Tartessus Center Sancti Petri

Video surveillance providing security in shopping centers

“A system such as this allows me to save time in detecting and locating a problem and also, dueto the quality of the images provided, we can instantly identify the perpetrator.“Manuel Luis Román Sánchez, Technical Director, Tartessus Center Sancti Petri.


Nowadays, shopping centers face the responsibility of being prepared to confront the possible risks that could arise in their facilities, taking measures in that regard and guaranteeing security with respect to acts of vandalism, emergency situations and potential risks arising from their activities. When it comes to setting up and developing a security system in a shopping center, it is necessary to consider a set of objectives of great importance, which include the basic security rules that are the norm for any establishment, dissuasive security to deal with unforeseen events and specific security intended for particular situations or behaviors. The search for a solution capable of meeting all these requirements was the subject of the attention of the management of the Tartessus Center Sancti Petri shopping center located in Chiclana de la Frontera (Cádiz), Spain. This shopping center has an open-air architectural style, with a total area of 36,000 m2 and 112 stores.


As a result of the technology advice provided by Mircom and after evaluating several offers, the management of Tartessus Center Sancti Petri decided to opt for network video from Axis Communications, primarily because they valued the superior image quality of its cameras and the ability to install an open and scalable system ready to be adapted to possible future needs. The system installed by Mircom currently includes eight AXIS 232D+ Network Dome Cameras located in outdoor public areas for the surveillance of the commercial premises. The images captured are viewed from a control center located in the facilities of the security director, where the images are recorded.


The present system meets the requirements submitted by the customer, who was looking for a video surveillance system that was modern, fast and flexible for the shopping and leisure center. The experience gained after one year of operation has confirmed the high reliability of the product, and the exceptional image quality of the recordings, which have even been requested by the civil police on several occasions.
