Camera surveillance protects water facility

One of the first images engineers at the Madison Water Utility (MWU) in Madison, Wisconsin, saw when they were installing their new Video Surveillance System from Longwatch was a platoon of uniformed soldiers, carrying M16 machine guns and creeping across the property. The water plant survived that “invasion” and now monitors 32 remote sites with video cameras that transmit over a low-speed wireless network to Wonderware HMI/SCADA operator interfaces in the control room.

Wonderware SCADA software was used at the central office to monitor the remote sites. The video surveillance system uses a Wonderware HMI to allow the operator to monitor alarms, and view and manage video clips. The remote sites communicate with the main server via Ethernet radio connection to the HMI computer.
