Below are just a few examples of recent projects where Matryx has been engaged to provide innovative security solutions to our clients.
Woollahra Municipal Council – Sydney
Gap Park is one of Sydney’s most spectacular tourist destinations with locals and tourist groups alike enjoying the magnificent views on offer. Sadly, Gap Park has a somewhat notorious reputation as well.
Matryx Consulting has been selected to provide technical and design expertise for stage 3 of the Gap Park CCTV system expansion. The upgraded system will include a level of intelligence to allow operators and Police real-time access to alarm events and to very quickly and efficiently survey the peninsula from remote locations.
It is hoped that the new technologies will play an important role in incident reduction in the area.
Tablelands Regional Council – Northern Queensland
The Tablelands Regional Council oversees 11 town centres and some 64,000 square kilometres of land area making it one of the largest council in Australia.
Matryx Consulting has been selected by the council to undertake the design of a networked CCTV system. The initial design will see cameras located in the central business district of Mareeba, and will include a networked video recorder and wireless communications links to allow remote monitoring from within the Mareeba Police Station.
Hobart City Council – Hobart
The facility managers of this CBD property had experienced ongoing issues with trespass, drug use and opportunistic theft in and around the building for some time. A CCTV system was in place yet was proving ineffectual as image quality was typically very poor.
A comprehensive assessment was undertaken of the system which identified 3 key action points:
Realignment and Refocussing of cameras, camera positioning was deemed to be adequate but lens selection was poor meaning images of persons of interest were usually too small to assist Police. Changing and adjusting camera lens overcame this issue.
CCTV head-end replacement – An upgraded control system was recommended that could interface with the existing cameras. Image resolution was increased and archive periods doubled as part of this process.
Alarm Switching – Static guards were unable to monitor all cameras simultaneously so alarm switching was implemented to provide a more manageable solution.
Perimeter Solution, Western Suburbs
How do you manage more than 10,000 sets of car keys? That was the challenge posed to Matryx Consulting during a risk assessment of a large motor vehicle compound.
The answer was to design a perimeter solution that would envelope the entire 2km boundary of the complex and significantly reduce the instances of trespass, joyriding and vandalism.
SCA Hygiene – Melbourne
SCA Hygiene is a multi-national organisation that specialises in the manufacture and distribution of paper products for the consumer market. Their facilities are located throughout Australia, New Zealand and Fiji.
Matryx Consulting has been awarded the contract to undertake a security risk assessment and to provide upgrade recommendations for their 15 hectare site in Box Hill, Victoria.
The site presents many challenges due to its large footprint and because its perimeter is very difficult to secure from an intrusion perspective. Due to the nature of the facility, theft is not a major concern but OH&S exposure from unauthorised visitors is and has been a major focus of the security review.
