Delta Electronics’ Pingzhen Plant in Taiwan houses valuable energy storage cabinets and related equipment. Protecting these assets in large-scale energy storage systems requires comprehensive, system-wide operation and meticulous monitoring. These assets, crucial to the company's business operations, are stored remotely and require vigilant protection. The company sought an efficient solution for instant intrusion detection and surveillance of suspicious behavior to secure its assets.
Delta Electronics’ energy storage systems, although indispensable, posed substantial security challenges. Energy storage cabinets are typically located in remote, sparsely populated areas or places with limited human and vehicular traffic. The isolation of these sites and the criticality of the equipment they house emphasized the need to address the potential for man-made damage and unlawful intrusion. Such incidents could result in substantial economic losses and pose serious risks to lives and property. This complex challenge called for a security solution capable of providing proactive and responsive security measures to counteract these potential threats.
The answer to Delta Electronics’ security challenge came in the form of VIVOTEK's VSaaS (cloud-based Video Surveillance as a Service) solution - VORTEX. This choice was driven by the following key features:
- AI-Powered Intrusion Detection and Real-Time Alarm: This advanced technology significantly reduces false alarms by distinguishing between genuine security threats and common triggers, such us stray animals or minor intrusions, by identifying individuals, vehicles, and other objects. This precision ensures that the system only alerts for real security breaches, enabling swift and effective responses to potential threats while minimizing unnecessary disruptions.
- Effortless Event Identification of Video Investigation: VIVOTEK's powerful investigation feature, Deep Search, enables operators to rapidly search through a precise footprint digest with moving-path capabilities. This eliminates the need for time-consuming video scanning when searching for specific targets among numerous images.
- Remote Access Anywhere and Stay Ahead: VORTEX offers remote access to camera diagnostics, enabling real-time troubleshooting and issue resolution. This remote capability significantly reduces downtime resulted from camera malfunctions, eliminating the need for on-site technician visit. With rapid development iteration, automated OTA updates also ensure future readiness with continuous delivery.
