Leading German bike manufacturer protects its new logistics center with Axis network cameras
MissionCube was founded by Marcus Pürner in 1993 in Waldershof, Bavaria. The company enjoyed rapid growth and now manufactures racing and trekking bikes, mountain bikes, and e-bikes as well as equipment and sports accessories. As the market leader in Germany, it now sells its products in 63 countries all over the world. Evidence of this growth is also reflected in the company’s headquarters. In order to meet the growing demand, company founder Marcus Pürner opened the new bicycle and logistics center (BLC) in Waldershof in 2014. The modern and impressive site brings together production, assembly, and warehouse facilities. Every day, deliveries of bike components arrive and shipments of new products head out. What was needed in this case was a professional video solution for monitoring the exterior.
SolutionFor security cameras installed outdoors, ruggedness is a must. On the one hand, they must be able to withstand rain, wind, hail, or sun. On the other hand, they have to ensure uniform video image quality, regardless of how lighting conditions change throughout the day or year. And finally, there is also the potential for vandalism. Robin Fröhlich, division manager at ProComp, has been working with Axis network cameras for many years and knows their technical capabilities. He opted to use AXIS Q1615-E Network Camera on the outside and AXIS P1365 inside the BLC.
ResultThere are currently about 100 cameras in the new bicycle and logistics center, which monitor everything that happens at the building entrances and in the loading area. Symphony video management software by Aimetis makes learning the new security system intuitive and quick. A particular recording can be retrieved quickly and easily. The monitoring system functions reliably and according to Matthias Schmidt, technical operations assistant at Cube, more expansions are already in the works.
