For the realization of this project have been installed three systems MIC IP Starlight 7000 HD PTZ with which has been possible surveillance of remote areas, as well as capture crisp video images of sites selected within the network of caves in the Park to observe and monitor the fauna, including the bats.
Accessible only by boat or plane, the desert of the Mulu National Park, in the rain forest of Borneo, It is a UNESCO World Heritage area since 2000 covering around 875.000 square kilometers. It is the home of some of the caves more extensive and documented on the planet, populated with bats and other unique wildlife.
The management of the National Park requested that CTG Security Matrix, integrator Bosch, advice on how to improve surveillance of areas in remote areas. The objective was to capture crisp video images of sites selected within the network of caves in the National Park, observe and monitor the fauna, including the bats, and provide monitoring in real time.
Regardless of the conditions, as total darkness in the caves, the images need to have sufficient quality to display on a monitor of the Observatory of bats of the Park. Very robust cameras were needed to run properly 24×7 with extreme heat, moisture and darkness. Also, they should be installed inside the underground Chamber in the world that has 175 meters wide and up to 120 meters.
Taking into account all the requirements and environmental factors, three cameras Bosch MIC IP Starlight 7000 HD PTZ (bread, till, Zoom) they were the choice for the realization of this project.
These devices incorporate technology integrated Starlight of Bosch which guarantees very detailed color images in extreme low light conditions. When light levels down to zero, the optional MIC IP Starlight illuminator 7000i allows you to capture high quality images in a complete darkness at a distance of up to 175 meters.
Solid metal housings can withstand extreme weather conditions including winds, rain, fog, powder, 100% moisture (NEMA 6 p and IP68) and temperatures ranging from -40 degrees Celsius to +60 degree Celsius. Camera 30 x optical zoom ensures that the objects can be captured on video easily over long distances.
All tools and equipment had to be transported by air and then taken to the network of caves for installation. This meant kilometers of wiring through the rainforest, respecting all the requirements resulting from being in a protected national park.
Both visitors to the Park, the administration of the National Park and the scientists can, now, observe the bats and other wild animals into deep, dark caves of sections without altering the natural habitat of wildlife.
