Like airports, harbours are vital cogs in the wheel that makes up the South African economy. With infrastructure always developing around these key points of business that the country is so reliant on, security and safety become paramount to more than just these operations themselves, but to the country as a whole. With various security threats encroaching on local harbours, staying ahead of the game requires more than adequate preparation. This precious industry demands guaranteed safety – a promise that only technologically advanced security solutions can deliver on today.
With powerful surveillance equipment and other security measures, harbours can mitigate the threat potential from various kinds of danger. The looming peril of sabotage will always be a danger that large-scale operations must contend with, but with advanced video analytic capabilities, threats can be identified and responded to faster than ever.
Although harbour fires are rare the world over, they’re not entirely unheard of – in fact, even South Africa has encountered this menace before. With a varied list of possible causes, fires can severely cripple any type of harbour. The only way to effectively manage this risk is then to be prepared for the eventuality of a fire, which means having the on-site functionality to locate fire origins with speed and accuracy – another set of capabilities made possible by modern advanced security tech.
Investing in a must-have set of security measures that’ll protect your operation from physical danger of any kind is still an imperative investment to make.

With monorail-mounted surveillance robots, RoboGuard can double the surveillance potential of your perimeter by monitoring its integrity and by visiting breach sites to gather additional information.
CCTV or Closed Circuit Television refers to a visible or covert video system intended for only a limited number of viewers. In Closed Circuit TV (CCTV), the picture is viewed or recorded, but not broadcast. It was initially developed as a means of security for banks and casinos; however, today it has been developed to the point where it is simple and inexpensive enough even to be used with home security systems, and for everyday surveillance.Read more...
IP surveillance is a digitized and networked version of closed-circuit television (CCTV). In an IP surveillance system, an IP camera records video footage and the resulting content is distributed over an IP (Internet protocol) network.
C3 can provide you with an analogue or IP surveillance system designed to suit your unique requirements.
C3 can design and install your custom made control room, complete with a highly skilled control room operator and easy to use video management software. Due to the long life span of a control room and the fact that it is an integral part of the security system, C3 pays special attention to its design. Often the control room is seen as a place where technical equipment is installed rather than a site where people work to bring together all the information and realise the value of the technology.Read more...
Many factors have to be taken into consideration when designing a control room such as space, lighting, aesthetics, airflow, ergonomics and of course, functionality. What is visually impressive is not necessarily the most effective. The best-designed control rooms are often those where the most thought has gone into what needs to be accomplished in the control room.
The LIOS DE.TECT also adheres to today’s strict safety conventions and standards, providing high-proven product quality based on the fulfilment of criteria recognised by a variety of authoritative regulatory bodies. These include:
• VdS (Association of German Property Insurers)
• prEN 54-22 Class A1N
• ISO 9001 and ISO 14001
• TÜV Rheinland
• CE (Electromagnetic Compliance, Europe)
• UL 521, ULC S530 spacing up to 50ft
• ATEX certification
Combined with powerful monitoring and visualisation software, data can easily be presented and interpreted. With versatility in its customisation capabilities, this device can be set up for various unique ends, including monitoring activity in deluge zones, as well as in more secluded sections of a facility, for example.
With six key capabilities, management of an entire enterprise can be tackled on one comprehensive user interface that can quickly and cost-effectively be customised to meet the exact requirements of every user for any company.
By ordering the massive influx of data received from various security channels like CCTV, for example, PSIM can arrive at accurate visualisations and reports with the aim to detect, visualise and resolve threats according to specific criteria established for your custom interface.
At C3, we are at the coalface of PSIM, connecting systems and other platforms in a cohesive, effective way to enhance security across a broad spectrum, and thereby increase productivity.

C3 are the experts in thermal surveillance for intrusion detection. We combine our thermal cameras with intelligent video analytics, allowing for instant visual verification of the exact cause and the location of any perimeter breach, day or night. The benefits of thermal cameras over conventional CCD cameras are numerous.Read more...
Let's take a look at a few of the advantages:
- • Visible image day and night in total darkness without the need for any ambient light
- • Visual penetration through rain / mist / fog far greater than CCD
- • Low maintenance - does not require cleaning of optics
- • Direct or reflective light shining into the camera lens does not affect picture image
- • Thermal cameras combined with video analytics can detect intruders at greater distances than CCD's and therefore far fewer cameras are needed. This is far more aesthetically pleasing especially in residential estates.
- • Power consumption is considerably less when compared to CCD cameras combined with IR illuminators.
- • Thermal cameras do not work off visible light but rather infrared light (heat / radiation) therefore the cameras can still detect intruders that are dressed in dark or camouflaged clothing.
- • Thermal cameras are considered leading-edge technology. Intruders in total darkness are not aware of the camera's capabilities and might believe they are moving through the field of view undetected.
A well-constructed fence in most cases is the first line of defense on any perimeter and it's construction should be of high quality materials and good design. There are many innovative designs on the market such as 'anti-cut and anti-climb' fencing, 'invisible fencing', electric fencing, intelligent fencing, etc.Read more...
C3 can offer a host award-winning fencing innovations to protect your perimeter and integrate effectively with your perimeter security system.
Under Vehicle Inspection Systems (UVIS) are designed to provide a security solution for inspecting the chassis part of a vehicle. The chassis is very vulnerable and objects hidden in this area can include explosives, drugs, merchandise and even the smuggling of human beings across borders or out of prison facilities.Read more ...
The versatile view angle allows the user to verify from multiple angles the suspicious threat before actually having to physically reach the subject. In the case of bomb squad technicians, being able to examine the object from a distance before having to physically deal with it could make the difference of life and death, as well as save the inconvenience of false alarms.
All data from the system can be recorded to the local DVR system for training and investigation uses. The data can be tied to a LPR system for better documentation.
A Perimeter Intruder Detection System (PIDS) is usually installed in an outdoor environment at the perimeter limits or around sensitive, high-risk areas. The system is designed to detect, deter, and delay an intruder which provides critical time for security teams to respond to any unauthorised intrusion.Read more...
The strategic application of external intruder detectors can provide significant cost savings in terms of manpower, loss recovery and damage limitation, quickly recovering the initial capital outlay.
However, it is more difficult than designing systems for the controlled environment found inside most premises as we need to have a system that not only suits the type of perimeter but also one that can perform equally well in all extremes of weather conditions.
Access control, CCTV, intelligent video, etc.. all form part of the PIDS as well as invisible buried detection systems, fence security using microphonic and fibre optic cable, microwave barriers and Doppler detectors, infrared systems using beams and barriers, taut wire and fibre optic detection systems. All these can significantly enhance the performance of any perimeter security. C3 can provide innovative and effective solutions to combat all forms of perimeter intrusion.
