Professional video surveillance solution for the railway sector

Lanaccess > Professional video surveillance solution for the railway sector

The main rail operators trust Lanaccess

Integral solution

Our team of engineers develops both the hardware and the software, in order to offer a comprehensive video surveillance solution.

It is a flexible and integrable solution that complies with the ONVIF protocol. This allows our recorders and VMS to easily manage both IP and analog cameras using our plug & play technology. This also allows our recorders to be easily managed from third party applications.

The Lanaccess development team also has the ability to integrate non-ONVIF solutions.

We know the specific needs of the railway sector

We adapt to the needs of our customers.

When the project has required it, specific modifications have also been made for the client, offering totally new video recorders, adaptations in the software or even the creation of intelligent video analytics developed with deep learning algorithms specific to the sector.

Competitive advantages:

  • We manage and optimize the use of communications bandwidth.
  • Possibility of redundant communications with 4G Router.
  • Detection of fraud in lathes and tailgating.
  • We allow you to remotely and intuitively manage thousands of cameras in hundreds of stations.
  • We facilitate the sending of images to state security forces, digitally signing the recordings to ensure their authenticity.
  • The security managers have complete control of what happens in their facilities.

LAVA-ANALYTICS: The analytical video solution based on Artificial Intelligence that meets the needs of the railway sector

The LAVA (Lanaccess Video Analytics) series provides dedicated hardware and video algorithms based on neural networks to provide Artificial Intelligence to any System.

Equipment and Applications (HW & SW) for intelligent video analytics made entirely by Lanaccess, designed to work efficiently, safely and with high reliability.

Analytics hardware modules boast unmatched performance and energy efficiency, effectively delivering the power of modern AI and Deep Learning.

On the one hand we have stand alone analytical hardware modules, and on the other hand there is also the possibility of incorporating the video analytics module in some of the Lanaccess video recorders.

Unlike traditional analytics, analytics built into Lanaccess AI modules based on neural networks do not require camera calibration or scenarios.



LAVA-RAILS has specific functions for the railway sector, specifically it allows to discard alarms due to the presence of train, this analytic can be used on platforms to detect only the fall of a person in the track box as well as the voluntary crossing of these.

Thanks to this functionality, it allows to discriminate the alarms that occur where a train is detected, thus avoiding false alarms when people board or are on the train.

The Rails analytics also includes LAVA-PROTECT analytics among its functionalities. The intrusion detection analytics allows defining different zones to be analyzed per channel and detects the presence of people in the configured zones,

Thanks to the tracking functionality, it is also possible to configure the following additional rules:

  • Loitering: you configure the seconds that one or more people must remain loitering within a defined area to generate an alarm.
  • Directional line crossing: In addition to zones, lines can be drawn. These lines can be bidirectional (generates an alarm when a person crosses that line in any direction), or directional (generates an alarm when a person crosses the line in the defined direction).


The analytics assesses the number of people in the camera’s viewing area using a model specially trained to estimate the level of occupation density of any space, both indoors and outdoors.

Allows you to configure classification thresholds based on a number of people, to label the scene according to low, medium or high occupancy density.

Thanks to the option to configure density thresholds and the sending of alarms in real time when a certain threshold is exceeded, this analytic facilitates the operator or guardian to activate surveillance, evacuation or momentary prohibition of the passage of people in a certain area. Sent alarms have a photo attached.

Lathe fraud detection and people counting

Our analytics offer data that goes beyond traditional analytics.  Main applications:

  • Being able to detect fraud in the station access turnstiles, by being able to discriminate when two or more people pass through the turnstile at the same time.
  • It also counts, with a reliability of 90%, the people entering and leaving the station.



Specific hardware:

Lanaccess designs and manufactures specific hardware for video recording, optimizing its components and resources, and thus obtaining:

  • Energy saving (consumption less than 15W).
  • Less heat dissipation (fanless).
  • Less breakdown rate and therefore lower maintenance costs

Specific firmware:

  • Increase in the useful life of discs, thanks to its own sequential writing system specially designed for video recording.
  • No prior formatting of disks is required in case of replacement. It allows hot swap making disk change easier.
  • Configurable so that it is only viewable in Lanaccess own systems, increasing the security of the stored information.



Our video recorders have their own real-time operating system, protecting them from massive attacks that attack Windows devices (such as Wannacry) and / or Linux. If we also add the exclusive hardware design, we make it even more difficult to create specific viruses against Lanaccess systems.

The PoE + CCTV switch that video recorders incorporate is a very useful tool for cybersecurity. It allows you to completely isolate the IP cameras from the corporate network, and automatically monitor the connection of devices (if it detects that a camera has been replaced by another device, it can block the port automatically).

In addition, our NVRs have specific tools for detecting denial of service DDoS attacks.



Lanaccess develops a specific configuration wizard for each of its clients, with the aim of:

  • Reduce installation errors and installation times.
  • Increase the reliability of the systems.
  • Ensure that a homogeneous configuration of the equipment park

Thanks to our plug & play system for use of the Onvif protocol, the installation of IP cameras is automatic, providing each camera with a unique IP address and offering a wiring diagnosis for the installer. The Lanaccess PoE + CCTV Switch, in addition to enabling the plug & play of IP cameras in your video recorders, allows automatic monitoring of video and communications.

  • Reduces installation errors, installation times and costs.
  • It increases the reliability of the systems by facilitating the administration of networks, also guaranteeing a fleet of homogeneous equipment.
  • Reduces maintenance costs.
  • Facilitates early detection of incidents.
  • Improves the perception of quality by the user.

Locked camera detection and automatic IP camera reset thanks to the integrated switch. There is also the possibility of manual reset.

  • Reduces maintenance costs.
  • Facilitates early detection of incidents.
  • Improves the perception of quality by the user

With the Lanaccess software platform, you can automatically schedule and generate reports on the status of all your installed equipment, maintenance needs, and view the status of the plant in real time in your web browser.

The Lanaccess industrial system also has the SNMP monitoring protocol.
