IQinVision , a provider of high-performance HD megapixel network cameras, smart network cameras, and network video recording systems, announced that JET Oil has installed its HD megapixel technology at 24 of its unmanned gasoline stations. To date, the IP video surveillance systems have achieved considerable success in reducing equipment tampering and in increasing asset protection. JET Oil operates 120 stations throughout Sweden. The integrator for this on-going installation is Niscayah and the supplier of IQeye cameras is the distributor firm Svensk Sakerhetsvideo.
Each JET station is an automatic operation, so no staff are present. Three IQeye 702 cameras are strategically located at each JET station to protect on-site assets, provide surveillance to guard against customers tampering with pumping equipment, and to monitor buildings which house pump technical control equipment. The IQeye images are managed by Milestone open platform IP video recording software and each installation also includes HP hardware.
JET Oil chose IQeye technology due to the camera's excellent image quality even during relatively low-light conditions. JET staff were also pleased with the value delivered per IQeye unit price. Overall, JET Oil management has been very impressed with their video surveillance systems and report that they have experienced less damage at those stations equipped with the combined IQinVision-Milestone solution, compared to stations without video surveillance.
Based on project success to date, JET Oil plans to install the IQinVision-Milestone system in at least 8 more stations over the next few months and to explore connecting each site to a central remote monitoring center. "We have seen a marked increase in our business with gasoline stations throughout Europe," said Ramon Grado, IQinVision EMEA MD. “Our HD megapixel technology is paying off in terms of ROI for our end users in preventing driveaways and in protecting expensive assets. This application for unmanned stations is particularly attractive for gas station companies in Europe and around the world."
