The City of Malibu was mandated to dredge the Malibu lagoon in response to a NOAA study on a super strain of staph that was developing in the lagoon due to the brackish conditions of the water. The project was highly contested by local residents and surfers of the famous Malibu point break stating that the dredging would ruin the established ecosystem of the lagoon, damage the quality of the surf and hurt local tourism. When the plan was finally approved, there were several cases of vandalism to construction equipment.
The city hired SOV Security to install a wireless IP video surveillance system around the lagoon. SOV utilized HauteSpot Networks HauteWRAP wireless routers and the HauteSHOT microNVR as the central recording server. 4 Innovative Security Design 2 megapixel IP cameras were mounted on two poles located on opposite ends of the lagoon along with HauteWRAP wireless routers. The HauteWRAP routers then communicated wirelessly back to the microNVR located it in the California State Parks entry/guard booth. The microNVR ran Exacq VMS software and reliably recorded the video from the camera and made it accessible in real time over the Internet to the Malibu Police.
The project has been up and functional for many months and all of the components have been very reliable.
