Case Studies


A used car lot owner had re-occuring issues with intruders cutting holes in the perimeter fence during night-time hours and vandalizing or burglarizing the area. The intruders would not enter the small office building, so the security system was never triggered. The customer did own a video surveillance system and it would record criminal activity but it did not prevent or deter crime.


Securing Rooftops for National Retail Bank Facilities

Challenge:  A National Retail Banking Franchise had a problem with intruders cutting a hole in the roof during work hours when the security system deactivated.  The intruders would come back the next morning when the security systems were deactivated from the night time security schedule to gain entrance to the facility and steal assets.

Burglaries from outdoor “smash and grab” have been costing retailers millions of dollars of loss. In order to detect if someone is trying to penetrate retail store buildings, retailers need to deploy a detection system that triggers activity and activate cameras and authorities. Utilizing the OPTEX Redscan RLS02020S vertical mode detection with Genetec RSA allowed this national retail company to achieve just this.

The outcome:

Protecting Colocation Data Centers

 Most enterprises now have a hybrid data center model — a mix of legacy, private cloud and public cloud infrastructures. Owning a data center, even a small one, is like owning a home — you have to pay for everything and keep up with all the repairs.

Most smartphone users are used to getting notifications, downloading files, playing online games, video chat, and using cloud services.  All of these things utilize the same methods that make the iVision+ Connect (IVPC) possible.
