An integrated approach
to turnkey security systems
Combining fibre optic technology with conventional security systems opens new horizons for the industry’s new generation distribution centres.
BIGGER AND BIGGER SHEDS
As ecommerce experiences a boom demanding greater capacity, the size of distribution centres has grown. This makes many typical approaches to security systems cumbersome, prone to extended unreliable connections and wasteful on resources.
COMBINED NETWORK INFRASTRUCTURE
Data cable lengths is limited to 100m. Fibre optic cables of 10km have no loss of signal, allowing for larger fail safe systems avoiding the need for intermediate switches.
Distribution in high value or “target” stock such as fashion ecommerce brings challenges of staff honesty. With Logisticomms expertise stock movement can be monitored even in multiple picking aisles and packing benches.
Are your buildings, stock and staff protected? Ask the experts - how many can you tick?
Can you quickly find an event on your CCTV footage? With our video management software, any area of the picture can be searched for events types (e.g. persons or vehicles) saving time.
Do you know how long you are keeping your CCTV records? At least 30 days is standard, Logisticomms customers have up to 90 days
Would the image be sufficient quality to identify someone? Use new HD technology to improve the resolution.
Are your cameras installed in exactly the right
place? Our bracketry range is designed to achieve optimum positioning (e.g. for seeing into lorries during loading)

Know what to look for
There are particular recurring problems associated with any industry. The benefit of consulting with an experienced industry specialist means that you can headoff typical challenges that you might not be aware of. In effect, you can learn from your competitors’ misfortune and avoid the same pitfalls. Some FAQs include:
Pick and pack loss prevention – contract workers are hard to trace and need to know you have surveillance in place
Narrow aisles – multiple picking tower aisles need a special approach for effective coverage without multiplying equipment
Multi lane docking bays – identify and increase cover for selected bays handling particularly high value goods
Vehicle loading – fixing of cameras allowing view inside trailers during loading is hard without strategic use of long arm brackets
Tracking of vehicles – CCTV cameras with built in ANPR (number plate recognition) can greatly help in finding problem driver events
High ceilings – open handling areas with high bay roof can be a challenge for CCTV installation
Perimeter protection and monitored alerts
DON’T JUST TAKE OUR WORD FOR IT
We've helped many organisations
