Alarm call-outs reduced by more than 50%
Securitas add network speakers to perimeter security solutions on construction sites
“The number of call-outs has fallen dramatically. On average, we’re seeing between a third and half as many call-outs as before.” Mika Aro, Sales Manager at Securitas.
Many infrastructure companies’ sites and projects are located centrally in the cities, which makes them a natural target for intruders and vandalism. The Finnish construction company Kreate had problems with intruders entering its construction sites, especially in the evenings and at night.
Kreate requested an upgrade of its existing security system from its partner Securitas, to keep intruders at bay. Securitas commissioned the installation of Axis network speakers to complete the Kreate security system that consisted of existing surveillance cameras and alarms. AXIS C1310-E speakers are now connected to the perimeter protection of the construction sites and are activated automatically if anyone crosses the perimeter and trespasses, and a pre-recorded voice message is played.
“These speakers are easy to install. They provide a rapid response to alarms and are effective when it comes to scaring intruders away from the sites,” says Rene Piiparinen, Solutions Manager at Securitas, who designed this voice solution. For Securitas, this means that there are significantly fewer call-outs for its guards every night. “The number of call-outs has fallen dramatically. On average, we’re seeing between a third and half as many call-outs as before,” says Mika Aro, Sales Manager at Securitas. The speaker can also be used to instruct staff in emergency situations.
