Effective Video Surveillance for this Massive Facility
Meet the subject of our case study, a sprawling manufacturing plant in the Southern United States.
● One mile wide and a quarter mile deep
● Surrounded by a massive parking lot
● 24/7 production
● 600 employees
● One outdated video surveillance system
140 Cameras and NOTHING to Show For It.
Even though this facility already had a large number of cameras installed, their equipment was outdated and lacked the resolution to identify employees when it mattered the most.
It was nearly impossible to hold employees accountable or backtrack mistakes, and costly problems like these were all too common.
Property theft and misplaced inventory
Fights on the floor and in the break room
Speeding and accidents in the parking lot
And our personal favorite: the time someone drove a forklift off the dock and no one saw a thing
SOLUTION: SmartSearch AI
One of the most powerful features of this facility’s new video system is SmartSearch AI technology. When something is misplaced or an incident occurs, their team simply goes back in time on the video feed, draws a box around the item or person in question, and the system searches the video database to pinpoint every location and time that person or item appeared on camera.
Shortly after installing this system, the facility used SmartSearch AI to recover $200K worth of misplaced inventory. A search which would have taken hours or even days in the past took minutes to resolve, and their investment in the new video system paid for itself!
SOLUTION: Integrated Systems
Network integration allows their cameras to collaborate through AI and coordinate security access points, motion detectors, alarms, and even key fobs. This gives them the ability to track an individual’s movement throughout the facility.
There’s also greater accountability and security when allowing outsiders to access the building. Visitors at any door can be routed on a video feed to a specific contact to be identified and admitted to the building using a smartphone app.
SOLUTION: Complete Visibility
This facility’s legacy video system was compromised by massive blind spots, not the least of which were their sprawling, 400-yard-long inventory corridors.
Among the many innovative cameras offered by our partners at Axis Communications, special corridor cameras made it possible to monitor these areas for accidents and mistakes.
SOLUTION: Powerful Resolution
When people know they can be seen and held accountable for their actions, things change pretty fast. In fact, with new, next-gen cameras in place, this facility saw a major culture shift where employees now volunteer when a mistake is made.
In the case of the parking lot, it’s now easy to determine who’s at fault in an accident. (Better yet, the new cameras even track speed so speeders can be disciplined!)
