Clinic uses IP-Surveillance to improve security, and productivity, and secure investment
"Staff are now aware that there is a very reliable system in place that we use to manage quality. It has had a marked positive influence on overall behavior – people even walk differently."says Mohamed Bera, Services Manager, Life Brenthurst Clinic.
Life Brenthurst Clinic in Johannesburg, South Africa needed to modernize its video surveillance system. As with similar facilities throughout the city, petty crime and instances of low productivity stemming from people evading responsibility needed to be managed, and Life Brenthurst Clinic was determined to be at the forefront in excellent service delivery. An existing analog CCTV system, when it did reveal incidents, delivered such poor image quality that it was useless for providing evidence or helping to manage the problems. Moreover, it was unreliable, inflexible, and increasingly difficult to maintain, and expansion would have been very costly. A replacement was urgently required.
Axis Partner CAMSECURE, a provider of integrated surveillance solutions, recommended replacing the analog cameras, multiplexers and VCR’s with Axis network cameras and a recording and monitoring solution from NUUO. The first phase of the installation comprised 18 AXIS 207 cameras indoors and an AXIS 214 PTZ outside the main entrance. For budgetary reasons, the outside analog cameras were retained but brought into the digital environment via an AXIS 240Q video server. A dedicated Gigabit Ethernet network was installed to transport the image.
