Last bar before the end of the world

Dernier Bar implements Axis network cameras to watch over the first bar for “geeks” in Paris

“We are located in a tourist area and our establishment is popular with different types of people, not all well-intentioned: pickpockets, for instance. It seemed important to us therefore, to have a video surveillance system which can record general comings and goings and have the ability to spot small movements in cases of shoplifting. The price offered by Axis Communications determined our choice.“ Cyril Grillon, Co-founder of Dernier Bar.


Dernier Bar is a new establishment open since June 2012: 400m² over three floors dedicated to the “culture of the imagination”. The management wanted to implement a system of video surveillance to ensure good business management and at the same time ensure the security of the premises day and night, taking into account the layout, ease of use of the system and its potential for adaptation.


The decision to use Axis network cameras was taken on account of their reputation and price. Axis partner CISDEC brought with it expertise in terms of general advice, financial controls, installation and maintenance, and as a result AXIS Camera Companion and four AXIS M3204-V Network Cameras were chosen.


The bundle solution (hardware, four AXIS M3204-V Network Cameras and AXIS Camera Companion software) was implemented in half a day due to the PoE technology where the electricity uses the network cables. The management can now use AXIS Camera Companion unassisted. The cameras can be operated from a PC or from a smartphone and in due course the management hopes to add other cameras.
