Using 3D Tools to Design CCTV Monitoring System for Ghanaian University: A Case of C.K. Tedam University of Technology and Applied Sciences (CKT-UTAS)
Asian Journal of Research in Computer Science
CCTV monitoring system is an essential security tool for visual surveillance accelerating the investigation in potential criminal activities when the need arises. Although expensive, universities mostly with public-access campuses in general, all need this system mainly to maintain safety and security in real-time, allowing legitimate students and staff to access campus resources and concurrently preventing any unauthorized persons access within the campus as well as responding to incidents
... necessary action. C. K. Tedam University of Technology and Applied Sciences (CKT-UTAS) is a university in the Upper East Region of Ghana that does not have such a monitoring system. Since it is a newly established public university, its allocated funds are limited and could not be used to establish such an expensive system. To supplement their ongoing efforts in building security monitoring system, this study constitutes the blueprint procedures for building economical but reliable and efficient CCTV camera system for monitoring the property on campus and also the in and out of students and university staff members. The CCTV system was tested in monitoring vantage security post of the University. After observing and analyzing the trends in data from both the physical and our proposed automated monitoring approach, it can be concluded that the CCTV camera setup outperforms the physical and manual form or monitoring vantage security posts on University campus. Since the of monitoring security post using the proposed CCTV setup is advantageous in requiring lesser human effort and skills, it can be recommended for universities with low income-flow and low budget. This probably can make the university campus more secure and reliable.
