I am being asked to spec out a security system for a large park playground.
There has been vandalism at the park at night, and they want to be able to help deter it as well as potentially catch the culprits.
Some issues that need to be taken into consideration:
- Parts of the playground do not have any lighting at night
- It is at the edge of town, so while there is a fence around it, there are wild animals (deer, etc...) that go through it
- The park is pretty big, it is close to 100 acres and vandalism has happened throughout the entire park
My gut feeling is that the best way would be to have a mix of low lux high MP cameras by some choke points as well as some Thermal cameras for motion detection around the perimeters as well as maybe the larger open areas. I would also think about tying it into some sort of analytics system that would help minimize false alarms as well as potentially alerting a security team.
Any suggestions or tips to the proper equipment that would be able to accomplish this. The other issue of course is the budget. While they really are concerned about the vandalism, of course they have a tight budget, so I am trying to figure out how to get the best bang for the buck.
