|Intellio cameras provides surveillance to Tesco one of the most advanced non food distribution centres in Central Europe |
One of the most modern Non Food distribution centers in Central Europe, Tesco's logistics base admits trucks 24/7 making the loading areas busy at all times. As a result, the goods are typically stored for mere hours or days in the warehouse. During the deployment of the surveillance system several factors had to be taken into consideration, such as the heavy traffic, the varying light conditions, and the peculiarities of the various areas under surveillance, e.g. offices, warehouses, parking lots and valuable goods.
The entrances and the loading areas are observed by static indoor and outdoor cameras, while the corridors between the shelves are kept under surveillance by PTZ cameras providing detailed and crisp images of even remote parts. Besides monitoring vehicle flow and protecting persons and goods Intellio cameras serve an important role in labour safety, as well, at the facility housing almost 200 employees.
The cost-efficiency of the implementation was further improved by utilising the existing IT network on the premises, while maintining operation as a standalone system. There is a single server responsible for recording the footages provided by all 50 cameras, with the video displayed on the screens of the security personnel, whose work is greatly enhanced by the automatic alerts sent by the system in case of security events. Live or recorded footage can be searched by authorised personnel through the client software. In addition, bandwidth and server capacity are under a lighter load by virtue of the developer's very own Intellio Video Stream recording method, an effective way of economising on existing resources.
