PNY protects assets and ensures employee safety with Avigilon

casestudy-pny-mainPNY is a New Jersey-based electronics manufacturer that services more than 50 countries around the world with computer, internet and telecommunications products.

After moving into a massive manufacturing facility that required a considerable amount of improvement, the company needed to upgrade the majority of the machinery along with the surveillance system in the building. To protect the company’s inventory from theft, safeguard the warehouse’s 500 employees and improve daily business and safety practices, PNY deployed the Avigilon system because of the software’s ease of use and the image clarity produced.

An innovative organization itself, PNY uses the Avigilon system for more than just monitoring its warehouse. From evaluating production on the assembly lines to assessing employee efficiency, the Avigilon system has been beneficial from a business operations standpoint at PNY. The organization uses the system as a learning tool and to improve internal protocols. In addition, PNY uses ACC Mobile to respond to incidents remotely and keep track of the warehouse after hours and on weekends.

Challenges

Avigilon LogoA global technology leader within the consumer electronics market required an advanced HD surveillance system to protect inventory and employees inside their new 600,000 sq. foot state-of-the-art manufacturing facility and corporate headquarters.

Solution

PNY uses 21 Avigilon HD cameras to help secure their corporate headquarters, which spans 38 acres with a 600,000 sq. foot manufacturing plant in Parsippany, New Jersey. Avigilon 5 MP cameras monitor various areas within PNY’s manufacturing warehouse including the company’s assembly areas, packaging lines and shipping. PNY deploys Avigilon 16 MP cameras to oversee activity outside of the building as well as the parking lots. The security team at PNY manages the system from their on-site security control center using their individual desktops and four wall-mounted monitors using the Avigilon Control Center network video management software (NVMS) with High-Definition Stream Management™ (HDSM) technology. They also use ACC Mobile to view live and recorded images remotely and Avigilon Network Video Recorders (NVRs) to store up to 30 days of continuous surveillance footage. PNY uses Avigilon encoders to support existing hardware.

Benefits

With the Avigilon system, PNY can protect and monitor valuable, computer products such as flash memory cards, USB flash drives, HDMI cables and mobile accessories that are produced from their corporate headquarters. Avigilon HD cameras also observe shipment trucks as well as the foot traffic from neighboring businesses. The Adaptive IR feature on 5 MP H.264 Dome cameras enables the security team to keep an eye on suspicious activity that may occur in the dark and provide clarity on faces and movements. The ACC software allows PNY to accurately identify and resolve incidents – such as theft or accidents – in a timely manner and use the recorded footage as a learning tool to improve business and safety protocols. PNY security officials leverage ACC Mobile to watch over the premise and inside the warehouse on off-hours and weekends.
