Al Nabooda Automobiles is an exclusive car dealer with five showrooms and service centres across Dubai, United Arab Emirates and the northern emirates of Sharjah and Fujairah. The company was looking for video surveillance solution to help protect its employees, customers and vehicles. It wanted to be able to use the system remotely and as a tool to help analyse traffic and evaluate customer support initiatives. The system also had to be able to perform well in Dubai’s hot and humid climate. Al Nabooda Automobiles opted for a solution in which a variety of Arecont Vision
cameras were installed at each dealership, including the SurroundVideo®
AV8365DN and AV8185DN
. These panoramic day-night cameras eliminate the need for mechanical pan-tilt-zoom devices and reduce the overall number of cameras required for detailed coverage of an area, therefore offering a cost-effective solution. The system allows both live and recorded video to be viewed from Al Nabooda Automobile’s centralised security control centre. The high-resolution megapixel images provided by the Arecont Vision cameras also allow the company to track the movement of parts around its centres.
