Axis Communications ‘dresses’ Harridge

The well-known clothing brand chooses the innovation and quality of Axis network cameras for monitoring its flagship store in Turin

“The video surveillance system is able to offer us HD image quality, perfect for identifying people and any incidents occurring inside our store, as well as ensuring straightforward exporting of video clips and snapshots.” Alessandro Catanzariti, Chairman & Founder of Harridge.


The manager of Harridge’s Turin store, a well-known high-end clothing brand, needed a precise and comprehensive video surveillance system for monitoring the store’s areas, with remote image display capabilities. The owner also needed to be able to monitor the store both during the day and at night, when the lights are left on to illuminate the store windows during closing hours, in a simple, yet at the same time thorough manner and without significant costs for the installed infrastructure.


The video surveillance system, installed with support from Em Energia, consists of five fixed AXIS M1144-L Network Cameras. The chosen items are compact and inexpensive, equipped with integrated IR illumination for optimal surveillance in all lighting conditions and are able to monitor dark areas such as the store vault. The system is completed by AXIS Camera Companion software, which enables accessing high-resolution images, also from the NAS recordings, via any terminal device, whether PC, tablet or smartphone.


The adopted solution has made it possible to obtain extremely reliable and discreet video surveillance without disturbing customers or the overall décor of the store. AXIS Camera Companion software allows displaying images remotely, one of the end-client’s most-liked features, enabling the situation in the store to be checked in real time and with excellent image quality.
