Video Surveillance for Large Food Production Company

Background

The client is a large tomato producer with over $800 million annual sales. It supplies more than 40% of the national market with tomato paste and diced tomatoes.


Challenges

The processing facility faces a host of risks at any given time, including bad weather, insect and animal pests, and plant disease - not to mention many human factors. The client was at risk for theft or damage to critical assets, which could greatly hamper production and revenue. The remote nature of many farm sites also proved a challenge for traditional monitoring equipment, which required traditional power supply.

Solution

Early in the pilot, the solution deterred transients from moving through areas where equipment is stored and maintained, and the overall risk of interruption to harvest operations has been significantly reduced. The company has adopted Twenty20 Solutions as a new security standard that will scale up or down with their needs throughout the year.

Benefits & Values

Proactive Security:

With our Manned Monitoring Center on watch at all times, trespassers can be dissuaded from committing crimes before they can even take place. This proactive security approach saves the client time and money in dealing with threats to their product.


Live Video Access:

With the many threats that tomato fields may face, the ability to view the sites at any time and from anywhere can give a great piece of mind. Our equipment makes sites viewable from anywhere via our web-based Novus platform, with customizable views on camera angles and positioning.


Portability:

Farming properties often have changing security needs as the seasons progress and crops are grown and harvested. The portability of Twenty20's solutions allows easy relocation of equipment as areas become more or less vulnerable to threats. Even in remote areas with no power lines, our solar-powered technology enabled the client to easily relocate as needed.

Conclusion

Early in the pilot, the solution deterred transients from moving through areas where equipment is stored and maintained, and the overall risk of interruption to harvest operations has been significantly reduced. The company has adopted Twenty20 Solutions as a new security standard that will scale up or down with their needs throughout the year.
