Warehouse Security Camera System

Situation

An existing warehouse with no security camera system. The owner is mainly concerned about health and safety following an accident when a non employee entered the warehouse and was hit by a fork-lift truck. Fortunately there were no lasting injuries however this prompted a full review of the security camera options including monitoring of loading bays, warehouse racking and other key areas of the site.

Proposed System

With such a large site, without going over the top, it’s almost impossible to cover every angle. The owner identified the most important issues and the proposed system covers those.

Extensions of the Surveillance System

Due to there being 29 proposed cameras, 2 of our 16 Camera HD-TVI Recorders were selected. This not only handles the capacity issues but also gives built in redundancy. This follows the principles explained in the section about why larger recorders are not always better. There are numerous areas that are not covered in the proposed system. It’s difficult to offer full coverage of such a large area as this however the system can be expanded in a very modular fashion. Once the second DVR was at capacity with cameras, a third could be added if required and so on.
