A large scale project requiring 22 self contained solar powered pole stations to cover 102,000 linear feet of fence, AISG installs the latest security technology comprised of video, access control, perimeter protection and remote monitoring at Garland Solar Generating Facility. Both communication and power are all provided by AISG at the edge eliminating trenching or the need for third parties to complete.
Located on approximately 2,000 acres in Kern County, CA, the facility consists of more than 800,000 polycrystalline photovoltaic solar modules. Access is controlled at the site via an Aiphone IP video intercom and locked gates at multiple points of site ingress/egress. High resolution IP video surveillance utilizes Davantis video analytics and Wavestore video storage and management, integrated with environmental Flir thermal and Axis day/night infrared IP cameras installed throughout the facility on solar powered poles with industrial network switches and wireless adapters for complete perimeter coverage. In addition AISG is using strobe/sirens at each pole to pin-point and guide the authorities upon events.
