V5 Portable Security Unit (V5 PSU)

V5 Portable Security Unit (V5 PSU)


The V5 PSU is the world’s first wireless, portable video surveillance solution that can be deployed in under 30 minutes without the need fixed power or communications. This intelligent device includes:

·         Bullet-resistant solar panels, batteries and proprietary power management system

·         Onboard computing with advanced video analytics

·         Onboard storage

·         Wireless communications

The revolutionary power system consists of 1 kilowatt of onboard battery power and can be perpetually powered by V5 lightweight, bullet resistant solar panels. V5 PSU’s are compact and less than 25 pounds enabling rapid deployment and/or re-deployment. Onboard analytics only trigger an alert when a desired object is recognized in the frame. V5 PSU captures geometric identifiers and computes that data to provide accurate object detection within a specified zone. These advanced analytics virtually eliminate false alerts providing end-users accurate real time data, enabling personnel to make real-time security assessments. V5 PSU can be configured and installed in under 30 minutes; all packaged in a ruggedized enclosure for deployment in any outdoor environment without the need for trenching and/or permits. The device allows for streaming video over cellular connection or Wi-Fi and is not limited or tied to fixed power or data cables. V5 devices can be added to extend existing security systems to the outdoors or be deployed as a stand-alone solution. A truly innovative, off the grid technology that is capable of addressing all your security needs. A triumph of innovation over integration.


Use Case: Major US pipeline Experiencing Daily Security Issues

The Problem: A major US pipeline was experiencing daily security issues including vandalism and ecoterrorism threats to substations and pipelines. They needed a solution to quickly combat these issues and the only existing option at the time was deploying physical guards which cost them over $200,000 a day.

The Solution: Once they discovered V5 Systems’ technology they were able to immediately deploy intelligent surveillance solutions at each substation to alert them in real-time if a person or vehicle entered one of their defined zones

 The Results: This technology saved the company over $60 million in the first year. Having these units installed also enabled them to remote check their sites or oil leaks, preventing serious environmental damage.
