A slice of small system surveillance with Axis

King’s Subs & Pizza’s uses an AXIS Camera Companion edge storage solution for cost-effective analog replacement

“After comparing what an IP surveillance system could deliver for the same price as an analog solution, IP was a no brainer. Our Axis cameras provide peace of mind and really save us time and money.” Dave Young, Owner, King’s Subs and Pizza.


Following an attempted break-in, Andover, MA restaurant King’s Subs and Pizza needed a cost-effective security solution. As a small business in an industry with razor-thin margins, King’s Pizza went looking for the highest quality surveillance system that fit within their budget. They also needed cameras that could provide the most flexibility of installation to cover all the important areas with minimal hassle. Additionally, as self-admitted technology novices, King’s Pizza required a system that was user-friendly and easy to learn.


After contemplating installing a consumer-grade analog DVR system, King’s Pizza elected to go with the similarlypriced, yet much higher quality Axis IP solution with in-camera edge storage. They installed five 720p HDTVquality AXIS M10 Series Network Cameras in key locations throughout their store. All video footage is recorded onto the SD cards within the cameras, and the system, once configured, runs self-contained without the need for a computer or laptop thanks to the AXIS Camera Companion software. King’s Pizza can even access real-time or recorded video on a smartphone whenever they need.


Not only does the IP surveillance system provide reliable, round-the-clock security for the restaurant, but the owner can also use the footage to track business operations, monitor cash register transactions and investigate incidents. The ability to view archived video has had an immediate positive effect on the restaurant’s bottom line. The owner can track whether an ingredient such as premium steak is being used too much, or see if there is a reason for discrepancies in each night’s receipts. Every dollar counts for small businesses, and Axis network cameras help ensure they are all counted correctly.
