Local Government SafetyEffective Results

The GPAC System™ solution installed by a local electrician for the City of Belmont enables the focus to shift from commercial and residential buildings in response to sensors, duress devices and burglar alarms. When an alarm or event is detected the nearest cameras move to a pre-determined location. For example if an alarm is raised at the café, the GPAC System™ will move the camera to view the front of the café from two separate angles. At the same time police and security can access the live feed from all cameras, including the cameras inside the café. Simultaneously the GPAC System™ will send alarm triggers to mobile guards and security control centre. All relevant parties will receive a text message and/or email alerting them to the event.
