Business challenge

WIth Aimetis' surveillance solution, Royal Bam has seen a decrease in costs associated with theft and vandalism

With construction material and labour costs on the rise, the Royal BAM Group required a cost-effective solution in mitigating theft, vandalism and safety issues.


Hilson Group installs CCTV, Aimetis Symphony™ software on a PC, and a high-speed DSL connection in the site trailer. At night and on weekends, Symphony™ is configured to alarm on trespassers detected on-site and forward the alarm image through the DSL Internet connection to the monitoring company. Leveraging the remote viewing capability, the monitoring company is quickly able to verify if the alarm is true or false and if further action is required. If trouble is detected, police are immediately despatched.

As a result, numerous perpetrators were detected and many were apprehended by police, causing a decrease in costs associated with theft and vandalism. As compared to the cost of a full-time security guard, Aimetis Symphony™ software paid for itself within 12 months. "By using intelligent IP-surveillance from Aimetis, we were able to find a less costly and more effective approach to monitoring our construction sites," said Ger Heijen, Royal BAM Group.
