Agent Vi Detects Perimeter Intrusions and Unauthorized Movement at High-Value Manufacturing Sites

Leading Italian steel producer, ASO Siderurgica, sought a surveillance solution for three expansive facilities (36,000 to 70,000 sq. m.) that host valuable manufacturing machinery. Due to the threat of break-ins, unauthorized entry and theft, they sought to monitor and secure the sites around the clock, and especially during the night hours and on weekends when there is a smaller staff presence.

In order to deliver the highest level of security to their customer, systems integrator LAIS S.r.l deployed a best-of-breed solution combining real-time video analytics from Agent Vi, IP cameras from Axis Communications and a recording and viewing application from Genetec. The result has been a superior level of surveillance for ASO Siderurgica, with Michele Perini from ASO Siderurgica commenting that “We are more than satisfied with the performance of Agent Vi’s real-time analytics solution. The security at our sites has been upgraded significantly, and this was achieved through integration with the cameras and video management software in our surveillance system…”

The excellent results have been achieved in spite of the challenges at the sites, with Mario Pasquino, Project Manager at LAIS adding that “Each of ASO Siderurgica’s sites had vulnerable spots, including some with poor or no lighting, that were causing a nuisance and resulting in robberies. Following significant testing, it was clear that Agent Vi’s analytics, combined with thermal IP cameras from Axis, deliver the best solution for this customer. Immediately after installation we started receiving detections of unauthorized people and cars at the sites. With the instant display of the intruders’ movement paths in the Genetec Live Viewer, the company security team now operates at an optimal level.”
