PureTech Systems provides Perimeter Surveillance for Texas Water Utility

PureActivTM to provide intelligent video and command and control for multiple sites

PHOENIX, Ariz. -- PureTech Systems, specializing in wide-area video surveillance software, today announced two completed installations of its PureActiv system for a major undisclosed Texas water utility. The recent installations for perimeter protection were performed by Schneider Electric and include video analytics, thermal and visible light cameras, access control integration, mega-pixel cameras and the PureActiv geospatial (map-based) command and control.

For security reasons, the city cannot be disclosed. Their distribution system consists of treatment facilities, pump stations, reservoirs, elevated tanks and transmission lines. The utility serves multiple communities and its ability to maintain a secure water supply for its customers is critical to its mission. Integral to this is maintaining the integrity of its facilities’ perimeters, which was the objective of these installations.

“This was a major undertaking with many unique aspects,” explained Shawn Hanrahan, senior security account manager of Schneider Electric, the security integrator hired to perform the installations. “The PSIM needed to manage many sensor types, including thermal cameras, deterrent spot lights, Andover Continuum access control integration and video analytics. All this needed to be accomplished within the existing facility and landscaping. It was a significant undertaking, but everyone involved combined to make it a successful project.”

The system protecting the facilities includes the latest in surveillance technology. PureActiv’s map based command and control will provide the water department with user friendly situational awareness that allows the ability to control sensors and view intrusion details directly on the map. The installation also includes intelligent video analytic capabilities, providing both intruder detection and subsequent tracking. PureTech Systems’ President, Larry Bowe, said “We are delighted to have been selected to provide protection for these facilities. We have a long history in the protection of water resources, and we are glad we were able to apply our expertise to the protection of these facilities.” Both systems are now operational and have already been successful in detecting an actual intrusion shortly after being commissioned.
