Axis surveillance system provides Wyke Farms with a sustainable solution
Axis and PG Security help eco-conscious dairy farm innovate with greener security system
“The Axis-based system has given us a sustainable, intuitive solution that will be able to support us as we grow.” Jason Fewell, group engineering manager at Wyke Farms.
Wyke Farms wanted to upgrade its existing security systems at its main dairy and add additional cameras to the network at its newly-built biogas plant site. While the farm had an existing CCTV system, which incorporated a number of Axis and other brand IP cameras, farm managers were aware that a more reliable and flexible approach could be achieved by transitioning to an Axis-only solution. Any new system needed to be as environmentally sustainable as possible, while providing excellent quality surveillance coverage to help the farm demonstrate compliance with stringent food safety standards.
Working with existing partners Axis and Milestone, installer PG Security specified a solution that incorporated 25 Axis network cameras. Vandal- and dust-resistant AXIS M3005-V Network Cameras were specified for their hygienic properties and ease of installation, while externally, AXIS P1344 and AXIS P1347 Network Cameras, incorporating Axis’ environmentally friendly day and night functionality, were used for increased energy efficiency.
The new Axis-based system has provided Wyke Farms with a reliable, high-quality, advanced surveillance system that can be accessed and monitored 24x7, both on and off site. The new solution provides the farm, and its customers, with the peace of mind that health and safety remains at the forefront. Thanks to Axis’ commitment to sustainability in the design, manufacture and supply of all its cameras, and the efficiency of IP video technology, the overall installation was in keeping with Wyke Farms green commitment.
