Building surveillance systems are critical to the security of a business, but for some it is important to the way they do business. When your business is to protect people’s property, your surveillance system takes on added importance. Selstor, a self-storage company based in Sweden, offers small storage units for rent. The units range in size from 1 to 30 square meters. Using a networked hybrid surveillance system, Selstor now protects each unit, supplying each with individual alarms and security camera coverage.
According to QNAP, the site now features 12 cameras from Vivotek, including both analog and IP devices, which are connected to video servers. QNAP VioStor NVR networked video recorders provide the backend of the system. The Crestron control and automation system pulls video from the NVRs to the large displays in the reception area. The company’s employees can monitor the video remotely and manipulate the video, viewing the scene from multiple camera angles.
They can also use QNAP’s VMobile app to monitor the site on their smartphones.
Selstor also uses Crestron’s access control and alarm management, which allows staff to open doors and verify alarms, the QNAP says.
