Chain of shops
In 2019, the chain of shops “E” successfully installed PROXIMA control units in all its shops for protection against theft at night, and an e-Vision video surveillance system for 24-hour monitoring. In 2021, it was evident that the security level needed to be raised even further in specific locations such as the checkout area, the loading and unloading door and the emergency doors.
There were cases of customers escaping through these doors with unpaid goods during the opening hours of the premises. The required implementation was relatively easy due to the installation of only one device per shop: AI16UNIT. It was only necessary to update the firmware of the existing control units to make them compatible with the D-Pulse function and connect them to the AI16UNIT unit, which enabled the Artificial Intelligence functions on each video channel protecting sensitive areas. The IP cameras already installed in 2019 were left unchanged and no maintenance work or new wiring was required.
Thanks to the line-crossing function (virtually created during configuration of the AI16UNIT module), attempts at shoplifting can be identified, also based on time slots.
