The Tech Behind the Security

Where technology and human power meet.
Zaladium brings advanced tech muscle from behind the scenes to help catch the bad guys. Each security mission is assigned a group of technology gurus who will help solve security issues with computer analytics, HD cameras, wireless equipment and hi-tech sensors.

When we design a system, our tech team starts with our premium package and then we add-in according to the needs of the environment. Zaladium techs can recommend equipment based on our prior experience with similar sites and situations, and build a custom system using advanced technology that is fully integrated and tailored to your specific needs.

Once that system is operational, Zaladium security professionals continuously assess and fine tune your plan over time based on what we learn from real-time analytics and experience. For example, we understand the life cycle of construction theft and costly vandalism. These types of incidents change over the life of a site. During the dirt work phase, thieves are on the prowl for batteries, portable pumps and generators. When the construction materials start to arrive at the site, the risk profile changes again, and so on. Our proven technology advancements can be applied to your security system on a regular basis to adjust to the changing priorities and risk assessment.

Security by design.
There are two general design philosophies with respect to camera systems: a camera that has built in intelligence inside the actual camera or placed in the back-end recording and processing hardware. Zaladium only offers streamlined camera-core intelligence because we use real-time analytics from the camera to do our job instead of relying on footage from a recording. But we also make sure that our recorders are storing, archiving and retrieving images when needed. Our recorders do more than record – they are full-fledged computers in their own right, able to do post-processing and integrate a wide variety of data from other non-video sources.

Since cameras can identify actionable images on their own, the entire recorder can be offline, but Zaladium will still get alerts from the system, which streams video directly from the cameras, bypassing the recorder, and giving us a level of fault tolerance that most competitors do not have. Each node in the network has its own level of intelligence and they work as an integrated, fault-tolerant system.

Camera technology that outperforms in detail.
When a criminal breach happens at night, our cameras bring out the details, so we can focus on the perpetrator. To do that accurately, Zaladium always uses cameras that are HD or better. Why? So you can get a good look at the person trying to steal your assets. HD resolution and advanced design technology offers usable imagery that performs in low light situations. Our cameras tilt, zoom and pan from side to side, too. They can pinpoint detail from a distance and allow us to follow intruders around a site while we coordinate a response.

Sensors detect motion, temperature and light.
We supplement the in-camera analytics with data from other sources, primarily an array of sensors that can be added to your system, as needed for each deployment. Zaladium’s equipment can detect breaches like: opening and closing doors, windows and freezers. Sensors can detect presence or absence of light, motion, and large equipment (i.e. large pieces of metal, vehicles and construction equipment). They can even detect the presence or absence of carbon monoxide, water, temperature changes, levels AC or DC voltage, battery levels, physical disturbance of an object (gyroscopic sensor), or even something as simple as someone pressing a button (usable in panic button or call-for-service scenarios). Our sensors form an integrated part of our analytics/alerting system and are wireless and battery powered, so we can place them nearly anywhere.

Our technology has a shorter shelf life.
Zaladium’s technology life cycle is shorter. This is a good thing because it means we don’t bring old, out of date equipment to your site. We update our technology faster than anyone, constantly incorporating new advancements into both new and existing security designs.

Our systems are modular and integrated into your custom security plan, so that short life cycles don’t mean we have to rip and replace everything when new tech arrives. Our cameras are partly autonomous, so we can replace cameras, as needed and continuously change out equipment without having to tear down the entire security structure. You can rest assured that we will offer the latest security technology available on the market.
