Embedded Based 3G Security System for Prison


Safety measures and uninterrupted surveillance are essential in areas like bank safety locker room, defense systems, VIP’s homes and Luxury hotels. Prison is also the place where there is a need for high security and severe surveillance system. There are several techniques used in these particular environments which include the traditional VHS (Video Home System) and DVR (Digital Video Recorder) system.VHS surveillance system usually has the video quality problem of displaying because the analog signal is directly sent to monitor without processing, which results in poor monitoring system. Instead the DVR demonstrates a better competence in the prison. The main objective of this work is to introduce the application of CCMS (Central Control and Monitoring System) with 3G technologies for prison management by using the low cost and low power sensors through the web or wireless network which reduces the manual work involved. It also reduces the money invested and power usage in providing electrical fencing in the prison. The use of motion detection sensors and additional digital I/O devices helps to prevent escapes of prisoners.
