Axis cameras drive down losses at Tractamotors

Axis cameras drive down losses at Tractamotors

Editor / Provider: Axis Communications | Updated: 11/27/2014 | Article type: Commercial Markets

Automotive servicing business, Tractamotors, has realised a 60% reduction in losses for the retail arm of its business following the installation of nearly 50 Axis network cameras to its site in Cavan, Ireland.

Axis Communications and partner, Encom, developed a feature-rich, state-of–the-art solution that combined Axis network cameras and a Milestone XProtect video surveillance system, to replace its legacy analogue system and increase coverage to protect staff, monitor health and safety and reduce shrinkage across the 2½ acre site.

Atul Rajput, Axis' regional director, northern Europe said: “Tractamotors was suffering from patchy coverage from an antiquated analogue CCTV system. The site consisted of an administrative area, garage, retail hardware store, trade yard and a small agricultural machinery division. Its location on a busy main road toward Dublin meant that it received a lot of customer traffic as well as frequent supplier deliveries, which all required close surveillance monitoring to reduce incidents of theft and vandalism and to protect staff and customers.”

Tractamotors initially investigated an upgrade to its current analogue CCTV system but after testing a hybrid digital video recording package, it decided to make the switch from analogue to digital. Ciaran Murray, IT manager at Tractamotors, explained: “We looked at other solutions but, in the end, decided that we wanted something truly digital. Encom's proposal, using Axis network cameras and Milestone XProtect was the perfect solution.”

Over 40 AXIS M32 Series fixed dome network cameras were installed in the hardware and retail areas of the business in order to minimize stock loss and reduce incidents of theft. Encom was able to integrate elements of the existing analogue system into the new IP solution with the use of Axis video encoders.

Tractamotor's shop floor had lots of aisles, obscured by shelving, with no clear field of view. To overcome this, Axis' Corridor Format was used in conjunction with the AXIS M3204 Network camera to rotate the video's aspect ratio to a portrait view.

Coverage in the store was increased from 25% to 80% with the new Axis cameras and incidents have been reduced by an average of 60% overall. Ciaran continued: “The main priority was to reduce pilfering in the store area and increase camera coverage, as our previous system only protected limited high-risk zones. As we were still fairly satisfied with some of the coaxial cameras, we were pleased that they were able to be incorporated into the overall solution.”

Camera count was also increased in other parts of the site to address the health and safety concerns in the tyre and refitting areas of the business. Atul explained: “In total, 48 Axis network cameras were installed across the site. All entrances and exits are now closely monitored so that managers can keep an eye on stock deliveries and any unauthorised out-of-hours access – live footage can even be monitored remotely via an iPad.”

Ciaran concluded: “We are happy with the system. Stock control is much more robust and the overall security of the site has been tightened up considerably. Axis and Encom will be our first port of call for any future solutions.”

 Major Iranian iron manufacturer finds IP solution with VIVOTEK

Major Iranian iron manufacturer finds IP solution with VIVOTEK

Editor / Provider: VIVOTEK | Updated: 11/24/2014 | Article type: Commercial Markets

Increase the security and efficiency of the factory
Foladin Company is located in Amoul city, close to the Caspian Sea in the northern reaches of Iran and not far from the capital city Tehran. Foladin manufactures iron products, and it is one of the biggest companies of its kind in the country. Their facilities include offices and factories that are filled with machinery, as well as a large parking lot and various outdoor settings. As a leading manufacturer, the company was looking to build upon the solid foundations it had already established in the industry by increasing the security and efficiency on its manufacturing site. To accomplish this, Foladin had its sights set on an IP surveillance solution to monitor the production process inside the plant as well as all of the activity that takes place on the premises. Ultimately, they found what they were looking for, thanks to the combined efforts and cooperation of distributor Pooya Fara Negar (PFN) and VIVOTEK, who together provided a cost effective IP solution of superior quality. Before the agreement being made, Foladin Company also made evaluation on products from other leading surveillance brands. However, VIVOTEK was chosen for its high quality and value. By April of 2014, the project was successfully deployed, and fully satisfied the customer's expectations.

Equip the manufacturing site with enhanced security
Faced with the task of tackling surveillance, access control, intrusion detection, and video analysis, a fleet of over 200 VIVOTEK cameras was installed on the manufacturing site. Included in the installation were two of VIVOTEK's sleekest models, FD8136 and FD8166. These ultra-mini fixed dome cameras are not only designed to be compact in size, they pack a mean punch as well. With selectable focal lengths, high viewing resolution, and 1- and 2-megapixel CMOS sensors respectively, Foladin's production halls are well equipped. These cameras stealthily capture superior image quality without drawing people's attention. Three additional models were installed for the outdoor and parking areas: IP8332-C, FD8137HV, and SD8362E. The latter camera is an extremely durable, dynamic, and detail-capturing workhorse. It comes with a tamper detection function, meaning that an alarm will be triggered if anyone attempts to block, redirect, defocus, or spray-paint the camera. The former two cameras excel in resolution, and between them, they have weather- and vandal-proof housing, WDR technology and removable IR-cut filters for all lighting conditions. Further, built-in IR illuminators on the FD8137HV ensure optimal visibility, and the camera is capable of handling diverse lighting conditions both day and night, making it a perfect solution for outdoor environments.

Immensely secure Foladin with VIVOTEK solutions
William Ku, VIVOTEK's spokesperson and vice president of the International Business Division, remarked on the benefits that the installation brought to the manufacturing site: “With over 200 cameras in place, the manufacturing site at Foladin is immensely secure, and the models with which we outfitted the premises provide surveillance that is second to none. Whether inside the buildings or outside on the grounds, ease of video control and analysis mean that our solution has brought a level of security to the company that both operators and employees can feel confident in.”

Avigilon HD solution oversees ski resort in North America

Avigilon HD solution oversees ski resort in North America

Editor / Provider: Avigilon | Updated: 11/24/2014 | Article type: Commercial Markets

The largest ski and outdoor sports resort in North America required a high-performance HD video surveillance system that can ensure visitor and employee safety, protect company assets and reduce theft in its retail and rental division.

Solution
Security personnel at Whistler Blackcomb manage the Avigilon high-definition security system from their control room using the Avigilon Control Center (ACC) 5 network management software (NVMS) with High Definition Stream Management (HDSM) technology. The resort uses over 100 Avigilon HD Dome and HD Bullet cameras, ranging from 1 MP to 5 MP in both indoor and outdoor settings, to monitor retail and rental stores, inventory locations, public loading areas, financial vaults, employee service areas, and numerous doors and gates. Whistler Blackcomb uses Avigilon video encoders to leverage the resort's 100-plus existing analog cameras. The team also uses ACC Mobile to view live and recorded images remotely and Avigilon Network Video Recorders (NVRs) to store up to 30 days of continuous surveillance footage.

World Renowned Ski Resort Protects Guests, Employees and Company Assets
Located just 125 km north of Vancouver, British Columbia, Whistler Blackcomb is a world class ski resort that accommodates over two million skiers and snowboarders annually. One of the main venues during the 2010 Winter Olympic Games in Vancouver, Whistler Blackcomb is the largest ski resort in North America and home of the world-record breaking “Peak 2 Peak” Gondola. In recent years, the resort had relied on an outdated, largely analog-based video surveillance system to oversee its security initiatives. But with 8,171 acres of skiable terrain along with over 100 buildings and facilities on the property, it was inevitable that Whistler Blackcomb would need to upgrade to a versa tile, high-performance video surveillance solution that can efficiently manage the area. “Our video coverage for viewing was antiquated and not effective,” said Carl Rochon, IT Systems Administrator at Whistler Blackcomb. “The number of buildings, the terrain and the multiple business units that we operate certainly posed a challenge and made it difficult for us as a security department to analyze footage right away.” With the assistance of the Vancouver-based security integrator, BMS Integrated Services, the resort considered several surveillance camera manufacturers before ultimately selecting Avigilon. “We felt that Avigilon offered the complete package of quality cameras at a good price and an excellent interface to maximize the effectiveness of those cameras,” said Rochon. “We are continually impressed with this combination.” Whistler Blackcomb has been so satisfied with the Avigilon system, the resort has plans to install over 600 more cameras and 12 NVRs in the next few years. “We are moving closer to our goal of greater employee safety, external guest safety and the protection of company assets by utilizing surveillance technology with better evidence,” Rochon said. “We are certainly moving in that direction with our Avigilon solution.”

Improved Safety
Given the vast terrain and multiple business units that Whistler Blackcomb is home to, ensuring the safety of guests and employees can be challenging for security officials at the resort. Each separate division within Whistler Blackcomb's umbrella of operations has their own security and safety concerns. “Our Guest Services Division would cite employee and guest safety as their top priority,” Rochon said. “It is from this perspective that we endeavor to leverage practices and technology to minimize these concerns.” HD video surveillance has enabled security officials at Whistler Blackcomb to monitor large outdoor areas with greater efficiency, which has been a key asset in locating lost skiers or assessing any incidents. “As we upgrade our cameras across our mountain operations, the only question I am constantly asked from the various business units is, ‘When can we get that new camera solution installed at our location?'” said Rochon. “It makes a much needed difference for improved safety, security and protection.” Despite the size of Whistler Blackcomb, the Avigilon solution has also proven to be a cost-effective surveillance solution for the resort. “We were always told that Avigilon was too expensive to install for a site like ours,” said Rochon. “We found the opposite to be true.”

Minimize Theft
With over two million annual skiers and snowboarders, as well as 1500 full-time and 3500 seasonal employees, minimizing theft was a challenging task for Whistler Blackcomb. Since deploying the Avigilon HD solution, the security team at Whistler Blackcomb has been able to effectively protect the resort's retail and rental stores, inventory locations, public loading areas, financial vaults, employee service areas, and numerous doors and gates. The resort has also been able to use the high-definition footage to identify and prosecute individuals who commit theft. “With each camera installation, it gives us greater evidence to apprehend the culprits as well as deter those that may be contemplating such actions,” said Rochon. “Our local RCMP (Royal Canadian Mounted Police) detachment doesn't hesitate to request video evidence anymore since we have installed our Avigilon cameras.” Almost immediately after deploying the Avigilon solution in the ski rental shop at the resort, the security team was able to catch two individuals stealing expensive snowboards and equipment. “Because of the clarity of the image captured, we were immediately able to clearly identify our suspects and push that picture out to all our managers in the area,” said Rochon. “The perpetrators tried to flee Whistler quickly and it didn't work for them.” The Avigilon solution also positively impacts the resort's ability to affect the costs associated with vandalism and theft. Once the resort completes its Avigilon camera expansion, Rochon estimates Avigilon's end-to-end solution will help Whistler Blackcomb recover $250,000 worth of product per year. “All in all, we probably have half a million dollars worth of theft or damage to property that shouldn't occur,” said Rochon. “Avigilon will not only help us cut that cost in half, but it will also lower our liability insurance cost.”

Going global with top-tier Taiwan products & services

Going global with top-tier Taiwan products & services

Editor / Provider: Lingo Lin, a&s SMAhome | Updated: 11/20/2014 | Article type: Hot Topics

It's only been the last few years since the smart home sector has picked up widespread attention. Sensing such explosive growth, Taiwan traditional security camera makers and component suppliers have all jumped on the bandwagon, all hoping to grab a share of the global market. To date, Taiwan's export destinations of smart home products have spanned across major markets in the US and Europe, with most of their businesses channeled through telcos, distributors, retailers, solution providers, and project-based SIs.

By having a rich experience in working with European smart home brands, Huang of Philio observed some key popular items – the combination of good designed product appearance, stable technology and safety certification assured. “Too-cute designed products can be regarded as toys in some markets. Clean and light design is preferable now when talking about business prospect. Also, safety certification is a must-have for European partners,” he said, adding that Philio also aims for the US market in 2015.

Dextech, a company who has been providing the entire ecosystem of smart home items that include cloud servers, software app and firmware development, said it is also targeting two of the world's biggest markets – Europe and the US.

However, there are still those who see vast potential in emerging markets, notably South and Southeast Asia, Africa and Latin America.

“Our business scope encompasses ‘ROW', or simply, rest of world,” Dr. Chen of Skywatch said, adding that their customers now include Sri Lanka, the Philippines, Dominican Republic and Panama.

“Although Quadrant's target markets are the US, Western Europe and Southeast Asia, we also hope to reach to markets in Africa, Eastern Europe and China with the launch of our new products,” said Quandrant's product marketing director Debby Chen.

Quadrant is in the production of consumer video monitoring with wireless technology and cloud service. Since 1999 it has built its reputation by making quality memory and camera modules for the aftermarket, distribution and reseller channels.
