AMBERSTONE INSTALLED A SOPHISTICATED INTEGRATED SECURITY SOLUTION TO PROTECT SAINSBURY’S FLAGSHIP DEPOT IN DAVENTRY – THE LARGEST OF ITS KIND IN EUROPE – FROM PREVENTABLE LOSSES.
As a leading national supermarket chain, Sainsbury’s relies on a large network of distribution centres operating 24 hours a day. With so many square metres to cover, effective loss prevention is obviously a challenge. At the same time, when the smooth running of each depot is crucial to profitability, security systems cannot be allowed to obstruct day-to-day operations.
When Sainsbury’s recognised that their analogue CCTV systems were no longer delivering the performance required, they turned to Amberstone. Their task was to design and install an IP security system for Sainsbury’s flagship depot that would improve image quality while integrating seamlessly with existing infrastructure.
Working in close partnership with Sainsbury’s security team, Amberstone identified the key objectives that would steer the project – namely, to design a fully integrated IP CCTV system that would deliver not just improved performance but longevity too, to meet the company’s environmental commitments and to minimise disruption during and after installation.
Thanks to their flexible approach to problem-solving, Amberstone were able to devise a scalable solution that would work hand-in-hand with Sainsbury’s preferred network video recorder (NVR) platform. Having made a full analysis of the site, Amberstone deployed a range of IP cameras delivering a minimum of 1080p resolution, carefully selected and configured to suit each location, from narrow corridors to wide open spaces.
At Sainsbury’s request, Amberstone used their deep knowledge across all aspects of security technology to incorporate fully networked intercom, access control and fire exit control systems into the install.
