Axis secures the industrial activities of SAPEC

The French leader in electrolytic coating has chosen Axis Communications to equip its production sites

"We wanted the best. We opted for a future-proof IP-based network video solution from Axis Communications."Bertrand Papon – Technical Director of SAPEC.


The Technical Director of SAPEC was constantly on call to deal with false alarms from a system installed several years ago. The goal was to limit the time made for troubleshooting, while also focusing on the fight against industrial espionage and theft at three production sites.


On the advice of its local integrator, SAPEC opted for a network video solution consisting of Axis network cameras. This solution permits real-time monitoring for instant troubleshooting, at any time of the day or night, from a remote site. In addition, video clips are recorded to permit the tracking of possible offences. Finally, certain cameras used to secure the site at night also permit the monitoring of visitor movements during the day. Axis network cameras are connected to switches across all sites. Remote monitoring is done via the 3G network or from a local workstation.


The solution’s performance exceeds the expectations of its Technical Director, Mr. Bertrand Papon. The entire system is secured and operational day and night. For Mr. Bertrand, real-time remote troubleshooting means an end to constant call-outs to the site, which is located in a particularly isolated, mountainous area. From a financial perspective, the cost savings from preventing possible break-ins make the investment highly profitable.
