Paris 'geeks' bar streamlines operations and heightens security with IP video surveillance

Mission
Dernier Bar is new establishments open since June 2012. The management wanted to implement a system of video surveillance to ensure good business management and at the same time ensure the security of the premises day and night, taking into account the layout, ease of use of the system and its potential for adaptation.

Solution
The decision to use Axis network cameras was taken on account of their reputation and price. Axis partner CISDEC brought with it expertise in terms of general advice, financial controls, installation and maintenance, and as a result Axis Camera Companion and four Axis M3204-V network cameras were chosen.

Result
The bundle solution was implemented in half a day due to the PoE technology where the electricity uses the network cables. The management can now use Axis Camera Companion (ACC) unassisted. The cameras can be operated from a PC or from a smartphone and in due course the management hopes to add other cameras.

Conditions to be respected
Certain factors had to be taken into account concerning the premises. Firstly, the solution had to provide maximum coverage taking into consideration the layout of the place, the many doors, the stairs and the different floors. Additionally, there are numerous figurines in the bar area that form the main decorative feature and which could not be damaged. The Bar needed a simple solution that was easy for the management to use and which would be autonomous with regard to the connection and overview of image recordings.

A ready-made solution
The Bar already knew about Axis cameras due to their reputation and price. Afterwards CISDEC provided their expertise with regard to general advice, financial considerations, installation and maintenance. Given the particular constraints of the Dernier Bar, the solution to use ACC made perfect sense. It is the simplest small video surveillance system on the market. All videos are recorded on SD cards that are put in the cameras; therefore it is not necessary to use digital recorders or servers.

“The major advantage of ACC is its efficiency: it is simple to set up with a very clear interface and is user-friendly for the client. This is a solution which is able to respond to the client's needs because it is ideally suited to small and mid-sized businesses,“ adds Stephan Napas from CISDEC.

The choice of cameras was focused on 4 Axis M3204-V network cameras, equipped with convenient features such as video motion detection and tampering alerts, varifocal objective lens and pixel counter.

“We delivered a bundle solution, that is to say one that is comprehensive including the hardware, camera and software solutions. This package has convinced the client of the quality of Axis products,” explains Napas.

The installation took just half a day thanks to the bundle solution package and PoE technology (whereby the electricity passes through the network cables). The management was able to then quickly make use of the system and is already considering the installation of additional cameras for better monitoring of the premises.
