Thermal cameras from Axis protect NedTrain against intruders and vandalism.
“We are also very satisfied with our choice for Axis technology. They have made it possible to benefit from crystalclear images by day and by night, which help us create a safer environment for our people and for our customers’ rolling stock.” Ronny Koster, ICT project leader, NedTrain Haarlem.
NedTrain wanted a scalable solution for 24-hour surveillance of the open grounds.
NedTrain opted for four types of IP cameras which in combination provides a solid solution for warding off unwanted visitors and supply excellent images all day and all night. The thermal cameras are equipped with analytical software, which detects intruders and vandals at an early stage. Next, the security guards can make a more detailed assessment from a central room using the optic cameras. This will limit the number of false alarms.
The Nedtrain Haarlem site has currently been equipped with Axis cameras, installed at strategic locations. Unwanted intruders are easily intercepted and the damage to railway carriages will be limited. In the first weekend that the system was active, a group of graffiti vandals was detected and arrested in collaboration with the police. This minimized the damage; the system has been proven to be highly effective.
