Video analytics with sensors for a Metal manufacturer
A couple of years ago, a metal workshop, well-known as a company that kept timely deliveries and supplied high-quality products, started to experience an increase in criminal activities. The misdemeanors ranged from raw material thefts, such as metal bars, ball bearings, and various bits and pieces of construction materials, to damage to physical barriers, properties and ready-to-ship products.
By deploying a video analytics solution based on thermal sensor technology, Securitas was able to create a superior detecting element, not affected by weather variations or environmental variations such as darkness or brightness. Moreover, by adding remotely connected horn speakers and light technology, the SOC operators were ready to mitigate any threats that arose.
Video analytics solutions with sensors
The location is Åhus, southern Sweden, home to one of the country’s most well-known export products – Absolut Vodka, a well-known beverage manufacturer. Its status as a world-unique premium product is exclusively due to ensuring a consistent and reliable product from locally produced raw materials. State-of-the-art security is the absolutely No.1 priority for Absolut Company.
Even though the previous security solution was functional, a comprehensive update was nevertheless required to meet the client’s ever evolving needs and preferences. As a result, Securitas replaced a large part of the existing technical installation with an open camera system, which was integrated together with a number of intelligent video analytics. A video analytic is a software application that assists the video operator by generating events based on a set of predefined parameters.
Thermal network cameras were installed to ensure effective detection in varying weather and lighting conditions. In addition, the existing physical perimeter was strengthened as was the in-house monitoring center and staffed by specially trained security officers on site. The in-house monitoring center handles all coordination, video patrolling, local alarm monitoring and response, and remote-controlled entry and exit to and from the industrial property.
