National Fast Casual Dining
Video Surveillance Deployment
When a National Fast Casual Operation assessed their security measures and risks, they concluded that they needed greater coverage and capabilities. A technology upgrade for their video surveillance assets was approved for deployment on a fast track basis. Accepting that the current technology was a low end solution they invested in an industry standard platform to monitor their external, parking, FoH and BoH areas. The project contemplated a complete rip and replace and disposal of the retired systems. The solution served to monitor both employee and customer areas to mitigate issues arising from safety and injury claims as well as dishonest employee deterrence and safety training. The solution included Centralized Power Distribution in support of (6) Indoor PTZ Dome Cameras and (2) Outdoor Cameras connected to DVR with remote polling.
