Headquartered in Auckland, New Zealand, Fisher & Paykel is a major household appliance manufacturer with products available in 80 countries worldwide. To meet the increasingly competitive market while gaining stronger presence in Asia, the company in 2007 decided to relocate one of its manufacturing sites to Rayong, Thailand, southeast of Bangkok.
This newest factory began its operation in early 2008 with more than 230 employees on site. In order to strengthen the overall security of the 46,000sqm facility, as well as to optimize the production line efficiency, the company wanted to install a highly reliable network video surveillance which could thoroughly cover the whole site and meet their requirements.
Full HD network camera provides the best possible image quality
Fisher & Paykel soon contacted Digitalcom, the leading security solution provider and MESSOA Channel Partner in Thailand to implement the installation. After a careful planning, some 30 plus MESSOA NCR875PRO Full HD Network Cameras and video encoders were installed throughout the facility to monitor the entire premises, including several key access locations, the perimeter surrounding the main building, critical production process lines, and warehouses.
MESSOA NCR875PRO Network Cameras were chosen for this project to deliver smooth, high-definition 30fps video of the monitored scenes with a wide field of view at 16:9 ratios. Built in with 25-meter IR illuminators, the cameras are capable of delivering sharp and noise-free images even in the absence of lighting during non-operating hours when the facility is vulnerable to security breaches.
The NCR875PRO is perfect for 24-hour surveillance both indoor and outdoor in this project. Further backed by the proprietary Lumii™ Low Light Optimizing Technology and the mechanical IR cut filter (ICR) function, the camera’s light sensitivity is significantly enhanced to deliver exceptional image feeds regardless of what lighting condition there is across the manufacturing facility.
Upgrading security and production line efficiency
Digitalcom also worked closely together with Fisher & Paykel IT team to ensure effective integration with their existing IP network. With a successful deployment, all the video streams can now be centralized and viewed on a single screen in the control room. Most importantly, the exceptional image quality delivered by MESSOA cameras brought assurance to the staff that images could be retrieved quickly and was sufficiently clear for identification and for future reference if any incident did occur.
The MESSOA NCR875PRO cameras
The project leader at Fisher & Paykel was especially impressed by how clear and sharp the images are recorded by MESSOA Full HD Network Cameras. Thanks to the MESSOA solution, the company not only can now secure their manufacturing facilities and the employees with ease, the factory supervisors can also remotely monitor multiple key production processes at the same time in unprecedented image clarity. The network surveillance system allows them to reduce time spent on paying routine visits to the production lines and to manage the factory more efficiently and effectively in order to stay ahead of this increasingly competitive market.
