Digital surveillance expert enhances intelligent school with Axis network cameras

Fu Tat Computer Company equips Hong Kong-based international school with advanced surveillance tools to boost efficiency and effectiveness

“The quality, reliability and broad offering of video management functions that Axis offers are central to our success with this solution.” Eric Chan, sales manager at Fu Tat Computer Company

Mission

Axis partner Fu Tat Computer Company is one of Hong Kong’s preeminent experts in digital surveillance solutions. One of its clients, a Hong Kong-based international school, needed to boost campus security to accommodate a massive growth in students and buildings. The school had outgrown its initial campus security resources (originally designed to accommodate only 81 students). A solution to this challenge became imperative, in order to maintain sufficient personal and property safety. Over the years, the school’s student body had grown to over 1,600 students, with new buildings constructed, and an improved security solution had to be devised. The new system needed to be cost-effective and efficient, without compromising the level of security that students, parents and faculty expect.

Solution

The school sought the expertise of Fu Tat, which suggested an IP-Surveillance system to bolster the effectiveness of the security team personnel. This would allow the school to scale its security needs while optimizing the number of security personnel on site. To otherwise attempt to increase security simply by hiring more security staff would become exorbitantly expensive, highly complex and inefficient as even more people crowd around the school grounds. Fu Tat designed an IP video surveillance solution, initially installing fixed Axis network cameras around the campus, which allow the school’s security personnel to maximize their operational capacity. Fu Tat trained the school’s security team in using the surveillance system and continued to help the school expand the solution over a period of years. The school now has almost 70 Axis network cameras on campus, including high-resolution fixed and pan/tilt/zoom (PTZ) network cameras.

Result

“We continued to expand the Axis network video surveillance solution in line with the school’s growth,” said Eric Chan, sales manager at Fu Tat Computer Company. “The quality, reliability and broad offering of video management functions that Axis offers are central to our success with this solution. The other option for the school was to continuously expand its security team, which would have been costly and time-consuming. Instead, we are empowering the existing team with the best security monitoring technology on the market. The Axis solution fit the bill perfectly.”
