Business challenge

Winnov analogue capture board and Pelco Spectra III PTZ cameras are also installed at Reid

Reid's Heritage Group is committed to the safety and well-being of all its team members in the workplace, as well as the home buyers who visit the construction sites for tours. Through the use of security cameras and remote monitoring, Reid's can verify compliance of safety policies and work practices. Further, with theft and vandalism on the rise, as well as the inherent risks associated with wood frame construction, increasing the scalability of safety and security personnel is required.


Aimetis Symphony™ intelligent video management software is installed in multiple construction sites all over Ontario. Symphony™ increases the scalability of security for Ray Kelly of Reid's Heritage Homes, by allowing him to monitor multiple construction developments. He can therefore verify compliance to safety and accident prevention policies, such as having all visitors to the construction sites escorted by construction personnel.

The loss of materials and equipment from the construction site can lead to delays, down time, increased insurance rates, and damaged company reputations. To combat this, the system was leveraged at night by configuring rules to alert a centralised security guard in real-time when people or vehicles are detected. With a high degree of accuracy in alarm detection, most alerts are actionable, alarming on would-be thieves or even kids taking a short-cut home through the construction site. "Aimetis has helped add transparency and scalability to our organisation through its remote monitoring and accurate real-time alarming capability," explains Mr. Kelly.
