Blue Ridge Log Cabins, a custom manufactured log home builder, has installed an ADT Security Services video surveillance system to monitor safety and security at its sales center and two manufacturing facilities. The system was originally installed to help protect expensive building materials and quickly become a management tool to improve efficiency, safety and customer service.
The digital video surveillance system was installed at the company's sales center and manufacturing facilities in Campobello, S.C., outside of Greenville/Spartanburg. The installation included cameras at a new 110,000-square-foot production facility where craftsmen construct and assemble sections of each log home.
Ninety to 100 percent of every home is completed at the factory, which allows Blue Ridge Log Cabins to ensure a uniform product with a guaranteed price. According to the company, all homes are equal to and often better in quality and value than site-built homes. Models range from 900 to 5,000 square feet.
“We were looking primarily for a security camera system; the ADT system provides that security surveillance and also helps us monitor traffic in our sales facility, in addition to alerting us to customers arriving on site,” Smith said. “It has made our overall operation much more efficient.”
“Many companies find that once you have the security infrastructure in place, the system can be used not only for security purposes, but for everyday operations as well,” said Jeffrey Bean, vice president, ADT Retail Sales and Operations. “The system installed at Blue Ridge Log Cabins allows the company to get added value from its security investment.”
“The system has become a very useful tool for us,” said Smith. “We rely on it to help ensure a safe environment for our employees and customers and to help us produce a quality product more efficiently.”
