Skult’s salons are ‘a cut above’ with Axis cameras
Network-based video surveillance brings secure and relaxed environment
“We work almost exclusively with Axis’ high-quality cameras, since they are easy to install and configure, require minimal support and have unique image quality. Axis is a camera manufacturer you can trust, which is important for us when we put our reputation on the line and guarantee the quality of the systems we install at our customer’s premises.” Omid Ghannad, founder and owner of GH Data.
Hair salon chain Skult has eight salons across Lund, Malmö, Jönköping, Växjö and Stockholm, as well as a hairdressing school, Skult Education. To increase staff and customer security and reduce the risk of theft and robbery, Skult decided to install cameras in their salons. Skult wanted a fully flexible solution with the best possible image quality; a solution that was not only cost effective but also easy to install and use. Skult also needed the ability to monitor footage of all their salons remotely to ensure uniformity of displays and other interior environments.
As Skult wanted a single provider for both IT and camera equipment, it chose its current IT installation engineer, GH Data to install the surveillance system. Networkbased cameras were the obvious choice because they met the requirements for ease of installation, high image quality, flexibility, scalability, and central administration which were important due to the locations of the salons across the country.
Skult has a total of 11 cameras in use: one camera for each salon, one at the hairdressing school and two at the central warehouse. It now has a solution that is easy to use with high image quality, and has resulted in improved security and a safer working environment for staff and customers. The main advantage is that HDTV quality video is available if incidents occur which allows for quicker identification issue resolution. Skult can also easily ensure the consistency of salon design and displays across all its Swedish sites.
