Part I: Building a Reliable Camera Network for Early Detection

To provide timely AI wildfire detection alerts, we’ve collaborated with our partners to establish robust and cost-effective Wide Area Networks (WAN) of Wildfire Detection Cameras. These networks utilize the best-in-class AXIS cameras, renowned for their crystal-clear daytime and night-time imagery, perfect for AI analysis.

Together with industrial-grade Teltonika Networks routers, powerful video streaming software, cutting-edge AI wildfire detection SaaS, easy-to-use mobile apps, and scalable SASE service, we develop a Design Blueprint for WAN of Wildfire Detection Cameras. We are going to share our Design Blueprint in a three-part article series.

 

Part I is building a reliable WAN of surveillance cameras. There are three key components.

The Power of AXIS Cameras:

We use AXIS cameras, and we recommend them in our Design Blueprint.

  • Unmatched Image Quality: AXIS cameras capture crisp visuals, crucial for accurate AI detection, enabling LookOut Wildfire Detection SaaS to function seamlessly.
  • Effortless Integration: Setting up an AXIS camera to send images to LookOut takes mere minutes, thanks to its streamlined HTTPS Post integration.
  • Remote Control: AXIS PTZ cameras offer responsive remote control, allowing for efficient adjustments as needed.

Reliable Connectivity with Teltonika Networks Routers:

Many of our cameras reside in remote areas, relying on cellular networks for internet access. That’s where Teltonika Networks industrial cellular routers come in. They’re:

  • Reliable: Durable and robust, they weather harsh environments while maintaining steady connections.
  • Easy to Manage: The router provides powerful automation tools to switch traffic between SIM cards, establish site-to-site VPN, and restart the device if persistent network problems are detected. Installation and configuration are straightforward, saving valuable time and resources.
  • Cost-Effective: Their high C/P ratio (cost/performance) makes them a budget-friendly choice for secure camera networks.

Leveraging Live Streaming for Education and Engagement:

Our new AI Biodiversity-Care (ABC) service aims to bring nature closer to people through live video streams. We use the CamStreamer app on AXIS cameras to broadcast captivating scenes directly to YouTube and other platforms.

The Benefits of Live Streaming:

  • Public Engagement: Live footage showcasing the beauty of natural habitats fosters a deeper connection between viewers and the environment, raising awareness and appreciation.

  • Cost-Effective Outreach: Sharing nature’s wonders via live streams requires minimal investment, providing an accessible and impactful way to reach a wider audience.
  • Promoting Coexistence: Witnessing the interactions between humans and animals in real-time encourages understanding and empathy, paving the way for a more harmonious relationship with our natural world.

By combining state-of-the-art and cost-effective technology with a dedication to environmental protection, we strive to minimize risks and share the beauty and serenity of nature with the world. Teltonika agrees biodiversity management automation is a great use case too! Join us in this noble endeavor!
