Hikvision State-of-the-Art IP CCTV system protects bespoke vehicle company.
Hikvision, a global leader in video surveillance equipment, and their South African partner Sensor Security, have successfully completed the implementation of a state-of-the-art IP CCTV system to protect GRW's bespoke vehicle manufacturing premises.
Surveilling the perimeter of this large facility and protecting the plant from unauthorized access was a key security concern for the company as manned patrols of the perimeter had proved ineffective.
Edmund Casaleggio, Sensor Security's Sales Executive says, "We designed a solution that would automate the process of securing the boundary and eliminate the possibility of human error. At the same time, we wanted to implement an intelligent camera infrastructure to enable remote monitoring of the production process.
The integration of analytics with the Hikvision Smart IP CCTV cameras is a significant added advantage, flagging alarms only when intrusion occurs within the specified range. We did not need to use alarm inputs and outputs to connect passives and actives on the DVR/NVR, and this will save significantly on future maintenance of the system. It also reduced installation time significantly.
"The full HD, 1080p real-time video is a huge asset for the supervisory staff and the camera itself, protected within its IP66 vandal-proof housing, has withstood the rigours of a harsh industrial environment really well. True day/night operation thanks to its 30m IR range and Digital WDR and 3D DNR also contribute to the high-quality video at all times. GRW is already reaping the benefits from the integration of analytics with the IP cameras and is set to continue for many years.
