Moving heat sources spotted in yards

With the recent value of scrap metal heading upwards, dealers are turning to more advanced security solutions to combat theft and yard break-ins.

Security specialist Trigion is providing high-tech solutions at a major Kent scrap yard, including the use of thermal cameras and a ‘virtual perimeter’ system.

Thermal cameras make it clear where a heat source is and when it moves. They can also display an electronic trail showing where movement has taken place, making detection easier.

In addition, by setting a virtual perimeter on-screen, a specific area can be monitored more closely and an alarm triggered if someone enters it. This perimeter can be altered remotely to meet changing situations, such as the arrival of a greater quantity of metal.
