was thought was due to the high winds but this turned out to be an unauthorised entry when the images were subsequently analysed.

If you think there’s a “slight chance” HALO can save your site from malicious intruders, you should sign up for installation today.

You can try HALO and see if it’s right for your site over the next 90 days. No guess work needed. Use the system and see for yourself.

If it isn’t right for you, email us at [email protected] within 90 days of installation and we’ll uninstall the system and give you a prompt refund, no questions asked.
