Hikvision’s IP system protects bespoke vehicle company
GRW is one of South Africa’s leading providers of sophisticated road transport trailers; designing, manufacturing and servicing a wide range of bespoke vehicles, each configured to provide a solution to the unique transportation needs of an individual client. GRW has now invested in an IP video surveillance system to protect its premises against unauthorized access and to monitor the large, modern production facilities, and is already reaping the benefits from the integration of analytics with the IP cameras.
“From the outset we knew that the proposed video surveillance system should successfully serve a dual purpose, helping supervisors and managers monitor the workshop operations during opening hours and securing the perimeter 24 hours a day,” said Edmund Casaleggio, Sales Executive at Sensor Security.
“There was also a need to make the combined system as simple and easy to operate as possible, ensuring that operations staff had unrestricted access to the workshop video feeds while not being distracted by the security cameras and vice versa for the security officers, who are best served by complete concentration on securing the premises.” Following extensive consultations with GRW staff, the final design of the dual-purpose system involved a total of 18 Hikvision cameras, eleven on the perimeter and seven in the workshop area, all feeding in to a 32-channel Hikvision NVR at GRW, and to Security Sensor’s control room.
A Smart Perimeter
Perimeter patrolling with guards having proved ineffective, GRW was also keen that the introduction of cameras did not mean that an individual would have to be assigned to constantly manage the video surveillance system around-the-clock. Therefore, the Hikvision DS-2CD4012F-A Smart 1.3MP low-light box camera was selected to monitor the perimeter of the plant, with active use of the cameras smart analytics intrusion flags ensuring that GRW’s security officers and Sensor Security’s control room are pro-actively notified of any unauthorized movement around the premises.
As well as the smart intrusion detection, the Hikvision DS-2CD4012F-A also features smart codec, smart focus, smart VQD, smart face detection and smart audio detection. They also benefit from 3D DNR and digital WDR, and the day & night IR cut filter allows successful video operation down to 0.001 Lux.
A Watchful Eye on the Workshop
Seven Hikvision DS-2CD2132-I 3MP mini dome cameras keep watch over all operations in the workshop area, assisting the supervisors and managers to remotely monitor processes on the floor. This process is made much easier and more efficient for these staff due to the integration of the Hikvision DS-9632NI-ST 32-channel NVR with a PC, ensuring that operational staff are only presented with images relevant to the production area. A Real Success “This newly-installed state-of-the-art IP CCTV system automates the process of protecting GRW’s premises against unauthorized access and monitoring the production facilities while eliminating the possibility of human error,” Casaleggio said. “GRW is already reaping the benefits from the integration of analytics with the IP cameras and is set to continue for many years.
