Network Cameras Keep an Eye on Your Properties
Shinseage Dream Express (SDE) is one of the leading logistics companies in Korea. She also owns a department store as her subsidiary company with very strong channel distribution and is responsible for the business of their domestic shipments. In recent years, the sales growth of this department store increased dramatically, and the need for efficient delivery is highly demanded. In order to meet their quick expansion, SDE set up five warehouses in five cities separately to guarantee the best, fast-delivering service for their customers. However, SDE was experiencing an increasing need for the reinforcement of its security surveillance, resulted from external and internal theft during this period. Then SDE was searching for a surveillance solution that gave them real-time control and remote monitoring for their warehouse security.
After an in-depth purchase survey, they contacted MYIPCAM CO., LTD., one of VIVOTEK's system integrators and distributors in Korea. They quickly accepted MYIPCAM's advice using VIVOTEK's remarkable SMB solution as their prior choice since the VIVOTEK's full-featured pan/tilt/zoom network cameras (PZ6112) with the free-bundled 16-CH recording software ST3402 can entirely meet the need of IP-based surveillance. “Such total SMB solution without extra money investment is really cost-effective and considerate for our retail store management,” said the owner of SDE. “Network video surveillance really brought us numerous of benefits like cost-saving, flexibility, and scalability so that we can easily extend our rapid expansion in the future.”
In the first phase, the system integrator totally installed 16 VIVOTEK PZ6112 network cameras at different critical points in warehouses and used the recording software ST3402 for as a central console. PZ6112 comes with a powerful dual-codec engine that allows the operators to select different video compression methods, either in MPEG-4 or in MJPEG, to optimize image quality and bandwidth efficiently. Combining a 10X optical zoom lens and a high-quality CCD sensor, it can not only easily zoom in on the critical areas but also capture and distribute the superior quality videos over the networks for remote monitoring. The wide pan/tilt movement, controlled by the application software can help locate any position in the viewable area within seconds. Additionally, with the free 16-channel recording software, the operators can view the real-time video transmitted from 16 cameras on a single monitor and also set up the system for event-controlled or scheduled recording via a central console without requiring any special training. Each camera can be configured respectively to record a specific time before or after events, or even to conduct the two-way audio communication.
The owner of Shinseage Dream Express was so satisfied with the outcome: “We are so surprised with the real-time video quality delivered over the Internet. Because of the reliable network cameras from VIVOTEK, now we relatively can ensure the operation facility and warehouse security, especially in peak season. So, we decide to invest more this year, installing additional 13 VIVOTEK PZ6112 network cameras to confront our rapid business growth in the coming years.” Networked video security technologies definitely represent a giant leap forward for retail security and obviously the VIVOTEK's SMB solution is a big hit for those SMB customers.
IP surveillance system has the advantage of easy installation since users can get rid of tangled cable lines of analog systems. “Shinseage Dream Express moved their location to a new location several months ago, and we helped them move and reinstall 8 network cameras in new site without much effort,” said the owner of MYIPCAM CO., LTD., Nam.
High-quality Resolution and Flexible PTZ Control
Embedded with a CCD sensor and equipped with a motorized zoom lens, the VIVOTEK PZ6112 delivers superior high-quality video even in low light conditions. With pan/tilt functions, users can easily remotely control the network camera and see the details in each corner of the warehouse.
Set up a Complete Management System
After installing the IP surveillance system, it effectively reduced loss of goods and deterred illicit thefts. Furthermore, if any part of the conveyor belt malfunction, they can know the situation immediately and handle it soon. In addition to the local monitor system, the owner in the headquarters also can remotely view and supervise his regional logistics center through the internet browser. It serves the function of centralized management that not only promotes the efficiency of trouble-shooting but also strengthens their operation management.
The owner of Shinseage Dream Express was deeply impressed with the clear image quality and the user-friendly interface offered by VIVOTEK's network cameras. “VIVOTEK's network cameras are much more reliable and useful than we expected. Remote accessibility really saves us lots of time and manpower to supervise our regional logistics centers. It becomes only one man's responsibility to take care of the security and management of the whole warehouse!” said the owner of Shinseage Dream Express.
