Dahua Technology uses its security solutions to preserve the Hainan gibbon

Hainan gibbon

International. Dahua Technology has joined a project to protect Hainan gibbons, an endangered diurnal and arboreal primate. In this case, intelligent video technology is used to improve the effectiveness of reserve surveillance and help protect local biodiversity.

In this sense, it is worth noting that Dahua has also contributed to the protection of biodiversity in other parts of the world, through the installation of cameras equipped with technologies such as thermal and full color images, which serve to monitor the vital environment and the state of health of wild animals without disturbing them.

As the company indicates, "many species on Earth are currently threatened by environmental problems and human activities." For this reason, and to help endangered species survive, technology that was initially intended for human security is being used "increasingly as an innovative way to promote sustainability and biodiversity conservation."

Hainan Gibbon Project
Hainan gibbons (Nomascus hainanus) live in the Bawangling National Nature Reserve on the Chinese island of Hainan and are listed as "critically endangered" by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN). One piece of information that reveals their situation is that in the 1980s there were less than 10 specimens left, and although thanks to decades of protection their number has grown to 37 individuals in 5 populations, it is still remarkably low.

That's why Dahua joined the Hainan Gibbon Protection Project in 2021, joining in using smart video technology "to improve the effectiveness of reserve surveillance and help protect local biodiversity."

Keeping an eye on gibbons: the challenge
As longtime tree-dwelling animals, Hainan gibbons are difficult to see in dense forests. "At first, they ran away as soon as they saw me. After a long time, little by little we can 'communicate', especially newborns. We come up and say hello every day. After a few years, we get along well, and even comes directly to us," explains Mr. Zhang of the surveillance staff.

While watching the gibbons can be rewarding for the surveillance team, the process is still complex as they move fast, "sometimes too fast for the human eye to follow." Hence, to keep up with the gibbons, monitors often skip meals and suffer from stomach problems. Bad weather, such as rain, thunder and even typhoons, can make the observation worse.

Intelligent "eyes" thanks to video technology
According to Dahua, the introduction of technology changed all that, as smart cameras can quickly identify gibbons and take photos, allowing monitors to get a closer look at these creatures without disturbing them.

"The gibbon itself is difficult to see in the trees, and they are very vigilant when people approach them. The camera lens perfectly solved this problem," Zhang explains.

Dahua's solution was to integrate a highly sensitive motion algorithm into a smart camera. “The algorithm is continuously trained through Dahua's AI platform to accurately identify and collect images of fast-moving gibbons based on hair color, movements, habits, etc. of the gibbon, in order to provide a scientific basis for the study of individuals, populations, age, sex, developmental trends and dynamic changes in habitats of Hainan gibbons”.

Dahua focused on the protection of biodiversity
Another case is that of the Schwarze Berge Park (Black Mountains), located in Germany, where a complete series of Dahua cameras equipped with full-color thermal images have also been installed, which improve the operational and management efficiency of the park, from the environmental conservation approach.

Dahua also set up a 5G digital monitoring system to help Baima Snow Mountain Nature Reserve monitor 62 species of wildlife, which provided accurate observation and research assessment of wildlife, ecological types and biodiversity of the reserve, thus helping to protect the species that live in the area and its ecological balance. The intelligent system is capable of calculating the animal population, analyzing their activity patterns, understanding their living habits and detecting illegal activities in the reserve such as poaching, illegal logging and overgrazing.

In addition, the brand entered the Antarctic region for the first time by donating 15 smart devices to different local scientific bases. This equipment providing clear images of the flora and fauna in the Argentine region of Antarctica is beneficial in research studies carried out on "The White Continent."

Finally, with its mission of "enabling a safer society and smarter life", Dahua ensures that it will continue to create value beyond security through technology and contribute to the harmonious community of humans and nature.

Security Solutions for Penitentiary Systems Summit - Bienvenida

Bienvenida al Security Solutions for Penitentiary Systems Summit producido por el medio Ventas de Seguridad de la mano del periodista Duván Chaverra e Invitados.

Sesión 1: PANEL - La infraestructura penitenciaria enfocada a la Seguridad electrónica

La gestión de la seguridad en los centros penitenciarios es una práctica que implica la convergencia entre personal altamente capacitado, infraestructura física especialmente diseñada y estrategias rigurosas, esto apoyado en soluciones tecnológicas confiables y complementarias. Entonces, ya que las cárceles en su rol de servicio público tienen el gran reto de reformar a los ciudadanos, a partir de la privación de su libertad, son instalaciones que deben velar en todo momento por la seguridad al exterior, pero también al interior de todos sus espacios; de ahí que la seguridad electrónica se convierta en un apoyo fundamental, pues entrega beneficios imprescindibles a este sector, gracias a que con su constante evolución, responde e incluso se anticipa a las necesidades que puedan surgir. Modera: Duván Chaverra - Ventas de Seguridad Juan José García Ruiz - Magal Security Systems. Manuel Zamudio - Axis Communications Jose Luis Calderón - Eximco

Sesión 2: Soluciones Integrales de Seguridad Electrónica para Sistemas Penitenciarios

Los centros penitenciarios tienen un foco de atención crucial en el tema de la seguridad, por ello en esta conferencia se expresarán las diferentes tecnologías, soluciones y servicios de Magal, de los cuales estos centros deben contemplar dependiendo su nivel de seguridad. Juan José García Ruíz, Director Comercial para América Latina: Magal Security Systems.

Sesión 3: Cómo implementar elementos de cierre de manera efectiva en tu proyecto de seguridad

Muestra de nuevas tecnologías de los elementos de cierre para los recintos penitenciarios Victor H, Manzanilla R, Director de Ventas - ABLOY Critical Infrastructure México

Sesión 4: Tendencias de soluciones de control de acceso en centros penitenciarios.

En alianza CDVI e ISTC, hablaremos sobre el porqué gracias a las necesidades que van surgiendo día a día por un efectivo control de acceso, dentro de los centros penitenciarios, surgen las tendencias de implementación de nuevas tecnologías para hacer más eficiente la seguridad y el control dentro de estos centros. Jorge Gomez, Director of Global Business Development Americas ISTC Nicolás Gallo, Gerente de Ventas Centro América| Región Andina | Cono Sur - CDVI
