IP video surveillance for building complex security and a deterrent against petty crime

Aventis Tecnoliving housing complex chose Axis cameras for an underground parking video control center

“The video surveillance architecture, equipped with Axis cameras, is discreetly integrated, with intrusion detection systems and home automation technology within apartments and shops. This allows all those who live and work in the complex to go about their lives in complete safety and with total peace of mind.“ Cesare Allegri, Manager at Aventis Tecnoliving.


The Aventis Tecnoliving housing complex, recently constructed in the new heart of Brescia, Italy, in a strategic position for access to amenities and key locations within the city, aims to give residents and visitors the opportunity to make use of underground parking areas with total peace of mind, at any hour of the day or night. It became apparent that a security system was needed that would both serve to protect people and property within the complex, and act as a deterrent against petty crime and vandalism.


The company which owns the building opted for the creation of a closed-circuit video control system based on a 1-GBPS LAN network with around 40 Axis minidome cameras, four 10’’ LCD monitors positioned by the elevators as a deterrent, a control room with remote connection and AXIS Camera Station video management software. The system covers both underground parking levels, the first of which is reserved for residents and the public, and the second, used almost exclusively by the stores that are located within the complex.


The positive results achieved within the Aventis Tecnoliving structure are deemed more than satisfactory. The solution adopted led to the perpetrators of a car theft being identified, and the system guarantees the safety and security of the entire area without the need for on-site staff. Looking at the future, the client has requested that a further extension of the system be considered.
