Innovative self-storage business offers secure unmanned environment 24-7

Axis helps Orange Box to develop a state-of-the-art surveillance system for unrivalled security

“I am extremely impressed with the quality of the surveillance system, the broad view of the cameras in place ensures we have 100% coverage of every single aisle.” Carl Hedley, director, Orange Box Self Storage Ltd.


Orange Box Self Storage Ltd (Orange Box) is a modern storage facility based in Sunderland. The 2 acre outdoor site is home to 165 bright orange coloured newbuild steel containers. These weatherproof containers offer clean, dry and secure storage to a wide range of customers; both domestic and commercial. When redeveloping the site, Orange Box was looking to include a state-of-the-art automated access and surveillance system that would eliminate the need to provide 24/7 manned security, and reduce expensive lighting costs from continued use while the site was unoccupied.


Orange Box turned to Axis partner, 2020 Vision Systems, to create the integrated security system designed around AXIS Camera Companion. AXIS P33 Series Network Cameras were selected for their clear picture quality and broad field of view, with the ability to span this extensive outdoor site. The solution also provides the ability for remote monitoring when the site is unmanned plus link with efficient automated LED lighting to reduce lighting costs.


The Axis solution specified and installed by 2020 Vision Systems has provided Orange Box with a reliable, highly advanced surveillance system that can be accessed and monitored 24/7 both on and off-site. It also enables the site itself to be securely accessed by customers at all times, giving them the reassurance that the site has the state-of-the-art security in place for their safety and convenience.
