Turning up the heat on security

Axis thermal cameras safeguard the grounds of Argentina’s exclusive Highland Park Country Club

“After conducting several tests, we determined that the thermal cameras from Axis were the best choice to satisfy our need for high quality detection along with comprehensive coverage.” Luis Bitocco, Systems Manager at Highland Park Country Club.


Highland Park Country Club, a 40-minute drive northeast from Buenos Aires, is an exclusive country club located in the district of Pilar. The club’s grounds cover approximately 650 acres, of which almost half is green space. Families that come to live among this natural space are seeking this type of lifestyle that provides many recreational opportunities – within a safe environment. Thus, in order to further improve security, the country club’s directors contracted the services of Axial Security for the deployment of an upgrade to its surveillance system technology.


Highland’s vast amount of acreage required a comprehensive video surveillance technology solution to handle monitoring of the entire perimeter of the grounds, day and night. Among the technological innovations offered in thermal cameras from Axis Communications, the club opted for those capable of delivering a wide dynamic range under all lighting conditions. The project was implemented by Axial Security, an Axis partner, and it features “Cross Line Detection” video analytics – that run within the cameras themselves – capable of identifying objects in motion via intersection with a virtual line and automatically activating an alert.


Comprehensive oversight of perimeter activity was achieved with the installation of the new cameras, making it possible to provide coverage of one flat expanse of land measuring 365 square yards, and another area of over 200 square yards. In addition, an audio module was integrated along with a smallspeaker amplifier in case of the need to verbally communicate with someone, or to emit an alarm.
