Nisa Local store pioneers innovative security solution for smaller retailers
AXIS Camera Companion provides superb flexibility, convenience and functionality for a retailer making the switch from analogue surveillance
“We’ve been incredibly impressed with the entire AXIS Camera Companion package – from ease of installation, right through to the end product. We now have a bespoke surveillance setup and integrated analytics solution that will make a real difference to business profitability.” Rav Garcha, Nisa store owner.
Axis led a proof of concept trial for a Nisa Local store in Birmingham (Nisa), in which Axis partner, Defence Security, was brought in to complete the fit-out and optimisation phase of the installation. The project formed the final stage of an innovations showcase for the Association of Convenience Stores, where Axis had successfully demonstrated the ways in which the AXIS Camera Companion package was ideally suited for smaller retailers. Birmingham Nisa store owner, Rav Garcha, challenged Axis to expand the functionality of his store’s current analogue surveillance set-up – including remote central monitoring, mobile accessibility, and the option to integrate cross-functional retail analytics.
Axis partner, Defence Security, installed a state-of-the-art surveillance system which incorporated AXIS Camera Companion for independent retailers. Featuring 13 ultra-compact HDTV quality cameras that requiring no digital video recording (DVR) equipment and offering an easy to access intuitive management platform, the solution perfectly fit the store’s security requirements, whilst providing ample scope for upgrades and expansion.
Despite reducing the store’s overall camera count, the new AXIS Camera Companion package has significantly increased surveillance coverage in-store, as measured against the retailer’s historic analogue system. The phenomenal success of the installation at the Hockley store has resulted in the installation of a network video encoder at Nisa Broadway. Customer, Rav Garcha, plans to replicate the Axis system with the acquisition of more stores.
