Modernizing Security for Parks and Recreation

Securing Parks and Rec Facilities with Netwatch by Security Pros

In the not so distant past, there were days when people visited skate parks, water parks, or even public recreation centers and used them solely for their intended purpose. Today, securing these locations and facilities has become a requirement to maintain safe and secure spaces, as record use of our country's outdoor spaces continues to rise.


Securing these spaces can be as simple as adding a few cameras to an existing video surveillance system that’s already on location. However, the case many times is that not only must an entire security solution be deployed, but the desire to actively monitor live video and receive push alarm alerts is required to maintain a safe environment in real-time.


Netwatch is the solution

Netwatch provided by Security Pros is ideal for Parks and Recreation operators and managers who desire a complete security suite option, offering services from video surveillance to access control with live voice intercom and active camera monitoring capability.


This solution is ideal for remote management of one or more locations by delivering:

· Restroom Door Control

· Proactive, live stream video surveillance

· Dog park observation

· Playground observation

· Walking trail monitoring and communication

· Aquatic center access control

· People counting for access limiting or demand management

· Augment or replace expensive guard services




Tech Tidbits

Netwatch Communication Hubs, commonly referred to as central station monitoring centers, are at the core of the Netwatch Proactive Video Monitoring service, they are the epicenters of all monitoring activity from access control to video surveillance. The advanced detection software employed behind high-quality IP cameras ensures that any human movement on your property during non-operational hours is viewed live, challenged with a personalized audio warning, and responded to in accordance with your customized protocol.

Unauthorized intrusion detection can occur at the perimeter of the space or facility, allowing time for detection, intervention, and escalated reaction if necessary. This is accomplished by sending immediate alerts to live agents at our Netwatch Communication Hubs, ensuring that immediate action is taken. Local authorities can be assured that the incident they are responding to has been verified and is not a time-wasting false alarm. Plus, additional information can be provided to the responder’s’ dispatch center, providing them real-time situational awareness as an incident evolves.


System Health Monitoring

And while the idea of immediate reaction to incidents is ideal, no system will work properly 100% of the time. For this reason, it is terrible to discover, when checking footage after a security breach happens, that a camera was not working at the time of the incident. Even if you have installed a quality camera system, without checking the equipment on a daily (or hourly) basis, important video evidence can be missed. The Netwatch platform is designed to eliminate this problem with our System Health Check feature. Our software makes sure your system is always on. Netwatch System Health Check will automatically ‘ping’ each system for any sign of failure. If something is not working, we receive a timely alert and we fix the problem – before it causes you to miss critical video.


Netwatch System Health Check automatically oversees thousands of devices and other elements on our client sites, including:


· Cameras

· Detection software

· Servers

· Audio

· Power

· Network stability


If any issues are detected, our software can automatically raise a ticket with our service department, send an alarm to the Monitoring Hub or send notification to the client. Your pre-defined protocol determines what action will be taken.
