Phase 1 (March 2020)
The unprecedented start to 2020 has taught us many things, not the least of which is the critical importance of groceries. Supply chains became a lifeline, and the dependability of companies like CF produce became more essential than ever. Through their wholesale market in Plant City and warehouse in Dover, Florida, CF Produce offers pre-cooling for local growers, cold storage, and transfer services.
In March, 2020, this family-owned business wisely chose to partner with Surveillance Technology, Inc. (STI) for the installation of a new DVR surveillance system at their Dover warehouse. In the first phase of this project, 8 cameras were added to the property, connected to a 16 Channel H.265 4K DVR by over 1,300 feet of cable. Two fixed turret cameras provide broad views inside the warehouse’s bay doors, while 6 bullet cameras with varifocal lenses monitor the exterior of the same bay doors, along with the property entrances and an additional building. The management team can monitor activity across the location in real time at their newly installed 28” 4K monitor.
The second part of this project included 6 additional cameras trained on the property’s freezers, general storage and office areas. Two motorized-zoom bullet camera were further added for coverage on the side entrance gate and side lot. CF Produce takes pride in building great relationships with vendors, which is evident in their multi-phase partnership and a service plan from STI for their new surveillance system, resulting in 3 years of coverage on parts & labor.
CF Produce has a clear understanding of client needs, which are met with competitive prices, professional service and an incredible array of options. They even carry 13 different varieties of apples! In many ways, their strengths mirror those of STI. Surveillance Technology, Inc. may not sell you apples; but they do offer a cornucopia of surveillance possibilities to support essential businesses in Tampa Bay and across the country.
