Securing Cape Town’s cosmopolitan playground

The V&A Waterfront is a safe destination with Axis network cameras

“As an internationally acclaimed destination, the V&A Waterfront would only consider a surveillance system that meets the highest, globally recognized standards. Axis fits this description.“ Deon Sloane, V&A Waterfront Senior Security Manager.


Nestled at the foot of South Africa’s breath-taking Table Mountain, the picturesque V&A Waterfront is a jewel in Cape Town’s crown. Set on the edge of a working harbor, it boasts more than 80 world-class eateries, 10 international hotels and over 450 retail outlets, all offering visitors a unique experience. Ensuring the safety of the 23 million people visiting the V&A Waterfront each year requires the full time efforts of a vigilant security team and a state-of-the-art surveillance system that is both innovative and world class.


The cost of maintaining an aging analog system versus a complete replacement was carefully evaluated by the security management team of the V and A Waterfront Holdings (Pty) Ltd. The investigation revealed that the extensive benefits of an IP system far outweighed any marginal savings associated with the upgrade and preservation of an analog solution.


The result has been dramatically improved surveillance footage that is furthermore easy to maintain while being more difficult to tamper with. Not only does the new system offer greater functionality, it also doesn’t compromise on the aesthetical appeal of the property.
