Maintaining small town security with Axis
The Town of Pepperell uses Axis network cameras to keep municipal buildings and intersections safe
“The cameras just don’t break. They’re there in the summer and winter, in low light and bright light – everything. They always work.” David Stairs, Communications Director, Town of Pepperell.
Tasked with monitoring the Police Department building and other local sites, the Town of Pepperell Public Safety Complex sought out a solution that would replace its outdated analog cameras. The analog cameras were bulky and required extensive wiring while providing a low-quality image, all of which were factors for the IT Department to research and pick a new solution.
Landing on a mix of Axis fixed and network cameras, the Town of Pepperell is able to keep watch of its Police Department building, parking lots, downtown area and government facilities with ease. High definition imagery was a top priority in selecting the cameras, and further capabilities like Axis’ Zipstream technology and preset locations made the camera choices even easier.
The Police Department has proclaimed continued success with its Axis camera deployment, relying on an exacqVision VMS and recorder on the backend to streamline the systems across town for the Police Chief, Lieutenant and further staff. The Town appreciates its ability to monitor cameras at all hours, saving resources by not having to send police out to remote sites to check in each night, for instance.
