Genetec's IP video Safeguards German Water Facilities against Contamination
Genetec | Date:
Genetec announced that Trollmuhle, a water supply association located in Rhineland, Germany, chose Genetec's IP video surveillance system to safeguard water facilities against threats and contamination.
The water supply association selected SLK GmbH, a Genetec Certified Integrator located in Saarbrucken, Germany, to assist with the implementation of IP video surveillance system in their main pumping station in Windesheim. Today, Genetec's IP video manages Sony IP cameras situated at the main pumping station as well as at seven of the largest water supply tanks in the region of Trollmuhle.
For added reliability and to optimize network bandwidth, Trollmuhle also used Genetec's IP video's multistreaming feature to configure different video quality settings for live viewing or recording. Also, depending on the setting, a server will record all video from high-priority cameras and then only event-driven video from lower priority cameras.
Additionally, Trollmuhle found by leveraging both Genetec 's built-in motion detection and pre-programming event-alarms, operators were able to receive only critical alerts that suggested forceful entry so they could take immediate action. More so, system security features like configurable user-access privileges and authenticated user logins helped prevent unauthorized system access. Ease of upgrades was also key in making Genetec's IP video their preferred video management system as Trollmuhle can opt to scale their camera count or take advantage of more advanced features at their own pace, and without hassle.
Finally, since the video surveillance system of the Security Center, Genetec's unified security platform, Trollmuhle also has the ability to activate other components such as Synergis access control or pull in third-party business systems and manage them all from the unified platform. Instead of working from disparate systems, Trollmuhle knows the unified platform will enhance operator workflows, reduce training costs and streamline operations.
